Fifth Amendment or Fifth Attorney – WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE IN WORKCOMP?

Dear Tina:

Thank you again for the hotel discount vouchers. I am heading out to Newport Beach shortly, but I had promised Stewart Reubens of Grancell that I would respond to his recent emails by today. That was compounded and exacerbated by the unbelievable denial of medical care out of Maximus, the California ‘end of the road’ agency. The doctor received ex-parte records and he was either off-his-meds, had too many martinis, or might be subject to drug testing or else? I found other reports by the same doctor on the internet.

Maximus personnel was very nice when I told them we have a problem with the report as the fraud is egregious. They told me on Friday to send a request to them for reconsideration before sending it to the the WCAB appeals people. This is it. It is my experience that when dealing with WorkComp legal/medical fraud, facts mean nothing to the perpetrators, and legal chicanery prevails. Taking matters to the Virtual Streets seems to be the one and only hope for injured workers. My list of fraud allegations and perpetrators is long indeed, provided, in part, already to the FBI – Palm Springs Office.

Well, that’s another quandry, as it is somewhat out of synch. Before I hit the road, I will try to respond in this letter to both Stewart Reubens and the Maximus help people, and copy “supplemental people” as Stewart calls them, and I will put it on the internet as well.

DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATH// STUDY THIS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd6P1Ue2aGg

As I looked through it all, I remember that in 2013, CorVel had authorized modified care to include a couple acupuncture and chiropractic treatments, but Grancell again refused to set up those appointments and the Judge had to tell Ms. Mall to just do it….that took about 9 months. Ms. Mall, the first Grancell attorney, has a knack for telling whoppers, and she is the first to incorrectly tell doctors that I had a head injury in 1993 and another in 2008. No doctor until January 9, 2012, Dr. DeGoede whom the CIGNA Employee Assistance Program sent me to is the first I had ever been diagnosed with a brain injury. In the reports to doctors that Grancell is now attempting to have me evaluated by, Stewart is telling them of his opinion (non-medical, based on no medical evidence) that I have had previously diagnosed brain injuries and treatments. They both, Kim and Stewart, lie when they say I withhold info of a car collison of 1993 and 2008. Both I recovered from, and neither had ever suggested a head injury. Kim and Stewart seem to like to practice medicine at my expense.  They also like to put the 2012 EEG report of head injury to falsely show it as a 2010 report of head injury, although the doctor apologized for the mis-dated report, but any thinking person could read the report and see it was in fact done in 2012.  The doctor was not even in California in 2010, when Grancell attempts to mislead doctors.

The Maximus report I received last week falsely states numerous things, including what appears to be a set up for a fraud investigation at my expense. Somehow that doctor says the right shoulder was the primary industrial injury and that the injured worker [me] did not report a head/ brain injury until weeks later following an incident at home.  They disregarded the medical records I provided, and just seemed to follow exparte communications,

Well, that’s further insult to further injuries. Take a look at the DWC-1 form that I was given on January 9, 2012, without any insurance information on it and see what it says about hitting my head real hard.

These actions are quite similar to the deceptions caused by Ms. Mall when she omitted approximately 300 pages of medical records to QME/AME doctors in 2013, and encouraged them to falsely opine prior head injuries, moving the date of reported injury not weeks, but into the future of 2013, and they used medical records of 2012 as ‘evidence of pre-existing head injury’.  When brought to THEIR attention, those corrected the date of injury on their report, but not their false allegations, nor did I get any of the recommended since January 2012 medical treatments.   UFB, for sure, but it has kept me from medical care over 3.5 years, and has kept the legal/medical files churning, to the point somehow Grancell got the Judge to authorize even more evaluations.

The Exclusive Remedy and Labor Code of California does not say insurance carriers are to provide evaluation after evaluation….it is allegedly about providing medical care as an exclusive remedy to civil rights and law suits.  It apparently requires DOJ/FBI/DA intervention to help companies like Grancell with proper interpretations of the law, and perhaps RICO support.

Now, I have provided the Maximus report to my State Senator and have asked for intervention to involve the District Attorney – Corporate Fraud Unit and the FBI for similar task force. I am hoping that Michael Grabell of ProPublica is tracking what I send, or perhaps Ana Garcia of Los Angeles is another investigative reporter that may become involved.

So, for the record, I have asked Fred Sachs, CNA Adjuster and Stewart Reubens, Defense counsel of Grancell Stander to cancell all the appointments that were in violation of my right to be heard by the Judge at WCAB with ADA accommodations (first they said they would not accommodate for ADA, then they changed the date of the hearing, then they cancelled the hearing, then I started receiving notices of appointments with non-specialists in the field of brain injury, auditory processing, vision processing and chiropractic and acupuncture have been denied again.

My total out of pocket expenses to date because CNA refuses to provide medical care now exceed $43,350.44 since date of injury, 1/9/12. While all the medical reports indicate that I received medically necessary treatments, they don’t seem to account for the fact that I paid for most all of it myself. CNA, for a brain injury, paid for a few clinical psychologist sessions in 2012 along with some chiropractic; in 2013, they paid for 6 physical therapy and a few more chiropractic, in 2014 they paid for some acupuncture and 24 sessions of speech therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy, cut short from the 3-6 months of care that was requested.

The current CorVel modified recommendations included neuro-optometry eval, neurology consult as requested last April 2014 to review the EEG with corollary medical evidence. Let’s get those issues handled, sort out the inaccuracies of the Maximus report, let’s get the FBI and DA-Corporate Fraud units involved with the CNA Fraud Unit representative and let’s organize a claim audit once and for all.

The allegations by Maximus that I sustained a shoulder injury at work and a head injury at home…. well, that seems to be a last straw, doesn’t it? The Maximus report also alleges there is no evidence for continuation of any of the ACOEM/MTUS guideline recommended treatments for traumatic brain injury. I think that doctor also suggested I failed to return to work at some point.

