Secret Group

Something is terribly wrong with workers’ compensation, isn’t it.
One intention for this ‘secret group’ is to create a safe environment to learn WORK COMP SURVIVAL AND VIRTUAL COMBAT SKILLS. We work like antz, and wil create an international Committee of Bloggers sharing truth about the problems and potential solutions — AIMED AT ESCAPE AND SURVIVAL FROM WORKERS COMPENSATION EXTERMINATION PROGRAMS. PETITIONS ARE NOT A PART OF THIS EFFORT, as they can be very dangerous to Injured Workers, without proper back up.
Exposing unarmed/unprotected injured workers to database mining by the industry is not wise use of power. PROPER BACK UP INCLUDES BLOGS AND MULTIPLE SOCIAL MEDIA SITES. AND A POWERFUL STRATEGY AND PLAN. ATTACKING THE ENEMIES OF HUMANITY IS OF LITTLE USE, UNLESS FOR IMMEDIACY WHEN ATTACKED.
A GOAL IS TO DEVELOP BUSINESS SOLUTIONS TO GET FREE FROM THE ATROCITIES OF WORKCOMP. THAT MEANS MEDIATIONS AND STRUCTURED SETTLEMENTS and how to get your oppressors to the negotiation tables to save your life, and the lives of others.
START LEARNING ABOUT ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES NOW, AND IGNORE THE OLD TIMERS WHO ARE CLUELESS — AND AGGRESSIVELY SO– WITH THEIR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE.
Here we’ll create a support group for those interested in taking responsibility for their own freedom and to move forward, using ‘trials by media’ to encourage mediation and structured settlements for escape from the atrocities of Workers Compensation, and those who have already escaped are welcome to lend some energy to help the other escape.
Those who want to fight legal nonsense and who have fairy tale hopes that the ‘government’ will save you, regardless of your country of origin, will find little of interest here.
THIS IS A PLACE TO LEARN WORKCOMP SURVIVAL SKILLS AND VIRTUAL COMBAT STRATEGIES TO SAVE LIVES. There is zero tolerance for industry trolls or troll-like behavior. ZERO. #OccupyVirtually #OccupyWorkComp #OpBlog #DodgeTheRads 6/3/2016 WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW

Parliament will be sitting next week to debate a Bill which will – • cut injured workers pay by 20% after 13 weeks • kick nearly everyone off the scheme after 2 and a half years • suspend payments if an injured worker disputes a decision about their claim. Unions, lawyers and injured worker support groups in SA want to stop injured worker pay cuts and their rights taken away.

Here is a letter to ‘Fred, The Adjuster & Other Stakeholderss’

Dear Fred:

May I suggest that the Grancell partners, with your lead, Fred, review this case and consider sending the neuro and psych evaluations to a third party for evaluation of fraud, and failures to provide medically necessary treatment as repeatedly requested since 1/9/12.  Copies should likely be sent to the District Attorney, and we can leave that to Shane Riedman?  Bruce Leckart’s office might be a good place to start.  He is a LinkedIn connection for me and Norin (and I spoke to his office last year, and have been invited to call again with all this new life-threatening krap.)

Attached is the progress report of 1/19/15 with requests for authorization from Dr. Hilda Chalgujian.  [not on blog copy; available upon request; no secrets]

Obviously, by yesterday’s US postal service mail, I see the bad faith actions promoted by Grancell continue, and have apparently contributed to your failure to keep your word and send PD advance money, or to advise me of any delay.  Mean.  I hate mean.  Being mean to disabled people is just …. inhumane.

PS, by copy to Wyndham Leave Support, the accommodations I am now requesting since we never engaged in interactive process, necessary  since October 2012,  am hereby requesting extension of leave of absence to complete one year at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach, which, ideally, will be completed on or before December 1, 2015, at which time I hope to be able to return to work.

linda-ayres-says-join-me-on-twitter and linked in lindaayres311

At your demand, I spent the $450 to reinstate my lost California Real Estate Broker’s license, and I willl work on getting a new California Notary license in the interim.  I have no hope to regain my lost Hawaii real estate license, due to failures of the Wyndham WorkComp program, which is an epic fail, causing permanent brain damage to me.  Remember remember…. Dr. Kang, the first neurosychologist I was evaluated by, recommended immediate speech therapy with cognitive remediation, and suggested return to work would happen shortly after that.  WHY DIDN’T CNA PROVIDE IMMEDIATE CARE THAT COULD HAVE SAVED MY BRAIN FUNCTIONS. WHY DID WYNDHAM HR AND RISK MANAGEMENT FAIL TO INTERVENE WITH THE WRONG DOINGS OF THEIR VENDORS???   HEINOUS CRIMES OF THE “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES” CROWDS.   The law of karma will prevail.

As we discussed, I am willing to consider mediation after this current Coastline session, and before the Summer session, if Grancell has any interest in settlement. Apparently, they do not.   Apparently Kim Mall is back in the picture, with her pretenses and file churning.  Yech!

Life with TBI is so

I told the Judge I wouldn’t be back to his Court (after my ADA rights were violated again there!)  till I found an agency to deal with the allegations of fraud, and my files are building.  I haven’t found such an agency yet, and some Super Lawyers have told me it doesn’t matter if have video of fraud being committed to deny medical care; can’t make it stick. WorkComp fraud is too big of a racket.  Yeah, maybe.  One person and God constitutes an Army, so might be a standoff.  Remember David and that Giant!

