Same sort of criminal activities in the USA. #WorkCompsterism.
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW – EXPOSE CORRUPTION IN WORK COMP IN YOUR TOWN TOO
I work for Wyndham Worldwide, the world’s largest hospitality company, I’ve been denied medical care for a brain injury as a result of a slip and fall at work. the date of injury was January 9th 2012. the first year I didn’t have much fight in me… I could hardly talk or think and slept unless I was driving myself to all their evaluations, all of the recommendations for treatment which were denied.
Last fall October 2014, I received a call from the fraud unit at the insurance carrier CNA. the guy told me to stop emailing him and insisted he did not care that I was not getting medical care and in fact that conversation ended when he asked, “so tell me Linda, when are you going to die?” my employer is fully aware of the bullying terrorism Financial and medical abuse violations of my civil rights in a case riddled with fraud. at this stage I assume their silence is complicity.
It’s cheaper, more cost effective for the insurance carriers and the corporations to kill us, or insight a questionable suicide, risking merely a maximum $100,000 fine in the USA for killing an injured worker. cheaper than medical care. approved unfortunately, by politicians clearly on the dole, and law enforcement looks the other way…
As some people survived Nazi Germany by telling their friends and telling their neighbors and helping one another, so most injured workers around the world help one another to survive this war on workers.
We are the media now…
Take it to the virtual streets…
Here’s my blog… For what it’s worth. ASK ABOUT #WORKCOMP GRAVY TRAINS
Let’s find the way to take ’em all to The Hague….as suggested by an insurance industry leased/owned forensic psychiatrist, who profits by writing fraudulent reports on Injured California Workers…. at the beck and call of the Defense Counsel — they seem to believe they are above law, and immune from prosecution of felony fraud. Perhaps they are; in a fascist state they certainly would be, wouldn’t they?
“… I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”
“Domestic enemies”….that seems to include the #WorkCompsters and their #WarOnWorkers, wouldn’t you think?
Dear “Supplemental People” —-
US Constitutional 5th and 14th Amendments immediately come to mind, and the secret police type reports Grancell encourages to protect fraudulent medical reports of their payees seems to violate Article 14 of the California Constitution, for starters.
DO YOU HAVE ANY LEGAL CITATIONS TO SUGGEST TO INCLUDE IN MY RESPONSE TO THE JUDGE’S ORDER TO COMPEL ATTENDANCE AT AN ENT DOCTOR EVALUATION …
[Ear, nose and throat; general vicinity of the brain, but still not a brain doctor, but closer than an orthopedic surgeon, huh?]
…. AND YET ANOTHER NEURO-PSYCH EVALUATION, without causing the Defense to provide complete and accurate records, and allowing the Defense to write false cover letters to the doctors, and without allowing due process to injured worker to appear and plead for medical care and cessation of bullying, file churning and fraud, and with denials of requested ADA accommodations for appearance?
As defense is attempting to falsely claim this accident did not occur at work, is Wyndham Worldwide committing fraud, or is it just the Defense Firm personnel and the doctors they have involved in their chicanery via omission of medical records and misleading cover letters? Now, if they say I did fall backwards on ice and hit my head real hard, as the DWC-1 statement on date of injury so indicates, and is signed by the Admin Manager, and they know I haven’t worked or been right since, then Wyndham appears to be only guilty of collusion to keep the dirty secrets, and human rights failures to come to the aid of an injured worker, and failures to hold their vendors accountable for bullying and egregious harm to an Injured Wyndham Worker.
Back in 2013, I asked a Judge to authorize me to pay an hourly consult to a WorkComp lawyer, as indicated in the Christopher A. Ball book for Injured Workers, recommended on the WCAB site. It is called California Workers’ Comp HOW TO TAKE CHARGE WHEN YOU’RE INJURED ON THE JOB. The Judge declined; said it was against the law.
I have dismissed 4 law firms that seemed very confused about the difference between a broken finger and a brain injury, so not a good fit for attempting to get medical care. I have accomplished more than all 4 of them on my own., and I have accomplished quite little. So, that leaves me without legal counsel, with a brain injury, fighting organized crime, armed with the will to survive and the ability to type and blog. Ain’t that nothing, America!