Holy Moly…. Tina, tell them how hard I have been trying to get back to work and that your hands appear to be tied by the defense counsel and carrier? Remember, in November 2012, my attorney of the time, in collusion with Ms. Mall of Grancell, attempted to coerce me to accept a $100,000 settlement, forfeiting all future medical, disability and it required that I quit my job (oh yes, it also mentioned the shoulder injury along with the closed head injury, but Ms. Mall’s team apparently threatened my primary treating doctor’s office more than once with dismissal from the alleged MPN if the early records regarding the right shoulder were not changed to ‘non-industrial’ ….they tried to call me MMI orthopedically last summer and did so this December, deferring to Neuro/psych doctors for head/braininjury after cancelling my appointment for their final report.

I have had no Primary Treating Doctor since December 2014, and Dr. Hilda withdrew from the case in April 2015, and Stewart says it’s not his job to help me get medical care, and that I can choose my own doctors. If that was so, why did I get stuck with an Orthopedic Surgeon since April 2013 with no knowledge of brain injury, and every referral was dismissed, and finally Ms. Mall said his referrals didn’t count because he is bone doctor not a brain doctor. D’oh — not verbatim, but words to that effect.

Because I retained incompetent legal help for 30 days in 2012, then 9 months in 2012 (that guy tried to get me to accept $100K, less attorney fees, with the above restrictions and said, “Nobody will believe you have a brain injury” and I said that’s because he didn’t get me to any brain doctors as everybody recommended, and I assured him I am INJURED NOT STUPID. The next attorney was retained in January 2013 because of the pattern and practice of Ms. Mall (and now Mr. Reubens) to omit medical records with intent to deny medical care—- and fortunately for other injured workers, that attorney who mis-represented me for merely 90 days, is allegedly retiring and just returned my file. He, like the other 3, refuse to release their liens, and as their staff says,. “Oh don’t worry, the 15% doesn’t come out of your part”…. They seem to fail to grasp that no competent attorney will clean up their … failure to represent and failures to do their jobs…. and be willing to split a fee. These applicant attorneys seem to be bottom feeders, yet Ms. Mall and Mr. Reubens like to suggest that there’s something wrong with me for having dismissed 4 incompetent representatives.

I have to head out to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program and I have found a local psychologist who will meet with me and help me, I hope, sort out the rest of my life since it also does not not promising that I will be able to complete the Coastline ABI program, and will have to find a way to return to work at the conclusion of the Summer Session.

I have asked Fred Sachs, CNA Adjuster, again for a treating doctor of neurology and neuro-psychology in the Palm Desert/Palm Springs area. Dr. Seymour Young, neurologist who ordered the EEG last year doesn’t take WorkComp, but he may be willing to be on my team via Medicare. The vision and auditory processing issues are not going to be resolved because Kim and Stewart get people to lie about the case; Wyndham didn’t hire me in multiple locations nor send me to Big Bear to help out in that mess because I was not a valuable employee…. I used to help managers even in Hawaii with management reports, including employee retention and motivation and training.

I suggest you ask Michael Dougherty to immediate get going with a Claim Audit and I will follow up next week with the Senator’s office, the DA-Corporate Fraud Unit, the FBI, Maximus and Grancell. I will also prepare a DOR to get back in front of the WCAB Court, to be heard on these issues of fraud and failures to provide medical care and other violations.

I just can’t do anymore than this today, and it upsets me just having to think about the criminal fraud I have been subjected to by this swath of apparent white collar criminals.

Are these matters of the FIFTH AMENDMENT or can they resolved with a FIFTH ATTORNEY.

do no harm but take no shit eitherCNA Brain Injury Treatment Kit

TIME WILL TELL, HUH?

Let’s plan to meet in accordance with interactive process guidelines, some Thursday or Friday in Palm Springs and I will ask the new doctor in Palm Springs if you can be included in a session where we talk about return to work accommodations planning. One time, in January 2012, Daniel Elliott, then adjuster, spent a full session on the phone with Dr. DeGoede, who explained back then the seriousness of my brain injury and the need for immediate medical care. CNA did not have a neurologist or neuro-psychologist to send me to then either, and Daniel relied on Dr. Goede’s contacts to get me to some specialists, then all hell broke lose when the extent of my injuries was evident. I have a long drive ahead, so, we’ll deal with more of these details later in the week.

Help me now?

Thank you.

Doctor Shopping, Patterns of Continous Harm and Fraud? “I OBJECT!”

Dear Paul, Legal Secretary to Stewart Reubens, Partner Shareholder at Grancell Stander Reubens et al:

cc: SReubens@grancell-law.com, fred.sachs@cna.com, michael.dougherty@wyn.com, tina.jordan@wyn.com, scott.mixon@wyn.com, patricia.lee@wyndhamworldwide.com, mary.falvey@wyn.com, shane.riedman@cna.com, michael.grabell@propublica.org, workcomplinda@gmail.com, lindaayres@aol.com, wynlinda@gmail.com, and other Stakeholders

I OBJECT TO THE COVER LETTER, THE MEDICAL INDEX, AND ALL SCHEDULED EVALUATIONS you sent.
I WILL NOT PARTICIPATE in further evaluations PRIOR TO A COURT HEARING AND HOPEFULLY, FBI INTERVENTION ONCE AND FOR ALL.
This is my 4th attempt to write a simply “I OBJECT” letter.

Feel free to set up the DOR, but note I am only available on Thursdays/Fridays. I request additional time to review what you sent, and to document the falsehoods, again. I have to do it every time, and there is no remorse for acts of apparent fraud by defense counsel. Somehow, they think they are doing their job, in full and complete violation of California Labor Code and the US Constitution. Yeah, I know, who cares about the law and fraud when it comes to the Mega Billion Dollar WorkComp industries.

