Open Letter to Injured Workers ….WHO WILL PROTECT AMERICA’S WORKING CLASSES?

“I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORK COMP SURVIVOR”

#WOW  The War On Workers Seems to Be Escalating!   BE PREPARED!    A ‘Secret’ National WorkComp Tribunal is in the makings??!!     See an abbreviated version of the currently circulating CAAA Poll below…

May?!!  What a dangerous propaganda effort!! Read on!  THINK THINK THINK

why do we have wars

What’s a Psychopath?  Let’s watch this documentary again, Defense Against The Psychopath.  “Understanding them is the first to defending against them.”

There are just a handful of industry bloggers shaping public opinions, and a good 25 or so bloggers considered to be #ITK, in the know.

How many injured workers are blogging now?  How many have written books?   How many have a huge social media presence?   How many attorneys and providers are blogging?

Did you read Steve Gursten’s blog about IME issues? (LINKS BELOW)  Wow! That firestorm should incite 21st Century Doctor’s Trials! Watch the deposition video! You’ll shake and spit, for sure, if you’re human! Follow THAT money trail.

Dr. Rosalind was paid how much for doing what, saving which insurance carriers how many millions to deny medical care?? Yikes! Typical,huh?  Ask any injured worker, any where.

Most attorneys know, but they are not as courageous as Attorney Gursten…. who facilitated a WIN FOR THE 1ST AMENDMENT and for We, The People!!    Go Steve!  TEACH TEACH TEACH!

Below is a response to an email from the group, Crimes Against Injured Workers, et al!

mon war is not healthy

How many know Michael Grabell and Howard Berkes and Michael Stack and David DePaolo and Bob Wilson and Dr Robert Weinmann?  Here is the LexisNexis list “Top Blogs For Workers’ Compensation and Workplace Issues – 2014”… Is 2015 done?  Follow them all! Comment regularly!  Screen shot your comments and share the links on your network, in case they don’t find your comments “PC.”   ;D

The number of injured workers still not blogging is a serious detriment to any forward movement.  It is said that there are 54 million plus Injured and Disabled Workers in America?

RE:  Your Email of 2/12/16: National Conference of Insurance “Legislators”. List of Legislators that were specifically on workers comp

 .
Thanks for your email and thanks for asking.
 .
Yes, You may copy me publicly on your email efforts to increase awareness of the need for immediate intervention and change in the National Workers Compensation.  If I can help, I will help.
 .
Those of us working for transformation and saving lives must absolutely be aware of respective efforts, and help where we can.  We “Work Like Antz!”
Remember that industry trolls would divide us, to maintain the silence and oppression and violations of civil and human rights.  They are everywhere.

The Link to the NCOIL – National Conference of Insurance Legislators … for the states is a interesting site!  It also has links to “related Web Sites” Thank you for sharing it!  Those who have any faith left in the legal systems may be served by writing to each of the named representatives, and to the October 2015 Congressional representatives!
LUCY OCCUPY SAYS EACH ONE WARN ONE THOUSAND
 .
The #WorkCompsters are apparently aiming for a national discussion on work comp matters — closed door and excluding injured workers?
 .
Recent news indicates it will be a secret meeting of a handful of industry influencers, undisclosed location and participants, and may include two ‘injured workers’ and results only will be provided with the public at large.  It seems to be taking place someplace ‘in the Heartland’ (Let’s hope they check Your Radiation This Week for updates on the radiation levels in their city of choice, and that HEPA filters are provided in the meeting room, at the very least! It’s a litigious crowd, they might create a class action for the dangers they are being invited to participate in!)
 .
More on that in coming blogs….those Secret Tribunals have always been questionable throughout history!
political language (2)
Do the 21st Century Sonderkommando ‘come in limousines, not tanks!?’  Will they do a preliminary national poll to include all parties involved and knowlegeable about the horrors of American WorkComp practices, or will they ‘shuck and jive’ amongst themselves, just like they do at those expensive high-end conferences at the best joints in America?  Total cost per attendee is factored in to somebody’s bottom line?   Rooms at what, $300/nite plus per diems?  All they can eat and drink?  With a few panels and chats that could reach more ONLINE?
.
INJURED WORKERS ARE PROHIBITED ALWAYS FROM ALL INDUSTRY EVENTS?   Can’t learn/Can’t teach.  Hmmmmmm.  Talk about segregation and discrimination?   One work comp industry organization actually openly and disdainfully prohibits injured workers of any kind at their events, and allows attendees to bring a guest ONLY if the guest is a SPOUSE?  WOW!  Ain’t that nothing!   Do they do marriage certificate and bed checks, too?
Why is that?   Years ago I worked for an attorney who always said, “PEOPLE WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THE WRONGS THEY HAVE DONE TO YOU!”
DR ROSALIND GRIFFIN JAN 2016

