If you prefer sharing with professionals that are funded and staffed, see below for link to ProPublica ongoing Workers Compensation investigative reporting. Tell Michael and friends that “WorkCompLinda sent me! You cool?”
[Draw your own conclusions and keep copies of everything you share and if you don’t have your own blog yet, let’s get right to it.]
Watch out for those pretending to give a hoot about you and your story…. if they can offer no suggestions for actions, that should be a red flag to you. If they discourage you at every step you take, that should be a red flag to you.
Even in some injured worker group I have seen people try to discourage people from taking action, complaining that nothing has worked for them over the years. Perhaps it’s a content and strategy issue?
If they destroy every opportunity to incite communications and change, THAT SHOULD BE BELLS AND WHISTLES AND A RED FLAG TO YOU.
Beware of people ‘out there’ and ‘in here’ who will attempt to discourage you from saving your own life and finding way to get out of the system.
If it talks like a troll, acts like a troll..it’s probably A TROLL.
Some are so full of themselves, that they knowingly destroy open communications with, for example, the Investigative Journalists of ProPublica and NPR, as well as TV investigative journalists.
Sadly, I included a such few people in some private LinkedIn threads with such reporters in hopes of forging links of further communications.
Study this, and discuss the entire series in your groups and at your places of worship:
Those certain initially referenced individuals destroyed the opportunity for meaningful interaction with those professionals AGAIN with insane rants, totally off topic, and concluded with saying they were going to seek legal action against me for inviting people to share their workcomp story with me without having provided a complete business plan on how I would be able to sort the stories, get them rendered anonymous, edited, published and shared around the globe.
Not all stories submitted would make the cut, but as previously stated, all stories are being prayerfully and conscientiously considered while I seek experts to help put a book together. .
In light of these current threats — the eBook goes on the back burner till I feel like dealing with it again. WorkComp strugles are for the long haul… if you have shared your story with WorkCompLinda, be assured, it is safe. If you haven’t and want to, take a break and answer the questions.
The questions are to guide the story and like one of the ProPublica Reporters said on a podcast… it’s a real drag to do injured workers stories because they go on and on and on and make little sense. Part of that is surely consequences of being a POW and some Stockholm Syndrome.
It, however, IS NOT CONDUCIVE TO INCREASING COMMUNITY AWARENESS.
Only a troll would make such threats and use a professional thread to disparage me, in my humble opinion, and send private messages about how cool it is when industry bloggers demean and disparage injured workers…yet they speak the truth on some other things.
[Refer back to the 25 Rules of Disinformation and the 8 Traits of Disinformationists.]
Only a troll member would back it up, and make all injured workers look like drug addicted incoherent idiots. Can’t fix stupid, truly you cannot.
The funniest part is, their submitted stories made as little sense as their destructive off-topic rants on the threads.
So, my story is already out there,and because of that, in part, the parties in my case “reached resolution subject to a confidentiality agreement”
Anybody interested in Freedom and actions to take toward a similar outcome, I will help if I can help.
Let me know when you set up your blog, and we’ll go from there. I can show you how to tell your own story on your own blog, and you don’t have to ask anybody for permission to do this or that.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE. BE YOUR OWN HERO. TRUST NO ONE. THIS IS A WAR ON WORKERS.
KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE AND KEEP YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER.
It’s a loss for all of us, and I take full responsibility for having not have the good sense to leave them out of the conversations.
I truly believed they had Injured Worker’s interests at heart, and some people, sadly, are just too damaged by the system, or they are simply paid trolls. It doesn’t really matter which they are—their results are the same.
I was mistaken about DePaolo and CompLaude Awards, too.
PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION. #BoycottCompLaude 2016!
The situations are self-correcting now.
On the brighter side, the parties involved in the thread attack must have forgotten the audience of the threads, so now they are widely known by a small group of investigative reports as another ‘crazed attacker’ of yours truly. Funny how karma works, huh? Give ’em enough rope and they….
“WITHOUT A BLOG AND A DATABASE INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED AND
UNPROTECTED IN THE WAR ON WORKERS.”
The internet is full of trolls. Some are smart, some are not so smart. They all have one objective and that is to destroy constructive threads, discourage real change, and to WASTE YOUR TIME.
ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP CORRUPTION, MISTAKES, SONDERKOMMANDO, GRAVY TRAIN WRECKS AND MORE HERE….
After reviewing the list of doctors/providers, you may be ‘baffled, puzzled, confused and perplexed’ and asked, “WHAT TREATMENTS DID THIS INJURED WORKER RECEIVE, AND HOW MANY THOUSAND AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WERE SPENT ON EVALUATIONS THAT DID NOT RESULT IN AUTHORIZATION FOR HOW MUCH MEDICALLY APPROPRIATE CARE? FOLLOW THE MONEY. ALWAYS FOR THE MONEY.
If YOU make it to the “NAUGHTY LIST” all thanks go to CNA and defense firm, Grancell Stander et al, and of course, to Wyndham Worldwide for corporate irresponsibility and callous disregard for the life of an injured worker, in a serious breach of human right and ethics, extreme discrimination of injured workers with disabilities, not excluding age and gender discrimination issues. They could have made a difference. They chose not to. Bummer.