My response, this weekend, with a “DOR” will probably be called:
PETITION TO COMPEL RIGHT ACTION AND COMPLIANCE WITH LABOR CODE AND US CONSTITUTIONAL LAW in the case of Linda Ayres Vs. Wyndham Worldwide, et al
As you know, on January 9, 2012, in efforts to help my co-workers get inside the office, during a snow storm, in which we were locked out, I told my manager I thought the window at my table might be unlocked, and we walked over to check the window. It was locked. My manager made it back to the side walk safely; I slipped on ice and fell backwards, and hit my head very very hard. I laid on the ground for I don’t know how long, my keys went flying and when my manager asked, “Are you ok?” I said, “No, I’m not. I hit my head reallly reallly reallly hard.” Somebody took my briefcase inside the office but I had to go outside later to find my keys, that I do remember, because they were not in my handbag.
After a little while, he helped me up. I’m in sales. We are ‘trained’ to leave our troubles at the door. I dusted all the snow off of me, and went inside to attend the Sales Huddle. My colleagues had a good laugh. I forget who said it, but someone said, “Ewwwwwww, Linda has Fukushima Rads all over her now!” (I had shared with them how radioactive snow is, as the snowflakes latch on to the radioactive isotopes like scavengers, and encouraged dodging the snow flakes, by any means necessary.) I got “in trouble” for sharing this picture in the break room in 2011… I was told it was not very positive; it illustrates the impact of radiation poisoning.
Later, the Administrative Manager asked if I was going to see a doctor, and I said yes, and I asked, “Do I have to see any special doctor?” He said, “Just see any doctor that accepts workers comp insurance” and he gave me an incomplete “DWC-1” form — he signed it, but it had no insurance company information on it, and no doctor could accept it, and the office did not return the doctor’s calls.
Remember, Wyndham staff did not offer to call 911 or even bother to take me or offer a ride to Urgent Care or an Emergency Room. Previously, I dropped everything and took a co-worker to Urgent Care as she was complaining of chest pains to everybody. HR had no plan in place for dealing with such issues, either. Perhaps staff is “too young or too stupid” to make life affirming decisions.
My guests, at the first wave tour, knew I was clearly dazed and confused, and they got their “gift” without any hard-sell….just gratitude that they were understanding about my confusion, as I told them I had slipped on ice and hit my head real hard that morning.
I went to the doctor after work, God only knows how I drove down that icy mountain road. For some reason, I don’t know why, an hour trip took over two hours. When I saw the chiropractor (I thought I just needed a little adjustment for my neck and back) but the doctor said I had a concussion. I didn’t know what that meant. He suggested I would feel like I’d been hit by a truck in a few days, but in a few weeks I’d probably be fine He was right about feeling like I’d been hit by a truck. I vaguely remember having to use both hands to lift my head up from bed, and I slept a lot –
I went to the Urgent care a few days later, since someone told me people can die from head injuries; they could not take the DWC-1 form, but they kindly accepted the CIGNA employee health insurance (which CIGNA had to fax to them, since I couldn’t find the card). I got lost going to that doctor’s office, then lost again going home waiting for CIGNA to fax them the card, and disoriented on return. Defense likes to say that doctor said I wasn’t dizzy, disoriented or confused. D’oh! The office is less than 5 miles from home, in rural Yucca Valley.
I had already called the EAP – Employee Assistance Program — because I was so confused, couldn’t think, and was having trouble talking, and my words were slurring. I haven’t had a drink or drug in over 28 years. People said I sounded drunk. Not a good sign. EAP connected me with a clinical psychologist who referred me to a local neurologist (who refused to see me since it was work comp, at a scheduled appointment; his office perjured and said I failed to appear for appointment; I begged for help or at least a referral when they turned me away.
Turns out, they were actually on what I later learned to be an MPN list…) The rest of the blogs (https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts/ has the rest of the details; perhaps a law school may find it of interest; real lawyers don’t give a hoot, nor, apparently, do WorkComp Judges, complicit in the terrors I have experienced as a member of America’s Working Class, injured being a team player, kicked to the curb by the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES CROWD.
As many of you know, I am currently enrolled in the Coastline Community College State run ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM. It is a one to two year program, and it helping me tremendously, in learning compensatory skills, and in ‘resocialization’ — being in a community with other brain injury survivors is remarkable, and yes, we compare notes on the chicanery of the legal and insurance psychopaths—the stories are all quite similar. We do need Nuremberg type trials, and this time, include the lawyers and their ilk.
I am learning a new software to compensate for cognitive impairments…. including loss of working memory…. I haven’t quite figured out how to get the images out of the software into the blog, so I have resorted to copy and paste. I think you can see the big picture of what I am currently dealing with. Future blogs may have better presentation, as I am currently studying how this software can make up for my loss of working memory. It really helps me to see the ‘big picture’ again.
