This poll was shared on Facebook. What do you think about teaching Injured Workers, represented and unrepresented, how to maximize use of Social Media to ensure “immediate, appropriate and necessary medical care and benefits” in a workplace injury, and documentation of the process, including a pipeline to sound the alarms when actions by professionals, medical/legal/bureacrats seems questionable, at best.
Currently, Injured Workers appear to have no Civil Rights or Human Rights and the industry profiteers have no apparent interest in doing anything that might disrupt the extreme profits of an extremely vile industry.
What say you? Are you a social media expert willing to volunteers some ‘free training’ and participate in a group in a pro-bono fashion?
Are you an attorney who wrings hands and complains, ‘ain’t it awful’ and if your clients had the media’s attention, could that help you get cases to the MEDIATION TABLE WITH INTENTION TO SETTLE? DO YOU HAVE A BLOG AND SUPPORT GROUP FOR YOUR CLIENTS?
Are you a defense firm that has incorrigible adjusters and inexperienced attorneys increasing risks for your firm and clients and think that a good social media program on both sides could mitigate file churning and med-legal fraud?
Are you a HR professional who believes you cannot even send a get well card to an injured worker and you are afraid of litigation because of the wrongs you observe? What if your company has an in-place social media platform, and even a group for your Injured Workers to convene and yes, even compare notes on the various doctors, lawyers and treatments. Would Corporate Legal encourage #CourageousConversation in a private social media community such as on LinkedIn and Facebook? DO YOU HAVE A BLOG AND SUPPORT GROUP FOR YOUR INJURED WORKERS?
If you are a District Attorney, Mediator, FBI agent, DOL agent or member of the ICC, do you have suggestions and resources for Injured Workers, around the globe, being tortured, maimed and murdered with little plausible deniability all because they got injured at work?
Are you an Investigative Journalist who must follow orders and have been advised that real stories on #WorkComp are VERBOTEN?
Are you a helpless family member or friend of an Injured Worker wondering what on Earth you can do to intervene?
Hey. Help me understand so we can help one another move forward? Got a blog? Yeah, I know, it’s hard.
I’m working on blog post about Social Media for Injured Workers (aka Virtual Combat Skills) since the #WorkComp industry seems to be escalating intimidation tactics of Injured Workers who dare to use social media like a MEDIA BLAST AND OR microphone.
Have you noticed?
Facebook has a reputation for being a place for #WorkComp “Victims” stuck in learned helplessness and whining that the #WorkCompsters don’t play nice.
NOT ENOUGH INJURED WORKERS HAVE BLOGS TO SURVIVE. LET’S MOVE ON TO PLAN B: USE WHAT YOU GOT.
ARE YOU USING SOCIAL MEDIA #BeyondFacebook?
Please let us know which social media platforms you have, which you need help with? Thanks
“Without a blog, a growing email list, and ,a fierce social media strategy, Injured Workers are unarmed and unprotected in the global war on workers.”#USA#Canada#UK#Australia and Your Country!
Please allow me to introduce myself! Here’s a pre-video announcing a new e-course, coming soon to you and yours!
My #WorkComp Coach is a channel dedicated to the Survival of Injured Workers by sharing compensatory strategies, experience, strength, hope & virtual Combat Skills that can be implemented to win the War On Workers. A degree of humor may be deployed from time to time.
AAWCGT will become an archive, as the parties in the earlier referenced matters ‘have reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.’ You will be invited to subscribe to the new sites, just as soon as they are ready!
#Vlog4TheCure #Blog4TheCure #OccupyVirtually!
Surviving WorkComp – Combat Skills!
Can’t we just GIVE PEACE A CHANCE?
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW…. #Blog4TheCure #Vlog4TheCure #Dodgeradsnow
….in the subject line. Include your blog and vlog address; we’re creating a directory too! Be in it!
Details will follow soon! SUBSCRIBE! BE #ITK! OR SOL!
We’ll be strategizing about Workers Compensation, Concussions, TBI, Radiation, and Nuclear matters. A ‘Free-For-Now’ e-course is in the works….you’ll want to see it and take notes!
PS: Ask about YOUR RADIATION THIS WEEK ! Each One Warn One Thousand! Or at least repost on your social media sites with the smartest people! #Dodgeradsnow
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW. CONNECT THE DOTS!
This channel addresses the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models of the WorkComp industries as well as the Nuclear Industries and will serve as a further resource for those seeking positive, life-extending solutions.
There is zero tolerance for psychopaths and comments may be edited by The Coach without warning or discussion. All positive input is more than welcome and may be included in future blogs, vlogs and addresses.
