WorkComp – Updates on America’s Dirty OPEN SECRETs

Injured Workers’ Stories Are The Same

–the minor differences are names, body parts and case numbers – Ask a Doctor or Lawyer for confirmation

Ask Your Injured Friends and Neighbors, too!

“The reason you draw the reactions from these folks is not because you are being vilified, or because they have a disdain for the injured worker with a voice or any other malicious reason.”

“It is very simple – you offer nothing positive relative to change.”

“Anyone can complain. Few do anything to effectuate change.”

“Drawing attention to the negative, which you have done for the past several years, does nothing to further the conversation, offers no solutions, provides no road map.”

REALLY????

…It simply is not enough to complain. Everyone has a complaint. A complaint without a solution is bulls**t. You may as well just dig a hole and hide because no one is going to pay attention.

Everyone knows that bad sh*t happens in work comp and that there are profiteers off of the injured. That’s no secret.

So what are YOU going to do about it? …. Anonymous Industry Mouthpiece

The contempt and disdain that masks the dangers to Injured Workers by the industry profiteers is undeniable and sounds pretty darn dangerous, doesn’t it?

They ‘might be right.’

I wonder what if the 30,000 + viewers of AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com have any opinions on the foregoing statements?  If so, please tell me more at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

Watch for future issues of MyWorkCompCoach.com for strategies on how to deal with such interactions.  Remember remember Ghandi…

‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then…YOUR BLOG POSTS GO VIRAL!’  – or something like that, huh?   xooxoxo

I want to find a way to propose solutions to help Injured Workers escape the WC System with their lives.  The laws are unenforced and meaningless.

I have a collection of Injured Worker stories, most of whom prefer to be Anonymous.  Watch for them.  They include, but are not limited to, in progress tragedies apparently caused by Sedgwick and others.  Most have poor-to-no legal representation, advocacy, medical care or benefits.  Yes, in America! An AMERICAN DIRTY OPEN SECRET.

Too many lawyers just make stuff up to protect profits by any means necessary. The US Constitution is mocked by the WorkCompsters, and far worse, they get away with it.  You don’t look.  You don’t care. Till you’re stuck in the box car, heading for the death camps of WorkComp.  Enough is enough.

It will require teams of mediators and structured settlement people. Would you find that of any interest? Start with a plan to release all POW’s who have been in the WorkComp System 4 or more years…..within 12 months, with the help and supervision of the National Guard.

It requires “arming ” Injured Workers with the ability to blog and share their stories, heinous as most of them are.

I am also in the process creating a course for Injured Workers to empower them with Work Comp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills!  Watch for it!

I am wondering about the possibilities of a collaborative effort and ezine and possible Tele summit to unite voice of any good people in Workers Compensation with victims of WorkComp to lead legitimate national discussions “Of the People, By the People and For the People.”

I am one voice speaking on behalf of Injured Workers. There are a few of us.

Canadians and Australians seem more vocal about the same class atrocities. Perhaps they don’t fear their governments like so many American’s do?  Has our Constitution become so meaningless that an entire industry can profit by destroying a segment of the Working Class?   ‘When they come for you, there will be no one left to speak for you…’

Most injured workers are too terrified of the WorkCompsters and their legislated fraud and surveillance and threats, compounding denied medical care and benefits.  Doesn’t that truth make you shake your head and want to shout, “NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!!”

The Injured Worker stories are the same — minor differences are names, body parts, and case numbers.  The outcomes are much the same too…with degrees of further maligned health,  income and job losses, botched surgeries, risk/cost shifts to taxpayers via Social Security and prison systems, ETC.

Some experts insist that the best injured workers can hope for in America is social security disability and an early death.   Really, some industry investigative reporting from the dark side, huh?

Others suggest that the best American’s can hope for is a program to provide ‘food for the poor injured workers’ rather than LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR MEDICAL CARE AND BENEFITS, indictments from criminal conduct of the WorkCompsters, and the protection by the National Guard for extreme CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN EVERY STATE IN THE UNION.

NAZI HUNTER STES  5 4 2016

Congress didn’t offer assistance with food banks for poor tortured and abused Injured Workers.   Here’s the October 2015 letter where the ten signers clearly offer assistance, that could indeed come in the deployment of the National Guard, since State agencies also fail injured workers, nationally.