I was shocked that the Petition received yesterday from Grancell for yet another neuro psych eval was not delivered to me electronically, in compliance with ADA repeated requests, and was delivered by hand to the WCAB Court, to take unfair advantage, as is the pattern of practice.  Remember, CNA couldn’t find a neuro-psych in 3 years, what’s changed?   I had to find all the brain doctor help I got.  I had to pay for most of it.

The bulk of evaluations and recommendations were just profits for the evaluating doctors, and billable lawyer time.  How many times and ways does Grancell think it takes to verify a brain injury.  Daniel Elliott was told on the phone in January 2012, while I was in session with Dr. Daniel DeGoede, of the possible severe extent of injuries and the urgencies for immediate care.  How did Daniel respond?  By the PlayBook?  ‘Upon verified diagnosis of brain injury, terminate benefits and do all things possible to maim, torture and hopefully kill injured worker, with or without delays.’  ???

wc workers-comp-fraud  if your company lies

CHECK THE EVALUATIONS, RECOMMENDATIONS OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS, AND COMPARE TO ACTUAL TREATMENT, COUNTING OR NOT COUNTING WHAT I HAVE SELF-PROCURED.  ACOEM, MTUS, NIH GUIDELINES WERE NOT FOLLOWED, AND IF THIS WASN’T AMERICA, SOME PEOPLE MIGHT BE ARRESTED FOR HAS BEEN DONE TO ME, AND TO OTHERS LIKE ME.

That would include reports of neurologists ( (noting that your first alleged ‘mpn’ neurologist, Esmail Sebti, refused to see me when I appeared for appointment organized through EAP clinical psychologist, Dr. Daniel DeGoede, found through the CIGNA EAP program, as there never has been “proper notice” of the MPN process and network, as Ms. Mall repeatedly mis-states in her threats to various doctors. Dr. Sebti’s office perjured when they indicated I did not appear.)

NEUROLOGISTS – 

Dr. Stephen R. Walman, Dr. Bijan Zardouz, Dr. Ronald N Kent, Dr. Michael Lobatz, Dr. Seymour Young, Dr. Jay Jurkowitz

Brain Injury Interdisciplinary Team Members (Scripps, summer 2014, after 1/9/12 injury; time was of the essence, duration at SCRIPPs was requested for 3-6 MONTHS, got 16 days, with extend of 8 days; not in compliance with ACOEM, NIH OR MTUS, huh? By not allowing me to complete that program, that was a waste of $50,000+ of somebody’s money.  COASTLINE is approximately $400 a SEMESTER! d’OH.

SCRIPPS – Dr. Michael J. Lobatz, Neurologist; Jessica Martinez, Case Manager, OTR/L, HTC, PAM; Kelly Owen, MA, CCC-SLP; Rebecca Askew, MPT; Margaret Fuller, MA, OT/L.

Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program Consulting Psychologist is Dr. James Pasino.   website: coastline.edu  (report pending)

JAUDY TREATMENT CENTER – Dr. Gilbert Jaudy – Functional Neurology Practice

PSYCHOLOGISTS/NEUROPSYCHOLOGISTS/PSYCHIATRIST/CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGISTS

Dr. Hilda Chalgujian, current PTP  NeuroPsychologist ( since Dr. Bergey, former PTP, has withdrawn from the case and is no longer willing to attempt to facilitate treatment, as repeatedly attempted for nearly 2 years.)

Dr. Marcel Ponton, QME and Psychologist (unsure if he is a neuro-psychologist, he was former PTP, and tests were done by associate Dr. Gunn, and 4 talk-therapy session with his associate Dr. Chung.  Terminated after threat from Ms. Mall on false allegations that she had not received his reports, and even with several proofs of service, she repeatedly omitted his records, skewing reports of AME/QME doctors, and causing substantial billable hours for file churning and Court time, well documented; check EAMS for the last one.)

Dr. Daniel DeGoede, referred by Wyndham Worldwide EAP program for extreme confusion after the injury of 1/9/12.

Dr. Eileen Kang, Neuropsychologist, referred by Dr. DeGoede and authorized by Daniel Elliott.

As I indicated, I have found my voice in social media, and if Grancell chooses to represent Wyndham and CNA in such a manner that I continue blogging to expose the horrors I have endured, and continue to endure at the hands of all parties of this WorkComp fiasco, so be it.  We can do this for years.  It may have to be chalked up to “vocational rehab” that has also been denied.

I have also applied for a MENSA scholarship to help with the ABI Program expenses, and other financial aid.

San DIEgo moves decisively into the 500 Rad cateGory with a 506 cpm reading….not a good sign.

encourage others

So, it’s a challenge whether or not I really want to fight so hard to get back to Coastline vs. sheltering in place, and limiting rad exposure, for what that’s worth these days.   Wyndham won’t let me return to work because I didn’t get the medically necessary treatment, and CNA won’t authorize medically necessary treatment, so it’s back to that ‘circle jerk’ thing.  CNA stopped paying TTD 5/8/14, and did not pay the 104 weeks, but through funny accounting, got away with it, and apparently, it was ‘legal’ even though morally reprehensible.

