Because I was not a ‘Boomer.’

Then they came for the Insurance Brokers, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not an Insurance Broker.

Then they came for the Attorneys for the Injured Workers, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not an Attorney.

Then they came for the Judges, and I did not speak out–

Because I was not a Judge.

Then they came for the Politicians, and I did not speak out–

Then they came for the Bloggers, and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Blogger.

Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.

Workers Compensation Crisis of Hyper-Corruption! Just like NFL Playbook? Concussion!

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

Everyone knows that bad sh*t happens in work comp and that there are profiteers off of the injured. That’s no secret.  David DePaolo CEO WorkCompCentral

WorkComp Congressional Letter and YOU

–  Can We Talk?

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.

WHAT YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES HAD HAD TO SAY LAST YEAR: https://www.propublica.org/series/workers-compensationhttps://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/2465674/letter-from-federal-lawmakers-to-labor-on.pdf

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.

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.

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?)

WORKERSCOMP BLOG RECOGNITION EVENT March 2016
http://workerscompensation.com/workers_comp_best_blogs.php

A few injured workers have blogs, some have video channels, others have books and others are simply dying quietly waiting for medical care, disability benefits, and medications for pain and suffering caused by botched medical procedures.

Many Injured Workers have expressed devastating and incapacitating fear of retaliation for telling their stories.  Therefore, we are rethinking compilation strategies and may tell the collected stories anonymously, first, leaving doors open for further input, to protect the victims of Amercia’s Workers Compensation systems.

Third party stories told by WorkComp industry workers, also afforded anonymity, would be welcome, providing another degree of protection for victimized injured workers.  CAN YOU HELP?  WILL YOU HELP?  IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO? IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?

If our friends abroad want their stories told in America, we welcome you.  Your Struggle is Our Struggle and as we #OccupyWorkComp, Virtually, WE SHALL OVERCOME!

dont panic organize fishes

It looks like the “Industry Experts” are busy busy busy with more conventions and more studies to the ‘puzzling, baffling, mysterious and perplexing’ concerns about why Injured Workers in the United States of America are being denied medical care and benefits, why they are becoming permanently disabled in increasing numbers, why costs continue to shift away from Insurance Carriers.  The only lessons they are probably studying is damage control from the 2015 series, FROM INSULT TO INJURY about The Demolition of Workers Compensation!  Google it and review the letter from Congress the investigative reported apparently incited!  Go ProPublica and NPR!

While ‘medical costs’ allegedly continue to increase, these “costs” are not typically for medical treatment, but merely for medical evaluations with intent to continue to deny medical care ‘by any means necessary.’  Many injured workers see it as a simply complex ‘money laundering scheme’ that should be of interest to the Department of Justice peeps.  Many injured workers scream RICO RICO RICO…  

“GET OUT OF THE SYSTEM BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!”

These problems are not unique to Americans.  The Canadians are experiencing the same issues, with some of the same carriers and like-minded legislators and vendors.  The Australians have the same issues.

A recent industry article mentioned the ‘value’ of surveillance of Injured Workers. Oh my, tell that to Mayor Betsy’s Police Force in Fort Worth….remember the lady cop who was none too happy about being under surveillance for filing a work comp claim?  Has anyone seen an update on the seriously injured cop in ICU that had a nasty visit from ‘Nurse Ratchet’ of ‘Corvel’ that made national headlines?

Does California needs to implement video recordings immediately for all medical/legal events?  Does every state need to immediately implement video recordings, or just send in the National Guard to protect Injured Workers?

On the issues of surveillance, video recordings of medical evaluations can save lives and careers.  Remember the win for the First Amendment in the Dr. Rosalind Griffin perjury allegations?  A brave and courageous personal injury attorney went to bat for the Constitution and for his client with a brain injury in Michigan!  Steven Gursten, an American Hero!

Google it too!  Here’s one criminal defense blog on the typical IME sequence of events (and yes, video recordings apparently protected the innocent!)

ABA conclusion:

http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/the_first_amendment_wins_in_dropped_ethics_probe_over_lawyers_hatchet_job_t/

Sadly, in California, most attorneys seem to roll over and quietly serve their clients to the insurance industries on a tarnished platter for a few ‘pieces of silver!’ Perjured reports are greeted with a shrug and ‘that’s just how work comp is’….. if questioned, they shrug again and say, ‘The System is broken!” HOGWASH!

