WorkComp Gravy Trains? What’s a Gravy Train??

What’s a “gravy train?” Ask Siri!

WC SHELL GAME TIMES HOW MANY INJURED WORKERS

A young banker today asked ‘what’s a gravy train?’ giving way to discussion and points to ponder with his colleagues.

It was suggested that he immediately check with his Human Resources Department for details on the WorkComp policies and practices of his major bank.  He knew well about the needs to begin retirement planning early, but admittedly never thought about a work place injury.   He was encouraged to do more research, and discuss it with his friends and neighbors.  A work place injury can be very career path and life-disrupting to an injured worker, and quite the gravy train for what some call “21st Century Sonderkommando”  — Yes, Ask Siri!

How many people in the industry know cases that are more than 20 years old?  What torture and abuses occur during such a time span??   How many dollars are laundered over the course, over how many unclean hands? Recently an industry article about California talked about Sedgwick again, caught offending again, shrugged, paid a few million and said they would monitor better (paraphrased.) Here’s the link:

Sedgwick pays $1.13 million to settle California comp violations

http://www.businessinsurance.com/article/20160107/NEWS08/160109877/sedgwick-pays-1-13-million-to-settle-california-comp-violations

FOLLOW THAT MONEY TRAIL! 

Another recent article talked about how Sedgwick takes the best financial care of it’s employees….. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?  Put on your cognitive thinking skills cap! YIKES!

If there was ever a time for class action, Sedgwick even looks like it might be in a position to clean up old cases and make them right.  I will reach out to them directly and see if they will set up a hotline to take calls from long lost and botched cases, and I will contact media as well.  You in or out?

WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHERE IS THE CAAA HOTLINE FOR OTHER SEDGWICK SIMILARLY ABUSED INJURED WORKERS TO RALLY IN CLASS ACTION?  IF I GET ONE MORE CALL FROM ONE MORE INJURED WORKER OF THE SEDGWICK VARIETY CRYING ABOUT 20 OR SO YEARS OF ABUSE, BOTCHED SURGERIES, DENIED MEDICAL CARE, AND DEMANDS FOR WEANING OFF OPIATES WHILE THE CAUSES OF THE NEED FOR PAIN TREATMENT SUCH AS FOREIGN OBJECTS LEFT BEHIND IN BOTCHED SURGERIES,

WE MAY HAVE TO DEVOTE A SPECIAL SERIES TO SEDGWICK although they seem to represent the new normals, don’t they?

WE ALREADY KNOW THE NEED TO #Blog4TheCure – Romano Syndrome incited by the practices of this insurance carrier, which seems to have set the industry standard, huh?

Perhaps Darrell Brown and Kimberly George, both influencers at Sedgwick, will establish a direct HOT LINE for Injured Parties to reach out, whether or not they are represented.  Perhaps they will establish a second HOT LINE for attorneys of old Sedgwick cases to reach out.  Perhaps they will line up a HOT LINE for national, third-party MEDIATORS to get these cases to resolution, allowing the remaining days of injured workers to be without the terrors and pain and abuses that only workcomp can freely incite, without fear or caution, on the working classes.

Most applicant attorneys shamefully would apparently rather see an injured worker die than share case proceeds with someone who can get the job done —medical care and resolution — and imho, such parties should not profit for inability to protect their clients, and certainly should not stand in the way of resolution.  My opinions on that crowd have never been …. sugar-coated.   20 years, c’mon!

Then, if PRO-ACTIVE HOTLINES happen, maybe investigative reporters can write something nice about work comp one of these days, instead of digging to find a story of someone who did something right once in workcomp.  Corrective actions can then begin to embrace Social Security Disabilities and improprieties, that little cost shifting maneuver with many sticky little fingers all over it?  All these things may, in the end, require hands-on Congressional interventions.  What about Return to Work?  What a concept, post-medical treatment?

There is lots of room for improvement and it doesn’t include ‘rising medical costs’ and from an accounting perspective, MEDICAL EVALUATIONS UPON EVALUATIONS UPON EVALUATIONS do not constitute medical care.  Separate actual care from collusion to deny medical care, and the industry may find medical care costs are insanely low, to practically non-existent.  Ask any injured worker, represented or not.

LET THE NATIONAL CONVERSATIONS BEGIN.  ProPublica started the conversations with the series, Insult to Injury – The Demolition of Workers Compensation.  Let’s keep the conversations going and ignite some new ones!  YOUR LIFE COULD BE AT STAKE, TOO.   

Obviously, applicant attorneys in every state are befuddled, puzzled, baffled and perplexed on how to protect injured parties.  Perhaps Congress can be encouraged to encourage immediate establishment of a HOT LINE FOR AMERICA’S INJURED WORKERS SEEKING RESOLUTIONS, MEDICAL CARE, AND BASIC CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS.   WE CAN HOPE.   LET’S OPEN UP SOME HOT LINES, AND CONTINUE TO #Blog4TheWorkCompCure!

 

WHAT’S A GRAVY TRAIN?