“….and whether added authorities are needed to better ensure that the interests of injured workers and taxpayers are protected.”

We say, keep your bags of surplus food out of the legal functioning of WorkComp…ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT ARE IN PLACE TO PROTECT INJURED WORKERS, AND INDICT THE OFFENDERS THAT READILY COMMIT FRAUD WITH INTENT TO DENY MEDICAL CARE, AND WORSE.

If the laws are unenforceable, then there is no choice but to immediately demolish the workers compensation systems and commence trials for the crimes being committed against every Injured Worker in America, and taxpayers, and employers and legitimate service providers.  You could be their next victim.

are we going to see YOUR shoes here

I am a work comp survivor, who was extremely unsuccessful in finding competent legal counsel.  Nevertheless, in pro per, ‘the parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.”  #BloggersSurviveWorkComp

Doctor and Lawyer pals advised to “get out of the workers comp system by any means necessary; it will kill you.”   Some later said that in their entire careers, they never saw anybody fight so hard to survive WorkComp.

One such ‘fan’ suggested that I create a ‘coaching program.’  From that simple encouragement, I began working on a new blog, MyWorkCompCoach.com and an eCourse, Surviving Work Comp and Virtual Combat Skills on Teachable.

Personal ‘rebranding’  post-WorkComp is difficult when hearing fresh horror stories, while being continuously assaulted by industry trolls and their ilk.  It can, however, be accomplished, with a little help from our friends.

I have been a strong advocate for the CompLaude Awards 2014-2015 and I used my resources to also share in the social media communities about the recent 2016 best blogs contest.

A search of the website, AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com results in pages of and pages of posts about the Comp Laude event.  Ditto for the ‘Best Blogs’ event.  Call it ‘drivel’ if they will.  Sticks and Stones…..

We also shared news of the Sedgwick Institute Linked in group, for what it’s worth, after reading weeks before of the mega-funded SEDGWICK INSTITUTE, allegedly established to investigate the ‘issues’ of WorkComp.  Search my blogs for further info.  Google it.

I blog extensively, to the best of my abilities, as I recover from Worker’s Compensation and brain injury.  My anti-nuclear efforts have suffered tremendously due to WorkComp battles, but it has helped to see the parallels between the ‘PROFITS BEFORE LIVES’ nuclear and insurance industries, and the ‘swaths’ of 21st Century Sonderkommando.

I live near Joshua Tree National Park in California, USA. I am much nicer than I may appear in my blogs, and while my ability to speak is still impaired and challenging, I can speak but written communications are much easier for me, post-injury. If you have a story to share, send it to me.  We Are The Media Now.

Please let me know if you think there might be mutual benefit in a discussion. I have several projects on the table and it seems that the industry has amped up their propaganda blitz in a feeble effort to neutralize or mitigate the truths exposed in the 2015 Insult to Injury / Demolition of Worker’s Compensation series.

“Injured Workers without a blog are Unarmed and Unprotected In The WarOnWorkers!  #WoW”

Here are the industry’s picks of the Best Blogs of 2016.  Note the absence of Injured Worker Representation.

They all seem tasked with a propaganda launch to attempt to mitigate the truths exposed in 2015 by ProPublica and NPR efforts that just exposed the tip of the iceberg.  They are apparently having a ‘secret’ national discussion in May…. we’ll see what comes of that, won’t we.  So far, not so good in the open-ness and transparency arenas.  Attacks on Injured Workers seem to be escalating, and tales of WC Nurses posing as employees at doctors offices have been reported to be threatening, intimidating and terrorizing injured workers at doctor’s appointments.  SMH…. thinking, ‘NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!’

InjuredWorkersUniting!  SilentNoMore!

Share the link.  We’ll create another directory with Injured Worker reviews of the accuracy of their content, in due course.

Follow them all, and search their sites to see which ones actually bother to report on WorkComp Fraud legitimately…. the carriers seem to have the most indictments, and employees weigh in at less than 1%.  Follow that money trail.

JOIN IN THE DISCUSSIONS ON LINKEDIN.…  and tell your friends and neighbors; your governments already know.

