Subject: VOICE MAIL RE: LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE CNA 33269102WE – COASTLINE LODGING, SSA RECORD OF PAYMENTS, MEDIATION  (Fred Sachs voice mail)
TBI END THE SILENCE
Hi Fred, Stewart, Tina and Michael and Shane:
.
People keep telling me not to take these atrocities personally, that CNA is doing this to all injured workers.  They say the law allows it.  I don’t think so.  Fraud is a felony, that means it’s against the law.

Anyhow, attached is a voice mail message with Fred Sachs.

IF you guys can organize comp rooms at the Ramada Inn-Newport Beach on Superior Avenue, starting next week, I still have a chance to resume Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program.  Without such help, I cannot return.   I’m not asking for an advance on anything because the $5,000 you provided in January to pay for lodging,  Matrix called it “income” and says it gets ‘subrogated’ and I am paying that back to them.  I tried to explain that it for treatment, so in essence, you gave Matrix $5k, not me, I was apparently just the intermediary.   I hope that doesn’t make me complicit in some sort of insurance con-job. Yikes. So, Tina Jordan or Michael Doughtery may be able to provide lodging so I can return to Coastine and you can figure out how to pay.

.
Without Coastline, I would have to say you have succeeded in fully destroying my life.  I know you don’t care, Shane Reideman made that very clear last fall when he called and asked me, “Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”
.
.
So, are we going to mediate with Judge Siemers?  I understand he is the only Judge who can deal with a case of this complexity?
.
If I’m not going back to Coastline, we can mediate with Judge Simers any time.  Looks like I have the rest of my shortened life span to fool with Workers Compensation, and perhaps make a difference to my fellow Americans.  If not, I die trying, huh? (Shane, happy now?)
.
I told the intermediary that I don’t fly,[radiation levels way too high, if you read the news] but I could drive to SFO (would need a rental car, per diem, and lodging) but that would be my compromise, or perhaps the Judge come to Los Angeles.  His CV is outstanding.  I might be able to trust him.
.
I need the CNA list of what has been paid to me.  I’m almost out of time to appeal their demand for a return of more money than even they gave me.  They have edited their calculations a few times. Le’s find out where that allegedly monthly payment of approximately $4,000 since May 2014 has been diverted to? (Shane, is that the type of fraud your department handles??)  Would you believe they even sent the initial retro-pay to a dead back account, even though my SSA retirement money had been coming to a different account for over a year?  The Treasury agent found that of extreme interest.
.
OK, let me know where we are.
.
Have a great day, and “Dodge those Rads – It’s Dangerous Out There!”
Sincerely,
LINDA AYRES, IN PRO PER
WWID 415287
go save yourself from the zombies .

ps… So, if the below is true, then there is some validity to the CNA rest and rest and rest and rest and wait and wait and wait approach to ‘treating’ a traumatic brain injury for more than 3 years 7 months, huh?  No wonder I wake up ready to take on the world for the first hour or two of the day.!  Thanks guys and gals!