Please note from Dr. Hilda Chalgujian’s report:

Dr Hilda Chalgujian exerpt from 1 19 2015 progress report

Attached also is a response to me from the US Department of Labor — Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs dated 12/31/14.  (posted earlier on Twitter)

Please note that the LTD provider’s IME evaluations of 11/8/14 and 1/2/15 resulted in ‘medical certification through December 1, 2015.’    I’m going to Coastline to get as much care and information as can so that eventually I can reconstruct some sort of life, which includes but is not limited to ensuring that crooked doctors and lawyers are slowed down from killing people like me, and My Fellow Americans.

As you know, I will be at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program starting tomorrow, through May 31, 2015, assuming funds clear.  I have also initiated a fund raising campaign to help sustain me since Wyndham and CNA have failed me miserably, and have caused permanent brain damage in the process.  The neuro-psychological battery of tests report from Coastline in October 2014 will be available soon.  This is a State Funded program, and their funding relies, in part, on showing measurable improvements of the small, select group of brain injured people.  I am fortunate to have found them, and although Daniel Elliott, CNA former adjuster, refused to even investigate it let alone authorize it in May of 2014, violating the legal requirements again to have been proactive in facilitating medical care.

It seems to me that the defense firm is continuing churning of files, with apparent hope to provoke me to file the FEHA claim due to the continued refusals of Wyndham, apparently at the direction of Grancell-Novato, to refuse to engage in interactive process for return to work.  Professional intervention for the interactive process was paid for in the brief treatment in the summer of 2014 at the Scripps Brain Injury Day Treatment program.  Why Wyndham refused to engage is a mystery to SCRIPPS and to all my acquaintances in the “industry” as it subjects Wyndham to a lawsuit that could create legal fees in excess of $700,000, I am told.  I suppose there is hope by Grancell that they will be retained to defend such a claim?  Is that double-dipping?

As you know, I am expecting from you an advance on permanent disability funds so that I can resume treatment at the State Funded program for cognitive rehabilitation at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program.  I had hoped to receive the funds prior to departure for Newport Beach.  I did not receive anything further from you.

I am grateful that Wyndham Worldwide has authorized travel vouchers to reduce the costs for my stay while attending the Mon-Thu, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm program.  The hotel is nearby, and because I stayed there, again, at my own cost because of the continued failures by CNA to provide medically necessary treatments, I can’t just lay down and die, as the carrier and defense may wish me to do.

Here is an excerpt from Dr. Bergey’s final report, and they cancelled my scheduled appointment for January 9, 2015 because of the MMI-Orthopedic determination, and, as was known when Dr. Bergey was designated at PTP by Kimberly Mall of Grancell and Valerie James of WCAB – Info and Officer during a hearing in which I was not allowed to be seen or heard by a Judge until they had sufficiently emotionally battered me to agree to another Orthopedic Surgeon to “coordinate treatment”.

excerpt Dr Darren Bergey Report 12 19 2014

I’m get tired of trying to convey the vile situation I have been exposed to, like right now tire.  They call it COGNITIVE FATIGUE.  I gotta finish and send this, without edits.

I have to pack to get to Coastline, and I don’t want to fuss with Kim Mall or Stewart Reubens.  I consider them both to be pure enemies of humanity, and pathetically polite in their attempts to appear human. I nearly spit when I saw her “respectful’ and snakey appeal to the Judge.

I will be happy to consider mediation in June.  I will not be happy if you continue to f—k with this final attempt to get some help at Coastline so I can resume life, in some manner.

So, if you’re sending me the money you promised, please do so, and if you can wire it, all the better.  I will have limited email access and no snail mail access.

I will be forwarding the medical bills that arrived in December for your payment, as that slip and fall was also clearly a consequence of cognitive impairements.

I’m sorry I feel like you tricked me again.  It’s so ugly, but when I saw Kim’s signature, I know what to prepare for.

I don’t want to fool with any of you while I’m at Coastline.  I will if I must, be assured of that.

Sincerely,

Linda Ayres, In Pro Per

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW

LEGAL STRATEGIES TO INCREASE LEGAL FEES AND #WorkComp PREMIUMS TODAY

Rule #1:  “…. so, ignore all protests that appear widely in Social Media and Industry outlets…..”

  • Got #TBI?  Lawyer Up? Patterns of Practice in the #WorkComp Industries in America?

  • Linked In Profile Strength 1 26 15
  • this person does not play well with stupid people
  • The pattern of practice in the WorkComp industries in America for treatment of traumatic brain injury appears to be:

    .

    1. Immediately terminate disability benefits upon confirmation of diagnosis of brain injury in any of the ICD-9 codes (Within 90 days.)  Delay and Deny all requests for experts and medical care, without fear or consequences until death or settlement, whichever comes first.

    2. Shift financial burden to State agencies, delay reimbursements as long as possible, and negotiate severe discounts at InjuredWorker and tax payer expenses for lien settlements.

    3. Authorize numerous expensive medical evaluations by Orthopedic Surgeons and non Brain Injury experts, and ignore/deny/non-recommend all recommendations for specialist evaluations and treatments; do not even reimburse medical miles to injured worker, adding to financial hardships created.  Discount medical fees severely, and terminate doctors (temporarily or permanently)  from MPN if they try too hard to obtain medical care authorizations.

