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

WORKERS’ Compensation is a HUGE PROBLEM in USA, Canada, UK, Australia & beyond.. The Australians are somewhat organized…. Canadian are vocal…. Americans……not so much.

So many sad, SOB stories in Workers Compensation, that non-injured people so often fail to believe, huh?

Well, as you know, WITHOUT A BLOG AND A GROWING DATABASE, INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED. UNPROTECTED AND SOL  IN THE GLOBAL WAR ON WORKERS.

It’s time for Injured Workers Uniting – Silent No More because SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH WORKERS’ COMPENSATION, ISN’T IT?

INSULT TO INJURY WAS JUST THE BEGINNING

Here’s one group in Australia, INJURED WORKERS SUPPORT NETWORK AUSTRALIA,

What is the Injured Workers Support Network? Your Questions Answered

This week the main question asked was “What is the Injured Workers Support Network?”

 

IW AUSTRALIAN NETWORK STORIES 8 6 2016



WE NEED GROUPS LIKE THIS EVERYWHERE, SO IT WOULD SEEM TO ME, IN EVERY COUNTRY AND EACH OF THOSE COUNTRIES WITH WORKERS THEN MUST CONNECT WITH THE OTHERS. THE INTERNET MAKES IT POSSIBLE.  Maybe something like this:

 

IDWA-USA Injured Disabled Workers Associations – USA

ABOUT THIS GROUP

IDWA-USA Injured Disabled Workers Associations – USA is an idea whose time has come.  Join in the vision of INJURED DISABLED WORKERS ASSOCIATIONS across the USA to include every State, and around the globe

Coming soon, something like:

IDWA-AU Injured Disabled Workers Associations – Australia

IDWA – CANADA – Injured Disabled Workers Associations – Canada

IDWA – Injured Disabled Workers Association – UK

IDWA – Injured Disabled Workers Association – Singapore




Joining in creating a global effort… one group, one page, one post, one blog, one email, one phone call, one action at a time…

Any time, anywhere and Injured Worker reaches out for help, I want the hand of IDWA to be there, and for that, I am responsible.

 

Here’s the Australia website…. INJURED WORKERS SUPPORT NETWORK AUSTRALIA http://www.injuredworkerssupport.org.au/

Contact info is at the end of the brief video… I’ll do what I can to reach out to Rowmen. Perhaps you will, too?

They even invite Injured Worker stories, and probably don’t have nasty ol’ trolls trying to stop them from helping, by threatening “legal action.”

# # #

Sidebar: The editor I thought would be able to help ME get YOUR stories properly edited and formatted and ready for ebook didn’t work out. I think the topic of what’s happening is too harsh.  “Next!”     We may just put it together and e-publish on Create Space and call it ” SURVIVING WORKERS COMPENSATION – Draft 1″  😀

cognitive dissonance

NOBODY WANTS TO BELIEVE THIS KRAP HAPPENS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY….. UNDERSTAND THAT, AND CONDUCT YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY.

# # #

In the USA we have NAIDW.org – a great online resource. Give Jon A. Arbay a shout-out and see if they need any volunteers to help with anything and everything… Maybe Jon will address this group in a FB Note or blog and tell us how we can support them supporting American Injured Workers.

Here’s their FB page:
https://www.facebook.com/naidw/ 😀

I think he’s still here in this group too, unless we ran him off.

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

Who will find out about a similar group in Canada and bring the info back to this group?

On FB there is Injured Workers Fighting WSIB but it says it’s a ‘government organization’… ?? https://www.facebook.com/ONIWGNETWORK/

Here is their Google+ site on WSIB Corruption? https://plus.google.com/communities/107513170697707197393

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

If you are a part of these organizations, please check with your members and bring a post here to this group, identify what sort of help you need, and we’ll see what we can do.

I reached out to some other virtual groups recently; we’ll see how they respond… I’m pretty hopeful that once they grasp the atrocities being committed, they will want to lend a hand.

