Hooray! #Wyndham #RTW Return To Work Prospects for #TBI Survivor

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Looks like I might get released to return to work soon!  Hoooray! Persistence Pays off! 

.
Hey, Imagine this! It’s summer time, people are thinking about vacations to escape from their lives and you own a timeshare, any time share. Nawww, for this example, let’s say you are a #Wyndham owner.
.
I don’t remember all the different levels of ownership (i have been off work for nearly 1,000 days; their doctors call it a ‘headache’ but real doctors call it a variety of themes on CLOSED HEAD INJURY, TBI, Concussion, Post Traumatic Concussion Post Traumatic Brain Injury Syndrome (PTBIS), but I do remember a goal for all salespeople is to get all qualified owners to “Platinum”….. Strategies include, with the help of “the closers”, to close ‘by any means necessary’…..
.
(Some of their doctors says it’s just a headache combined with age and poor anger management skills and a consistent “GAF” of 55-60…D’oh! )
.
So, you arrive at the sales office, anywhere, Big Bear, Indio, Sedona, Las Vegas Honolulu, Lahaina, Rome, Chicago, New York, your local resort area, wherever…. for your “FREE GIFT” in exchange for 45 minutes of your time.
.
Your sales agent does a stellar job of showing you how another investment of thousands and thousands of dollars will enhance your vacations and ensure fabulous vacations for you, your kids and your friends…for generations.
.
You politely decline the offer to upgrade.
.
The salesperson’s demeanor drops. Tears fill her eyes. She starts swearing at you, then sits on the floor and sobs hysterically, saying, “OMG, this is soooo goood for you. HOW CAN YOU SAY NOW” or words to that effect. You calmly say, “We’re leaving now, we want our gift. Good luck to you.”
.
And the sales agent, sobbing, says, ‘BUT THE DOCTORS SAID MY HEADACHES WOULD GO AWAY IF I TOOK ANALGESICS, AND IN DON’T HAVE A HEADACHE RIGHT NOW, AND THEY SAID MY CORRECTED VISION IS 20/20 SO THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH ME. THIS IS A GOOD UPGRADE FOR YOU, WHY WON’T YOU BUY IT?!!! LET ME GET THE CLOSER, I MEAN, LET ME GET THE MANAGER, HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET YOU TO UPGRADE….. SIT THERE, WE’RE NOT DONE, WE HAVE 20 MORE MINUTES OR YOU GET NO GIFT. YOU’RE FREE TO GO, WITHOUT A GIFT. YOUR CHOICE. WHAT WILL IT BE………….!!!!!!
.
You look at one another and quietly sit, waiting for ‘the closer’ with the big hammer.hammer this is not a drillTO BE CONTINUED……~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Awww, that wasn’t a real story, but it could be since the #TBI. The Defense Counsel mentioned that I have a remarkable ‘propensity for writing’ and he received approximately 4 boxes of legal material, and most of it was mail and emails from me. He insinuated he would not be reading it.He put our communications on a twice-a-month maximum, even though I assured him I don’t want no lawyer-pen-pal and that I just want medically necessary medical treatments for closed head injury of 1/9/12 (and consequent second impact injuries of 2/4/12 along with related orthopedic injuries; treatment authorization withheld for all since date of injury, and gross negligence and bad faith actions have been the norm.)

He also advised me to have no contact with the Insurance Adjuster nor my Employer, #WyndhamWorldwide.

Geeeez, I’m representing myself and if I was a real attorney, I think his request would be …… wrong. Whatever.

He said if I did communicate with them, he has instructed them to not respond. HOW ON EARTH AM I SUPPOSED TO GET APPROVED FOR RETURN TO WORK. NO DOCTORS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO RELEASE ME, AND I AM NOW NOT ‘ALLOWED’ TO CONTACT MY EMPLOYER TO ORGANIZE ACCOMMODATION REQUESTS AND A RETURN TO WORK DATE?

under the bus

Their doctors say there is nothing wrong with me, just an occasional headache, age, poor anger management when bullied and terrorized, and vision is corrected to 20/20 with therapeutic lenses prescribed, with complete report, by a Neuro-Optometrist. (that they refused to pay for, too! and have no knowledge of how vision is with the brain, not the eyes, d’oh! Neurologists are a goofy crowd, arent’ they…. If you get a brain injury, see a neuro-optometrist as soon as possible…by any means necessary…along with an acupuncturist….and any other ‘experts’ you can find…THE BRAIN IS A NEW FRONTIER….. GIDDYE UP)

So, yesterday I interviewed yet another attorney. I had an appointment with a guy attorney, and when I got there, they said I would meet with some lady.  Tsk. My eyes tear up, and off I went, sobbing an unable to talk. I said, “But I was referred to Mr. ___. Who is this lady? Is she an attorney? I just drove 90 minutes to get here, and they said we could do it over the phone, but I have had such bad experiences with attorneys, I wanted to look him in the eye before considering releasing my case to him or his staff”….sobbing commences….. and the very nice receptionist brought a box of tissues.

