How’s that Workers Compensation National Discussion Coming along? Is it over?
Remember Remember the Words of David DePaolo, RIP:
The brokerage community has been successful for many years in steering the fraud debate towards the most minuscule part of fraud: injured workers; a segment of the fraud population that is so small that insurance companies comically seek big attention for thwarting a criminal act that typically does not amount to more than $10,000 in damage.
Where is the outcry, however, when brokers suck $4 billion out of a system on clever reinsurance chicanery (see our various stories and articles on Unicover) so they can make a half-billion dollars in fees? Why isn’t the Employer’s Fraud Task Force and other self-appointed overseers of malicious intent and do-gooders directing their energies towards identification of the white collar criminals guilty of bid rigging? Where are our district attorneys, whose offices are flush with workers’ compensation fraud fighting money, when clear evidence of outright insurance company misreporting of work comp premium occurs? Is Eliot Spitzer, formerly New York’s Attorney General and now that state’s governor, the only politician who seems to be bothered by large scale white collar crime?
WHY IS IT THAT NOBODY GIVES A DAMN IN THIS INDUSTRY ABOUT BIG MONEY FRAUD? – David DePaolo
Next Up? Workers Compensation Industry blogs…. who is telling the truth and who is just serving the industry in a business model of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES
“It is also this particular demographic that is ill prepared to NOT work – the baby boomer generation still lives pay check to pay check; in other words they MUST work…”
“Yet, AARP (nor most other organizations) does absolutely no education to their constituents and members about work place injuries, about workers’ compensation or how the system works, leaving this demographic especially vulnerable to surprise, or worse, abuse.”
“I guess this isn’t really a surprise. Nearly no one educates the working population about workers’ compensation, or any work injury program, until it’s too late, after an injury occurs (or is claimed).”
Posts about David DePaolo written by AskAboutWorkCompGravyTrains. … If you are an Injured Worker, tell your story to ProPublica, and blog on! ….. When I called AARP a few months ago, apparently for United Health Care, the first question …
David DePaolo – Executive – WorkCompCentral – After practicing workers’ compensation law for nearly 18 years, I founded and grew … daviddepaolo.blogspot.com …. AARP has a big section on their website about working at age 50 and over.
My Fellow Americans, you are being called upon to intervene in the national disaster masked as “Workers Compensation” in which the working class is being tortured, maimed and murdered for the profits of the few.
Some industry ‘leaders’ think renaming it will do some good. Injured Workers suggest renaming it to call it what it is: WORKERS’ EXTERMINATION – USA
Injured Workers to Update Congress on Workers’ Compensation Crisis of Hyper Corruption. What do you think Congress needs to do first? Join in creating a LinkedIn group to discuss and craft a letter back to the ten, plus the few more concerned about Nuclear Workers poisoned by radiation over the years.
The award winning expose by ProPublica and NPR, shared by ‘swaths’ of bloggers, brought you an excellent and in depth investigative report on the ongoing horrors and atrocities. Insult to Injury THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION. It is just the tip of the iceberg, and we hope that the investigative teams, and others, will dig deeper and expose more. ENCORE!
YOU IGNORED IT? DOES THAT MAKE YOU COMPLICIT IN THE CRIMES AGAINST THE WORKING CLASS FOR THE PROFITS OF THE FEW? READ WHAT YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES HAD TO SAY IN OCTOBER.
The response from the Secretary of Labor essentially said the department’s hands are tied, too bad, how sad, deal with it. That response needs a re-do and needs to include a request to send in protection for Injured Workers and Other Taxpayers across America. There is essentially no law enforcement and there appears to be substantial collusion and many unclean hands in high places.
I, personally, have been personally disparaged in diatribes – publicly and nationally – by senior members of the Workers Compensation communities in what can only appear to be an attempt to SILENCE me and others by ANY MEANS NECESSARY. These attacks have been by professionals, carefully crafted with clear intent to harm and silence – by ‘leading experts’ in the field.
HOW RUDE IS THAT!As a member of a further protected class, thanks to “WorkComp,” I do what I can to help Injured Workers ESCAPE the system with their lives and what is left of their destroyed health. Einstein reminds that ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the DUTY to act.” I KNOW. I ACT.
As many of you may know, even a ‘hurt shoulder’ can result in an excruciating long drawn out death for an Injured Worker in America and beyond.
