Stop the Workers’ Compensation SOBs and WOE


Can you also be a little hard to “get” if their politics lean either side of center, if they are a basic “Difficult Person,” a mysoginyst, a basic WorkCompster, or even just a common psychopath?

Professional friends said, early on, “Get out of WorkComp by any means necessary, it will kill you.”

They had no clues about how.  Professional friends now still say, “Keep screaming, Linda, somebody’s got to do it!”

The latest blog at Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains might be of interest:

Workers’ Compensation SOBs and Global WOE from Australia Canada and USA

‘Cognitive dissonance’ often requires people to make victims of crimes wrong or a villain or a villain-ette, or to quote the late David DePaolo, of WorkComp Central from  Assume Responsibility, a “Vociferous Militant.”

American Injured Workers were unable to organize to fight the series of national attacks, diatribes and propaganda launch attempting to make Injured Workers the wrong-doers.  The industry alerted all in February to expect the propaganda launch in May.  Some joined it.  How sad.

In 2014, in Work Comp and Baseball DePaolo said:

There are, however, claims that are difficult from the very outset. Sometimes we hear about them but most of the time we don’t.

The ones that we do hear about get dismissed from our conscience too easily because the melodrama in their vocalization of what’s wrong gets drowned by our own jaded pessimism.

These cases, though, are real. There are real people behind these cases. People get hurt. People get toyed with. People don’t get what is needed, what is promised in the Grand Bargain, and set aside as disturbed and having unrealistic expectations.

Some contact me because of this blog, seeking answers, help and remedies.

I have met some – like Linda Ayers. I won’t get into Linda’s case here – that’s not the point.

Linda is vocal, like a few other injured workers. She has a blog, she is active in social media, she posts comments to this blog.

And she probably drives the defense crazy as she is prolifically passionate about making sure the system works for her and for other injured workers.

It’s easy to dismiss Linda’s activities as the rantings of an unstable person, but she is not an unstable person. She is a person who’s case spiraled out of control from the beginning, and we know that the early stages of a claim are the most critical.

It hard for most Americans to realize the atrocities that happen under the banner of Workers’ Compensation.  David mentioned me in a few more of his blogs, and we exchanged more than a few emails over the course of my case.

When I told him I was “attending mediation with an open mind, open heart, and empty briefcase” he was aghast, and insisted I needed a lawyer but that I was so angry, nobody would help me.  We had a few philosophical exchanges on those topics.   I am grateful to David for those exchanges and media coverage.

I was also, in 2014, one of the four finalists for CompLaude Awards, and in 2014, 2015 and up until May 2016, I was a strong advocate for the CompLaude Awards, and you can see the blogs to prove it!  Plenty of private emails were sent on behalf of the effort, also, and my nominations were significant, with at least one award winner — in the doctor category.

Since the “open mind, open heart, empty briefcase” strategy was successful, for all intents and purposes, I have been attempting to ‘rebrand’ from being a ‘screamer and thought provoker,’ despite the “Difficult Persons” deeply entrenched in the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models that most Americans don’t know about, and don’t want to know about.

Social Security Administration ‘mis-behavior’ and other improprieties apparently require renewed efforts to address further government malfunctions.  My carefully organized evidence arrived in Washington DC mail rooms last week, including letters to The Ten Congressional Representatives who have gone on record as being concerned about American Workers and Taxpayers and Workers Compensation.

Wait till they see the SSA package of loose marbles and loose screws, fabrications, falsehoods, and general malfeasance, with indicators of many unclean hands involved in the financial terrorism against me, and others like me. Might be interesting.  It’s another one of those ‘oh so sad, common stories’ that happen all the time, but you don’t hear much about those DIRTY OPEN SECRETS EITHER.

I retained a writer/editor to help dig through my wins to help with rebranding.  It was a costly event, with a typical cognitive dissonant reaction.  I shared my business resume and said it’s not really valid anymore, since cognitive impairments are what they are.  I thought I made it clear that I am injured, NOT STUPID.  I think that point may have been overlooked.

Early on, after a lengthy conversation, the editor said that my ‘story’ must be told but that it must be told in a way that people will want to hear more, and not simply want to kill me for telling the truth.  I said, “Yeah, exactly what I want your help with.”  That was months ago.