Young, middle aged and old people are also urged by MyWorkCompCoach.com to check with their Human Resources Dept today to get the names of their WorkComp and Disability insurance carriers. Anytime you consider a new j-o-b, be sure to ask about the Workers Compensation carrier, practices and how many injured workers, statistically, ever return to work with their original employer, and at all?  You might also inquire about the average duration of the company’s ‘typical’ work comp case, and if HR and management has any particular training in handling 911-emergency calls and workplace injuries.  Particularly ask if they are forbidden from calling 911 or extending get well wishes! That may be telling!

too big

Research them. Don’t wait till you’re hurt at work. At that point you have lost most all civil and human rights.

Without this info your career path can be derailed into oblivion and your life severely shortened!

Start Career, Retirement and Accidental #Work Injuries planning now! Failures can cost you your health, life savings, home, career path, and your life!

Ask any 40-somethings who have been fighting #WorkComp since theirs 20s and 30s….and can’t find competent legal representation or resolution to botched surgeries and more. Ask any 60-somethings about it!

HE WHO KNOWS

You could be next! BE PREPARED! Ask better questions! Join the national conversation on Worker’s Comp atrocities, demolition and transformations! SURVIVE!

“If I was an injured worker at home wondering how I would pay my bills, I would be sick to see this,” said one insurance company manager who asked not to be named…”

“A top manager for a major insurance company recalled standing amid the hoopla a few years back when a company CEO turned to her and marveled: “All of this because somebody got hurt at work.”

“This year, there were conferences in 104 cities in 41 states — more places than in the country song, “I’ve Been Everywhere.” One hotel, the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, hosted three workers’ comp conferences in 2015…”

“Highlighting the bounty, there are now more than 150 workers’ comp conferences a year. There’s one for the American Society of Workers Comp Professionals, one for the Association of Workers’ Compensation Professionals and one for the Association of Workers’ Compensation Claims Professionals. At least 26 have golf tournaments.”

At the national workers’ comp and disability expo, vendors gave away Apple watches, bottles of bourbon, and a Vespa scooter. There were free massages and shoeshines, a superhero caricature artist, more than one mentalist, and a live alligator named Spike.

“But over the past two decades, a cottage industry of middlemen has emerged, which some have dubbed the “workers’ comp industrial complex.”

AN INJURED WORKER COMMENTS:

Some people can work 45-50 years without knowing a thing about WorkComp….Count me amongst the ‘madder than hell’ members of the Working Class, disabled by WC!  Do you see what injured workers see?!!!

IE: One icy slip and fall backwards on ice and boom….there went another life. Did you see “Concussion”?  Football players are yes, Injured Workers!  How about the soldiers returning from Central Asia with brain injuries, radiation poisoning and missing limbs?  Do we have your attention yet, Americans?

Labor Secretaray Tom Perez Civil Rights

Let’s open the doors of all the fancy conferences to the Injured Worker Community…. perhaps a part of the admission…. BRING AN INJURED WORKER to listen to the panels, and walk the exhibit halls and collect data and meet real people,  and yes, break bread with the folks profiting  ‘Because someone got hurt at work.’

Include panels of Injured Workers at every event…you’ll realize then that we are not numbers…we are human beings, being destroyed for the profits of the few.  You could be next.

OccupyVirtuall! 99%
OccupyVirtually! 99%

#OccupyVirtually…. save the expense and use it for medical care to actually treat injured workers, vs evaluations upon evaluations to deny medical care.

Heck, invite local politicians, or members of their field staffs to see first hand what’s really happening in WorkComp industries to their constituents.

Critical in California, and everywhere else!  Be sure to include reps from EDD and SSA… Involve the LTD carriers, too.  Bring all those who profit ‘because somebody got injured at work.’

Invite the Salvation Army to share how they help Injured Workers when the WC system is an Epic Fail.  Who else helps injured workers survive the system?  Legal Aid?  Houses of Worship?

C’mon America!  Lives are being destroyed.  We do not have the right to remain silent. ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”….  Simple and Easy:  1. Demolition  2. Trials and Consequences 3. Rebuilt on legit foundations …. nice and legal and American-like.  Ditch the secret tribunal type practices immediately.

Demolition of Workers' Comp

If there’s no solution, demand complete and immediate DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION and necessary trials.  Remember, there are now 11 Congressional representatives on record as being concerned and alarmed about WorkComp in America…. and one is even expressly concerned about Injured Nuclear Workers!  Pssssst, #DodgeTheRads!  It’s dangerous out there, America!  (That’s a matter for more Congressional Investigations, wouldn’t you agree?)

Draw the line at involving IW’s in the post-daily-event drink-a-thons. Opiates and alcohol are not a good combo, and most IW’s are seriously drugged as part of ‘treatment’ to keep noise levels down?

[Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup of The Soul fame says 2016 will be all about ‘SOBER IS SEXY’ and has apparently written a book to show you how to be it in 30 days! ”

In 2016, Sober will be the New Successful

Jack (Canfield, not Daniels!) says: “What’s more, those generalized “aches and pains” start lessening, as does that sense of feeling lousy. “Brain fog” significantly decreases, helping you make better, more forward-thinking decisions. “- See more at: http://jackcanfield.com/in-2016-sober-will-be-the-new-successful/

ONE DAY AT A TIME, PEEPS…. God, grants us the Serenity to Accept the Things We Cannot Change, The Courage to Change Those Things We Can, and the WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.  Remember remember: “God gave you a brain to use.”   THINK THINK THINK ]

All others, check out www.aa.org  or look for “Friends of Bill W” sessions at your conferences…..  surely there are some sober people attending! Find them!

