“…Culpable negligence means recklessly acting without reasonable caution and putting another person at risk of injury or death (or failing to do something with the same consequences)…” 
“….It is clear that workplace injuries have significant crossover effects on Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare, and other programs. While further study will be needed to expose the specific effects of changes in workers’ compensation laws, evidence suggests that the costs of workplace injuries are being shifted not only to injured workers and their families, but also to federal programs….”
Oct 5, 2016 – A new Department of Labor report says cuts to state workers’ comp systems have … U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez on Capitol Hill in April.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! IT DOES NOT!
[That’s just the TIP OF THE ICEBERG! ASK ANY PROFESSIONAL WHO LEFT OR IS LEAVING THE INDUSTRY…ASK ANY INJURED WORKER ABOUT THE …OBSTACLES TO JUSTICE AND CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS….]
DO ATTORNEYS FULFILL THEIR ETHICAL AND MORAL OBLIGATIONS TO INJURED WORKERS IN AMERICA? NO……THE MAJORITY DO NOT.
ASK ANY INJURED WORKER FAILED BY THE SYSTEM WHERE THE CULPABLE NEGLIGENCE SEEMS TO LIE.
Culpable negligence means recklessly acting without reasonable caution and putting another person at risk of injury or death (or failing to do something with the same consequences).
It is the omission to do something which a reasonable, prudent and honest man would do, or the doing something which such a man would not do under all the circumstances surrounding each particular case. [State v. Emery, 78 Mo. 77, 80 (Mo. 1883)]
“The term culpable negligence should be construed to mean a negligence of a higher degree than that which in civil cases is held to be gross negligence, and must be a negligence of a degree so gross as to be tantamount to a wanton disregard of, or utter indifference to, the safety of human life.” [Smith v. State, 197 Miss. 802 (Miss. 1945)]
This week the main question asked was “What is the Injured Workers Support Network?”
WE NEED GROUPS LIKE THIS EVERYWHERE, SO IT WOULD SEEM TO ME, IN EVERY COUNTRY AND EACH OF THOSE COUNTRIES WITH WORKERS THEN MUST CONNECT WITH THE OTHERS. THE INTERNET MAKES IT POSSIBLE. Maybe something like this:
IDWA-USA Injured Disabled Workers Associations – USA is an idea whose time has come. Join in the vision of INJURED DISABLED WORKERS ASSOCIATIONS across the USA to include every State, and around the globe
Contact info is at the end of the brief video… I’ll do what I can to reach out to Rowmen. Perhaps you will, too?
They even invite Injured Worker stories, and probably don’t have nasty ol’ trolls trying to stop them from helping, by threatening “legal action.”

Sidebar: The editor I thought would be able to help ME get YOUR stories properly edited and formatted and ready for ebook didn’t work out. I think the topic of what’s happening is too harsh. “Next!” We may just put it together and e-publish on Create Space and call it ” SURVIVING WORKERS COMPENSATION – Draft 1″ 😀
NOBODY WANTS TO BELIEVE THIS KRAP HAPPENS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY….. UNDERSTAND THAT, AND CONDUCT YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY.

In the USA we have NAIDW.org – a great online resource. Give Jon A. Arbay a shout-out and see if they need any volunteers to help with anything and everything… Maybe Jon will address this group in a FB Note or blog and tell us how we can support them supporting American Injured Workers.
If you are a part of these organizations, please check with your members and bring a post here to this group, identify what sort of help you need, and we’ll see what we can do.
I reached out to some other virtual groups recently; we’ll see how they respond… I’m pretty hopeful that once they grasp the atrocities being committed, they will want to lend a hand.
If any of you have made any progress with establishing your own blog, let me know. Send me the link with WORKCOMP BLOG somewhere in the subject line at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com and start building your email list.
We need “units of service in every state—people to people.” I would imagine the same is required in Canada… province to province?
FB is not enough….
In USA, Injured Workers did not fight against a known industry Workers’ Compensation propaganda blitz that was told about in February, and launched in May, publicly, on their blogs.
If you don’t follow industry blogs, and don’t have your own blog, well, you know the ol’ saying… WITHOUT A BLOG….. INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED AND UNPROTECTED AND SOL.
Anybody there with an interest in saving lives from the WorkComp extermination machinery with some extra blogging etc…#OccupyVirtually….. as if lives depend on it??
There is one active Injured Worker blogger in the USA, to the best of my knowledge. The US Work Comp industry has 22 bloggers shaping public opinion with massive amounts of disinformation.
There are a handful of Injured Worker’s with Facebook pages and groups. A couple posters on LinkedIn. Any other BLOGGERS you have discovered?
I am working on assembling some anonymous injured worker stories (for the protection of the injured workers from retaliation) and I’m working on creating an eCourse to illustrate how to escape the system and regain/reclaim civil and human rights.
Too many injured Workers our “dying on their knees”
The Australians in the above video seem to have a model that works. Any thoughts?
ps What do RADS have to do with Workers’ Compensation, you may opine??!! Think about compromised immune systems, for starters. Google search YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK. Take all necessary precautions. After Fukushima triple nuclear meltdowns in March 2011, many Australians believed the nuclear industry propaganda that they were ‘safe’ in the Southern Hemisphere… that was partially true…for a few weeks. That was a long time ago, and the internet has been seriously ‘scrubbed’ so you don’t have to fret too much about those harsh realities either. Just sayin…
If you skipped physics, just ponder on ‘COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS’ AND HEART ATTACKS … and then cancers and worse… massives die-offs of smaller species are in progress, and who doesn’t know someone who has suddenly and mysteriously and puzzlingling ‘dropped dead’?
So, #Blog and #DodgeTheRads… and think of how you can help your neighbors….whether you are an ol’ timer in WorkComp, a Newbie, or got out and came back to the battle fields to help the Hostages escape…. only the ones willing and able to escape. Stockholm Syndrome survivors will have follow…
