Hi Kathy Martinez, since Kim is out of the office and her out of office reply suggested that you be contacted, I don’t know if you’d consider this email needing ‘immediate assistance’ or what, but since she was so instrumental in setting up failures to provide medical care and benefits since 2012, you can make that call.

We were hoping I could either return to work or return to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program for completion through December 2015, but I guess everybody has been too busy to address my file till the last minute, when deadlines are already gone. ¬†Tina, HR Director at Wyndham, must be under severe stress. ¬†You know that the Wyndham sales floors are highly stressful places — and they don’t even have Bagel Fridays! ¬†Goodness, one manager had a big stroke, another manager’s wife hung herself, and another manager was arrested for killing his wife. ¬† I’m actually sort of frightened about return to work to that sort of environment, but I don’t know if that can even happen now. ¬†I haven’t had a treating doctor since December 2014, and Stewart says he can’t help find a doctor (he doesn’t realize Kim Mall and the I & A officer, Valerie James, are the ones who found Dr. Bergey, the Orthopedic Surgeon….no, that’s not correct, Kim and Valerie found Dr. Jacob Rabinovich, another Orthopedic Surgeon who did an evaluation, then Kim was … well, you know how Kim is, so I had to find another attorney and they found Dr. Bergey—another Orthopedic Surgeon. ¬†What a mess.

One time when Kim and I were in Court with Judge Jimenez about the more than 300 pages of medical records omitted from the AME doctors transmission… oh, girlfriend…. maybe it wasn’t Kim’s doings with the messed up medical index, did you mess it up? ¬†Yikes. ¬†I don’t think Stewart even has a secretary, and he’s so funny, he tells me things like, ‘Ms. Ayres, I don’t have the neurology IMR report from Dr. Jurokowitz, would you kindly send me a copy” — and then I look at his incomplete medical index, and mercy, it’s listed there. ¬†He doesn’t read, or I dunno…. Anyway, this case is way out of control and many of us are hoping that it will be features on an upcoming ProPublica articles series…. Did you ever read their stuff? ¬†It’s great. ¬†THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION!! ¬†THE DEMISE OF WORKERS COMPENSATION…………… ¬† ¬†

¬† ¬† Yeah, I’d like to see THE TRIALS OF THE KILLER WORKCOMPSTERS…….

Here’s more on ProPublica

ProPublica Partners With Beacon to Promote Workers’ Comp Reporting

Anyway, I hope you’re not working late…. you can deal with this in the morning….. ¬†Check out my blogs, too… https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts. ¬†I used to be a secretary and can type about 100 wpms… but…. I can’t remember much of what I’ve typed, and shuffling through excel sheets…omg, what a challenge. ¬†And collating? OMG! Kim saw me break down in tears when when had to make some extra copies of stuff in Court and she thought I could put them in 4 little piles. ¬†Yikes! ¬†I just cried. ¬†That poor Judge found me at the parking lot sobbing hysterically cuz I had droppped all my papers…it was either than Court hearing or another….. Did you not send Stewart all the files? ¬†Or does he just not read? ¬†Anyway…. I’m being tangential…. I’ll sign off here.

Oh…. there’s already more words under this.. well, it’s almost signed off…. TTFN

We’re trying to be more transparent in our communications, and Stewart and I are really struggling with being on the same page ¬†I hope this helps us all better communicate about the needs of Wyndham Injured Workers, Working Employees and of course, Shareholders such as myself.

You have a nice day, and be sure to watch your dates on Proofs of Service…. that pattern of mis-stating dates can cause problems to more than the injured workers adversely impacted by the little lies.

Take care,

Subject: Linda Ayres vs. Wyndham Worldwide et al / CORVEL NON-RECOMMENDATIONS AND CLAIM EVALUATIONS FOR 2013

Dear Elena,

Thanks for the tip on DWC-IMR Maximus processes. I hope it helps! We’ll see! Another favor?

I am compiling information on all the non-recommendations and claims evaluations since date of injury, 1/9/12. Apparently I do not have the 2013 correspondence, from CorVel, as much of it was sent by your company to the former defense counsel, after you had been properly noticed to cease and desist. Some of it, if I ever received it, I may have simply misplaced. The pieces I have found do not show proof of service to me. You may recall my emails regarding violations of my HIPPA rights and continued anyway.

If you will kindly send me everything for 2013 I would appreciate it so I don’t have to sort it with the pieces I do have.

Will you please email me Friday morning the complete Non-Recommendations and Modifications and Claims evals for all of Dr. Darren Bergey’s requests for treatment in 2013. Everything from Ballard Brain Rehab, to chiropractic, to accupuncture, to neurology, psychology, neuro-psychology, neuro-optometry and more.

