#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.

“I’ll Be Back” #InjuredWorkersUniting

How did I know that Coastline ABI Program was for me? There was No Place Left to Go!  #WorkComp is not an Exclusive Remedy.  #WorkComp is NO REMEDY AT ALL!

OccupyVirtually! 99%

“In describing this class of traumatic brain injury”, says Asvar, “the term ‘mild’ is an absolute misnomer given the severity of possible complications and repercussions.” He adds, “Dismissing someone’s brain injury as ‘mild’ is akin to saying someone is ‘mildly’ paraplegic.” Chris Asvar, Esq. http://www.asvarlaw.com/casestudies/

Upon diagnosis of my brain injury, insurance benefits were cut off and all hope for medical care was dashed. After more than 2.5 years of muddling along on the California Worker’s Compensation and legal chicanery program of rest and wait and wait and wait, essentially without medical care and only sporadic ‘benefits’ and some assistance from The Salvation Army– my search for help became more diligent. A graduate of Coastline ABI, 16+ years post-injury, told me to ‘Get to Coastline, by any means necessary, immediately.’ That encounter was May 2014; by October 2014, I was gratefully enrolled in the Coastline ABI Program.

As another ‘High IQ TBI Survivor’ and based on my early research upon diagnosis, I discovered it was indicated how important interdisciplinary teamwork and treatment was for mitigating impairments that result from brain injury, since the brain is the Master Control Center.

Doctors recommended evaluations in the fields of neurology, neuro-optometry, orthopedic and MRI’s (basic and with a TBI protocol) and suggested chiropractic, acupuncture, vision, occupational and physical therapy, speech therapy with cognitive remediation, creating a ‘structured schedule’ and rest and wait and wait and wait.

The 8th largest insurance provider of the world’s largest hospitality company and their defense firm simply said no. My employer failed to intervene, the defense firm has used every means necessary to obfuscate facts and deny medical care. The carrier said they did not care that I had not received any medical care and in fact, their fraud department representative had the audacity to call on the phone and ask, ‘….So tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?’ (A medicated injured worker could be pushed over the edge by such a vile attack; a non-medicated injured worker might be inclined to FIGHT BACK. I am such a non-medicated Brain Injury Survivor.)

yoda readyOda (2)

The insurance carrier failed repeatedly to provide the recommended evals and treatments, so I read the reports and began to search out the right team of doctors, without help, and without insurance benefits, as my employee health insurance had expired, and return to work has been impossible to date. Perseverance is different from PERSEVERATING.

When I found a very knowledgeable neuro-psychologist, very familiar with head injuries, light began to glimmer down the tunnel. I obtained an MRI with a TBI protocol, and met with a terrific neurologist/psychiatrist at Scripps – Encinitas. His primary recommendation was “Embrace the New You” and when I sighed and whispered, “But I don’t know who she is, and she’s is not as fast or as smart as I used to be. They may have to rehabilitate me to become a neuro-scientist!”

WorkComp neurologists (2) suggested a) over the counter analgesics and b) that a woman over 35 with a closed head injury does not need any treatment, particularly since none was provided in the first 2 years. The WorkComp forensic psychiatrist, to support false allegations in order to deny medical care, also moved the date of injury from January 2012 to January 2013 in the report, and used medical records from 2012 to allege ‘pre-existing conditions.’ (These 3 doctors give a grave appearance of felony fraud, at the beckoning of the defense counsel, but that’s for another blog….and for the Department of Justice, perhaps. They were paid handsomely for their reports and supplemental reports (supplemental reports necessary due to the pattern and practice by defense of omitting approximately 300 pages of medical evidence to ‘defend’ the claim.)

The good and private (non WorkComp) neurologist recommended 3-6 months at the SCRIPPS Brain Injury Day Treatment Center or any of the various excellent programs that offer an interdisciplinary approach that includes speech, occupational and physical therapy. The insurance company agreed to 16 days, with an appeal for 8 more, then terminated the help. Granted, such help is most beneficial in the first months or years, and ‘RESTORATIVE” strategies seem limited so late in the ‘recovery game.’ That was more than 2.5 years post-injury.