You might also peruse these blogs for some potentially inspiring thoughts for actions….  “It takes a village.”

Sedgwick Institute – Linked In Group — Are YOU In? LinkedIn or Facebook — WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? Let’s see!

 

Will other WorkComp Thought Leaders Follow with More Groups embracing Injured Workers and Taxpayers?

Linda Ayres commented on this  

[on LinkedIn, for those of you unfamiliar with the platform…it’s much like Facebook and Twitter]

Linda Ayres

Hey! Did you read this yet? Did you join the “Sedgwick Institute” on linked in yet? C’mon, let’s go! The May WorkComp National Discussions are about ready to begin. Here’s my take on it: https://lnkd.in/bR8785Y

What’s YOURS? I will check with Jonathan Mast to see if they will be having a Facebook “Sedgwick Institute” group, I think perhaps a “SI – VENTING ROOM” could prep more Injured Workers to join a mixed group. #TTFN

[In the meantime, we can use a FB public – group place holder at Occupy WorkComp to start organizing and blogging support]

  1. Linda Ayres

    There are only 20 people in the group so far. C’mon. You have something to say? There’s your open door! Carpe Diem! #Blog4Freedom, Life, Liberty and Justice for All! It’s time to restore Civil Rights and Human Rights to Injured Workers NOW.  show less

  2. Linda Ayres

    MyWorkCompCoach.com says “…If you’re an Injured Worker without a blog, you are Unarmed in the War Against Workers. You may be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and have to add that diagnosis to your list….”  show less

  3. Fonzseau Darren

    I put my request in. Will see.

  4. Linda Ayres

    Yaaaaay Fonzseau Darren! The “Sedgwick Institute” LI Group was 13 members when I joined, and it’s up to 33 now. I don’t imagine that Jonathan Mast or their team of administrators watch it like Hawkes, so let’s hope tomorrow it will reach at least 100 and keep growing.

    We’ll see if Jonathan and team are planning on a FB “Sedgwick Institute – FB Group” of similar guidelines and intention. We can help them build it!

    If so, Injured Workers might be able to create a complimentary group called something like “Si – Injured Workers Venting Room” so Injured Workers can do an unbridled brain dump, to facilitate more facts. ONWARD! We Are The Media Now!

  5. Linda Ayres

    We, who are outside of the system now, could then collectively help re-write the issues without the emotions that go with being a WorkComp Victim, and the related PTSD and [OPIATE] druggings – so that more SIMPLE FACTS can be presented in the SEDGWICK INSTITUTE GROUPS, to be elevated to their actual “Institute” of “INDUSTRY THOUGHT LEADERS”

    We might find some social workers, paralegals and nurses and doctors and lawyers to help us review and re frame the stories so that the “Thought Leaders” can grasp the content. I’m looking for some now. Keep your eyes open, too!

  6. Linda Ayres

    I know Bob Wilson ‘s May ‘National WorkComp Discussions’ does not (yet) embrace Injured Workers input, but maybe he will be inspired by the direction of the Sedgwick Institute Open forums and LinkedIn group.

    Maybe David David DePaolo‘s WorkComp Central will also create a FB group for Injured Workers to help, and then maybe Bob will see the value in Injured Worker Input.

    Maybe Joseph Paduda, Barry Thompson,  Richard FinePeter Rousmaniere, Art Wilcox, Roberto CenicerosThomas F. Martin, Alan Gurvey and others will lend some energy to getting more items on the discussion tables.

  7. Linda Ayres

    Hey! Here’s a thought! Maybe a joint invitation letter from the WC Industry Thought Leaders TO Injured Workers & Taxpayers could open those doors to further discussions, sort of like the letter from Congress to the DOL Secretary.

