Subject: FWD Update to Kim Mall and Daniel Elliott, original deceivers in LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE (sorry for any duplicates, don’t quite grasps email ‘groups’ anymore… tsk. 😕
Hi Kathy Martinez, since Kim is out of the office and her out of office reply suggested that you be contacted, I don’t know if you’d consider this email needing ‘immediate assistance’ or what, but since she was so instrumental in setting up failures to provide medical care and benefits since 2012, you can make that call.
We were hoping I could either return to work or return to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program for completion through December 2015, but I guess everybody has been too busy to address my file till the last minute, when deadlines are already gone. Tina, HR Director at Wyndham, must be under severe stress. You know that the Wyndham sales floors are highly stressful places — and they don’t even have Bagel Fridays! Goodness, one manager had a big stroke, another manager’s wife hung herself, and another manager was arrested for killing his wife. I’m actually sort of frightened about return to work to that sort of environment, but I don’t know if that can even happen now. I haven’t had a treating doctor since December 2014, and Stewart says he can’t help find a doctor (he doesn’t realize Kim Mall and the I & A officer, Valerie James, are the ones who found Dr. Bergey, the Orthopedic Surgeon….no, that’s not correct, Kim and Valerie found Dr. Jacob Rabinovich, another Orthopedic Surgeon who did an evaluation, then Kim was … well, you know how Kim is, so I had to find another attorney and they found Dr. Bergey—another Orthopedic Surgeon. What a mess.
One time when Kim and I were in Court with Judge Jimenez about the more than 300 pages of medical records omitted from the AME doctors transmission… oh, girlfriend…. maybe it wasn’t Kim’s doings with the messed up medical index, did you mess it up? Yikes. I don’t think Stewart even has a secretary, and he’s so funny, he tells me things like, ‘Ms. Ayres, I don’t have the neurology IMR report from Dr. Jurokowitz, would you kindly send me a copy” — and then I look at his incomplete medical index, and mercy, it’s listed there. He doesn’t read, or I dunno…. Anyway, this case is way out of control and many of us are hoping that it will be features on an upcoming ProPublica articles series…. Did you ever read their stuff? It’s great. THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION!! THE DEMISE OF WORKERS COMPENSATION……………
Yeah, I’d like to see THE TRIALS OF THE KILLER WORKCOMPSTERS…….
Anyway, I hope you’re not working late…. you can deal with this in the morning….. Check out my blogs, too… https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts. I used to be a secretary and can type about 100 wpms… but…. I can’t remember much of what I’ve typed, and shuffling through excel sheets…omg, what a challenge. And collating? OMG! Kim saw me break down in tears when when had to make some extra copies of stuff in Court and she thought I could put them in 4 little piles. Yikes! I just cried. That poor Judge found me at the parking lot sobbing hysterically cuz I had droppped all my papers…it was either than Court hearing or another….. Did you not send Stewart all the files? Or does he just not read? Anyway…. I’m being tangential…. I’ll sign off here.
Oh…. there’s already more words under this.. well, it’s almost signed off…. TTFN
We’re trying to be more transparent in our communications, and Stewart and I are really struggling with being on the same page I hope this helps us all better communicate about the needs of Wyndham Injured Workers, Working Employees and of course, Shareholders such as myself.
You have a nice day, and be sure to watch your dates on Proofs of Service…. that pattern of mis-stating dates can cause problems to more than the injured workers adversely impacted by the little lies.
Subject: LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE CNA 33269102we / print out of monies paid to injured worker since date of injury and MEDIATION UPDATE
Dear Fred Sachs, CNA Adjuster:
I AM UNABLE TO RETURN TO COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM TO COMPLETE THE PROGRAM DUE TO CNA/GRANCELL/WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE. I don’t have the money. CNA refused to pay benefits and refused to provide medically necessary treatments since the date of injury. File churning seems to be all the defense can do, along with obfuscation of facts, and out right making stuff up, and pretending their efforts are “the law”…..