Best regards!
WorkComp Linda and Friends




 

TO ALL OTHERS!

Anybody can be injured at work. Even you! Anybody can get a brain injury, EVEN YOU!

Have you been following the Steven Gursten Esq. situation about IMR’s in a Brain Injury Case?

While it’s not WorkComp, this PI attorney could certainly teach @CAAA and other State’s legal and insurance crowds a thing or two about how to protect an Injured Worker and how to protect the Constitution of the United States of America! It’s a heart warming story!

IMR/QME/AME perjury and other fraud issues are a huge dilemma in California, and seems to be a ‘protected’ action…. Ask any Injured Worker for details!  Will the well-connected doctor in the blog face legal consequences? How is patient?  Will he get medical care now?

Without swaths of similar reports, the rest of the WorkComp process might actually begin to include actual reasonable and appropriate medical care, and legit providers might even have better luck at getting paid to provide care, injured workers might get improvements, might be able to return to work, and save taxpayers “swaths” of monies being shifted from carriers to governmental agencies, etc.

I think I blogged about it… Yes, I did too…. #Blog4TheCures!

Sticks and stones and…attorney disbarment? Did Dr. Rosalind Griffin commit perjury?

Who else is blogging about work comp


 

Thank you.  For minor injuries, CA Dept of Rehab could and probably does help a few injured workers.

So many California injured workers are denied medical care so long that injuries are exacerbated, causing permanent disabilities and work becomes an impossibility. The Salvation Army is also kind when benefits are illegally interrupted and Injured Workers are left destitute. They can provide temporary assistance with utilities and directions to food banks. Legal Aid can also help unrepresented injured workers to a small degree, with State issues.

CA Dept of Rehab will not help those impacted by #Romano-Syndrome.  Nothing seems to be able to help those impacted by #RomanoSyndrome.




Did you also read about the LA Chemical and Nuclear event in progress in YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK included in the blog? Do you also wonder how many people really grasp THOSE HEALTH DANGERS!

 radiation and human health
Talk about an IRRADIATED STATE! CA has VERY serious nuclear problems, with it’s nuclear workers and the dangerous to the unsuspecting public. Have you seen this McClathcyDC report?
NUCLEAR WORKERS TOLD TO KEEP MUM
The people in those videos won’t be returning to work!
Many WorkComp survivors can’t get out of bed, and few leave their homes, unless lost by foreclosure! Apparently Congress is looking into matters further. It’s about time, huh? The Congressional head count is nearing 20 now! Hooray!
EINSTEIN IF I WERE TO REMAIN SILENT
 

Back to the Dept of Rehab thoughts:

IF Charles Romano had had, perhaps, stronger legal representation, he might still be alive and returned to his job at Ralph’s.
I know more cases on the verge of similar consequences, NATIONALLY.
We must #Blog4TheCure, imho.
NAIDW 54 million plus

It is understood that a legal association attempted to hold the adjuster and the insurance carrier in the Romano case accountable for the death of Charles Romano, unsuccessfully.


One attorney, who asked not to be named, told me that the post-death failed legal effort gave the ‘green light’ to the industry to deny medical care to all injured workers. Quite the win for the industry because the risk of a $100,000 fine for a death consequence is more cost effective, in many cases, than providing care and treatment. Quite the loss for the working class and for humanity itself.


Such atrocities are history repeating itself. Boxcars full of people were exterminated in WW2 and few raised their voices or hands to help. Church folks were said to sing louder as the boxcars of wailing prisoners rolled by enroute to the death kamps. Injured Workers often feel like such POW’s, with no place to turn for help.


So, if one Super Lawyer said that about the Romano case, how many others know or believe it to be true? More importantly, how many insurance industry carrier believe it, and profit grandly by it? The results in CA speak for themselves, although DIR paints a much prettier picture of it’s veneer of successes.


 

We anticipate full on Congressional Investigations into California’s WorkComp systems—top to bottom—- and some are fond of saying, in response to their October 2015 note to the Department Labor asking if more enforcement help is required, ‘YEAH! SEND IN THE NATIONAL GUARD TO PROTECT CALIFORNIA WORKERS! Casualties are rising!”



 

We need Injured Disabled Workers Associations, not unlike labor unions, but of The People, By The People, and For The People, in every state but with a focus to help Injured Workers maneuver and survive workers compensation as practiced today.