I make it clear that while I believe WorkComp arrests could fill a few cell blocks or privatized penitentiaries, my intention is not to bust the crooks, but to FREE THE HOSTAGES.  BIG DIFFERENCE.  ONE IS BASED IN HARSH REALITY, AND THE OTHER IS DELUSIONAL.   (Hint: Rico rules)

From the volume of notes I shared, draft 1 painted me as a total loser, victim, physically and mentally incapable of doing sh*t, and would have subjected me to litigation on top of that. That first draft was more along lines of ‘publish that, and they’ll surely kill you.’  😕

There was absolute inability by the party to see the dots being connected between the exterminations by Workers Compensation and by the Nuclear Industry.

Arguing about my volunteer efforts that have had a significant global reach since 2011 Triple Nuclear Meltdowns at Fukushima – WAS NOT AND IS NOT A DISCUSSION ITEM ON THE TABLE.

It was suggested that I choose one, and check with my pals on which to choose. The results were in….  Injured Worker Advocates suggested dropping the Radiation Warnings to #DodgeTheRads and why, as totally irrelevant; Anti-Nuclear Advocates suggested dropping Injured Worker Advocacy as they are good as dead anyway, if they have serious injuries.    “EXTERMINATIONS” would be all inclusive!

WorkComp has been known to work ok in first-aid situations for minor injuries. Horrific with serious injuries, and exacerbates injuries that, with immediate medical care, could result in return to work scenarios and partial recoveries.

One pal said, ‘Each camp, of course, wants that loudest mouth, and you’re a BIG LOUD MOUTH.’   😀

I would love to know that WorkComp is moving in a clean, life-saving direction for the millions involved, so I could just drop that topic…. but it seems that the propagandists are digging in to protect their profits by any means necessary — including your life or mine.

If there are more than 54 million injured and disabled workers in America, and approximately 8.9 million are on Social Security Disability, are the rest homeless and destitute?  SSA pays ‘nazi war criminals’ with greater ease than it pays Americans with Disabilities….yikes!   CLEAN UP TIME!  LET’S GO!

I guess that was lost money….I sent a note to that editor last week suggesting if it’s too hard, I understand, but darn, I paid A BUNCH OF MONEY FOR THAT.  I hope a refund follows, since draft 2 never arrived.   😕

A couple of my pals are compiling books about stories of people with brain injuries, and my story doesn’t fit their audiences.  Injured Workers have a particular extra set of survival battles, as anybody ever touched by that industry knows.

Even other TBI survivors cannot fathom the extent of malice and corruption too many Injured Workers are subjected to, that actually prevent recovery and often cause death because it is more profitable for the industry to ‘risk a $100,000 wrongful death suit’ than to pay for medical care in hundreds of thousands of dollars because care was neither immediate, prompt, or appropriate in so many cases.

How many of you have seen the Hillary videos [Google search hillary seizures – today the count is 547,000 results] showing what appears to be seizures after the DNC conventions, from either her Concussion of 2012, or her extreme radiation poisoning in Spring 2011 at the beginning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Meltdowns.

The Secretary had been sent to Tokyo to mitigate damage to commerce and establish censorship guidelines, apparently.   “Your Radiation This Week” describes the ongoing radiation poisoning across America.

So, if Hillary can run for president with a brain injury and convulsions/seizures, maybe SSA initial conclusions in 2012-2015 that brains are not needed to work as a sales executive were closer to accurate than believed.  The videos haven’t been scrubbed from the Internet, and there’s plenty of Good Kop/Bad Kop going on with the corporate media, as you have no doubt noticed.

American selection process, quite the circus this time, isn’t it.

“What difference does it make?”  — Check your local radiation readings and how many cities have been over 1,000 CPM, for how long. “Normal background is 5-20 CPM.”   See Your Radiation This Week – the series began April 2015.  Catch up. #DodgeTheRads

Home-efforts at rehabilitation have included studying online courses like a mad-woman, so maybe I do get to return to the WorkForce, one day soon.   Watch for the eCourse….it will be free … sort of a self-procured apprentice-ship.

I think it’s time for Congress to establish a Civil Rights and Human Rights Commission to further investigate what happens to Injured American Workers.

The Courts apparently ‘routinely rule in favor of the insurance carriers’ and some business owners call it ‘legislated fraud.’  You may be hearing more about it as the industry attacks on Injured Law Enforcement and Firefighters seems to be escalating.  Hopefully, their Unions will step up and speak out.