    4. Offer premature settlement of $100,000, less attorney fees, without benefit of proper medical evaluations and immediate reasonable and necessary treatments after approximately one year of 3-D practices, Delay, Deceive, Deny…

    5. Premature settlement offer also requires injured worker to forfeit any future medical treatment, forfeit right to apply for social security disability, forfeit right to unemployment and yes, it also requires resignation from employment, without recourse. Attempt by carriers to shift burdens to ‘Affordable Care.’

    Advise clients to have absolutely NO RETURN TO WORK interactive process and shun all requests for RTW with or without accommodations.  Rely on doctor’s regular reports of TTD, and continue to fail to authorize and/all requests for medical care that would facilitate RTW.

    6. Omission of medical records with intent to deny medical care is an apparent successful common pattern of practice, involving days of Judge face-to-face time to obtain Court Order for defense to include all medical records. No consequences when patterns of deceptions and med-legal chicanery continue. Doctor reports moving dates of injury a year forward to falsely substantial first year records as evidence of ‘pre-existing injuries’ seems to be another standard practice, and when objected to, dates are corrected in expensive supplement reports, but not conclusions.

    7. Designation of an Orthopedic Surgeon as the Primary Treating Physician, with initial intent that said MD would organize specialty doctors, then all specialty requests for evaluations and treatment with specialty doctors are to be ignored or passed on to UR, without full medical evidence, for further non-authorizations.

    WC evaluating neurologists suggest analgesics for TBI, and exercise, despite vestibular disorders, and seem in the dark that vision processing is via the brain, not the eyes.

    8. In collusion with others in the legal & work comp field, when competent counsel has not been secured by injured worker, continuous file churning for profits is the pattern of practice, along with bullying, terrorism and threats not only to injured worker, but to doctors requesting appropriate medical care; some threats appear to fall into the category beyond fraud to extortion?

    Such actions appear approved by not only WC but also DIR and DA and DOJ? Adult Protective Services frowns on the practices that cause continuous harm to such injured workers, and are unafraid to speak up. Salvation Army has also proven it’s charitable contributions in California. Local Crisis Center, State Funded, are also a source of help to injured workers when WC fails.

    If #InjuredWorker refuses to be drugged for compliance with legal chicanery, Defense can offer legal opinion of incompetence and suggest designating “Conservator”.

    IF Injured Worker fights back and cannot find competent WorkComp legal counsel, and Judge refuses to allow hourly-fee-basis legal help to unrepresented worker, although the guidelines suggest it is within the Judge’s authority to do so, ignore all protests that appear widely in Social Media and Industry outlets.  

    Object to any/all InjuredWorker  offers for mediation and settlement with lawyer-ly rudeness disguised as politeness, audacity, arrogance and further bullying….for more billable hours. Read nothing, “just say no.”

    9. Full breach of all fiduciary responsibilities to insured corporation and injured worker, without consequences and without Claim Audit by Corporation.

Where O Where are the Brave and Smart WorkComp Injured Worker Attorneys?

“If you have an interest, I’m way open to your direction on how to move forward with RTW and accommodations requests.  They have cut my benefits off, so I’m back between a rock and hard place, and it snows a bit where I live, and I’m not willing to look for food banks or welfare offices again.  Once was more than enough….”  – September 2014

A FEHA/Employment Law and Civil Rights Law Firm, and a Class Action Law firm are also desired.  Wassup America?

“Intent” is important in WorkComp.  “Intent to Kill” is a matter for the Department of Justice, imho.

WC  WorkComp Kills

The info you provide is helpful, but here’s the bottom line data I’d like to see if I can help you, informally or by representation:

(1)     Who are your work comp doctors?

(a)     Who is your PTP?

(b)    Who are your secondary treating doctors (i.e, in other specialties)?

(c)     Do you have any AMEs or QMEs, and if so, who are they?

(2)     Have any of the above doctors found you to be MMI yet?  As of what date?

(3)     If you are MMI per any doctor, what’s your WPI and the apportionment analysis?

(4)     Any trials or findings by a work comp judge yet?  If so, who and at which WCAB office?

(5)     What treatment is authorized?  Any IMR determinations yet or in the works?

(6)     Are you getting SSDI, or have you applied for it?  If so, do you have an MSA?  What’s the amount?

If you email me answers to these questions….

Life with TBI is so

(1)     Who are your work comp doctors?

I have a list of approximately 35 doctors, by specialty, diagnosis, recommended treatments (not provided) and ICD -9  codes, referred by whom and whether on alleged MPN, authorized exception or self-procured..  I have to look for it and it will follow when I get home (Thursday nite)

(a)     Who is your PTP?

Current:  Dr. Darren Bergey, Orthopedic Surgeon, since 2/14/2013.  Knows nothing about brains, and all efforts to get me to experts failed, organized by  attorney #3.

Prior PTP, Dr. Marcel Ponton, QME, Clinical Psychologist (not sure if he is a neuro-psych); Organized by attorney #2, located in Pasadena, 3 hours from my home.  I met with him twice…once in April 2012, once in October 2012.  He did not perform the neuro-psych tests, his colleague, Dr. Gunn, did.  His other colleague, Dr. Chung provided approximately 4 clinical psychology sesssions, focussed primary on stress and pretending there are no cognitive impairments.  Dr. Ponton requested neuro-feedback, neurology, neuro-optometry…. to no avail.  In October 2012, after threating letter from Defense, he said I could return to work with accommodations as clerk.  No medical treatment with him, but somehow after defense threat, I magically got well.  Several of his reports have been repeatedly omitted by defense in order to continue to deny medical.  Some of his reports read like I got the requested evaluations and treatment, but I didn’t and he only requested; complete failure to obtain medical care.  (April 2012 – December 2012; authorized exception to alleged MPN, by Court Order, June 2012.)