Prior to Dr. Bergey, 2/2013, all failures to provide medical care were handled directly by both the defense law firm and the adjuster, both non-physicians, cleverly avoiding a paper trail. The information and assistance office was of no help to me, and in fact, when I inquired how to deal with the grossly inaccurate and possilby fraudulent reports (per DIR definition of Fraud with intent to deny medical care) ( of Dr. Zardouz, Dr. O’Brien, and Dr. Kent, I was advised to simply write a note saying,”I object to these reports.” I did as instructed, but the fraud was never addressd, and these faulty reports are continuously used as weapons of continuous and egregious harm to me. That is being dealt with shortly, as there are interested Tasks Forces in the Offic of the DA, not the office number Dr. O’Brien dared me to report him to. It’s been over 3 years and I am continuously denied the right to be heard by a WC Judge on my right to medical care. I’m not the only injured worker self-represented. That must change, and it may take Congressional intervention. At least their looking now, huh?

By copy, if Fred Sachs, adjuster, has medical evidence of 2012 denials of requests by Dr. Daniel DeGoede,, Clinical Psychologist I was sent to by the Wyndham Worldwide Employee Assistance program who was the initial PTP and worked closely with Daniel Elliott to organize the first neuro-psychology exams and then briefly Dr. Uppal, appointed by the first law firm I retained, and then the requests by Dr. Marcel Ponton, Clinical and Neuropsychologist, appointed by the Court after a hearing in June 2012 exposing that the MPN was never properly served, and seemed not to exist at all.— PLEASE SEND ME THE 2012 DETERMINATIONS OF DENIALS OF MEDICAL CARE… Doctors didn’t deny, it was non-doctors, but there has to be a process to deal with such matters as well.

The adjuster and I worked very closely in February 2012, trying to find providers in the field of neurology and neuropsychology. Daniel cheated Dr. DeGoede out of several agreed upon and authorized sessions, and left me without any support whatsoever. Had care been authorized in 2012, I would not be writing this email today, and I would not have lost the last 3+ years of my life to such a vile system. Oh well, it is what it is, huh?

Investigative Journalists have taken a further interest in my dilemma, and with all the buzz about CorVel and ProPublica etc….. I want to be able to provide them with all the facts, so people can draw their own conclusions about my case, and the discrimination of injured workers with disabilities like mine, my age, and my gender. . I need the materials also because my civil rights are being further violated by the defense, and the Department of Justice has invited me to share more information, which I will gladly do.

By copy to the Defense firm, while you have repeatedly advised that you have no expertise in ADA and employment law, continued harm caused by your firm will be handled by the proper authorities in due course. Google FEHA, ADA, and Brain Injury.

Ok, pretty please send those 2013 CorVel non-recommendations that I am not copied on and don’t have to me electronically, and was not provided by the PTP, so I didn’t learn much about Maximus till recent corruption articles.

BTW, many of your superiors seem to have quite an appreciation for my LinkedIn profile. Please let them know there is no reason to stalk my wall, I accept all invitations to LinkUp…. friends and enemies alike. The Defense attorney and the Wyndham Risk Manager seem to have a relationship that goes ‘way back’ and I am now fearful that such a conflict of interest may be a factor in the continuous harm to me, and that department’s repeated failures to communicate with me and it’s failures to conduct a long over due claim audit. Michael would never even help me when I asked for help with reimbursements and TTD payments. Awful. That New Jersey politician is taking some serious heat for promoting the CorVel allegations of employee fraud being “40%”…. I suggested it might be an internal statistic, on the low side. Corporate fraud is of extreme interest in the news today. Let’s give them the facts on my case and let the public draw it’s own conclusions, shall we?

I hope most of you never have to experience the extreme horrors this WorkComp charade has put me through.

IF YOU HAVE A JOB, STAY SAFE. IT’S BRUTAL IF YOU’RE HURT ON THE JOB!

Do you think this means that because CNA refuses to get me training and treatment so I can return to work (it’s been over 3 years now) that they are breaking this law? And making my employer, WyndhamWorldwide a party to such a law breach?

Looks like disabled people are allegedly already protected… hmmm….just found some things on FEHA while looking for other things…. I have no interest in going to law school to save my life, but surely they can see the value of the state run program, COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM….they have been helping people with Brain Injuries return to the community and work for over 25 years. All CNA can approve is some chiropractic, acupuncture and evaluations for over 35 doctors…. for brain injuries? D’oh! ain’t that nothing!

“12940. It is an unlawful employment practice . . . [f]or an employer, because of the . . . , physical disability, mental disability, . . . of any person, to refuse to hire or employ the person or to refuse to select the person for a training program leading to employment, or to bar or to discharge the person from employment or from a training program leading to employment, or to discriminate against the person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. “ (Gov.

WHO IS PROTECTED?

THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE:

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 Рwith 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.

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

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.

I did speak to the organizing attorney of that event (must find his name again, disorganization is just one of the many side-effects of TBI) and I suggested that they open up the Exhibit halls to Injured Workers, and offer an injured worker discounted fee for their educational forums. ¬†If all WorkComp industry events would open doors to injured workers, virtual and non-virtual, great progress could be made in “cutting costs and saving lives.” ¬†

INJURED WORKERS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM; WE ARE THE CASUALTIES OF THE PROBLEMS; the collateral damage to insane profits of your mega-billion dollar industries.  

WorkComp is much like the Nuclear Industry: PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.