I have spent nearly $50,000 trying to recover from the brain injury of 1/9/12 at the WorldMark By Wyndham Big Bear California resort, where no workers compensation policy, process or procedures were in place or known about by even Tina Jordan, who has apparently been promoted to even higher levels of incompentence. I have spent funds on medically necessary treatments that CNA failed to authorize, many failures based on clearly fraudulent activities of the law firm, Grancell Stander etc. in ommission of hundreds of pages of medical records, and false and misleading statements to evaluating doctors— cost incurred to survive the atrocities of Wyndham’s pathetic, vicious, cruel, and what appears to be diabolical and criminal workers compensation program. What’s next?
Just wait and wait and wait? OK…. If’s that’s the plan, that’s the plan. I SURRENDER TO THE COMFORT OF MY HOME AND WAR ROOM.
Stewart gets a little annoyed when I copy what he calls “supplemental people” but since he says he wants to “work with me” yet does everything contrary to making it possible for me to return to work and life, well, I just thought it best to include a few people more “supplemental people” who have also viewed my LinkedIn Profile so we can all be on the same page as we work this out. I hope all the email addresses are correct. I guessed at some. We’ll count on Michael Grabell to keep the appropriate ProPublica people advised.
BTW, you see their new articles? POWERFUL STUFF! GO PROPUBLICA! HELP SAVE THE AMERICAN WORKING CLASS FROM THE WORKCOMPSTERS! GOOGLE IT! Start with THE DEMOLITON OF WORKERS COMPENSATION and move along to THE DEMISE OF WORKERS COMPENSATION.
First of all, it’s not personal. It’s not business. It’s simply survival and an act of DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATHS.
1. I need a print out of the moneys CNA allegedly paid to me; SSA is having some confusion about what appears to be fraudulent mis-statements of facts.
2. What’s up with mediation and EAP???
What you people have done to me, you’re doing to otherss, and quite frankly, I think it’s time for it to stop. Dr. James O’Brien, Forensic Psychiatrist who was apparently paid handsomely to do the bidding of Grancell Stander “by any means necessary” suggested if I have human right complaints that I be told to TAKE IT TO THE HAGUE.
Ok. We’ll put that on the list. Might not happen before I expire, but the Millenials will rise and shine. They’re special that way, aren’t they. Boomers can offer the support that our years can provide.
It’s been over 3 years and 7 months since my injuries and since I worked…. YOU DON’T PAY BENEFITS OR PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE. THE WYNDHAM BOARD SHOULD HAVE AN EMERGENCY SESSION, AND CARL ICAHN GROUP SHOULD BE PRESENT….
Why don’t we agree to continue future communications via LinkedIn. I will create a new group called… WorkComp ADJ8181903.
If we are not yet connected on LinkedIn, let’s get right to it. https://www.linkedin.com/in/lindaayres311 I have about 90 unpublished blogs…. we’ll start back from the beginning so we can bring this case up to date…in a WAVE, so to speak. Thank you for this opportunity to be of service to My Fellow Americans also being tortured, maimed, and prematurely killed by the CNA version of the WorkComp Grand Bargain aka WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE.
Two things, well, three:
1. Benefits Print Out – please send me an updated copy….. SSA is confused about what CNA actually paid; I said it’s more fraud, experts tell me to wait and see;
2. Mediation Status – are we going forward with Judge Siemers now or in January 2016 or later?
3. Any luck in finding a primary treating doctor for me, with brain injury expertise to replace Dr Bergey who left the case in December 2014? Stewart says it’s not his job to find a doctor; Stewart also says he has nothing to do with medical treatment; Stewart sure seems to bend the rules as he makes stuff up, doesn’t he? SO WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR FINDING AND AUTHORIZING A TREATING DOCTOR AT THIS POINT? KIM MALL AND VALERIE JAMES PICKED DOCTOR BERGEY WHEN THEY DIDN’T LET ME ME SPEAK TO THE JUDGE IN DECEMBER 2012…. Do you realize in over 3 years and 7 months I have been unable to be seen/heard by a Judge regarding my right to medical care? Yeah, All court time has been pretty much legal chicanery about hundreds of pages of medical evidence being omitted with intent to deny medical care, and this year the joke du jour is attempting to get the Judge compel me to see an ENT – EAR NOSE AND THROAT doctor for a BRAIN INJURY. IT’S A LITTLE SMARTER THAN KIM’S INSISTENCE ON AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON FOR SAME, BUT NOT BY MUCH.