If you have friends who serve or served in the military, ask them for instructions on how POWs are to conduct themselves when captured by enemy forces. The rules seem clear enough for those with eyes to see.
We’ll introduce the WorkCompCoach e-course curriculum along with Creative Coach Amy in the next videos, complete with “Opt-In” buttons. First things first and one thing at a time!
In addition to sharing her gifts about creation of online courses and more, Amy has a special gift for you, and other Friends of Lucy Occupy’s, too! Watch for it!
It’s time to RESTORE CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS TO INJURED WORKERS NOW! Everybody must do his/her share!
PS Looks like no Trial Return to Work for me yet, no response from any of the “supplemental people” either; Grrrrrr; stand by for more blogging; things are getting REAL SERIOUS…
Thanks so much for reading, and for your private comments and support! 🙂 We’re making a difference. 😀 I can take the heat! Keep the insights coming… LIVES ARE AT STAKE!
That’s all for now; must shift gears and write a polite and fierce PETITION FOR ORDER TO COMPEL RIGHT ACTION AND LEGAL COMPLIANCE in response to current defense chicanery to have Judge compel more doctor shopping, to an ENT to dispute recommendations from a Brain Injury Rehab Center auditory expert, and to find out why CNA continues to refuse authorized neuro-optometry examination, and to get another QME to collude with 3 others for fraudulent reports in yet another neuro-psych eval. How many is enough? Yeah, I get it, Guys. Tsk tsk tsk. #TTFN WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW…..
PS Let’s hope they are not serving unapproved CDC “Sushi” at the Gala… Right, Jon Gelman? Let’s keep Dodging Those Rads!
1. Reflect on what you wish you had known soon after your injury about Surviving Work Comp. Consider blogging.
2. Make a list of your possible nominations for the Comp Laude 2015 Nominations in the categories of Employer, Injured Worker, Judicial Officer, Seminar Presenter, Physician, Support Services Provider; then nominate. Re-Read DePaolo’s World on “Work Comp and Baseball” and follow that blog!
#WorkComp?! How many of us wish we knew in the first year, what we have learned the very hard way years into fighting with the WorkCompsters for survival? If only those who had been tortured, maimed, abused and killed by the #WorkComp system advocates and enforcers had spoken out!
How many of us wish we had known how to retain a competent attorney and how to dismiss when we realized we had selected poorly, and how to keep records, how to get reimbursed for medical miles and expenses, and how to change doctors when it was clear we had been sent to those owned/leased by the insurance industries, with intentions of harm of any means necessary in a PROFITS BEFORE LIVES inhumane business model?
How many of us wish we knew how to represent ourselves; since, as some say on Facebook, ‘when you retain an attorney, you have willingly signed up to be a slave, without any rights.” How many of us wish we had known how to facilitate mediation when total destruction seemed imminent? How many of us wish we had true skills for defense against the psychopaths? How many of us wish we had studied, Rules of Verbal Self Defense against Corporate Psychopaths, sooner?
How many of us wish we had known we would have to humbly rely on the charity of groups like the Salvation Army for utilities and food because of the epic fail of WorkComp? How many of us wish we had known that our employers DO NOT CARE, and WILL NOT HELP US? How many of us wish that American doctors truly honor their oath to, “DO NO HARM.”
How many of us wish we had never had to depend on Social Services; the Welfare Office, because of an untreated work injury? How many of us feel great shame and outrage for our Country, and our Countrymen that cause such harm to the Working Class?
How many of us wish we knew that our coworkers would be told they could not speak to us, not even to extend a get well wish or invite for a meal? How many of us wish we knew how to plan to return to work without medical care before release to work by some industry person, since no care was forthcoming, and agents of the carrier refuse to pay legally due disability benefits, saying mean things like, ‘….so tell me, [Injured Worker], when ARE you going to die?’
How many of us wish we had known which government agencies were charged with protecting our Civil Rights from these crooks and criminals, and how to contact them, and under what time lines, and how to follow up, and how to elevate complaints when no action is taken?
How many of us wish we had known which agents and agencies seem to be working for the insurance industries rather than upholding the Constitution of the United States of America, including but not limited to the 5th and 14th Amendments? How many of us wish there was a legitimate FRAUD HOTLINE to report doctor/lawyer/adjuster et al fraud?
How many of us wish we had known how to get legal help when each State’s Applicant’s attorney’s associations and their members failed us miserably? How many of us wish we had better strategies for dealing with the outrageous human rights violations, akin only to what the people tortured and terrorized in Nazi Germany must have felt, as their friends and neighbors and paid professionals just looked the other way as the experiments and tortures and gruesome deaths merely profited the few?