Heck, Fukushima-Gate investigations might be appropriate about now, too, huh?!  America, America!  What happened!


Here’s my best shot at REBRANDING, so far, shared over on Facebook in an online biz group, and in a few Injured Worker groups.

Linda Ayres‎ Occupy WorkComp  ·  LEARNING NEVER ENDS…

There are 67 of us here in Occupy WorkComp. Do YOU want to introduce yourself, and maybe say a little about your situation and how we might support you? Remember, it’s a PUBLIC GROUP — ain’t no secrets here! ;D

Here’s what I’m learning:

From another group, where I am learning more about how to get an eCourse together to perhaps help more of you save your own lives…

The instructor runs a great group, and invites everybody to introduce themselves, and there are group calls…it’s a course I paid to join, but they have a public group, too… I’ve told you about it before, and I’ll share more as things come together.

Here’s how I introduced myself to them, for what it’s worth…


Hi Everybody! Participation seems to be a key here at PPE! 😀

My abilities to be short and concise are a little impaired, so here’s my best shot…..The images below are the shortest version. 😀

“Please take a moment and introduce yourself! We officially kick off on August 1 but the party can start before then!” – Instructor

I would have joined in a bit sooner, but I was having a little FB thought-police detention issues… it happens to some politically-socially active members of our little communities. FB ‘ads’ seem to deter the harassment, to a degree.

I am in the process of getting to know ‘the new me’ and rebranding that new me and I look forward to getting to know more of you, and the services you are providing to help uplift humanity in these challenging times.

Like so many of you, I have also signed up for a gazillion courses, free and paid and have completed quite few of them, and I love Colleen’s style of teaching… she breaks everything down to do-able steps, in her royal style! The 7-day challenge was one I actually finished! Hoooray! I even blogged about the process over at LinkedIn.

I’ve been ‘working on’ creating an eCourse for over a year, and there have been too many ‘moving pieces’ for me. I am also working on a few different eBooks.

I am very hopeful of discovering strategies and methods and structures and support here so that the eCourse will be completed and this piece of social media will become like child’s play.

I am a Workers’ Compensation Survivor in the USA and a #TBI (#BrainInjury #Concussion) survivor as a result. Friends in Canada, UK and Australia face similar life-threatening challenges from workplace injuries The internet brings us all together to explore solutions.

If you have friends or loved ones fighting the good fight, don’t let them fight alone. Lend a hand, and some blog space!
My intentions are to help Injured Workers escape the system(s) with their lives — Workers’ Compensation is NOT an employee benefit.

My professional friends told me, ‘Get out of work comp by any means necessary – it will kill you.’ They didn’t have a clue about the how. It took me several years to find that ‘magic formula’ that may also work for others who have a grasp of the power of social media.

My blogs about workers’ compensation and nuclear matters include reminders to #DodgeTheRads#OccupyVirtually and to remember remember…

Learning never ends. See you over at Kajabi-Land and Teachable!


WorkComp – Updates on America’s Dirty OPEN SECRETs

Injured Workers’ Stories Are The Same

–the minor differences are names, body parts and case numbers – Ask a Doctor or Lawyer for confirmation

Ask Your Injured Friends and Neighbors, too!

identify definition

“The reason you draw the reactions from these folks is not because you are being vilified, or because they have a disdain for the injured worker with a voice or any other malicious reason.”

“It is very simple – you offer nothing positive relative to change.”

“Anyone can complain. Few do anything to effectuate change.”

“Drawing attention to the negative, which you have done for the past several years, does nothing to further the conversation, offers no solutions, provides no road map.”


…It simply is not enough to complain. Everyone has a complaint. A complaint without a solution is bulls**t. You may as well just dig a hole and hide because no one is going to pay attention.

Everyone knows that bad sh*t happens in work comp and that there are profiteers off of the injured. That’s no secret.

So what are YOU going to do about it? …. Anonymous Industry Mouthpiece

The contempt and disdain that masks the dangers to Injured Workers by the industry profiteers is undeniable and sounds pretty darn dangerous, doesn’t it?

They ‘might be right.’

I wonder what if the 30,000 + viewers of have any opinions on the foregoing statements?  If so, please tell me more at

Watch for future issues of for strategies on how to deal with such interactions.  Remember remember Ghandi…

‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then…YOUR BLOG POSTS GO VIRAL!’  – or something like that, huh?   xooxoxo

I want to find a way to propose solutions to help Injured Workers escape the WC System with their lives.  The laws are unenforced and meaningless.