The doctor’s story is common.  The attorney story is HEROIC!   Steve Gursten, Esq.  is an American Hero, and facilitated a win for the First Amendment, and for his truck driving brain injured client. California attorneys could learn a great deal from Steve, and how to truly protect a client, instead of serving them to the insurance industries for a ‘few pieces of silver.’    Maybe Steve should be invited to the Secret Tribunal…. he’s a Michigan PI attorney, obviously not leased/owned by any insurance companies.  The ol’ WorkComp crowd will likely be heavily invested in CYA studies. See more details on IME issues here:

The First Amendment wins in dropped ethics probe over lawyer’s hatchet job tactics blog post! #Blog4TheCure

Will the National Discussion Secret Meeting simply be a polite get-together to suggest that Michael Grabell, Howard Berkes and the teams at NPR and ProPublica were — WRONG?   I’ve read every article in the Demolition of WorkComp series and I have yet to see them seriously straight up address the FRAUD AND CORRUPTION.   Insinuation, yes, but nothing to take to the District Attorneys, yet.  Maybe soon!

Sedgwick pays $1.13 million to settle California comp violations

Will they be discussing the “Lessons Learned By Sedgwick”?   Romano Trust was not enough?   It’s become Romano-Syndrome, hasn’t it?    #Blog4TheCure!  We’ll talk more soon on the Sedgwick Institute and the grants being handed out to long time WorkComp people to keep the merry go round turning?

Maybe a hotline for dying Injured Workers on the rest and wait and wait and opiate program, handled by a third party could be discussed at the Secret Tribunal?

No injured worker under the Sedgwick plan I have been in touch with has any faith whatsoever for any hope for any good faith actions after years and years and years of abuse.  Most have retained more than one attorney, none of whom were able to get reasonable medical care sufficient for return to work, or any other protections.  WHO WILL PROTECT INJURED WORKERS IN AMERICA?!

What do you tell an injured worker who says, “My attorney said he makes so little money on my case, he told me that it doesn’t matter if he returns my calls or not.  When it’s over, he’ll still get the same little bit of money, so he has lots of files and can’t give my case any attention.”  HOW IS THAT ETHICAL OR EVEN HUMANE?  It certainly does not pass any ‘competency’ tests!

mlk hitler germany

When will the attorney groups begin to monitor the horrors they facilitate by such behaviors, and worse?   How about the attorney who says, “Fraud? I haven’t heard that word since law school.  I wouldn’t have a clue how to proceed in exposing that!”   Or the attorney who says, ‘Romano Trust vs. Sedgwick gave the industry the green light to withhold medical care from all injured workers, across America, and risk merely a fine of a maximum of $100,000.  It’s cheaper than medical care in most cases.’

 

How about the Super Lawyers who know about “the issues” that permeate the WorkComp system and shrug and call say “The System Is Broken” ……    Talk about Dodging The Facts!  Sounds complicit to most injured workers!  

How about the attorneys who bank only on ‘high profile cases’?  If that’s the case, it is incumbent on every Injured Worker to CREATE A HIGH PROFILE, BY ANY AND EVERY MEANS NECESSARY.    As Michael Grabell of ProPublica was recently quoted, he said words to the effect that most people don’t give a hoot about WorkComp till they are in the system, and fighting for their life to escape the horrors.  I’ll find the article and post it when I do.

