’till Nuremburg…..Nuremburg was not enough. TIME FOR CHANGE.
LET’S MOVE SOME POSITIVE RUMORS ABOUT WORKERS COMPENSATION TRANSFORAMTIONS, SHALL WE?
Remember We Met at CompLaude Awards Gala 2014? Thank you for being part of my “WorkComp MailChimp Test Group” in 2015! (And/or Social Media Pals also concerned about WorkComp, Civil Rights and Human Rights around the globe!)
Will you be at the WorkComp Central CompLaude 2015 Awards and Gala today?
Circumstances prevent me from attending the WorkCompCentral 2015 CompLaude Awards and Gala this year, but I will be there in spirit, virtually, because WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.
David DePaolo said:
“It is my hope that we will, with Comp Laude, eventually help shape policy for the future that benefits all of society.”
“It’s a big mission and a big risk.”
Here’s David’s recent post, “MY DREAM” included in my current blog….
Do you remember the “Women’s Revolution” and the “Civil Rights Movements” of the 60’s and 70’s? “WE SHALL OVERCOME, SOMEDAY!” HAVE YOU EVER BEEN MORE CONCERNED ABOUT NUCLEAR DANGERS? If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention!
Did you see the Congressional Letter about Workers Compensation? It’s in this blog, thanks to the ProPublica people…. carry on and on! Do be sure your friends and colleagues have read it and that they are talking about it. It seems to be high time to RESTORE HUMAN RIGHTS AND CIVIL RIGHTS TO INJURED WORKERS NOW, wouldn’t you agree?
Did you make your 2015 Nominations? I did, and blogged about them…. did you see them? I hear that some made it to semi-finalist and finalst categories! Hooray!
CompLaude is National this year, with an international keynote speaker, so maybe next year it will be –> INTERNATIONAL, including Injured Workers from everywhere!
We know that friends in Canada, UK, Australia, Japan and beyond are having the same challenges of getting medical care and benefits for Injured Workers. The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Workers have it worst of all!
ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS blog reach to date is 27,232!
Woo hoo! People do care about WorkComp and Injured Workers! Even Politicians seem to care! FOLLOW THAT MONEY TRAIL!
2013 – 1,280 2014 – 7,951 2015 to-date 17,998
As an Injured Worker (one of last year’s 4 finalists!), I am very grateful for the energy and work David and his team and colleagues have put into the CompLaude Awards, and the open discussion about the challenges facing Americans everywhere. I am very grateful to have attended a few industry events, and thereby discover there ARE some good people in this life-destroying system.
I HAVE STUDIED “VERBAL SELF DEFENSE AGAINST CORPORATE PSYCHOPATHS” over the coming holidays, and hope to do some ‘rebranding’in the new year, if that’s what it takes!
The movie, CONCUSSION, to be released 12/25/15 may serve to shake up the WorkComp industry soon. Did you see what DIR did to make it hard for Workers with Brain Injuries to get proper evaluations and treatment? What another shame! David DePaolo blogged about it, Dr. Robert Weinmann blogged about it, and I had a few choice words on it, too!)
David DePaolo is collecting the Nice list, the teams at ProPublica are collecting the ‘naughty’ list… and I contributed to BOTH! ;p
Beacon on Disparity – DePaolo’s World – Thoughts and impressions on workers’ compensation and life
A new website is under construction that will also enhance the Resources page… particularly if you have services available to unrepresented Injured Workers, send me an email so we can tell the others.
As you may know, of the approximately “15%” of unrepresented workers, it’s a last resort, not a first, and a good many have had unsuccessful representation by 3-5 CAAA attorneys. Follow the blog, if you will.
We’re looking to find a Team of Paralegals and related services that can fill that gap and perhaps save some lives that are ‘economically irrelevant’ to the legal communities due to multiple attorneys being ‘lien holders’ for failures to perform and worse
Remember Remember…. WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW…. CompLaude 2015 Gala coming up….get YOUR nominations in by next Tuesday.
I think all providers of services should bring at least one INJURED WORKER, AS A GUEST, TO THE EVENT. MAYBE NEXT YEAR…
PS… Below is the email I sent last year….. and have been meaning to stay in touch, but my case has been…. what it is!

Great to Meet You at the WorkCompCentral #CompLaude event
One of my favorite sayings is: WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW! This is a touch base note to wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
As an #InjuredWorker, it was great to meet you at the 3rd Annual #WorkCompCentral WorkCompLaude Awards!
As 2014 wraps up, I know we are all very busy, so let’s be in touch again in the new year. We may have mutually beneficial opportunities ahead. Did you see all the tweets at #WCCgala and #complaude? What a great educational day it was!
At first glance of all the marketing materials collected, I didn’t see too many social media resources? Are you LinkedIn? Do you Tweet? Blog? Facebook? Pin? Email? Injured Workers are Uniting and it may be mutually beneficial to share about YOUR services, observations, and expertise. (I am seizing this opportunity to try MAIL CHIMP…an expert recommended it!)
As I told David DePaolo before leaving, “It was great to meet so many wonderful people and to see that not EVERYBODY in work comp wants to kill us injured workers for profits!” He smiled and had a charming reply!
As one of the CompLaude four #InjuredWorker finalists, a fresh perspective may be useful to your communities as well. Future blogs will include more information on several of the people and groups discovered at the event, along withe some “Expert Opinions” with an aim toward saving lives of injured workers while keeping things profitable for y’all.
All the best to you and yours! Let’s MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN 2015!
Remember to read and share the CONGRESSIONAL LETTER ON WORKERS COMPENSATION and send a note of thanks to the ProPublica and WorkCompCentral peeps for all they do for and with all of us! WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW….. CARRY ON….
