Remember Remember….. WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW

Hey America! Can We Talk about this Congressional Letter and #WorkComp and a Congressional Task Force on Workers Compensation Abuses and Torture of the American Working Classes?

DID YOU READ AND DISCUSS THE CONGRESSIONAL LETTER ON WORK COMP TO SECRETARY OF LABOR TOM PEREZ?

“Let’s Get Right To It!”

Below is an excerpt; click the link to go directly to the site.

CONGRESS AND RIGHT TO SUE

Letter from Federal Lawmakers to Labor Department on Workers’ Comp –

Read and share, blog about it, as if lives depend on it.  The existing model of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES SEEMS TO BE A SWATH OF VIOLATIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND VARIOUS STATE CONSTITUTIONS.

Carpe’ Diem, Y’all!  [ “To put aside all differences, all fears, all worries, and just go for it. ]

Let’s hope for a WORKCOMP CONGRESSIONAL TASK FORCE that includes cooperation of not only Department of Labor, but also the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigations and yes, the National Guard to Protect Injured Workers in the most offending, dangerous states until solutions are found.  Demand Domestic Torture Reports as a result of existing Workers Compensation practices.

Send a note of thanks to these Congress people who have gone on record before the America public of their concerns of the nation’s treatment of injured workers, forcing them into poverty and premature death.

Tell them your story too, and ask for an immediate TASK FORCE TO FURTHER INVESTIGATE AND PROSECUTE PERPETRATORS OF HARM TO INJURED AMERICAN WORKERS.

Tell your story to the people at ProPublica…..they have just hit the tip of the iceberg, wouldn’t you agree?  Start your own blog like mine, and be polite, but don’t sugar coat the atrocities.

Do you remember the “Women’s Revolution” and the “Civil Rights Movements” of the 60’s and 70’s?   Hey Kids, Yes, We Had a Revolution, just like John Lennon sang about.  We marched, we sang songs, we protested. We wrote letters.  Many of us then assimilated into main stream society.  Some continue to know WE HAVE A DREAM.  Others were and are total sell outs.

 

Draw your own conclusions, but be aware, the WarOnWorkers is real.  

I made it more than 45 years without being harmed by WorkCompsters, and I have been fighting for my life nearly 4 years now, a rookie in the field of WorkComp Survivors.  

The only real choice a seriously Injured Worker seems to have without Congressional intervention is “the shower on the left or the shower on the right.”

Workers Compensation Insurance is a MEGA BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY, with apparently legislated fraud written on behalf of those shareholders and workers who profit the most.

The top ten insurance industry CEO’s make annual personal incomes in excess of $10 million… How do they do that? THINK THINK THINK.  See“Top 10 highest-paid CEOs at U.S. commercial insurance companies”and draw your own conclusions.

District Attorney offices, at least in California, are provided with millions of dollars each year to “fight fraud”….. How’s that working for California’s injured worker population so far?  You might have to wait 3 or 4 years for a call back!

WORKERS COMPENSATION IS NOT AN EMPLOYEE BENEFIT.

“It’s a Shell Game!”  Injured Workers are the Cash Cows for the industries. You don’t believe it?  Ask any Injured Worker Survivor, or any Doctor or Lawyer or other provider who has left the business, refusing to participate in the harm to injured workers for the profits of the few.

If you’re injured on the job, BE PREPARED TO FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE AGAINST SOME VERY FORMIDABLE ENEMIES OF HUMANITY. There’s no “opt out” for the injured workers — it comes with a complete stripping of civil and human rights.  Thanks, Legislators!

If you have friends or loved ones being destroyed by the system, don’t let them fight alone.  Don’t let them go to doctor evaluations alone. Document everything. Congress may indeed instigate WorkCompGate investigations.

YOU HAVE THE INTERNET!  WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.   ‘Teach your parents well….. THINK LOCALLY * ACT GLOBALLY #OccupyVirtually and #DodgeTheRads!’
We fought against things also like this:Well! Some industry men have suggested that the tone of my blogs is too angry, and that nobody likes to deal with angry people, and that angry women seem to indicate a need to be ‘locked up in a psych ward’ — ‘medicated with mood elevators’ or have a ‘Court Appointed Conservator’ to make decisions to maneuver through the Workers Compensation Systems.[Doctors and non-retained attorneys have told me to KEEP screaming, somebody has to do it!]How about the neurologist who said ‘Women over the age of 35 are not entitled to medical care for brain injury’…. Or the forensic psych who suggested there was no concussion, just “poor anger management skills” and no medical treatment necessary.  What about the Judge who said, “Don’t use the word ‘fraud” in the Courthouse— that’s a legal term.” Are we seeing patterns here, too?   Do we hear “MCPs” squealing a bit?  Goodness, what a set of setbacks for Americans everywhere!

