Workers’ Compensation SOBs and Global WOE from Australia Canada and USA

WORKERS’ Compensation is a HUGE PROBLEM in USA, Canada, UK, Australia & beyond.. The Australians are somewhat organized…. Canadian are vocal…. Americans……not so much.

So many sad, SOB stories in Workers Compensation, that non-injured people so often fail to believe, huh?

Well, as you know, WITHOUT A BLOG AND A GROWING DATABASE, INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED. UNPROTECTED AND SOL  IN THE GLOBAL WAR ON WORKERS.

It’s time for Injured Workers Uniting – Silent No More because SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH WORKERS’ COMPENSATION, ISN’T IT?

INSULT TO INJURY WAS JUST THE BEGINNING

Here’s one group in Australia, INJURED WORKERS SUPPORT NETWORK AUSTRALIA,

What is the Injured Workers Support Network? Your Questions Answered

This week the main question asked was “What is the Injured Workers Support Network?”

 

IW AUSTRALIAN NETWORK STORIES 8 6 2016



WE NEED GROUPS LIKE THIS EVERYWHERE, SO IT WOULD SEEM TO ME, IN EVERY COUNTRY AND EACH OF THOSE COUNTRIES WITH WORKERS THEN MUST CONNECT WITH THE OTHERS. THE INTERNET MAKES IT POSSIBLE.  Maybe something like this:

 

IDWA-USA Injured Disabled Workers Associations – USA

ABOUT THIS GROUP

IDWA-USA Injured Disabled Workers Associations – USA is an idea whose time has come.  Join in the vision of INJURED DISABLED WORKERS ASSOCIATIONS across the USA to include every State, and around the globe

Coming soon, something like:

IDWA-AU Injured Disabled Workers Associations – Australia

IDWA – CANADA – Injured Disabled Workers Associations – Canada

IDWA – Injured Disabled Workers Association – UK

IDWA – Injured Disabled Workers Association – Singapore




Joining in creating a global effort… one group, one page, one post, one blog, one email, one phone call, one action at a time…

Any time, anywhere and Injured Worker reaches out for help, I want the hand of IDWA to be there, and for that, I am responsible.

 

Here’s the Australia website…. INJURED WORKERS SUPPORT NETWORK AUSTRALIA http://www.injuredworkerssupport.org.au/

Contact info is at the end of the brief video… I’ll do what I can to reach out to Rowmen. Perhaps you will, too?

They even invite Injured Worker stories, and probably don’t have nasty ol’ trolls trying to stop them from helping, by threatening “legal action.”

# # #

Sidebar: The editor I thought would be able to help ME get YOUR stories properly edited and formatted and ready for ebook didn’t work out. I think the topic of what’s happening is too harsh.  “Next!”     We may just put it together and e-publish on Create Space and call it ” SURVIVING WORKERS COMPENSATION – Draft 1″  😀

cognitive dissonance

NOBODY WANTS TO BELIEVE THIS KRAP HAPPENS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY….. UNDERSTAND THAT, AND CONDUCT YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY.

# # #

In the USA we have NAIDW.org – a great online resource. Give Jon A. Arbay a shout-out and see if they need any volunteers to help with anything and everything… Maybe Jon will address this group in a FB Note or blog and tell us how we can support them supporting American Injured Workers.

Here’s their FB page:
https://www.facebook.com/naidw/ 😀

I think he’s still here in this group too, unless we ran him off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who will find out about a similar group in Canada and bring the info back to this group?

On FB there is Injured Workers Fighting WSIB but it says it’s a ‘government organization’… ?? https://www.facebook.com/ONIWGNETWORK/

Here is their Google+ site on WSIB Corruption? https://plus.google.com/communities/107513170697707197393

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are a part of these organizations, please check with your members and bring a post here to this group, identify what sort of help you need, and we’ll see what we can do.

I reached out to some other virtual groups recently; we’ll see how they respond… I’m pretty hopeful that once they grasp the atrocities being committed, they will want to lend a hand.

If any of you have made any progress with establishing your own blog, let me know. Send me the link with WORKCOMP BLOG somewhere in the subject line at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com and start building your email list.

We need “units of service in every state—people to people.” I would imagine the same is required in Canada… province to province?

FB is not enough….