Anybody in the business more than 10 years is surely considered part of the problem? Anybody in the business more than 5 years is surely considered part of the problem.  Heck, ANYBODY IN THE BUSINESS IS SURELY CONSIDERED PART OF THE PROBLEM OF MAIMING AND DISABLING AND YES, KILLING INJURED WORKERS ACROSS AMERICA, FOR PROFITS.   Those who have remained silent, or just left the industry are quite as culpable, wouldn’t you agree?

Will they discuss real issues like fraud, collusion, malpractice?  Will they look at how fake-doctor reports are factored in to the ‘rising medical costs’ in long drawn out WorkComp Cases?  Will they address how paying off an on-the-take doctor to use a bit of slight of hand and deceptions with a touch of plausible deniability to ensure denial of medical care for the $7,000 range, verses necessary immediate medical treatments in the tens of thousands, and life medical in the millions, per case?
FOLLOW THE MONEY. Will they look at the butchery by the “Angels of Death” — Josef Megele-like ‘surgeons’ leased/owned by the WorkComp industries and complications caused by left over foreign objects?

WILL THE NATIONAL SECRET TRIBUNALS DISCUSS THE ISSUES?

Will they discuss the torturous practices of leaving foreign objects behind in a surgery, then cutting off pain meds without corrective surgeries?  Will they look at failures to treat complications after botched surgeries? Will they look at cost-shifting to Welfare and Social Security Disability, and the the trickery of the Long Term Disability Providers and apparent collusion there, also?

LEGISLATORS WHO HONOR THEIR OATH OF OFFICE?
The list of legislators you have shared might be enlisted to join with the others, and issue an updated later with all the signatures of those public representatives charged with overseeing Workers Compensation atrocities and ensuring that corrective adjustments are made immediately, imho.  Sharing this article, US Lawmakers Call for More Oversight of Workers’ Comp COULD serve to incite support, letting them know it’s time to act.  Be sure to include the link to the actual October 20, 2015 letter from Congress to the Department of Labor.  Here’s that link.

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?

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.

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.

lisa and bart the whole damn system is wrong

 

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.

mlk hitler germanyCAN YOU REFER ANYBODY WITH ANY SUCCESS REPRESENTING INJURED WORKERS AGAINST SEDGWICK IN CALIFORNIA?

Charles Romano Trust google search 1 21 2016

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.

If you know of someone, please comment below or send me an email at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com.

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.

ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP CORRUPTION, MISTAKES, SONDERKOMMANDO, GRAVY TRAIN WRECKS AND MORE HERE….

After reviewing the list of doctors/providers, you may be ‘baffled, puzzled, confused and perplexed’ and asked, “WHAT TREATMENTS DID THIS INJURED WORKER RECEIVE, AND HOW MANY THOUSAND AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WERE SPENT ON EVALUATIONS THAT DID NOT RESULT IN AUTHORIZATION FOR HOW MUCH MEDICALLY APPROPRIATE CARE?  FOLLOW THE MONEY. ALWAYS FOR THE MONEY.

WC SHELL GAME TIMES HOW MANY INJURED WORKERS

 

If YOU make it to the “NAUGHTY LIST”  all thanks go to CNA and defense firm, Grancell Stander et al, and of course, to Wyndham Worldwide for corporate irresponsibility and callous disregard for the life of an injured worker, in a serious breach of human right and ethics, extreme discrimination of injured workers with disabilities, not excluding age and gender discrimination issues.   They could have made a difference. They chose not to.  Bummer.

Will someone let DIR Director Christine Baker know what happens where there are only illegitimate practices and legal chicanery in brain injury cases? Everybody planning to watch #Concussion?