Will someone let DIR Director Christine Baker know what happens where there are only illegitimate practices and legal chicanery in brain injury cases? Everybody planning to watch #Concussion?
Find Physiatrists and Neuropsychologists and their inter-disciplinary teams for helping Injured Workers with brain injuries, and stop relying on Orthopedic Surgeons who admittedly know little to nothing about brain injuries, although along with chiropractors who are the first doctors often seen after a slip and fall or foot ball injury or car crash. Most experts will not play the killing games of Workers Compensation, as they took an OATH TO DO NO HARM. Did you?
Also, encourage investigations into who writes these regurgitations called reports, without benefit of legitimate medical evaluations, and how much money is wasted. Investigate why/how defense firms can have the pattern and practice omission of hundreds of pages of medical records with intent to deny medical care.
Governor Brown, could you kindly have the Attorney General Investigations of corruption at the highest levels of Workers Compensation, and encourage Governors across the USA to do like-wise, and dispatch the National Guard to protect injured workers from these WorkCompsters? The FBI stands ready to help and maybe even the District Attorneys. Thanks a bunch!

CORVEL TEAM SINCE 2013, 3D Practices — They even harm Cops, right Mayor Betsy? Did the Unions get to the bottom of the bad behavior by Corvel out in Ft. Worth yet? You should see how Injured Cops and Firefighters are treated in California. Shameful, indeed! Reams of Denials via CorVel for ADJ8181903! (Chronoloical Order, 2013 to present….notice a pattern of expertise of denying parties?) CorVel reports tend to be convoluted regurgitations of disorganized and incomplete medical records, violations of HIPPA rights, and inappropriate reviewers for types of injuries. Readers may opine that the submitting RNs wrote the reports, poorly and incoherently, for the most part.

In the observed slip and fall backwards on ice by Wyndham Worldwide Vacation Ownership Sales Executive Linda Ayres on 1/9/12, the following people have been involved in the case, evaluations and determinations of care for a well diagnosed concussion/traumatic brain injury/closed head injury/ptsd and more. Summary statements in this blog: Surviving Work Comp — Just Do It!
Orders are face to face medical exams for the first set of chronological providers, separated by year by an underline….starting in 2012. (Blatant disregard of ACOEM/MTUS guidelines, but that’s for another blog.) Second set are CorVel and Maximus regurgitation reports, apparently written by RNs or others and signed by a variety of doctors, citing guidelines for necessary treatment, and somehow denying it anyway. Plenty of expensive bla bla bla. DO THE MATH. FOLLOW THE MONEY. ASK MORE QUESTIONS?
For now, let’s just make the list. Is your name on it? “Let’s get started.” Remember, all of these people have made money for seeing/knowing the Injured Worker. Did they all provide “care” or “medical treatment”?
In contrast, Injured Worker was denied benefits, denied medical care, forced to file for welfare with Social Services and rely on the charity of friends and the Salvation Army—-proving that with Wyndham Timeshare, there are “No Free Gifts” and there is blatant and callous disregard for lives of injured workers and customers. A friend shared this link with more news on how Wyndham Worldwide behaves in the global marketplace.
While WCAB seems to deem “evaluation after evaluation after evaluation” as evidence of InjuredWorkers receiving medical care, the Information and Assistance Officer, last resort for help for unrepresented Injured Workers, is not a doctor, nor a lawyer, and practice without those licenses is questionable indeed.
The dubiousness appears compounded when good doctors properly make legitimate and conservative recommendations for immediate and necessary care, only to have the recommendations denied by attorneys and adjusters in 2012, then, aided and abetted by Team CorVel. Advising an Injured Worker to “have better control” of counsel when represented is a joke—if CAAA can’t police their own members, how can a Worker with a Brain Injury be expected to know when representation proves to be totally incompetent, dangerous, and worse?
CAB Commissioners and DIR seem complicit in the Gravy Train, at least in this case, which so many Super Lawyers indicate is ‘just how it is’ — happens to everyone — very common case, or maybe they just don’t know. More on attorneys in another blog.
Follow this blog for more details that everybody knows but has kept the dirty secrets behind closed doors, while American workers and taxpayers pay and pay and pay—-with life, liberty and justice for none attacked by the Workers Compensation maiming killing brigades.
By the time you finish reading this blog, you will have a better idea of why Workers Compensation Survivors call it a GRAVY TRAIN WRECK. (Some of these doctors were paid by CNA, some were paid by CIGNA, some were paid by the Injured Worker (unreimbursed medical expenses and miles to date exceed $43,300 – failures to receive adequate treatment have caused permanent and irreparable damage to IW.
Without WorkersCompensation, legitimate insurance would have facilitated care that would have been immediate, expert, reasonable, beneficial and IW may have returned to work within months, back in 2012. Without care, Injured Worker has been advised to make plans for Assisted Living in light of risk of dementia, with a need for personal assistance now. Thanks WorkCompsters!