I met some amazing people! ¬†I had begun to believe that WorkComp was just a rat infested sewer of Americans acting like Sonderkommando of WorldWar II. I am happy to be able to report, that opinion is changing….with each new positive encounter, further facilitated via social media.¬†

FOLLOW THIS BLOG; MORE TO COME…..COUNT ON IT! ¬†(Thanks!)

I start SCRIPPS BRAIN INJURY REHABILITATION PROGRAM¬†next week¬†and I guess I could have had a driver and sedan for transportation, but I’ll rough it. ūüôā

social networking

Here’s a note I started for another friend, but I’m turning it into a blog this morning…. via Social Media, I am meeting more and more good providers of WorkComp information and services.
.
This ¬†blog has a Resources page; we will amp it up! ¬†This is a new beginning (with several other drafts still in the works). ¬†The title of today’s blog is:

 

What can we tell Injured Workers and their loved ones about YOUR organization?

 

At the same time, my benefits (income) have been abruptly allegedly “EXHAUSTED” as of ¬†7/26/14 (I was told the reinstatement would last through mid-September, minimally). ¬†Date of Injury 1/9/12. ¬†Exhaustion of benefits: 7/26/14. ¬†
That appears to be a shortfall of 24 weeks, or $23,088.  
Combined with the unreimbursed since 2012 medical miles and expenses of $25,262.99 submitted to date; June-July are still to be submitted.  
That’s $48,350.99 they got away with not paying, on top of causing me egregious harm by failure to provide medically necessary treatment for¬†2 years, 6 months, 24 days.
white roses

 

The ¬†Wyndham long term disability carrier staff of Reliance/Matrix are COMPETENT, nice, kind, compassionate, friendly, even if they deliver less than anticipated news. ¬†I don’t know exactly what the problem is with CNA and Grancell, but it ain’t me, no matter how many doctors they may pay to write expensive fake reports!

 

 Exhaustion of Benefits  104 plus 52 equals how much

 

The problem is simple: ¬†In CA, an injured worker is entitled to 104 weeks of TTD, 52 weeks of State Disability. ¬†(156 weeks). ¬†I have been paid approximately 132 weeks. ¬†The math DOES NOT COMPUTE, HUH? ¬† “Where’s the money, Mr. Motamed? Looks like a shortfall of 24 weeks, AND, continued refusal to reimburse medical miles to even primary treating doctors, and self-procured medically necessary treatment in light of your company’s breach of fiduciary responsiblities to have provided immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care for clearly diagnosed, by multiple doctors over the course.

 .

Many of your people do not know that the “brain” is a body part located in the “head” and they are further puzzled, baffled and bewildered to discover that “evaluations are not medical treatment.” ¬†The same problem exist at WCAB, particularly in the Information and Assistance realms, that “very small community, where everybody knows everybody, and has worked together for years.” ¬†Collusion? ¬†Awww, fix it and the District Attorney may continue to look the other way, huh?

 .

CNA secured a free loan from the State of California (in defiance of paying TTD in 2012, the State therefore paid $47,922 in 2012/2013), then, on demand for payment, CNA secured a huge discount and paid the State back $31,400, shorting ME approximately 24 weeks of benefits, while STILL WAITING FOR TREATMENT TO COMMENCE.  The State tells me it happens all the time, and their hands are tied.  (By whaaaat?!!!)

 .

That tells me that CNA and their law firm, Grancell et al, ¬†have declared an end to the cease fire in another act of ‘guerrila warefare’….. ¬† They both indicated they will do nothing to sort it out, and actually wrote me some pretty mean and nasty emails. Wyndham remains silent. ¬† :/ TSK! Blockheads!¬†

 

Lucy and Friends on WorkComp Crimes

 

You can tell your people I intended to play nice and quiet and wait and see what happens during/after treatment. ¬†That’s not doing me any good, since the financial terrorism of February 2014 is starting alll over again.

 

WC WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE 7 1 2014

 

Before I head to SCRIPPS, my political representatives will hear about this in further detail, as it appears to be a pattern and practice exercised by CNA, with all injured workers, in all states. Mr. Motamed, $10.7 million dollars a year CNA CEO will also be hearing from/of me, if he hasn’t already.

 

CNA CEO MOTAMED

 

Tsk, mean crowd.

 

Stephen Holmes 100000
WyndhamWorldwide CEO, Stephen Holmes, 4th dude from the left. Dude, Dump CNA and Grancell, take it from an Injured Worker AND Shareholder. In one sytem-fail injury worker case, they have undone years of goodwill… How many other Wyndham employees have been so poorlytreated? ¬†Is it worth it? WE THINK NOT.

WC Mini Books

A blog was done that sort of plugged her book after ordering her book for myself, with hopes that if injured workers are armed with information, we will be less vulnerable to the hate crimes of the big insurance companies.

(They hate us because a little medical care cuts into their corporate profits??! D’oh! They may need new bean counters!!!)

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 РNov 2012)   Mike Durich, Esq. 

3) < 3 months  (Jan 2013 РApr 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.)