If any of you have made any progress with establishing your own blog, let me know. Send me the link with WORKCOMP BLOG somewhere in the subject line at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com and start building your email list.

We need “units of service in every state—people to people.” I would imagine the same is required in Canada… province to province?

FB is not enough….

In USA, Injured Workers did not fight against a known industry Workers’ Compensation propaganda blitz that was told about in February, and launched in May, publicly, on their blogs.

If you don’t follow industry blogs, and don’t have your own blog, well, you know the ol’ saying… WITHOUT A BLOG….. INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED AND UNPROTECTED AND SOL.

IDEAS??!?!

Anybody there with an interest in saving lives from the WorkComp extermination machinery with some extra blogging etc…#OccupyVirtually….. as if lives depend on it??

There is one active Injured Worker blogger in the USA, to the best of my knowledge. The US Work Comp industry has 22 bloggers shaping public opinion with massive amounts of disinformation.

There are a handful of Injured Worker’s with Facebook pages and groups. A couple posters on LinkedIn. Any other BLOGGERS you have discovered?

My 2 WorkComp blogs:

AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com/list-of-posts/ since 2013

MyWorkCompCoach.com

 

I am working on assembling some anonymous injured worker stories (for the protection of the injured workers from retaliation) and I’m working on creating an eCourse to illustrate how to escape the system and regain/reclaim civil and human rights.

Too many injured Workers our “dying on their knees”

The Australians in the above video seem to have a model that works. Any thoughts?

MESSAGE me or mail at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com if you have ideas to share? Thanks! Linda

PS. #DodgeTheRads! It’s dangerous out there!

ps What do RADS have to do with Workers’ Compensation, you may opine??!!  Think about compromised immune systems, for starters.  Google search YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK.  Take all necessary precautions.   After Fukushima triple nuclear meltdowns in March 2011, many Australians believed the nuclear industry propaganda that they were ‘safe’ in the Southern Hemisphere… that was partially true…for a few weeks.  That was a long time ago, and the internet has been seriously ‘scrubbed’ so you don’t have to fret too much about those harsh realities either.  Just sayin…

“I go back and forth, obviously, about the relevance of workers’ compensation in today’s world. Sometimes I whine about systemic problems. Sometimes I praise what I believe to be a good value to society when all goes well.”

“Mostly though I believe that we don’t need to “fix” workers’ compensation. We just need to make what we have work properly by all of us doing our jobs to the best of our abilities; respecting the law, being accountable and punctual.”   DePaolo’s World:   Annmarie’s Dad

Sedgwick Institute – Linked In Group — Are YOU In? LinkedIn or Facebook — WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? Let’s see!

 

Will other WorkComp Thought Leaders Follow with More Groups embracing Injured Workers and Taxpayers?

Linda Ayres commented on this  

[on LinkedIn, for those of you unfamiliar with the platform…it’s much like Facebook and Twitter]

Linda Ayres

Hey! Did you read this yet? Did you join the “Sedgwick Institute” on linked in yet? C’mon, let’s go! The May WorkComp National Discussions are about ready to begin. Here’s my take on it: https://lnkd.in/bR8785Y

What’s YOURS? I will check with Jonathan Mast to see if they will be having a Facebook “Sedgwick Institute” group, I think perhaps a “SI – VENTING ROOM” could prep more Injured Workers to join a mixed group. #TTFN

[In the meantime, we can use a FB public – group place holder at Occupy WorkComp to start organizing and blogging support]

  1. Linda Ayres

    There are only 20 people in the group so far. C’mon. You have something to say? There’s your open door! Carpe Diem! #Blog4Freedom, Life, Liberty and Justice for All! It’s time to restore Civil Rights and Human Rights to Injured Workers NOW.  show less

  2. Linda Ayres

    MyWorkCompCoach.com says “…If you’re an Injured Worker without a blog, you are Unarmed in the War Against Workers. You may be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and have to add that diagnosis to your list….”  show less

  3. Fonzseau Darren

    I put my request in. Will see.