HA!  Tell that to Rosa Parks fans, huh?

Hi Pamela at The Advocator  (and other interested parties and Stakeholders):

Thank you for your constant kindness and helpfulness.  Attached are the requested EDD pieces regarding disability payments shifted from the insurance carrier, CNA, in their willful and callous disregard of California Labor Codes in 2012 and questionable accounting practices since then.

(In this ongoing fight for my life, the Public Version of this missive is located at https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts)
 

The good news is that Tina Jordan, HR Regional Director at Wyndham Worldwide in San Diego graciously and kindly authorized the discount hotel vouchers so that I will be able to continue the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program for the Summer Session, which begins June 20th and she kindly said more are needed, to let her know.

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!”

There is a company that, as part of their cost-savings recommendations, recommends that Employers send ‘get well cards’ to their injured workers immediately with regular communication toward return to work.  (My address is below if any stakeholders want to begin to implement such a program and see where it takes things.) http://wcmanual.com/get-well-cards-package-of-10/  More tips below.

As most of you know, Wyndham HR was advised, apparently by defense, that they could not even speak to me, and when in December 2014 I attended a public open house – no resume required – come meet the managers and find out about Wyndham Worldwide – I was the only attendee from the public, but management made me sit in the empty room for about 45 minutes then politely told me they could not talk to me, couldn’t help me in any way, and that I would have to leave.  I was able to see a few former co-workers as they left the office, and that was fun and heart warming.  I told one former manager that I’m not quite right in the head yet and he, in kind and sales professional form say, ‘Don’t you worry about that, when you come back we’ll help you get your mojo back…’ or words to that effect, being encouraging and welcoming.

Coastline ABI Program is helping me discover compensatory skills to ‘do life’ again, and I am very grateful.  It was the kindest letter I have received from Wyndham since the injury, and I hope to hear back on extension of leave accommodation requested, and that we will commence the interactive process required by FEHA, so that I can get back to work when medically released.

The doctors are not hopeful of my return to work this year, but I am.  A second year at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program has been suggested by multiple people, and I do not like the label of being “100% disabled”…..my accountant used the term on my taxes as she said, “Linda, it’s been over 3 years.  Do you really think you will ever be able to return to work?”  NOBODY LIKES TERM DISABLED, AND I AM DISABLED BECAUSE OF CNA’S REFUSAL TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE REASONABLE AND NECESSARY MEDICAL CARE IN 2012.  Monsters, but friends tell me, “Those lawyers are just doing their jobs” and I always say, “So did the Sonderkommando!  Just following orders is an insufficient defense!”

Here is the EDD  6/1/ 15 “Explanation of Benefit Payment Record” from 2012 through 2014. [available to the public upon request at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com]  Also attached are CNA print outs.  [Available to the public upon request at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com]  My math skills have been reduced dramatically since the injury, and I can’t make senses of any of this.  I just know that CNA has gotten away with some pretty coarse ‘cooking of books’ and violations of labor codes in initial refusals to pay TTD, refusals to provide medical care, and continuous outrageous refusals to reimburse simply miles to their doctors, and medically necessary treatments that were recommended but denied by non-doctors—being lawyers and adjusters without medical expertise, further evidenced below.

I am awaiting response from appeal of February/March 2015 from another industry leased/owned company called MAXIMUS.  Defense sent them exparte records with probable intent to continue to deny medical care, and we’ll see if Maximus deals with medical realities or just follows orders of their benefactors. CorVel certainly appears to follow implied directions of the defense counsel, even when an idiot would questions some of the directions.  A YELP review of some of their doctors, including their acupuncture and dope dealing neurologists who perform ‘independent medical reviews’ on behalf of CorVel  would make you laugh, to lighten the intensity of the allegations herewith.  FOLLOW THE MONEY, ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY.

Will you let me know the findings of your accounting people also?  I am still working on organizing medical expenses to submit that may serve as further offsets.  I have spent more than $35,000 out of pocket to stay alive, despite the interference of CNA and their legal counsel in their continuous pattern of malicious, callous and willful harm, and ‘deny medical care by any means necessary’ approach to breaches of fiduciary responsibilities.

Now they want me to see an Ear Nose and Throat doctor for my brain injury, a doctor’s office that admittedly has no knowledge of brain injury.  As loss of hearing was mentioned in a very comprehensive auditory processing evaluation performed at the SCRIPPS Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program last summer (2014) now the Defense attorney wants an ENT to dispute it so they can continue to  refuse to provide auditory devices and auditory therapy.