In USA, Injured Workers did not fight against a known industry Workers’ Compensation propaganda blitz that was told about in February, and launched in May, publicly, on their blogs.

If you don’t follow industry blogs, and don’t have your own blog, well, you know the ol’ saying… WITHOUT A BLOG….. INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED AND UNPROTECTED AND SOL.

IDEAS??!?!

Anybody there with an interest in saving lives from the WorkComp extermination machinery with some extra blogging etc…#OccupyVirtually….. as if lives depend on it??

There is one active Injured Worker blogger in the USA, to the best of my knowledge. The US Work Comp industry has 22 bloggers shaping public opinion with massive amounts of disinformation.

There are a handful of Injured Worker’s with Facebook pages and groups. A couple posters on LinkedIn. Any other BLOGGERS you have discovered?

My 2 WorkComp blogs:

AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com/list-of-posts/ since 2013

MyWorkCompCoach.com

 

I am working on assembling some anonymous injured worker stories (for the protection of the injured workers from retaliation) and I’m working on creating an eCourse to illustrate how to escape the system and regain/reclaim civil and human rights.

Too many injured Workers our “dying on their knees”

The Australians in the above video seem to have a model that works. Any thoughts?

MESSAGE me or mail at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com if you have ideas to share? Thanks! Linda

PS. #DodgeTheRads! It’s dangerous out there!

ps What do RADS have to do with Workers’ Compensation, you may opine??!!  Think about compromised immune systems, for starters.  Google search YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK.  Take all necessary precautions.   After Fukushima triple nuclear meltdowns in March 2011, many Australians believed the nuclear industry propaganda that they were ‘safe’ in the Southern Hemisphere… that was partially true…for a few weeks.  That was a long time ago, and the internet has been seriously ‘scrubbed’ so you don’t have to fret too much about those harsh realities either.  Just sayin…

CESIUM-137 ATTACKS THE HEART – HOW’S YOUR TICKER TODAY?

How many injured workers are blogging now?  How many have written books?   How many have a huge social media presence?   How many attorneys and providers are blogging?

Did you read Steve Gursten’s blog about IME issues? (LINKS BELOW)  Wow! That firestorm should incite 21st Century Doctor’s Trials! Watch the deposition video! You’ll shake and spit, for sure, if you’re human! Follow THAT money trail.

Dr. Rosalind was paid how much for doing what, saving which insurance carriers how many millions to deny medical care?? Yikes! Typical,huh?  Ask any injured worker, any where.

RE:  Your Email of 2/12/16: National Conference of Insurance “Legislators”. List of Legislators that were specifically on workers comp

 .
Thanks for your email and thanks for asking.
 .
Yes, You may copy me publicly on your email efforts to increase awareness of the need for immediate intervention and change in the National Workers Compensation.  If I can help, I will help.
 .
Those of us working for transformation and saving lives must absolutely be aware of respective efforts, and help where we can.  We “Work Like Antz!”
Remember that industry trolls would divide us, to maintain the silence and oppression and violations of civil and human rights.  They are everywhere.

Feel free to share this blog with your group, and they can take it or leave it.  #Blog4TheWorkCompCure!

The Link to the NCOIL – National Conference of Insurance Legislators … for the states is a interesting site!  It also has links to “related Web Sites” Thank you for sharing it!  Those who have any faith left in the legal systems may be served by writing to each of the named representatives, and to the October 2015 Congressional representatives!
LUCY OCCUPY SAYS EACH ONE WARN ONE THOUSAND
 .
The #WorkCompsters are apparently aiming for a national discussion on work comp matters — closed door and excluding injured workers?
 .
Recent news indicates it will be a secret meeting of a handful of industry influencers, undisclosed location and participants, and may include two ‘injured workers’ and results only will be provided with the public at large.  It seems to be taking place someplace ‘in the Heartland’ (Let’s hope they check Your Radiation This Week for updates on the radiation levels in their city of choice, and that HEPA filters are provided in the meeting room, at the very least! It’s a litigious crowd, they might create a class action for the dangers they are being invited to participate in!)
 .
More on that in coming blogs….those Secret Tribunals have always been questionable throughout history!
political language (2)
Do the 21st Century Sonderkommando ‘come in limousines, not tanks!?’  Will they do a preliminary national poll to include all parties involved and knowlegeable about the horrors of American WorkComp practices, or will they ‘shuck and jive’ amongst themselves, just like they do at those expensive high-end conferences at the best joints in America?  Total cost per attendee is factored in to somebody’s bottom line?   Rooms at what, $300/nite plus per diems?  All they can eat and drink?  With a few panels and chats that could reach more ONLINE?
.
INJURED WORKERS ARE PROHIBITED ALWAYS FROM ALL INDUSTRY EVENTS?   Can’t learn/Can’t teach.  Hmmmmmm.  Talk about segregation and discrimination?   One work comp industry organization actually openly and disdainfully prohibits injured workers of any kind at their events, and allows attendees to bring a guest ONLY if the guest is a SPOUSE?  WOW!  Ain’t that nothing!   Do they do marriage certificate and bed checks, too?
Why is that?   Years ago I worked for an attorney who always said, “PEOPLE WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THE WRONGS THEY HAVE DONE TO YOU!”
DR ROSALIND GRIFFIN JAN 2016