After dismissing attorney #2 and requesting hearing for right to medical care and treatment by a specialist, I & A officer and then-defense counsel told me to come prepared with 3 doctors names, which I did, but they were not on the alleged MPN List (I was never properly noticed, that’s another can of worms).  So, the two women made me chose another Orthopedic Surgeon who would then “coordinate specialty doctors”.  I chose Dr. Jacob Rabinovich, Orthopedic Surgeon and had an eval and he wrote a report.  As there was an increasing demand for a QME/AME, I retained counsel #3, and they didn’t like Rabinovich, so they sent me to Dr. Bergey, who is stil the PTP, but wants out as they have been threatened by defense to stop requesting brain injury treatment or they would lose their MPN status.   On my right shoulder rotator cuff injury, clearly evidenced as a impacted body part by several reporting doctors, discovered by Dr. Bergey after physical therapy authorized Spring 2013, authorized MRI of shoulder, recommended shoulder surgery (no thanks, I’m familliar with Romano Trust vs Segdwick)….defense then told Dr. Bergey stop reporting it as “industrial injury” so mid-summer 2013 he changed it to “non-industrial”…. a Crowe-Paradis report obtained by defense in Nov 2012 with intent to coerce premature settlement also included the right shoulder….so it’s just silly that once the severity is discovered they want to say “oops, not related”… D’oh.

Attorney #1’s “office manager” was the case manager and was the first to send me to an Orthopedic Surgeon.  I told her I needed a brain doctor, she said Work Comp required I start with an Orthopedic Surgeon.  His name is Dr. Sunny Gurvindo (?) UPPAL.  The office manager also said, “there’s no psych component to a work comp injury”… I said, “It’s not a psych component, it’s my BRAIN.”….

The first doctor I saw, on the date of injury, was local chiropractor, Dr. Jamie Whitlock.  I thought I just needed an adjustment.  He said I had a concussion.  By Wednesday of that awful week, I was getting all sorts of confusing info and directions from employer, so I called EAP for help for confusion.  They sent me to a clinical psychologist, Dr. David DeGoede, who administered several tests, referred me to a local neurologist, and told me to get anMRI by any means necessary.  (I knew nothing of any MPN, was just following directions of EAP.)  Dr. DeGoede became my first PTP.

SUMMARY OF PTPs:

  1. Dr. Daniel DeGoede, Clinical Psychologist, referred by Wyndham EAP program, paid for by CIGNA (Jan-Apr 2012)
  2. Dr. Marcel Ponton, Psychologist, referred by attorney #2; also a QME dude. (Apr – Dec 2012)
  3. Dr. Jacob Rabinovich, Orthopedic Surgeon, one time evaluations; replaced by attorney #3’s doctor: (1 visit)
  4. Dr. Darren Bergey, Orthopedic Surgeon….. (Feb 2013 to present; wants out)

(b)    Who are your secondary treating doctors (i.e, in other specialties)?

  1.  PAST:  Bijan Zardouz, insurance company doctor- neurologist, no expertise in TBI, no brain knowledge, designated as 2nd TP by attorney #3,  Zardouz thought it was a one time consult and wrote a egregiously incorrect report for top dollar.  Defense had omitted more than 300 pages of medical records; took court order to get the missing records to the doctor and requesting a supplemental report.  He threatened to sue me for “harassment” for properly serving the omitted records; so I had to convince the Judge to get involved.  Rather than just send the omitted records, defense just sent a box of all records again and told them to figure out what they missed. 😕
  2.  CURRENT:  Dr. Hilda Chalgujian, Neuro-Psychologist (authorized exception to MPN)….. Dr. Bergey’s office threw up their hands at the last denied medical care or eval or specialist for brain trauma, and told me, “As you can see, they will not authorize any medical treatment we request.  You will have to find your own brain doctor.”  Through a series of phone calls and emails, I found Dr. Hilda who was willing to help me/treat me. Defense jumped in and asked her to do a comprehensive evaluation (she did a 40 pages report, incuding review of prior doctor evaluations) and Defense agreed in Court to have Dr. Hilda as Secondary Treating Doctor.  She is not a work comp doctor and works primarily with head injuries.  I see her mostly weekly.  Her report was May 2014, progress report over due and expected next week.   Dr. Hilda and her report were extremely instrumental in finally getting me some help at an interdisciplinary treatment center like SCRIPPS.    She is also disappointed the amount of time was cut so short.  I don’t think she thinks I’m employable, but she knows I have to return to work to keep a roof over my head in light of the monsterous behavior I have been subjected to.  On Monday I will ask her again about RTW and accommodations and timing.
  3.  CURRENT, SELF PROCURED, DOESN’T FOOL WITH WORK COMP INSURANCE:

Dr. Michael Lobatz, Neurology-Psychiatry, nationally acclaimed,  Chief of Staff at SCRIPPS, organizes SCRIPPS BRAIN INJURY REHABILITATION CONFERENCE ANNUALLY FOR PAST TEN YEARS for and with scientists, military, doctors and other rehab providers.  I attended, at his invitation, the May 2014 event, and learned a great deal more about TBI, and thanks to Dr. Lobatz, the way was made easier to get into SCRIPPS, and his recommendation was for interdisciplinary treatment for 3 months, 3 x a week.  It was reduced further from Dr. Hilda’s request, by the insurance company, to 4 x a week for 4 weeks, extended by 8 more days.  No current appointment scheduled with Dr. Lobatz, although he has been kept apprised of Day Injury Program results and progress.  He didn’t care if I went to SCRIPPS, Learning Center or that other one in Encino…. just care that I got some help.   [There is a program in Newport Beach, a one year program, for cognitive remediation that I am currently applying for…it’s a 3 step interview process, and it’s inexpensive but I would have to relocate, if accepted. and if either Social Security or LTD kicks in for income, or settlement happens.)

(c)     Do you have any AMEs or QMEs, and if so, who are they?

A big mess created by Attorney #3

AME/ Forensic Psychiatrist – James O’Brien  APRIL 2013 with supplemental reports of Aug 2013 and I think October and October 2013, covering his fraudulent tracks poorly — initial report created on incomplete medical evidence (omission of more than 300 pages of medical records; same as above, Court ordered supplemental report upon delivery of omitted documents by defense.  First report indicated that ‘if the finder of facts found evidence of a slip and fall concussion, of course medical treatment would be in order’ and went on to opine, by changing dates of injury to 2013, and used 2012 records to suggest “prior head injury and cognitive failures” etc….. to a full scale “pissing contest” where I suggested he and defense invoke 5th amendment and they moved to secrecy attempting to conceal the records from me and to continue to use them, asking evauating doctors to review but not summarize because of my ‘fragile emotional state’…. by the time his work of fiction (about $10k in fees) was done…. I never had a slip and fall (which was witnessed, and my manager helped me up from the ground)… he further opined that I just had epilepsy and never even fell….. Felony Fraud, imho.  I have evidence; DA found my complaints of interest, so did DOJ.

QME/ Neurology – Dr. Ronald Kent – December 2013 – again, issue of omitted records of more than 300 pages by defense, followed by supplemental report (without court order).  This doctor spent 35 miinutes with me, his staff regurgitated poorly prior medical evidence, and he said that essentially, women over 35 are not entitled to medical treatment for a brain injury and that since I didn’t get any in the first two years, tooo bad, deal with it.  This guy teaches new doctors at UCLA.  Those med students would be wise to be afraid, very afraid.

QME/Orthopedic – Dr. Jefrey Holmes – PENDING     …. Attorney #4 agreed at an expedited hearing for medical treatment that I had organized….for my right to medical care and to dispute the O’Brien fiction, simply agreed to an Orthopedic eval.  It was arranged, postponed, arranged, cancelled, order to compel invoked, was off calendar so didn’t happen, Defense and IW agreed then to postpone till further notice; today Defense asked if it’s time to reschedule; I asked him to wait till I get the accommodations request and interactive process and PROPOSAL FOR RESOLUTION done, or to just plan it for late September or October, late in the afternoon…. He said to let him know when I’m ready…. I told him we’lll tie it to the Proposal for Resolution.

(2)     Have any of the above doctors found you to be MMI yet?  As of what date?

Nobody has found me MMI yet, although in October 2012 Dr. Ponton suggested I could return to work as a clerk.

(3)     If you are MMI per any doctor, what’s your WPI and the apportionment analysis?   N/A

On further thought, the AME Forensic Psychiatrist and QME Neurologist did write something about WPI and MMI….some ridiculously tiny number.. I can look for it.  In my head, their reports are such works of Fraud, I discount everything in them.   
Their reports are debunked by Dr. Hilda Chalgujian (professionally and nicely)…. and the authorized SCRIPPS time and treatment and recommendations for more treatment clearly debunks their allegations that I have no head injuries or that they are minimal.  
Defense counsel (Kim Mall- Grancell, Corona) attempted to lead them to say that a car crash of 2008 and a prior car crash in 2003 were the cause of problems, even though there was never a previous complaint or treatment for any of the symptoms.   However, Dr. Kent, Neurologist, also moved the date of injury to 2013 in his reports and indicated I sought help for confusion, inability to speak, etc, PRIOR to Industrial Injury, citing 2012 initial evals organized by Dr. David DeGoede (EAP referral) as polite obfuscated evidence and the neuro-psych he sent me to, another authorized exception.  
If settlement is not reached in the foreseeable future, it seems to me the O’Brien, Kent, Zardouz fraud will have to be debunked in trial.  I don’t think any of them would care; they clearly have insurance company ‘protection’ ……..  At one point, O’Brien asked to be removed from the case and his report withdrawn……… since WC seems like the internet, once it is written, it never goes away………..they attempted alternative tactics…. via character assassination.  His findings contradict findings of all other doctors….. a jury might find it of interest, and defense knows it.
When current PTP, Dr. Bergey, was threatend re MPN status for trying to get me help, his office called me, advised me of same, and moved my scheduled appointment up a week so I could come in for my final appointment.  I think they insinuated that for business purposes they had no choice but to call me P & S, and release me.  You might imagine the content of my written response.  My next progress meeting was with Dr. Bergey directly, rather than PA, and his report was stronger  He seems to frown on being threatened by insurance carriers.   Smart guy who does not seem to be  easily intimidated.  He knew when I arrived at his office on 2/14/13 that I needed a brain doctor and it wasn’t him.  They have tried and failed valiantly trying to get me help.   The acupuncture and chiropractic I got this year was not their doings…it took a Court order.  :/   Yeah, unbelievable.  
If you decide to consider my case further, I have all the medical records and I am expecting SCRIPPS discharge report early next week…. I can email you anything I can find.
I don’t want to fool with this for years and years and  years like some of my FB buddies……….they count on that, don’t they?   Count me out….I’ll fight from the side, we do not…forget.

