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 

Are Lawyers the Nouveau Sonderkommando for WorkCompsters?

#WorkCompsters Dispute Location of Body Part known as BRAIN? D’oh
Want a peak into the world of a ‪#WorkComp #‎Brain‬ Injury Survivor?

IMG_0608

Thanks ‪#‎Wyndham‬, ‪#‎Grancell‬, and ‪#‎CNA‬, and all the #WCAB peeps and ‪#‎CAAA‬ lawyers who couldn’t/wouldn’t help me! @ProPublica

tbi and ice

[New TBI Survivor asks if anyone ever has challenges getting groceries home after shopping diligently…]

Linda: Wait till you start using lists, and really focus on tasks at hand…then get everything on the list and leave a bag or two of paid groceries in the cart and wonder for hours where the stuff is that was checked off on the list…. unsure emoticon

Or when you splurge on some great hair products and can’t find them to save your life…. for months, then find them in a cupboard where they don’t belong… gasp emoticon …. Welcome to the World of Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors….!

Have you seen a Speech Therapist yet? Occupational Therapist?

They helped me see that I can easily do tasks with TWO – STEPS. That third step can really kick butt…. like making coffee: 1) put coffee in maker 2) turn pot on 3) wonder why coffee is spilling all over the counter; find pot in dishwasher; try again; 1) put fresh dry coffee in maker; put pot in maker 3) wonder why coffee isn’t done yet….. unsure emoticon

Life with TBI is so

[ Another new TBI Survivor asks if anybody else sleeps all the time ]

LINDA: I slept most of the first year. COGNITIVE FATIGUE is a real butt kicker. Sometimes after a long drive to a doctor’s evaluation, I had to find a safe shopping center to park and rest. Sometimes I still have to find a safe place to nap while travelling here and there. I carry a blankie. unsure emoticon

One idiot neurologist actually wanted me to drive 100 miles each way to his office WITHOUT SLEEP and only HIS office with HIS technician for a ‘sleep deprived EEG’ that second month.

Wow, I told the lawyer I was injured not stupid, and requested a smarter neurologist. The response? Termination of benefits, and begin of the ‘kicking to the curb.’ ‘Curb kicking’ went into full motion, with other bullying and terrorism practices by ‘the Defense’ upon clear diagnosis of brain injury, and hasn’t stopped yet; ongoing since January 9, 2012. Yeah, in America! Ain’t that awful.

WorkCompsters apparently only treat brain injury in California with the ‘rest and wait and wait and wait and wait till you’re kicked to the curb, they hope you die’ program.

Wyndham has paid the big premiums for that sort of WorkComp Insurance Policy for it’s injured workers from CNA aka America’s Casualty insurance firm. It’s pretty similar in other states and nations. Same crowd of #WorkCompsters?

tbi you aint gullible

My friend and teacher, Michelle Wild, just recently released an Apple app for the brain injured population. It is called Manage My Fatigue.  YOU could write a great article about Michelle Wild and her 25 plus years of work helping people with brain injuries develop compensatory strategies… She also has a website called making cognitive connections… I think the address is ID4theweb.com. There is a wealth of information there… Worth checking out.

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

My date of injury was January 9th 2012… Living without much working memory… is another butt kicker… as is the rule about ’embrace the new you’… Easier said than done. ☆♡◇☆♡◇☆ #InjuredWorkersUniting #SilentNoMore

“Churn, Baby Churn” Chant of WorkComp Defense Firms in America.

“There is NO EXCUSE for the #WorkComp Atrocities in America”

but we might be on to an explanation…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

flag distress signal

WorkComp Law….and Atrocities…

AS THE FILE CHURNS, Wyndham Sleeps and CNA asks IW:

“…when ARE you going to die?”

Primary Treating Physician for Ayres vs. Wyndham et al is an Orthopedic Surgeon designated as PTP for BRAIN INJURY CASE, because the alleged MPN Network of CNA is apparently losing swathes of doctors for non-payment and ridiculous handling of claims, they have no brain injury experts and damages caused by CNA by refusals to provide medically necessary treatments.

CNA now relies heavily on Corvel Corporation orthopedic surgeons and clinical psychologists to deny brain injury care based on false and incomplete medical evidence, and lack of expertise  in the brain department.  People complain about that Maximus IMR Gang?  …..Corvel says, ‘let them all eat cake!’ as their nurses and sonders churn out denials like they were going out of business.  The Corvel ‘doctors’ seem to have fangs in the Social Security denial system too?