    EINSTEIN IF I WERE TO REMAIN SILENT

    Of course, investigative reporters would be naturals in such a discussion group, if the intent is to get the truth on the table and identify real problems and create real transformations and resolutions. I still think teams of Mediators and Structured Settlement peeps is a good next step, for any case over 4 years old, particularly if it’s a back or brain injury… w/limits on how long cases can drag on and on.  show less

    PS For any LinkedIn peeps also on alternative social media, Facebook, I’m regularly censored from posting in groups, even my own, but I do have access to my pages and events.

    fb censored blocked again from groups 4 27 2016 1143 am   CENSORED FB 4 27 2016 1129 AM

    Let’s connect over there…..We will do what we can to get some serious thinkers to join the Sedgwick Institute linked in group, and any new groups thought leaders open up to embrace injured workers. After all, the though leaders have businesses to ‘lead’ ALL BECAUSE SOMEBODY GOT HURT AT WORK. Let’s all get along and work on solutions now. Thanks

  9. Linda Ayres

    How to find me on FB, and yes, it’s another long story… for another time. The page is “shared” with Lucy Occupy, because she has no papers to show to the FB thought police. https://www.facebook.com/LucyOccupy.311 so after lock outs, the compromise was to share profile space with LucyOccupy — she has her own page though…. and is known and loved in the real anti-nuclear communities — since 2011. show less

With a nudge from DOL and DOJ, per the Congressional letter of October 2015, maybe the DAs can do a better job in 2016. Kudos for what they did do. They must do more. A hotline for Injured Workers to report suspected fraud could save millions….lives and dollars.

I received an inquiry from an investigative reporter in the UK…. topic? MAXIMUS. I suggested they will be busy writing investigative reports….likely for YEARS AND YEARS. I asked for a link to the documentary when it is done. I said it might save lives in the USA.

Does America have any Civil Rights attorneys anymore?





 

Injured Workers in CA seeking new legal counsel – Orange County and San Diego

CAN YOU RECOMMEND COUNSEL FOR INJURED WORKERS FIGHTING FOR LIFE WITH SEDGWICK IN California and/or Minnesota? Or a Mediator with successful fights for Injured Workers against Sedgwick?

As an Injured Worker and blogger with a case that reached resolution with quite little thanks to CAAA members, Injured Workers are reaching out to me for help.

lisa and bart the whole damn system is wrong

 

All I can basically tell them is “blog like hell, and scream like your life depends on it, because it does.” And I can pass on advice given to my by doctors and lawyers, “Get out of the work comp system as fast as you can, by any means necessary. It will kill you.” Yeah, doctors and lawyers told me that, WorkComp doctors and lawyers. Can’t make that stuff up!

I had been invited to the CAAA 50th Anniversary dinner this coming Saturday, but the CAAA office staff made if quite clear, with great contempt and disdain, that INJURED WORKERS ARE NOT WELCOME and the registration was apparently lost, just like so many medical records in the WorkComp systems.. Alrighty then, when one thing doesn’t work, we do other things.

mlk hitler germanyCAN YOU REFER ANYBODY WITH ANY SUCCESS REPRESENTING INJURED WORKERS AGAINST SEDGWICK IN CALIFORNIA?

Charles Romano Trust google search 1 21 2016

Today I received another call from a woman in her mid-40’s, a case eerily similar to the Charles Romano case. It is over 20 years old, and has gone from bad to worse. In recent weeks, I have been in communication with the family of a woman in her 40’s, eerily similar to the Charles Romano case.

Since I am unable to attend the #CAAA conference this week to hear Alan Gurvey’s “PUBLIC FORUM” on medical treatment for Injured Workers, and David DePaolo, Tom Martin and Keith More on The ProPublica/NPR Investigative Reports: Affecting change, I can meet with one of the the Sedgwick victims and show her and her husband how to blog. I may meet with the others via Skype and show them how to blog.

#WoW…. it’s indeed a War On Workers. It’s horrifying to listen to the tales of younger workers being maimed and their lives destroyed for the profit and greed and psychopathY of the few. They have been taught to blame Arnold. What a deception. It’s much deeper than any one politician. There truly seems to be little hope for the American working class.

Let’s see what, if anything, comes out of the CAAA convention…

I hope the gentlemen handling the panel on ProPublica and The Demolition of Workers Compensation discussions GIVE ‘EM HELL.

I don’t think David, Tom and Keith will sugar coat the horrors they are fully cognizant of in the California system.

Let’s hope next convention they open the doors to Injured Workers, whom they allege to represent. (The privilege I had in 2014 to visit in the CAAA Winter Convention Exhibit Hall… may have saved my life. I did meet some wonderful and powerful people of goodwill. Too bad no other injured workers will get that opportunity, at least not via CAAA.)