It was a ‘casual day’ for the attorney, but he came out to meet me, and chat a few minutes, and assured me that his colleague would be a powerful ally, if they took my case. I stopped crying, met the other attorney, and found her to be very helpful, kind, knowledgeable and street wise. They declined to help; not because there’s no case, but because it’s so convoluted and I know it better than anybody, so they encouraged me to continue to represent myself. D’oh. Oh well. She also suggested that I am far better off than most people who come to their offices. THAT’S A BUMMER, BECAUSE A HIGH IQ TBI SURVIVOR APPEARS ‘NORMAL’ (at times! ;D ) but it’s like people can’t see the neurons mis-firing, so they falsely allege there is ‘no immediate danger’.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
FURTHERMORE….. Swearing and Emotional Outbursts….seem to be a common occurrence for for some #TBI Survivors. Here’s a real story:

In March, in meeting yet another ‘head doctor’…. I had a 2 pm meeting. Even to get around in towns I know, I need to fully prepare. I print a google map, and use GPS, give myself an extra hour to get somewhere, I call it the ‘lost factor’ and I cross my fingers. I arrive at 1:45. I park and find the right building in the complex. I find the suite number. There are painters everywhere. THE DOOOR IS LOCKED. Fighting panic, I calmly call the doctor’s office to confirm date, time, location (sometimes I get those way wrong!)…. I GET VOICE MAIL. Fighting panic, I ask a painter for help. “Could you, please, knock on the door louder? They have to be there. I have a 2pm appointment!” while fighting back tears. The kind painter smiles, knocks and says, “There was someone here earlier, maybe they will be right back.”

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

TEARS FILLED MY EYES. I SLUMPED TO THE FLOOR AND WITH BACK UP AGAINST THE WALL, SOBBED HYSTERICALLY.  (This is becoming a pattern; I’m told they ‘have a drug for it’…. D’oh!!!) A Property-Management-Looking Lady walks by with a Painter and I stop them and say, “DO YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY NUMBER FOR THE DOCTOR?” With raised eyebrows, looking at me sobbing on the floor, she calmly says, ‘Is there an emergency?’ I said “YES. I HAVE A 2 PM APPOINTMENT AND IT’S AFTER 2 PM AND THE DOOR IS LOCKED”…..Sobbing…..waiting for a response. She said, “I may have a number in the office, I’ll be right back.”

SO, THEN ALONG COMES ANOTHER LADY, and looks at me sitting on the floor, sobbing hysterically. It’s the doctor. She says, “The door was unlocked, I had to go out for a moment.” Still sobbing, I said, “NO IT ISN’T UNLOCKED. THE PAINTER EVEN TRIED BOTH DOORS.” Apparently, the earlier patient locked it on his way out. I GOT UP OFF THE FLOOR, WALKED INTO HER OFFICE, AND WE PROCEEDED WITH THE FIRST VISIT, AS IF NOTHING WEIRD HAD JUST HAPPENED.

HALF-WAY THROUGH SHE SAID, ‘You know, that little event outside is NOT UNCOMMON for someone with a head injury.’ I gasped and said, “OMG, it happens more and more often. Last time I was at Court, it was heinous with the fraud and bullshit and when I got outside the Court building, I found a bench and sobbed hysterically, as if my life was over. They even called Security to see if I was ok. Then, the nice Judge walked by, a little later, as I was trying to get to my car, and all my files had spilled out of the cart on the steps to the parking area. He kindly helped me to the car and told me not to drive until I was more composed…It was a 2 hour drive ahead. So yeah, the Judge has seen my meltdowns, in and out of Court!

#############

BUT, THE #WYNDHAM, #GRANCEL#CNA doctors say I’m just fine, so by logical deduction, that would lead me to believe I’m about ready to be returned to work.