  4. Linda Ayres

    Yaaaaay Fonzseau Darren! The “Sedgwick Institute” LI Group was 13 members when I joined, and it’s up to 33 now. I don’t imagine that Jonathan Mast or their team of administrators watch it like Hawkes, so let’s hope tomorrow it will reach at least 100 and keep growing.

    We’ll see if Jonathan and team are planning on a FB “Sedgwick Institute – FB Group” of similar guidelines and intention. We can help them build it!

    If so, Injured Workers might be able to create a complimentary group called something like “Si – Injured Workers Venting Room” so Injured Workers can do an unbridled brain dump, to facilitate more facts. ONWARD! We Are The Media Now!

  5. Linda Ayres

    We, who are outside of the system now, could then collectively help re-write the issues without the emotions that go with being a WorkComp Victim, and the related PTSD and [OPIATE] druggings – so that more SIMPLE FACTS can be presented in the SEDGWICK INSTITUTE GROUPS, to be elevated to their actual “Institute” of “INDUSTRY THOUGHT LEADERS”

    We might find some social workers, paralegals and nurses and doctors and lawyers to help us review and re frame the stories so that the “Thought Leaders” can grasp the content. I’m looking for some now. Keep your eyes open, too!

  6. Linda Ayres

    I know Bob Wilson ‘s May ‘National WorkComp Discussions’ does not (yet) embrace Injured Workers input, but maybe he will be inspired by the direction of the Sedgwick Institute Open forums and LinkedIn group.

    Maybe David David DePaolo‘s WorkComp Central will also create a FB group for Injured Workers to help, and then maybe Bob will see the value in Injured Worker Input.

    Maybe Joseph Paduda, Barry Thompson,  Richard FinePeter Rousmaniere, Art Wilcox, Roberto CenicerosThomas F. Martin, Alan Gurvey and others will lend some energy to getting more items on the discussion tables.

  7. Linda Ayres

    Hey! Here’s a thought! Maybe a joint invitation letter from the WC Industry Thought Leaders TO Injured Workers & Taxpayers could open those doors to further discussions, sort of like the letter from Congress to the DOL Secretary.

    EINSTEIN IF I WERE TO REMAIN SILENT

    Of course, investigative reporters would be naturals in such a discussion group, if the intent is to get the truth on the table and identify real problems and create real transformations and resolutions. I still think teams of Mediators and Structured Settlement peeps is a good next step, for any case over 4 years old, particularly if it’s a back or brain injury… w/limits on how long cases can drag on and on.  show less

  8. Linda Ayres

    PS For any LinkedIn peeps also on alternative social media, Facebook, I’m regularly censored from posting in groups, even my own, but I do have access to my pages and events.

    fb censored blocked again from groups 4 27 2016 1143 am   CENSORED FB 4 27 2016 1129 AM

    Let’s connect over there…..We will do what we can to get some serious thinkers to join the Sedgwick Institute linked in group, and any new groups thought leaders open up to embrace injured workers. After all, the though leaders have businesses to ‘lead’ ALL BECAUSE SOMEBODY GOT HURT AT WORK. Let’s all get along and work on solutions now. Thanks

  9. Linda Ayres

    How to find me on FB, and yes, it’s another long story… for another time. The page is “shared” with Lucy Occupy, because she has no papers to show to the FB thought police. https://www.facebook.com/LucyOccupy.311 so after lock outs, the compromise was to share profile space with LucyOccupy — she has her own page though…. and is known and loved in the real anti-nuclear communities — since 2011. show less

Subject: VOICE MAIL RE: LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE CNA 33269102WE – COASTLINE LODGING, SSA RECORD OF PAYMENTS, MEDIATION  (Fred Sachs voice mail)
TBI END THE SILENCE
Hi Fred, Stewart, Tina and Michael and Shane:
.
People keep telling me not to take these atrocities personally, that CNA is doing this to all injured workers.  They say the law allows it.  I don’t think so.  Fraud is a felony, that means it’s against the law.

