A Cynical Look at #WorkComp War?

A cynical look at the #WorkComp War by a Survivor? Close.

It is an attempt to evoke critical thinking about the #GrandWorkCompFraud scam maiming and killing injured workers, which also ravages public and corporate funds in a business model of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.

It is also an attempt to dispel the Pollyanna-ish dangerous belief that  #WorkComp, a mega billion dollar industry, is simply “broken.”

When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained

 

#WorkComp is everybody’s business.

It is also an attempt to offer hope to injured workers, and to show by example that learned helplessness is lethal and can be overcome, even when most of America knows about the horrors and atrocities and chooses to look the other way.

“SAN DIEGO – A husband and wife claim the workers’ compensation system in San Diego courts is a “good old boys” club, where cases are settled for pennies on a dollar, and they said anyone who is entitled to help has to fight to get it…..”   

“How could they be so blatant in doing this?” Campbell said, and stated she is angry her attorneys pressured her to settle her case for pennies on the dollar.
Campbell said one of her attorneys told her fraud charges would be filed against herself, if she didn’t settle.”

“It puts us in a tough position,” said Campbell’s husband, David Heibert. “Settle the case or hire a criminal attorney.”

Independent Medical Examination Agenda – YouTube

► 3:55  http://www.wwolaw.net Hulett learns the real purpose of so called “Independent Medical Examinations.”

Not saying all doctors in WorkComp are horrible creatures; many have left the industry for private practice.  It is said that some have ‘retired into’ WorkComp evaluations.  

.

Better guidelines for QME/AME designations, along with ethics requirements and recordings of evaluations of all injured workers for at least the next ten years must be considered in order to save lives and indict criminals.  Let’s have fresh trials, and stop history from repeating itself in America.  

373904_108997595883860_100003208595731_54447_1057147537_n   organized crime.

When doctors are not held accountable for false reports that cause harm and death,  written for profit and with intention to deny medical care and worse, something’s rotten in the system. When doctors can willfully change dates of injuries in order to use earlier medical reports to falsely substantiate ‘pre-existing’ conditions, something’s rotten in the system.  When the System itself allows for ‘secret reports’ and hefty payments to doctors who can’t even get a date of injury straight, something is rotten in the system.

Doctors Trial

Does anybody have hard stats on WorkComp in America?  At the recent #WorkCompCentral #CompLaude Gala, it was mentioned, if memory serves sufficiently, that approximately 15% of injured workers in America are unrepresented..

  • If that math is correct, that’s about 8 million — UNREPRESENTED INJURED WORKERS.  
  • It does not count the ‘poorly represented’ injured workers!  WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR THAT MARKET SEGMENT?

Could ‘On-Time Records’ help America’s Injured Workers?  What can YOU do?

. recently article indicated that the UK offers Corporations tax breaks for providing medically necessary treatments to injured/disabled workers in order to facilitate return to work? http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/news/2015/january/returning-work-online-media-project  http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/news/2015/january/fit-work-guidance-employers  http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/printmail/1702

Wow, that’s the direct opposite of USA treatment of disabled and injured workers, huh?

.

Insurance companies here are paid big bonuses for refusing to pay disability benefits, provide medically necessary treatments, and they seem to use any means necessary to shift cost burdens to State and Federal Agencies, before people enter the ranks of homelessness and incarceration.  Same insurance companies are on a 3-D plan, DELAY, DENY, DECEIVE, approved by volumes of useless laws?  Employers can willfully refuse to engage in interactive process for return to work discussions…FOR YEARS!!!  d’OH!  Without consequences? Hmph.

.

Apparently, there are ‘Tea Parties’ and ‘Tea Parties’ and “Tempests in Teapots?”

Often, #InjuredWorkers make poor choices in retaining legal counsel, and many have retained 2 or more, leaving them defenseless, since incompetence in the legal fields allows dismissed counsel to place a lien on the WorkComp claim, rendering it useless (i.e. unprofitable) to further counsel.

.

If 15% of the InjuredWorkers in America are currently unrepresented, 15% of 54 million is 8,100,000 at any given time.  Many of those InjuredWorkers are too sick or medicated to fight the good fight, and many will simply join the ranks of the homeless and prison population and cemetaries.