That ENT request is the same nonsense as their leased/owned neurologists who have no clue that vision processing issues are a consequence of brain injury, and ‘corrected vision’ with prism lenses (that CNA also refused to pay for, or even authorize evaluations since 2012. The Judge refused my ADA requests to be seen and heard regarding this matter, as is another pattern and practice of WCAB Court I have experienced repeatedly since 2012.

I fullly expect Grancell to demand a podiatrist QME for my right ankle any day now.

I don’t know where the Workcompsters find their doctors and other participants, but it was heart warming to read about the recent bust of that dirty doctor ring in New Jersey last week.  I hope the FBI commences investigations into WorkComp, in California, with my case.

I don’t know how these records show the approximately $49K payout by EDD and the approximately $31K payback by CNA, with a bonus of approximately $18K by negotiated discount to CNA, apparently from Taxpayer coffers?

By copy, I am letting the CNA Adjuster know the actuals paid by EDD and asking if CNA wants to adjust their allegations that they “paid 104 weeks”…. the schedules of payments certainly dispute that, don’t they?  They may also want to revisit their legal responsibilities to pay on-going estimated permanent disability payments commencing 14 days after last TTD payment….which appears to be … May 2014 by EDD?

#1  Employers that send GET WELL CARDS to injured workers and maintain communications achieve better return work results and over all outcomes.  See more here:  http://wcmanual.com/get-well-cards-package-of-10/

#2  Google Manage My Fatigue for a new app released by one of the instructors at Coastline Community College, with an aim to assist the Department of Defense in a simple app (utilizing more than 25 years research of helping Acquired Brain Injury Survivors deal with cognitive fatigue and reintegrate into mainstream life post TBI, and post concussion and post PTSD.   Michelle Ranae Wild can also be found on LinkedIn.

#3  “Your Radiation This Week” ongoing weekly series contains information that impacts not only the hospitality and travel industries, but also the risk management arms of the insurance industries.  http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/bobnichols/

Bob Nichols, Writer and Contributor at VETERANS TODAY  has written extensively on nuclear matters, pre-and-post Fukushima.  The #Wigner Effect may end up being one of the very visible consequences with the least plausible deniability in the coming days/years, as more planes crash and burn. Aviation catastrophe attorneys may soon be finding an uptick in their businesses.  Even drive-to-destinations are impacted, as you will see that Bakersfield, California is the Champion of CPMs in the USA …. (highest radiation readings as of last week)…. Remember remember to also ASK ABOUT FUKUSHIMA NOW, and don’t believe the pro-nuker propaganda that ‘there is no immediate danger.’

START WITH THE SCIENCE.  DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.  SEE THE SOURCES IN EACH OF THE ARTICLES; DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS    http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/bobnichols/

#4  ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMPENSATION GRAVY TRAINS  https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts/ is an amateur effort to increased awareness of Brain Injury and the horrors of the common practices of WorkComp insurance carriers such as CNA, which cost shareholders money, cost corporations loss of producing employees, and cost injured workers their hopes, homes, dreams and life….all for the mega profits of the few who are ‘just following orders’….

#InjuredWorkersUniting  #SilentNoMore

#5 Huff-Post has a series of contributors writing about Brain Injuries, that the adjusters and doctors might be wise to review. https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=huff+post+brain+injury On the whole, it does seem that Brain Injury Survivors have much more information about symptoms, consequences and treatments that the vast majority of the AMA and ABA crowds..and LinkedIn has a wealth of resources, as does Facebook.  THINK THINK THINK MOFOS thanks

#CountOnMe is a favorite Wyndham Slogan, so to each and all of you, i remind you, I AM INJURED, NOT STUPID; #CountOnMe…. to expose these atrocities and either help you correct them and/or help the FBI investigate and indict with probable cause and plenty of evidence.  For any of you who may be people of faith, you also know that ‘One person and God constitutes an Army….’

Are #CorVel UR Non-Recommendations Simply Hogwash?