In response to my suggestion that I may have to be rehabilitated and trained as a neuro-scientist, the Doctor quietly said that the full day 9th Annual Scripps Brain Injury Symposium was happening the following weekend, and that the audience is primarily doctors, military personnel, and other providers from interdisciplinary teams. He said I was welcome to attend. I attended. I met some brilliant and wonderful experts in the field of Brain Injury and Rehabilation from the medical and military and scientific communities. I also met a graduate of Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program, who shared his journey, and encouraged me to get to Coastline, by any means necessary.

“Dismissing someone’s brain injury as ‘mild’ is akin to saying someone is ‘mildly’ paraplegic.” – Asvar

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

While my employer has failed to provide medically necessary treatments, and has failed to intervene in the egregious breaches of fiduciary responsibilities to provide care and rehabilitation for a witnessed slip and fall backwards on ice in Big Bear, California, they did extend an employee discount so that I could stay in a Wyndham Worldwide Ramada Inn, with a wonderful, warm and welcoming staff, who seriously practice the Wyndham corporate policy of CountOnMe practices.

MARCH IS #BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH…. What did YOU learn this month, so far?

If it’s a work injury, prepare for the fight for your life, and hope somebody will help you.  Upon diagnosis of brain injury, it seems to be an insurance industry trend to immediately terminate benefits and begin a covert theme of terrorism—medical, mental, financial…. and they reap thousands of dollars in profits for their crime gangs.  Can the DOJ really just continue to look the other way?  America! America!  We are witnessing the collapse of an Empire…. couldn’t be more timely, huh?

MARCH IS ALSO #FUKUSHIMA ELE AWARENESS MONTH…. What you don’t know, will indeed kill you.  Start with the Science, 1,946 known lethal isotopes.  Wishing all the #WorkCompsters very interesting outdoor living.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY JUST DOING HIS JOB/JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS?

When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained

“The more I think about this legal chicanery… and the defense’s new demand for access to 25 years of medical Records, when they have ignored medical evaluations, recommendations and requests for treatment for the past 3 plus years, it sort of feels like a quote strip search unquote in a fascist gulag.”

Remember when the Insurance Carrier’s rep called from Chicago and the phone conversation about denied medical care concluded abruptly with his question, “….so, tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”  Bullying? Harrassment? Threat?

Gulags and WorkCompsters

All this for an untreated observed slip and fall backwards on ice at Wyndham Worldwide WorldMark Resort in Big Bear, California at approximately 8 am on January 9, 2012.   Wyndham had absolutely no WorkComp policies and procedures in place, did not call 911, did not offer a ride to a hospital, in fact, insisted that work shift be completed, and then was told to “see any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and proceed to drive down a snowy icy mountain road.

Are #CorVel UR Non-Recommendations Simply Hogwash?

WorkComp Demolition?  “PULL!”
.
Has anybody else experienced a pattern of practice by CorVel reports, allegedly written by various doctors but that appear to written by ‘less educated’ RNs, with skewed facts and gross mis-statements (some are pretty hysterical, if they were not so life-threatening!)
mlk hitler germany
The CorVel patterns of practice with allegations of attempts to reach requesting doctor for more information, with ‘no contact’ made because requesting doctor failed to jump through hoops and respond within minutes? Or how about the copies received by mail demanding response with 72 hours, postmarked 2 days or more past date of alleged request?  Or when they allege they left a message at a certain number, that is to rehabilitation unit recreation room, at which the requesting doctor has never been, let alone receive messages?   How about the guys call and say they are the doctor, but they are not the doctor, or at least a different doctor signs the report?  How about when the reports allege there was no contact, and the injured was present during the communications? Does that ever happen out there???
 .
One legal pal suggested that CorVel piece alone paves the way for CLASS ACTION for some smart class action/civil rights firm.  There was a recent article somewhere by someone complaining about CorVel, in addition to Mayor Betsy and Forth Worth Police Associations, too.   Maybe their Union could do a little…investigations into CorVel and nation maiming and terrorizing of injured workers?
 .
Does that just happen on Brain Injury cases?  Hmmmmmm  Anyhow…. Below is another little missive to CNA….. I got a little distracted trying to do some paper work today, and I just see red when I think of these people.
 .
Someone recently said, “Now, Linda, those lawyers are just doing their jobs.  Work Comp is broken; Nobody gets rich off WorkComp.”
.
😕   I nearly spit and said, “Not true.  It’s a mega billion dollar industry, and the only losers are the Injured Workers.  Not only have they failed to pay me disability benefits, they cooked the books and got approximately $18K in award money for refusing to pay TTD in 2012/2013 [State paid $49k 2012-2013, CNA reimbursed $31K in May 2014; injured worker screwed again] AND FOR FAILING TO PROVIDE MEDICALLY NECESSARY TREATMENTS ALL ALONG.
#GrandWorkCompFraud on the American People and Corporations
.
Not only does CNA fail to comply with basic labor code to provide immediate reasonable and necessary medical treatment, THEIR COUNSEL HAS THREATENED ALL SELF-PROCURED PROVIDERS, INTERRUPTING SELF-PROCURED CARE, AND USING FINANCIAL TERRORISM TO ENSURE MEDICAL CARE IS NOT PROCURED.
.
Then, they use fancy legal chicanery to continue to obfuscate the facts that they have, in a pattern of continuous harm, FAILED TO PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ACOEM, MTUS, OR EVEN 7TH GRADER COMMON SENSE! Where do they find these clowns to write reports on behalf of the defense firms.  I will NEVER forget the forensic psychiatrist who said that ‘if the finder of facts found that there was indeed a slip and fall and concussion, medical treatment would be necessary; there was not, and is no head injury, and she probably just has epilepsy.”
.
D’OH!  MY MANAGER HELPED ME UP FROM THE ICE, AND MY COLLEAGUES HAD A GOOD LAUGH AT THE SNOW ALL OVER ME, AND MY DAZED AND CONFUSED APPEARANCE…….   The Admin Manager told me to “See any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and gave me an incomplete DWC-1 form (no insurance info on it at all, just his signature)..D’oh!  Defense firms says that was “proper service” of their alleged “MPN”….. I was required to complete my shift, and find my way down an icy mountain road (20 miles) and then down a desert highway (40 more miles).  How did I do it and survive?  But for the Grace of God!….

DEMOLITION?   PULL!

Demolition of WorkComp  March 2015
NOTE:  Upon verification of Brain Injury is when TTD stopped (April 2012) and terrorism began.  In November 2012, they attempted to coerce early settlement that required forfeiting job, social security, medical, and more….for $100,000, less attorney fees.  That attorney no longer represents me.  He said it was a small community, work comp, and nobody would believe I have a brain injury.  D’oh.  Those idiots don’t even know what a physiatrist is, let alone brain lobes, cognitive and executive functions, etc.   We’ll talk more about attorneys soon…. Must get back to tasks at hand.

