TBI END THE SILENCE

Steven Gursten!  BIG KUDOS ON THE WINS!

YOUR WIN, YOUR CLIENT’S WIN, AND THE US CONSTITUTION 1ST AMENDMENT WIN!

A BIG THANK YOU!

You’re truly an American Hero, Steven Gursten!

BRAVO! BE RELENTLESS. DO SHARE WITH YOUR COLLEAGUES how they, too, can protect their injured clients.

ABA conclusion:

http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/the_first_amendment_wins_in_dropped_ethics_probe_over_lawyers_hatchet_job_t/

Sadly, in California, most attorneys seem to roll over and quietly serve their clients to the insurance industries on a tarnished platter for a few ‘pieces of silver!’ Perjured reports are greeted with a shrug and ‘that’s just how work comp is’….. if questioned, they shrug again and say, ‘The System is broken!” HOGWASH!

Best regards!
WorkComp Linda and Friends




 

TO ALL OTHERS!

Anybody can be injured at work. Even you! Anybody can get a brain injury, EVEN YOU!

Have you been following the Steven Gursten Esq. situation about IMR’s in a Brain Injury Case?

While it’s not WorkComp, this PI attorney could certainly teach @CAAA and other State’s legal and insurance crowds a thing or two about how to protect an Injured Worker and how to protect the Constitution of the United States of America! It’s a heart warming story!

IMR/QME/AME perjury and other fraud issues are a huge dilemma in California, and seems to be a ‘protected’ action…. Ask any Injured Worker for details!  Will the well-connected doctor in the blog face legal consequences? How is patient?  Will he get medical care now?

Without swaths of similar reports, the rest of the WorkComp process might actually begin to include actual reasonable and appropriate medical care, and legit providers might even have better luck at getting paid to provide care, injured workers might get improvements, might be able to return to work, and save taxpayers “swaths” of monies being shifted from carriers to governmental agencies, etc.

I think I blogged about it… Yes, I did too…. #Blog4TheCures!

Sticks and stones and…attorney disbarment? Did Dr. Rosalind Griffin commit perjury?

Kudos to Anthony Wunsh and friends for tackling such a hot topic on “Government Math.”   See allll the comments on his LinkedIn post, and add yours!

Healthcare: PPACA (Obamacare) what is the real cost to the tax payer

 

“….Mr. Wunsh has the unique experience of having talked to and visited thousands of facilities of all sizes and specialties. He uses this unique street level experience to customize solutions for healthcare providers….”

THINK THINK THINK

I admire the left brain thought processes and ‘street sense’ of Anthony Wunsh, President/CEO Medical Pay Solutions, Consultant, Author, Speaker.

Kudos to Paul Steiger and his team at Pro Publica for their collective and on-going reporting on The Demolition of Workers Compensation.

Kudos to the Congressional representatives who have publicly expressed concern about Workers Compensation matters.  Let’s encourage them to address the bigger picture, too!

Kudos to David DePaolo and his pals for their reporting and blogging and keeping discussions going about national workers compensation issues.

David’s kudos include CompLaude Awards – an annual educational gala identifying those who nationally do their best to do the right thing in the field of WorkComp. (Last year, I was blessed to be one of the four finalists in the Injured Worker Category, and this year I nominated a few of the good peeps in most all categories that I encountered along that way.)

Kudos to Phil Young – Vocational Expert and Forensic Rehabilitation Specialist  for his compassion and his recent articles on Return to Work. Apparently, vocational rehab specialists can be beneficial is divorce proceedings, too.  More dots being connected, indeed!

What Radiation???!!!

JUST ASK BOB NICHOLS

Kudos to Bob Nichols of  Veterans Today for his stellar ongoing nuclear investigative reporting on

YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK

…and much much more (excerpts and links also below, as radiation poisoning is certainly ‘on topic’ with health care matters.)

Yes, WE WERE WARNED.

Did you read the 2012 Nichols article:

What are efforts to contain Fukushima? None.

 

WHO ELSE?

Kudos to The Many who do the often thankless work of being the media we wish to see!  You know who you are!

Thanks to all generations for maximizing the efficiencies of the internet to let the Truth be Known to those with Eyes to See and Ears to Hear.

[“Firewalking is the act of walking barefoot over a bed of hot embers or stones. Firewalking has been practiced by many people and cultures in all parts of the world, with the earliest known reference dating back to Iron Age India – c. 1200 BCE. It is often used as a rite of passage, as a test of an individual’s strength and courage…”]

 

Imagine what The White Rose Society might have accomplished if only they had the internet.  Read The First Leaflet when you get a moment over the coming holidays.  [“The White Rose was a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany, consisting of students from the University of Munich and their philosophy professor. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign..”]