I am an older American woman with Disabilities, a TBI and I AM a WorkComp Survivor. I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORKCOMP SURVIVOR. I ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO BLOG, TOO! BLOG TO REGAIN CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS and to protect the Constitution of these United States of America.
Workers Compensation torture and travesties are happening in your state, too.
They are happening in Canada, the UK and Australia.
It is time to THINK LOCALLY – ACT GLOBALLY – OCCUPY VIRTUALLY AND DEMAND INVESTIGATIONS AND TRIALS FOR THESE CRIMES, CORRUPTION AND COLLUSION that serve only the WorkCompsters, and harm all others, including other great American systems.
Below is the 2016 ‘top’ bloggers, picked by their own industry…. See what they are writing about the state of workers compensation. If they are truth telling or sugar coating to preserve profits, let the facts be widely known.
Which are purveyors of propaganda and deceptions and omissions, with intent to deceive the unsuspecting public, while maiming, impoverishing and killing Injured and Disabled people, along with bulling, threats, intimidation and worse, ABA Codes of Ethics may also have been violated.
There is no remorse when WorkCompsters indicate that the wrong doings are “not a secret.” At least ‘Super Lawyers’ say the same thing with a tone of saddness. What does tell you?
Are these torturers, maimers, and killers really above the law in America? In Canada? In Great Britain? In Australia? Around the World? HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN GOING ON? I am so sorry; I just found out in 2012.
Put all of this to good use further reflection and discussion in your groups.
(The WorkCompsters are having a ‘Workers Compensation National Discussion’ and seemed to need a gentle reminder that a ‘circle jerk’ is NOT A NATIONAL SUMMIT. Attacking injured workers for invoking First Amendment rights in efforts to silence may send WorkCompsters straight to the 5th Amendment, wouldn’t you imagine? It will certainly not serve identifying real problems and coming up with real solutions, will it. In fact, the attacks appear to be based in mysognism and psychopathy. (Read the attacks and draw your own conclusions.)
The perpetrators’ credibility has been totally destroyed by their own failures. Those poorly executed attacks include appearances of failures to fact check, omissions with intent to deceive to protect illicit profits, ‘masked bandits’ media images, clandestine meetings ‘in Dick Cheney’s garage’ and ‘smoke and mirrors’ attacks on the population impoverished and harmed by the WorkComp industries, giving the few ‘the good life’ — WHILE DESTROYING THE WORKING CLASS.
One Percenter Suggests Occupy Everything?! #OccupyVirtually and #DodgeTheRads – READ ON – then #OccupyWorkComp!
“”What sets me apart, I think, is a tolerance for risk and an intuition about what will happen in the future. Seeing where things are headed is the essence of entrepreneurship. And what do I see in our future now?…”
The perpetrators of crimes against Injured Workers and Taxpayers truly epitomize the 21st Century Sonderkommando, wouldn’t you agree?
See the movie, Concussion, for the playbook strategy of holding a fake conference to make a false point, as NFL did. See how it took a CORONER to bring a little justice, and that fight is still raging in the WorkComp dark and smoky back rooms, isn’t it?)
If you are part of a Civil Rights and Human Rights organization, let’s connect.
To borrow a quote from Josepth Ranseth of Canada, ‘don’t create a new business plan, START A MOVEMENT’ or words to that effect! Check it out here and read Joseph’s blogs, too. Download his ‘PURPOSE DRIVEN MARKETING MANIFESTO” and do some good where are you, and do it today.
I am receiving more stories from Injured Workers around the world, and ProPublica clearly has a back-log of stories. LET’S DO SOMETHING GOOD ON THE PLANET, WHILE WE STILL CAN. TIME FOR TRIALS AND TIME FOR CHANGE.
Our global legal systems may be in a state of collapse, but We, The People, are the media now. WHAT SAY YOU?

Tip of the iceberg, huh? DA’s offices under funded and understaffed to deal with the real numbers, but it’s a start, huh? https://lnkd.in/bV92a-C #InjuredWorkersUniting! #SilentNoMore because WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW
With a nudge from DOL and DOJ, per the Congressional letter of October 2015, maybe the DAs can do a better job in 2016. Kudos for what they did do. They must do more. A hotline for Injured Workers to report suspected fraud could save millions….lives and dollars.