We are also learning about learning styles, and how our brain injuries impact our need to focus on strategies to be more “concrete sequential” in our new approach to life. This software, with several other apps and devices, serves as cognitive aids.
My progress seems measurable, substantiated by the increase in blog views since June 2013…
Bottom line, it’s just more dreadful fraud and legal chicanery. I could just spit at the vileness of it all. Anyway, If you have any suggestions on how to best approach the Judge. I don’t really believe I can be compelled to participate in felony fraud in an ongoing workers compensation scam by the defense firm and insurance carrier representing my employer, Wyndham Worldwide.
As many of you know, the medical care I have received, I have had to pay for myself, now exceeding over $43,000. CNA refused to pay TTD benefits in 2012, shifted the cost burden to the State, then finally paid the State back in 2014, at a dramatic discount. They said it’s legal because EDD “negotiated” a $49k payback to $31,000 payback. I don’t think the State Controller knows, but lawyers and EDD tell me it “happens all the time.” As a consequence, instead of “104 weeks of TTD” payable by Work Comp Carrier, followed by ” up to 52 weeks of State Disability” I got cheated out not only medical care that would have possibly facilitated return to work, but I had no income for months and months and months (translation; had to rely on Salvation Army for help!) but I got cheated out of the EDD “up to 52 weeks” and those funds went back to CNA for bottom line profits.
It’s a brain storming tool, and helps compensate for impaired loss of working memory.
It’s a little embarrassing that I cannot figure out how to ‘export’ or ‘transfer’ this info as the software is designed to, but it does serve as an example of my creative work-arounds and compensatory strategies. The outline text is below.
Remember, in my pre-brain-injury life, I was a Database Queen, I served years ago as an Executive Assistant to some serious Captains of Global Industries, and it took smarts and serious speed and cognitive functions to keep them organized, and my work included intense logistics, keeping them on meeting schedules, to private planes, yachts and limos, political events and more.
So, when I read some of the fraudulent statements of some well paid insurance industry doctors, you might imagine how I could just spit at the audacity of these little thugs. One government agent, as I told some of the tales of the corrupution and horrors I have been exposed to, asked, “How can they sleep at night?” I said, “Psychopaths have no sleep problems.”
As many of you also know, I lost professional credentials due to the untreated brain injury. I lost my Hawaii Real Estate Sales License, California Real Estate Broker’s license, and California Notary Commission. While I have not hope to be able to restore my Hawaii license, I was able this year to reinstate my California Real Estate Broker’s license, and just yesterday, I took my Oath for my California Notary Commission. Yes, I take my Oaths seriously, always have, always will:
“I, Linda Ayres, do solemnly affirm that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter.”
Dear Paul, Legal Secretary to Stewart Reubens, Partner Shareholder at Grancell Stander Reubens et al:

I OBJECT TO THE COVER LETTER, THE MEDICAL INDEX, AND ALL SCHEDULED EVALUATIONS you sent.
I WILL NOT PARTICIPATE in further evaluations PRIOR TO A COURT HEARING AND HOPEFULLY, FBI INTERVENTION ONCE AND FOR ALL.
This is my 4th attempt to write a simply “I OBJECT” letter.
Feel free to set up the DOR, but note I am only available on Thursdays/Fridays. I request additional time to review what you sent, and to document the falsehoods, again. I have to do it every time, and there is no remorse for acts of apparent fraud by defense counsel. Somehow, they think they are doing their job, in full and complete violation of California Labor Code and the US Constitution. Yeah, I know, who cares about the law and fraud when it comes to the Mega Billion Dollar WorkComp industries.
If the Judge will kindly void the liens of the incompetent counsel retained for 30 days, 9 months, 3 months and 45 days, perhaps I can retain legal counsel. I have accomplished more without counsel than with. Go figure that. You may be banking on that belief that there is ‘no money’ for an Injured Worker attorney and I suspect they may be right, therefore, we will make lemonade. We will use this case to ensure that Wyndham and CNA and Grancell are properly exposed for the harm and permanent injuries they cause to injured workers, and how they take money from State taxpayers as profits beyond measure. So be it.
There may be no money in Fraud indictments, but I am willing to guess that some bright young FBI agent or some Seasoned Veteran FBI agent will get a promotion after investigating all the little frauds and unclean hands of this case. Or, maybe not. Maybe it’s ok with that Department too. I don’t know. I aim to find out. Dr. O’Brien suggested that if I have Human Rights Complaints to ‘take it to The Hague’… Looking into that too, although that may be a bit more challenging.
