THINK LOCALLY * ACT GLOBALLY
#OccupyVirtually –> It’s dangerous out there!
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW
Few studies discuss the true causes of the absolute failures of the Grand Bargain, known by injured workers as the Grand Work Comp Fraud.
As evidenced at Doctor’s Trials of Nuremberg, when doctors are criminals, there are grave social problems. When the criminal activities of doctors are supported and protected by criminal lawyers, the problems are compounded for all concerned.
Work comp insurance systems are a mega billion dollar crime syndicate, fleecing, maiming, torturing injured workers, causing permanent disabilities and premature deaths for injured workers and reaping extreme profits for the sonderkommando involved.
No, we don’t need more studies. All involved know the truths of the atrocities. But, if more studies are desired, begin to study how cops and firefighters are tortured and abused by the WorkCompsters when injured on the job.
Think harder and include the plight of injured veterans, being denied medically necessary treatments and “incapcitation pay” while self righteous and arrogant psychopaths allege the horror stories are exceptions rather than the rules of the work comp killing games.
When doctors and lawyers and judges and their ilk breach oaths of office… take heart in knowing there are others who take their Oath seriously,
…and will responsibly honor Oath before orders.
Start the 21st Century Doctors and Lawyers Trials in America and Canada and UK. Hold the multinational crime syndicate’s participants accountable for the extermination practices of Workers Compensation Grand Fraud. . . Prepare the gallows.

ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS NOW.
“Follow the money. Always follow the money. “
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.”
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.

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.
May I suggest that the Grancell partners, with your lead, Fred, review this case and consider sending the neuro and psych evaluations to a third party for evaluation of fraud, and failures to provide medically necessary treatment as repeatedly requested since 1/9/12. Copies should likely be sent to the District Attorney, and we can leave that to Shane Riedman? Bruce Leckart’s office might be a good place to start. He is a LinkedIn connection for me and Norin (and I spoke to his office last year, and have been invited to call again with all this new life-threatening krap.)
Attached is the progress report of 1/19/15 with requests for authorization from Dr. Hilda Chalgujian. [not on blog copy; available upon request; no secrets]
Obviously, by yesterday’s US postal service mail, I see the bad faith actions promoted by Grancell continue, and have apparently contributed to your failure to keep your word and send PD advance money, or to advise me of any delay. Mean. I hate mean. Being mean to disabled people is just …. inhumane.
PS, by copy to Wyndham Leave Support, the accommodations I am now requesting since we never engaged in interactive process, necessary since October 2012, am hereby requesting extension of leave of absence to complete one year at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach, which, ideally, will be completed on or before December 1, 2015, at which time I hope to be able to return to work.
At your demand, I spent the $450 to reinstate my lost California Real Estate Broker’s license, and I willl work on getting a new California Notary license in the interim. I have no hope to regain my lost Hawaii real estate license, due to failures of the Wyndham WorkComp program, which is an epic fail, causing permanent brain damage to me. Remember remember…. Dr. Kang, the first neurosychologist I was evaluated by, recommended immediate speech therapy with cognitive remediation, and suggested return to work would happen shortly after that. WHY DIDN’T CNA PROVIDE IMMEDIATE CARE THAT COULD HAVE SAVED MY BRAIN FUNCTIONS. WHY DID WYNDHAM HR AND RISK MANAGEMENT FAIL TO INTERVENE WITH THE WRONG DOINGS OF THEIR VENDORS??? HEINOUS CRIMES OF THE “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES” CROWDS. The law of karma will prevail.
As we discussed, I am willing to consider mediation after this current Coastline session, and before the Summer session, if Grancell has any interest in settlement. Apparently, they do not. Apparently Kim Mall is back in the picture, with her pretenses and file churning. Yech!
I told the Judge I wouldn’t be back to his Court (after my ADA rights were violated again there!) till I found an agency to deal with the allegations of fraud, and my files are building. I haven’t found such an agency yet, and some Super Lawyers have told me it doesn’t matter if have video of fraud being committed to deny medical care; can’t make it stick. WorkComp fraud is too big of a racket. Yeah, maybe. One person and God constitutes an Army, so might be a standoff. Remember David and that Giant!