I think all providers need to do a survey of Injured Worker clients to get a reality check on ‘SATISFACTION” levels.

CALIFORNIA WINS AT #WORKCOMP AGAIN!

“The top six of our top ten fraud cases of 2015 are from California, a perennnial offender.”

Tip of the iceberg, huh? DA’s offices under funded and understaffed to deal with the real numbers, but it’s a start, huh?

IMHO, CAAA has nothing at all to ‘celebrate’ as long as injured workers are being maimed and killed by legislated and supported fraud. Maybe they should create a self-help training course for self-represented Injured Workers…. more lives might be spared.

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.

Nevertheless, they need competent legal representation. Can you recommend anybody in Orange County/ San Diego areas who can take over currently represented cases that have had the same attorney (respectively) for more than 20 years? The “2-attorney-rule” does not apply, so these Injured Workers must make a smart decision if they decide upon change.

If you know of someone, please comment below or send me an email at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com.

It’s time to RESTORE CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS TO INJURED WORKERS NOW, wouldn’t you agree?

Thank you for your consideration. Several of you are quite familiar with my case, my blogs, and that we reached resolution. Some suggest I shrug, and turn my back on my fellow Americans still in the WorkComp system.

I’m fighting the good fight, and I will expose those fake injured workers, in due time….

questions and answers complicated and simple

How many unclean hands do how many such ‘negotiated discounts’ pass through for the ultimate profit and bottom line of insurance carriers across America doing nothing but maiming and permanently disabling injured workers, cheating remaining legitimate WorkComp providers out of their fees, while supporting operations of sonderkommando type doctors willing to write fraudulent reports on behalf of their benefactors?

BRAIN INJURY ADVOCACY GROUP

There is no mechanism in America’s workers comp system for Injured Workers to report Doctor, Attorney, Provider and Employer Fraud.  DA only goes after groups like “Hell’s Angels” …..for what, cutting into the WorkCompster Drug Trafficking?

FUKITOL

D’oh!  At least the HAs are honest about their motives and practices of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.   Very few peeps in WorkComp can claim such honesty.

.

Why would a doctor prescribe a stomach drug for a brain injury survivor and why would a doctor prescribe an expensive creme for brain injury survivor, or why would a doctor prescribe (and mail without knowledge) a hand held ultra-sound device, without instructions for which brain lobe to use it on?  That’s WorkersCompensation.

My Fellow Americans.  Boomers!  Heads up!  The younger people do not have a chance in hell to survive American’s WorkComp rackets!   Mamas!  Don’t let your babies be doctors and lawyers and thugs!  #SOS!  #CommitteesOfBloggers needed ASAP!  #WATMN

.

Why would a doctor prescribe an ‘epilepsy medication with mood elevators as a precaution for a few years’ for a slip and fall head injury, after a 5 minute meet and greet?

,

The more conservative, well-paid industry leased/owned WorkCompsters will prescribe ‘over the counter analgesics’ for brain injury, and some that, in the 60’s would have been categorized as “MCPs,” shrug and indicate that a woman over the age of 35 is not entitled to medical care for a brain injury, particularly after medical has been denied by the carrier for more than 2 years.

Years ago I asked an ol’ Sicilian Godfather type character, “Will you tell me, please, what is the secret to making lots of money?”  He said, “I will tell you.  It is very simple.  You find a need, then you fill it.”

What I have discovered about the majority of the members of the California Applicant Attorney’s Association membership is that they are generally burnt out, angry, disgruntled, overworked, screwed out of a decent wage by the chicanery of the Defense firms, and the end result is more casualties in the American Work Force. I’ve talked with plenty of you, from here to Northern California.  Most of you have been polite and cordial, but compassion is a rare quality in your ilk, isn’t it?

In my case, people say, ‘Oh.  She had 4 attorneys.  She must be hard to work with.’  BLAME THE VICTIM, THAT’S HOW YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?