Many injured workers retain and dismiss 4 or 5 or even more attorneys, and end up self-representing in order to reach resolutions in order to ESCAPE WORKERS COMPENSATION. Many doctors and lawyers who left the work field will quietly tell any injured worker friend, ‘GET OUT OF THE SYSTEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!”.  


 

How many cases roll on for years and years…. Even the attorney crowd must grow weary of the small ‘commissions’ made on their old cases, where nobody but the insurance company is left whole.



Many injured workers are directed to “Social Services” welfare, because insurance carriers refuse to pay TTD benefits and SSA can take years.


Most injured workers, so it seems, would return to work within weeks or months IF THERE WAS some process to get immediate reasonable and necessary medical care. Till we have a system like that, the WarOnWorkers will continue to cost lives of Americans across the nation, while the industry reaps grand profits.


Organizing injured workers into teams of bloggers, maximizing the use of the internet to let the truth be told, seems to be an important action item.


Forging links of communications and goodwill between WorkComp Industry players and Injured Workers, could serve to bridge some communication gaps, and Social Media Groups can fill that need…. sort of like Pen-Pals that keep Convicts connected to the world, e-pals could facilitate constructive change through sharing of information with influencers.


#InjuredWorkers must unite.

#InjuredWorkers must not remain silent.

What’s Up LA? Baffled Attorneys fiddle while Injured Workers seek cure for Romano-Syndrome Sweeping the Nation’s Working Classes?

Baffled Attorneys fiddle while Injured Workers seek cure for #Romano-Syndrome sweeping the nation’s Working Classes?

Romano-Syndrome?  Here, read this.  Workers Comp & Bad Faith: Unacceptable Oversights The Insurer’s Duty and The Romano Case. 

Sidebar:  “May I approach the bench?”  Do all those California “Valley” attorneys know about the health consequences of the Los Angeles Chemical and Nuclear Disaster? Details in Your Radiation This Week No 39.  Google and Share it with your smart friends and lawyers.


 

Can Congressional WorkComp Investigations lead to appropriate trials and Rx?
Can 54+ million Injured Disabled Workers “Blog for the Cure”successfully ?

NAIDW 54 million plus

Failures of attorney associations across America to protect Injured Workers for 50+ years leaves Congress, Department of Labor, Social Security Administration, the Unsuspecting Public and Injured Workers ‘puzzled, baffled, bewildered, confused, and perplexed!’


Are more “studies” the answer? What ACTIONS are required? Nuclear workers appear to experience brutal strains of Romano-Syndrome? Increasing numbers of Congressional representatives ‘circling the wagons?’  Will Los Angeles evacuate or just continue to extend and pretend there is no immediate danger?


Current treatments and work comp plans save dollars not lives! Furthermore , 20-30+ years of incapacitation seems to violate Geneva Convention guidelines for treatment of POW’s?!?  What about Injured and Disabled Veterans?


It is Time for Domestic Torture Reports on Prisoners of the Corporate Wars on the Working Class!


One WorkCompster evaluating doctor suggests that Injured Workers take any Human Rights complaints directly to The Hague?!? Is that the best and only Remedy?  Is he really saying WorkComp is an EPIC FAIL and a successful depopulation event?  Well educated and highly credentialed doctor, so who’s to argue with such opinions and advice?

Who else is blogging about work comp

Congress faces rising pressure to help rejected nuclear workers

“Tens of thousands of sick employees have been denied help  “….

“The U.S. government has compensated over 52,000 nuclear workers illnesses related to radiation exposure, but the process is complicated. Deaths resulting from exposure while working at the plants and the compensation process for survivors begs the question: How much is a life worth?”

Here is a study by Everette Lee Herndon, Jr.  on Workers Comp & Bad Faith: Unacceptable Oversights The Insurer’s Duty and The Romano Case. Published on http://www.propertycasualty360.com on July 15, 2013  that will prove insightful to any readers, industry or non-industry.  If you’re human, read it; you’ll get it.

A recent DePaolo World blog shared another story with the same trend…..Profit Before People rather than the carrier paying for transitional living facilities at approximately $40K a month, likely with the help of some nasty pharmaceutical, that injured worker’s ‘suicidal ideations’ and attempts could save that carrier a bundle…..  and have “Happy Shareholders”??  Yikes!  See also Guilty Without Charge
