Sorry Injured Workers – I tried to pry open some doors to communication with the WorkCompsters…to no avail







From an Injured Worker’s Perspective – Deploy Mediation and Structured Settlement Teams to reach resolutions

Thank you for creating this group, and for being open to participation by Injured Workers who have dodged some bullets in the system, and got out alive.

I blog, and my ‘rebranding’ blog is MyWorkCompCoach.com and my ‘screaming to the high heavens’ blog is AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com/list-of-posts/

It can be used as a study piece that this community of thought leaders may find some new perspectives and identification of issues requiring solutions and resolutions.

Professional friends, upon learning of my workplace injuries, advised ‘get out of work comp by any means necessary, it will kill you!’ Later, some of the same people, and new professionals, said they had never seen anyone fight so hard for life and exit from the system. Believe it or not, a warm and somewhat fuzzy best wishes letter even arrived from the defense.

I am currently collecting stories from other Injured Workers in hopes to present issues for the “National Discussions” that appear to be in progress.

Many of us are extremely grateful for the stellar reporting of the investigative reporters that provided America with the information in The Demolition of Workers Compensation, that may serve to save more lives. Many of us hope for an encore. I personally hope that investigative reporters will be invited into this group, and encouraged to participate and demolish the existing systems, and replace them with ones that reflect values of life, liberty, and justice for all.

I seem to ‘scare’ some people with some of my out-of-the-box ideas, but over the course of my career, prior to the workplace injury, I had also supported some very powerful captains of industry. Thinking small is not second nature to me.

I will watch and read, and practice some restraint in this group, seeing it as a huge opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of not only Injured Workers, but in the lives of providers & workers on the ‘short-end-of-the-work-comp-stick.’

    Linda Ayres I welcome public or private discussions, and I can be easily reached at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

    If you will be dividing into committees, I am a natural networker. Please let me know how I may best be of some support in identifying more of the real issues, and facilitating dialogue with injured workers in America, Canada, Australia, UK and beyond.

    It could be beneficial to set up a ways and means for WorkComp workers to chat, in a non-adversarial manner, with injured workers, not unlike programs for incarcerated members of society to have pen-pals with the ‘free world.’

    We all know some of the same people, and really, WorkComp is everybody’s business.

    Thank you, Jonathan Mast! For the record, and for this group, attached is the link to your announcement of the group, and my very public request to join!

    Here is a survey that Injured Workers have been responding to via my blog: https://myworkcompcoach.com/whats-your-workcomp-story/

    Talk soon! Thank you again for this opportunity to meet and discuss.

    I may include a blog soon to invite others to join. My reach may be somewhat different than many of yours, and there may also be overlap.

    Linda Ayres Then we have the issue of lawyers and their part in denied medical care, over – evaluations, breaches of ethics and fiduciary responsiblities and other 3D practices —delay, deny, defend (or die)…

    Here’s a link to David DePaolo’s current blog, http://daviddepaolo.blogspot.com/2016/04/can-o-worms.html

    and my three cents, for what it’s worth:

    Linda Ayres Here’s someone to consider for a Resolutions Team of Thinkers at the Sedgwick Institute, wouldn’t you agree?

    I have invited Karen Stankevitz, Managing Director of Consulting and Analytics at Aptus Risk Solutions, Inc. to join the group. I hope she accepts. Karen apparently has a background and expertise in claim closure initiatives, litigation closure executives.

    Wow! Look at this from her profile:

    “…Clients who have embraced the litigation closure programs have experienced 50-60% closures on their aged litigation inventory within the first 12-14 months. Clients have reported that they have experienced actuarial relief and legal expense reductions at the end of the initiative…”Show less

WorkComp – MORE TROUBLES! National Discussion Communications Breakdown

Bye Bye!  #TTFN!

welcome to nobody cares - population 6 billion

Public and Private discussions between the #WorkComp Communities and Injured Workers are failing miserably. Let’s see what the ‘May Secret National Discussions’ produce in the area of problem identifications and proposed solutions.   

Refer to Insult to Injury:  The Demolition of Workers Compensation for already identified national problems.  See also the letter from Congress of October 2015 offering to send in law enforcement to protected injured workers and taxpayers from the problems and people already exposed.

Despite multiple blogs, LinkedIn posts, Tweets and Facebook posts sharing about  the Sedgwick Institute Linked Group by one Injured Worker, it seems they are unable or unwilling to grow the group, or that the Industry greatly fears the Sedgwick ‘giants’ and are afraid to join and speak up.  Too bad how sad, and what a surprise.  It seems to be a well funded Institute, and they seem stuck on thinking Opioid Training and Dope Distribution channels are the only WorkComp topic worthy of discussion.  Yikes, huh?

Several national discussion topics were bullet pointed and submitted for group and individual discussion….. all pooo-poooed as ‘injured worker drivel’ and ‘complaints’ without merit.  My My……… Draw your own conclusions….. see the initial post submitted to the group, and the only response was some pretty mean and shocking and disappointing email attacks, along with basic shunning.
**********************************
VIA ANOTHER THREAD… MISSED OPPORTUNITIES… GOSH DARN. What’s next, huh?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND? Good. Then remember remember that:

“An Injured worker without a blog is UNARMED AND UNPROTECTED IN THE AMERICAN WAR ON WORKERS”….#Wow!

See more at AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com & MyWorkCompCoach.com  See also the Resources and Video pages, and much much more… Yes, problem identifications and proposed solutions for consideration by critical thinkers everywhere.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

nobody cares

See what the industry ‘Best Bloggers of 2016’ have to say on the Communications Breakdown, and what PROBLEMS THEY IDENTIFY, AND WHAT SOLUTIONS THEY OFFER?

Follow these blogs…. comment freely…. Let’s hope they know that problems must identified before they can be resolved….  Anything less appears to be legal chicanery and how do they label it…. yeah, “B*LLSH*T”

welcome to nobody cares

Here, read about Nuclear War Crimes in Progress, and a call for War Crime Trials.

Your Radiation This Week No 55

You can see the entire series at BobNicholsSaidWHATaboutYourRadiationThisWeek.com so that you can be informed, not just opinionated.

Perhaps the WorkCompsters must be included in such a call for trials for other crimes against humanity.

“An Injured Worker without a blog is UNARMED AND UNPROTECTED IN AMERICA’S WAR ON WORKERS. #Wow”  DO SOMETHING TODAY!  #OccupyVirtually!  JUST KEEP MOVING….Virtually… because WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.

i blog therefore i am a work comp survivor  watch for e course