I received an inquiry from an investigative reporter in the UK…. topic? MAXIMUS. I suggested they will be busy writing investigative reports….likely for YEARS AND YEARS. I asked for a link to the documentary when it is done. I said it might save lives in the USA.
Does America have any Civil Rights attorneys anymore?
Injured Workers in CA seeking new legal counsel – Orange County and San Diego
CAN YOU RECOMMEND COUNSEL FOR INJURED WORKERS FIGHTING FOR LIFE WITH SEDGWICK IN California and/or Minnesota? Or a Mediator with successful fights for Injured Workers against Sedgwick?
As an Injured Worker and blogger with a case that reached resolution with quite little thanks to CAAA members, Injured Workers are reaching out to me for help.
All I can basically tell them is “blog like hell, and scream like your life depends on it, because it does.” And I can pass on advice given to my by doctors and lawyers, “Get out of the work comp system as fast as you can, by any means necessary. It will kill you.” Yeah, doctors and lawyers told me that, WorkComp doctors and lawyers. Can’t make that stuff up!
I had been invited to the CAAA 50th Anniversary dinner this coming Saturday, but the CAAA office staff made if quite clear, with great contempt and disdain, that INJURED WORKERS ARE NOT WELCOME and the registration was apparently lost, just like so many medical records in the WorkComp systems.. Alrighty then, when one thing doesn’t work, we do other things.
CAN YOU REFER ANYBODY WITH ANY SUCCESS REPRESENTING INJURED WORKERS AGAINST SEDGWICK IN CALIFORNIA?
Today I received another call from a woman in her mid-40’s, a case eerily similar to the Charles Romano case. It is over 20 years old, and has gone from bad to worse. In recent weeks, I have been in communication with the family of a woman in her 40’s, eerily similar to the Charles Romano case.
Since I am unable to attend the #CAAA conference this week to hear Alan Gurvey’s “PUBLIC FORUM” on medical treatment for Injured Workers, and David DePaolo, Tom Martin and Keith More on The ProPublica/NPR Investigative Reports: Affecting change, I can meet with one of the the Sedgwick victims and show her and her husband how to blog. I may meet with the others via Skype and show them how to blog.
#WoW…. it’s indeed a War On Workers. It’s horrifying to listen to the tales of younger workers being maimed and their lives destroyed for the profit and greed and psychopathY of the few. They have been taught to blame Arnold. What a deception. It’s much deeper than any one politician. There truly seems to be little hope for the American working class.
Let’s see what, if anything, comes out of the CAAA convention…
I hope the gentlemen handling the panel on ProPublica and The Demolition of Workers Compensation discussions GIVE ‘EM HELL.
I don’t think David, Tom and Keith will sugar coat the horrors they are fully cognizant of in the California system.
Let’s hope next convention they open the doors to Injured Workers, whom they allege to represent. (The privilege I had in 2014 to visit in the CAAA Winter Convention Exhibit Hall… may have saved my life. I did meet some wonderful and powerful people of goodwill. Too bad no other injured workers will get that opportunity, at least not via CAAA.)
I think all providers need to do a survey of Injured Worker clients to get a reality check on ‘SATISFACTION” levels.
CALIFORNIA WINS AT #WORKCOMP AGAIN!
“The top six of our top ten fraud cases of 2015 are from California, a perennnial offender.”
Tip of the iceberg, huh? DA’s offices under funded and understaffed to deal with the real numbers, but it’s a start, huh?
IMHO, CAAA has nothing at all to ‘celebrate’ as long as injured workers are being maimed and killed by legislated and supported fraud. Maybe they should create a self-help training course for self-represented Injured Workers…. more lives might be spared.
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.
Nevertheless, they need competent legal representation. Can you recommend anybody in Orange County/ San Diego areas who can take over currently represented cases that have had the same attorney (respectively) for more than 20 years? The “2-attorney-rule” does not apply, so these Injured Workers must make a smart decision if they decide upon change.
It’s time to RESTORE CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS TO INJURED WORKERS NOW, wouldn’t you agree?
Thank you for your consideration. Several of you are quite familiar with my case, my blogs, and that we reached resolution. Some suggest I shrug, and turn my back on my fellow Americans still in the WorkComp system.