WHAT SERVICES DOES YOUR WORK COMP FIRM OFFER TO UNREPRESENTED WORKERS, IN PRO PER?  

Occupy media coverage

Does YOUR STAFF understand the rights of flag-waving InjuredWorkers, In Pro Per, or is your staff increasing risk of malpractice complaints against your teams?

This case has several instances of WorkComp provider staff telling this injured worker that they can only take directions, requests, medical records, complaints and correction directly from the Defense Counsel, or adjuster, if unrepresented. The perjured Proof of Services and responses to proofs of services are another issue that causes egregious harm.

Really?  How interesting.  Does the ACLU agree with that interpretation of Civil Rights and Labor Codes?  Does the DOJ agree?

“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.”

TriageNow, a WorkComp phone nurse group was recently stumbled upon and we suggested they contact Wyndham since Wyndham’s staff are clueless on how to handle a worker injury.  They are following on Twitter now. https://twitter.com/LindaAyres311
.
LinkedIn is proving to be a great place for outreach, and I keep making it to the top of the Wyndham stats. https://www.linkedin.com/in/lindaayres311  Maybe for YOUR level of investigative reporting, you can work in an interview with some Wyndham key executives?
.
Their top peeps are in New Jersey http://www.wyndhamworldwide.com/about-wyndham-worldwide/our-leadership  You or one of your colleagues could approach them with an angle that perhaps you can help solve their future work comp dilemmas and the bad will that will no doubt build.

Could I pretty please ask your opinion on some questions to ask of other injured workers?  What is it that YOU believe is needed to reach professionals in the work comp community, who are not party to the atrocities that are happening everyday, everywhere? Do you have a list of standard questions?
If you can’t, no worries, We’ll take another route, and thank you again for your consideration.
social networking
We will ask some of my friends and injured worker pals for their stories, and we will render them anonymous, so that they can be shared and explored without emotions. (see email thread below)

We (me and a few Injured Friends and Warriors) hope to have a new website up and running before the WorkComp Laude Awards Gala, and we would like to have a questionnaire Survey available to facilitate further communications.

Comp Laude Awards  2014
One particular e-group of ‘radical’ and “outspoken” and “knowledgeable” injured workers deals with the unconstitutionality of WorkComp in California, and a variety of other whinings about the government collusion with the insurance company bad guys.  Kaiser, State, Sedgwick, CNA…a bunch of big names involved.  All have had poor experiences with InjuredWorker legal representation, much like my challenge with incompetent counsels.
 .
As we know, that saves no lives, and merely adds to profit margins for the few.  Many have been fighting in the system for 10-20 years.  Yikes, that’s unfathomable to me.  The moment I saw the real deal and got more of marbles back, the faster I wanted out.  Looks like that won’t be happening, so I will kick and scream and expose to expunge, till death do us part.

When I told that particular e-group about the Comp Laude nomination as an Injured Worker, omg, the dirt started flinging, calling me an ‘industry hack’ and worse… Sadly, many have been in the “system” for 10-20+ years, and some seem to be casualties of the opiate drug wars conducted by work comp as well.
.go save yourself from the zombies
I had tried to have coffee with one (having had a lengthy phone conversation in the summer listening to the work comp sad tale, unable to get in a word edgewise).  I was going to see about extending an invitation to the 12/6/14 Gala, and omg, all hell broke lose….I won’t be in touch with them anymore, jeeeze! It was like dealing with defense counsels or I & A agents. Learned Helplessness, Institutionalization and being a “Victim” is apparently a real consequence of ‘doing time’ in WorkComp in America.
.
There are many injured workers groups on social media, quietly fighting for their lives.  Some not even telling their friends and neighbors of the horrors of fighting for basic medical care and basic temporary disability benefits or “incapacitation” benefits.  There is no reason to put up with suspected agents of disinformation; we injured workers have our hands full dealing with defense counsels, insurance companies, their owned doctors etc. and work comp judiciaries etc.

[They even accused me of not having a brain injury at all…. and made me wonder who THEY worked for…..I didn’t even read half of their emails…D’oh…. Talk about mean-spiritedness!   If I didn’t have a brain injury, there is no way I would be in this mess, imho.]