Most of the CNA leased/owned independent doctors don’t even know that the brain is a body part located in the head, and one of their neurologists says ‘take an over the counter analgesic’ and their other neurologist says, ‘Look, you didn’t get any medical care the first two years, you’re already over 35, nothing will help you now.  Go for a walk, get skinny, use the neuro-optometric theraputic lenses they wouldn’t pay for, but you did, and stop whining about vision and auditory impairments.’

Some real doctors just walk away from the #WorkComp Scams, some stay in it, slugging it out on behalf of injured workers, and others just ride the Dinner Car of the #WorkCompGravy Trains.

Nearly every single request for expert treatment for brain injury by the PTPs have been denied, first by non-doctors, Kim Mall, Attorney for Grancell, then by Daniel Elliott, Adjuster for CNA aka American Casualty.  Remember remember, Wyndham Worldwide had (and probably still has) no standard practice for injured workers other than handing them an incomplete DWC-1 form with a shrug and “See any doctor that accepts work comp insurance” with the ‘time-share-salute’.

COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM  NEWPORT BEACH —http://www.coastline.edu/students/students-with-disabilities/acquired-brain-injury/

COASTLINE FOUNDATION http://www.coastline.edu/community/foundation/

The Coastline Foundation continually searches for new and innovative ways to serve the Coastline community. Coastline Community College is a campus without walls, and the Coastline Foundation (like its parent college) knows no barriers. Contact the Foundation at foundation@coastline.edu or call (714) 241-6154.

LIFE HAPPENS…. They train the trainers! The DOD seeks their expertise.  Their ‘Graduates” sing their praises!  Compensatory Strategies help many Brain Injury Survivors return to life; sadly, not all are so fortunate.  Not everybody survives…..

 

The Evaluation [QME]  by Dr. Jeffrey Holmes, Orthopedic Surgeon, has been aborted again, and to be rescheduled in December, after spending nearly 70 minutes at the appointed time, confirming medical records and sorting through confusion.  It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Holmes and his kind and gracious staff.  Harvard men can have manners, yes?

As injured worker was quite clear that the good doctor was being invited by Defense to participate in an on-going fraudulent denial of medical treatment scam, and that he deserved to have all the facts so that he could make a legitimate evaluation of the right shoulder injury and other orthopedic challenges.

2012 medical records and 2012 attempt to coerce premature settlement by Defense clearly referenced right shoulder injury, and current hard-fought for Acupuncture has been for the ‘right shoulder only’ and they tried to tell the acupuncturist treatments were not to be used on the brain.  D’oh!

(Acupuncture is a whole-body system of treatment, most helpful to some brain injured patients.) The Defense postion letter started out with lies, that just got more egregious, and current defense counsel stated he saw no reason to change anything in Kim’s letter.  Birds of Feather poop together?

Current PTP was successful in getting 6 physical therapy sessions authorized in Spring 2013, for a Winter 2012 injury. Then an MRI in Summer 2013 of the shoulder was authorized, determining a need for surgery and a severe shoulder rotator cuff tear.  It took a Court Order to get appointments scheduled for Physical Therapy and Acupuncture in 2013. Is that right use of Judge’s time?

Defense attorney Kim Mall (Grancell-Corona) then indicated that the adjuster was wrong, there would be no further evaluation because it was not an accepted body part.  She did not want to hear that the adjuster was trying to do the right thing.  She squashed it, and no doubt billed on.

 

Work Comp  TBI Wyndham and YOU

Several days in front of a WorkComp Riverside Judge, to deal with issues of omissions of medical records—more than 300 pages left out for 3 doctor reports, so those doctors relied on instruction from the defense, based on their egregiously flawed reports, QME/AME/and 2nd Consult.

 

Conveniently, those industry leased/owned doctors moved the reported date of injury on some reports a year forward, to 2013, using medical evidence of 2012 to ‘support’ fraudulent claims of ‘pre-existing’ symptoms such as dysfluent speech, impaired cognitive abilities, inability to recognize people, auditory and visual processing….. One made a correction to the date when confronted, but not to the false opinings, or his meds were off too.

wpid-img_20141113_185828.jpg

No worries, WorkComp Courts REFUSE TO HEAR COMPLAINTS ABOUT ATTORNEY/PROVIDER FRAUD, AND SO DOES THE COMMISSION IN CALIFORNIA.  DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS TOO BUSY? CAAA suggests injured worker keeps on looking for a competent legal firm to represent.