There is NO mention of the R word. FB doesn’t like the words radiation and nuclear…. so there was probably no problem with posting it.
See what some officials are calling it. Don’t many LA attorneys live out near Porter Ranch? This information may enhance understanding of the term ‘Sonderkommando’ and what happened to them then, and the future of the 21st Century Sonderkommando.
Lucy Occupy & Friends say #Blog4TheCure
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW
We say THANK YOU as Injured Worker, James D. Tangorre honorably shares in ‘fighting the good fight’ in communications to political representatives and members of the Workers’ Compensation communities in his January 7, 2016 letter and on-going blogs and videos.
WORK COMP IS AN EPIC FAIL ……….. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem and will be held accountable…. It is time to RESTORE CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS TO INJURED WORKERS NOW.
“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW”
Read the letter by James Tangorre – A New York Injured Worker
“….But not for the WC system failure, Mr. Di Pippo would not have lost his right leg with no possibility of receiving a prosthetic. I will not turn my back on any fellow American whatsoever. You, Senator, can make the difference… are you willing to make the stand and help?
Then, catch your breath, and take another look at this blog:
The Workers’ Comp Industrial Complex! Stop! Hey! What’s That Sound? Note the political representatives and others who have gone on record as being quite concerned about Workers Compensation in America. Many WorkCompsters call such stories ‘hyperbole’…. Many Many Injured Workers know the extreme harsh realities of the atroacities of America’s Workers Compensation systems.
“WorkComp is a slow kill – Rads are a sure kill.” See who else is demanding investigations about nuclear programs as well…. The similarities? Connect the dots! BOTH INDUSTRIES, WORK COMP AND NUCLEAR, Operate from the PlayBook of “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES”…. Who else isn’t doing their job? Who has broken their Oath?
MAKE IT A GREAT WEEK! Count your blessings that you can work, and that you have a job you can go to! Not everybody is so lucky, particularly anybody injured at work. It’s a brutal system….’the shower on the left or the shower on the right’ are the choices seriously injured, disabled and older workers face!
REMEMBER REMEMBER TO PUT PEOPLE BEFORE PROFITS….. It’s how the world is meant to be…..because….WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW PS #DodgeTheRads —> It’s dangerous out there!
#WorkComp! #WorkCompsters? Hmph. ASK ABOUT SURVIVING WORK COMP IN YOUR STATE AND NATION, TOO. IMAGINE #CommitteesOfBloggers — Injured Workers Telling What’s Really Going on…. Here are some thoughts and resources… https://lnkd.in/bJNuZzt– and a list of posts since Summer 2013 https://lnkd.in/btH3gtS because WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW
#WorkCompStinks and is verrrry slow. What if there was a statute of limitations for #WorkComp claims? If the insurance carrier does not provide enough medical care within, for example, 104 weeks, settlement becomes mandatory & return to work possible? Gov Brown…are you & Christine Baker & Ronnie Caplane and pals listening? I’ve been off work HOW LONG on the rest & wait & wait & wait programs?!!! How much money does the State lose to the insurance peeps on this one? Nevermind what it costs me, huh? Hmph. ADJ8181903. FYI. Thanks. ‘No need to thank me; it’s what I do’ Linda & Friends
“…You know, I would not be in this mess if it was not for Wyndham’s Workers Compensation schtick. Without it…”
Opinings by Injured Worker on how different the Outcome of the workplace injury may have been without WorkCompster interference. Legitimate medical care, swift and expert, could have made the difference between return to work in 2012, and permanent disabilities and looking at Assisted Living and Memory Care for the near future. WTF Wyndham, what’s wrong with you people?!
How many evaluations are required for how many years before an Injured Worker gets medical care for a Brain Injury and release for return to work? 4? 5? 10? 20? That sure is starting to sound like “never, we hope you die” plan, doesn’t it? 47 face to face evaluations, and approximately 20 CorVel employees and “Physician Advisors” on reams of regurgitation reports, written by what seems to be rapid-fire-copy-and-paste and make stuff up if not known, due to lost or omitted medical records.
Most all the doctors who have touched this case to date are listed, with the SSA exceptions. Their “clinical psychologist” suggest that although neuro-optometrists reported severe vision processing issues, that I could consider a new career as a “crossing guard” (Goodness, would you want your kids helped across busy streets by a disabled person with auditory and vision processing issues, untreated issues?! Kid hater, huh?) It’s shocking. The list will be sorted soon by CompLaude nominees and ProPublic investigations nominees, for what it’s worth.
