The Injured Worker was initially poorly represented, then self-represented.  There’s little love or respect between CAAA and the injured worker(s).

“Comp Laude and Best Blogs: There Has Never Been a Better Time to Celebrate the Best in Workers’ Comp”




 

ROAR

Rebranding, since the blog seems to have been instrumental in facilitating ‘the parties reaching resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement,’ and the process includes a new blog called MyWorkCompCoach.com.

This new blog will include some untold Injured Worker stories, including Veterans kicked to the curb not only by the VA, but by subsequent work injuries.  We have already received a few, and most want to share ‘Anonymously’ for fear of retribution from employers, insurers or bogey-peeps.

When you think about WorkComp and the plight of Injured Workers, be sure to know about Botched Surgeries and Failures to Provide Corrective Surgeries that contribute to the “disability making machinery” and opiate traffic. The stories are heinous.  If you have a job, hope you NEVER GET HURT on the job!  If the injury doesn’t kill you, WorkComp ‘care’ may finish the job!

Do you have a WorkComp Story to tell?  Tell it here! “What’s YOUR WorkComp Story?”  Anonymous PRECEDES Unanimous!  Remember that!

“Do you see what we we see?”

flag distress signal

O SAY CAN YOU SEE, AMERICA!

An e-Course is in the works, WorkComp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills — watch for details!

We collectively hope to incite real discussion in the alleged ‘national discussions’ (albeit secret discussions) in the works now.  We trust that the efforts of carriers like “Sedgwick Institute” will embrace Injured Workers, listen to the horror stories, so that we can all, collectively, work toward life extending resolutions that include ‘immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care’ and return to work efforts, when possible.

“… Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc. said it has established the Sedgwick Institute, which it describes as “an interdisciplinary community of thought leaders dedicated to elevating the dialogue around issues affecting the risk and benefits industry.”

white roses

Let’s dismantle the “disability making machine’ and create a legitimate Workers Rights movement to combat what WorkComp has become.  As the Department of Labor Secretary Perez indicates, their hands are somewhat tied.




 

“Labor Secretary Calls Workers’ Comp Opt-Out Plans A ‘Pathway To Poverty'”




 

The Congressional letter of October 2015 indicated some willingness on the part of a few members of Congress (and even a few more representing nuclear workers!) to provide law enforcement assistance, if necessary. It appears to be necessary, in most states.  So, ‘SEND IN THE NATIONAL GUARD, AND ENSURE THEY ATTEND THE ‘SECRET’ NATIONAL DISCUSSIONS in the works for May, somewhere in the ‘heartland.’

The matters of unbridled profits for the insurance industries on the backs of injured workers, along with costs shifting to same injured workers, to State and Federal coffers, is also discussed.  It’s hoped that the ‘national discussions’ include the most destructive and dangerous practices first, vs. hand wringing and “CYA” practices to protect PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.

SKY EARTH FIRE

Back in 2012, one doctor suggested that I write about my work comp experiences after a witnessed slip and fall backwards, big, hard, conk on the head, little-to-no medical care over the course, in order to help me process what was happening to me with the lack of medical care, legal chicanery, and fight for my life.

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

.

It took until the summer of 2013 to make it a blog…..the earlier writings were to WorkComp people — doctors, adjusters, lawyers, human resources. Initially, I suspected the poor treatment was simply that some of the people I was dealing with were simply stupid.   I discovered it is far worse than that.

"WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW" #OccupyVirtually
“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW” #OccupyVirtually  – #DodgeTheRads  

Have you seen the movie, WOMAN IN GOLD?  Here’s the trailer.  I watched it this week.  I cringed and gasped repeatedly as I saw parallels between those atrocities, and the life destroying actions of the WorkCompsters around the nations.  It is time for more Doctor’s Trials, to include the complicit sonderkommando, wouldn’t you agree?

 

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

 

Watch it and see for yourself how the parallels can be drawn with the devastation and destruction by the Nazi’s in the 30’s and similar destruction of life in the 21st century—of disabled workers, older workers and other ‘economically undesirable’ or ‘unprofitable’ members of the working classes.  If you do watch it, pay particular attention to the cheering when the Nazi’s rolled in to Austria, and the terrors that followed and wonder about shareholders of the companies causing such atrocities. Today, they don’t roll in in tanks, it’s the sedans and stretch limos?  Yikes!