DePaolo’s blogs are excellent, but the ‘fraud factors’ seem real hard to grasp, from an insider perspective.  It’s crystal clear as a “victim of WorkComp”…. I haven’t counted how many doctors have applauded my big mouth and said, “Somebody’s got to do it” as they eliminate injured workers from their portfolios.
 .
I changed my Orthopedic regular 45 day visit from December 5 so that I can be rested for the December 6th experience.  The doctor’s office was THRILLED to hear that I was nominated as a finalist for the CompLaude Awards.  She said, “Tell how how bad things are.  They need to hear someone.  Your case should have been gone a long time ago!”…. and she knows how hard they have fought to try to get me to a brain injury specialist.  They couldn’t even get me to a neurologist.  D’oh.
.
I thanked her and giggled and said, “I’m a finalist, but politically speaking, I don’t think they can dare to let me win.”….. But it is still an honor and opportunity, which I take seriously.
 .
Here’s the response I sent to that private injured worker e-group, in response to their hope that Ralph Nader will save them.  D’oh.   [They called it self-serving, so, it’s sort of a no-win situation dealing with hammered, drugged and chemically poisoned Prisoners of WorkComp….whew ]  Anyhow,
 .
If any of it strikes a chord and you want to share your thoughts informally to give it more structure, and more reach to your peeps, please send me an email or leave me a voice mail.  (and no, I won’t plaster your email all over the internet as I was morally required to do with the CNA question, “….Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”  
 .
I think CNA bought Wyndham some more legal challenges with that one…. seems to violate some EEOC Civil Rights laws that the Courts seem to be holding employers liable for bad deeds of their vendors.  I”m investigating further.)  ;D

“We ARE the media now” …..working like Antz, telling our friends and neighbors about #WorkComp atrocities.

(If you forward my comments to your friends, please be respectful of others in the thread and copy and paste to a new email for their privacy)

Did any of you have a chance to see my piece in this blog and listen to the 3 minute audio of the dude from CNA insurance asking, among other things, “So, tell me Linda, when ARE you going to die?”. Yes, its recorded and all over social media.

See more here: http://lucyoccupy.com/

That conversation might be a civil suit for which my employer, WyndhamWorldwide, may be held culpable as well.

My whole story is in the blog, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains.http://askaboutworkerscompgavytrains.com/ see the blogs and then see the Resource page and the list of posts page.

Each of you are welcomed and encouraged to follow these blogs for updates.

I reached out to one of you recently to meet for coffee and I got a polite “can’t”… It wasn’t a social call.

Are you kidding me??! If y’all can’t bother to explore new opportunities, you’ll die whining.

Somebody else in this group said my posts may be pretty but they are useless. Fine. Block me.

WE are the Media Now. Ain’t nobody gonna help us, so we need to find new strategies.

WorkComp activism can be quite like “anti-nuke” activism……heavily infiltrated and hell bent on keeping people running in square circles, diefying paid mouth-pieces.

Re-read the common wisdom of “the 25 rules of disinformation” and the 8 traits of disinformationists”

Let me know if you get any insights or can share them with your friends and lawyers.

Stay tuned. More coming up, including but not limited to a new website.

If you are interested, send me a 500-700 words general summary of your story….date of injury, extent of injuries, all diagnosis, treatment, complications, pay, ever return to work, on social security, represented now? How many attorneys, prospects for the future. Your age at injury, and age now?
Gender? Overall health today? Better or worse?

Working? What needs to happen for return to work, if an option.

We want at least ten stories to start with. Include employer name and insurer, if you care to. First rounds may be more general and nation and ANONYMOUS.

Write a conclusion to finish this statement:

“The worst thing is ________________________.””What helped me most was:____________________________________””What I want now is:_____________________________________.””The non-psychopaths of the WorkComp industry can best help me, and other injured workers like me, if they will _____________________________.”If I had an open mic and 2 minutes I would say _____________________________________ to (whom/what) ___________________”

Any groups you would recommend? Include their social media links: ________________________________________________

I usually use this hashtag in my posts:
