How? Have untrained staff, incapable of handling a work place injury, unable to offer medical support, transportation to an emergency room, or call 911. Ensure that staff do not know how to complete a DWC-1 form, know nothing about alleged MPN-Provider Networks, never send a get well card and never inquire over the years of denied medical care how the employee is doing; above all, never extend a get well wish, and threaten abled working staff to NEVER SPEAK TO AN INJURED WORKER, under any circumstances. Refer always to HR.
Then, hope for a newbie Adjuster who can “just follow orders” and rely upon EAP referred doctors for referrals to other specialists. Hope that adjuster seriously follows PLAY BOOK that apparently deems it necessary to terminate all benefits upon diagnosis of serious injury, including Brain Injury and commence acts of emotional, mental and financial terrorism.
Hope for a designated defense counsel that will go to any means necessary to “win the case” with plenty of Court time and other billable hours on matters related to legal chicanery and obfuscation of facts. When both are replaced after a few years, hope for seasoned, jaded professionals without hearts or souls. Higher on the food chain, the more intense the outcomes.
Count on AME/QME/IMR doctor reports written by non-medical staff, signed by industry leased/owned professionals for the big bucks, and know that legitimate doctors will also be cheated out of agreed upon fees and more.
Hope for a Risk Management team to successfully shift all risk and cost burdens to State and Federal agencies, without fear or caution. If necessary, hope for a fraud unit that will call injured workers and ask, “So tell me, ______, when ARE you going to die?”
Count on total violation of Civil Rights—-because WorkCompsters appear to be above the law, with no regard or respect for the Constitution of these United States of America and callous disregard for life and liberty.
Subject: VOICE MAIL RE: LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE CNA 33269102WE – COASTLINE LODGING, SSA RECORD OF PAYMENTS, MEDIATION (Fred Sachs voice mail)
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!”
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.
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.