How many of us wish we knew that if we were to get health care, we had to get it for ourselves or die as fodder for the profits of the Workcompsters?
How many of us wish we knew what the experts know very well….that the horrors we face are common place, but too bad, how sad. Nobody cares. There’s “no profit” in helping an injured worker, “the money is on the defense side.”
How many of us wish we had been included in Applicant Attorney conferences, so we could meet alleged providers, and attorneys to help us survive? How many of us can network an Exhibit Hall and make solid contacts with real humans in the WorkComp world, being steered away from the psychopaths?
TAKE THE LAWYERS OUT OF THE WORK COMP EQUATIONS?
So maybe create new laws that have a one year maximum duration for a workcomp case–if injured worker has not received sufficient medical care within one year to return to work, settle up so Injured Worker can get legitimate medical care privately; any delays to have penalties that go directly to the Injured Worker, without delay or obfuscation.
Or, HOW ABOUT PRIVATE POLICIES PROTECTING INJURED WORKERS HARMED BY WORK COMP CARRIERS TO PURCHASE AS PART OF EMPLOYEE BENEFITS, in addition to LTD, to include medical benefits, FOR PROTECTION FROM EMPLOYER’S WORK COMP CARRIER ERRORS, OMISSIONS, FRAUD, EXTORTION, FAILURES TO TREAT, BULLYING AND INTIMIDATION AND REDUCED EARNING CAPACITIES AND JOB LOSSES. Could be a whole new market, huh? ]
Doctors and lawyers quietly leave the injured workers to the sharks and snakes of the industries. Medicated, few workers have a chance at Survival. How many of you wish we knew then, what we know now?
Well, Einstein said, ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the DUTY to act.’ — WE ARE PRIVILEGED TO KNOW, therefore, WE HAVE THE DUTY TO ACT.
After the second year, when cognitive functions began to improve– after the rest and wait and wait and wait recovery plan -people began to tell me some of the harsh and horrible truths with tips on how to survive and with some luck, how to make a positive impact for all of us; it’s my turn to begin to tell you more….
BE YOUR OWN HERO…..NOBODY IS COMING TO HELP YOU. Connect with the good people you find around the internet, strengthen their hands. Injured Veterans are in the same fight…. This is a #WarOnWorkers — Civilian and Military.
“..What are the COMP LAUDE™ AWARDS?The Comp Laude™ Awards recognize integrity and excellence in the workers’ compensation industry. Industry professionals are encouraged to nominate individuals or companies that have set themselves apart by demonstrating excellence. Nominations are now accepted nationwide. The Comp Laude™ Awards are given by WorkCompCentral and presented at the annual Comp Laude™ Gala in the Los Angeles area in December.”
Last year, I was one of four Injured Worker’s finalists in the WorkComp Central CompLaude event. It was a positive event, and the WorkComp people were seen to be human, for the most part.
If you don’t follow David DePaolo’s blog, why not? Be ITK. I appreciate most of them, and I like how David thinks. I used to think strategically and logically as that; now I have to rely on muddling and compensatory strategies… But, here’s what David included in his blog, WORK COMP AND BASEBALL
There are, however, claims that are difficult from the very outset. Sometimes we hear about them but most of the time we don’t.
The ones that we do hear about get dismissed from our conscience too easily because the melodrama in their vocalization of what’s wrong gets drowned by our own jaded pessimism.
These cases, though, are real. There are real people behind these cases. People get hurt. People get toyed with. People don’t get what is needed, what is promised in the Grand Bargain, and set aside as disturbed and having unrealistic expectations.
Some contact me because of this blog, seeking answers, help and remedies.
I have met some – like Linda Ayers. I won’t get into Linda’s case here – that’s not the point.
Linda is vocal, like a few other injured workers. She has a blog, she is active in social media, she posts comments to this blog.
And she probably drives the defense crazy as she is prolifically passionate about making sure the system works for her and for other injured workers.
It’s easy to dismiss Linda’s activities as the rantings of an unstable person, but she is not an unstable person. She is a person who’s case spiraled out of control from the beginning, and we know that the early stages of a claim are the most critical.
There’s Darren Fonzseau and Cecilia Watt, more vocal injured workers seeking stabilization of their claims, timely payment of benefits and authorization of medical treatment.
Nominations open June 1st, 2015!
This doesn’t mean you can’t start thinking about who you will nominate. Nominations open June 1st, however, be on the look out for people or companies who are setting themselves apart, doing positive things in the industry. Nomination Process
Nominees are accepted using an online nomination questionnaire developed and provided by WorkCompCentral. Nominations are open for a period of two months. All nominations are subject to verification / further qualification byWorkCompCentral staff. Once finalists have been qualified, nominations are turned over to our panel of judges.
