#WorkCompStinks and is verrrry slow. What if there was a statute of limitations for #WorkComp claims? If the insurance carrier does not provide enough medical care within, for example, 104 weeks, settlement becomes mandatory & return to work possible? Gov Brown…are you & Christine Baker & Ronnie Caplane and pals listening? I’ve been off work HOW LONG on the rest & wait & wait & wait programs?!!! How much money does the State lose to the insurance peeps on this one? Nevermind what it costs me, huh? Hmph. ADJ8181903. FYI. Thanks. ‘No need to thank me; it’s what I do’ Linda & Friends

‘…tell her to take it to The Hague!’…. Should she???
and threat to sue injured worker is compounded by recommendation that ‘If she has complaints of human rights violations. ….”

Welcome back, David DePaolo! Wow! The CompLaude Awards was great also, thank you for doing it! And for all you and your staff do! My calendar is marked for Dec 5, 2015, and I’m making my list of nominees…and will keep a close eye on those who might be better served on a list to the Attorney General.
workcompcentral WORD ON THE INDUSTRY
“My life had business relationship challenges too, but thankfully no relations with criminals, though I was stalked a couple of times by some injured workers (and not exactly sure why).” BUMMER!!!
!!!!! That’s awful! Don’t be too sure it was a real injured worker? After I shared about the CompLaude Awards on my blogs, I experienced a pretty vile set of attacks and dramatic ‘character assassination’ from a group of alleged long term injured workers who have allegedly been fighting ‘the system’ for many many years.
Like you, I thought at first it was disgruntled IWs, but the more I thought about it, there is plausible deniability, and it might have just been ‘industry trolls’….at least in my case. I blogged about it and titled it:
“Insurance Industry Trolls or WorkComp Opiate War Casualties?”
I also blogged about the call from the Chicago insurance carrier guy who asked, amongst other things, that since it has been ‘nearly 3 years’ that I have been waiting for medical care, he then asked, “….so when ARE you going to die?” It’s been 3 years of waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting….
2014 was eventful, that’s for sure. Oh, yeah, and tell Peter R. that it’s not shrinking, the criminal elements are just going deeper under layers and layers of legal chicanery.
Maybe WorkCompCentral will do a series of stories on actual injured workers. Also, a study on doctors and lawyers who have left the WorkComp world could be of dramatic interest to all concerned???
ASK MORE QUESTIONS….
NAIDW.org is a wealth of information of the harsh realities to the injured workers, you know, the people WorkComp is supposed to be about serving? Yeah, we know it’s not an “Employee Benefit” and has no pretense of it anymore.
In 2015 it would be great to get more people reading more of the best of the best industry blogs…. so we can incite “Committees of Bloggers for #WorkComp Transformations”
…. I blogged about that too, today, and included one of your 2006 power pieces. That will certainly incite some “cognitive dissonance”… 😀
Wish me luck on my case….that silly ol’ defense attorney is have another tizzy and says he is going to ask the Judge to find me in contempt…. Hmph. He also asked recently what makes me believe I am entitled to any medical benefits or disability benefits and he cited some laws. I suggested, in response, he read the California Labor Code AND the US Constitution.
Did you know that Office of the District Attorneys and Congress people and more can be reached via LinkedIn? Yeah, surprised me, too!
Let’s hope more people in the WorkComp Industry get LinkedIn
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN 2015
“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW”
2014 in review ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS NOW
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 8,000 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.
Can loosely organized Committees of Bloggers extend the lives of InjuredWorkers in America and elsewhere?
Can the corruption be exposed and the criminals indicted?
Can we all just get along, and stop the maimings and killings of the “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES” industries?
Can the Sonderkommando be reformed, or must they also be tried and those found guilty executed for high treason and crimes against humanity?
Can the Psychopaths be stopped before it’s too late?
IS IT ALREADY TOO LATE?
The #WorkComp Industry is heavily armed, organized, and connected. They will keep their mega billion dollar industry profits by any means necessary. The death tolls are already apparently calculated into their business plans.
If you have a job, have a job injury, or care about your fellow human beings, check out the “Top 25 Blogs for Workers’ Compensation and Workplace Issues” since 2010.
Follow the blogs that seem of interest to you, whether they are GOOD, BAD, OR UGLY. SEE THE LINKS BELOW, VIA LexisNexis, and share with your pals.
Next we’ll look at the pathetic dis-organization of injured workers, doctors, lawyers, and other providers who keep the secrets of the perpetrators, allowing generation after generation to be harmed by the criminal elements of WorkComp.
It’s time for the “99%” to transcend “learned helplessness” and fight back. The internet LEVELS THE PLAYING FIELD.