If the Judge will kindly void the liens of the incompetent counsel retained for 30 days, 9 months, 3 months and 45 days, perhaps I can retain legal counsel. I have accomplished more without counsel than with. Go figure that. You may be banking on that belief that there is ‘no money’ for an Injured Worker attorney and I suspect they may be right, therefore, we will make lemonade. We will use this case to ensure that Wyndham and CNA and Grancell are properly exposed for the harm and permanent injuries they cause to injured workers, and how they take money from State taxpayers as profits beyond measure. So be it.

There may be no money in Fraud indictments, but I am willing to guess that some bright young FBI agent or some Seasoned Veteran FBI agent will get a promotion after investigating all the little frauds and unclean hands of this case. Or, maybe not. Maybe it’s ok with that Department too. I don’t know. I aim to find out. Dr. O’Brien suggested that if I have Human Rights Complaints to ‘take it to The Hague’… Looking into that too, although that may be a bit more challenging.

What treatment has CNA authorized? Remember, I paid for most of the life-saving treatment. What brain injury specific evaluations has CNA authorized? Not even an MRI? Couldn’t provide a treating neurologist and in collusion with WCAB Info & Assistance officer abuse of a disabled American, I got stuck with an Orthopedic Surgeon who was later threatened with expulsion from the MPN for trying to help me, and his referrals were all mocked and non-recommended (and left off the proposed Medical Index)

How did I get to SCRIPPS BRAIN INJURY REHABILITATION CENTER in the summer of 2014? (Remember, the injury was January 9, 2012) Because CNA recognized their failures to treat in the first 2.5 years and they thought 16 days of speech, occupational and physical therapy would suffice? I remember how Stewart delayed further and tried to kill it…. but alas, thanks his to ego and pen, at LEAST I GOT those 16days plus 8 more…. that could have been more helpful in the first year, but were confirmation to me of how impaired I really am. You’re luck I found COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM…. It’s the best help available for brain injuries, particularly when denied medical care for over 3 years, as is the practice of CNA. Remember remember, Daniel Elliott terminated all benefits in April 2012, upon learning of the seriousness of my brain injuries. In November 2012, Ms. Kim Mall, Esq. of Grancell attempted to coerce, with my counsel #2, a premature settlement in the ol’ industry fee of $100,000 — AFTER HAVING FAILED TO AUTHORIZE ALL MEDICAL RECOMMENDATIONS AND TREATMENTS THAT FIRST YEAR.

Most lawyers I have interviewed tell me that the attorneys prior did not do their jobs and consequently ‘there’s no money in the case’ so good luck. That incompetence is rewarded in the legal field, at the expense of injured workers is nearly as heinous as the harm such incompetence causes. Others have told me point blank there’s entirely too much fraud involved to take it on. That leaves me, brain impaired and all, to fight organized crime alone. Well, what I lost in marbles I tend to make up in intuition, and ONE PERSON AND GOD CONSTITUTES AN ARMY, SO IF GOD IS FOR ME, NOT EVEN PSYCHOPATHS DARE BE AGAINST.

#InjuredWorkersUniting #SilentNoMore

Thank you for your email of yesterday. Today I received mail also from Dr. Mekijan. There is insufficient time for me to respond fully due to the lateness of receipt of materials and due to cognitive impairments and ADA requirements for additional time to review what you and the doctor have sent, and further time to compile as concise a response as possible.

I am not available to meet with Dr. Mekjian on July 1, 2015, nor do I know what the doctor’s credentials are. The ENT doctor does not meet Labor Code requirements as he does not specialize in auditory processing issues, nor does he treat same. I OBJECT.

Please let Dr. Mekjian know that the appointment will have to be postponed until the issues regarding medical records are sorted out, including corrections of what appear to be continuous false statements with intent to deny medical care and to doctor shop, omission of medical records, as is the pattern and practice of Grancell in this case.

I have only just glanced at the proposed faulty medical index, I have not received hard copies of the medical records (Grancell has a pattern and practice of omitting complete and partial records, so as Stewart knows, I requested hard copies as well). The cover letter is fraught with what appears to be continues with false and misleading statements that may be subject to indictment for felony fraud.

We will have to get in front of the Judge on this, as well as the appointment with the ENT doctor, who does not treat auditory processing impairments as a part of his practice, nor is he qualified to. As I was denied the right to ADA accommmodations and the right to be heard by the Judge when this chicanery began, let us know straighten it out.

It is further impossible and potentially dangerous for me to attempt to jump through the circus hoops the Defense is now proposing. I cannot drive hundreds of miles in one week, with unknown places to sleep to accommodate further Grancell chicanery. It is a dangerous request and cognitively too demanding. That will be the second week of return to Coastline, which is disorienting and cognitively demanding enough, and you don’t pay for any of it, so you sure as heck are not going to cost me the bit of recovery that I am paying for myself.

Asking me to drive from Yucca Valley to Newport Beach, to Palm Springs, back to Newport Beach, then to Murietta then back home to YUCCA VALLEY, not knowing where to sleep in Palm Springs or Murietta, DURING THE 4TH OF JULY HOLIDAY WEEK IS UNACCEPTABLE and I will not subject myself to such dangers. That’s as ridiculous as the first neurologist who wanted me to drive 100 miles each way, SLEEP DEPRIVED, IN THE 2ND MONTH POST BRAIN INJURY. Misogynistic on top of everything else?

I am happy to meet in an expedited hearing July 9, 16, 23 with proper ADA accommodations for impairments caused by traumatic brain injury, essentially untreated since date of injury, having caused permanent and chronic disability, per SSA also, and multiple medical experts, and finders of facts will find.