I was shocked that the Petition received yesterday from Grancell for yet another neuro psych eval was not delivered to me electronically, in compliance with ADA repeated requests, and was delivered by hand to the WCAB Court, to take unfair advantage, as is the pattern of practice. Remember, CNA couldn’t find a neuro-psych in 3 years, what’s changed? I had to find all the brain doctor help I got. I had to pay for most of it.
The bulk of evaluations and recommendations were just profits for the evaluating doctors, and billable lawyer time. How many times and ways does Grancell think it takes to verify a brain injury. Daniel Elliott was told on the phone in January 2012, while I was in session with Dr. Daniel DeGoede, of the possible severe extent of injuries and the urgencies for immediate care. How did Daniel respond? By the PlayBook? ‘Upon verified diagnosis of brain injury, terminate benefits and do all things possible to maim, torture and hopefully kill injured worker, with or without delays.’ ???
CHECK THE EVALUATIONS, RECOMMENDATIONS OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS, AND COMPARE TO ACTUAL TREATMENT, COUNTING OR NOT COUNTING WHAT I HAVE SELF-PROCURED. ACOEM, MTUS, NIH GUIDELINES WERE NOT FOLLOWED, AND IF THIS WASN’T AMERICA, SOME PEOPLE MIGHT BE ARRESTED FOR HAS BEEN DONE TO ME, AND TO OTHERS LIKE ME.
That would include reports of neurologists ( (noting that your first alleged ‘mpn’ neurologist, Esmail Sebti, refused to see me when I appeared for appointment organized through EAP clinical psychologist, Dr. Daniel DeGoede, found through the CIGNA EAP program, as there never has been “proper notice” of the MPN process and network, as Ms. Mall repeatedly mis-states in her threats to various doctors. Dr. Sebti’s office perjured when they indicated I did not appear.)
Dr. Stephen R. Walman, Dr. Bijan Zardouz, Dr. Ronald N Kent, Dr. Michael Lobatz, Dr. Seymour Young, Dr. Jay Jurkowitz
Brain Injury Interdisciplinary Team Members (Scripps, summer 2014, after 1/9/12 injury; time was of the essence, duration at SCRIPPs was requested for 3-6 MONTHS, got 16 days, with extend of 8 days; not in compliance with ACOEM, NIH OR MTUS, huh? By not allowing me to complete that program, that was a waste of $50,000+ of somebody’s money. COASTLINE is approximately $400 a SEMESTER! d’OH.
SCRIPPS – Dr. Michael J. Lobatz, Neurologist; Jessica Martinez, Case Manager, OTR/L, HTC, PAM; Kelly Owen, MA, CCC-SLP; Rebecca Askew, MPT; Margaret Fuller, MA, OT/L.
Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program Consulting Psychologist is Dr. James Pasino. website: coastline.edu (report pending)
JAUDY TREATMENT CENTER – Dr. Gilbert Jaudy – Functional Neurology Practice
Dr. Hilda Chalgujian, current PTP NeuroPsychologist ( since Dr. Bergey, former PTP, has withdrawn from the case and is no longer willing to attempt to facilitate treatment, as repeatedly attempted for nearly 2 years.)
Dr. Marcel Ponton, QME and Psychologist (unsure if he is a neuro-psychologist, he was former PTP, and tests were done by associate Dr. Gunn, and 4 talk-therapy session with his associate Dr. Chung. Terminated after threat from Ms. Mall on false allegations that she had not received his reports, and even with several proofs of service, she repeatedly omitted his records, skewing reports of AME/QME doctors, and causing substantial billable hours for file churning and Court time, well documented; check EAMS for the last one.)
Dr. Daniel DeGoede, referred by Wyndham Worldwide EAP program for extreme confusion after the injury of 1/9/12.
Dr. Eileen Kang, Neuropsychologist, referred by Dr. DeGoede and authorized by Daniel Elliott.
As I indicated, I have found my voice in social media, and if Grancell chooses to represent Wyndham and CNA in such a manner that I continue blogging to expose the horrors I have endured, and continue to endure at the hands of all parties of this WorkComp fiasco, so be it. We can do this for years. It may have to be chalked up to “vocational rehab” that has also been denied.
I have also applied for a MENSA scholarship to help with the ABI Program expenses, and other financial aid.