Who Selects the Winners?
Winners are selected by a panel of judges made up of industry professionals with a proven history of workers’ comp knowledge and leadership. The 2015 panel of judges include:
Mark Walls, vice president, communications & strategic analysis, Safety National
Tim East, director, risk management, The Walt Disney Company
Kimberly George, SVP, senior healthcare advisor, Sedgwick
Joseph Paduda, principal, Health Strategy Associates
Michael Gavin, president, Prium
Last year, I experienced some pretty vile attacks for being nominated to the CompLaude 2014 awards, for being grateful, and for showing up and participating in a proactive manner, reaching out to other attendees at the Conference.
The attacks were from some long time injured workers on medications or they were just industry provocateurs. Fortunately, prior experience with nuclear industry provocateurs made it relatively easy to shun. We do not, however, forget. Ever. The blog memorializes it, so don’t let fear keep you away…
David DePaolo, CEO of WorkComp Central, an educational organization for industry people, is having the 4th Annual comp laude Awards Gala in December…. Where good people in the #WorkComp systems gather, and a few are acknowledged for being on the up and up, and for actually doing some good. Previous years, it was a California event. They have opened the doors to make it a national event, and the nominations are open through the end of August.
THINK OF AT LEAST TEN PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN KIND OR DECENT TO YOU THROUGH YOUR JOURNEY IN WORK COMP. JUST MAKE A LIST, FOR STARTERS.
THEN, WRITE DOWN AT LEAST TEN THINGS YOU CAN MUSTER UP TO BE GRATEFUL FOR ABOUT EACH OF THOSE TEN. Look at each list, separately, and send a quiet thank you to each one, as you recall their kindness and helpfulness or expertise.
Well, we have the internet today; NO EXCUSES for keeping their dirty secrets. If we can roll out of bed to the keyboard, we can make a difference, imho. If we can’t, then we can reach to the night table, grab a smart phone, and make a difference! WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW
Games are changing. All workers, injured or not, might find some real value in these free 10-minute podcasts from $100 MBA…. they are filled with some great info on business, as it is being done now…. and since you may have to recreate yourself instead of being destroyed by WorkComp, you might find some inspiration here, too. It’s almost like being back at work….and least the brain cells get a work out and new neuropathways seem to be under construction!
I hope to be able to soon put together a little e-book for you on Surviving WorkComp….We’ll start with how to identify and deal with doctor, lawyer, adjuster fraud, perhaps, because on such fraud is all harm to injured workers built. We all have a wealth of information gathered from being in the trenches, in the #WarOnWorkers!
What would YOU tell the others?
I would like to see EVERY INJURED WORKER BLOGGING…. or at the very least, keeping accurate records via a Journal to share later. What prevents YOU from blogging?NAIDW site even offers a blog feature. Let’s go! 🙂
If you have insights to share, let me know, too. WorkCompLinda@gmail.com and see my blogs at…
How is the internet changing WorkComp Survival Rates? How will it impact indictments and incarerations of Enemies of Humanity? We’ll see. As Bucky Fuller was known to say, Let’s build the New; Let the Old Destroy itself (or words to that effect.)
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” -RBF
#Demolition of WorkComp Industry — In Progress. FULL SPEED AHEAD! Will the ProPublica Team be at the WorkComp Comp Laude Awards Gala? I know a few people who may be nominating that team, too.
$100 MBA? Revolutionary Idea! Business Game Changers!
Go Omar! Go Nicole! Thanks, from the Battlefields of WorkComp!

Date of Traumatic Brain Injury, an observed slip and fall backwards, in which manager helped injured worker off the ground after a prolonged period on the ground, unable to get up alone, dazed and confused: January 9, 2012 —- and somehow Defense firm alleges the TBI did not happen at work? D’oh!
Wyndham Worldwide has graciously provided unpaid “leave of absence” with sporadic disability benefits and some chiropractic and clinical psychologist sessions in 2012, and physical therapy in 2013, then some speech therapy, occupational therapy and more physical therapy in year in 2014, with a few acupuncture treatments and EVALUATIONS BY APPROXIMATELY 40 DOCTORS since date of injury (huh??)