Find Physiatrists and Neuropsychologists and their inter-disciplinary teams for helping Injured Workers with brain injuries, and stop relying on Orthopedic Surgeons who admittedly know little to nothing about brain injuries, although along with chiropractors who are the first doctors often seen after a slip and fall or foot ball injury or car crash.  Most experts will not play the killing games of Workers Compensation, as they took an OATH TO DO NO HARM.  Did you?

Also, encourage investigations into who writes these regurgitations called reports, without benefit of legitimate medical evaluations, and how much money is wasted. Investigate why/how defense firms can have the pattern and practice omission of hundreds of pages of medical records with intent to deny medical care.

Governor Brown, could you kindly have the Attorney General Investigations of corruption at the highest levels of Workers Compensation, and encourage Governors across the USA to do like-wise, and dispatch the National Guard to protect injured workers from these WorkCompsters? The FBI stands ready to help and maybe even the District Attorneys.   Thanks a bunch!

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.

In the observed slip and fall backwards on ice by Wyndham Worldwide Vacation Ownership Sales Executive Linda Ayres on 1/9/12, the following people have been involved in the case, evaluations and determinations of care for a well diagnosed concussion/traumatic brain injury/closed head injury/ptsd and more.  Summary statements in this blog:  Surviving Work Comp — Just Do It!

brain concussion tbi

See this blog since Summer 2013 index for mention of ICD-9 Codes. Use the Search Key, too.

Orders are face to face medical exams for the first set of chronological providers, separated by year by an underline….starting in 2012. (Blatant disregard of ACOEM/MTUS guidelines, but that’s for another blog.) Second set are CorVel and Maximus regurgitation reports, apparently written by RNs or others and signed by a variety of doctors, citing guidelines for necessary treatment, and somehow denying it anyway.  Plenty of expensive bla bla bla.  DO THE MATH. FOLLOW THE MONEY. ASK MORE QUESTIONS?

brain concussions football

For now, let’s just make the list.  Is your name on it?    “Let’s get started.”  Remember, all of these people have made money for seeing/knowing the Injured Worker.  Did they all provide “care” or “medical treatment”?

In contrast, Injured Worker was denied benefits, denied medical care, forced to file for welfare with Social Services and rely on the charity of friends and the Salvation Army—-proving that with Wyndham Timeshare, there are “No Free Gifts” and there is blatant and callous disregard for lives of injured workers and customers.  A friend shared this link with more news on how Wyndham Worldwide behaves in the global marketplace.

While WCAB seems to deem “evaluation after evaluation after evaluation” as evidence of InjuredWorkers receiving medical care, the Information and Assistance Officer, last resort for help for unrepresented Injured Workers, is not a doctor, nor a lawyer, and practice without those licenses is questionable indeed.

Concussion GOOGLED 9 3 2015 828 am pdt
Join the Discussin — you or someone you love could be next! http://www.concussion-movie.com/ http://www.concussion-movie.com/#

The dubiousness appears compounded when good doctors properly make legitimate and conservative recommendations for immediate and necessary care, only to have the recommendations denied by attorneys and adjusters in 2012, then, aided and abetted by Team CorVel.  Advising an Injured Worker to “have better control” of counsel when represented is a joke—if CAAA can’t police their own members, how can a Worker with a Brain Injury be expected to know when representation proves to be totally incompetent, dangerous, and worse?

CAB Commissioners and DIR seem complicit in the Gravy Train, at least in this case, which so many Super Lawyers indicate is ‘just how it is’ — happens to everyone — very common case, or maybe they just don’t know.  More on attorneys in another blog.

Follow this blog for more details that everybody knows but has kept the dirty secrets behind closed doors, while American workers and taxpayers pay and pay and pay—-with life, liberty and justice for none attacked by the Workers Compensation maiming killing brigades.

By the time you finish reading this blog, you will have a better idea of why Workers Compensation Survivors call it a GRAVY TRAIN WRECK.  (Some of these doctors were paid by CNA, some were paid by CIGNA, some were paid by the Injured Worker (unreimbursed medical expenses and miles to date exceed $43,300 – failures to receive adequate treatment have caused permanent and irreparable damage to IW.