.
C’mon, I want out of WorkComp, I want the 15% legal fees to be donated to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Foundation, and I want a reasonable settlement to enable me to forget I ever crossed paths with any of you  Oh, yes, I want some sort of restitution program by Wyndham/CNA/Grancell to ensure they never have the opportunity to harm another injured worker like this again.   Maybe I can be on the Board of Directors of such an organization.
.
Stewart, can you have someone look into setting something like that up?  Thanks.  No rush, looks like we’re going no where toward settlement, so there’s time…. since no treatment cut my life span by more than the 8 initials years estimated by the Brain Injury Association of America, looks like we have maybe another 10 or 15 to use the media to make a difference in America?  We’ll, let’s try.  COUNT ON ME to do my part!
.
Have a great day, Everybody.  I have no place to be…oh ohhhhhhhhhh…. the piano tuner is coming today.  I read that playing the piano is supposed to help with brain recovery so as Stewart and Fred know, I bought a piano last year, or maybe 2013, I don’t remember.  I didn’t realize, at the time, I had to learn to play it for it to be effective.  A local piano teacher had me is some very simple VERY SIMPLE VERY SMALL CHILDREN’S BOOK.  She was kind, but aghast at my cognitive impairments.  Most of the kids she teaches start with two very simple books.  We had to break it down to just one book for me.  I guess if I don’t really get to return to Coastline, piano lessons are back on the agenda.
.
Fred, wanna pay for them?  There’s also a company called LearningRx…  There’s help out there for people with brain injuries, I just don’t know how Thomas Motamed can run an organization with people in the dark ages about something as simple as NEURO-SCIENCE.  He takes in $10.7 million plus a year for harming people like me? Yecccch.   At least at Grancell, peeps get “Bagel Fridays” and at Wyndham, well, if you’re on the A-list, you get credit-worthy tours.  It all comes out in the wash, doesn’t it.
.
Ooooops, that was not intended to refer to ‘money laundering’ that seems to be a part of the workcomp biz models!  People tell me to refrain from slinging around words like felony fraud, RICO, corruption….   I don’t swear half as much as I used to…swearing is another consequence of brain injuries.  Shane, remember how I ended our Fall 2014 conversation, when you asked, “Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”  Yeah, that F**k YOU! was a knee jerk reaction due to TBI.

Ask About Brain Injury and WorkComp Survival Now 

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

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

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

flag distress signal

WorkComp Law….and Atrocities…

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

“…when ARE you going to die?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Work Comp  TBI Wyndham and YOU

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

 

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

wpid-img_20141113_185828.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

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

wc CLAIM DENIED

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

'CHURN THAT BILL BABY

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

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

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

Dear Linda:

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

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

Hi Tina

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MOST SINCERELY,
LINDA AYRES, IN PRO PER

COMP LAUDE AWARDS

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

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

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

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

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

Have a nice weekend. Think Think think.  Thanks.

What kind of company would say an injured worker over the age of 35 is not entitled to medically necessary treatments for a witnessed slip and fall and head trauma more than 2 years and 6 months ago?  They won’t let the #InjuredWorker return to work so that real insurance benefits can be obtained in order to procure necessary medical, they refuse to reimburse more than $25,272.00 is medical expenses and miles paid out of pocket, they have illegally terminated temporary disability benefits more than once, in acts of extreme financial terrorism, and now they want another Orthopedic Surgeon to evaluate, although they ignored all prior and current recommendations for multiple Orthopedic Surgeons for immediate orthopedic treatments as well as urgently needed medical care for Traumatic Brain Injury.
How they do one thing is how they do everything, isn’t it?

LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE   ADJ8181903    NEGLIGENCE, BAD FAITH AND REFUSAL OF EMPLOYER TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE REASONABLE AND APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE, SINCE DATE OF INJURY, JANUARY 9, 2012, WITH FURTHE BAD FAITH ACTIONS CAUSING IRREPARABLE HARM TO INJURED WORKER.

[a friend, A RETIRE NURSE, helped organize these facts, without the emotional ‘charge’ around them.]

No head injury is too severe to despair of,
nor too trivial to ignore
-Hippocrates 400 BCE

Date of Injury:  January 9, 2012, approximately 8 a.m.

Injured Worker: Linda Ayres, TimeShare Sales Executive –

Vacation Ownership Sales, Real Estate Broker

Claim #: CNA e3269102     WC #:  ADJ8181903

 

A witnessed slip and fall with loss of consciousness at work.  Able to stand with assistance.  Complained of feeling “dazed and confused”.  Also, c/o headache and pain in back of head, neck, back and right ankle.  Was neither advised nor offered a ride to seek medical treatment by sales manager who had witnessed the fall and assisted with getting up off the snow covered ground.

 One unfortunate event led to another unfortunate event, which led to a series of unfortunate events with wrong dates, doctors, omitted records and misinformation and inconsistencies with misrepresentations.  The harm caused to the injured worker by these unfortunate events is irreparable.