Hotel discount vouchers have been graciously provided by Wyndham Worldwide Human Resources so that self discovered and self-procured brain injury program could be attended since October 2014, but no help to get medical care or proper primary treating doctors for clearly diagnosed brain injury. One workcomp QME neurologist said that ‘women over the age of 35 are not entitled to medical care for traumatic brain injury.’ Will someone else please notify the ADA and EEOC and ACLU and NLG? Thanks. That ABA doesn’t seem to care, nor does CAAA.
Did ALL those doctors all fail to properly fill out the recommendations for medical care? How about the crew of doctors who just changed the date of injury to 2013, then used 2012 reports to falsely allege ‘pre-existing’ brain injury? D’oh!
No worries, fraud is apparently not prosecuted in WorkComp cases, even if it violates Article 14 of the State of California Constitution and even when it violates the 5th and 14th Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of America. Whaaaaat? Yeah, the #Workcompsters seem to have some sort of exemption from prosecution. Could somebody ask the ACLU and NLG to look into that further? Thanks!
While leave has been extended repeatedly, there has been no effort by the employer to intervene or audit failures of the work comp carrier to provide medically necessary treatments since date of injury. “Proper Notice of MPN” is apparently telling an injured worker “see any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and providing injured worker with an incomplete DCW-1 form to give to the doctor (without any insurance company information on it.) My my my. Wyndham Wyndham Wyndham!
Efforts requesting mediation were met with further hostilities and insults, including calls to injured worker asking, “…when ARE you going to die?” and bullying recommendation that injured worker consider a Court Appointed Conservator to finalize maneuvers through the obfuscation of the #WorkComp Legal Chicanery. Complaints have been made to multiple law enforcement agencies.
Since injured worker’s primary workcomp treating doctor, for a brain injury, has been primarily an Orthopedic Surgeon, who apparently got tired of the threats of exclusion from a highly profitable referral network by insurance carrier for attempting since February 2013 to get specialized brain injury further evaluations and treatment is now off the case, since December 2014. The secondary doctor, a neuro-psych found by injured worker in April 2014, self-procured and then authorized as an exception, has been off the case since April 2015. What’s an injured worker to do without a primary treating doctor and without competent legal counsel? Yikes!
No doctors have yet been willing to take liability to release injured worker to date without medical care back to work, and now the Catch 22 seems to be to find a doctor willing to re-evaluate, review all records, and determine the improvements made at the self-procured COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM, since October 2014, with the continuation and completion of program anticipated through December 2015, and if and when return to work with or without accommodations may happen.
Social Security Disability has recently determined that the injured worker is chronically and permanently disabled. Injured Worker does not want to be “disabled” and is working very hard to learn compensatory strategies for cognitive losses and impairments.
Pre-TBI Photo above, 2010. High desert. Roadrunners and Bunnies, too. WorkComp War on Workers takes a huge toll on anybody. Have walked on fire, bent rebar at throat chakra, climbed to the top of telephone polls and zip lined from very high places. Expletives are now common place; not sure if they are due to the brain injury or the insults to injury by WorkCompsters, Crooks and Employer.

January 9, 2012- April 2, 2012 – CHIROPRACTIC – 14 TREATMENTS, interrupted, non-consistent care. 6 additional treatments authorized in June 2013, however, a provider has not been found willing to accept workers comp insured injured worker.
January 14, 2012 – August 21, 2012 PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT – 13 treatments (20 minutes from injured worker’s home) to sort thru horrors and abuse of maze of denied medical care, incompetent legal counsel, lack of support and on-going mental abuse and denials of medical care by insurance company adjuster and lawyers; 4 treatments (2 hours from injured workers’ home) in the summer of 2012 with a doctor of unknown credentials, aimed at ‘masking impairments of brain injuries’ and considering self-procurement of various technology gadgets to help complete a charade to cover up significant brain injuries.
April 19, 2013 – May 8, 2013 – PHYSICAL THERAPY, CERVICAL ONLY – 8 treatments, further treatment recommended, not-authorized.
Is that possibly reasonable, appropriate or adequate medical treatment in compliance with ACOEM GUIDELINES for treatment of head trauma, concussion, TBI and more??
WCAB Information Officer was unable/unwilling to share the alleged office copy of the ACOEM book with at least THIS injured worker.
We are the media now….we do not…FORGET.

We are the media now….we do not…FORGET.
And how many doctors have been paid thousands of dollars for reports based on incomplete records, and based on omitted reports due to denied physician requested specialty evaluations and treatments?
Denials for authorizations for requested specialty evaluations and specialty treatments have completed the fraudulent acts in order for the defense to allege by omissions of records and inclusion of records created based on omitted records and medical evidence of substantial brain injury, ‘THERE IS NO MEDICAL EVIDENCE OF INJURY’
These fraudulent acts are supported by reports by insurance-company leased/owned doctors, without expertise or even basic knowledge of brain injuries, thereby complicit in the acts of fraud with intention to deny medical care to injured worker, and profit handsomely thereby.