As Fred Sachs has been advised, the local chiropractor, authorized by Fred in December who has not been paid yet, indicated a willingness to be designated as my primary treating doctor. He has extensive experience treating high profile athletes with brain injuries, getting them back in the game as soon as possible. His office is approximately 15minutes from my home and he provides treatment. His office will also accept Medicare Care, that apparently comes with the Social Security Award of Permanent Disability reached in April 2015. Judge to Judge, WCAB Judge may find SSA Judge findings of interest, particularly in reference to the 2013 AME/AME reports. The SSA neurosurgeon disagrees with the Maximus alleged and unnamed ‘neuro-surgeon’…. These all further matters for further investigations by the proper authorities.

As is quite well known by all stakeholders, I am attending the Coastline Community College Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach California. We have had all of June, during summer break, to have organized evaluations, if necessary. As all parties know, I am available Friday or Thursday for further evaluations and Court sessions. To request that I miss time at Coastline means missing on very valuable compensatory strategies that are necessary BECAUSE CNA refused to provide medical care for this injury.

This misleading statements in Stewart’s current letter suggest that CNA provided medical care. Finders of facts will determine that the injured worker provided the bulk of specialty treatment that was requested and repeatedly denied by CNA. At first glance, the Medical Index is still extremely flawed and I will ask the Judge for more time, due to my cogitive impairments, to review what you have sent, what the Doctor sent, the appeal to Maximus based on apparent exparte directions to commit fraud, in a similar pattern as Doctors Zardouz, O’Brien and Kent were subjected to by false cover letters from Defense, and egregious omission of medical records with apparent fraudulent intent to continue to deny medical.

If the cover letter Defense proposes to be sent to Dr. Thomas Schweller, scheduled for July 2, 2015 in Murietta is as egregiously incorrect and full of unfounded medical opinions and false allegations, I will not attend.

It is my hope and prayer to have a working meeting with the FBI regarding the conduct of Grancell Stander Reubens and their small time of doctors who write false reports with intent and success in denying medical care…. and it is my hope to have such meeting prior to appearing in WCAB Court. As I told the Judge last year, I would NOT return to that Court until I found an agency willing to deal with the Fraud. It has been brought to my attention that the FBI is just such an agency.

The Weinmann Report - politicsofhealthcare.com

So, let’s postpone the neuro-psych report and ensure the Judge who allegedly authorized it without my being heard knows about all the previous psychological evaluations, their findings, their recommendations for treatments, denials of the requested treatments repeatedly since January 2012, and let us be sure the Judge sees the false statements written by the three industry leased doctors…. O’BRIEN, ZARDOUZ AND KENT…. and let’s also be sure the Judge is aware of the extortion and other threats made on doctors who have treated me.

NEUROPSYCHOLOGY MEDICAL-LEGAL EVALUATIONS (Neuropsyche QMEs): Does someone want to sabotage neuropsychological evaluations?

Is THAT form letter from CNA, or is this an industry standard?
Is THAT form letter from CNA, or is this an industry standard?

 

Then, we’ll talk about scheduling more evaluations. Till then, ask Stewart to clean up the cover letter to the doctors, let’s hope Fred doesn’t write false reports, and cleanup the medical index. (I will respond to your attachments by emailnot later than June 21st, 2015, clearly defining all of my objections. As the Information and Assistance Officer advised me when I first objected to the Zardouz/O’Brien false medical reports, all I have to do is say “I OBJECT”…. A LOT OF GOOD THAT DID, HUH? FBI….their job is to fight fraud. Y’all can deal with them.

Am I clear enough? I’m too tired to try a 5th time. Bottom line, I refuse to participate in your collective acts of felony fraud, and I refuse to allow you to cause me further harm by preventing me from maximizing the help I am getting at Coastline Community College ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM…. nationally known as the best place in the nation for compensatory strategies required to return to life after brain injury. Coastline has an extremely challenging admissions program…..does Stewart really continue to support the fraudulent reports of Maximus, Zardouz, Kent, and O’Brien, despite substantial medical evidence by over 35 other doctors indicating brain injury with professional recommendations for treatment that could have helped me, but instead, your continous failures to provide care, and continued doctor shopping and fraudulent reports just cause more harm, contributing to my permanent disabilities.

Thank you.

    Hi Bob, as a work comp & brain injury survivor since 1/9/12, I have to let you know that you’re starting with a false premise, which blows your whole theory: Untrue: “Rarely does anyone ask about getting the right medical care or what they can do to insure they are fully restored.”

    .

    Corrrect that assumption and your speech will probably be stellar. If you don’t, unfortunately, it will make you sound like… You believe the industry lethal-to-injured workers propaganda.

    .

    I am in California. Do you happen to know if the Maximus crowd is also exempt from prosecution of felony fraud, with clear intent to deny medically necessary treatments? Apparently QME and AME doctors and defense teams are, so it stands to reason that the crookedness keeps on going. Let us know, we’re watching. Thank you. Safe travels. Dodge the Rads. show less

  2. Linda Ayres

    Ps. An alternative would be to remind injured workers to expect nothing upon reporting a work injury as medical treatment is not a component of the grand bargain. Full reliance on faith trust and pixie dust is encouraged as an alternative to civil and human rights compliance, which do not exist for the injured American worker, perhaps a violation of constitutional law… but a standard pattern of practice anyway. Remind them that the defense counsels seem to be the #NouveauSonderkommando of the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES Work Comp industries.

    .