What treatment has CNA authorized? Remember, I paid for most of the life-saving treatment. What brain injury specific evaluations has CNA authorized? Not even an MRI? Couldn’t provide a treating neurologist and in collusion with WCAB Info & Assistance officer abuse of a disabled American, I got stuck with an Orthopedic Surgeon who was later threatened with expulsion from the MPN for trying to help me, and his referrals were all mocked and non-recommended (and left off the proposed Medical Index)
How did I get to SCRIPPS BRAIN INJURY REHABILITATION CENTER in the summer of 2014? (Remember, the injury was January 9, 2012) Because CNA recognized their failures to treat in the first 2.5 years and they thought 16 days of speech, occupational and physical therapy would suffice? I remember how Stewart delayed further and tried to kill it…. but alas, thanks his to ego and pen, at LEAST I GOT those 16days plus 8 more…. that could have been more helpful in the first year, but were confirmation to me of how impaired I really am. You’re luck I found COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM…. It’s the best help available for brain injuries, particularly when denied medical care for over 3 years, as is the practice of CNA. Remember remember, Daniel Elliott terminated all benefits in April 2012, upon learning of the seriousness of my brain injuries. In November 2012, Ms. Kim Mall, Esq. of Grancell attempted to coerce, with my counsel #2, a premature settlement in the ol’ industry fee of $100,000 — AFTER HAVING FAILED TO AUTHORIZE ALL MEDICAL RECOMMENDATIONS AND TREATMENTS THAT FIRST YEAR.
Most lawyers I have interviewed tell me that the attorneys prior did not do their jobs and consequently ‘there’s no money in the case’ so good luck. That incompetence is rewarded in the legal field, at the expense of injured workers is nearly as heinous as the harm such incompetence causes. Others have told me point blank there’s entirely too much fraud involved to take it on. That leaves me, brain impaired and all, to fight organized crime alone. Well, what I lost in marbles I tend to make up in intuition, and ONE PERSON AND GOD CONSTITUTES AN ARMY, SO IF GOD IS FOR ME, NOT EVEN PSYCHOPATHS DARE BE AGAINST.
Thank you for your email of yesterday. Today I received mail also from Dr. Mekijan. There is insufficient time for me to respond fully due to the lateness of receipt of materials and due to cognitive impairments and ADA requirements for additional time to review what you and the doctor have sent, and further time to compile as concise a response as possible.
I am not available to meet with Dr. Mekjian on July 1, 2015, nor do I know what the doctor’s credentials are. The ENT doctor does not meet Labor Code requirements as he does not specialize in auditory processing issues, nor does he treat same. I OBJECT.
Please let Dr. Mekjian know that the appointment will have to be postponed until the issues regarding medical records are sorted out, including corrections of what appear to be continuous false statements with intent to deny medical care and to doctor shop, omission of medical records, as is the pattern and practice of Grancell in this case.
I have only just glanced at the proposed faulty medical index, I have not received hard copies of the medical records (Grancell has a pattern and practice of omitting complete and partial records, so as Stewart knows, I requested hard copies as well). The cover letter is fraught with what appears to be continues with false and misleading statements that may be subject to indictment for felony fraud.
We will have to get in front of the Judge on this, as well as the appointment with the ENT doctor, who does not treat auditory processing impairments as a part of his practice, nor is he qualified to. As I was denied the right to ADA accommmodations and the right to be heard by the Judge when this chicanery began, let us know straighten it out.
It is further impossible and potentially dangerous for me to attempt to jump through the circus hoops the Defense is now proposing. I cannot drive hundreds of miles in one week, with unknown places to sleep to accommodate further Grancell chicanery. It is a dangerous request and cognitively too demanding. That will be the second week of return to Coastline, which is disorienting and cognitively demanding enough, and you don’t pay for any of it, so you sure as heck are not going to cost me the bit of recovery that I am paying for myself.
Asking me to drive from Yucca Valley to Newport Beach, to Palm Springs, back to Newport Beach, then to Murietta then back home to YUCCA VALLEY, not knowing where to sleep in Palm Springs or Murietta, DURING THE 4TH OF JULY HOLIDAY WEEK IS UNACCEPTABLE and I will not subject myself to such dangers. That’s as ridiculous as the first neurologist who wanted me to drive 100 miles each way, SLEEP DEPRIVED, IN THE 2ND MONTH POST BRAIN INJURY. Misogynistic on top of everything else?