Anyhow, attached is a voice mail message with Fred Sachs.

IF you guys can organize comp rooms at the Ramada Inn-Newport Beach on Superior Avenue, starting next week, I still have a chance to resume Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program.  Without such help, I cannot return.   I’m not asking for an advance on anything because the $5,000 you provided in January to pay for lodging,  Matrix called it “income” and says it gets ‘subrogated’ and I am paying that back to them.  I tried to explain that it for treatment, so in essence, you gave Matrix $5k, not me, I was apparently just the intermediary.   I hope that doesn’t make me complicit in some sort of insurance con-job. Yikes. So, Tina Jordan or Michael Doughtery may be able to provide lodging so I can return to Coastine and you can figure out how to pay.

.
Without Coastline, I would have to say you have succeeded in fully destroying my life.  I know you don’t care, Shane Reideman made that very clear last fall when he called and asked me, “Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”
.
.
So, are we going to mediate with Judge Siemers?  I understand he is the only Judge who can deal with a case of this complexity?
.
If I’m not going back to Coastline, we can mediate with Judge Simers any time.  Looks like I have the rest of my shortened life span to fool with Workers Compensation, and perhaps make a difference to my fellow Americans.  If not, I die trying, huh? (Shane, happy now?)
.
I told the intermediary that I don’t fly,[radiation levels way too high, if you read the news] but I could drive to SFO (would need a rental car, per diem, and lodging) but that would be my compromise, or perhaps the Judge come to Los Angeles.  His CV is outstanding.  I might be able to trust him.
.
I need the CNA list of what has been paid to me.  I’m almost out of time to appeal their demand for a return of more money than even they gave me.  They have edited their calculations a few times. Le’s find out where that allegedly monthly payment of approximately $4,000 since May 2014 has been diverted to? (Shane, is that the type of fraud your department handles??)  Would you believe they even sent the initial retro-pay to a dead back account, even though my SSA retirement money had been coming to a different account for over a year?  The Treasury agent found that of extreme interest.
.
OK, let me know where we are.
.
Have a great day, and “Dodge those Rads – It’s Dangerous Out There!”
Sincerely,
LINDA AYRES, IN PRO PER
WWID 415287
go save yourself from the zombies .

ps… So, if the below is true, then there is some validity to the CNA rest and rest and rest and rest and wait and wait and wait approach to ‘treating’ a traumatic brain injury for more than 3 years 7 months, huh?  No wonder I wake up ready to take on the world for the first hour or two of the day.!  Thanks guys and gals!

.
C’mon, I want out of WorkComp, I want the 15% legal fees to be donated to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Foundation, and I want a reasonable settlement to enable me to forget I ever crossed paths with any of you  Oh, yes, I want some sort of restitution program by Wyndham/CNA/Grancell to ensure they never have the opportunity to harm another injured worker like this again.   Maybe I can be on the Board of Directors of such an organization.
.
Stewart, can you have someone look into setting something like that up?  Thanks.  No rush, looks like we’re going no where toward settlement, so there’s time…. since no treatment cut my life span by more than the 8 initials years estimated by the Brain Injury Association of America, looks like we have maybe another 10 or 15 to use the media to make a difference in America?  We’ll, let’s try.  COUNT ON ME to do my part!
.
Have a great day, Everybody.  I have no place to be…oh ohhhhhhhhhh…. the piano tuner is coming today.  I read that playing the piano is supposed to help with brain recovery so as Stewart and Fred know, I bought a piano last year, or maybe 2013, I don’t remember.  I didn’t realize, at the time, I had to learn to play it for it to be effective.  A local piano teacher had me is some very simple VERY SIMPLE VERY SMALL CHILDREN’S BOOK.  She was kind, but aghast at my cognitive impairments.  Most of the kids she teaches start with two very simple books.  We had to break it down to just one book for me.  I guess if I don’t really get to return to Coastline, piano lessons are back on the agenda.
.
Fred, wanna pay for them?  There’s also a company called LearningRx…  There’s help out there for people with brain injuries, I just don’t know how Thomas Motamed can run an organization with people in the dark ages about something as simple as NEURO-SCIENCE.  He takes in $10.7 million plus a year for harming people like me? Yecccch.   At least at Grancell, peeps get “Bagel Fridays” and at Wyndham, well, if you’re on the A-list, you get credit-worthy tours.  It all comes out in the wash, doesn’t it.
.
Ooooops, that was not intended to refer to ‘money laundering’ that seems to be a part of the workcomp biz models!  People tell me to refrain from slinging around words like felony fraud, RICO, corruption….   I don’t swear half as much as I used to…swearing is another consequence of brain injuries.  Shane, remember how I ended our Fall 2014 conversation, when you asked, “Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”  Yeah, that F**k YOU! was a knee jerk reaction due to TBI.