Dear Fred:
 .
Please provide me with another PD Advance by the end of the month.
I will need another advance of estimated Permanent Disability in the amount of $20,000 in order to move forward with return to work planning and obtaining medically necessary treatments, devices and software that have been properly requested since date of injury, by multiple doctors, and now, with more Grancell file churning, are moving into the IMR process.   I would like to receive the advance no later than March 30, 2015.
 .
 DOJ ADA
ADA ACCOMMODATIONS:  I am still awaiting word from Wyndham on extended leave of absence through December 2015, then return to work at Palm Springs, which is important to my planning at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program, a State institution, supported also by the Department of Rehabilitation.  The program is very intenstive, and  primarily for people who have received and exhausted all medically necessary treatments; not too many of us have been denied medical care for years; unless they are also injured workers, like me.
 .
I am hoping I will be able to return to work without any accommodations, upon completion of Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program in December.  The counselors suggest I may need a second year at Coastline to maximize my cognitive functionality, but that will be determined later in the year.  Transition planning (back to the community) is a big part of the program.
 .
Please also consider the PD advance request as part of the ADA accommodations request, as CNA has refused to provide medical care and TTD the first two years, leaving me in a very precarious situation, and financial stress is counter-productive to brain injury recovery.
 .
I understand that it may be just the defense firm “just doing his/her job” and “just following orders” but mis-statements with intent to deny medical care are frowned upon, as are omission of medical records to procure same result.
 .
Suggesting that the February 2015 Corvel modified recommendations will not be honored for some made up reasons by Defense, is unconscionable, as usual.  I did not hear back from you this week, so I must assume you concur with the defense bad faith and ill will?
 .
Ignoring all prior medical records with hopes that yet another neuro-psych eval will be from an industry leased doctor, is not quite right, is it?  I will copy you on my request to the Judge.
 .
If you will please review the evaluations and recommendations for treatment since 2012 from Dr’s DeGoede, Kang, Ponton, Chung, Patterson, Ikeda, Llowell, O’Brien, Kent, Zardouz et al….. you will see the gross mis-management of this case and my ability to recover and return to work, mostly at the hands of Grancell.  I understand that Daniel Elliott, former adjuster may have been inexperienced and therefore subject to intimidation by the Grancell crowd.  I talked with his boss once, very polite, and also did not sound intimidatable.  Ms. Mall’s incorrect statements to multiple doctors were leading, misleading and resulted in what appear to be extremely fraudulent conclusions by 3 doctors, and the whole CorVel people. Sad. Makes CNA appear complict, doesn’t it?
 .
With your experience, I highly doubt you can be intimated by them.  I trust that you will continue to help me distance from the abuse,harassment, intimdiation, bullying and the implied threats of the defense crowd.
 .
Please advise how soon I may expect the advance on estimated PD.
 .
Thank you.
Sincerely,
 .

PS:  An updated medical miles request is still forthcoming.  With TBI, sense of time is surreal, at best.   I have also learned, something your Training Department may be interested in, with TBI, when treatment is immediate and swift (interdisciplinary, including speech, occupational, physical therapies, and vision and auditory therapies as required, along with orthopedic issues with chiropractors and accupuncture, return to work further facilitates best outcomes.
 .
Unfortunately, I also learned that when an injured worker is prevented from return to work for more than 2-3 years, best outcomes are highly improbable.  Thanks.  Don’t let it happen again; I will work with Wyndham to ensure that it doesn’t happen to another Wyndham Employee, and with the injured worker community at large.  It would be nice to tell global audiences that CNA saw their egregious errors and have used this case to correct the wrongs; I realize that is highly improbable, so another route will be created, just like I must work on creating ‘new neuropathways’ to do things that used to be easy, that are now very very challenging.
 .
I am hoping Wyndham will create a position for me so that I can help clean up the Human Resources issues that have allowed your companies to harm me so, at great cost to me, and cost to shareholders and Wyndham, as well.

QUESTION: What’s up with the WorkComp “surveys”…Looks like “Big Money” is behind them. What do you think?  Maybe it’s a ‘good thing’?

 Do your own research; Draw Your Own Conclusions!  Here’s more to get started…

“Share Your Workers’ Comp Story”

http://www.propublica.org/article/the-demolition-of-workers-compensation

“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…

LinkedIn rankings  3 8 2015   12 12 pdt

Are you LinkedIn?  Here are some further thoughts, and do follow the above stories and reports…. be sure to read the comments.  It’s easy to see the industry provocateurs, huh?   More than one attorney and ‘investigative journalist’ who work for the insurance side have told me it’s all my fault I have been denied medically necessary treatments FOR OVER 3 YEARS…..   Well, you know #WorkComp….. that ‘small community’ has their own ‘little rules’ to follow……and they are well-paid for following orders, aren’t they?

#WorkComp is NOT an Employee Benefit….. It’s a killing machine based on the business model of

PROFITS BEFORE LIVES……  Is history repeating itself?  Ask any Injured Worker!

