This news seems to be a purely malicious and well planned act of really bad practice by all complicit parties? #WorkCompStinks! Secret Tribunals, Fatalities and extreme abuse of the WorkingClass for the profits of the few. “WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW. EXPECT US. JOIN US.” READ AND SHARE THIS BLOG. START YOUR OWN.
This is actually heinous news–utterly odious and wicked! The money trail might suspiciously lead from NFL related enterprises?….to …. where? Nawwww, that couldn’t happen, could it?
Can the President please send in the National Guard to protect California Workers now, or must more be tortured, maimed, and have their lives destroyed and shortened by WorkCompsters for the profits of the few?
Why does California demand that Orthopedic Surgeons be the primary treating doctors for BRAIN INJURED WORKERS? Nobody in Sacramento has ever head of ACOEM and MTUS and NIH for guidelines on treatment? Doesn’t California WorkComp have any PHYSIATRISTS either to refer brain injured workers to?
The WCAB and defense teams seem to act like that’s a made up word when such is requested as a PTP! WorkComp neurologists are essentially clueless about brains, not even knowing that vision and hearing are functions of the brain! D’oh! 7th Grade Kids seem to know more about brains than California QME/QME “Neurologists” and CorVel/Maximus “doctors.”
Looks like the GOV may have had a lapse of memory on his Oath of Office in his attempts at chivalry and Ms Baker? “Our Goal Is Back To Work”??
REALLY? COMPLETE SYSTEM FAIL! EXPENSIVE AND COMPLETE SYSTEM FAIL!
PS: “Mischief” is not the same as COLLUSION AND CORRUPTION, JUST SO WE ARE CLEAR!
(We wonder who pays for the Private–no journàlists allowed — DIR holiday party THIS YEAR? Last year, Youtube has some pretty …interesting….footage of ‘this is a private party’)
No Reporters Allowed By CA DIR Director Baker At “Private Event” On Cal-Osha & Workers Comp
I don’t think the Gov’s “Oath of Office” promotes Chivalry to Ms. Baker, DIR, WCAB, Insurance Industries before the Common Good, does it? I could be wrong…. WorkComp does seems to have it’s own rules, courts and subsidies, huh, operating outside the Constitution of The United States of America on multiple issues, doesn’t it? Outside the California Constitution on multiple issues, as well.
Is there a Civil Rights lawyer in the house? Has the BIA – Brain Injury Association of America been consulted? Have any Injured Workers been consulted? Was CAAA consulted? How about the leading mouth-pieces for the industry?
Does ProPublica know about this? Sounds like a PS to THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION!
We, the People, want the names, ranks and salaries of the parties to this action, please and thank you.
Let’s watch the unfolding drama. Investigations and Indictments seem to be in order. Will DOJ and FBI investigate these suspicious acts? We can continue to wait and wait and wait and hope.
California needs Federal Overseers of WorkComp practices to protect the Working Class, and we need it NOW!
I am not too alarmed, however. WorkComp doesn’t seem to have any neuropsychologists to refer Injured Worker’s to anyway, for at least the past ten years, based on input from Injured Workers in Southern California.
Orthopedic Surgeons seem to be the norm to be designated as treating doctors, and they joyfully report they have no knowledge of brain injuries.
(This seems to be a very weak link in their practices, since accidents with broken bones often can include head injuries…. their Society might take a closer look, or, like NFL, involve the cardiologists? D’oh! )
CAAA practices don’t seem to be much better or stronger when it comes to brain injuries; some of their members do as much harm as those paid to harm injured workers, through willful ignorance or ‘not enough money in it’ syndromes)
Last year, one case, defense tried to send the TBI survivor to a neuropsychologist for yet another evaluation–one who admitted hadn’t treated brain injury patients for over seven years… Just apparently real busy and profitable doing evaluations for Work Compsters. [
The three neuropsychologists who evaluated this injured worker (two in 2012, one in 2014) were all approved/authorized outside of the alleged MPN.
The adjuster apparently had no clue as to what type of doctor to send the Injured Worker to, and the EAP program (that IW was originally referred to a Clinical Psychologist) was a bit of good luck, as that CP doctor had tremendous brain injury knowledge, as his own son was recovering from a devastating brain injury, with the help of an interdisciplinary team of doctors and specialists.
That clinical psychologist helped walked the rookie adjuster through the process, clearly describing the dangers and the needs for immediate and appropriate medical care. The Injured Worker had to pay for the MRI’s recommended in both 2012 and again in 2014.
WorkComp peeps seem to dispute the location of the brain, and attempt to pretend it is not a body part.
WorkComp seems to approve primarily Orthopedic Surgeons and Chiropractors for brain injury, with a little PT and 40 or so face to face evaluations, and countless re-evalulations by CorVel doctors—who also seem to know little to nothing about brains.
It took nearly 3 years for the mentioned Injured Worker to get to a speech therapist and occupational therapist (3-6 months treatment were required, 16 days were authorized, then extended another 8).
One of the WorkComp leased/owned neurologists suggested that since care had been denied for two years (at that time) and since the injured worker was female and over the age of 35, no treatment was deemed necessary, contrary to all medical evidence.
The primary treating doctor since Feb 2013 has been an orthopedic surgeon, and the bulk of the denying Corvell doctors have been orthopedic surgeons. WorkComp neurologists and CorvVel and Maximus doctors seem to be simply clueless about head injuries…..or are they paid to just look the other way and write false reports to ensure denial of medical care.
Responses from DIR over the course will be located and forwarded to appropriate authorities. Seems this situation may call for intervention, finally, by DOJ/FBI.
What Happens When Americans Are Hurt on the Job? Help ProPublica Investigate
FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS STAY IGNORANT. This article could have the effect of being a call to all Americans to see the movie, CONCUSSION, in December, and search google for the facts they are hiding. DARPA is spending gazillions on brain research….. Doesn’t Sacramento stay in touch with the DARPA peeps either? D’oh!

“Letter from Federal Lawmakers to Labor Department on Workers’ Comp”
Oh Looook! Some Congress People Step Up and Step In…. let’s see what they have to say, and who they are! Hmmmmmmmm https://www.propublica.org/documents/item/2465674-letter-from-federal-lawmakers-to-labor-on.html
Could this be a sign of better days ahead for America’s WorkingClasses? Or at least trials and indictments and involvement of DOJ, FBI and local DAs into further investigations of WorkCompsters across the lands?
See! Even Congress sees the value of social media…! Another Bravo to the ProPublica and NPR people! Write oN! #CommitteesOfBloggers forming! xoxox A handwriting analyst would be fun to know right about NOW, huh?….. xoxoox