Without WorkersCompensation, legitimate insurance would have facilitated care that would have been immediate, expert, reasonable, beneficial and IW may have returned to work within months, back in 2012. Without care, Injured Worker has been advised to make plans for Assisted Living in light of risk of dementia, with a need for personal assistance now.  Thanks WorkCompsters!

Date of Traumatic Brain Injury, an observed slip and fall backwards, in which manager helped injured worker off the ground after a prolonged period on the ground, unable to get up alone, dazed and confused:  January 9, 2012 —-  and somehow Defense firm alleges the TBI did not happen at work?  D’oh!

wc workers-comp-fraud  if your company lies

Wyndham Worldwide has graciously provided unpaid “leave of absence” with sporadic disability benefits and some chiropractic and clinical psychologist sessions in 2012, and physical therapy in 2013, then some speech therapy, occupational therapy and more physical therapy in year in 2014, with a few acupuncture treatments and EVALUATIONS BY APPROXIMATELY 40 DOCTORS since date of injury  (huh??)

Hotel discount vouchers have been graciously provided by Wyndham Worldwide Human Resources so that self discovered and self-procured brain injury program could be attended since October 2014, but no help to get medical care or proper primary treating doctors for clearly diagnosed brain injury.  One workcomp QME neurologist said that ‘women over the age of 35 are not entitled to medical care for traumatic brain injury.’  Will someone else please notify the ADA and EEOC and ACLU and NLG?  Thanks.  That ABA doesn’t seem to care, nor does CAAA.

work comp guidelines

Did ALL those doctors all fail to properly fill out the recommendations for medical care? How about the crew of doctors who just changed the date of injury to 2013, then used 2012 reports to falsely allege ‘pre-existing’ brain injury?  D’oh!

No worries, fraud is apparently not prosecuted in WorkComp cases, even if it violates Article 14 of the State of California Constitution  and even when it violates the 5th and 14th Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of America. Whaaaaat?  Yeah, the #Workcompsters seem to have some sort of exemption from prosecution.  Could somebody ask the ACLU and NLG to look into that further?  Thanks!

While leave has been extended repeatedly, there has been no effort by the employer to intervene or audit failures of the work comp carrier to provide medically necessary treatments since date of injury.  “Proper Notice of MPN” is apparently telling an injured worker “see any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and providing injured worker with an incomplete DCW-1 form to give to the doctor (without any insurance company information on it.)  My my my.  Wyndham Wyndham Wyndham!

Efforts requesting mediation were met with further hostilities and insults, including calls to injured worker asking, “…when ARE you going to die?” and bullying recommendation that injured worker consider a Court Appointed Conservator to finalize maneuvers through the obfuscation of the #WorkComp Legal Chicanery. Complaints have been made to multiple law enforcement agencies.

Since injured worker’s primary workcomp treating doctor, for a brain injury, has been primarily an Orthopedic Surgeon, who apparently got tired of the threats of exclusion from a highly profitable referral network by insurance carrier for attempting since February 2013 to get specialized brain injury further evaluations and treatment is now off the case,  since December 2014.  The secondary doctor, a neuro-psych found by injured worker in April 2014, self-procured and then authorized as an exception, has been off the case since April 2015.  What’s an injured worker to do without a primary treating doctor and without competent legal counsel?  Yikes!

No doctors have yet been willing to take liability to release injured worker to date without medical care back to work, and now the Catch 22 seems to be to find a doctor willing to re-evaluate, review all records, and determine the improvements made at the self-procured COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM, since October 2014, with the continuation and completion of program anticipated through December 2015, and if and when return to work with or without accommodations may happen.  

Social Security Disability has recently determined that the injured worker is chronically and permanently disabled.  Injured Worker does not want to be “disabled” and is working very hard to learn compensatory strategies for cognitive losses and impairments.

[New TBI Survivor asks if anyone ever has challenges getting groceries home after shopping diligently…]

Linda: Wait till you start using lists, and really focus on tasks at hand…then get everything on the list and leave a bag or two of paid groceries in the cart and wonder for hours where the stuff is that was checked off on the list…. unsure emoticon

Or when you splurge on some great hair products and can’t find them to save your life…. for months, then find them in a cupboard where they don’t belong… gasp emoticon …. Welcome to the World of Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors….!

Have you seen a Speech Therapist yet? Occupational Therapist?

They helped me see that I can easily do tasks with TWO – STEPS. That third step can really kick butt…. like making coffee: 1) put coffee in maker 2) turn pot on 3) wonder why coffee is spilling all over the counter; find pot in dishwasher; try again; 1) put fresh dry coffee in maker; put pot in maker 3) wonder why coffee isn’t done yet….. unsure emoticon

Life with TBI is so

[ Another new TBI Survivor asks if anybody else sleeps all the time ]

LINDA: I slept most of the first year. COGNITIVE FATIGUE is a real butt kicker. Sometimes after a long drive to a doctor’s evaluation, I had to find a safe shopping center to park and rest. Sometimes I still have to find a safe place to nap while travelling here and there. I carry a blankie. unsure emoticon

One idiot neurologist actually wanted me to drive 100 miles each way to his office WITHOUT SLEEP and only HIS office with HIS technician for a ‘sleep deprived EEG’ that second month.

Wow, I told the lawyer I was injured not stupid, and requested a smarter neurologist. The response? Termination of benefits, and begin of the ‘kicking to the curb.’ ‘Curb kicking’ went into full motion, with other bullying and terrorism practices by ‘the Defense’ upon clear diagnosis of brain injury, and hasn’t stopped yet; ongoing since January 9, 2012. Yeah, in America! Ain’t that awful.

WorkCompsters apparently only treat brain injury in California with the ‘rest and wait and wait and wait and wait till you’re kicked to the curb, they hope you die’ program.

Wyndham has paid the big premiums for that sort of WorkComp Insurance Policy for it’s injured workers from CNA aka America’s Casualty insurance firm. It’s pretty similar in other states and nations. Same crowd of #WorkCompsters?

tbi you aint gullible

My friend and teacher, Michelle Wild, just recently released an Apple app for the brain injured population. It is called Manage My Fatigue.  YOU could write a great article about Michelle Wild and her 25 plus years of work helping people with brain injuries develop compensatory strategies… She also has a website called making cognitive connections… I think the address is ID4theweb.com. There is a wealth of information there… Worth checking out.

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

My date of injury was January 9th 2012… Living without much working memory… is another butt kicker… as is the rule about ’embrace the new you’… Easier said than done. ☆♡◇☆♡◇☆ #InjuredWorkersUniting #SilentNoMore

‘Wyndham  TIMESHARE SETTLES Brain Injury Case after 3.5 years for $3.5 MILLION’

Rock, Paper, Scissors!  ‘Balls, Boobs, Brains!’

 

“BTW – I keep asking for an attorney for you. It’s tough. The perception is that your case isn’t big enough under current law, so getting someone to pay attention to it is very difficult.”  – Anonymous

“So that means that breasts and testicles are more valuable than brains? !?” ASKS THE INJURED WORKER!

 

“In describing this class of traumatic brain injury”, says Asvar, “the term ‘mild’ is an absolute misnomer given the severity of possible complications and repercussions.” He adds, “Dismissing someone’s brain injury as ‘mild’ is akin to saying someone is ‘mildly’ paraplegic.” Chris Asvar, Esq.   http://www.asvarlaw.com/casestudies/

Note:  Chris Asvar did his job for his young client: “LOS ANGELES – January 25, 2012.  Los Angeles-based attorney Christopher Asvar has just secured the highest known workers’ compensation insurance settlements in California history, totaling $8.9 million on behalf of his young client who suffered a work-place traumatic brain injury.”    

Note:  Romano Trust vs Sedgwick apparently gives #WorkCompsters a green light to maim and kill injured workers in California without recourse, and sometimes a fine of $100,000, if pushed.

