What’s a “gravy train?” Ask Siri!
A young banker today asked ‘what’s a gravy train?’ giving way to discussion and points to ponder with his colleagues.
It was suggested that he immediately check with his Human Resources Department for details on the WorkComp policies and practices of his major bank. He knew well about the needs to begin retirement planning early, but admittedly never thought about a work place injury. He was encouraged to do more research, and discuss it with his friends and neighbors. A work place injury can be very career path and life-disrupting to an injured worker, and quite the gravy train for what some call “21st Century Sonderkommando” — Yes, Ask Siri!
How many people in the industry know cases that are more than 20 years old? What torture and abuses occur during such a time span?? How many dollars are laundered over the course, over how many unclean hands? Recently an industry article about California talked about Sedgwick again, caught offending again, shrugged, paid a few million and said they would monitor better (paraphrased.) Here’s the link:
Sedgwick pays $1.13 million to settle California comp violations
FOLLOW THAT MONEY TRAIL!
Another recent article talked about how Sedgwick takes the best financial care of it’s employees….. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU? Put on your cognitive thinking skills cap! YIKES!
WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHERE IS THE CAAA HOTLINE FOR OTHER SEDGWICK SIMILARLY ABUSED INJURED WORKERS TO RALLY IN CLASS ACTION? IF I GET ONE MORE CALL FROM ONE MORE INJURED WORKER OF THE SEDGWICK VARIETY CRYING ABOUT 20 OR SO YEARS OF ABUSE, BOTCHED SURGERIES, DENIED MEDICAL CARE, AND DEMANDS FOR WEANING OFF OPIATES WHILE THE CAUSES OF THE NEED FOR PAIN TREATMENT SUCH AS FOREIGN OBJECTS LEFT BEHIND IN BOTCHED SURGERIES,
WE MAY HAVE TO DEVOTE A SPECIAL SERIES TO SEDGWICK although they seem to represent the new normals, don’t they?
WE ALREADY KNOW THE NEED TO #Blog4TheCure – Romano Syndrome incited by the practices of this insurance carrier, which seems to have set the industry standard, huh?
Perhaps Darrell Brown and Kimberly George, both influencers at Sedgwick, will establish a direct HOT LINE for Injured Parties to reach out, whether or not they are represented. Perhaps they will establish a second HOT LINE for attorneys of old Sedgwick cases to reach out. Perhaps they will line up a HOT LINE for national, third-party MEDIATORS to get these cases to resolution, allowing the remaining days of injured workers to be without the terrors and pain and abuses that only workcomp can freely incite, without fear or caution, on the working classes.
Most applicant attorneys shamefully would apparently rather see an injured worker die than share case proceeds with someone who can get the job done —medical care and resolution — and imho, such parties should not profit for inability to protect their clients, and certainly should not stand in the way of resolution. My opinions on that crowd have never been …. sugar-coated. 20 years, c’mon!
Then, if PRO-ACTIVE HOTLINES happen, maybe investigative reporters can write something nice about work comp one of these days, instead of digging to find a story of someone who did something right once in workcomp. Corrective actions can then begin to embrace Social Security Disabilities and improprieties, that little cost shifting maneuver with many sticky little fingers all over it? All these things may, in the end, require hands-on Congressional interventions. What about Return to Work? What a concept, post-medical treatment?
There is lots of room for improvement and it doesn’t include ‘rising medical costs’ and from an accounting perspective, MEDICAL EVALUATIONS UPON EVALUATIONS UPON EVALUATIONS do not constitute medical care. Separate actual care from collusion to deny medical care, and the industry may find medical care costs are insanely low, to practically non-existent. Ask any injured worker, represented or not.
LET THE NATIONAL CONVERSATIONS BEGIN. ProPublica started the conversations with the series, Insult to Injury – The Demolition of Workers Compensation. Let’s keep the conversations going and ignite some new ones! YOUR LIFE COULD BE AT STAKE, TOO.
Obviously, applicant attorneys in every state are befuddled, puzzled, baffled and perplexed on how to protect injured parties. Perhaps Congress can be encouraged to encourage immediate establishment of a HOT LINE FOR AMERICA’S INJURED WORKERS SEEKING RESOLUTIONS, MEDICAL CARE, AND BASIC CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS. WE CAN HOPE. LET’S OPEN UP SOME HOT LINES, AND CONTINUE TO #Blog4TheWorkCompCure!
WHAT’S A GRAVY TRAIN?
Young, middle aged and old people are also urged by MyWorkCompCoach.com to check with their Human Resources Dept today to get the names of their WorkComp and Disability insurance carriers. Anytime you consider a new j-o-b, be sure to ask about the Workers Compensation carrier, practices and how many injured workers, statistically, ever return to work with their original employer, and at all? You might also inquire about the average duration of the company’s ‘typical’ work comp case, and if HR and management has any particular training in handling 911-emergency calls and workplace injuries. Particularly ask if they are forbidden from calling 911 or extending get well wishes! That may be telling!
Research them. Don’t wait till you’re hurt at work. At that point you have lost most all civil and human rights.
Without this info your career path can be derailed into oblivion and your life severely shortened!
Start Career, Retirement and Accidental #Work Injuries planning now! Failures can cost you your health, life savings, home, career path, and your life!
Ask any 40-somethings who have been fighting #WorkComp since theirs 20s and 30s….and can’t find competent legal representation or resolution to botched surgeries and more. Ask any 60-somethings about it!
You could be next! BE PREPARED! Ask better questions! Join the national conversation on Worker’s Comp atrocities, demolition and transformations! SURVIVE!