WorkComp Demolition?  “PULL!”
.
Has anybody else experienced a pattern of practice by CorVel reports, allegedly written by various doctors but that appear to written by ‘less educated’ RNs, with skewed facts and gross mis-statements (some are pretty hysterical, if they were not so life-threatening!)
mlk hitler germany
The CorVel patterns of practice with allegations of attempts to reach requesting doctor for more information, with ‘no contact’ made because requesting doctor failed to jump through hoops and respond within minutes? Or how about the copies received by mail demanding response with 72 hours, postmarked 2 days or more past date of alleged request?  Or when they allege they left a message at a certain number, that is to rehabilitation unit recreation room, at which the requesting doctor has never been, let alone receive messages?   How about the guys call and say they are the doctor, but they are not the doctor, or at least a different doctor signs the report?  How about when the reports allege there was no contact, and the injured was present during the communications? Does that ever happen out there???
 .
One legal pal suggested that CorVel piece alone paves the way for CLASS ACTION for some smart class action/civil rights firm.  There was a recent article somewhere by someone complaining about CorVel, in addition to Mayor Betsy and Forth Worth Police Associations, too.   Maybe their Union could do a little…investigations into CorVel and nation maiming and terrorizing of injured workers?
 .
Does that just happen on Brain Injury cases?  Hmmmmmm  Anyhow…. Below is another little missive to CNA….. I got a little distracted trying to do some paper work today, and I just see red when I think of these people.
 .
Someone recently said, “Now, Linda, those lawyers are just doing their jobs.  Work Comp is broken; Nobody gets rich off WorkComp.”
.
😕   I nearly spit and said, “Not true.  It’s a mega billion dollar industry, and the only losers are the Injured Workers.  Not only have they failed to pay me disability benefits, they cooked the books and got approximately $18K in award money for refusing to pay TTD in 2012/2013 [State paid $49k 2012-2013, CNA reimbursed $31K in May 2014; injured worker screwed again] AND FOR FAILING TO PROVIDE MEDICALLY NECESSARY TREATMENTS ALL ALONG.
#GrandWorkCompFraud on the American People and Corporations
.
Not only does CNA fail to comply with basic labor code to provide immediate reasonable and necessary medical treatment, THEIR COUNSEL HAS THREATENED ALL SELF-PROCURED PROVIDERS, INTERRUPTING SELF-PROCURED CARE, AND USING FINANCIAL TERRORISM TO ENSURE MEDICAL CARE IS NOT PROCURED.
.
Then, they use fancy legal chicanery to continue to obfuscate the facts that they have, in a pattern of continuous harm, FAILED TO PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ACOEM, MTUS, OR EVEN 7TH GRADER COMMON SENSE! Where do they find these clowns to write reports on behalf of the defense firms.  I will NEVER forget the forensic psychiatrist who said that ‘if the finder of facts found that there was indeed a slip and fall and concussion, medical treatment would be necessary; there was not, and is no head injury, and she probably just has epilepsy.”
.
D’OH!  MY MANAGER HELPED ME UP FROM THE ICE, AND MY COLLEAGUES HAD A GOOD LAUGH AT THE SNOW ALL OVER ME, AND MY DAZED AND CONFUSED APPEARANCE…….   The Admin Manager told me to “See any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and gave me an incomplete DWC-1 form (no insurance info on it at all, just his signature)..D’oh!  Defense firms says that was “proper service” of their alleged “MPN”….. I was required to complete my shift, and find my way down an icy mountain road (20 miles) and then down a desert highway (40 more miles).  How did I do it and survive?  But for the Grace of God!….

DEMOLITION?   PULL!

Demolition of WorkComp  March 2015
NOTE:  Upon verification of Brain Injury is when TTD stopped (April 2012) and terrorism began.  In November 2012, they attempted to coerce early settlement that required forfeiting job, social security, medical, and more….for $100,000, less attorney fees.  That attorney no longer represents me.  He said it was a small community, work comp, and nobody would believe I have a brain injury.  D’oh.  Those idiots don’t even know what a physiatrist is, let alone brain lobes, cognitive and executive functions, etc.   We’ll talk more about attorneys soon…. Must get back to tasks at hand.