    Encourage all injured workers to be very careful and get their affairs in order… Too often even a simple workplace injury becomes a permanent disability after tens of thousands of dollars change hands for fraudulent evaluations. Yep… Faith trust and pixie dust… and a fast Internet connection till last gasps. xoxo show less

Linda, for over 15 years I’ve run one of the largest online discussion forums for workers’ comp – and it is owned by injured workers. Many, many, many times I have watched a newly injured worker come to the forum, describe their situation, and then ask a variant of the same question, “How much will I make?” I dont EVER recall a health/recovery oriented question from one of these posters. We have to change that. As I think you might agree, injured workers who take ownership in their recovery probably have a better chance at survival than those who “trust the process”. I am, through a mutual friend, familiar with your particular situation. I sympathize with you and what you’ve been through. However, I will say that there are over 13,000 new injuries every day in this nation, and the majority do not experience what you did. That statement is not intended to defend the cases that are poorly managed, improperly denied or fraudulently handled; it is merely to caution against painting with such a broad brush that credibility might be questioned.  show less

     “… it is merely to caution against painting with such a broad brush that credibility might be questioned…”  Bob …… Oh Bob!  Read on….

    Linda Ayres

    Thanks Bob….I am not familiar with your online forum of injured workers. I would like to know more please, and I will gladly share the link on my networks.

    😊 I am very familiar with NAIDW.org —the National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers, including many Veterans and law enforcement injured workers and the theme and plight there is much the same as mine, ‘OMG. I am injured! How on earth will I survive these monsters without medical care or benefits, and no way to return to work?!’

    😯 It was in those forums that I learned that I do not have the right to be silent because what is happening to me is happening to millions of Americans, in every State. The SS TYPE OF ACTIVITIES with unnamed doctors denying basic medical care, botched surgeries, dope dealing thugs and secret reports to protect purveyors of fraud to circumvent use of 5th Amendment by perps is escalating

    😢 Please remember also that in California Romano trust versus Sedgwick was essentially permission by the state to the insurance industries to continue to maim and kill without consequence, a hotshot attorney explained that to me, much to my further horror. He said today the max penalty for killing an injured workers $100,000… Cheaper than medical care. The look on my face changed the look on his face and I think he is kind of sorry he said that to me, not from empathy, but fear that I would quote him with his name

    😬 It was participating in those NAIDW forums where I met brave Americans who have fought the corruption and SS type practices of the industry for years and years and years. Many of the NAIDW forums have BRAVE Veterans and law-enforcement personnel. They suggested we need to start naming names of doctors and lawyers and other bad guys… That suggestion set me free.

    😇 I have only been in this WaronWorkers for a little over three years… There is no money in it, there is no healthcare in it, there is only torture, bullying, intimidation, corruption and impoverishment.

    😳 I might suggest that if your forums lean toward posters seeking profit rather than medical care, you may have been infiltrated by industry impostors. I have been attacked by a few fake injured workers myself, loudly and publicly. 😡 So please Bob, if you will, give me the link to your forum, and share an older or a new blog about it and let’s do a reality check. I will put my comments in a blog too —let’s take the credibility check to the streets… The virtual streets.

    🌍🌎🌏 Since you know people who know me, then you may also know that a swath of superlawyers have advised me that my case is not unusual at all. The only unusual part of it is I will not let them kill me quietly, while they all run to the bank, profiting on my devastation. If I had had medical care in the first year, some say I may have been able to return to work then. (Defense has even threatened self procured care providers.) I keep trying to RTE, but my employer refuses to engage in interactive process, and no legitimate Doctor will release me… Yet. Social security evaluator doesn’t think I will ever work again. For that I can thank the work comp criminals and by complicit employer.

    ⚡️ With Industry leased/owned doctors paid thousands of dollars for crooked fraudulent reports, when attorneys churn the files for more than three years, and now Maximus is in the con game, with others, It’s not just my bad luck.

    😔 Please share your Forum link and let’s crank this conversation up a few notches, shall we? After all…. WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW, aren’t we?

    Hey Bob, I found your injured worker forum hiding in plain site on your website! Nice layout. Ahem, Bob, when’s the last time you looked at the site?    Did you see “what do you think please tell me”

    Right now there is an exchange going on with an injured worker who fell off a roof, a swamp cooler landed on top of him, sounds like he even has a brain injury and he is getting the EXCLUSIVE REMEDY RUNAROUND by Arizona WorkComp. http://www.workerscompensation.com/forums/general/showthread.php?tid=15703

    The site adminstrator suggests DA can help since IW has been unsuccessful in finding competent legal help. Maybe in an ‘open carry’ state like Arizona, the District Attorney’s offices are more sensitive to complaints by injured workers, in California, not so much.

    My complaints are registered locally, Sacramento and Washington DC; most all are responded to with a polite, ‘not our job, try this department or that department’…. As David DePaolo mentioned in a recent blog, perhaps Loretta Lynch may help.

    OK, let’s do a national credibility check and reconvene by July 4, 2015? I’ll see if we can incite Michael Grabell and Howard Berkes and their #IRE15 pals to jump on board…you’ll invite our mutual friends? #IWcrediblity

    WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST TO THE INJURED WORKER IS TO WATCH THIS VIDEO:

    DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATHS   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd6P1Ue2aGg  