Count your blessings, ‘praise the Lord and pass the [virtual] ammunition!’

GOD BLESS AMERICA, AND CROWN HER GOOD WITH BROTHERHOOD…

Thank you, I read comments on my posts, and often turn them into new posts, rather than directly responding.  It’s a #TBI thing.

__________________________________________________

Prior to the WorkComp Brain Injury of 1/9/12, I would have easily followed the complicated thoughts and math in the article.

Read it all for yourself, and take appropriate actions in your own sphere of influence.  My un-filtered suggestions are below, for what it’s worth!

My first reaction and comment was:

In a quick google search on ‘how the shell game works’ look what I just found! “…They’ve taken the pea, rising healthcare costs and rising premium costs, off the table. It’s a con.”   See for yourself!

How The Shell Game Con Works (also known as “Three Card Monte”)

This morning I woke up with the same article, and some other articles, on my mind.

Here’s what I thought  (and posted) (and added to) after further reflection.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?  Leave your comments directly on Anthony’s post, pretty please and thank you…. it’s too mind boggling for my further attention at the moment.

________________________________________________

WorkCompLinda‘s elaborated comments from initial post on the Anthony Wunsh article:

Healthcare: PPACA (Obamacare) what is the real cost to the tax payer

Good Morning! It’s heart warming to see such significant discussion about the #MagicMath involved in ‘health care’ matters in America! Thank you, Anthony, and thanks to your friends also involved in discussions!

I have been pondering on this since it was posted, and this morning I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if Paul Steiger’s group at @ProPublica would do a series on THESE matters? If only Anthony Wunsh and the other well versed business people who have commented here [and there,] would connect with Paul either right here on LinkedIn or privately, and also with one of their top reporters, @MichaelGrabell, perhaps demolition and reconstruction could happen sooner rather than later. @HowardBerkes at @NPR is also a huge part of the ongoing InjuredWorker/WorkComp insurance investigative journalism series……”

That’s what I thought, upon awakening today!

What ProPublica did for the People of America, in their stellar expose called THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS’ COMPENSATION, is still sending shockwaves throughout the work comp insurance industries and related agencies and offices of providers.

The Injured Worker community doesn’t see much promise in the ‘studies, reports and chit chat’ while ‘dying in the streets’ awaiting medical care and benefits, YET. It’s a series. Here’s the link: https://www.propublica.org/article/the-demolition-of-workers-compensation

In addition to inciting serious dialogue about Worker’s Compensation issues in the nation, ProPublica and NPR apparently successfully incited some Congressional Interest, evidenced by the October 20, 2015 letter signed by 10 current members of Congress to the Secretary of the Department of Labor.

My favorite part of the letter is the last paragraph…. the part about:

“….In particular, we would welcome a report from the Department on how it will reinstitute oversight of state workers’ compensation programs, what areas it intends to address, and whether added authorities are needed to better ensure the that the interests of injured workers and taxpayers are protected.”

YEAH! Send in the National Guard, for starters!!!

“The whole damn system is wrong!”

 

Here’s the link to the Congressional letter, and let’s hope it is the beginning of a Congressional Task Force https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/2465674/letter-from-federal-lawmakers-to-labor-on.pdf

Could Corporate America incorporate PT, OT, and SLP into on-site services as part of ADA and WorkComp ‘reasonable accommodations’?  THINK THINK THINK PEOPLE….  


What if each Representative of The People that signed that October 2015 letter found ten or more additional Congressional representatives to sign a new letter to the Secretary of the Department of Insurance with copies to the new Attorney General who seems to have a reputation for frowning on fraud and shenanigans, along with copies to appropriate officials at DOJ and FBI???

As it stands today, it seems that most Americans still have a degree of ‘freedom of choice’ but it is more along lines of ‘the shower on the left or the shower on the right.’

It’s TIME FOR CHANGE, wouldn’t you all agree?

Anthony! If you write it, they may sign it, and Pro-Publica, NPR and even Corporate Media might publish it and get this party started.  Let’s talk about Insurance, Health Care and the Grand Heist in progress!


Imagine that! If we can say it, we can do it, because
“WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE THE MEDIA NOW”

“EACH ONE WARN ONE” ….. Discuss it further with your friends and neighbors and colleagues….. I will too!