Dear Fred:
 .
Please provide me with another PD Advance by the end of the month.
I will need another advance of estimated Permanent Disability in the amount of $20,000 in order to move forward with return to work planning and obtaining medically necessary treatments, devices and software that have been properly requested since date of injury, by multiple doctors, and now, with more Grancell file churning, are moving into the IMR process.   I would like to receive the advance no later than March 30, 2015.
 .
 DOJ ADA
ADA ACCOMMODATIONS:  I am still awaiting word from Wyndham on extended leave of absence through December 2015, then return to work at Palm Springs, which is important to my planning at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program, a State institution, supported also by the Department of Rehabilitation.  The program is very intenstive, and  primarily for people who have received and exhausted all medically necessary treatments; not too many of us have been denied medical care for years; unless they are also injured workers, like me.
 .
I am hoping I will be able to return to work without any accommodations, upon completion of Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program in December.  The counselors suggest I may need a second year at Coastline to maximize my cognitive functionality, but that will be determined later in the year.  Transition planning (back to the community) is a big part of the program.
 .
Please also consider the PD advance request as part of the ADA accommodations request, as CNA has refused to provide medical care and TTD the first two years, leaving me in a very precarious situation, and financial stress is counter-productive to brain injury recovery.
 .
I understand that it may be just the defense firm “just doing his/her job” and “just following orders” but mis-statements with intent to deny medical care are frowned upon, as are omission of medical records to procure same result.
 .
Suggesting that the February 2015 Corvel modified recommendations will not be honored for some made up reasons by Defense, is unconscionable, as usual.  I did not hear back from you this week, so I must assume you concur with the defense bad faith and ill will?
 .
Ignoring all prior medical records with hopes that yet another neuro-psych eval will be from an industry leased doctor, is not quite right, is it?  I will copy you on my request to the Judge.
 .
If you will please review the evaluations and recommendations for treatment since 2012 from Dr’s DeGoede, Kang, Ponton, Chung, Patterson, Ikeda, Llowell, O’Brien, Kent, Zardouz et al….. you will see the gross mis-management of this case and my ability to recover and return to work, mostly at the hands of Grancell.  I understand that Daniel Elliott, former adjuster may have been inexperienced and therefore subject to intimidation by the Grancell crowd.  I talked with his boss once, very polite, and also did not sound intimidatable.  Ms. Mall’s incorrect statements to multiple doctors were leading, misleading and resulted in what appear to be extremely fraudulent conclusions by 3 doctors, and the whole CorVel people. Sad. Makes CNA appear complict, doesn’t it?
 .
With your experience, I highly doubt you can be intimated by them.  I trust that you will continue to help me distance from the abuse,harassment, intimdiation, bullying and the implied threats of the defense crowd.
 .
Please advise how soon I may expect the advance on estimated PD.
 .
Thank you.
Sincerely,
 .

Dr. Hilda Chalgujian, Primary Treating Doctor since Orthopedic Surgeon made it very clear he doesn’t deal with brains….. a fact known when Grancell and WCAB insisted that my PTP be an Orthopedic Surgeon, not a physiatrist, neuro-psychologist, neurologist, psychologist, chiropractor, or accupuncturist.  Looks like it’s on you, me, Dr. Hilda and Stewart to move things along…with Tina and Mike.   What say you now?  I hope the ProPublic / NPR Surveys and articles are helpful; I submitted my stories to them and to OSHA.

PS:  An updated medical miles request is still forthcoming.  With TBI, sense of time is surreal, at best.   I have also learned, something your Training Department may be interested in, with TBI, when treatment is immediate and swift (interdisciplinary, including speech, occupational, physical therapies, and vision and auditory therapies as required, along with orthopedic issues with chiropractors and accupuncture, return to work further facilitates best outcomes.
 .
Unfortunately, I also learned that when an injured worker is prevented from return to work for more than 2-3 years, best outcomes are highly improbable.  Thanks.  Don’t let it happen again; I will work with Wyndham to ensure that it doesn’t happen to another Wyndham Employee, and with the injured worker community at large.  It would be nice to tell global audiences that CNA saw their egregious errors and have used this case to correct the wrongs; I realize that is highly improbable, so another route will be created, just like I must work on creating ‘new neuropathways’ to do things that used to be easy, that are now very very challenging.
 .
I am hoping Wyndham will create a position for me so that I can help clean up the Human Resources issues that have allowed your companies to harm me so, at great cost to me, and cost to shareholders and Wyndham, as well.

Medical treatments and experiments for prison injuries vs. work injuries are different how?   Does anybody recall the details of 20th Century Doctor Trials?  

The only known ‘defense’ strategies… DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATH:

For those who cannot or will not read and think, here is a short video that may help with comprehension:

Independent Medical Examination Agenda – YouTube

► 3:55  http://www.wwolaw.net Hulett learns the real purpose of so called “Independent Medical Examinations.”

Not saying all doctors in WorkComp are horrible creatures; many have left the industry for private practice.  It is said that some have ‘retired into’ WorkComp evaluations.  

.

Better guidelines for QME/AME designations, along with ethics requirements and recordings of evaluations of all injured workers for at least the next ten years must be considered in order to save lives and indict criminals.  Let’s have fresh trials, and stop history from repeating itself in America.