I have a collection of Injured Worker stories, most of whom prefer to be Anonymous.  Watch for them.  They include, but are not limited to, in progress tragedies apparently caused by Sedgwick and others.  Most have poor-to-no legal representation, advocacy, medical care or benefits.  Yes, in America! An AMERICAN DIRTY OPEN SECRET.

Too many lawyers just make stuff up to protect profits by any means necessary. The US Constitution is mocked by the WorkCompsters, and far worse, they get away with it.  You don’t look.  You don’t care. Till you’re stuck in the box car, heading for the death camps of WorkComp.  Enough is enough.

It will require teams of mediators and structured settlement people. Would you find that of any interest? Start with a plan to release all POW’s who have been in the WorkComp System 4 or more years…..within 12 months, with the help and supervision of the National Guard.

It requires “arming ” Injured Workers with the ability to blog and share their stories, heinous as most of them are.

I am also in the process creating a course for Injured Workers to empower them with Work Comp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills!  Watch for it!

I am wondering about the possibilities of a collaborative effort and ezine and possible Tele summit to unite voice of any good people in Workers Compensation with victims of WorkComp to lead legitimate national discussions “Of the People, By the People and For the People.”

I am one voice speaking on behalf of Injured Workers. There are a few of us.

Canadians and Australians seem more vocal about the same class atrocities. Perhaps they don’t fear their governments like so many American’s do?  Has our Constitution become so meaningless that an entire industry can profit by destroying a segment of the Working Class?   ‘When they come for you, there will be no one left to speak for you…’

Most injured workers are too terrified of the WorkCompsters and their legislated fraud and surveillance and threats, compounding denied medical care and benefits.  Doesn’t that truth make you shake your head and want to shout, “NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!!”

The Injured Worker stories are the same — minor differences are names, body parts, and case numbers.  The outcomes are much the same too…with degrees of further maligned health,  income and job losses, botched surgeries, risk/cost shifts to taxpayers via Social Security and prison systems, ETC.

Some experts insist that the best injured workers can hope for in America is social security disability and an early death.   Really, some industry investigative reporting from the dark side, huh?

Others suggest that the best American’s can hope for is a program to provide ‘food for the poor injured workers’ rather than LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR MEDICAL CARE AND BENEFITS, indictments from criminal conduct of the WorkCompsters, and the protection by the National Guard for extreme CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN EVERY STATE IN THE UNION.


Congress didn’t offer assistance with food banks for poor tortured and abused Injured Workers.   Here’s the October 2015 letter where the ten signers clearly offer assistance, that could indeed come in the deployment of the National Guard, since State agencies also fail injured workers, nationally.

“….and whether added authorities are needed to better ensure that the interests of injured workers and taxpayers are protected.”


If the laws are unenforceable, then there is no choice but to immediately demolish the workers compensation systems and commence trials for the crimes being committed against every Injured Worker in America, and taxpayers, and employers and legitimate service providers.  You could be their next victim.

are we going to see YOUR shoes here

I am a work comp survivor, who was extremely unsuccessful in finding competent legal counsel.  Nevertheless, in pro per, ‘the parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.”  #BloggersSurviveWorkComp

Doctor and Lawyer pals advised to “get out of the workers comp system by any means necessary; it will kill you.”   Some later said that in their entire careers, they never saw anybody fight so hard to survive WorkComp.

One such ‘fan’ suggested that I create a ‘coaching program.’  From that simple encouragement, I began working on a new blog, and an eCourse, Surviving Work Comp and Virtual Combat Skills on Teachable.

Personal ‘rebranding’  post-WorkComp is difficult when hearing fresh horror stories, while being continuously assaulted by industry trolls and their ilk.  It can, however, be accomplished, with a little help from our friends.

I have been a strong advocate for the CompLaude Awards 2014-2015 and I used my resources to also share in the social media communities about the recent 2016 best blogs contest.

A search of the website, results in pages of and pages of posts about the Comp Laude event.  Ditto for the ‘Best Blogs’ event.  Call it ‘drivel’ if they will.  Sticks and Stones…..

We also shared news of the Sedgwick Institute Linked in group, for what it’s worth, after reading weeks before of the mega-funded SEDGWICK INSTITUTE, allegedly established to investigate the ‘issues’ of WorkComp.  Search my blogs for further info.  Google it.