FRAUD IS FELONY, EVEN WHEN COMMITTED BY LAWYERS AND DOCTORS AND INSURERS. IS IT PROSECUTED? WE’LL SEE, WON’T WE.
If the premature death of the injured worker is ultimately attributed by the Coroner’s office to be related to the brain injury sustained on January 9, 2012, while in the employ of WorldmarkByWyndham, WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE……………..WHO FACES THE DEATH PENALTY FOR SAID MURDER OF INJURED WORKER? Some Corporation, or some employees of those Corporations?
THE LAW DOES NOT REQUIRE AN INJURED WORKER TO GROVEL AND PLEAD AND BEG FOR MEDICAL CARE FOR AN INDUSTRIAL INJURY. THE LAW IS CLEAR THAT AN EMPLOYER HAS AN IMMEDIATE AND PRO-ACTIVE RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE, REASONABLE AND APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE TO AN INJURED WORKER.
Those who defy those laws, and do so by fraud and for profit, must be considered enemies of the American Workers, and must be brought to Justice for their individual and collective crimes against INJURED AND DISABLED AMERICAN WORKERS.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE?? If not now, then when?? If not you, then who??How many more must be maimed, injured and killed by a corrupt group of medical and insurance killers??
CAN YOU SAY WHY AMERICA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD??

“Your opinions and comments are very important and we read every message we receive. Due to high volume, we’re not always able to provide a personal response, but we do appreciate your feedback.” – CBS News
One Ant Says: Sure thing. We are the Media Now. Expect Us.
ONE ANT SAYS… Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Train and PROVIDER FRAUD… maiming and killing workers daily in blatant disregard for Law and Life ……” One Injured Worker, BRAIN INJURY SURVIVOR fights back….DEMAND THE CRIMINALS FACE THE NATION “
Is it time to do a story on Workers Comp Gravy Train Provider Fraud, exposing the racketeering aspects of implementation & bastardization of Workers Comp, and exposing the defense law firms as the ENEMIES OF US WORKERS and of HUMANITY they are, not unlike the NAZI SS Sonderkommandos?
Let’s hold these Workers Comp Doctors and Lawyers and Third Party Providers accountable for the fraudulent denials of timely, reasonable and appropriate medical care throughout the USA. Their practices are maiming and killing workers injured workers around the USA. GRAND JURY INDICTMENTS TIME??
Who is Kimberly Mall and did she sell her soul to the (d)EVIL? Who is Daniel Elliott and did he sell his soul to the (d)EVIL?
Who else ……. ? Who is James O’Brien? Who is Marcel Ponton? Who is Bijan Zardouz? Who is Khalid Ahmed? Who is Gurvinder Uppal? Who is Stephen Waldman? Who is David Gray? Who is Mike Durich? Who is Lisa Timm? Who is David Lynch?
Who is Franz Hanning?
What else? Grancell-Law? Wyndham Worldwide? CNA Claims Plus? WorldMark by Wyndham? American Casualty? Corvel Corporation? WHAT ELSE?
Stop by any Workers Comp office and see the SS in training, working as DEFENSE LAWYERS in training, “BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE THE MONEY IS” [AND THAT’S WHERE THE PSYCHOPATHS RULE??]???
Stop by any Worker Comp Information Officer’s office for straight information for the unrepresented injured worker, and document the deceptions, diversions and complicity on behalf of the INSURANCE COMPANY BOTTOM LINES??
Stop by any of the designated Information Officer’s desks and see if you get straight up information, or insurance company biased mis-information?? It’s telling, yes??
California District Attorney’s office funded with millions of dollars in FY 2014 to FIGHT WORKERS COMP FRAUD. Are the real crooks on their radar??
Do your own investigations; draw your own conclusions.
Here’s a case to begin with: CA ADJ8181903 INJURED WORKER, BRAIN INJURY SURVIVOR
“Research shows over 300,000 veterans are suffering with TBI. When are we as a nation going to “Wake up” and demand better treatment for these Americans?….” VT 10-23-2011
“…we should mention the 26,000 veterans who have been discharged after service, dishonorable and undesirable discharges, many related to TBIs that are undiagnosed and the 500,000, TBI patients, awaiting disability compensation….” VT 10-4-2011
Every movement…. needs a flower….