I am happy to meet in an expedited hearing July 9, 16, 23 with proper ADA accommodations for impairments caused by traumatic brain injury, essentially untreated since date of injury, having caused permanent and chronic disability, per SSA also, and multiple medical experts, and finders of facts will find.
As Fred Sachs has been advised, the local chiropractor, authorized by Fred in December who has not been paid yet, indicated a willingness to be designated as my primary treating doctor. He has extensive experience treating high profile athletes with brain injuries, getting them back in the game as soon as possible. His office is approximately 15minutes from my home and he provides treatment. His office will also accept Medicare Care, that apparently comes with the Social Security Award of Permanent Disability reached in April 2015. Judge to Judge, WCAB Judge may find SSA Judge findings of interest, particularly in reference to the 2013 AME/AME reports. The SSA neurosurgeon disagrees with the Maximus alleged and unnamed ‘neuro-surgeon’…. These all further matters for further investigations by the proper authorities.
As is quite well known by all stakeholders, I am attending the Coastline Community College Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach California. We have had all of June, during summer break, to have organized evaluations, if necessary. As all parties know, I am available Friday or Thursday for further evaluations and Court sessions. To request that I miss time at Coastline means missing on very valuable compensatory strategies that are necessary BECAUSE CNA refused to provide medical care for this injury.
This misleading statements in Stewart’s current letter suggest that CNA provided medical care. Finders of facts will determine that the injured worker provided the bulk of specialty treatment that was requested and repeatedly denied by CNA. At first glance, the Medical Index is still extremely flawed and I will ask the Judge for more time, due to my cogitive impairments, to review what you have sent, what the Doctor sent, the appeal to Maximus based on apparent exparte directions to commit fraud, in a similar pattern as Doctors Zardouz, O’Brien and Kent were subjected to by false cover letters from Defense, and egregious omission of medical records with apparent fraudulent intent to continue to deny medical.
If the cover letter Defense proposes to be sent to Dr. Thomas Schweller, scheduled for July 2, 2015 in Murietta is as egregiously incorrect and full of unfounded medical opinions and false allegations, I will not attend.
It is my hope and prayer to have a working meeting with the FBI regarding the conduct of Grancell Stander Reubens and their small time of doctors who write false reports with intent and success in denying medical care…. and it is my hope to have such meeting prior to appearing in WCAB Court. As I told the Judge last year, I would NOT return to that Court until I found an agency willing to deal with the Fraud. It has been brought to my attention that the FBI is just such an agency.
#IRE15 #WorkComp: Yeah, my case too! Sounds like DOJ and FBI need to establish an Investigative Task Force, Stat, huh? We can hope…. READ THIS: https://lnkd.in/bjPwdZfSee More, Say More; Ask About FBI Intervention? DA offices seem …. unresponsive?https://lnkd.in/btH3gtS show less
So, let’s postpone the neuro-psych report and ensure the Judge who allegedly authorized it without my being heard knows about all the previous psychological evaluations, their findings, their recommendations for treatments, denials of the requested treatments repeatedly since January 2012, and let us be sure the Judge sees the false statements written by the three industry leased doctors…. O’BRIEN, ZARDOUZ AND KENT…. and let’s also be sure the Judge is aware of the extortion and other threats made on doctors who have treated me.
Then, we’ll talk about scheduling more evaluations. Till then, ask Stewart to clean up the cover letter to the doctors, let’s hope Fred doesn’t write false reports, and cleanup the medical index. (I will respond to your attachments by emailnot later than June 21st, 2015, clearly defining all of my objections. As the Information and Assistance Officer advised me when I first objected to the Zardouz/O’Brien false medical reports, all I have to do is say “I OBJECT”…. A LOT OF GOOD THAT DID, HUH? FBI….their job is to fight fraud. Y’all can deal with them.
Am I clear enough? I’m too tired to try a 5th time. Bottom line, I refuse to participate in your collective acts of felony fraud, and I refuse to allow you to cause me further harm by preventing me from maximizing the help I am getting at Coastline Community College ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM…. nationally known as the best place in the nation for compensatory strategies required to return to life after brain injury. Coastline has an extremely challenging admissions program…..does Stewart really continue to support the fraudulent reports of Maximus, Zardouz, Kent, and O’Brien, despite substantial medical evidence by over 35 other doctors indicating brain injury with professional recommendations for treatment that could have helped me, but instead, your continous failures to provide care, and continued doctor shopping and fraudulent reports just cause more harm, contributing to my permanent disabilities.