Because the majority of CAAA attorneys seem impotent in the Art of Negotiation, and seem to feel condemned to working for what probably figures out to be about $10.00 an hour?   The end result is badly managed work comp cases, workers that don’t get medical care, and as one of the four retained and dismissed in my case advised:

“Most of my clients don’t get medical care, they lose their jobs and their homes; it’s just how it is.”  

That one attempted to coerce me to accept a premature settlement offer for a 1/9/12 brain injury for the ol’ $100,000, less legal fees, in November 2012, without benefit of having seen the specialist doctors recommended repeatedly, and denied not by UR but by the adjuster and the defense counsel.

.

He advised that, “Nobody will believe you have a brain injury. Work comp is a small community….”   I told him I was injured not stupid and that if nobody would believe it  was only because he didn’t do his job and get me to brain injury doctors, as repeatedly recommended by all the evaluating doctors I had been sent to.  How much money did the approximately 40 evaluating doctors plus CorVel & Maximus peeps make off my life so far?  How much do the defense attorneys make by continuously harming me?  And how about those adjusters and their fraud department that backs them up?

I’ve spent close to $50,000 on medical expenses trying to Survive WorkComp, and to clean up the legal messes CREATED BY YOUR MEMBERS, and have lost professional credentials and earning capacity, and I haven’t worked since 1/9/12.  Just because I can type doesn’t mean my brain injury healed on the rest and wait and wait and wait and wait CNA plan.

If CAAA members learned a bit about negotiations, they might find it reasonable to find alternatives to scavenger, bottom feeder type holds with liens when prior counsel has done nothing but harm the injured worker by doing a poor job, or no job at all.

One  attorney’s I retained, when I advised his office they were being retained because the defense has a nasty pattern and practice of omitting hundreds of pages of medical records with intent (and success) to deny medical care, I was assured I would not be sent to any evaluations until the matter was resolved.  Was that ever a whopper, committed by non-supervised “case manager’ practicing law without a license, another pattern similar to the QME/AME  doctor reports written not by the doctors, but by the non-medical staff.

y u no see lies so obvious lies

Then, in writing, he battered me and accused me of desperately needing mental health care, and arrogantly stated that “There is no conspiracy to omit medical records in your case.”  He sent me to a very dubious AME eval, without medical records, and I am still paying for his incompetence.  By the way, it took nearly 8 hours in Court to get the Judge to order the Defense to send the omitted records to the two involved doctors (of the time) and to request a supplemental report.  Well, she sent them all right, not separately, not identified, but just in a new disorganized box and suggested the doctor find them and see if they made any difference in the conclusions. Then she did it again with the next QME, in December 2013. That’s 2 attorneys and highlights of their arrogance and incompetence.

The first one hardly counts, as it was not an attorney at all, it was a 60 second meet and greet with the attorney, then turned over to the Office Manager, who chanted, “There is no psych component to a WorkComp case” and promptly (next day) had me scheduled with an Orthopedic Surgeon on El Paseo in Palm Desert — FOR A BRAIN INJURY.   I got lost trying to find the front door, and entered through the employee entrance in the back — nobody but me found that odd.    The last one, rather than read the files I sent, and deal with the mess created by #3, merely agreed to yet another Orthopedic evaluation in late 2013.

Primary treating doctor has been an Orthopedic Surgeon (from 2/2013 through 12/2014 — I have had NO PTP since 12/2014—hardly matters, as there has been little-to-no care, just excessive evaluation upon evaluation, in true WorkComp Gravy Train fashion.

That’s 4 attorneys — #1 for 30 days in 2012, #2 for 9 months in 2012, #3 for 90 days in 2013 and #4 for 45 days in 2013/2014.  When I have asked them to release their liens so that I can find an attorney to help me, they just say no.

The office of #3, in an attempt to console me, said, “Oh, it makes no difference to you that he won’t release the lien  You get the same in any event.  It doesn’t matter if you have 1 or 5 or 10 attorneys, they divide up the 15%.”  I said, but you don’t understand, each of the 4 did more harm to me than the other, and I have a brain injury, and I can’t figure this crap out, there’s no integrity, fraud is NOT prosecuted, and the defense just makes stuff up and the WCAB supports it, and I can’t find competent counsel to represent me.