When doctors are not held accountable for false reports that cause harm and death,  written for profit and with intention to deny medical care and worse, something’s rotten in the system. When doctors can willfully change dates of injuries in order to use earlier medical reports to falsely substantiate ‘pre-existing’ conditions, something’s rotten in the system.  When the System itself allows for ‘secret reports’ and hefty payments to doctors who can’t even get a date of injury straight, something is rotten in the system.

Doctors Trial

Does anybody have hard stats on WorkComp in America?  At the recent #WorkCompCentral #CompLaude Gala, it was mentioned, if memory serves sufficiently, that approximately 15% of injured workers in America are unrepresented..

  • If that math is correct, that’s about 8 million — UNREPRESENTED INJURED WORKERS.  
  • It does not count the ‘poorly represented’ injured workers!  WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR THAT MARKET SEGMENT?

Could ‘On-Time Records’ help America’s Injured Workers?  What can YOU do?

. recently article indicated that the UK offers Corporations tax breaks for providing medically necessary treatments to injured/disabled workers in order to facilitate return to work? http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/news/2015/january/returning-work-online-media-project  http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/news/2015/january/fit-work-guidance-employers  http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/printmail/1702

Wow, that’s the direct opposite of USA treatment of disabled and injured workers, huh?

.

Insurance companies here are paid big bonuses for refusing to pay disability benefits, provide medically necessary treatments, and they seem to use any means necessary to shift cost burdens to State and Federal Agencies, before people enter the ranks of homelessness and incarceration.  Same insurance companies are on a 3-D plan, DELAY, DENY, DECEIVE, approved by volumes of useless laws?  Employers can willfully refuse to engage in interactive process for return to work discussions…FOR YEARS!!!  d’OH!  Without consequences? Hmph.

.

Apparently, there are ‘Tea Parties’ and ‘Tea Parties’ and “Tempests in Teapots?”

Often, #InjuredWorkers make poor choices in retaining legal counsel, and many have retained 2 or more, leaving them defenseless, since incompetence in the legal fields allows dismissed counsel to place a lien on the WorkComp claim, rendering it useless (i.e. unprofitable) to further counsel.

.

If 15% of the InjuredWorkers in America are currently unrepresented, 15% of 54 million is 8,100,000 at any given time.  Many of those InjuredWorkers are too sick or medicated to fight the good fight, and many will simply join the ranks of the homeless and prison population and cemetaries.

WHAT SERVICES DOES YOUR WORK COMP FIRM OFFER TO UNREPRESENTED WORKERS, IN PRO PER?  

Occupy media coverage

Does YOUR STAFF understand the rights of flag-waving InjuredWorkers, In Pro Per, or is your staff increasing risk of malpractice complaints against your teams?

This case has several instances of WorkComp provider staff telling this injured worker that they can only take directions, requests, medical records, complaints and correction directly from the Defense Counsel, or adjuster, if unrepresented. The perjured Proof of Services and responses to proofs of services are another issue that causes egregious harm.

Really?  How interesting.  Does the ACLU agree with that interpretation of Civil Rights and Labor Codes?  Does the DOJ agree?

When one thing doesn’t work, we do something else. America’s WorkComp system is failing America miserably. SuperLawyers indicate that this story is NOT UNCOMMON.

too big

What IS uncommon is that this InjuredWorker is fighting back, by any and every means necessary. If it takes 21st Century “Doctor Trials”…. let the Tribunals begin!

Is there a Lawyer’s Den that will help the American people with class action suits against the perpetrators, all of them.

Medical treatment, disability benefits, and reimbursement of medically necessary expenses have been denied (approximately $30K unreimbursed expenses to date, and rising) since date of injury, January 9, 2012.

Wyndham Worldwide’s #WorkComp carrier and legal firm have repeatedly interfered with and caused failures to provide medically necessary treatment since date of injury. The bullying, chicanery and worse are documented in the blog posts; draw your own conclusions.

ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS

https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/

One unfortunate circumstance, a witnessed slip and fall backwards on ice at the WorldMark by Wyndham Big Bear resort, has been compounded by a series of increasingly harmful circumstances, with callous disregard for my life.

The past three years have been filled with legal, medical, financial torture and abuse and patterns of continuous harm, without any Corporate intervention or responsibility, despite repeated pleas for help by this brain injured worker.

Keyboards and Maxine

Adult Protective Services offered some help, as well as a local CRISIS Center. Shame on Wyndham, CNA, and Grancell… and the doctors complicit in failures to provide immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care, in compliance with California Labor Codes and the Constitution of the United States of America.

DUTY TO ACT

The loss of cognitive abilities is unfathomable to anybody but another TBI Survivor.  TBI is called an INVISIBLE DISABILITY.