America! America!  What a national shame!

 

rock paper scissors

 CNA / Grancell Defense Team apologizes for the misunderstandings and failures that preceded settlement.  CA ADJ8181903

.

Nawwww, they won’t even authorize prism neuro-optometric lenses or auditory processing devices, nor chiropractic and acupuncture for pain relief, nor will they replace resigned primary treating doctors without a Utilization Review, that there is no doctor to make such a request, and the CNA 25+ year veteran Claims Adjuster has no authority apparently other than to sign a form that says ‘it’s too early to determine if there is any permanent injury’ so we’ll look again in 90 days.  D’oh.  They didn’t pay temp total disability in 2012-2013, and the State did, then discounted payback, causing Injured Worker to lose the ’52 weeks’ that would have been available had they paid the 104 weeks, as required by law and directed to via Court hearing in April 2012.

.

They scoffed at the law and bullied the injured worker and doctors then, and continue to scoff  and bully today.  They have help.  CorVel and Maximus, and a handful of industry leased/owned doctors who write inaccurate reports that could be deemed fraudulent if taken to trial.  WCAB guidelines indicate estimated Permanent Disability payments are to commence within 14 days of final TTD payment, which was May 2014, in a chunk after EDD and local politicians became involved, since WCAB – Riverside refused repeatedly to help injured worker get treatment or benefits, in clear violations of ADA and EEOC.   Grancell continues the same course of action, profitting by taxpayer ignorance and apathy as they bilk California’s coffers and destroy the California WorkForce….

 

IMG_0418

See details at https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts/   Someone else just recently did a blog on how #WorkCompsters value testicles over breasts. Astonishing!

 

They want me to see an Ear Nose and Throat Doctor to dispute an extensive auditory processing evaluation of last year performed at SCRIPPS Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center in Encinitas, California.  What’s next, will they demand that I see a Podiatrist to dispute the Audiologists, Neurologists, Neuropsychologists, Orthopedic Surgeons, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists and Functional Neurology Experts, along with Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and Speech Therapists, and focus on the often referenced sprained ankle of 1/9/12?  Oh yes, I think they need a dozen neuro-psych reports till they find one they like; “Doctor Shopping and File Churning” enhances bottom lines for WorkComp Defense firms?  D’oh! In November 2012, defense attempted to coerce settlement of the customary $100,000 after initial attempts at obfuscation of medical evidence and failures to provide necessary evaluations and treatments that first year.  Their report of future medical was extensive— and that was prior to getting all the facts of the actual extent of the injuries.  What say their Risk Peeps now.  They are all looking at my LinkedIn Profile.

.

Anybody with “Juevos” at CNA willing to step up to settlement?  Maybe somebody from Thomas Motamed’s office?

 .

For the record, treatments and evaluations provided by Grancell/CNA and self-procured are discussed in these blogs:

https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/2015/02/13/workcomp-evaluations-are-not-treatments/

 

Well, at least the ‘cost burden has been shifted’ to the Social Security Administration and Medicare due to the brain injury upon evaluation of all medical records.  How’s that for bilking the public after more than 3 years of torturing and causing permanent disabilities to an injured worker?   I am grateful and the experience at the SSA was kind, compassionate and an encounter with people of integrity, in sharp contrast to the horrors of Workers Compensation experiences.

Stephen Hawking

Add the approximately $16,000 CNA was paid by the State of California in the form of a deep discount on reimbursements for EDD payment in the first year because CNA refused to pay TTD?

 

CNA is really making big bucks on this “Exclusive Remedy” huh?

 

How much does the insurance broker make in commissions on the Wyndham account?  SEC or some regulatory agencies requires Wyndham to provide such information to shareholders when requested; I have requested approximately 5 times in more than that many months, to no avail.  It may have something to do with allegations that the Wyndham Board and Risk Management have some members with questionable ties to the insurance industry?  I heard the stories, but they didn’t quite compute in my brain.