She continued with “usual work” (sales meeting followed by sales presentation) with above symptoms, including severe confusion, until approximately 10 am, when administrative manager approached with work comp form stating “you can see any doctor that takes work comp insurance”even though the form had no insurance information on it.  Again, she was not offered a ride to the Emergency Room nor was she advised to seek immediate medical treatment.  She continued with above S/S, including confusion and dizziness.  She left work at approximately 2 pm, (approximately 6 hours post fall) with her manager’s knowledge of an approximate 1 hour drive home – 20 miles down steep snowy mountain road, 40 miles of flat desert road.

 

She continued with headache, confusion, dizziness, head, neck back and right ankle pain.  She drove directly to the chiropractor who had been seeing her periodically (every 1-2 months) for maintenance.  Upon arrival, the office staff commented on her state of confusion and general “dazed” appearance.  She informed the chiropractor about the slip and fall at work, her LOC and immediate and persistent pain, headache, confusion and dizziness.

 

The doctor’s office attempted to contact her employer for needed information regarding a work comp claim.  Messages were left but employer did not return calls.  (See email from Dr. Whitlock to Daniel Elliott dated Tuesday, 2-28-12, CNA Adjuster, and return email authorizing more chiropractic visits #14)

 

1-11-12 injured worker presented self to Avalon Urgent Care due to increase in confusion  and pain and headaches.  (See 1st Report of Occupational Injury).

 

Injured worker was not contacted by employer for follow up.  Not given a list of MPN authorized providers.

Was given an incomplete Work Comp form filled out by employer.  Personal health insurance (CIGNA) billed for Work Comp by Avalon Urgent care due to lack of infomration on Work Comp DWC-1 form.  Attempted authorization by Urgent Care.  No response from emkployer or Work Comp Insurance.  Injured worker had to pay out of pocket for co-pay and medical tests including Xrays (request for MRI).  This office was not a member of alleged MPN at the teime, but apparently later became a member.

 

On 1-11-12 injured worker contacted EAP provided by employer due to continued confusion and concern thereof.  Continued lack of support by employer.  She continued to update employer  No authorization for medical treatment.

On 1-13-12, Injured worker was seen by Dr. Daniel DeGoede, Clinical Psychologist,  referred by employer EAP (Employee Assistance Program).  See handwritten referral dated 1/13/12 from Dr. DeGoede  to Dr. Esmael Sebti, Neurologist for scheduled appointment on 2/7/12.  Was refused evaluation and referral when appearing for appointment by Dr. Sepbti due to non acceptance of work comp patients.  It was later discovered that this doctor’s two offices were a part of the alleged MPN network.

 

On 1-21-12 Retained attorney due to lack of medical treatment and appropriate authorizatin for treatment of head injury and was scheduled for an appointment on the next day by the law office with an Orthopedic Surgeon. Dismissed law firm with cause shortly thereafter, at the recommendation of a retired Judge, and worked directly, in-pro-per,  with Adjuster to coordinate a team of providers, with Dr. DeGoede, Clinical Psychologist as lead doctor and designated PTP.

 

On 2-4-12, sustained further injuries after two falls at home from LOC due to head injury on 1-9-12 with undetermined periods of loss of consciousness, suspected to be less than 30 minutes each, but unknown.  (See attached Hi-Desert Hospital ER report of Dr. Lambros, NO EEG DONE.

On 2-6-12  MRI Brain (one month post initial injury, 2 days post subsequent 2-4-12 injuries).  MRI not authorized by WorkComp Carrier even though it was recommended by 1st treating doctor in Urgent Care prior to subsequent fall on 2-4-12.   The MRI WAS authorized by employee health care provider, CIGNA, with a large co-pay due at time of MRI.

On 2-22-12, Authorized referral (non-MPN) to Dr. Eileen Kang, Neuropsychologist, by Dr. Daniel DeGoede, Clinical Psychologist (EAP referral, and ultimately authorized (non-MPN) at PTP.  Dr. Kang performed a battery of neuro-psychological tests and recommendations for further treatment were ignored by insurance carrier.