    1. Watch the Video, more than once, to see the tactics of the formidable enemies injured workers face.
    2. If you have not filed for Social Security Disability, do it now, go to the office and let them help you.
    3. Set up a GO FUND ME ACCOUNT and also join the Forums at NAIDW.ORG  —- NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF INJURED AND DISABLED WORKERS  – “NO WORKER LEFT BEHIND”
    4. Go to your local Legal Aid office….. they usually have very smart and compassionate para-legals who can help.
    5. If you are on FB,  see the group, The TBI Tribe, and see how people who fall off roofs or just fall down can get brain injuries, and insurance companies realllly don’t like to pay for any medical care for brain injury survivors.  Estimated life-time medical, for a middle-aged worker is approximately $3.5 million—-it costs the insurance companies way less money if they drive you mad or kill you from the stress, chicanery, intimiation or lack of care.
    6. Keep in front of your local politicians — Assembly Representative and State Senator, and local DA, register your complaints but expect nothing from them.  I had one arrogant doctor give me the direct number to the DA in his district, and dared me to call, then he said, if I had complaints of human rights violations, TAKE IT TO THE HAGUE.   Some of us are working on just that thing… we have no idea how to hold these monsters accountable for their crimes against the American Working Class but if there is a way, we will find it, all together.  WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.
    7. FollowWorkComp Industry blogs (see lists in my blogs) to see how they all make money off of injured workers, and say people like you and I are exceptions to theGrandWorkCompFraud, not the patterns of practice.   One Investigative Journalists, with whom I shared many pages of medical evidence, basically said I had bad luck and best I could hope for was SSI and an early death.  You might image my thoughts that continue to this day about him and his.  That said, I’m grateful for what he taught me about his ilk.  Merciless monsters without capacity for compassion or guts to take right action, even when it means writing a simply truthful story.
      1. Share YOUR Story at ProPublica and Keep on Sharing Everywhere; WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW
    8. Follow blogs and tweets and linked in and facebook posts of other injured workers, and keep telling your friends and neighbors your stories.  NEVER GIVE UP.  WE ARE NOT ALONE.  WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW    Keep me posted on your progress:  WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

Webinar Ninja  Draft one  SURVIVING WORK COMP

Thanks Bob. I’m in the trenches, fighting for my life. I’m not alone. I’ve been sitting in WorkComp Clinics–medical and legal — and I listen to doctors and lawyers tell me to keep screaming, and others tell me they no longer treat within the WorkComp system because of the corruption and failures to pay the doctors, except the ones leased/owned by the industry, who get thousands for their fraudulent reports, and Maximus just provided evidence suggesting they are on THAT Gravy Train, right with the CorVels and others…

We’ll never agree to a watered down number of merely thousands of American citizens being harmed by this industry…That sounds too much like the pro-nuker propaganda that triple nuclear meltdowns or nuclear reactors that leak all of the time pose ‘no immediate danger to the unsuspecting public’….

WorkComp atrocities are a national problem, and the industry could not make billions by just disabling and killing just a few of us…. I worked more than 40 years, supporting some very powerful Captains of Industry, so business is not a new concept to me. I did not encounter work comp for all but the last 3.5 years, and they are destroyers, like the “locusts” … of biblical times. Today we call them psychopaths.

CEO Thomas Motamed makes $10.7 million earned income by harming people like me and others like me. The corruption is to the core, and yes, millions and millions are being injured. The counters must count injured workers converted to permanent disability the same way they cook the books on paying and not paying disability benefits and shifting cost burdens, like common streets thugs.

Here’s some info I just found on NAIDW.org site… and yes, professionals would be well advised to view that site as well…. those stats are old, and probably much higher today.

Workplace Injury & Death Statistics:
The raw statistics are always startling, In 2009, according to preliminary data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4,340 workers were killed on the job—an average of 12 workers every day—and an estimated 50,000 died from occupational diseases.

More than 4.1 million work-related injuries and illnesses were reported, but this number understates the problem. The true toll of job injuries is two to three times greater—about 8 million to 12 million job injuries and illnesses each year.

And the cost in dollars alone?

The cost of job injuries and illnesses is enormous—estimated at $159 billion to $318 billion a year for direct and indirect costs of disabling injuries.

The conference of INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS AND EDITORS  – IRE–  just finished up in Philadelphia…. some of those journalists may be fired up to look into what THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS’ COMP and OSHA scratched the surface on….. I hope they do. I hope to provide them some encouragement… and we can get some tweeting going on with a hash tag #IWcredibility or…. for the less polite, #WCnazis can be the tag.

I gotta run. I have to get some things together and find my way to the office of the Federal Bureau of Investigations…….the District Attorney’s have been unresponsive. I’ve have been ‘thrown under the bus’ by all stakeholders; I’m grabbing ankles and taking them with me. The Maximus false report I just received over the weekend looks like the start of a set up to suggest my injury didn’t even happen at work at all….That fits the DIR criteria of FRAUD WITH INTENT TO DENY MEDICAL CARE…. I know, I know, fraud is not prosecuted in WorkComp, except for the token back-pain worker caught bowling or on a game show, from year to year. Bill Casey had words for that sort of propganda.

Have a good trip…..let’s reconvene and compare notes on or before July 4,2015…. and see if we can come up with better stats on just how many Americans your industry harms, and how many it kills, with how much plausible deniability.

I do like you, and I think you bring a thoughtful perspective to a vile industry. Go get ’em in Minneapolis, and Blog on! Meanwhile, I’ll break out my magic wand and try a little more “Faith Trust and Pixie Dust”…. and let you know how THAT works out… xoxoox

Ask About #WorkComp #Timeshares and The Hague

Hey Fred… One of the work comp doctors suggested that if I have human rights violation complaints that I take it to The Hague.

I have no idea how to do that, but if we can find a way ….are you in, and do you think we can find a bunch of Canadians to join a bunch of Americans to expose fascist criminals?

Doctor’s Trials for the 21st Century #NouveauSonderkommando #NouveauNazis. I hear we may need citizens tribunals as a first step and I think Americans would have to help the Canadians and the Canadians might have to help the Brits the Brits might have to help the Aussies who might in turn have to help the Americans…..

I will be publishing a list of all the doctors that I have been exposed to, all who have profited by reports they have generated… Reports that have been good bad ugly truthful and fraudulent… I won’t separate them out yet… But if they touched my case they need to be named. The innocent will rise to the top and the proper authorities can sort them out.

I am only three and a half years into this fight for my life, along with the lives of others injured workers around the world… maimed harmed tortured and prematurely killed by these creatures.

In your experience do you know of any other workers who have attempted citizens tribunals, in what countries, and with what success if any? WORKcompLINDA@GMAIL.COM

I don’t believe there are any attorneys or agencies in the United States of America who will help us… They would have done so by now.