DEFENSE FIRM REFUSES TO MEDIATTE, SAYS THE CASE IS “not ripe”… (i.e. Injured worker is still breathing???)

DEFENSE FIRM REFUSES TO PROPERLY PROCESS MEDICAL EXPENSES REIMBURSEMENT REQUESTS FOR NEARLY $30,000, AND INSURANCE CARRIER IS AWARDED $16,000 BONUS BY STATE OF CALIFORNIA – EDD — APPARENTLY OUT OF GENERAL TAXPAYER FUNDS…FOR REFUSAL BY CARRIER TO PAY TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY BENEFITS IN YEAR 1 AND 2 OF INJURY…. Perhaps the WorkComp AUDIT UNIT will do their job and suprise all stakeholders with fines and penalties.

THE INJURED WORKER HAS NOT YET RETURNED TO WORK…. WYNDHAM CONTINUES TO REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE INTERACTIVE PROCESSES OF #FEHA, AND THE DEFENSE FIRM CONTINUES TO OBFUSCATE TRUTH…SENDING QME DOCTORS BUNDLES OF DISORGANIZED FILES, THAT SEVERAL HAVE BILLED 7-8 HOURS TO “organize” prior to review, and generally, those doctors just have their “staff” write a report following guidelines of defense counsel, fraudulent misrepresentations and all.

These doctors are not apparently accustomed to an injured worker fighting for survival without a lawyer—two threatend to sue for ‘harassment’ when omitted records were properly served with requests for supplement reports reflecting further medical evidence.  Several Court hours were wasted (but billed by Defense firm?.)…. to sort out the missing records.

The file was pulled from Kim Mall, and given to Stewart Reubens, in Grancell-Novato office.  Stewart doesn’t like to read.  His office must be full of rubber stamps?

wc CLAIM DENIED

Date of injury was 1/9/12, despite repeated requests for a brain injury experts—a Physicist, a Neurologist with Brain Injury Expertise, A Neuro-Psychologist, to manage an INTERDISCIPLINARY TEAM OF EXPERTS — Speech Therapy with Cognitive Remediation, Occupational Therapy, Neuro-Vision Therapy, Physical Therapy — TO TREAT A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY CAUSED BY A WITNESSED SLIP AND FALL BACKWARDS AT THE WORLDMARK BY WYNDHM BIG BEAR RESORT ON 1/9/12…..

What can break the impact of a fall backwards besides the SKULL?   See picture for help with that question.  Hint: THE SKULL.  2ND HINT: Where is the brain located?

tbi and icelinda-ayres-says-join-me-on-twitter and linked in lindaayres311

Evaluations Evaluations Evaluations…. and #WorkComp Defense now wants MORE EVALUATIONS?!!! For how many more years??

The recent Ortho Eval was aborted again, due to file obfuscation by Defense Firm, to be rescheduled.

While Grancell refuses to honor ADA request for electronic communications, it seems that Stewart sent a letter recently requesting yet another neuro-psychologist evaluation (after DIR told him NO once more) and he is apparently clue-less that such testing cannot be done more often than every 7-9 months, or ‘practice effect’ renders the results bastardized.  Or, maybe he does know that, as he knows such a battery of tests was done again in October 2014.   All results point to a traumatic brain injury, with requests for treatment.

Even the Grancell leased Forensic Psychiatrist wrote, ‘If there was evidence of a concussion from a slip and fall, injured worker would certainly be entitled to medical treatment….but there was not fall, no concussion, and it was probably just an epilepsy attack.”  D’oh! Doc off his meds that day?

Forensic Psychiatrist wrote 3 supplemental reports at the request of Grancell’s Kim Mall, each one more outrageous and egregiously fraudulent than the prior, until they decided to put the reports on the ‘do not regurgitate in summary’ instructions, and also asked to have the name and report dates removed from the Medical Index.  Invoking the 5th amendment might have been more efficient?  (He also suggested that if IW has civil rights complaints, she take it to The Hague.  He provided the direct line for the local DA to facilitate further complaints….THAT’S SCARY THAT HE HAD THAT NUMBER SO HANDY, HUH?  d’OH!  He refused to believe complaints had already been filed.)

'CHURN THAT BILL BABY

“I hear we are already 200k over our estimate—that’s Team DLA Piper!” wrote then-DLA Piper partner Erich P. Eisenegger in one email.