Because of the failures of so many people involved in my case, and the refusals to communicate with me, (or to send polite but empty responses like Tina Jordan’s Sunday morning email suggesting she missed the emails about return to work in December (not August) and the need for a doctor to sign off, I have nothing left to do but blog. I have approximately 90 draft blogs since summer 2013. Watch for them. Perhaps your organization willl learn something about the horrors of America’s workers compensation “EXCLUSIVE REMEDY”
These patterns of continuous harm continue. As you all knew, Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program reconvened August 24, 2015. I DON’T GET TO RETURN. SO I GUESS I AM BACK ON THE REST AND WAIT AND WAIT AND WAIT AND WAIT PROGRAM. ANYTHING ELSE WE NEED TO ACCOMPLISH BETWEEN NOW AND DECEMBER 14,2015? ANY MEDICAL CARE? CHECK MTUS/ACOEM GUIDELINES…. WE’LL TALK MORE ON ISSUES AND EVIDENCE OF FRAUD, THREATS AND EXTORTION AND PERHAPS MORE WILL BE REVEALED.
What’s the status on the request for intervention by:
I will be filing more complaints with DOJ, AG and ADA — I have more names to provide to them. The CorVel list of doctors is pretty incredible, isn’t it?
I THINK YOU ARE MONSTERS TO DENY THIS FINAL BIT OF HOPE—- returning to Coastline ABI program — FOR ANY SORT OF LIFE TO ME. I WILL BLOG NOW, SINCE I DO NOT HAVE FUNDS TO DO ANYTHING BUT TELL MY STORY, FROM THE COMFORT OF MY HOME, EVERY STINKING DETAIL. YOUR COLLEAGUES MAY OR MAY NOT APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR THEM.
ACTUAL BENEFITS PAID TO INJURED WORKER SINCE DATE OF INJURY 1/9/12 BY CNA
The Social Security Administration is investigating monies paid to me since date of injuries. It seems that that the numbers reported by CNA to various places are inconsistent and have caused tremendous burden to others in sorting it out. Seems to be a bit like a magical ‘shell game’.
Will you kindly send me a fresh print out of the 104 weeks of payments allegedly made, with dates and payees. Too many people also seem to think that CNA has been paying me approximately $4,000/month since May 2014… Wow, do your records show that, too? Where on earth is that money going? You did not pay me too many weeks in 2012, and … I have pages and and pages of trying to sort out when costs were shifted to EDD, and how reimbursements were figured, and the weekly amounts you paid and allegedly paid are all over the map.
PLEASE SEND ME A FRESH PRINT OUT OF INDIVIDUAL PAYMENTS MADE TO ME FOR DISABILITY BENEFITS ASAP. THE APPEALS DEADLINE IS APPROACHING. I SAY IT’S MORE FRAUD, BUT TELL ME TO LET THE ACCOUNTANTS WORK IT OUT.
MEDIATION STATUS WITH JUDGE SIEMERS WILL OR WILL NOT TAKE PLACE? NOW OR JANUARY 2016 OR LATER? THE QUESTION PRESENTED WAS:
“ARE YOU SERIOUS OR ???? ” ABOUT MEDIATION. THE EMAIL RECEIVED SUNDAY MORNING FROM TINA JORDAN WAS PERCEIVED AS A CLEAR INDICATION OF FULL INTENTIONS TO CONTINUE TO CHURN THE FILE AND RACK UP BILLABLE HOURS. IS THAT PERCEPTION ACCURATE?
Oh, did you see the new ProPublica report on the demise of Workers Compensation? Google it. Get on their mailing list. I hope Wyndham Worldwide and it’s workcomp program are featured in one of their upcoming articles.

Experience? Vacation Ownership Sales — still on disability leave for 3+ years, mostly w/o benefits, still fighting for my life, medical care and economic survival; Wyndham Worldwide and it’s legal counsel and insurance carrier have willfully and maliciously failed to provide medically necessary treatments for industrial injuries of 1/9/2012: Head Trauma, TBI, neck, back, right shoulder orthopedic injuries.
WILL THE GOOD PEOPLE OF WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE, many here on LinkedIn, MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF INJURED AMERICAN WORKERS NOW?
Since 2005, I successfully and happily worked in Honolulu, Lahaina, Torrance, Indio & Big Bear. Prior to timeshare sales, I served as an Executive Assistant to some pretty serious Captains of Industry….no-nonsense sort of people, very demanding of perfection and high cognitive abilities.
FOIA searches will likely share about goodwill non-profit organization, Prisoners Unanimous Embracing All Planetary Prisoners and related sharing in America’s maximum security penitentiaries in the 1980s, with full security clearances, Yes, I even “walked the ranges at USP Marion” and took a 12-step program behind the walls at USP-Terminal Island.

After nearly 3 years of denied medical care, still awaiting reasonable and appropriate care for clearly and repeatedly diagnosed #TBI injuries and repeated requests for care and return to work, with reasonable accommodations.
Finalist in December #WorkCompCentral 2014 CompLaude Awards- Injured Worker category. Will continue to advocate for Civil and Human Rights of Injured Workers locally, nationally and globally.
Extreme breaches of fiduciary responsibilities and FEHA violations by Wyndham and agents are alleged. ‘Lawyering Up’ sooner or later.
Malicious and willful failures to provide medical care have contributed to permanent brain injuries, compounded by acts of financial & medical terrorism and callous disregard of corporate responsibilities.
THIS STORY IS NOT UNUSUAL, SO THE SUPER LAWYERS SAY.

Who has been Naughty or Nice in the Mega Billion Dollar “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES” #WorkComp Industries? David DePaolo, you take the NICE LIST, Injured Workers will deal with the NAUGHTY LIST. “Let’s get right to it!” (Poll included below; voting practice!)
As you know, the fabulous #WorkCompCentral annual #CompLaude Awards is coming up, and their team is counting on YOU to discover and nominate some of the best of the best in the field of Workers Compensation.
This year, it is a national event, with, we hear, a touch of international flair with a keynote speaker. Perhaps next year the Awards Nominations will expand even future, to including all nations. For those in the industry who may be challenged to understand the meaning of “on or before August 31, 2015“ (as was the case in a recently aborted mediation effort) what it means is NOT AFTER AUGUST 31, 2015.
KISS! Here’s the link to the Nomination site; make your nominations on or before August 31,2015. PARTICIPATE. FIND THE GOOD PEEPS IN WORKCOMP, NOMINATE THEM, ACKNOWLEDGE THEM, AND STRENGTHEN THEIR HANDS. My PUBLIC Acknowledgement list follows soon to confirm that yes, I have met some fine, decent people in my fight to survive WorkComp Terrorism and Chicanery as an Injured, now Permanently Disabled Older American Female Worker since 1/9/12….from that, nominations will be submitted to the WorkCompCentral team BY OR BEFORE AUGUST 31, 2015.
In WorkComp, as is Life, identification of problems is a first step in establishing solutions.
In addition to the ‘problems” identified in the InjuredWorkerBlog, #IWblog, ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS, another way of looking at the content might be as a suggestion to ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP CORRUPTION AND SKULLDUGGERY. In more than 3.5 years, no agency or institution or law firm or organization has been found to be qualified, able and willing step up to the plate and cause resolution and settlement of the tragic handling of California Workers Case, Linda Ayres Vs. Wyndham Worldwide, ADJ8181903. So it is.
Since there are unlikely to be any investigations of the deviant handling and skulduggery involved in this case by the District Attorney, the FBI, the Department of Justice, the Department of Insurance, the Department of Labor— best possible next action seems to be to just create a DNN LIST — DO NOT NOMINATE — for CompLaude Awards, Best Companies, Best this or That—-pending further investigations by an organization such as ProPublic and NPR, the facilitators of THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION.
