Ladies and Gentlemen and Others of the WorkCompster Industries:
“Perseveration” is apparently a consequence of Concussion/Traumatic Brain Injury. This post got longer than anticipated, but if you’re in the industry, or know someone who is, or if you are an InjuredWorker, take 5 minutes and peruse it, then share it with someone, even with a subject line of “SMFH – WorkCompsters Exposed”
It may come in handy down the road. Thanks.

Years ago, I volunteered in a goodwill effort with and for Convicts in America’s Maximum Security Penitentiaries. It was called “PRISONERS UNANIMOUS — EMBRACING ALL PLANETARY PRISONERS” Maybe you heard of it?
Check FOIA, they probably have several CDs including my visits to penitentiaries across America, and my communications with a handful of government officials, goodwill organizers, friends and families of prisoners, and approximately 1,000 Convicts across America.
I think I was the second woman “in history” to “walk the ranges” at USP Marion Federal Penitentiary, back in the days when it was deemed ‘the worst of the worst” prisons, surpassed today by, so I hear, the likes of Pelican Bay. It was after allegations of a “full scale Nazi-type of retaliation attack” on the entire Convict population. I was corresponding with several of the Convicts listed in that dreadful “Public Report.” I sent copies everywhere, including Amnesty International in Vienna, where they allegedly WATCH for human violations in the Americas. Hmph.
The Guys and I established an “8 o’clock, local time” prayer network when they educated me about how deplorable America’s “Corrections” system is. Now, privatized prisons are a bigger part of the “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES” industries. Some of us still link up, no doubt.
The guys told me how bad things were, and said I was very brave. They said the prison systems in America are very dangerous, and that I had better think long and hard about touching it.
They told me, “Lady, you better know what you’re willing to die for, because you might well be asked to do so if you get involved in attempting to facilitate change.”
They further advised, “Lady, we Convicts are not the problems in your country. We are the end result of the problems in your country. If you want change, you have to go Washington. That’s where the problems are.” (There is something far more polite and respectful from a Convict calling a correspondent “Lady” than the pretentious “Ms. Ayres” used by defense and psychopaths, wouldn’t you agree?)
Those words reverberate in my head as if they were yesterday. I have never forgotten those haunting words. As a Survivor of WorkersCompensation today, I know ever more how true they are.
IT’S A GRAVY TRAIN!
#WorkCompsters have made that choice easier today. They have already taken my life.
Too often, Injured Workers make poor choices in efforts to retain competent legal counsel, much to the detriment of the Injured Worker.
This is often not discovered by injured workers until the 2nd, 3rd or 4th attempt to retain competent counsel.
Including THIS warning in every employee new hire packet, and every Human Resources orientation in California could save lives.
Till then, tell your friends and neighbors, and tell them to tell theirs. WorkComp Kills, without consequences to anybody but the Injured Workers and their loved ones.
Many Injured Workers have even sought the help of ACLU and NLG, to no avail.
We are, however, grateful for the organization, NAIDW.org, National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers, for the encouragement, resources and support they provide, and having been providing for many years. “No Injured Worker Left Behind” Semper Fi, Y’all!
We like a few of the industry bloggers who do their best to do their best for the highest good of all concerned. Cognitive Dissonance seems to be kicking some butt in that arena, wouldn’t you agree?
Bravo to ProPublica for being a catalyst for discussion and possible change. Bravo to WorkCompCentral for relentless efforts at education and inciting legitimate discussions about the need for national discussion and change.
Let’s get beyond “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES”…. let’s incarcerate a few psychopaths for maiming and killing injured workers, too, shall we?
It matters not if the killers are making $250K a year, or $10.7 million or more a year. With proper trials first, of course. FBI and DA and DOJ need to better orchestrate their efforts, ya think?
Crime is Crime, and CRIME SHOULD NOT PAY IN AMERICA.
For personal assistance in my own, but common, horrific case on non-stop abuse of a permanently disabled-by-untreated-brain-injury-and-various-acts-of-legal-chicanery-and-file-churning, older female worker, a local crisis center sent a Marine to help me last year. The Marine Social Worker, kind, fierce and very helpful.
