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….”

U.S. Labor Department: States Are Failing Injured Workers – ProPublica

Oct 5, 2016 – A new Department of Labor report says cuts to state workers’ comp systems have … U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez on Capitol Hill in April.

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)]

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INDUSTRY BLOGS? WHO IS SAYING WHAT?

 

  • Remember Remember the Words of David DePaolo, RIP:
  • The brokerage community has been successful for many years in steering the fraud debate towards the most minuscule part of fraud: injured workers; a segment of the fraud population that is so small that insurance companies comically seek big attention for thwarting a criminal act that typically does not amount to more than $10,000 in damage.

  • Where is the outcry, however, when brokers suck $4 billion out of a system on clever reinsurance chicanery (see our various stories and articles on Unicover) so they can make a half-billion dollars in fees? Why isn’t the Employer’s Fraud Task Force and other self-appointed overseers of malicious intent and do-gooders directing their energies towards identification of the white collar criminals guilty of bid rigging? Where are our district attorneys, whose offices are flush with workers’ compensation fraud fighting money, when clear evidence of outright insurance company misreporting of work comp premium occurs? Is Eliot Spitzer, formerly New York’s Attorney General and now that state’s governor, the only politician who seems to be bothered by large scale white collar crime?

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE INDUSTRY BLOGS?   WHO IS SAYING WHAT TODAY?

The Ignorant Aging

“It is also this particular demographic that is ill prepared to NOT work – the baby boomer generation still lives pay check to pay check; in other words they MUST work…”

“Yet, AARP (nor most other organizations) does absolutely no education to their constituents and members about work place injuries, about workers’ compensation or how the system works, leaving this demographic especially vulnerable to surprise, or worse, abuse.”

“I guess this isn’t really a surprise. Nearly no one educates the working population about workers’ compensation, or any work injury program, until it’s too late, after an injury occurs (or is claimed).”