(4)     Any trials or findings by a work comp judge yet?  If so, who and at which WCAB office?

Judge Victor Jimenez has been the primary judge I have dealt with. I have had other Judges assigned to the case, but it always gets back to Jimenez.   Presiding Judge Sanford-Wachtel gave me his card and encouraged me to contact him if there are issues, after the first failure to provide requested ADA accommodations.   The Information & Assistance Officer, Valerie James, has been instrumental in ensuring failure to get medical care and has denied ADA accommodations and even confiscated my cell phone at one hearing; I filed an ADA complaint with DOJ.  EEOC called me and said the issues involved were more than two years ago, too bad

.

(5)     What treatment is authorized?  Any IMR determinations yet or in the works?  

Year one,2012:  they authorized, as mentioned on my blog, a little chiropractic and a couple clinical psychology sessions.

Year two, 2013 physical therapy and…. a couple MRI’s….

Year three….2014… by court order, a couple chiropractic and some acupuncture (helps a lot with brain and right shoulder…..the first set EXCLUDED BRAIN and authorized right limbs only ….knuckleheads….

[Scripps Brain Injury Day Treatment Center is generally a 154 day program; 16 days were authorized in August 2014 on appeals, and then 8 more days on more appeals….hardly a start to cognitive rehabilitation.  The cost was $50K + lodging.

My doctors had requested 3-6 months treatment…. 24 days is not reasonable and the interactive FEHA process for return to work was to begin during that course, but Wyndham refused to participate despite repeated requests that had already been paid for …. just wasted.]

More than $27,000 has been spent, properly submitted for reimbursements for medical miles and expenses for medically necessary treatments and evaluations such as MRI, Vision therapy, prism therapeutic lenses, chiropractic, acupuncture…. I have a summary sheet ……….have requested reimbursements many times, and have filed complaints with Audit Unit.

I have also filed complaints up and down the Coast.  They know my name in Sacramento and i have received some pretty nasty letters from the Assistant Medical Director suggesting I will never get medical treatment, so come to grips with that harsh reality.

Any IMR determinations yet or in the works?    I don’t know what that is, and I don’t know anything about how to close this up.  I think this has to do with PD ratings and things?   This is, I believe, where your expertise to set things up to make this finally right??

(6)     Are you getting SSDI, or have you applied for it?  If so, do you have an MSA?  What’s the amount?

I applied for Social Security Disability was denied a couple times, awaiting hearing now….I’m told it will be December January is…..  I’m told it will be retroactive and the SocSec office  broken the numbers down for me last year (I think it was last year) and said it would be retroactive from 6 months after injury and would put (last year) about $50K in my pocket, and about…. $1800/month.   A group called, “The Advocator”, somehow affiliated with my LTD carrier, is pushing the paper there.  On my task list is to get them medical records since last we talked.  Social security basically said they know I have a brain injury but it’s not bad enough to keep me from being a sales executive.  I think they mean no brains are required, or cognitive abilities.  Tsk.

Do you do Social Security??  Allegedly the Advocator will provide me with an attorney at the hearing, which causes me fear……I’m also told I can terminate contract with them and retain and attorney without liens.  My LTD income is a mess due to the financial chicanery of CNA/EDD and the ‘now we pay, now we don’t, now we do, change the amount’…. so I owe Matrix some paperwork to confirm when my benefits stopped so they can sort out if I owe them or they owe me.  That sort of paperwork boggles my brain….. I can type like there’s no tomorrow, but retrieval and recollection and visual scanning to edit are severe challenges.  I have a list somewhere of the various challenges and impairments, cuz I can never remember them all…… Muddling through life as best I can seems to be my “new normal”

SOCIAL SECURITY  FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL

I have long term disability insurance with Matrix/Reliance.   I have a neurology/psychiatry evaluation with one of their doctors on October 27…. a Dr. Jay Jurkowitz in…. I think Riverside or San Bernardino.

My next PTP Orthopedic Surgeon for my Brain Injury 45 day appointment is October 17 at 1 pm in Indio.

My next neuropsych appointment is next Monday.

David DePaolo is familiar with my….challenges, and I have explored possibilities of representation with multiple attorneys in CA… some bothered to consider and others abruptly put it in the “too hard” pile……  See WORK COMP AND BASEBALL OCT 2 2014…. IT MENTIONS MY SITUATION, AND THE SITUATIONS OF OTHER INJURED WORKERS:

http://daviddepaolo.blogspot.com/2014/10/work-comp-and-baseball.html

WORK COMP AND BASEBALL... BATTER UP!
WORK COMP AND BASEBALL… BATTER UP!