I blog extensively, to the best of my abilities, as I recover from Worker’s Compensation and brain injury.  My anti-nuclear efforts have suffered tremendously due to WorkComp battles, but it has helped to see the parallels between the ‘PROFITS BEFORE LIVES’ nuclear and insurance industries, and the ‘swaths’ of 21st Century Sonderkommando.

I live near Joshua Tree National Park in California, USA. I am much nicer than I may appear in my blogs, and while my ability to speak is still impaired and challenging, I can speak but written communications are much easier for me, post-injury. If you have a story to share, send it to me.  We Are The Media Now.

Please let me know if you think there might be mutual benefit in a discussion. I have several projects on the table and it seems that the industry has amped up their propaganda blitz in a feeble effort to neutralize or mitigate the truths exposed in the 2015 Insult to Injury / Demolition of Worker’s Compensation series.

“Injured Workers without a blog are Unarmed and Unprotected In The WarOnWorkers!  #WoW”

Here are the industry’s picks of the Best Blogs of 2016.  Note the absence of Injured Worker Representation.

They all seem tasked with a propaganda launch to attempt to mitigate the truths exposed in 2015 by ProPublica and NPR efforts that just exposed the tip of the iceberg.  They are apparently having a ‘secret’ national discussion in May…. we’ll see what comes of that, won’t we.  So far, not so good in the open-ness and transparency arenas.  Attacks on Injured Workers seem to be escalating, and tales of WC Nurses posing as employees at doctors offices have been reported to be threatening, intimidating and terrorizing injured workers at doctor’s appointments.  SMH…. thinking, ‘NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!’

InjuredWorkersUniting!  SilentNoMore!

Share the link.  We’ll create another directory with Injured Worker reviews of the accuracy of their content, in due course.

Follow them all, and search their sites to see which ones actually bother to report on WorkComp Fraud legitimately…. the carriers seem to have the most indictments, and employees weigh in at less than 1%.  Follow that money trail.

JOIN IN THE DISCUSSIONS ON LINKEDIN.…  and tell your friends and neighbors; your governments already know.

You might also peruse these blogs for some potentially inspiring thoughts for actions….  “It takes a village.”

RE:  Your Email of 2/12/16: National Conference of Insurance “Legislators”. List of Legislators that were specifically on workers comp

Thanks for your email and thanks for asking.
Yes, You may copy me publicly on your email efforts to increase awareness of the need for immediate intervention and change in the National Workers Compensation.  If I can help, I will help.
Those of us working for transformation and saving lives must absolutely be aware of respective efforts, and help where we can.  We “Work Like Antz!”
Remember that industry trolls would divide us, to maintain the silence and oppression and violations of civil and human rights.  They are everywhere.
Feel free to share this blog with your group, and they can take it or leave it.  #Blog4TheWorkCompCure!  
ants and power
Further thoughts for your pondering are below.
The Link to the NCOIL – National Conference of Insurance Legislators … for the states is a interesting site!  It also has links to “related Web Sites” Thank you for sharing it!  Those who have any faith left in the legal systems may be served by writing to each of the named representatives, and to the October 2015 Congressional representatives!
The #WorkCompsters are apparently aiming for a national discussion on work comp matters — closed door and excluding injured workers?
Recent news indicates it will be a secret meeting of a handful of industry influencers, undisclosed location and participants, and may include two ‘injured workers’ and results only will be provided with the public at large.  It seems to be taking place someplace ‘in the Heartland’ (Let’s hope they check Your Radiation This Week for updates on the radiation levels in their city of choice, and that HEPA filters are provided in the meeting room, at the very least! It’s a litigious crowd, they might create a class action for the dangers they are being invited to participate in!)
More on that in coming blogs….those Secret Tribunals have always been questionable throughout history!
political language (2)
Do the 21st Century Sonderkommando ‘come in limousines, not tanks!?’  Will they do a preliminary national poll to include all parties involved and knowlegeable about the horrors of American WorkComp practices, or will they ‘shuck and jive’ amongst themselves, just like they do at those expensive high-end conferences at the best joints in America?  Total cost per attendee is factored in to somebody’s bottom line?   Rooms at what, $300/nite plus per diems?  All they can eat and drink?  With a few panels and chats that could reach more ONLINE?
INJURED WORKERS ARE PROHIBITED ALWAYS FROM ALL INDUSTRY EVENTS?   Can’t learn/Can’t teach.  Hmmmmmm.  Talk about segregation and discrimination?   One work comp industry organization actually openly and disdainfully prohibits injured workers of any kind at their events, and allows attendees to bring a guest ONLY if the guest is a SPOUSE?  WOW!  Ain’t that nothing!   Do they do marriage certificate and bed checks, too?
Why is that?   Years ago I worked for an attorney who always said, “PEOPLE WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THE WRONGS THEY HAVE DONE TO YOU!”