After another lawyer responded, noting that an attorney colleague, whose first name is Vince, had been added to the group working on the bankruptcy matter, then-DLA Piper attorney Christopher Thomson added his thoughts: “Now Vince has random people working full time on random research projects in standard ‘churn that bill, baby!’ mode,” wrote Thomson. “That bill shall know no limits.”

“Now Vince has random people working full time on random research projects in standard ‘churn that bill, baby!’ mode,” wrote Thomson. “That bill shall know no limits.”

Tinkerbell and opinions and insults

Oh goodness! That alleged ‪#‎WorkComp‬ “long time activists” gang says they are banning me and removing me from their email distributions lists forever, but gosh golly, they keep sending me emails saying they’re really gonnna do it now, and I better look out! D’oh.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO NOT WALK QUIETLY IN THIS OPEN AIR AUSCHWITZ….. AND ASK ABOUT THE WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS…..and where those box cars stop at the end of the line. https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/

Sadly, they either have Langley 401(k) accounts, have just blown a promotion for a failed attack on an injured worker, or are simply casualties of the #WorkComp Opiate Wars on Injured Workers. They couldn’t be working for CNA, could they? Naaaaaah….the timing and stupidity makes it plausible, but deniable.

Their “leaders” do seem to have long time insurance industry connections. Hmmmm. The attacks are text book out of The Rules of Disinformation and The 8 Traits of Disinformationists.

In any event, their mean spirited and non-sensical blastings are….insignificant in the greater scheme of things.

TriageNow, a WorkComp phone nurse group was recently stumbled upon and we suggested they contact Wyndham since Wyndham’s staff are clueless on how to handle a worker injury.  They are following on Twitter now. https://twitter.com/LindaAyres311
.
LinkedIn is proving to be a great place for outreach, and I keep making it to the top of the Wyndham stats. https://www.linkedin.com/in/lindaayres311  Maybe for YOUR level of investigative reporting, you can work in an interview with some Wyndham key executives?
.
Their top peeps are in New Jersey http://www.wyndhamworldwide.com/about-wyndham-worldwide/our-leadership  You or one of your colleagues could approach them with an angle that perhaps you can help solve their future work comp dilemmas and the bad will that will no doubt build.

Could I pretty please ask your opinion on some questions to ask of other injured workers?  What is it that YOU believe is needed to reach professionals in the work comp community, who are not party to the atrocities that are happening everyday, everywhere? Do you have a list of standard questions?
If you can’t, no worries, We’ll take another route, and thank you again for your consideration.
social networking
We will ask some of my friends and injured worker pals for their stories, and we will render them anonymous, so that they can be shared and explored without emotions. (see email thread below)
.

We (me and a few Injured Friends and Warriors) hope to have a new website up and running before the WorkComp Laude Awards Gala, and we would like to have a questionnaire Survey available to facilitate further communications.

Will YOU participate?

Comp Laude Awards  2014
One particular e-group of ‘radical’ and “outspoken” and “knowledgeable” injured workers deals with the unconstitutionality of WorkComp in California, and a variety of other whinings about the government collusion with the insurance company bad guys.  Kaiser, State, Sedgwick, CNA…a bunch of big names involved.  All have had poor experiences with InjuredWorker legal representation, much like my challenge with incompetent counsels.
 .
As we know, that saves no lives, and merely adds to profit margins for the few.  Many have been fighting in the system for 10-20 years.  Yikes, that’s unfathomable to me.  The moment I saw the real deal and got more of marbles back, the faster I wanted out.  Looks like that won’t be happening, so I will kick and scream and expose to expunge, till death do us part.
 .
When I told that particular e-group about the Comp Laude nomination as an Injured Worker, omg, the dirt started flinging, calling me an ‘industry hack’ and worse… Sadly, many have been in the “system” for 10-20+ years, and some seem to be casualties of the opiate drug wars conducted by work comp as well.
.go save yourself from the zombies
I had tried to have coffee with one (having had a lengthy phone conversation in the summer listening to the work comp sad tale, unable to get in a word edgewise).  I was going to see about extending an invitation to the 12/6/14 Gala, and omg, all hell broke lose….I won’t be in touch with them anymore, jeeeze! It was like dealing with defense counsels or I & A agents. Learned Helplessness, Institutionalization and being a “Victim” is apparently a real consequence of ‘doing time’ in WorkComp in America.
.
There are many injured workers groups on social media, quietly fighting for their lives.  Some not even telling their friends and neighbors of the horrors of fighting for basic medical care and basic temporary disability benefits or “incapacitation” benefits.  There is no reason to put up with suspected agents of disinformation; we injured workers have our hands full dealing with defense counsels, insurance companies, their owned doctors etc. and work comp judiciaries etc.