I’ve been told everything from “there’s no money in it” “previous attorneys didn’t do their job”  “the medical records were not properly developed” “there’s too much fraud—it’s over my head” “you’ve already had 1 attorney”  “you’ve already had 2 attorneys”  “you’ve already had 3 attorneys”  “you’ve already have 4 attorneys”  “nobody will be #5”

I asked one Judge to authorize me to pay someone hourly to help me. I can’t even find legal aid or a paralegal to help me. It seems that the WorkComp rackets have everything locked down.  There are even federally funded brain injury advocacy groups THAT REFUSE TO HELP AN AMERICAN WITH BRAIN INJURY IF THE INJURY HAPPENED AT WORK!

I have a brain injury plus it’s work comp.  The Information and Assistance office has clearly given me erroneous information SINCE FIRST MEETING IN 2012, and badgered me, abused me, violated ADA and civil rights,  and made it quite whose side she works for.  In Injured Worker circles, the experience of most I & A Officers is the same, so I don’t take it personally.  But, know that when you tell injured workers to see the I & A officer, you’re condemning them to more harm, and your credibility is further reduced.

THE BRAIN INJURY HANDBOOK

WHAT IS A SOLUTION?

I tell you this because it’s identifying a need, that you can fill, and I can only scream about.  Your industry vendors are even afraid to work with/for an Injured Worker, in Pro Per.  Your industry doctors, playing hot shot, even return properly served medical records and threaten to sue an injured worker for daring to properly send such documents. Your vendors make it clear that they only take directions from “the adjuster” or  “The Defense”.

I even asked at WCAB for a list of possible attorneys in 2013.  I found one who answered his own phone.  Trouble is, he no longer works for injured workers.  He works for The Defense.  I got quiet and asked, “Tell me, why did you go to the Dark Side?”” He got quiet and said, “Because that’s where the money is.”

So, for starters, if you are approached by an injured worker with a brain injury, if you know nothing about brain injury, give them immediately a letter of non-engagement, and a referral if you can.

Then, set up some training sessions for your members for negotiations, and start with studies of Psychopaths…ie. DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATH.  It will help your members understand the Defense, and may reveal similar traits that may cause them to just head over to the Dark Side.

Watch it again, and tell your friends and neighbors.

Then, in each of your offices, set up an InProPer division, or something similar, with a Paralegal component, and an hourly fee, with a provision to take over the case when attorney liens are withdrawn.

DO SOMETHING TO HELP CLEAN UP THE MESS THAT YOUR INCOMPETENT COLLEAGUES CREATE, AND GET THEIR FANGS OUT OF THE LIENS THAT RESULT TO NOTHING FOR ANYBODY.

OH YEAH, OPEN YOUR FANCY CONFERENCES TO INJURED WORKERS, PARTICULARLY YOUR EXHIBIT HALLS.  IF YOU WON’T REPRESENT US, HELP US FIND THE RESOURCES TO REPRESENT OURSELVES.

Do some client follow up…… you may find gross dissatisfaction with your industry by injured workers and doctors.  You can blame injured workers all day long for your own shortcomings, but…in the end, you know the truth.

I will never forget the attorney who called me back around 8 o’clock one evening, screaming and swearing that he was working so late, and when I explained my case, to the best of my abilities, he called me “one of those work comp pariahs” and that he knew the defense counsel.  He assured me that ‘fraud’ was not a possibility; “incompetence, yes, but she is not capable of fraud”…. (That was his opinion; evidence points in the other direction.)

GIVE IT SOME THOUGHT…… IF YOU CAN’T HELP INJURED WORKERS, EITHER FIND SOME WAYS TO HELP THE IN PRO PER POPULATION, OR BE ASSURED, WE WILL DO ALL WE CAN TO GET YOU OUT OF THE EQUATIONS TOTALLY, and FIND WAYS TO HOLD YOU AND YOURS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE HARM YOU CAUSE TO THE INJURED WORKER POPULATIONS IN CALIFORNIA, AND YOUR COLLEAGUES IN ALL STATES OF THE UNION.

CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

LIONS  SURROUND YOURSELF    find the others

Look for the In Pro Per OBJECTION TO A FRIVOLOUS ORDER TO COMPEL ……COMING UP THIS WEEK….