The doctor’s story is common.  The attorney story is HEROIC!   Steve Gursten, Esq.  is an American Hero, and facilitated a win for the First Amendment, and for his truck driving brain injured client. California attorneys could learn a great deal from Steve, and how to truly protect a client, instead of serving them to the insurance industries for a ‘few pieces of silver.’    Maybe Steve should be invited to the Secret Tribunal…. he’s a Michigan PI attorney, obviously not leased/owned by any insurance companies.  The ol’ WorkComp crowd will likely be heavily invested in CYA studies. See more details on IME issues here:

The First Amendment wins in dropped ethics probe over lawyer’s hatchet job tactics blog post! #Blog4TheCure

Will the National Discussion Secret Meeting simply be a polite get-together to suggest that Michael Grabell, Howard Berkes and the teams at NPR and ProPublica were — WRONG?   I’ve read every article in the Demolition of WorkComp series and I have yet to see them seriously straight up address the FRAUD AND CORRUPTION.   Insinuation, yes, but nothing to take to the District Attorneys, yet.  Maybe soon!

Sedgwick pays $1.13 million to settle California comp violations

Will they be discussing the “Lessons Learned By Sedgwick”?   Romano Trust was not enough?   It’s become Romano-Syndrome, hasn’t it?    #Blog4TheCure!  We’ll talk more soon on the Sedgwick Institute and the grants being handed out to long time WorkComp people to keep the merry go round turning?

Maybe a hotline for dying Injured Workers on the rest and wait and wait and opiate program, handled by a third party could be discussed at the Secret Tribunal?

No injured worker under the Sedgwick plan I have been in touch with has any faith whatsoever for any hope for any good faith actions after years and years and years of abuse.  Most have retained more than one attorney, none of whom were able to get reasonable medical care sufficient for return to work, or any other protections.  WHO WILL PROTECT INJURED WORKERS IN AMERICA?!

What do you tell an injured worker who says, “My attorney said he makes so little money on my case, he told me that it doesn’t matter if he returns my calls or not.  When it’s over, he’ll still get the same little bit of money, so he has lots of files and can’t give my case any attention.”  HOW IS THAT ETHICAL OR EVEN HUMANE?  It certainly does not pass any ‘competency’ tests!

When will the attorney groups begin to monitor the horrors they facilitate by such behaviors, and worse?   How about the attorney who says, “Fraud? I haven’t heard that word since law school.  I wouldn’t have a clue how to proceed in exposing that!”   Or the attorney who says, ‘Romano Trust vs. Sedgwick gave the industry the green light to withhold medical care from all injured workers, across America, and risk merely a fine of a maximum of $100,000.  It’s cheaper than medical care in most cases.’


How about the Super Lawyers who know about “the issues” that permeate the WorkComp system and shrug and call say “The System Is Broken” ……    Talk about Dodging The Facts!  Sounds complicit to most injured workers!  

How about the attorneys who bank only on ‘high profile cases’?  If that’s the case, it is incumbent on every Injured Worker to CREATE A HIGH PROFILE, BY ANY AND EVERY MEANS NECESSARY.    As Michael Grabell of ProPublica was recently quoted, he said words to the effect that most people don’t give a hoot about WorkComp till they are in the system, and fighting for their life to escape the horrors.  I’ll find the article and post it when I do.

Anybody in the business more than 10 years is surely considered part of the problem? Anybody in the business more than 5 years is surely considered part of the problem.  Heck, ANYBODY IN THE BUSINESS IS SURELY CONSIDERED PART OF THE PROBLEM OF MAIMING AND DISABLING AND YES, KILLING INJURED WORKERS ACROSS AMERICA, FOR PROFITS.   Those who have remained silent, or just left the industry are quite as culpable, wouldn’t you agree?