MMI neuro-psychologist report recently received (and posted!) says my future medical needs include similar support, with probability of needs for assisted living and ‘memory care’ for my shortened life span, shortened due to WorkCompsters and corruption, involving many unclean hands. Hmph, Some “Grand Bargain, California!”
Legitimate doctors in 2012 made legitimate and conservative recommendations for medical care, denied. Had treatment not been denied by the defense counsel (not doctors, just defense lawyer and adjuster for 2012, till 2013 came along for the extreme profits of CorVel to obfuscate facts with intent to deny medical care.) return to work might have happened in 2012.
After threats from defense counsel, then PTP released me to work with accommodations, which were denied in October 2012. Things got worse from there, without medical care. I have been fighting to return to work for years, to no avail.
I have endured being penny-less, relying on The Salvation Army for utilities, filing for social welfare due to carrier arrogant practice of denials of payment of TTD, “because they could” (and they were rewarded handsomely by EDD for refusing to pay in 2012/2013 and for refusing to provided medical care. Now, SSA is involved in the charades and chicanery, and trying to sort it all out.
Is it a felony for carriers to provide SSA and EDD with false evidence of benefits paid with intent to deny SSA benefits? Seems to be part of a set of RICO violations, wouldn’t you think?
Yet evaluations upon evaluations upon evaluations have been performed by approximately 38 doctors (ca-ching, no care, just primarily report regurgitations written by non-medical staff, signed by doctors, paid the big bucks).
TeamCorvel includes approximately 20 more, and ol’ Maximus comes in with just one. (There’s a full blog, with names; see the index athttps://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts)
While we are at it, omission of medical records and obfuscation of facts seems facilitated by the silly “chronological” ordering of medical evidence, rather than by specialty, then by chronological order. Carrier in my case gets charged by most doctors 4-8 hours for “organizing the records”…. and maybe it’s not all the signing leased doctor’s fault their non-medical staff do things like change the date of injury to a year forward, then use first year medical evidence to falsely opine “pre-existing” symptoms. D’oh. Number of hours spent during an evaluation are often “inflated” and far worse, totally fabricated!
The majority of Lawyers don’t seem to care. They shrug say ‘their hands are tied” (and “their lips are sealed?!!!”) Others have told me “Too much fraud in your case, it’s over my head” and “Too many people didn’t do their jobs, there’s no money in it for me”….
One interviewed actually had the audacity to ask, after pages of questions had been answered, “One more question, tell me, why did you wait over 2.5 years for medical care for a brain injury?” D’OH! That didn’t even merit a final response, and that attorney came HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Here’s my story, again. Date of witnessed slip and fall backwards on ice, resulting in Concussion/Traumatic Brain injury 1/9/12 while working for Wyndham Worldwide.
The blogs. ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS, began in the Summer of 2013, and continue as the only means available to fight for my life against the widely known corruption of the national WORKERS COMPENSATION SYSTEMS.
This quote is meaningless in California’s WorkComp corruption rackets, is it not?
“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
And there is no means of enforcement for the Fraud Warnings, now is there? http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/FraudWarningNotices/FraudWarningNotices2013.pdf
What kind of system do YOU profit by that requires someone with a brain injury to represent herself because your colleagues (4 of them) could be found guilty of ABA Ethics Violations and Incompetent Representation?
Due to your accepted CA legislated fraud regulations, and your “2 attorney” superstitions, Injured Workers bear the brunt of the lack of expertise of your crowd/CAAA memberhips. This also allows Defense Firms to claim the title ENEMIES OF INJURED AMERICAN WORKERS.
How many injured workers retain and dismiss multiple attorneys, as the corruption is tolerated by those retained to protect injured workers? How many injured workers in California, and in America, must represent themselves due to the failure of the ABA crowds? Some have said that more than 15% of Injured Workers are InProPer…. probably as a last resort, not a first.
Why do your various profit centers/industries refuse to work with InProPer Injured Workers, and why do your industry leased/owned doctors seem so puzzled, baffled and perplexed by the legality of an Injured Worker self-representing? Why do the medical office staffs believe they can ONLY TAKE ORDERS from the Adjuster or Defense Firm?
IS THIS SIMPLY ANOTHER CASE OF “FOLLOW THE MONEY?”