What do you think?

NOTE THIS:

Travel and Tourism bigger employer than automotive, mining and financial services combined

The report shows that Travel & Tourism comes third out of the eight researched sectors, after retail and agriculture. The industry supported 277 million jobs in 2014, which is 9.4% of world employment.

With 105 million people directly employed in 2014, the industry globally employs:

  • 7 times more than automotive manufacturing (14 million)
  • 5 times more than chemicals manufacturing (20 million)
  • 4 times more than banking (27 million)
  • 4 times more than mining (27 million)
  • 2 times more than financial services (59 million)

According to the report, Travel & Tourism is the second-fastest growing sector globally. Forecast to grow at 3.9% per annum over the next ten years, this industry’s growth will outpace the global economy, which is estimated to increase by 2.9% per annum over the next decade.

The research shows that Travel & Tourism, generating US$ 7.6 trillion in contribution to GDP in 2014, is the fourth largest sector after mining, financial services and retail respectively.  

[Emphasis added by blogger to highlight that this industry fails to provide medically necessary treatments to injured workers and is complicit in bullying and terrorism of injured workers by refusal to manage their agents of workers compensation insurance, giving the appearance of collusion with intent to maim and cause permanente disablities to workers over the age of 35, injured on the job.  Note that RCI is one of the very many Wyndham Worldwide companies; see also LINDA AYRES VS.

From Bob’s Cluttered Desk….    Is Workers’ Comp Getting Mixed Signals from the Feds?

“….It might be paranoia, but the suspiciously coincidental release of the highly critical ProPublica/NPR report and the equally scathing OSHA report on workers’ compensation raised many eyebrows in the industry. One only need review the titles of these two reports to get the gist of their content. The ProPublica report, entitled “The Demolition of Workers’ Comp”, was the first in a series of articles looking at many “worst case” scenarios within the comp system. The OSHA report title, “Adding Inequality to Injury: The Costs Of Failing To Protect Workers On The Job”, pretty much says it all regarding the intent and outcome of the report. This balanced work, produced with our tax dollars, and using wholly scientific phrases such as “Statistics are People with the Tears Washed Off”, eviscerated employers and workers’ comp, alleging that we essentially renege on up to 80% of injury costs across the nation….”   READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE HERE:

 
INJURED WORKER’S COMMENTS ON BOB’S BLOG:
Wouldn’t it be great if the feds… Including but not limited to the Department of Justice and the FBI would commence investigations into the criminal corruption that permeates the work comp industries, maiming and further injuring the workforce and shareholders, for the profits of the few, causing permanent disabilities, then shifting the costs to the Federal agencies?
 .
Or, as a WC Doctor suggested to an injured worker, ‘If you have Human Rights Violations Complaints, take it to The Hague’ — caching!  $7k for a false report to deny medical care.  Ditto for two peers with QME designations.
 .
Because of the work comp system, and SS type policing policies and how it overlooks crimes against injured workers nationally, I am now permanently disabled, also with thanks to their  failures to treat combined with bullying and terrorism for more than three years.
 .
Super Lawyers have assured me that my case is very common. Demolition of work comp is happening, and the investigators at ProPublica and OSHA have just scratched the surface of the corruption. They need to dig deeper, and the feds need to help. Yes, trials for the #NouveauSonderkommando are over due, imho.

Hi Pamela at The Advocator  (and other interested parties and Stakeholders):

Thank you for your constant kindness and helpfulness.  Attached are the requested EDD pieces regarding disability payments shifted from the insurance carrier, CNA, in their willful and callous disregard of California Labor Codes in 2012 and questionable accounting practices since then.

(In this ongoing fight for my life, the Public Version of this missive is located at https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts)
 

The good news is that Tina Jordan, HR Regional Director at Wyndham Worldwide in San Diego graciously and kindly authorized the discount hotel vouchers so that I will be able to continue the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program for the Summer Session, which begins June 20th and she kindly said more are needed, to let her know.

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!”

There is a company that, as part of their cost-savings recommendations, recommends that Employers send ‘get well cards’ to their injured workers immediately with regular communication toward return to work.  (My address is below if any stakeholders want to begin to implement such a program and see where it takes things.) http://wcmanual.com/get-well-cards-package-of-10/  More tips below.

As most of you know, Wyndham HR was advised, apparently by defense, that they could not even speak to me, and when in December 2014 I attended a public open house – no resume required – come meet the managers and find out about Wyndham Worldwide – I was the only attendee from the public, but management made me sit in the empty room for about 45 minutes then politely told me they could not talk to me, couldn’t help me in any way, and that I would have to leave.  I was able to see a few former co-workers as they left the office, and that was fun and heart warming.  I told one former manager that I’m not quite right in the head yet and he, in kind and sales professional form say, ‘Don’t you worry about that, when you come back we’ll help you get your mojo back…’ or words to that effect, being encouraging and welcoming.

Coastline ABI Program is helping me discover compensatory skills to ‘do life’ again, and I am very grateful.  It was the kindest letter I have received from Wyndham since the injury, and I hope to hear back on extension of leave accommodation requested, and that we will commence the interactive process required by FEHA, so that I can get back to work when medically released.

The doctors are not hopeful of my return to work this year, but I am.  A second year at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program has been suggested by multiple people, and I do not like the label of being “100% disabled”…..my accountant used the term on my taxes as she said, “Linda, it’s been over 3 years.  Do you really think you will ever be able to return to work?”  NOBODY LIKES TERM DISABLED, AND I AM DISABLED BECAUSE OF CNA’S REFUSAL TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE REASONABLE AND NECESSARY MEDICAL CARE IN 2012.  Monsters, but friends tell me, “Those lawyers are just doing their jobs” and I always say, “So did the Sonderkommando!  Just following orders is an insufficient defense!”

