TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Please stop by the Facebook Fest – #OccupyWorkComp – AIN’T IT AWFUL FEST
For those interested in whining and complaining and singing the AIN’T IT AWFUL song about WorkComp — BYOB – BRING YOUR OWN BLOG and dump all the crappy news here at this event.
Let’s clean up the OCCUPY WORK COMP group and realign focus on solutions. The ain’t it awful crowd can post over here… and on July 4, we’ll take a look and identify the most whined about problems and then see if we can come up with the solutions.
Injured Worker Threatens Freed Injured Worker with Legal Action for Inviting Other Injured Workers to tell their story? Whaaaaat?!! Makes Sense?
AGITATOR: Why are you so sold on mediation or any kind of settlement/ ARE you working for them or earning a finder’s fee somehow? This is not what WC IS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR. MEDIATION, SETTLEMENTS OR ARBITRATION’S. YOU ARE HELPING THE INSURERS NOW!
Linda Ayres When someone has been ‘fighting work comp’ for ‘over 30 years’ unsuccessfully, and someone with a brain injury and no attorney gets out of the system with her life and her freedom in less than 5 years, which path makes more sense? LIFE IS ABOUT CHOICES. GUARD YOUR LIFE FROM THOSE WHO WOULD SEE YOU JOIN THEM IN THE PATH TO NOW WHEREWithout a blog and a growing database, injured workers are unarmed, unprotected and doomed. How sad.
AGITATOR: This mediation arbitration and structured settlement sound like a shill for those who work for the insurance industry with more parasites taking injured workers benefits at a price. Oh the hell with our rights, RIGHT? Injured workers are just in it for a little money RIGHT? WOW! Who needs to fight for injured workers when all one has to do is just take a few K & GO AWAY like the insurers want you to do?!?
All others, feel free to share your story at WHAT’S YOUR WORK COMP STORY, or better yet, start your own blog and start answering the questions there.
If you have a WorkComp case, call a local Structured Settlement office today to discuss IF your case might qualify for a “structured settlement”
Search google for WORK COMP STRUCTURED SETTLEMENTS
Ask, “Can you help me settle my work comp case? I was injured on (date) and my (body parts) injured are future medical is anticipated as (name what medical you know you need). I am (age) and (ethnicity, if you choose to disclose). I am am not represented by an attorney”
Or something like that. No horror stories–everyone already knows exactly what you have been thru.
Prudential is another structured settlement group. There are more. We will get a list.
Make a few calls and find out your rights and options. If they say can’t help you, call another.
Get your story line down to 1 minute then let them ask questions. Keep good call notes.
Then call your adjuster, or beg your attorney to if you are “represented” and simply ask one question:
“What will it take to settle this case?”
If there is no answer ask a second question, “Will you consider mediation?”
If they laugh at you, you know how much blogging is ahead for you to do.
If they say “not at this time’ you know you have to crank up your blog and your database.
If they say “yes” then call the structured settlement peeps (or your attorney) back and say “They said yes. Can you recommend 3-5 good smart ethical mediators”
KEEP GOOD NOTES.
Ps DON’T WORRY ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS….most real doctors call work company medical reports “copy and pasted garbage reports”. Do assemble your thoughts and evidence of fraud and other misdeeds. Be able to articulate your anticipated future medical needs.
DO NOT SING “AIN’T IT AWFUL” at mediation.
The goal is Resolution not blame throwing. If you blogger sufficiently prior to mediation resolution could become a reality.