The doctor’s story is common.  The attorney story is HEROIC!   Steve Gursten, Esq.  is an American Hero, and facilitated a win for the First Amendment, and for his truck driving brain injured client. California attorneys could learn a great deal from Steve, and how to truly protect a client, instead of serving them to the insurance industries for a ‘few pieces of silver.’    Maybe Steve should be invited to the Secret Tribunal…. he’s a Michigan PI attorney, obviously not leased/owned by any insurance companies.  The ol’ WorkComp crowd will likely be heavily invested in CYA studies. See more details on IME issues here:

The First Amendment wins in dropped ethics probe over lawyer’s hatchet job tactics blog post! #Blog4TheCure

Will the National Discussion Secret Meeting simply be a polite get-together to suggest that Michael Grabell, Howard Berkes and the teams at NPR and ProPublica were — WRONG?   I’ve read every article in the Demolition of WorkComp series and I have yet to see them seriously straight up address the FRAUD AND CORRUPTION.   Insinuation, yes, but nothing to take to the District Attorneys, yet.  Maybe soon!

Sedgwick pays $1.13 million to settle California comp violations

Will they be discussing the “Lessons Learned By Sedgwick”?   Romano Trust was not enough?   It’s become Romano-Syndrome, hasn’t it?    #Blog4TheCure!  We’ll talk more soon on the Sedgwick Institute and the grants being handed out to long time WorkComp people to keep the merry go round turning?

Maybe a hotline for dying Injured Workers on the rest and wait and wait and opiate program, handled by a third party could be discussed at the Secret Tribunal?

No injured worker under the Sedgwick plan I have been in touch with has any faith whatsoever for any hope for any good faith actions after years and years and years of abuse.  Most have retained more than one attorney, none of whom were able to get reasonable medical care sufficient for return to work, or any other protections.  WHO WILL PROTECT INJURED WORKERS IN AMERICA?!

What do you tell an injured worker who says, “My attorney said he makes so little money on my case, he told me that it doesn’t matter if he returns my calls or not.  When it’s over, he’ll still get the same little bit of money, so he has lots of files and can’t give my case any attention.”  HOW IS THAT ETHICAL OR EVEN HUMANE?  It certainly does not pass any ‘competency’ tests!

mlk hitler germany

When will the attorney groups begin to monitor the horrors they facilitate by such behaviors, and worse?   How about the attorney who says, “Fraud? I haven’t heard that word since law school.  I wouldn’t have a clue how to proceed in exposing that!”   Or the attorney who says, ‘Romano Trust vs. Sedgwick gave the industry the green light to withhold medical care from all injured workers, across America, and risk merely a fine of a maximum of $100,000.  It’s cheaper than medical care in most cases.’

 

How about the Super Lawyers who know about “the issues” that permeate the WorkComp system and shrug and call say “The System Is Broken” ……    Talk about Dodging The Facts!  Sounds complicit to most injured workers!  

How about the attorneys who bank only on ‘high profile cases’?  If that’s the case, it is incumbent on every Injured Worker to CREATE A HIGH PROFILE, BY ANY AND EVERY MEANS NECESSARY.    As Michael Grabell of ProPublica was recently quoted, he said words to the effect that most people don’t give a hoot about WorkComp till they are in the system, and fighting for their life to escape the horrors.  I’ll find the article and post it when I do.