[They even accused me of not having a brain injury at all…. and made me wonder who THEY worked for…..I didn’t even read half of their emails…D’oh…. Talk about mean-spiritedness!   If I didn’t have a brain injury, there is no way I would be in this mess, imho.]
 .bill casey quote
DePaolo’s blogs are excellent, but the ‘fraud factors’ seem real hard to grasp, from an insider perspective.  It’s crystal clear as a “victim of WorkComp”…. I haven’t counted how many doctors have applauded my big mouth and said, “Somebody’s got to do it” as they eliminate injured workers from their portfolios.
 .
I changed my Orthopedic regular 45 day visit from December 5 so that I can be rested for the December 6th experience.  The doctor’s office was THRILLED to hear that I was nominated as a finalist for the CompLaude Awards.  She said, “Tell how how bad things are.  They need to hear someone.  Your case should have been gone a long time ago!”…. and she knows how hard they have fought to try to get me to a brain injury specialist.  They couldn’t even get me to a neurologist.  D’oh.
.
I thanked her and giggled and said, “I’m a finalist, but politically speaking, I don’t think they can dare to let me win.”….. But it is still an honor and opportunity, which I take seriously.
 .
Here’s the response I sent to that private injured worker e-group, in response to their hope that Ralph Nader will save them.  D’oh.   [They called it self-serving, so, it’s sort of a no-win situation dealing with hammered, drugged and chemically poisoned Prisoners of WorkComp….whew ]  Anyhow,
 .
If any of it strikes a chord and you want to share your thoughts informally to give it more structure, and more reach to your peeps, please send me an email or leave me a voice mail.  (and no, I won’t plaster your email all over the internet as I was morally required to do with the CNA question, “….Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”  
 .
I think CNA bought Wyndham some more legal challenges with that one…. seems to violate some EEOC Civil Rights laws that the Courts seem to be holding employers liable for bad deeds of their vendors.  I”m investigating further.)  ;D

Did any of you have a chance to see my piece in this blog and listen to the 3 minute audio of the dude from CNA insurance asking, among other things, “So, tell me Linda, when ARE you going to die?”. Yes, its recorded and all over social media.

See more here: http://lucyoccupy.com/

That conversation might be a civil suit for which my employer, WyndhamWorldwide, may be held culpable as well.

My whole story is in the blog, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains.http://askaboutworkerscompgavytrains.com/ see the blogs and then see the Resource page and the list of posts page.

Each of you are welcomed and encouraged to follow these blogs for updates.

I reached out to one of you recently to meet for coffee and I got a polite “can’t”… It wasn’t a social call.

Are you kidding me??! If y’all can’t bother to explore new opportunities, you’ll die whining.

Somebody else in this group said my posts may be pretty but they are useless. Fine. Block me.

WE are the Media Now. Ain’t nobody gonna help us, so we need to find new strategies.

WorkComp activism can be quite like “anti-nuke” activism……heavily infiltrated and hell bent on keeping people running in square circles, diefying paid mouth-pieces.

Re-read the common wisdom of “the 25 rules of disinformation” and the 8 traits of disinformationists”

Let me know if you get any insights or can share them with your friends and lawyers.

Stay tuned. More coming up, including but not limited to a new website.

If you are interested, send me a 500-700 words general summary of your story….date of injury, extent of injuries, all diagnosis, treatment, complications, pay, ever return to work, on social security, represented now? How many attorneys, prospects for the future. Your age at injury, and age now?
Gender? Overall health today? Better or worse?

Working? What needs to happen for return to work, if an option.

We want at least ten stories to start with. Include employer name and insurer, if you care to. First rounds may be more general and nation and ANONYMOUS.

