This poll was shared on Facebook. What do you think about teaching Injured Workers, represented and unrepresented, how to maximize use of Social Media to ensure “immediate, appropriate and necessary medical care and benefits” in a workplace injury, and documentation of the process, including a pipeline to sound the alarms when actions by professionals, medical/legal/bureacrats seems questionable, at best.
Currently, Injured Workers appear to have no Civil Rights or Human Rights and the industry profiteers have no apparent interest in doing anything that might disrupt the extreme profits of an extremely vile industry.
What say you? Are you a social media expert willing to volunteers some ‘free training’ and participate in a group in a pro-bono fashion?
Are you an attorney who wrings hands and complains, ‘ain’t it awful’ and if your clients had the media’s attention, could that help you get cases to the MEDIATION TABLE WITH INTENTION TO SETTLE? DO YOU HAVE A BLOG AND SUPPORT GROUP FOR YOUR CLIENTS?
Are you a defense firm that has incorrigible adjusters and inexperienced attorneys increasing risks for your firm and clients and think that a good social media program on both sides could mitigate file churning and med-legal fraud?
Are you a HR professional who believes you cannot even send a get well card to an injured worker and you are afraid of litigation because of the wrongs you observe? What if your company has an in-place social media platform, and even a group for your Injured Workers to convene and yes, even compare notes on the various doctors, lawyers and treatments. Would Corporate Legal encourage #CourageousConversation in a private social media community such as on LinkedIn and Facebook? DO YOU HAVE A BLOG AND SUPPORT GROUP FOR YOUR INJURED WORKERS?
If you are a District Attorney, Mediator, FBI agent, DOL agent or member of the ICC, do you have suggestions and resources for Injured Workers, around the globe, being tortured, maimed and murdered with little plausible deniability all because they got injured at work?
Are you an Investigative Journalist who must follow orders and have been advised that real stories on #WorkComp are VERBOTEN?
Are you a helpless family member or friend of an Injured Worker wondering what on Earth you can do to intervene?
Hey. Help me understand so we can help one another move forward? Got a blog? Yeah, I know, it’s hard.
I’m working on blog post about Social Media for Injured Workers (aka Virtual Combat Skills) since the #WorkComp industry seems to be escalating intimidation tactics of Injured Workers who dare to use social media like a MEDIA BLAST AND OR microphone.
Have you noticed?
Facebook has a reputation for being a place for #WorkComp “Victims” stuck in learned helplessness and whining that the #WorkCompsters don’t play nice.
NOT ENOUGH INJURED WORKERS HAVE BLOGS TO SURVIVE. LET’S MOVE ON TO PLAN B: USE WHAT YOU GOT.
ARE YOU USING SOCIAL MEDIA #BeyondFacebook?
Please let us know which social media platforms you have, which you need help with? Thanks