Meanwhile, back to Corporate America…
FB FRIEND: Wow this is a horror story on the job injury should be covered 100%! And a TBI especially! Over the counter Analgesics?? As in take Tylenol & don’t call me in the morning? TBI is serious stuff.. ! Wow.. blown away again dear Lucy. Seems the faces & the names change but the game is the same. xox
Lucy Occupy Thanks …..will convey your kind thoughts to the Friend fighting the good fight….. She says it’s like fighting NAZI SONDERKOMMANDOS… in suits and white jackets….. committing atrocities against US Workers…. and getting away with murder…. politely…. not unlike the killings and maimings by Fukushima ….. and there are an increasing number of soldiers with TBI……
There are parallels to be drawn/dots to connect …. RADIATION POISONING causes Loss Of Executive Function….. so does a head trauma….. So, even like Scott Olsen……TBI fighters are at the front lines…… and it’s another reason to STAY OUTTA THE STREETS….. THINKING LOCALLY, ACTING GLOBALLY, OCCUPYING VIRTUALLY….. Lucy’s & Lisa’s friends MUTTERS regularly…. OCCUPY WYNDHAM!!! Hanz Franning KNOWS!!! XOXOXOX
Lucy Occupy Lucy’s friend, on the story below, also muttered, ‘YO. DOC, WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW…. and YO, DOC…. we do not forget…..EXPECT US.’
Workers’ Comp’ Insurance Company Doctor, and Secondary Treating Physician who has refused to see the Injured Worker since 3/18/13, after a one-time evaluation, sent the following correspondence, via certified mail, return receipt requested…
~ “I am in receipt of the numerous letters that you have been sending to my office. It has gotten to the point that I am putting you on notice that if you continue with the harassment, slander and incorrect statements, I am going to retain an attorney and brain a lawsuit against you. I recommend that you stop your malicious acts immediately.” Neurologist, Appointed Secondary Treating Physician, QME – no apparent TBI expertise, does not honor DO NO HARM philosophy toward injured worker.
Injured Worker, Brain Injury Survivor Screams: I AM INJURED, NOT STUPID!!!!
California Neurologist and QME, Qualified Medical Examiner, recommends “over the counter analgesics” as the only necessary treatment for TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY and consequent cognitive impairments…..INSURANCE COMPANY ADJUSTER AND DEFENSE ATTORNEY APPLAUD THE REPORT AND LOOK FOR THE ‘CASE CLOSED’ STAMP. LOOKS LIKE FRAUD, DOESN’T IT??!!
What’s the difference between a northern fairy tale and a southern fairy tale?? How does it relate to workers comp medical and legal questions?? Just suppose….
ONCE UPON A TIME….
MARCH 2013 regarding an untreated TBI injury of a snowy mountain morning in JANUARY 2012….. QME Neurologist recommends “over the counter analgesics” as the only necessary treatment for TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY and consequent cognitive impairments…..
Insurance Company Adjuster uses the apparently false and incomplete information and expensive industry doctor report as a weapon to continue to deny reasonable and appropriate medical care, knowing full well that TBI reduces life span on an ‘AVERAGE’ of 7-8 years, per the Brain Injury Association of America blog sites.
Defense attorney and WCAB Information Officer insist that another doctor cannot be designated as treating physician for Injured Worker/Brain Injury Survivor…..and several previously recommended authorization to see non-insurance company neurologists were denied denied denied till the spin came back to this one. What a coincidence,huh?
A Court order was recently obtained to compel defense to use alll medical records, immediately providing missing records (approximately 300 pages) to all recent medical evaluators for supplemental reports!
INJURED WORKER; BRAIN INJURY SURVIVOR:
“‘Over the counter analgesics’ is your onlyrecommendation to treat TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY???? What about my vision, memory, balance, did I say memory, auditory processing of info, processing of info, did I say Memory, immediate and short term, long term is fine…. 1969 was a great year….
Omg!! Let the Veteran’s Administration know, too….. how many Soldiers are returning with consequences of TBI, and all they need too is just a little over the counter analgesic?!! Are you sure?? Based on what scientific evidence do you make this claim??
Is that what the Tehran medical schools teach, or was that supplemental education in the USA?? Shocking discovery. Someone should let NIH know….they have just been allocated gazillions of dollars for brain injury research…. perhaps the funds can now be reallocated to evacuate Japan??? IT’S A SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL.
Do an internet search: tbi shortens life span? (177,000); workers comp racketeering? (109,000 google results)
“….Most Americans are somewhat distant from the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury. We know, by watching NFL football, that some of our favorite quarterbacks are not playing a game this week, due to the “concussion” that the player received the week before, but we as a nation are ignorant of the brain injuries our veterans have endured….”