#WorkCompChat; O SAY CAN YOU SEE?

 

flag distress signal

Could the lack of  competent representation for injured workers be related to these issues?

Below are more insights for possible incorporation to future industry blogs…from an Injured Worker point of view, and something the legal people alleging to represent injured workers are also clueless about.
.
Attorneys in CA like to shrug and say they know nothing about Social Security and Employment Law and ADA Compliance and how it all interfaces with one the big scam.
 .
Heck, even the Defense Counsel who is a “Partner/Shareholder” boasts of his incompetence regarding ADA and Employment Law!  D’oh!  It takes a Psychopath, huh?! A WorkComp attorney who is oblivious to SSA guidelines, ADA, Employment Law and social media fight-back-work arounds is an idiot and a menace to society, imho.  Ditto for return to work trials, guidelines, strategies etc.
 .
Social Security has a rehabilitation component called PASS (available to me for the next year or so) where they may help me create a consulting business or something I can do from behind my computer, if Wydham continues to fail to engage in the interactive process, and particularly if they wrongfully terminate me.  There are also some tax incentives to corporations that hire disabled Americans.  I am hopeful that if I cannot return to face-to-face selling that Wyndham may create a position so that I can help clean up the desperate EPIC FAIL of a WorkComp system currently in place, and that I may be able to help train HR and Staff on proper handling of workplace injuries, and when to do simple things like “CALL 911”
 .
The SSA paperwork also advises me to submit medical expenses that I had to pay within 30 days, which it sounds like they may reimburse since CNA refused to.  A friend may help me assemble that next week.  It’s half done, like so many of my paper projects.  Pure cost burden shifting, and that’s one of the items I will ask the Senators to help me with.  Somebody can reimburse my $30k out of pocket medical and rehab expenses, and the shortfall of $18,000 California gave in the form of deep reimbursement demand discount to CNA for refusing to pay TTD in 2012 – 2013 .  Offset for my shortened life span and loss of earning capacity, along with potential devasting future medical is a factor.  Continuation at the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program through December 2015 is very important to maximize potential return to work, although a second year is recommended, and both will be impossible without funds. Your try living on $1,700/month with a mountain of bills behind you, and a brain that works like a 286 computer on dial-up, with virtually no working memory. Does a $20,000 annual income put me in the sheer poverty category?  That’s a very harsh transition from being a fun-loving, globe trotting vacation sales executive, unable to return to work due to auditory, vision, speech and other processing issues from the fall of 1/9/12.  The manager said, “Just rub some dirt on it and you’ll be fine’…. nice try, but it didn’t work.
 .
If you know of a California attorney with integrity, courage, smarts and staff to take on this multi-dimensional case, please contact me directly at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com or via phone at 760 368 7236.  Know that the Defense Firm is big on bullying doctors, injured workers, and even, apparently, structured settlement peeps. D’oh.  Mediation was repeatedly refused by defense.  Callous disregard for human life is the SOP, along with bullying and threats and blatant disregard for law, order and life.
 .
It is my hope and intention to return to work by the end of the year, even though all the medical evidence indicates that is highly improbable due to the extend of the brain injuries.  Yes, I can type, but if any CAAA attorney believes that the ability to type indicates no brain injury, they should turn in their license to practice.  They are  incompetent to allege to represent any injured worker, let alone a brain injury case, and such ignorance and incompentence presents imminent danger to the working public.
 .
Remember the quote by Chris Asvar (who won’t take the case because prior counsel and too many others ‘didn’t do their job’)…..I’ve asked again, but won’t hold my breath on a response this year either.  Read it again.  LET IT SINK IN.
 .
“In describing this class of traumatic brain injury”, says Asvar, “the term ‘mild’ is an absolute misnomer given the severity of possible complications and repercussions.” He adds, “Dismissing someone’s brain injury as ‘mild’ is akin to saying someone is ‘mildly’ paraplegic.” Chris Asvar, Esq.http://www.asvarlaw.com/casestudies/