Invite panels of Injured Workers to speak on the true atrocities of this highly profitable industry, which destroys the lives of all but the least injured workers.  Remember remember… today’s able bodied worker is at risk of becoming tomorrow’s injured worker….and another casualty of the system.

What we need are greater numbers of InjuredWorker bloggers, so you, too, can know the truth.  Let’s aim to see “Injured Workers Associations”  in EVERY STATE IN THE UNION….

    Teddy Snyder on LinkedInFor President George W. Bush and Congress to get Medicare Part D drug coverage passed in 2003, they had to make significant concessions to big business…

WC SHELL GAME TIMES HOW MANY INJURED WORKERSLinda’s Comment:

Indeed, “…now would seem to be the time for their lobbyists to twist some arms to modify the noninterference provision for the benefit of all Americans.” on more levels than one! Thanks Teddy! “The increased use and rising cost of pharmaceuticals has torpedoed many a proposed workers compensation buy-out.”….

* * * ” “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!”

The dots all connect, don’t they?

Do all the “Medicare Part D” providers ask the same question before quoting a policy price? When I called AARP a few months ago, apparently for United Health Care, the first question asked me to confirm that I don’t have “renal failure” –I have a brain injury.

I said something like, ‘Ok,, so no, no renal failure, I’m pissed off about Workcompsters and how they are profiting by making so many people permanently disabled and prematurely dead, but thank you, my kidneys are working just fine today, How much is the Part D deal?’…. (It was a “today” purchase, with penalties if I didn’t decide on drugs right away.)

HOWEVER, that caused me to wonder what are the popular drugs peddled by the Big Pharma groups that CAUSE renal failure; I have lost a few friends who were on the ‘drug and kill ’em’ plans…

Well, the Robert Weinmann, M.D. report caught my attention a bit ago, and as I read, I became even more horrified for Workers in California – injured and able bodied. Here, do your own research; draw your own conclusions. Keep it simple. FOLLOW THE MONEY! Read on: https://lnkd.in/bJQAXkk

  • Linda Ayres
  • Robert Weinmann, M.D.…wondering if you, Dr. Weinmann, would be willing to reach out to Attorney Chris Asvar for an opinion to include your blog? Chris is probably the most knowledgeable California attorney regarding brain injury, Worker’s Compensation, and the criminal corruption involved in harming injured workers that is par for the course in California, and across the nation. I stayed up last night well past my bedtime sharing your blog across social media. Now is the time for all people of goodwill to come to the aid of broken humanity. The people of America must realize that everything Hitler did was “legal” –until Nürnberg. It is time for trials again, this time, to include all complicit parties. If not now, then when? Worker’s Compensation is a mega billion-dollar industry. It is not broken. Ms. Baker may simply be just following orders. David DePaolo, Michael Grabell, Howard Berkes and others willl surely shine more light on this devastating and move taking place now. I will also blog and post further, but the industry likes to discount and minimize truths told by victims/survivors of work comp atrocities.I also commented on a post by Jerry Brown about @JeanFuller, so they know about this now too.THANK YOU!!!!!!🌸

“As part of our ongoing investigation, we invite you to tell us about your experience navigating the workers’ comp system. Have something we should look into?”

Share Your Story

# # #

ONE ANSWER:  “If you mean the reports by ProPublica and OSHA, you’ll have to ask them. I think these are done periodically to see what is going on with workers’ comp.”

“OSHA has federal dollars behind it, and ProPublica probably has to raise funds or has endowments that allow it to operate.”

Light research:

“This story was reported in partnership between NPR News Investigation’s Howard Berkes and Michael Grabell of ProPublica, an investigative journalism organization.”

 # # #

“A few hours after ProPublica and NPR issued the first in a series of reports about workers’ compensation “reforms” sweeping the country, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration coincidentally released a paper linking workplace injuries to income inequality.”

“The OSHA paper and ProPublica/NPR stories come to similar conclusions about how some injured workers have been affected by a decade of changes in workers’ compensation laws, including cutbacks in benefits and more difficulty in getting benefits.”

  # # #

Well, I filled out both surveys, and will keep you posted if anybody gets in touch….or if it’s just a black-hole for collection and round up…

Blogging and Vlogging are other ways we can tell our stories…. Here’s a video from 2012, after some excellent ‘functional neurology’ treatments in Palm Desert, California. Of course, the defense firm threatened the doctor and told him to stop treating me, and continued to refuse to provide any medical care for the first 2.5 years, finally got some speech therapy, vision therapy, and occupational therapy via work comp for a few days, when months were requested…. For you info…. document your stories….. we’re all fighting for our lives, and those who follow…. Carry on!

Acupuncture has also been extremely helpful since August 2013, along with neuro-vision prism lenses and therapies, no thanks to the insurance carrier.