By the way, radiation levels are up all over the Coast…. shhhhhhhhh……. ‘forgotten meters measure no radiation’….ask a physicist! Let me know if you want more facts on that. Friends don’t let Friends Stay Ignorant; #ELE Alerts still in progress
So, it’s a challenge whether or not I really want to fight so hard to get back to Coastline vs. sheltering in place, and limiting rad exposure, for what that’s worth these days. Wyndham won’t let me return to work because I didn’t get the medically necessary treatment, and CNA won’t authorize medically necessary treatment, so it’s back to that ‘circle jerk’ thing. CNA stopped paying TTD 5/8/14, and did not pay the 104 weeks, but through funny accounting, got away with it, and apparently, it was ‘legal’ even though morally reprehensible.
Please note from Dr. Hilda Chalgujian’s report:
Attached also is a response to me from the US Department of Labor — Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs dated 12/31/14. (posted earlier on Twitter)
Please note that the LTD provider’s IME evaluations of 11/8/14 and 1/2/15 resulted in ‘medical certification through December 1, 2015.’ I’m going to Coastline to get as much care and information as can so that eventually I can reconstruct some sort of life, which includes but is not limited to ensuring that crooked doctors and lawyers are slowed down from killing people like me, and My Fellow Americans.
As you know, I will be at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury program starting tomorrow, through May 31, 2015, assuming funds clear. I have also initiated a fund raising campaign to help sustain me since Wyndham and CNA have failed me miserably, and have caused permanent brain damage in the process. The neuro-psychological battery of tests report from Coastline in October 2014 will be available soon. This is a State Funded program, and their funding relies, in part, on showing measurable improvements of the small, select group of brain injured people. I am fortunate to have found them, and although Daniel Elliott, CNA former adjuster, refused to even investigate it let alone authorize it in May of 2014, violating the legal requirements again to have been proactive in facilitating medical care.
It seems to me that the defense firm is continuing churning of files, with apparent hope to provoke me to file the FEHA claim due to the continued refusals of Wyndham, apparently at the direction of Grancell-Novato, to refuse to engage in interactive process for return to work. Professional intervention for the interactive process was paid for in the brief treatment in the summer of 2014 at the Scripps Brain Injury Day Treatment program. Why Wyndham refused to engage is a mystery to SCRIPPS and to all my acquaintances in the “industry” as it subjects Wyndham to a lawsuit that could create legal fees in excess of $700,000, I am told. I suppose there is hope by Grancell that they will be retained to defend such a claim? Is that double-dipping?
As you know, I am expecting from you an advance on permanent disability funds so that I can resume treatment at the State Funded program for cognitive rehabilitation at Coastline Community College – Acquired Brain Injury Program. I had hoped to receive the funds prior to departure for Newport Beach. I did not receive anything further from you.
I am grateful that Wyndham Worldwide has authorized travel vouchers to reduce the costs for my stay while attending the Mon-Thu, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm program. The hotel is nearby, and because I stayed there, again, at my own cost because of the continued failures by CNA to provide medically necessary treatments, I can’t just lay down and die, as the carrier and defense may wish me to do.
Here is an excerpt from Dr. Bergey’s final report, and they cancelled my scheduled appointment for January 9, 2015 because of the MMI-Orthopedic determination, and, as was known when Dr. Bergey was designated at PTP by Kimberly Mall of Grancell and Valerie James of WCAB – Info and Officer during a hearing in which I was not allowed to be seen or heard by a Judge until they had sufficiently emotionally battered me to agree to another Orthopedic Surgeon to “coordinate treatment”.
I’m get tired of trying to convey the vile situation I have been exposed to, like right now tire. They call it COGNITIVE FATIGUE. I gotta finish and send this, without edits.
I have to pack to get to Coastline, and I don’t want to fuss with Kim Mall or Stewart Reubens. I consider them both to be pure enemies of humanity, and pathetically polite in their attempts to appear human. I nearly spit when I saw her “respectful’ and snakey appeal to the Judge.
I will be happy to consider mediation in June. I will not be happy if you continue to f—k with this final attempt to get some help at Coastline so I can resume life, in some manner.
So, if you’re sending me the money you promised, please do so, and if you can wire it, all the better. I will have limited email access and no snail mail access.
I will be forwarding the medical bills that arrived in December for your payment, as that slip and fall was also clearly a consequence of cognitive impairements.
I’m sorry I feel like you tricked me again. It’s so ugly, but when I saw Kim’s signature, I know what to prepare for.
I don’t want to fool with any of you while I’m at Coastline. I will if I must, be assured of that.

WorkComp is not an employee benefit. It would make Hitler’s heart sing, from the grave! Monday is Ground Hog Day. Yeah, we were warned!
Adjuster asked, “Just to confirm what address would you like the PD advance sent to, thanks.”
Grancell now begging Court for #WorkComp fraud investigations of AME/QME? Or just churning the file? Maybe the District Attorney will reopen the investigations? Nothing seemed to happen beyond ‘your claims have some merit’ in 2013 and 2014.
Or are they positioning for a very expensive FEHA violation lawsuit? Or more?
Injured Worker is still ready/willing/able to cooperate in efforts to save the lives of other injured workers from WorkComp med/legal chicanery. It may be good for the CorporatePrison Profits?
Hey, the Long Term Disability provider agrees with their IME report that the one year treatment at Coastline Community College Acquired Brain Injury Program is a good idea and they have me ‘medically certified’ as Temporarily Totally Disabled until December 1, 2015.
RELIANCE/MATRIX HAS A PROFESSIONAL TEAM, AND THEY HAVE HONORED THIS SELF-PURCHASED LONG TERM DISABILITY POLICY WITH GRACE AND RESPECT FOR FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITIES. They have always been kind and polite, and patient with my clearly evidence TBI consequences. WHY CAN’T CNA BE LIKE THAT?
Wassup now, Stewart and Kim? Did you ever figure out that the “brain” is indeed a body part located in the head?
Grancell wants me to endure yet another battery neuro-psychology evaluation…. is that called “Dr Shopping” since there was two in early 2012 (all requests for treatment failed), a forensic psych in 2013, along with two neurology evals with doctors with zero expertise in brain injury—– alll three ‘industry leased/owned’ doctors…. then in 2014, 3 more batteries of neuro-psych tests….and then a swathe of Corvel doctors to non-recommend the reports and requests of about 30 others doctors? What’s really going on here? How many reports does the defense need to grasp the meanings behind all the reported ICD-9 diagnosis? Jeeeeez! I could administer these tests by now, due to practice effect! Oh, that’s right. You don’t read the reports, you just churn them? “Defending your clients”… Yeah. By the way, I am injured under the CNA policy, and you have apparently caused CNA to continuously breach that fiduciary responsibility to me.
Tell that to the Judge, too, huh?
Omission of medical records to those 3 doctors in 2013 sure set them up for some pretty flawed reports, didn’t they? The Court made you provide the omitted records to the first two industry owned/leased doctors, then you repeated the process again with the third, without consequences? We’ll see, won’t we.
I suggested to Fred this week that after the next session at Coastline, ending May 31, 2015, we could consider reevaluation and mediation….. read on to find out how Grancell’s handles a Brain Injury Claim. It’s a well documented pattern of practice of harm. That does not address the refusals to engage in interactive process and other Civil Rights Violations.
THINK LOCALLY. ACT GLOBALLY. OCCUPY VIRTUALLY. YEAH.
Silly me. Medical care and disability benefits–temporary or permanent, are not part of the CNA coverage, are they? Date of injury: 1/9/12. File churning stilll going on, and Wyndham refuses to request a #ClaimAudit. Meanwhile, the life of another InjuredWorker in America gets the shrug and sigh, with a quiet, “Ain’t it awful, folks?” Why does Wyndham pay these people to harm injured workers and fail to monitor the activities of the Wyndham vendors? It’s not personal? It is when it happens to you!!
Fred (CNA) and Tina (WYN) and I got things sorted out, so I have the discount vouchers for a Wyndham hotel to stay in while I am at the Coastline Community College Acquired Brain Injury program, a State funded, and State Department of Rehabilitation approved program.
Fred was going to advance funds since defense…. acts like it does. The check was expected today. What a surprise!
I wasn’t even fussing that they continue to fail to authorize treatment, often requested for the past 3 years. Monsters, simply enemies of humanity. Well. It is what it is. Let’s keep moving. Read on. You might learn something that may be revolutionary to WorkComp, and might save a life, perhaps your own.
Let’s recap and review, shall we? These are for Norin, Stewart, Kim, Thomas, Fred and Shane et al. I think they may be trying to make Fred the Fall guy.