Will they discuss real issues like fraud, collusion, malpractice?  Will they look at how fake-doctor reports are factored in to the ‘rising medical costs’ in long drawn out WorkComp Cases?  Will they address how paying off an on-the-take doctor to use a bit of slight of hand and deceptions with a touch of plausible deniability to ensure denial of medical care for the $7,000 range, verses necessary immediate medical treatments in the tens of thousands, and life medical in the millions, per case?
FOLLOW THE MONEY. Will they look at the butchery by the “Angels of Death” — Josef Megele-like ‘surgeons’ leased/owned by the WorkComp industries and complications caused by left over foreign objects?


Will they discuss the torturous practices of leaving foreign objects behind in a surgery, then cutting off pain meds without corrective surgeries?  Will they look at failures to treat complications after botched surgeries? Will they look at cost-shifting to Welfare and Social Security Disability, and the the trickery of the Long Term Disability Providers and apparent collusion there, also?

Committees Of Bloggers, Injured Workers and Friends of Injured Workers,  sharing the harsh realities of WorkComp is required.
Please let me know if any of your friends have blogs and vlogs (videos) to be included in a directory currently being compiled.  Send an email to and put INJURED WORKER BLOG in the subject line, please and thanks.   If you have an industry blog, please send an email to and put WORKCOMP INDUSTRY BLOG.   Several are already listed in the AAWCGT blog under Injured Worker Resources….add to it!  We Are The Media Now.
TARGET:  AT LEAST 50 Blogs/Vlogs by Injured Workers and Friends of Injured Workers this year; the sooner the better.
herd cliff .
There’s a new website called  It even (bravely) includes a video, being as authentic as possible. Here’s the link in case you haven’t seen it yet.. – Take 1
It will share WorkComp Survival and Combat Skills.  It will also be a series of e-courses, for the use and benefit of Injured Workers and to empower the few in industry who to not consciously intend to maim and kill injured workers. SIGN UP TO GET NOTIFIED BY EMAIL.
Many WorkComp workers are at high risk of joining the ranks of Injured Workers over their lifetimes, and many don’t even have a Twitter account or Facebook page, let alone the all powerful BLOG!  The new site will incorporate lessons learned, in a general way, in the blog,   All are invited to follow both blogs, and provide open or private comments and suggestions as we go forward.
Due to my work injury, I’m slower cognitively than I used to be, but I keep moving forward, one step and one post and one blog at a time.  It is something we can all do.  Implement “Compensatory Strategies.”
Several Injured Workers have written books!  Good for them. Now comes the ‘marketing’ and putting your book in front of influencers and influenced, and other injured workers! Once published, YOUR WORK HAS JUST BEGUN!     Let’s create a group for you authors to support one another in marketing efforts!   You’re not alone; quit acting like you are!  If you don’t have a blog yet, do it today! Start a study group of what you’re already written! Build your email list.
IF YOU HAVEN’T WRITTEN A BOOK ABOUT YOUR STORY YET, LET GET RIGHT TO IT! Others who have gone before us can light the way.   Send me an email of your interest and we’ll organize some pow-wows.  BE PRO-ACTIVE!
Building on the list of the 10 Congressional representatives, apparently incited by the ProPublica/NPR piece, The Demolition of Workers Compensation,  who signed the October 2015 letter addressed to the Department of Labor —  is a very good move.  BRAVA!
The list of legislators you have shared might be enlisted to join with the others, and issue an updated later with all the signatures of those public representatives charged with overseeing Workers Compensation atrocities and ensuring that corrective adjustments are made immediately, imho.  Sharing this article, US Lawmakers Call for More Oversight of Workers’ Comp COULD serve to incite support, letting them know it’s time to act.  Be sure to include the link to the actual October 20, 2015 letter from Congress to the Department of Labor.  Here’s that link.

Bear in mind that the parties in my case “reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement” and the only reason I continue to bother on a national and international level on WorkComp matters can be summed up in the words of Einstein, ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the DUTY to act.”
Thanks again for sharing, Cecilia Watt, Injured Worker for  Crimes Against Injured Workers  Spreading awareness to the public of the crimes, fraud and tactics used against injured workers as they navigate a corrupt workers compensation system.

The words of Sophie Scholl of The White Rose Society, who did not survive Nazi Germany for speaking out,  are as appropriate today as they were back then.