Anybody in the business more than 10 years is surely considered part of the problem? Anybody in the business more than 5 years is surely considered part of the problem.  Heck, ANYBODY IN THE BUSINESS IS SURELY CONSIDERED PART OF THE PROBLEM OF MAIMING AND DISABLING AND YES, KILLING INJURED WORKERS ACROSS AMERICA, FOR PROFITS.   Those who have remained silent, or just left the industry are quite as culpable, wouldn’t you agree?

Will they discuss real issues like fraud, collusion, malpractice?  Will they look at how fake-doctor reports are factored in to the ‘rising medical costs’ in long drawn out WorkComp Cases?  Will they address how paying off an on-the-take doctor to use a bit of slight of hand and deceptions with a touch of plausible deniability to ensure denial of medical care for the $7,000 range, verses necessary immediate medical treatments in the tens of thousands, and life medical in the millions, per case?
FOLLOW THE MONEY. Will they look at the butchery by the “Angels of Death” — Josef Megele-like ‘surgeons’ leased/owned by the WorkComp industries and complications caused by left over foreign objects?

WILL THE NATIONAL SECRET TRIBUNALS DISCUSS THE ISSUES?

Will they discuss the torturous practices of leaving foreign objects behind in a surgery, then cutting off pain meds without corrective surgeries?  Will they look at failures to treat complications after botched surgeries? Will they look at cost-shifting to Welfare and Social Security Disability, and the the trickery of the Long Term Disability Providers and apparent collusion there, also?

#Blog4TheCure – #RomanoSyndrome #WorkComp #WOW

Who else is blogging about work comp


 

Thank you.  For minor injuries, CA Dept of Rehab could and probably does help a few injured workers.

So many California injured workers are denied medical care so long that injuries are exacerbated, causing permanent disabilities and work becomes an impossibility. The Salvation Army is also kind when benefits are illegally interrupted and Injured Workers are left destitute. They can provide temporary assistance with utilities and directions to food banks. Legal Aid can also help unrepresented injured workers to a small degree, with State issues.

CA Dept of Rehab will not help those impacted by #Romano-Syndrome.  Nothing seems to be able to help those impacted by #RomanoSyndrome.




Did you also read about the LA Chemical and Nuclear event in progress in YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK included in the blog? Do you also wonder how many people really grasp THOSE HEALTH DANGERS!

Talk about an IRRADIATED STATE! CA has VERY serious nuclear problems, with it’s nuclear workers and the dangerous to the unsuspecting public. Have you seen this McClathcyDC report?
NUCLEAR WORKERS TOLD TO KEEP MUM
The people in those videos won’t be returning to work!
Many WorkComp survivors can’t get out of bed, and few leave their homes, unless lost by foreclosure! Apparently Congress is looking into matters further. It’s about time, huh? The Congressional head count is nearing 20 now! Hooray!
EINSTEIN IF I WERE TO REMAIN SILENT
 

Back to the Dept of Rehab thoughts:

IF Charles Romano had had, perhaps, stronger legal representation, he might still be alive and returned to his job at Ralph’s.
I know more cases on the verge of similar consequences, NATIONALLY.
We must #Blog4TheCure, imho.
NAIDW 54 million plus

It is understood that a legal association attempted to hold the adjuster and the insurance carrier in the Romano case accountable for the death of Charles Romano, unsuccessfully.


One attorney, who asked not to be named, told me that the post-death failed legal effort gave the ‘green light’ to the industry to deny medical care to all injured workers. Quite the win for the industry because the risk of a $100,000 fine for a death consequence is more cost effective, in many cases, than providing care and treatment. Quite the loss for the working class and for humanity itself.


Such atrocities are history repeating itself. Boxcars full of people were exterminated in WW2 and few raised their voices or hands to help. Church folks were said to sing louder as the boxcars of wailing prisoners rolled by enroute to the death kamps. Injured Workers often feel like such POW’s, with no place to turn for help.


So, if one Super Lawyer said that about the Romano case, how many others know or believe it to be true? More importantly, how many insurance industry carrier believe it, and profit grandly by it? The results in CA speak for themselves, although DIR paints a much prettier picture of it’s veneer of successes.


 

We anticipate full on Congressional Investigations into California’s WorkComp systems—top to bottom—- and some are fond of saying, in response to their October 2015 note to the Department Labor asking if more enforcement help is required, ‘YEAH! SEND IN THE NATIONAL GUARD TO PROTECT CALIFORNIA WORKERS! Casualties are rising!”