Ask About Brain Injury and WorkComp Survival Now 

Open Letter to CAAA Members — Why you cause such harm to Injured Workers? You no make enough money?

Years ago I asked an ol’ Sicilian Godfather type character, “Will you tell me, please, what is the secret to making lots of money?”  He said, “I will tell you.  It is very simple.  You find a need, then you fill it.”

What I have discovered about the majority of the members of the California Applicant Attorney’s Association membership is that they are generally burnt out, angry, disgruntled, overworked, screwed out of a decent wage by the chicanery of the Defense firms, and the end result is more casualties in the American Work Force. I’ve talked with plenty of you, from here to Northern California.  Most of you have been polite and cordial, but compassion is a rare quality in your ilk, isn’t it?

In my case, people say, ‘Oh.  She had 4 attorneys.  She must be hard to work with.’  BLAME THE VICTIM, THAT’S HOW YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?

Because the majority of CAAA attorneys seem impotent in the Art of Negotiation, and seem to feel condemned to working for what probably figures out to be about $10.00 an hour?   The end result is badly managed work comp cases, workers that don’t get medical care, and as one of the four retained and dismissed in my case advised:

“Most of my clients don’t get medical care, they lose their jobs and their homes; it’s just how it is.”  

That one attempted to coerce me to accept a premature settlement offer for a 1/9/12 brain injury for the ol’ $100,000, less legal fees, in November 2012, without benefit of having seen the specialist doctors recommended repeatedly, and denied not by UR but by the adjuster and the defense counsel.

.

He advised that, “Nobody will believe you have a brain injury. Work comp is a small community….”   I told him I was injured not stupid and that if nobody would believe it  was only because he didn’t do his job and get me to brain injury doctors, as repeatedly recommended by all the evaluating doctors I had been sent to.  How much money did the approximately 40 evaluating doctors plus CorVel & Maximus peeps make off my life so far?  How much do the defense attorneys make by continuously harming me?  And how about those adjusters and their fraud department that backs them up?

I’ve spent close to $50,000 on medical expenses trying to Survive WorkComp, and to clean up the legal messes CREATED BY YOUR MEMBERS, and have lost professional credentials and earning capacity, and I haven’t worked since 1/9/12.  Just because I can type doesn’t mean my brain injury healed on the rest and wait and wait and wait and wait CNA plan.

Stephen Hawking

If CAAA members learned a bit about negotiations, they might find it reasonable to find alternatives to scavenger, bottom feeder type holds with liens when prior counsel has done nothing but harm the injured worker by doing a poor job, or no job at all.