Write a conclusion to finish this statement:

“The worst thing is ________________________.””What helped me most was:____________________________________””What I want now is:_____________________________________.””The non-psychopaths of the WorkComp industry can best help me, and other injured workers like me, if they will _____________________________.”If I had an open mic and 2 minutes I would say _____________________________________ to (whom/what) ___________________”

Any groups you would recommend? Include their social media links: ________________________________________________

I usually use this hashtag in my posts:

Dear Linda:

Thank you for providing the documentation from Dr. Bergey and Dr. Chalgujian.  Based on Dr. Bergey’s documentation dated October 17, 2014 you are temporarily partially disabled but may return to work if restrictions can be accommodated.  However, the letter from Dr. Chalgujian dated October 20, 2014, indicates you remain temporarily totally disabled until December 20, 2014,  and thus, cannot work in your role as a Sales Representative or any other role.   Although you have requested information related to a sales job, in prior communications, even you have acknowledged that you do not know if you can return to a sales job and you continue to have cognitive impairments.  Further, you’ve stated that you are unsure if your physicians will accept the professional liability of releasing you.   Based on the information from you and your doctors, it is clear that you are unable to return to work at this time.

However, we understand you had an appointment with Dr. Chalguijian on November 10, 2014.  If you were released to return to work – with or without restrictions, please let us know and complete the Accommodation Request Forms (or provide other documentation to support your release to return to work and related restrictions, if any).  Once you have been released to return to work and we have information regarding your restrictions, we will continue the interactive process and reevaluate your potential return to work. Thank you.

Hi Tina

Thank you for your email. I guess that means continued refusal to engage in FEHA interactive process? BUMMER.

That’s quite a response.  With all that said…has Mike Dougherty initiated a Claim Review and Audit of CNA and Grancell handling of my claim?  I am insured under the #WyndhamWorldWide #WorkComp Insurance policy and I can’t get any help from them. Full breach of fiduciary responsibilities…and severe bad faith.

You realize the additional legal liability to Wyndham from an EEOC perspective, Shane Reidman’s (CNA Fraud investigations unit) question of “…Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?” also needs to be addressed.

Tina, it is obvious from your letter that you also know I need medical treatment.

The breach of fiduciary responsibility by CNA and the obvious deceptive practices of Grancell are outrageous. The refusal of CNA to provide medical care and its failure in 2012 and 2013 to pay temporary total disability benefit is absolutely outrageous .

Tina …what do you suggest I do for medical care, for income, for good, for utilities and to prepare for return to work in some capacity and to save my life?

Intentional harm with intent to kill is a crime in America.

Please advise your suggestions on what I must do next…without medically necessary treatments without disability income without any good faith interactive process and without reimbursement for out of pocket medical expenses incurred because CNA and Wyndham kicked me to the curb and believe they are ABOVE THE LAW??

I look forward to a legitimate response.  If your job been done properly at the time of injury. ..this mess would not likely be as horrific.

Make it right, Tina, and clean up this mess and assure Wyndham Worldwide Workers that what is happening to me stops eith my case. COME CLEAN. …RIGHT THE WRONGS. Talk to Shane.

MOST SINCERELY,
LINDA AYRES, IN PRO PER

PS Will there be a #Wyndham table at the #WorkCompCentral #CompLaudeAwards on December 6 at the Sheraton Gateway LAX?

COMP LAUDE AWARDS

AS YOU KNOW I HAVE BEEN SELECTED AS A FINALIST IN THE INJURED WORKER CATEGORY.

I HOPE TO HAVE A POSITIVE TURN OF EVENTS TO REPORT REGARDING THE HORRIFIC MISHANDLING OF MY CLAIM.   CONTINUING PATTERNS IF HARM ARE NOT A GOOD THING IN THE PUBLIC PRIVATE SECTOR.

One good thing…this case is now of national interest …serving to expose harm and corruption. ..and right now…Wyndham and CNA  are right behind Ralph’s Market and Sedgwick… (Romano Trust vs Sedgwick) establishing a lethal pattern of continuous harm to injured workers in California.

PS  Remember remember, the State of California approved a bonus of approximately $16,000 paid to CNA Insurance by California EDD for REFUSAL TO PAY TTD BENEFITS IN 2012, 2013, SHIFTING BURDEN TO THE STATE, AND LEAVING ME WITHOUT MEDICAL TREATMENT, DISABILITY INCOME, ABILITY TO WORK, NOR HELP IN GETTING HELP TO RETURN TO WORK.

SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE SAYS THEY ALSO KNOW I HAVE BRAIN INJURY, BUT NO BRAINS ARE REQUIRED TO SELL TIMESHARES.  D’OH.  THAT’S ON APPEAL TOO.

Have a nice weekend. Think Think think.  Thanks.