WE AIM TO PLEASE…………READ ON IF YOU HAVE A JOB, HAD A JOB, HOPE TO HAVE A JOB, OR ARE IN THE ‘INDUSTRY’….
INJURED WORKER / ADJUSTER EXCHANGE, LAST WEEK, TO FACILITATE SELF-PROCURED TREATMENT AT COASTLINE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, STATE FUNDED, ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM OF NATIONAL ACCLAIM.
Adjuster: “I received your email and I wanted to make sure I was understanding your request. Are you asking for a $5,000 permanent disability advance to be deducted from future settlement?”
InjuredWorker: “Are you asking for a $5,000 permanent disability advance to be deducted from future settlement?” Yes if/and/then,….and $10K would be even more helpful if/and/then…..”
“An advance would also allow me to ‘take my foot off the gas pedal’ on blogging, then at the end of the 16 weeks, if Stewart et al agree it’s possibly ‘ripe for mediation’ we can move forward to settlement, if there is any interest in so doing. I have found my voice on Social Media, so we can do this for years, till last gasps, if that’s what Stewart wants. At least when I am blogging, I feel like I am making a difference in the lives of other injured workers.”
Adjuster: “Just to confirm what address would you like the PD advance sent to, thanks.”
RATHER THAN A CHECK IN THE MAIL FROM THE ADJUSTER, A PETITION FOR ORDER ASSIGNING SECOND PANEL QME was received from Defense Counsel.
Defense counsel continues to deny ADA requests for electronic communications, knowing full well that the rural post office is more than 5 miles from home. Continued chicanery. The request was apparently “hand delivered” to the Court House on 1/29/15 for further advantage, since Defense knows that injured worker is preparing to commence treatment on Monday at Coastline Community College ABI program, causing continued financial hardship to injured worker.
Is this simply more file churning or does the Defense rely on colllusion of WCAB to extend the failures to medical care for over 3 years. Defense cites reports from 2013, AME/QME that are egregiously flawed with clear intent to deny medical care, and none of those 3 reports have any expertise in brain injury diagnosis, nor treatment, evidenced by their recommendations along lines of ‘over the counter analgesics’ and no speech therapy, no EEG with medical correlation, no MRI, no neuro-optometry, no help whatsoever, ca-ching, ca-ching, ca-ching.
Initial reports were based on medical evidence that omitted more than 300 pages of 2012 reports, and these doctors then, upon being provided with the omitted 2012 reports for supplemental reports ca-ching ca-ching ca-ching….. rather than revise the inaccuracies of their reports, they simply falsely claimed that said records were evidence of pre-existing symptoms, including visits to the EAP appointed doctor directly after the injury, and initial neuro-psychological evaluations, authorized by the adjuster in February 2012, all recommendations ignored by adjuster and defense counsel. Bla bla bla. (see blogs at https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts)
So. PD, according to the WCAB site, is to commence at an estimated figure within 14 days of cessation of TD payments, which was May 8, 2014. Defense counsel, when asked for the advance, simply responded, ‘what makes you think you are entitled to any PD?’
Adjuster asked, “Just to confirm what address would you like the PD advance sent to, thanks.”
Well well well…. silly silly me.
Maybe the Bruce Leckhart forensic psych group could save some Court time and do a forensic review of the egregiously faulty 2013 QME/AME reports and compare to real doctor reports. I meant to call his office last week, but, I forgot. Short term memory and excitement about getting to to Coastline for ABI treatment created higher priorities. Everybody knows there’s no credibility to a QME/AME report when offenders derive bulk income from #InjuredWorker Cash Cows, don’t they?
Maybe not. Perhaps it’s too heavy an issue for a private group; perhaps it’s time for the District Attorney to step up and step in?
WELL, CNA has not paid TD benefits since May 8, 2014, and got a bonus of approximately $16,000 from the EDD Department of the State of California for it’s egregious refusal to pay TD benefits in 2012/2013.
No check arrived this week; no follow up from adjuster, just more legal nonsense and file churning. They want to again interfere with my last chances for any rehablitation, like they did for all self-procured care that was obtained because of their egregious refusals. Stewart and Kim think they are smarter than people from the DOD when it comes to brains? I think not. “Book ’em, Dano!”
WE, THE PEOPLE, CAN HOPE, HUH?