Watch for the #WorkComp #DNN List …. coming soon:

With a special category to also include WorkCompsters- #SMFH
Through a sifting/filtering process, then this Injured Worker can get right to the NOMINATIONS FOR THE 2015 WORKCOMP CENTRAL #CompLaude Awards. David DePaolo gets big kudos for creating such a valiant national effort. I really do have several nominations to submit. It’s been a busy month, dodging Rads, and dealing with frivolous orders to compel, and more financial chicanery and terrorism. Watch for the DNN List…. It may Annoy or it may Inspire and Surprise!
Thanks to Medicare and the 3.5 years of WorkComp delay, deny, deceive, I have some legitimate doctor appointments this week! Thanks for reading and sharing. More follows very soon! You’ll appreciate the DNN list, too.
Oh Oh… PS…. If you have never taken a look at the ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS blog page of RESOURCES, CHECK IT OUT. It includes some of my favorite peeps and services and providers. It will be revised to include others. Will you be listed on the “Naughty or Nice List”…
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Northern California expects to prosecute an applicants’ attorney for his role in a scheme involving an allegedly corrupt union boss, kickbacks for client referrals, banking violations, laundering proceeds from medical marijuana dispensaries, tax fraud schemes and even the infamous Hells Angels, according to documents unsealed Wednesday by the U.S. District Court for Northern California.”
The above picture is from the 2014 CompLaude Gala — yes, I was privileged to attend, as one of four InjuredWorker Nominated Finalists.
Yes, I took plenty of “heat” from the InjuredWorker community for attending. I arrived early, and met many of the exhibitors, and even attempted to maintain contact with some.
We apparently scare them apparently as much as they can scare us. ‘Can’t we all just get along? You could be next in the casualties of the mega billion dollar profitable WorkComp industries in America.’ We gotta convince them to change the business model from “Profits Before Lives” to something more Millenial Friendly, wouldn’t you agree?
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL PEOPLE OF GOODWILL TO COME TO THE AID OF HUMANITY.
Last year, the brilliant WorkCompCentral CompLaude event was California nominees only.
THIS YEAR, #WorkCompCentral has opened it to national nominations. Next year —-perhaps will be the first international Comp Laude Awards — as our neighbors are experiencing the same tragic mis-handling of work place injuries as we are.
The Canadian, Australian and UK injured workers seem to have more of a pro-active fight against the bad stuff on social media and in the Courts, whereas the majority of industry peeps AND Injured Americans appear to be addicted and practicing learned helplessness at the hands of the not-so-nice perpetrators of the industry. It’s time for change.
FIND THOSE WORKING TO MAKE WORK COMP A SAFER SYSTEM FOR INJURED WORKERS EVERYWHERE, AND STRENGTHEN THEIR HANDS! IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO? IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?
By the way, if any Injured Workers are interested in gathering there, with an Exhibit Table so they can see that we are human, and their industry failures have life and death consequences to real human beings, let me know know also by 8/31/15 and we’ll see what we can pull together.
Maybe my employer, Wyndham Worldwide, or it’s WorkComp Carrier, CNA, or their Defense Firm, Grancell Stander Reubens Thomas Kinsey will buy a booth and a table for an eclectic group of Injured Workers to facilitate participation? My injury happened 1/9/12 —- TBI — and you know how that’s going. You too, huh?
Well, if we cannot attend the gala, we can certainly #OccupyVirtually — lots of pictures and tweeting happen at the all day event!

A Friend recently wrote this about the years I have been fighting #WorkCompsters:
“…But their 1st choice is to kick it down the road, and make your life miserable. They’ve already done that. You have quite a trail of deceit etc. to tell at court. The trouble with judges is that they come from the legal profession. I’m back to thinking that they don’t want to go to trial. Even if they get a positive determination ~ you can appeal. And they’d like you to go away….”
CHANGE OF HEARING DATE — AGAIN – CHURN BABY CHURN – ORDER TO COMPEL ENT EVAL FOR TBI! D’OH PLUS DOCTOR SHOPPING FOR YET ANOTHER NEURO-PSYCH EVAL…. TILL YOU GET ONE TO AGREE WITH O’BRIEN? LOL….. He may have been off his meds, ya think?
Last year Fred suggested I come up with a proposal for you both. I researched and worked very hard on the calculations that I sent to both of you and the number I came up with was $1.3 million, in an acceptable structured settlement format, full complete release.
If I recall, you laughed and insisted on the same number Kim offered in Nov 2012—the standard cost of life for an injured worker in lieu of medical care ala Romano Trust vs Sedgwick—$100,000.
When Steve Chapman was involved with Dan Elliott to initiate conversations on settlement in early 2014, the number taken from my pre-SCRIPPS calculations was $700k.
What I have learned about my untreated brain injuries, risk of epilepsy, dementia and shortened life span, along with inability to work and devastating cognitive impairments…is not pretty. Your clients have effectively destroyed my life.
If there had been good faith efforts to help me get medical care and these were the results, that would be one sad story that I would have to just deal with. The abuse I have been subjected to that has caused permanent and irreparable harm is another story all together.
Make me an offer I can’t refuse.
I would imagine Steve Chapman could use his computers to do some “transparent calculations. I don’t like him and he doesn’t like me…but he may indeed do the right thing. Give him a call.
He won’t waste any more of his time time…He didn’t seem to think mediation would happen either.
I can be a reasonable woman, or not.
Tired of Fighting, but will fight till my last gasps, if necessary.

RE: Change of hearing date

Churn churn Churn….
…..Your recollection and assessments are incorrect.
This is not the first incident of WCAB favoring Defense. It goes [back] to Kim [in December 2012]…..in apparent collusion with the I and A officer, giving the Judges incomplete info in order to set the Judges up, too. Tsk tsk tsk. What a web.
Its amazing what y’all can get away with, isn’t it?
WCAB denied my ADA accommodations request about this Order to Compel, then I screamed and they approved it, changed the date, then cancelled the hearing in your favor denying me due process…again. A pattern and practice of WCAB Riverside. My DOJ complaints are being updated to reflect this new act of ADA violations and request for further investigations. I have yet to be heard in over 3.5 years by a Judge re my right to medical care. [You know, that pesky little issue that’s part of the Labor Code?] Surely some decent political rep may find that at least –odd if not alarming.
[The selected mediator’s] failure to disclose her conflict of dates to commence mediation, in light of my clearly expressed timeline/deadline was the issue. Her act seems quite self-serving and un-neutral. I apologize to you for believing I had found someone we could both work with. I understand her crowd is defense based but I believed she could be neutral. Apparently, I was wrong.
[You might be right, though. I suppose I could have responded to the September 21, 2015 proposed date the two of you agreed on after you wasted several more weeks since mediation was proposed this year, with a concise, ‘WHAT PART OF “BY OR BEFORE AUGUST 24, 2015 or maybe next year” WAS UNCLEAR?’
Was I unclear also that withdrawal of the Petition for Order to Compel and ENT evaluations for a TBI, along with excessive additional doctor shopping neuro-psych eval petition was necessary, or that the 8/25/15 date would stand for due process and my right to get in front of a Judge, and that mediation to participate in further 3D practices and file churning by Defense—is not my idea of NEUTRAL MEDIATION?
Lookie here what happens…. Defense Wins Again…at the expense of another Injured Worker. (It’s no wonder there’s just a small community of mediators, huh? Just an arm of the Defense and WCAB? Thanks Mediator and Judge Hill! )
Silly me, brain injury can make communication real tough, huh? I did suggest that advance estimated PD or payment of lodging to facilitate continued participation at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach, which commences August 24, 2015, be mediated, to no avail.]
I’m in timeshare sales, I value vacations for others also. I despise peeps who live by harming others “profits before lives”…… Had she disclosed she could not meet the 8/24/15 deadline, you and I could have made a decision. Sounds like you and she decided without me. That’s not neutral.
There are two Judges that may be willing to mediate….I think it is Judge [ ] and the other one [the mediator] mentioned in Newport Beach.
I will put out another request for another mediator list via LinkedIn, describing the difficulties we are having find a neutral party. I found an association of mediators on LinkedIn.
I’ll just keep blogging..I want to help David find some decent people to acknowledge at the WorkComp Laude* event. No easy task and he shouldn’t have to do it alone.