 

If you don’t know any Injured Workers and if you are like the ‘cheering crowds’ of the profitable workcomp industries, also take a look at “The First Leaflet” and the next time medical care is denied on your watch, ask about your own humanity and soul.

.

Injured Workers lose their sanity, their jobs, their homes and their lives in the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business model that provides windfalls of profits, faster upon death of injured workers, to insurance industries and ancillary venues.

Are you #LinkedIn?

It’s thrilling to see that the nation is finally discussing, out loud and virtually, some of the horrific atrocities of WorkComp. No more sugar-coating the atrocities. Enough of you know the real deal.

.

MAY AMERICA LEAD THE WAY TO STOP THESE ATROCITIES…..

We, The People,  Are The Media Now.  “Let’s get right to it!”

.

Wouldn’t it be beneficial and life-extending if…..some of the biggies….. WorkCompCentral + ProPublica + National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers accelerate the discussion WITH AN EMPHASIS CHANGE TOWARD SOLUTIONS?  Enough already with the hand-wringing and rhetoric.

 

If you’re in the industry, Y’all already know what’s happening. DO SOMETHING TODAY.  MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT.  “ADOPT AN INJURED WORKER” AND HELP THEM ESCAPE FROM THE “assembly lines of death” and OPEN AIR DEATH CHAMBERS!

If not you, then who?  If not now, then when?

Go save yourself from the zombies

.

Let’s individually and collectively conduct interviews with doctors, lawyers and others who have “left the industry” so that real issues can be addressed, in a less threatening manner, with, perhaps, some amnesty provisions for early responders.

.

These WorkComp challenges and atrocities are Universal —- perhaps the USA, Canada, UK and Australia have similar organizations — like WorkCompCentral + ProPublica + National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers and everybody can join forces to save/extend lives.

.

We’ll probably need some educational events to address BEST PRACTICES for Whistle Blowing, in all quarters, wouldn’t you agree?

It has been somewhat comforting over the past year to see discussions about the many horrors of WorkComp, along with the high profits for the insurance carriers. Romano Trust Vs. Sedgwick seems to have paved the way for carriers to “wish and hope you die” if you are an injured worker —-it’s an cost effective strategy, in perfect alignment with PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models, also used by the Nuclear Industries?

.

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

.

Well, recently a recommendation from another doctor/coach suggested I write about my WorkComp experiences.  I shyly reported, “Well, I have a little blog already, but I do want to write a book.”   Unimpressed (and previously unaware of my blogs) it was suggested that before our next meeting that I “write an Introduction and a Chapter Outline.”  😀   THIS IS THE INTRODUCTION!   HERE COMES THE OUTLINE!

Did I leave anything out?  Do you think a series of e-books would fly?  Would you read it if it was free?  Would you prefer to pay 99 cents for each e-booklet?  Would you watch a webinar about Whistle Blowing, Blogging, Administrative Tasks for Injured Workers and more?  Would you join groups on the NADIW.org site, LinkedIn, Facebook and elsewhere to further discussion and enhance your own blogs?

Well, the Robert Weinmann, M.D. report caught my attention a bit ago, and as I read, I became even more horrified for Workers in California – injured and able bodied. Here, do your own research; draw your own conclusions. Keep it simple. FOLLOW THE MONEY! Read on: https://lnkd.in/bJQAXkk

  • Linda Ayres
  • Robert Weinmann, M.D.…wondering if you, Dr. Weinmann, would be willing to reach out to Attorney Chris Asvar for an opinion to include your blog? Chris is probably the most knowledgeable California attorney regarding brain injury, Worker’s Compensation, and the criminal corruption involved in harming injured workers that is par for the course in California, and across the nation. I stayed up last night well past my bedtime sharing your blog across social media. Now is the time for all people of goodwill to come to the aid of broken humanity. The people of America must realize that everything Hitler did was “legal” –until Nürnberg. It is time for trials again, this time, to include all complicit parties. If not now, then when? Worker’s Compensation is a mega billion-dollar industry. It is not broken. Ms. Baker may simply be just following orders. David DePaolo, Michael Grabell, Howard Berkes and others willl surely shine more light on this devastating and move taking place now. I will also blog and post further, but the industry likes to discount and minimize truths told by victims/survivors of work comp atrocities.I also commented on a post by Jerry Brown about @JeanFuller, so they know about this now too.THANK YOU!!!!!!🌸