“…This is part of the “Great Lie” that the DOD and the VA are perpetrating on our veterans with TBI…..”
ASK ABOUT FUKUSHIMA NOW; they have severe injured (radiation poisoned!) Workers Comp issues too. It’s a small world after all.
What is LOEF…. Loss of Executive Function?
Remarkable! Thanks for your insights and letter, Doc….. but there are a few other questions about your report…. the attorney suggested I ask the questions directly, and your office demanded that the questions be put in writing, after we clarified that you had indeed been APPOINTED as SECONDARY TREATING PHYSICIAN, as a Neurologist allegedly with current expertise and practice in TBI evaluation and treatment…….
I sent the questions mid-April. Are you still working on the responses??? Tough questions requiring more research? Or was my medical file tossed in the ‘too hard’ pile???
It’s late July, and I’ve done my best to keep you ‘in the loop’ as I seek medical care and implementation of LABOR CODE that required my employer to provide IMMEDIATE, REASONABLE AND APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE when I was injured on the job……
I have self procured enough medical diagnostic evaluations from non-insurance company doctors who DO NO HARM, even recently. Not one of those doctors from Casa Colina or elsewhere used your vision exam that starts out with “LOOK AT MY UGLY NOSE”……
Other doctors have provided some tests tracking my eyes, and STRIPES really send my brain into a spin…..but those doctors had tools and medical equipment….. When they checked my ability to ‘smell’ not one gave me the ‘3 choices’ exam you gave when you pronounced my sense of smell good……
BTW, shortly after your ‘eye exam’ I self-procured a follow up exam with a Neuro-Optometrist…DID YOU KNOW THAT THE EYES CAN BE PERFECTLY HEALTHY AND VISION SERIOUSLY IMPAIRED BECAUSE THE BRAIN DOES THE SEEING, NOT THE EYES? It sounds like some bizarre scientific conspiracy theory, huh??
As more and more studies demonstrating the corrosive effect of psychopathy on government, finance, and business emerge, researchers have begun to explore how our society itself has been molded in the psychopaths’ image …… [Ask about Gaslighting….. do an internet search; draw your own conclusions…]
On the video, see at 13:13 about waking up…… 13:36….”Psychopaths derive their power from the complicity of the general population….” WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW….’SOCIALLY DISTANCE FROM THE PSYCHOPATHS NOW…..’
The Judge made a Court order that you and the others are immediately provided with the omitted missing medical records (about 300 pages of the nearly 1,000 it seemed you had on your desk when you evaluated me….what DID they send you the first time???)
The Judge further requires a supplemental report from you and a few other doctors, so that I might finally be provided with some brain injury medical care….
The attorney for the defense is late in getting them to you, she claims ‘computer problems’…..it’s a huge law firm, and I guess she couldn’t borrow her assistant’s computer to finalize the work that was to have gone out last week…. but it’s still omitting records, so she has to finalize edits to the MEDICAL RECORDS INDEX before sending to y’all…. The parts of my brain that still work, still work good. As I have told every doctor, I’M INJURED NOT STUPID.
INJURED WORKER: Whaaaaat??? You refused to accept the omitted records from me, you refused to see me again, you have provided no further or supplemental reports on my health status, the Courts and Insurance Company have refused to allow me to designate a doctor with brain injury expertise as the Primary Treating Physician, your report is full of gross inaccuracies and I simply quote your bizarre “analgesic” final recommendation that has been used as a weapon toward my death by the Insurance Company Adjuster as ‘evidence’ that I need no ‘further’ medical care….beyond the hard fought for psychology visits to deal with the confusion and misinformation and will, malicious and ILLEGAL DENIALS OF MEDICAL CARE …. and you write such a bizarre letter to me, and send it certified mail, return receipt requested????

By the way, your office asked me to MAIL all communications, which I have done….fax has continued only on extremely time sensitive matters, as these are LIFE AND DEATH SITUATIONS.
“HUMAN SUFFERING MUST END!’
Remember when doctors honored the law,
DO NO HARM….
Remember…. we do not…forget.
ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS…
IF YOU SUSPECT FRAUD, tell your friends and neighbors first, then FILE COMPLAINTS WITH THE DA AND THE WCAB BOARDS.
On the claim form, you will see a message telling you that it is against the law for anyone to commit fraud in order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits or payments or deny an injured worker those benefits. FRAUD is a felony.
This law applies to everyone in the workers’ compensation system, including injured workers, employers, claims administrators, doctors and attorneys. To report fraud, [tell your friends and neighbors first, then] contact a local district attorney’s office or the California Department of Insurance.”