It is my hope to eventually (maybe now?) retain someone who can wrap it up, and to also ensure that the 4 attorneys who harmed me get little to nothing out of the “15% pot”…. and who ideally will, with encouragement, withdraw their liens.

If any of this may be of interest, and if you agree that submission of a “PROPOSAL FOR RESOLUTION” may be in order before I attempt for force my way back into a job I doubt I can do anymore, I willl find and send the spreadsheet of doctors and their specialities….

I live in Yucca Valley, near Joshua Tree National Park.  The WC case is in Riverside.   While I understand there has to be cause to move a case, I would be they would be glad to be rid  of me and let you move it to LA to get me gone.  They know that I know whose side they are  on.

If you are interested, and if you could be like the “general contractor” and organize with Nick and any other team players, I am sure that adequate funds could be created to make it financially attractive enough to deal with the mess.  I just want out…………  I would like $1.3 million and I would like to see these crooks tried, locked up and executed, in accordance with the laws.  I’m realistic enough to realize….. those who have the cash kills as they can, without consequences.  Fighting back one case at a time is an honorable fight, till last gasps.

If we jointly decide to work together, you might want to know a bit more about me…. I can take my hands off my WorkComp blog for a while, or I can amp it up…… I am open to suggestions and I get it that if I retain counsel, my right to speak out is limited, temporarily.

I also blog about Fukushima, an in progress extinction level event.  ASK ABOUT FUKUSHIMA NOW  http://askaboutfukushimanow.com/   LUCY OCCUPY SAYS  http://lucyoccupy.com/

I think it could be an “easy enough” deal with the work I have accomplished this past year…..getting to SCRIPPS, letting them know my number was $700K before SCRIPPS and that it’s $1.3 million now, based on what I have learned of long term medical needs and consequences of untreated brain injury and untreated rotator cuff tears.

Do you know [xxxx] the structure settlement guy?  I have been in touch with him several times.  We connected after the CAAA Winter Conference.  He thinks I’m a little hot headed…..  he may not like me, but he has observed me getting a few things done in spite of the odds.

I hear tales that you work around the clock…..  I learned at SCRIPPS about brain fatigue and reserves….   breaks are good for rebooting.

I will head home tomorrow…. coffee with some fellow activists in the  morning, so…. onward.

If you have an interest, I’m way open to your direction on how to move forward with RTW and accommodations requests.  They have cut my benefits off, so I’m back between a rock and hard place, and it snows a bit where I live, and I’m not willing to look for food banks or welfare offices again.  Once was more than enough.

image (1)

I also lost my “professional credentials”… my Hawaii real estate license, my California real estate borkers license, and my California Notary license, due to cognitive inability to take the continuing ed after paying nearly $1000 for special theraputic glasses and vision therapy, I was able to knock out the CA continuing ed for the broker’s license….that did expire.  I have to send them $450 to renew during the grace period; it’s a return to work license required, but I don’t have the $450 to spare with no income from these clowns.

I did have to file for early retirement (DOB 4/8/52)…. so I have pocket money and a will to survive.

linda-ayres_profile_qr

Thanks kindly for you consideration  Awaiting word from you.  I really want out  I intend to continue the good fight from the other side….. JAIL BREAK TIME……. HELP ME OUT OF HERE…………….These psychopaths are armed and extremely dangerous.  Yeah, I know.

GOVERNMENT BAD GUYS AND JAIL

    Thank you, David, personally and on behalf of #InjuredWorkers everywhere! ENCORE!!! ;D

    Official nominations forthcoming….

    We will also “think harder” on nominees for the upcoming Awards….and ask our friends, neighbors, doctors, therapists, legal peeps and social media buddies. It’s hard when so many of us are slogging through these WC War Zones.

    We will tell our friends and tell our neighbors about your blogs and insights, and encourage them to tell their friends and neighbors. WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW!
    #InjuredWorkersUniting #SilentNoMore

    PS There are more of us than most may think….across the nation, and around the world. We’ll ask a few more to check in here with brief details of their encounters with WorkComp….date of injury, treatment, medical care received or denied, represented or not, how many attorneys have touched the case, how many doctors, was there a return to work, were benefits paid, was failure to treat a reason for no RTW and shifting of burden to the State and to Social Security….

    Prior to my head injuries, #TBI, I was also a ‘Database Queen; and supported some very powerful Captains of Industry… I am horrified at what I have learned about the terrors and conduct of too many of the WC Insurance Industry, and I cannot sit/will not still for it.

    Even more horrifying is discovering how many people already know about the tragedies of WorkComp…. and did not tell, and do not tell, even those who could have made a difference in the lives of one or many.

    I was never too good at learned helplessness, or sitting down, shutting up, being quiet and polite in the face of bullying and worse…..

    “WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW”… I will volunteer to help any injured worker in America get their story in a concise readable format that we can share further, and perhaps call a truce between the Corporate WC Defense Teams and Battle Weary Injured Workers and work out a cease fire, and get Triage going for Injured Workers heading off to or already dying in the streets, having lost their health, jobs and homes.

    Let’s remember, Veterans are also in Our Protected class of disabled Americans. #StayOuttaTheStreets #ShelterInPlace #LoveOneAnotherLikeThere’sNoTomorrow…