One  attorney’s I retained, when I advised his office they were being retained because the defense has a nasty pattern and practice of omitting hundreds of pages of medical records with intent (and success) to deny medical care, I was assured I would not be sent to any evaluations until the matter was resolved.  Was that ever a whopper, committed by non-supervised “case manager’ practicing law without a license, another pattern similar to the QME/AME  doctor reports written not by the doctors, but by the non-medical staff.

y u no see lies so obvious lies

Then, in writing, he battered me and accused me of desperately needing mental health care, and arrogantly stated that “There is no conspiracy to omit medical records in your case.”  He sent me to a very dubious AME eval, without medical records, and I am still paying for his incompetence.  By the way, it took nearly 8 hours in Court to get the Judge to order the Defense to send the omitted records to the two involved doctors (of the time) and to request a supplemental report.  Well, she sent them all right, not separately, not identified, but just in a new disorganized box and suggested the doctor find them and see if they made any difference in the conclusions. Then she did it again with the next QME, in December 2013. That’s 2 attorneys and highlights of their arrogance and incompetence.

The first one hardly counts, as it was not an attorney at all, it was a 60 second meet and greet with the attorney, then turned over to the Office Manager, who chanted, “There is no psych component to a WorkComp case” and promptly (next day) had me scheduled with an Orthopedic Surgeon on El Paseo in Palm Desert — FOR A BRAIN INJURY.   I got lost trying to find the front door, and entered through the employee entrance in the back — nobody but me found that odd.    The last one, rather than read the files I sent, and deal with the mess created by #3, merely agreed to yet another Orthopedic evaluation in late 2013.

Primary treating doctor has been an Orthopedic Surgeon (from 2/2013 through 12/2014 — I have had NO PTP since 12/2014—hardly matters, as there has been little-to-no care, just excessive evaluation upon evaluation, in true WorkComp Gravy Train fashion.

That’s 4 attorneys — #1 for 30 days in 2012, #2 for 9 months in 2012, #3 for 90 days in 2013 and #4 for 45 days in 2013/2014.  When I have asked them to release their liens so that I can find an attorney to help me, they just say no.

The office of #3, in an attempt to console me, said, “Oh, it makes no difference to you that he won’t release the lien  You get the same in any event.  It doesn’t matter if you have 1 or 5 or 10 attorneys, they divide up the 15%.”  I said, but you don’t understand, each of the 4 did more harm to me than the other, and I have a brain injury, and I can’t figure this crap out, there’s no integrity, fraud is NOT prosecuted, and the defense just makes stuff up and the WCAB supports it, and I can’t find competent counsel to represent me.

I’ve been told everything from “there’s no money in it” “previous attorneys didn’t do their job”  “the medical records were not properly developed” “there’s too much fraud—it’s over my head” “you’ve already had 1 attorney”  “you’ve already had 2 attorneys”  “you’ve already had 3 attorneys”  “you’ve already have 4 attorneys”  “nobody will be #5”

I asked one Judge to authorize me to pay someone hourly to help me. I can’t even find legal aid or a paralegal to help me. It seems that the WorkComp rackets have everything locked down.  There are even federally funded brain injury advocacy groups THAT REFUSE TO HELP AN AMERICAN WITH BRAIN INJURY IF THE INJURY HAPPENED AT WORK!

I have a brain injury plus it’s work comp.  The Information and Assistance office has clearly given me erroneous information SINCE FIRST MEETING IN 2012, and badgered me, abused me, violated ADA and civil rights,  and made it quite whose side she works for.  In Injured Worker circles, the experience of most I & A Officers is the same, so I don’t take it personally.  But, know that when you tell injured workers to see the I & A officer, you’re condemning them to more harm, and your credibility is further reduced.

THE BRAIN INJURY HANDBOOK

WHAT IS A SOLUTION?

I tell you this because it’s identifying a need, that you can fill, and I can only scream about.  Your industry vendors are even afraid to work with/for an Injured Worker, in Pro Per.  Your industry doctors, playing hot shot, even return properly served medical records and threaten to sue an injured worker for daring to properly send such documents. Your vendors make it clear that they only take directions from “the adjuster” or  “The Defense”.

I even asked at WCAB for a list of possible attorneys in 2013.  I found one who answered his own phone.  Trouble is, he no longer works for injured workers.  He works for The Defense.  I got quiet and asked, “Tell me, why did you go to the Dark Side?”” He got quiet and said, “Because that’s where the money is.”

So, for starters, if you are approached by an injured worker with a brain injury, if you know nothing about brain injury, give them immediately a letter of non-engagement, and a referral if you can.

Then, set up some training sessions for your members for negotiations, and start with studies of Psychopaths…ie. DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATH.  It will help your members understand the Defense, and may reveal similar traits that may cause them to just head over to the Dark Side.

Watch it again, and tell your friends and neighbors.

Then, in each of your offices, set up an InProPer division, or something similar, with a Paralegal component, and an hourly fee, with a provision to take over the case when attorney liens are withdrawn.

DO SOMETHING TO HELP CLEAN UP THE MESS THAT YOUR INCOMPETENT COLLEAGUES CREATE, AND GET THEIR FANGS OUT OF THE LIENS THAT RESULT TO NOTHING FOR ANYBODY.

OH YEAH, OPEN YOUR FANCY CONFERENCES TO INJURED WORKERS, PARTICULARLY YOUR EXHIBIT HALLS.  IF YOU WON’T REPRESENT US, HELP US FIND THE RESOURCES TO REPRESENT OURSELVES.

Do some client follow up…… you may find gross dissatisfaction with your industry by injured workers and doctors.  You can blame injured workers all day long for your own shortcomings, but…in the end, you know the truth.

I will never forget the attorney who called me back around 8 o’clock one evening, screaming and swearing that he was working so late, and when I explained my case, to the best of my abilities, he called me “one of those work comp pariahs” and that he knew the defense counsel.  He assured me that ‘fraud’ was not a possibility; “incompetence, yes, but she is not capable of fraud”…. (That was his opinion; evidence points in the other direction.)

GIVE IT SOME THOUGHT…… IF YOU CAN’T HELP INJURED WORKERS, EITHER FIND SOME WAYS TO HELP THE IN PRO PER POPULATION, OR BE ASSURED, WE WILL DO ALL WE CAN TO GET YOU OUT OF THE EQUATIONS TOTALLY, and FIND WAYS TO HOLD YOU AND YOURS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE HARM YOU CAUSE TO THE INJURED WORKER POPULATIONS IN CALIFORNIA, AND YOUR COLLEAGUES IN ALL STATES OF THE UNION.

CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

LIONS  SURROUND YOURSELF    find the others

Look for the In Pro Per OBJECTION TO A FRIVOLOUS ORDER TO COMPEL ……COMING UP THIS WEEK….

INJURED WORKERS DEMAND DOCTORS AND LAWYERS TRIALS?!

Few studies discuss the true causes of the absolute failures of the Grand Bargain, known by  injured workers as the Grand Work Comp Fraud.

As evidenced at Doctor’s Trials of Nuremberg, when doctors are criminals, there are grave social problems. When the criminal activities of doctors are supported and protected by criminal lawyers, the problems are compounded for all concerned. 

Work comp insurance systems are a mega billion dollar crime syndicate, fleecing, maiming,  torturing injured workers, causing permanent disabilities and premature deaths for injured workers  and reaping extreme profits for the sonderkommando involved.

No, we don’t need more studies. All involved know the truths of the atrocities. But, if more studies are desired, begin to study how cops and firefighters are tortured and abused by the WorkCompsters when injured on the job.

Think harder and include the plight of injured veterans, being denied medically necessary treatments and “incapcitation pay”  while self righteous  and arrogant psychopaths allege the horror stories are exceptions rather than the rules of the work comp killing games. 

When doctors and lawyers and judges and their ilk breach oaths of office…  take heart in knowing there are others who take their Oath seriously,

…and will responsibly honor Oath before orders.

Start the 21st Century Doctors and Lawyers Trials in America and Canada and UK.  Hold the multinational crime syndicate’s participants accountable for the extermination practices of Workers Compensation Grand Fraud. . . Prepare the gallows.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 8,000 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.