How important is an ENT evaluation when neurologists, neuro-optometrists, physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons and chiropractors and neuropsychologists have have all made very extensive reports with very comprehensive treatment recommendations for nearly 4 years? File c-h-u-r-n-i-n-g…..? It is a felony?
How about when it includes deceptions and false statements and omission of medical records with intent to deny medical care? Golly, it’s too much, and recent correspondence from defense seems to suggest they have “Judges in their Pockets”…. Bummer.
Hi Tina, [Wyndham Worldwide representative] Thanks. I’ll look forward to hearing from you early next week.
My patience is real thin these days, as so much more harm has been caused to me in the continuous pattern and practice of delay/deny/deceive in hopes that I die. 3D is what NFL families call such treatment. I’m not sure what CNA calls it, “Business as Usual” or just “Profits Before Lives By Any Means Necessary”?
Stewart and Fred don’t respond either.
I was recapping my story to someone today and said out loud, “You know, I would not be in this mess if it was not for Wyndham’s Workers Compensation schtick. Without it, I would have been able to see legitimate doctors, get legitimate evaluations, legitimate AND IMMEDIATE MEDICAL CARE, and the probability that I could have returned to work in 2012 was high. One doctor, Ponton, as you may recall, tried to release me to work in October 2012, despite his failure to secure medical care and expert evaluations.
I remember the first neuro-pscyhologist said that with speech therapy with cognitive remediation, I’d probably return to work in a few months. That was February 2012.
Instead of legitimate care, I have had to fight for my life, spend a small fortune on getting basic medical care for survival, and find the most vile legal chicanery I’ve never seen before in my life.
Now I get to think about “assisted living” and “future medical” and “dementia” and “epilepsy” since I didn’t get anything close to what legal guidelines for medical care for a clearly diagnosed head injury merits, and I’ve been bullied and badgered and threatened and abused by the “defense” and their leased/owned doctors who seem to lie on demand for the big bucks, and zero help from the insurance carrier. Even the CNA mis-statements of benefits to multiple agencies continues to cause me harm.
I spoke to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program today, as today was the “drop out deadline”…. I cried a lot because I told them how excited I was that Sunday, 8/23/15, to be returning, then I got your email pretending like you never got the message that since I hadn’t heard from anyone, August RTW was out, and we were back on 12/14/15 schedule. Then, because of more chicanery, and now the ENT evaluation court gig is pushed to October….. and ….. well, as you can see, if I had legitimate insurance coverage, I would have even had legitimate EEGs, MRIs, speech and occupational therapy, vision therapy and more… all in 2012, and back at work. Wyndham employees –as you well know, have terrific benefits.
Coastline assured me I am welcome back any time, and we set a tentative goal of October 19th, so that I will have only missed a few weeks. By then, the CNA/SSA/EDD skewed mess of who paid what may be sorted and I can resume what little hopeful strategies are next. Since another two weeks have gone by that you couldn’t repond, and it looks like anther week or more for anything tangible to be addressed….I’ll aim again for return to Coastline 10/19 and return to work 12/14/15. I am not sure if your communication response times meets guidelines of reasonable, but I see there is nothing I can do about that either.
My life has been destroyed because I tried to help my co-workers get in to the office when we were locked out during a snow storm? Nearly 4 years of my life gone…. and the future looking quite grim.
I hope, Tina, you have learned something from the harm that has been caused to me. The FBI agent asked, out loud, how can they sleep at night. as I told some of the horrors I have experienced at the hands of the Wyndham Worldwide mockery of a work comp program. I just told the agent, “Well, psychopaths have no trouble sleeping. No compassion, no empathy, and they simply pretend to be human.”
Another holiday weekend coming up for all complicit in harming me….. and I have yet another empty weekend in limbo, wondering what’s next.
I am doing all I can to encourage other Injured Workers in America to share their stories with the good peeps at ProPublica… you might have seen that new blog….. maybe you’ll find time to read it this holiday weekend:
Thanks for your response. Talk soon. I don’t know why you can’t just tell me when the next sales training classes are, so at least I could have a bit of hope about something.