 

We need Injured Disabled Workers Associations, not unlike labor unions, but of The People, By The People, and For The People, in every state but with a focus to help Injured Workers maneuver and survive workers compensation as practiced today.


Many injured workers retain and dismiss 4 or 5 or even more attorneys, and end up self-representing in order to reach resolutions in order to ESCAPE WORKERS COMPENSATION. Many doctors and lawyers who left the work field will quietly tell any injured worker friend, ‘GET OUT OF THE SYSTEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!”.  


 

How many cases roll on for years and years…. Even the attorney crowd must grow weary of the small ‘commissions’ made on their old cases, where nobody but the insurance company is left whole.



Many injured workers are directed to “Social Services” welfare, because insurance carriers refuse to pay TTD benefits and SSA can take years.


Most injured workers, so it seems, would return to work within weeks or months IF THERE WAS some process to get immediate reasonable and necessary medical care. Till we have a system like that, the WarOnWorkers will continue to cost lives of Americans across the nation, while the industry reaps grand profits.


Organizing injured workers into teams of bloggers, maximizing the use of the internet to let the truth be told, seems to be an important action item.


Forging links of communications and goodwill between WorkComp Industry players and Injured Workers, could serve to bridge some communication gaps, and Social Media Groups can fill that need…. sort of like Pen-Pals that keep Convicts connected to the world, e-pals could facilitate constructive change through sharing of information with influencers.

  • The Workers’ Comp Industrial Complex! Stop! Hey! What’s That Sound?   Note the political representatives and others who have gone on record as being quite concerned about Workers Compensation in America.  Many WorkCompsters call such stories ‘hyperbole’….  Many Many Injured Workers know the extreme harsh realities of the atroacities of America’s Workers Compensation systems.
  • “WorkComp is a slow kill – Rads are a sure kill.”    See who else is demanding investigations about nuclear programs as well…. The similarities?  Connect the dots!  BOTH INDUSTRIES, WORK COMP AND NUCLEAR, Operate from the PlayBook of “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES”….  Who else isn’t doing their job?  Who has broken their Oath?
  • How to defend against such psychopathy? O SAY CAN YOU READ AMERICA? –>  Your Radiation This Week  Google & Share It and #DodgeTheRads.  Most injured workers get at least one blessing….they are forced to #ShelterInPlace!

Industry propaganda statistics were just released by the Berkeley Research Group.  How much did they get paid for this report?

Their “findings”  “prepared for the Division of Worker’s Compensation” of October 16, 2015, as discussed in the blog, LEARNING THE LESSONS  by David DePaolo indicate:
  1. 85% of workers injured in 2013 reported being “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with access to treating physicians and the treatment they received.

There is a group called National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers  http://naidw.org It’s volunteers and the biggest support is the community forums. Their slogan is “No Injured Worker Left Behind.”
 
There are also support groups on Facebook…. search “injured workers” and “work comp” and “workers compensation”
 
 
LinkedIn might be a great place for you to start a group…. ‘thinking about ______?’….   (I know a great deal about social media….if you’re not on LinkedIn yet, let me know and I’ll tell you why and how to change that!)

Surviving Work Comp – A Series WHAT DO YOU THINK? Draft One

SKY EARTH FIRE

Back in 2012, one doctor suggested that I write about my work comp experiences after a witnessed slip and fall backwards, big, hard, conk on the head, little-to-no medical care over the course, in order to help me process what was happening to me with the lack of medical care, legal chicanery, and fight for my life.

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

.

It took until the summer of 2013 to make it a blog…..the earlier writings were to WorkComp people — doctors, adjusters, lawyers, human resources. Initially, I suspected the poor treatment was simply that some of the people I was dealing with were simply stupid.   I discovered it is far worse than that.

"WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW" #OccupyVirtually
“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW” #OccupyVirtually  – #DodgeTheRads  

Have you seen the movie, WOMAN IN GOLD?  Here’s the trailer.  I watched it this week.  I cringed and gasped repeatedly as I saw parallels between those atrocities, and the life destroying actions of the WorkCompsters around the nations.  It is time for more Doctor’s Trials, to include the complicit sonderkommando, wouldn’t you agree?