MARCH IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH… YEP… EVERYDAY IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS FOR A BRAIN INJURY SURVIVOR…

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.

Has anybody else been to a doctor who practices ‘functional neurology’? It’s very scientifically based… no guesswork, no drugs.

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.

Currently, I am most grateful for the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach…. an incredible organization with experts in the field of brains and compensatory strategies.

For what it’s worth…. more to follow…

InjuredWorkersUnited SILENT NO MORE
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW….. CARRY ON!

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW…. MARCH IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH…..

EVERY DAY IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS FOR SURVIVORS!

Every day is a fight for life for anybody stuck in the WorkComp System of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES……while those who know, conveniently look away from the corruption……falsely believing it could never happen to them….

“DO NOT WALK QUIETLY IN THIS OPEN AIR AUSCHWITZ”

DUTY TO ACT

“Enforcement by the state is a joke.” Does that AG know?

(Is that commonly called ‘collusion’? But wait, there’s more! The State of CA paid one insurance carrier more than $16,000 in 2014 for refusing to pay TTD in 2012/2013, and a Judge said that was ok too…. and too bad/how sad for the injured worker who is denied medical care and benefits…almost 3 full years now! Hmph.)

I have about 3 reams of some of those Corvel California denials…. very creative works of fiction…since Corvel took over the pattern of practice of denials of medical care approximately March 2013 for my 1/9/12 injuries.

Fraud notices
Workers’ Compensation Fraud Warning Notice 2014
Workers’ Compensation Fraud Warning Notice 2013
Workers’ Compensation Fraud Warning Notice 2012
Workers’ Compensation Fraud Warning Notice 2011

 

The first year, the defense firm and adjuster handled most of the denials (or simply ignored requests for medical care; by failing to deny and simply ignoring physician requests, it minimizes the paper trails, huh? Audit department has all my complaints. They assured me they will investigate. It’s been over 2 years now; seems like the clock might have run down, huh?

One of the funniest denials by Corvel was where they alleged they couldn’t reach the requesting doctor, and provided a phone number to a ‘recreation room’ at a TBI treatment center and alleged the doctor did not call back after they left a message there. The doctor had never even been to the location where they left the message. LOL…..

LI  #Cashcows #Moooooooove!

Sometimes Corvel apparently has people who pretend to be doctors, ‘calling on behalf of the doctor’ and said ‘staff’ are supposed be able to understand when a doctor explains why certain treatments are necessary.

I wonder if I could send those approximately 3 reams of Corvel creative deceptions to the Attorney General or somebody who gives a darn about Fraud and other…. impolite practices in WorkComp? Local DA indicated my complaints ‘had merit’ and that was that. :/ Still waiting to hear back from them, too. 😦

I would like to be a part of a RICO complaint to include, but not be limited to, Corvel.

mlk hitler germany

My case is ‘an open blog’ so if your staff or any readers would like my electronic collection of Corvel ‘materials’ I am happy to send to anyone…. if it will help facilitation of Congressional Investigations and #DomesticTortureReports…. and indictments and trials….  [send requests/comments to WorkCompLinda@gmail.com]

You know the old saying, WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW.

Ask about Workers Comp Gravy Trains… Corvel ain’t no caboose.

Hmmmmph, do they think this is JAPAN OR WHAT?  CENSORSHIP, NO PRESS FOR INDUSTRY PARTIES….  WHO FUNDED THAT PARTY?  Ms. Baker also apparently thinks that “only a few” injured workers in California are denied medical care and benefits…. yeah, when one injured worker heard her say that, the IW had to TWEET so she would NOT swear out loud….

Do you wonder if they know about the approximately $16,000 bonus paid in 2014 by EDD CALIFORNIA to CNA insurance FOR REFUSAL TO PAY TTD BENEFITS IN 2012 AND 2013…. as an apparent approved pattern of practice, yep, and a Judge said it wasn’t the injured workers money….so…IT MUST HAVE BEEN YOUR MONEY, HUH?  CONCERNED YET?  hmph.  PARTY ON……
