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.

Study the video you can find on YouTube called DEFENSE AGAINST THE PSYCHOPATH.   It’s a documentary.  It will give you clues to survival.Today, you don’t have that privilege unless you want to go out as martyr, due to the radiation levels in our Country, too!
.
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?

WHAT ABOUT “JUSTNESS”  Ask Kimberly Motley, Esq?  Her TedTalk on “How I defend the rule of law” is stellar!  It has almost a million views!

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?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

TIPS
#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.

See comments by Master Sgt. Steckman, a fellow ABI Survivor at Coastline and cast your vote at the DoD link:   https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/2015/05/29/military-or-civilian-got-tbi-imagine-a-3-app-to-help-brain-injury-survivors/  

#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

 wpid-20150526_184942.jpg

#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….’