WorkComp doctor, in 2013, suggested that because I am over 35, female and disabled, I am not entitled to any medical treatments since it was not provided in the first two years either. Several QME/AME doctors might find themselves in Nuremberg type trials in America sooner rather than later.

brain concussion tbi

The fraud and following of orders of defense firms is straight out of a bad movie, from changing dates of injury to use prior year medical records to allege ‘pre-existing’ injuries, to simply writing what a defense attorney asks them to write, to ‘secret submission’ asking doctor to review but not summarize medical records, in true SS fashion, and in full violation of CA Constitution Article XIV and the US Constitution in entirety.

Where is the ACLU and the National Lawyer’s Guild and the “LawyersDen” when it comes to experimentation and exterminations of injured and disabled people? More importantly, WHERE ARE THE DISTRICT ATTORNEYS AND WHERE IS THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND HOMELAND SECURITY???

Defense firm asks why I believe I am entitled to any medical care or disability benefits. The insurance carrier, after calling and listening to whining about denied medical care, asked, “…when ARE you going to die?”

InjuredWorker Rages Against the System on Video:

http://www.drjaudy.com/patient-testimonials/linda-a-testimonial/

WorkComp is a mega billion dollar industry. Timeshare/Hospitality is also a mega billion dollar industry, therefore;

WHY MUST INJURED WORKERS IN AMERICA FACE HEALTH LOSS, UTILITY CUT-OFF, REPOSSESSIONS, FORECLOSURES AND PREMATURE DEATH SO THAT SOMEONE LIKE THOMAS MOTAMED, CEO OF CNA CAN MAKE MORE THAN $10.7 MILLION A YEAR???

Who else makes the big bucks, and has conferences in some of the nation’s fanciest joints, and has drinks after a little education and pondering the state of dying injured workers and diminishing profits for some, and opines about the plight of the po’ injured workers of AMERICA? Average salary in WorkComp is probably close to $100K? Those commissioned insurance reps and structured settlement peeps are probably in the $250-$500K ranges?  What are the ‘bonuses” based on? Kill rates?

This blog, ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS, is an example of what can happen when a corporation has a policy of …

.

Don’t call 9-11, don’t drive a head-injured worker to a hospital or emergency room, have a good laugh at the fall in a sales meeting, encourage completing work shift then driving 20 miles down an icy-mountain road then 40 more miles of desert 2-lane road to get to “go to any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and provides an incomplete DWC-1 form (no insurance carrier info; then emails later with a list of providers that no longer accept work comp insurance and demands to cease seeing the doctor seen on date of injury; defense firm later insists said action is “proper service” of an alleged ‘MPN’), no-get-well-wishes, no follow up, erroneous info, reliance on EAP to facilitate first doctors (shifting burden to health insurance vs work comp carrier) (then adjuster has extensive phone conversation with EAP designated doctor regarding severity of injuries and shortly thereafter terminates benefits, stiffing said doctor for 4 appointment payments also),  no intervention to help an injured worker for nearly 3 years, no participation in FEHA interactive process, no apparent return to work program–with or without ADA accommodations, “the silent treatment” if pro-active nearly destitute injured worker is the only attendee at a corporate public JOB FAIR in an attempt to facilitate “RTW,”

Further policies appear to include introduction of injured worker to the State Welfare Systems and the generosity of charitable organizations such as THE SALVATION ARMY because of failures to provide medically necessary treatment for ‘going on 3 years’ and refusing to pay disability benefits, causing loss of professional credentials and complicating work injuries because of failures to provide immediate, reasonable and necessary medical care and shifting all burdens of the WorkComp policy benefits to others….

Defense firm attempted to coerce first year premature Settlement, without repeatedly requested brain injury evaluations and treatments,  for $100k less attorney fees, that required full release of all liability, it required resignation from job, forfeiture of any/all State disability/Medicare benefits for “3 years” with callous disregard for life itself.  File appears to have been churned churned churned repeatedly.  Injured worker is out of pocket nearly $30,000, for self-procuring physician requested treatments and evaluations that the insurance carrier or and defense firm denied repeatedly until the new law, when the buck could be further passed on ‘non-recommendations’ for treatment by non-brain injury experts.

District Attorney indicated the complaints “have merit”….but that was quite a while ago.  EEOC asked why the brain-injured worker waited so long to complain.  One lawyer, after repeated attempts to find competent legal representation, after file review, concluded with the question, “So why did you wait more than 2 years for medical care for a brain injury?”  D’oh!

