DOES THE WORKERS’ COMPENSATION SYSTEM FULFILL IT’S OBLIGATIONS TO INJURED WORKERS? NOOOO !! IT DOES NOT! Is it Culpable Negligence?

“…Culpable negligence means recklessly acting without reasonable caution and putting another person at risk of injury or death (or failing to do something with the same consequences)…” [1]




“….It is clear that workplace injuries have significant crossover effects on Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare, and other programs. While further study will be needed to expose the specific effects of changes in workers’ compensation laws, evidence suggests that the costs of workplace injuries are being shifted not only to injured workers and their families, but also to federal programs….”

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! IT DOES NOT!

[That’s just the TIP OF THE ICEBERG! ASK ANY PROFESSIONAL WHO LEFT OR IS LEAVING THE INDUSTRY…ASK ANY INJURED WORKER ABOUT THE …OBSTACLES TO JUSTICE AND CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS….]

DO ATTORNEYS FULFILL THEIR ETHICAL AND MORAL OBLIGATIONS TO INJURED WORKERS IN AMERICA? NO……THE MAJORITY DO NOT.

ASK ANY INJURED WORKER FAILED BY THE SYSTEM WHERE THE CULPABLE NEGLIGENCE SEEMS TO LIE.

Culpable negligence means recklessly acting without reasonable caution and putting another person at risk of injury or death (or failing to do something with the same consequences).

It is the omission to do something which a reasonable, prudent and honest man would do, or the doing something which such a man would not do under all the circumstances surrounding each particular case. [State v. Emery, 78 Mo. 77, 80 (Mo. 1883)]

“The term culpable negligence should be construed to mean a negligence of a higher degree than that which in civil cases is held to be gross negligence, and must be a negligence of a degree so gross as to be tantamount to a wanton disregard of, or utter indifference to, the safety of human life.” [Smith v. State, 197 Miss. 802 (Miss. 1945)]