On 3-6-12, was referred by office of Dr. Kang  to Dr. Stephen Waldman, Neurologist  (2 hour drive from home; non-MPN provider, no TBI expertise; field of expertise epilepsy and fybromyalgia)  after several failed attempts to find a neurologist on the alleged MPN list.   Without medical evidence, Dr. Waldman recommended ‘precautionary epilepsy medications with mood elevator’ and attempted to have driver’s license revoked for decline of offer of unfounded medications.  A second neurologist was requested, but denied by carrier.

 

In March 2012, was referred to another  attorney, who was retained until November 2012 .

On 4-23-12, was then referred, again by another attorney, to a clinical psychologist, Dr. Marcel Ponton, in Pasadena (3 hours from home) who’s colleague, Dr. Gunn, re-administered a similar battery of neuro-psychological tests and recommendations for further treatment and evaluations were ignored by insurance carrier and in fact, TTD benefits were terminated on 4/30/12 in bad-faith action by carrier.

Dr. Marcel Ponton then referred injured worker to a second Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Kahlid Ahmed for a second consultation, and to a physiatrist, Dr. David Patterson, Medical Director at Casa Colina Rehabilitation Centers, for DMV eval to disprove Dr. Waldman request to revoke driver’s license.    Recommendations for further treatment and evaluations were ignored by insurance carrier.

Dr. Hilda Chalgujian, Forensic Neuropsychologist: May 2014 –

‘…recommend this patient be monitored neurologically in light of the above-noted cognitive issues; patient will benefit from a neurologist with experience int he treatment of traumatic brain injury; … recommend patient continue with individual therapy to help develop better insight into her functioning and increase her coping skills, and minimize external stressor;… supportive individual psychotherapy will help her develop strategies to help her…;  recommend she receive speech therapy to directly address her current difficulties with communication, including verbal fluency, as well as attentional issues…; recommend she is evaluated and monitored by a neuro-ophthalmologist to assess her ongoing and longstanding complaints of impaired vision, and explore vision therapy…; she may also benefit from occupational therapy to address ongoing visual concerns; this treatment should also address how to best compensate for situations that would be most relevant for her return to work in the future; …defer to her treating physician for her physical therapies; she should be re-evaluated in six months following her treatment regimen to assess her permanent and stationary status….’

 

ALL IN ALL, TO DATE, SHE HAS SEEN:

 

34 specialists, and has had 2 MRI of the head, one of the Cervical Neck, and one of the Right Shoulder.  Several of the doctors were referred by attorneys, her legal representation or by treating doctors.

 

She has been seen by neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrist, neuro-optometrists, neuropsychologists, physiatrist, 4 orthopedic surgeons, multiple therapies, including speech, physical for neck, acupuncture, vision and cognitive rehabilitation evaluation (please refer to attached list)

 

Retained and dismissed 4 attorneys due to incompatible goals; Injured worker has been represented approximately 14 months out of the 2 years 5 months since date of injury.   Each attorney did increasingly greater harm compounded by further failures to facilitate medical treatment than prior representatives.

 

The most care/evaluations were authorized when injured worker was in-pro-per after dismissing law firm #1. (Treatment with Dr. DeGoede, Dr. Kang and Dr. Whitlock Jan-Apr, 2012)

 

Due to brain injuries, and consequent communication and cognitive deficits, injured worker has been unsuccessful in retaining competent legal representation, knowledgeable about proper handling of a brain injury claim and necessary treatments and treating team, in accord with ACOEM guidelines. ADA requests for accommodations at WCAB – Riverside have been repeatedly violated.

 

1) <30 days (1/21/12);      Castillo & Associates

2) >9 months (Mar 2012 – Nov 2012)   Mike Durich, Esq. 