 

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

 

Watch it and see for yourself how the parallels can be drawn with the devastation and destruction by the Nazi’s in the 30’s and similar destruction of life in the 21st century—of disabled workers, older workers and other ‘economically undesirable’ or ‘unprofitable’ members of the working classes.  If you do watch it, pay particular attention to the cheering when the Nazi’s rolled in to Austria, and the terrors that followed and wonder about shareholders of the companies causing such atrocities. Today, they don’t roll in in tanks, it’s the sedans and stretch limos?  Yikes!

 

If you don’t know any Injured Workers and if you are like the ‘cheering crowds’ of the profitable workcomp industries, also take a look at “The First Leaflet” and the next time medical care is denied on your watch, ask about your own humanity and soul.

.

Injured Workers lose their sanity, their jobs, their homes and their lives in the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business model that provides windfalls of profits, faster upon death of injured workers, to insurance industries and ancillary venues.

WHITE ROSES AND LINKED IN 5 16 2015
Are you #LinkedIn?

It’s thrilling to see that the nation is finally discussing, out loud and virtually, some of the horrific atrocities of WorkComp. No more sugar-coating the atrocities. Enough of you know the real deal.

.

MAY AMERICA LEAD THE WAY TO STOP THESE ATROCITIES…..

We, The People,  Are The Media Now.  “Let’s get right to it!”

.

Wouldn’t it be beneficial and life-extending if…..some of the biggies….. WorkCompCentral + ProPublica + National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers accelerate the discussion WITH AN EMPHASIS CHANGE TOWARD SOLUTIONS?  Enough already with the hand-wringing and rhetoric.

 

If you’re in the industry, Y’all already know what’s happening. DO SOMETHING TODAY.  MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT.  “ADOPT AN INJURED WORKER” AND HELP THEM ESCAPE FROM THE “assembly lines of death” and OPEN AIR DEATH CHAMBERS!

If not you, then who?  If not now, then when?

Go save yourself from the zombies

.

Let’s individually and collectively conduct interviews with doctors, lawyers and others who have “left the industry” so that real issues can be addressed, in a less threatening manner, with, perhaps, some amnesty provisions for early responders.

.

These WorkComp challenges and atrocities are Universal —- perhaps the USA, Canada, UK and Australia have similar organizations — like WorkCompCentral + ProPublica + National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers and everybody can join forces to save/extend lives.

.

We’ll probably need some educational events to address BEST PRACTICES for Whistle Blowing, in all quarters, wouldn’t you agree?

It has been somewhat comforting over the past year to see discussions about the many horrors of WorkComp, along with the high profits for the insurance carriers. Romano Trust Vs. Sedgwick seems to have paved the way for carriers to “wish and hope you die” if you are an injured worker —-it’s an cost effective strategy, in perfect alignment with PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models, also used by the Nuclear Industries?

.

Here is a study by Everette Lee Herndon, Jr.  on Workers Comp & Bad Faith: Unacceptable Oversights The Insurer’s Duty and The Romano Case. Published on http://www.propertycasualty360.com on July 15, 2013  that will prove insightful to any readers, industry or non-industry.  If you’re human, read it; you’ll get it.

.

A recent DePaolo World blog shared another story with the same trend….. Profit Before People rather than the carrier paying for transitional living facilities at approximately $40K a month, likely with the help of some nasty pharmaceutical, that injured worker’s ‘suicidal ideations’ and attempts could save that carrier a bundle…..  and have “Happy Shareholders”??  Yikes!  See also Guilty Without Charge

.

Well, recently a recommendation from another doctor/coach suggested I write about my WorkComp experiences.  I shyly reported, “Well, I have a little blog already, but I do want to write a book.”   Unimpressed (and previously unaware of my blogs) it was suggested that before our next meeting that I “write an Introduction and a Chapter Outline.”  😀   THIS IS THE INTRODUCTION!   HERE COMES THE OUTLINE!

Did I leave anything out?  Do you think a series of e-books would fly?  Would you read it if it was free?  Would you prefer to pay 99 cents for each e-booklet?  Would you watch a webinar about Whistle Blowing, Blogging, Administrative Tasks for Injured Workers and more?  Would you join groups on the NADIW.org site, LinkedIn, Facebook and elsewhere to further discussion and enhance your own blogs?