Let’s count our blessings, and hum a few bars of “Praise the Lord and Pass the [Virtual] Ammunition,” shall we?

For some realllly scary information, be alert to what’s happening on nuclear fronts. Check in with the international physics communities and draw your own conclusions. Reflect on what it means to the insurance industries. Start here with the question presented in the series, “YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK” 

“ARE WE UNDER ATTACK?”

 

“The benefits of living in Washington, DC are never ending and far surpass those of Normal men and women living in other cities, towns and metropolitan areas – even New York. NY City had a 753 CPM High this week.”

Recently, someone said, “someone told me that linda died. who are you?”

L: That sounds like some serious troll work. If your source is the same one that says I don’t have a brain injury, there you have it. That’s actually pretty damn funny…. Thanks…. I’m fighting the good fight, and I will expose those fake injured workers, in due time…. They harm too many of us… they prey on the weak and the needy…. and probably have a nice retirement account at Langley? Tell me more, if you feel like it. In any event, thanks for the alert.

x: “Well I was wondering about this too cuz I thought you were for real but they’re telling me that you died and your son has taken your place doing your writing. Since I’ve never spoken to you or seeing you I’m hoping you’re alive because that would be awful if you weren’t. I figure out who it was that said that you clue you in.”

Accomplishment 1:

“The mission of ProPublica is to practice and promote investigative journalism in the public interest.” Mission accomplished, and more to come! Thank you Paul Steiger and your team of investigative soldiers on the WorkComp War Fronts! They even have a Code of Ethics! https://www.propublica.org/about/code-of-ethics/ Vision, Insight, Leadership and Courage to facilitate, authorize and inspire “The Demolition of Workers Compensation” Series by Michael Grabell, ProPublica reporter, and Howard Berkes NPR reporter in March 2015. https://www.propublica.org/article/the-demolition-of-workers-compensation

Accomplishment 2:

Vision, Insight, Leadership and Courage to facilitate, authorize and inspire reporting on “Insult to Injury – America’s Vanishing Worker Protections” http://www.npr.org/series/394891172/insult-to-injury-americas-vanishing-worker-protections

Accomplishment 3:

Vision, Insight, Leader and Courage to facilitate, authorize and inspire a national investigative reporting continous event to collect information and report on Workers’ Comp stories across America… “Share Your Workers’ Comp Story As part of our ongoing investigation, we invite you to tell us about your experience navigating the workers’ comp system. Have something we should look into? Share Your Story…” https://www.propublica.org/getinvolved/item/help-propublica-investigate-workers-comp

Accomplishment 4:

Some of the stellar and courageous investigative leaders and reporters empowered by the leadership of Paul Steiger include, but are not limited to: Richard Tofel, president, Stephen Engelberg, Editor in Chief and reporters Michael Grabell, Terry Parris, Jr. Amanda Zamora, Marshall Allen and others. “He is a member of the steering committee of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, based in Arlington, Va., which provides free legal assistance to journalists. He is a trustee of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, based in Miami, that funds efforts to enhance journalism and the functioning of American communities.”…. and such leadership, no doubt, encourages bravery and will to good by his teams of Investigative Reporters. People won’t stick their neck out like is being done with the reporting on Workers Compensation in America, without SunTzu type leadership evidenced by Paul Stieger.

Accomplishment 5:

Paul Steiger is an award winner of the CPJ International Press Freedom Award. CPJ is the Committee to Protect Journalists – and those protections surely extend to those brave investigative reporters on the staff of ProPublica and related ventures with NPR and Beacon –of the American WarOnWorkers and Homeland Security issues therewith. “…I was at first cranky the other day when BuzzFeed stole one of our brilliant senior editors at ProPublica. But then I realized his new job is to recruit half a dozen reporters and start an investigations team. For society and for journalism, we are seeing some progress.” “We can’t rest. We need to fight hard whenever the First Amendment is challenged at home. We need to speak out, even more vigorously than before, when journalists are abused around the world. We need to keep finding more inventive ways to fund and carry out serious reporting. And, of course, we need to keep supporting CPJ.” https://cpj.org/awards/2013/paul-steiger.php The entire acceptance speech of 2013 can be read here https://cpj.org/awards/Paul%20Steiger%20-%20Speech.pdf The Spirit of Courage and Cooperation is also evidenced in “ProPublica Partners with Beacon to Promote Workers’ Comp Reporting” — https://www.propublica.org/article/propublica-partners-with-beacon-to-promote-workers-comp-reporting ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Why this nominee deserves a Comp Laude™ Award:

The above accomplishment speak loudly. Paul Steiger, Executive Chairman of ProPublica has opened the Pandora’s Box of the Workers Compensation devastating WarOnWorkers, serving to increase awareness of the issues that America’s Working Class has silently endured for far too long. How long? TOOOOOOOOOOO LONG. In the Hollywood Movie, Avatar, the destroying psychopaths were ultimately driven off the planet….. We can hope for similar results and change as more Americans transcend Learned Helplessness about the atrocities of America’s Workers Compensation systems. Never give up. Never give in. Remember Remember… WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW. TEAMWORK and COLLABORATIVE COOPERATION TO EXTEND LIVES. Every American can help ProPublica by sharing stories with them, and count on them to report back to We, The People. Paul and his teams may have well launched a revolution on behalf of InjuredWorkers everywhere, exposing the Profits Before Lives business model of the predatory insurance companies, and ultiimately, exposing the depth of the unclean hands involved in the destruction of the American Working class. Thanks Paul! Great job! #InjuredWorkersUniting #SilentNoMore— HOW MAY WE HELP?!

COMP LAUDE™ AWARDS & GALA – NOMINEE CONFIRMATION

Thank you for taking the time to nominate someone for a Comp Laude™ Award!

Please review the information you have provided:

Nominee type: person
First name: Rebecca
Last name: Shafer
Title: Training Consultant & Editor
Employer: COMPClub
Phone: 8607868286
Email: rshaferb@aol.com
Category: Leadership Comp Laude

Years known: 1-3 years

Accomplishment 1:

Made it possible for at least one injured worker to realize that not all member of the Workers Compensation industries are hell bent on maiming and killing Injured Workers for profit.

Accomplishment 2:

Made it possible for several industry panelists and bloggers to realize that Injured Workers are human beings, and the system that pays everybody so well is actually malfunctioning when it comes to injured workers and costs to employers.

Accomplishment 3:

Successfully built a bridge over the chasm between Injured Workers and the Industry, and found an Injured Worker Advocate for the book, Advisen and Amaxx produce “Your Ultimate Guide to Mastering Workers’ Comp Costs: Reduce Costs 20-50%” at http://www.WCManual.com, as it is included in at least one injured worker’s blog of resources as well as the further establishment of COMPClub http://www.workerscompclub.com – “a dynamic training organization.”

Accomplishment 4:

Very diplomatically and expertly increased awarenesses of some of the flaws in the existing workers compensation systems across America, and has incited dramatic private and conference level discussions and facilitated extreme cognitive dissonance in otherwise staid circles.

Accomplishment 5:

May well have been quite instrumental in extending the life of at least one Brain Injured WorkComp Survivor in California, by believing and having compassion and kindness, and the will to good.

Why this nominee deserves a Comp Laude™ Award:

Becki Shafer is a very powerful and quite politically correct advocate for human rights, civil rights, dignity and a better Workers Compensation outcome for Injured Workers and Employers and Industry members. When I first saw her book, and ordered a copy, as the consummate professional that Becki is, her outreach to the Injured Worker purchasing a copy of her book was most welcome. That was perhaps two years ago? Not much has changed in my WorkComp case, but greater understanding all the way around seems to be still taking place. Becki graciously reviewed some of my records, kindly encouraged hope, with some gentle directions. As many of the ‘files’ shared are fine examples for companies on “HOW NOT TO HANDLE A WORKERS COMPENSATION CLAIM’….. it has been a privilege and pleasure to share information that can and is being put to good use, for the greater good. One of Becki’s simple recommendations to employers with Injured Workers is worth diamonds…. SEND A GET WELL CARD, AND EXTEND GET WELL WISHES, for starters. Becki’s training manual and new company effort, COMPClub, should be on everybody’s “must have” New Year’s Resolution lists—- and starting early would be a good thing. BRAVA, BECKI SHAFER! THANK YOU FOR BEING A POSTER-GAL FOR THE GOOD THAT CAN BE FOUND IN WORKCOMP, if one is persistent and never gives up! I hope a future chapter of your book will include caveats to WorkCompsters who wrongfully deny medical care and benefits to Injured Workers — reminding them that they may hold the stacked deck of cards now, but the internet levels the playing field, and We, The People, are simply fed up. #InjuredWorkers are uniting, and CommitteesOfBloggers are on the Horizon… It’s a privilege to call you Friend. Let’s get some of those men you panel with a little more up to date on what changes REALLY MUST HAPPEN ACROSS THE NATION IN THE WORK COMP BATTLE FIELDS!