Here is the EDD  6/1/ 15 “Explanation of Benefit Payment Record” from 2012 through 2014. [available to the public upon request at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com]  Also attached are CNA print outs.  [Available to the public upon request at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com]  My math skills have been reduced dramatically since the injury, and I can’t make senses of any of this.  I just know that CNA has gotten away with some pretty coarse ‘cooking of books’ and violations of labor codes in initial refusals to pay TTD, refusals to provide medical care, and continuous outrageous refusals to reimburse simply miles to their doctors, and medically necessary treatments that were recommended but denied by non-doctors—being lawyers and adjusters without medical expertise, further evidenced below.

I am awaiting response from appeal of February/March 2015 from another industry leased/owned company called MAXIMUS.  Defense sent them exparte records with probable intent to continue to deny medical care, and we’ll see if Maximus deals with medical realities or just follows orders of their benefactors. CorVel certainly appears to follow implied directions of the defense counsel, even when an idiot would questions some of the directions.  A YELP review of some of their doctors, including their acupuncture and dope dealing neurologists who perform ‘independent medical reviews’ on behalf of CorVel  would make you laugh, to lighten the intensity of the allegations herewith.  FOLLOW THE MONEY, ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY.

Will you let me know the findings of your accounting people also?  I am still working on organizing medical expenses to submit that may serve as further offsets.  I have spent more than $35,000 out of pocket to stay alive, despite the interference of CNA and their legal counsel in their continuous pattern of malicious, callous and willful harm, and ‘deny medical care by any means necessary’ approach to breaches of fiduciary responsibilities.

Now they want me to see an Ear Nose and Throat doctor for my brain injury, a doctor’s office that admittedly has no knowledge of brain injury.  As loss of hearing was mentioned in a very comprehensive auditory processing evaluation performed at the SCRIPPS Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program last summer (2014) now the Defense attorney wants an ENT to dispute it so they can continue to  refuse to provide auditory devices and auditory therapy.

That ENT request is the same nonsense as their leased/owned neurologists who have no clue that vision processing issues are a consequence of brain injury, and ‘corrected vision’ with prism lenses (that CNA also refused to pay for, or even authorize evaluations since 2012. The Judge refused my ADA requests to be seen and heard regarding this matter, as is another pattern and practice of WCAB Court I have experienced repeatedly since 2012.

I fullly expect Grancell to demand a podiatrist QME for my right ankle any day now.

I don’t know where the Workcompsters find their doctors and other participants, but it was heart warming to read about the recent bust of that dirty doctor ring in New Jersey last week.  I hope the FBI commences investigations into WorkComp, in California, with my case.

I don’t know how these records show the approximately $49K payout by EDD and the approximately $31K payback by CNA, with a bonus of approximately $18K by negotiated discount to CNA, apparently from Taxpayer coffers?

By copy, I am letting the CNA Adjuster know the actuals paid by EDD and asking if CNA wants to adjust their allegations that they “paid 104 weeks”…. the schedules of payments certainly dispute that, don’t they?  They may also want to revisit their legal responsibilities to pay on-going estimated permanent disability payments commencing 14 days after last TTD payment….which appears to be … May 2014 by EDD?

#1  Employers that send GET WELL CARDS to injured workers and maintain communications achieve better return work results and over all outcomes.  See more here:  http://wcmanual.com/get-well-cards-package-of-10/

#2  Google Manage My Fatigue for a new app released by one of the instructors at Coastline Community College, with an aim to assist the Department of Defense in a simple app (utilizing more than 25 years research of helping Acquired Brain Injury Survivors deal with cognitive fatigue and reintegrate into mainstream life post TBI, and post concussion and post PTSD.   Michelle Ranae Wild can also be found on LinkedIn.

#3  “Your Radiation This Week” ongoing weekly series contains information that impacts not only the hospitality and travel industries, but also the risk management arms of the insurance industries.  http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/bobnichols/

Bob Nichols, Writer and Contributor at VETERANS TODAY  has written extensively on nuclear matters, pre-and-post Fukushima.  The #Wigner Effect may end up being one of the very visible consequences with the least plausible deniability in the coming days/years, as more planes crash and burn. Aviation catastrophe attorneys may soon be finding an uptick in their businesses.  Even drive-to-destinations are impacted, as you will see that Bakersfield, California is the Champion of CPMs in the USA …. (highest radiation readings as of last week)…. Remember remember to also ASK ABOUT FUKUSHIMA NOW, and don’t believe the pro-nuker propaganda that ‘there is no immediate danger.’

START WITH THE SCIENCE.  DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.  SEE THE SOURCES IN EACH OF THE ARTICLES; DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS    http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/bobnichols/

#4  ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMPENSATION GRAVY TRAINS  https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts/ is an amateur effort to increased awareness of Brain Injury and the horrors of the common practices of WorkComp insurance carriers such as CNA, which cost shareholders money, cost corporations loss of producing employees, and cost injured workers their hopes, homes, dreams and life….all for the mega profits of the few who are ‘just following orders’….

#InjuredWorkersUniting  #SilentNoMore

#5 Huff-Post has a series of contributors writing about Brain Injuries, that the adjusters and doctors might be wise to review. https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=huff+post+brain+injury On the whole, it does seem that Brain Injury Survivors have much more information about symptoms, consequences and treatments that the vast majority of the AMA and ABA crowds..and LinkedIn has a wealth of resources, as does Facebook.  THINK THINK THINK MOFOS thanks

#CountOnMe is a favorite Wyndham Slogan, so to each and all of you, i remind you, I AM INJURED, NOT STUPID; #CountOnMe…. to expose these atrocities and either help you correct them and/or help the FBI investigate and indict with probable cause and plenty of evidence.  For any of you who may be people of faith, you also know that ‘One person and God constitutes an Army….’