Linda Ayres, In Pro Per
Will someone from some Law Enforcement Agencies kindly review this complaint, and send it to the DIR et al for further investigation? DOJ probably needs a copy for ongoing RICO violations? Don’t be scared of the insurance industry thugs…. they seem to be mostly cowards and psychopaths, who take delight in harming injured workers. They would never last in a penitentiary.
What kind of Department would demand that someone with a Brain Injury represent self after failures to retain competent legal counsel that understand that there IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BROKEN FINGER AND A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY? What kind of society would allow such of abuse, for the profits of the few.
Here is a quote we thought you might find interesting. “Every worker in California is protected by state laws governing the right to be paid correctly, be safe at work and receive benefits if they are injured on the job,” – Christine Baker https://www.dir.ca.gov/DIRNews/2014/2014-75.pdf
Super Lawyers in California say this case is not unusual, AT ALL. MY MY MY. Hardly seems legitimate, does it? Be sure to read the letter to Human Resources below, that explains how if there was WORKERS COMPENSATION maze and hoops to jump through, legitimate medical care may have resulted in return to work within months, not the ongoing charade of file churing that has been continuous for nearly 4 years. With legitimate health insurance, the process would have been simplied to: 1) see a doctor 2) see specialists as recommended 3) get treatment 4) return to work.
Current status is yet another delay, with ADA violations and Civil rights violations for a Court Hearing on a Petition for an Order to Compel yet another evaluation, this time by an ENT doctor. Note, Injured Worker objects to yet another evaluation, with more than 200 pages of medical records omitted with apparent intent to continue to deny medical care, inaccurate placement of medical records create a false impression of an EEG with clearly diagnosed brain injury as of “2010” and…..misleading statements by defense firm to continue the misleading statements and false allegations perpetrated by the Defense and supported by certain AME/QME doctors and the Information and Assistance Officer.
False/incorrect statements of disability benefits have apparently provided by the carrier to agencies such as EDD and SSA. EDD rewarded the carrier with a bonus of nearly $20,000 for cost shifting and for refusing to pay TTD and for refusing repeatedly to provide medical care. Penalties for failures to pay in accordance with the law have not been received, and the WCAB – Audit unit has a swath of complaints against all parties, as Injured Worker has had to pay more than $43,000 for medical miles, medical evaluation (including MRI and EEG) and medical TREATMENT.
Take a look at the list of doctors. Can you tell which have been naughty, and which have been nice, and which will likely rely heavily on the 5th Amendment of the Constitution of these United States of America. The “officials list” of possibly complicit parties is also available to ‘proper authorities’.
ADJ8181903 – Witnessed slip and fall backwards on ice in Big Bear California, January 9, 2012 – Brain Injury
WorkComp Authorized Treatments, with Primary Treating Physician with a Specialty in Orthopedic Surgery:
By 3/2015, the good doctor’s office said, ‘Obviously, it has to be very clear to you that they are not going provide you with any medical care whatsoever. You have seen how they have refused to authorize any specialists, specialty care or evaluations. We had to change the right shoulder injury, well documented in 2012 and MRI confirmed in 2013, to non-industrial or they have threatened to remove our offices from their referral lists. It’s not personal, it’s just business, and we have to release you now…. go find a brain doctor, we can’t help you. That’s work comp.’
2012 – chiropractic, some clinical psychology sessions
2013 – physical therapy, acupuncture
2014 – neuro-psychology support, and 24 x speech therapy, occupational therapy, more physical therapy, more chiropractic
2015 – still waiting

CORVEL TEAM SINCE 2013, 3D Practices — They even harm Cops, right Mayor Betsy? Did the Unions get to the bottom of the bad behavior by Corvel out in Ft. Worth yet? You should see how Injured Cops and Firefighters are treated in California. Shameful, indeed! Reams of Denials via CorVel for ADJ8181903! (Chronoloical Order, 2013 to present….notice a pattern of expertise of denying parties?) CorVel reports tend to be convoluted regurgitations of disorganized and incomplete medical records, violations of HIPPA rights, and inappropriate reviewers for types of injuries. Readers may opine that the submitting RNs wrote the reports, poorly and incoherently, for the most part. (Regurgitated and Obfuscated Reports are an apparent pattern and practice of CorVel teams)