When incompetent and worse attorneys can be allowed to be rewarded for causing harm to an injured worker, how can that be good for anybody?
If WorkComp Mill attorneys have a “case load of 300 clients”…with wishing and hoping that somebody drops dead for some ultimate pay-off for the attorney, how does that help an injured worker get medical care, benefits, return to work and settlement?
Why do employers condone such malicious unconscionable behavior of denials of medical care, benefits, and bullying and all sort of acts of terrorism, experiments, surgeries, poisoning and worse by insurance companies? What good can a WorkComp attorney do?
I even asked a WCAB Judge for permission, as stated is possible on the WCAB recommended reading, to retain an attorney to consult with, on an hourly basis.
Alas, not only did the Judge tell me he would not hear the F-words in his court room, (Felony Fraud with intent to deny medically necessary treatment), he sentenced me to fighting for my life with every ounce of courage and strength and stamina I can muster, fighting organized crimes that EVERY ONE OF YOU ARE FULLY AND COMPLICITY AWARE OF.
But wait, the Team of Four don’t have all the blame. Defense counsel says it’s all my fault. Hmph. He even suggested I consider a Court Appointed Conservator since I am having such difficulty maneuvering the WorkComp system, with denials of medical care, fraudulent reports, unresponsive law enforcement and more. The Carrier’s Fraud Department called, as most of you know, last Fall and made it very clear he did not care one iota that I had not received medically necessary and recommended care, and the conversation concluded when he said, “So, tell me Linda, when ARE you going to die?”
Some things I read on LinkedIn indicated the Employers are responsible for the bullying and terrorism of their vendors. Wyndham Worldwide was immediately apprised of the horrific bad faith and breach of fiduciary responsibility, and outright disgustingly mean thing to say. ( Intent of the caller? A “medicated worker” might have been compelled to irreversible action by such ‘poor customer service’, wouldn’t you agree? )
How many members of your CAAA organizations have been approached, recommended, took time to evaluate the merit and financial possibilities of helping THIS injured worker? You know my name now. I have spoken with many of you. Your declines to help have most always been cordial, except when they weren’t. Just so y’all know, A BRAIN INJURY IS NOT THE SAME AS A BROKEN FINGER, NOR IS THE TREATMENT THE SAME.
Watch the upcoming movie “Concussion” and then ask yourself and your partners how legitimate could it be for an insurance carrier to refuse to pay TTD, provide medical care, and embark on a mission of terrorism and destruction to an injured worker, coincidentally, UPON DIAGNOSIS OF BRAIN INJURY.
The Defense Firm treats me like they pretend to have I & A Officers and Judges in their pockets, as my ADA rights are consistently violated at WCAB-Riverside, and my Civil Rights.
Think about how many of YOUR clients have been sent to merely Orthopedic Surgeons or Chiropractors for TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY? See the current list of names all the 40 doctors I had been sent to, and all the CorVel and Maximus “physician advisors” and team members. In the olden days, they might have all been called, “Sonderkommando”…. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few good doctors in that list of 40, and they will be nominated in the upcoming CompLaude Awards. The others will be nominated to the naughty list for possible inclusion in the ProPublica national efforts.
MY EMPLOYER DOES NOT CARE. DOES YOURS? DO YOU?
I have many of your polite Non-Engagement Letters and I am weary of bothering with your ilk. You are as much a part of the WorkComp problems as are the criminal doctors and lawyers. Perhaps Sophie Scholl is kinder in her description of your ilk:
So, if you are willing to discuss courageous representation of THIS INJURED WORKER, Case ADJ818190, Linda Ayres Vs. Wyndham Worldwide et al, please let me know at your earliest convenience.
I can be reached at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com or phone 760 368 7236. If I don’t answer, please leave a message. “I AM INJURED, NOT STUPID!” I do have auditory and visual processing impairments (untreated, of course). I prefer electronic mail as an ADA accommodation (that defense continuously disregards, while apparently perjuring with proofs of service to cause significant delays and further harm).
The forensic psych AME suggested that if I have Human Rights Violations Complaints that I “take it to The Hague”….. Well, maybe that was only reasonable thing he had to say.
That’s a “Fukushima Rose”…. (3.11.11)