3) < 3 months  (Jan 2013 – Apr 2013)  David Lynch & Associates

4) < 1 month  (mid-Dec 2013 to mid-Jan 2014)  Clayton Perry, Esq.

 

Treatments of chiropractic, acupuncture, neuro-optometry, neurology, functional neurology, speech therapy evaluation, on-line brain-training, EEG, and Brain MRI’s were medically necessary, as requested by multiple doctors, and in light of the medical necessity, and continuous bad-faith actions of employer and it’s insurance company and defense counsel, have been self-procured and more than approximately $23,500 in outstanding medical costs remain unreimbursed since 2012.

 

To date, authorized treatments have only included:

2012 – 14 chiropractic, 17 psychotherapy

2013 –  6 physical therapy

2014 –  6 chiropractic, 12 acupuncture (right shoulder only for first 6, second set of acupunture requested as “959.01, 784.01 Multiple Head Injury, Multiple Neck Injury, Multiple Upper Extremities, Upper Back Area” and was modified by non-doctor to “959.01, 784.0 Multiple Neck Injury, Upper Back Area”  

[All urgent medically necessary treatments have not been authorized, many denied by non-physicians, and in 2013, Corvel became involved in further denials, primarily not-authorized by their Orthopedic Surgeons denying further evaluations and treatment by specialists in Traumatic Brain Injury.  Distortions by QME/AME doctors, compounded by Defense pattern and practice of omission of medical records have further contributed to the lack of medically necessary treatments. The 38 page April 2014 evaluation by Forensic Neuropsychologist has been objected to by Defense, apparently in order to further delay treatment and cause further harm.]

 

 

THEREFORE:  

#1  Wyndham Worldwide and it’s agents neglected to provide medical treatment and proper evaluations since date of injury.  Managers at Wyndham Worldwide resort – WorldMark by Wyndham at Big Bear – were negligent and apparently untrained in proper handling of an industrial injury, particularly one including a head injury.  The failure to have transported the injured worker to the closest Emergency Room or advise injured worker to seek immediate medical treatment to avoid further injury is extreme negligence.

#2 Not given proper Workers Comp info on MPN Providers and List of Providers and 1st report insurance information was lacking, causing need for use of  employee CIGNA insurance through February 2012.

#3 Allowed to “drive self home” six hours after Wyndham managers saw her fall and lose consciousness.  Allowed her to continue working even though she complained immediately of confusion, pain in her head, back and neck and right ankle.

#4  No immediate treatment authorized for head injury / MRI / EEG.

#5  Continuous negligence from lack of authorized treatments sent on a path of self-procured medical treatments (requested by multiple providers, ignored by carrier).  Out of pocket expenses for doctors, appointments, treatments and equipment needed for prognosis and ongoing care of brain injury and rehabilitation, and orthopedic injuries.

 

SEEKING IMMEDIATE RESOLUTIONS

A) Monetary reimbursements of medical mileage, treatments, and equipment.

B) Lump Sump Settlement for life-time medical treatments including certified Brain Injury Rehabilitation including but not limited to cognitive rehabilitation for high level Loss of Executive Function of Hi-IQ TBI survivor, vision therapy, vestibular therapy, speech therapy, vocational rehabilitation and retraining, with compensation for extreme loss of future earning capacity,

 

EXHIBITS:

(to be listed)

(Unreimbursed medical expenses and miles since 2012 exceed $23,500, submitted repeatedly and complaints filed with WorkComp Audit Unit for further investigations and penalties.)

If the ‘injuries are so minimal’…. does it make sense that this injured worker would be off work for nearly 1,000 days… ‘for a headache and poor anger management skills when subject to intimidation, terrorism, and systematic bad faith and negligence?”

Capture WYN COUNT ON ME PROGRAM

How can the defense continue to refuse to authorize medically necessary treatments, and how can the defense further allege that these injuries, exacerbated by refusal to deny medical treatments since date of injuries, were somehow ‘pre-existing’…..???  Mr. Reubens, any further questions??

MAKE SENSE??