IF THAT’S WORK COMP, WE, THE INJURED WORKERS SAY…. NO THANKS TO THOSE WHO PLACE “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES”

.

Earlier in 2014, the State Adult Protective Services intervened in response to complaints of financial terrorism compounding the failures to provide medical treatment for, at that time, over two years.

Ask About Brain Injuries and “Perseveration” of pen, words, thoughts and neuro-misfirings; for those in #WorkComp who do not know, the “brain” is a body part located in the head region.  A witnessed slip and fall “backwards” on ice only has the “skull” to break the fall; see illustration:

  1. Remember about PIMM patsies. Forget about BS of “establishing trust”. The first thing PIMM destroys is trust and you need to be aware that he tries to entice your weaker colleagues to spy on you. In such environment a weaker personalities often adopts the role of patsy as a self-protection mechanism and might even comply and even try to provoke you to “frank talk” that will be reported to PIMM. The environment PIMM creates is characterized by old Latin quote “Homo homini lupus est” ( Man is a wolf to his fellow-man.) They build up a power base and because they are paranoid, they turn all subordinates into paranoia wrecks: everyone becomes afraid of everyone else and the work culture begins to reflect the personality of the leader. Team soon became resemble a pack of frightened dogs.   See more here: http://www.softpanorama.org/Social/Toxic_managers/Communication/rules_of_verbal_self_defense.shtml

    What Is the ABI Program?

    Coastline’s ABI Program is a demanding one-year educational program designed to provide structured cognitive retraining for adults who have sustained a brain injury due to traumatic (such as a motor vehicle accident or fall) or non-traumatic (such as a non-age-related stroke, brain tumor or infection) injuries.

    Each year, according to the Brain Injury Association, more than 700,000 Americans sustain brain damage from traumatic head injuries alone. Most are between the ages of 15 and 30 – young, active, involved individuals, suddenly and unexpectedly disabled.

    In many cases, impaired attention and concentration, memory disturbances, language disabilities, and/or loss of reasoning skills prevent these individuals from resuming even minimal pre-accident activities. Awareness of limitations and shattered career and personal goals lead to frustration and depression, further contributing to the individual’s unemployment, isolation and alienation from friends, family and community.

    Coastline’s ABI Program has developed a unique curriculum to address these special needs. The ABI Program emphasizes cognitive retraining, socialization, and career development to promote individual responsibility and independence. Students in the program learn strategies to compensate for deficits in:

    • Verbal skills
    • Memory
    • Figural skills
    • Critical thinking
    • Attention
    • Organization

    With a strong focus on emotional adjustment to brain injury and appropriate psycho-social skills, the program teaches students to apply these skills to practical, real-life home and work environments.

    Coastline’s ABI Program also offers the following program support services:

    • Neuroeducational Assessment
    • Counseling for students and their families
    • “Future Planning Development” (whether for employment, training, or volunteering).

    Classes meet Monday through Thursday, four hours per day. The school year includes two 16-week semesters and a five week summer session.
    Classes are held at Coastline’s Newport Beach Center, 1515 Monrovia, Newport Beach, CA 92663.

    If my case ever settles, I will ask the Judge to ensure that the 4 law firms who took on my case [#1-30 days, #2-9 months, #3-90 days, #4-45 days (duration times are approximate)]….clearly without any knowledge of handling a Brain Injury Case, did cause further egregious harm and any with liens should be provided with an equal share of 15% of the NOTHING THEY PRODUCED.  Sanctions would be appropriate, but not likely.

    The Judge, with Structured Settlement recommendations, will also be asked to designate the actual “15% legal fees’ to be given to the Coastline ABI Foundation, in lump sum or settlement arrangement.
    world is a dangerous place
    The Judge will also be asked that the insurance carrier, that was awarded approximately $16,000 by the State of California in 2014, EDD department, for REFUSAL TO PAY TTD to injured worker in 2012/2013 DONATES A LIKE OR GREATER AMOUNT FROM CORPORATE PROFITS TO COASTLINE ABI.
    Very interesting book keeping practices of all parties.  Wyndham remains silent.
    take care of each other
    Investigations into the practice of using injured worker or State Taxpayer funds to reward insurance companies for breach of fiduciary responsibilities and breach of Labor Codes surely deserves further investigations, even though it appears to be another ‘pattern of practice’ known by all, harming only the injured workers it impacts.
    To the Insurance Company Dude who asked, among other things, “…when ARE you going to die?” in a discussion of refusals to provide medically necessary treatment for nearly 3 years, all I can say is, “Not yet, Dude, not just yet.”