The Head Doctor has been out of the country…. and in April, she indicated I had about a 6 month window to get medical treatment, or this is as good as it gets.
TIC TOC THANKS #WYNDHAM. LET’S GET THAT RETURN TO WORK PROGRAM IN MOTION, AND WE’LL SEE IF I NEED A CRYING ROOM OR SOMEPLACE ‘SAFE’ AS AN ADA ACCOMMODATION.

Or, as previously mentioned, create a new position so I can help your HR Departments ensure that the horrors I have been subjected to by the gross negligence of your staff and the terrorists activities of your agents happen to no other American Workers. Who knows, maybe this horrible series of events can encourage #Wyndham TO LEAD THE WAY IN LEGITIMATE HANDLING OF WORK COMP INJURIES. IT WILL COST LESS IN THE LONG RUN…. REMEMBER REMEMBER….SEVERAL DOCTORS HAD ADVISED THAT …WITH MEDICALLY NECESSARY TREATMENTS…I MIGHT HAVE RETURNED TO WORK IN 2012.

www meme 16

The Orthopedic Doctor’s report of June 6, 2014 has been delayed, and his office said, “OUR HANDS ARE TIED. THIS IS AN ORTHOPEDIC OFFICE AND YOU NEED A BRAIN DOCTOR.” Quietly, I said, “I know they have threatened to take your off their referral list if you continue to ATTEMPT to get medically necessary treatment for my well diagnosed brain injuries. I requested repeatedly a brain specialists, and the Defense, in collusion with the WorkComp Information Officer, insisted that I see your doctor, Orthopedic Surgeon, and that HE WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ORGANIZING MEDICALLY NECESSARY REFERRALS AND TREATMENT BY SPECIALISTS. IF YOU COULDN’T DO THAT, YOU SHOULD HAVE DECLINED IN FEBRUARY 2013, NOT NOW, AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS OF FAILURES TO GET MEDICAL CARE FOR ME. YOU TELL THE DOCTOR HIS REPORT IS NEEDED AS I AM STILL FIGHTING FRAUDULENT DENIALS OF MEDICAL CARE, AND HIS LAST REPORT WAS OMITTED FROM THE CURRENT REQUEST BY THE ADJUSTER AS WELL. THE DOCTOR KNOWS WHAT TIME IT IS. TELL HIM WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW.

I’M HANGING UP NOW, AS I AM BEGINNING TO LOSE MY TEMPER. WE SPOKE FRIDAY, AND NOW IT’S WEDNESDAY. WHERE’S THE REPORT? IT WAS DUE WEEKS AGO.

ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS NOW…..SAD BUT TRUE:

#WorkCompFRAUD BUSTERS: OPEN LETTER TO LUCY’S Virtual and NON-VIRTUAL FRIENDS, TBI Status Update,

OPEN LETTER TO LUCY’S Virtual and NON-VIRTUAL FRIENDS, TBI Status Update

July 29, 2013 at 1:45pm

OPEN LETTER TO LUCY’S Virtual and NON-VIRTUAL FRIENDS…I hope all is happy, healthy and well with you all.
~
As most of you know, on January 9, 2012, I slipped on ice at work and fell and conked my head pretty hard, and I ain’t been ‘right’ since.  😕  I got a ‘second impact’ conk on February 4, 2012, which does not seem uncommon as a consequence of an untreated head trauma.
~
Conks on Conks are not a good thing for the brain.  I have been denied reasonable and appropriate medical care by my employer, WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE (the world’s largest vacation ownership company) the whole time.  The denials of medical care are criminal, and I have been unable to find COMPETENT legal representation, and the merry-go-round of fraud and deceptions is spinning fast.
~
I’m a little better, but my cognitive impairments suck….
~
My requests for ADA accommodations have been ignored, denied and used as weapons against me.  It took over a year and half for the shoulder pain to be addressed and diagnosed as a major tear, denied with other denials, no surprise from the defense crowd.
~
Note of encouragement from a retired Judge, in her 80’s:

“Keep it going Lucy. Don’t let up. You know your case better than anyone.  Since we have an evil government and corruption everywhere, you must realize you are witnessing a small part of it.”

Crooked, drunk, under-the-influence and/or psychopath lawyers, adjuster and doctors and others!  Yech!

~

The law states an employer is REQUIRED to provide immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care for an industrial injury.  I didn’t even get to leave work early let alone see a doctor…. and they had a good laugh at my fall with snow all over me in the sales huddle.

~

The boss laughed and said, “ewwwww, you have #Fukushima Rads all over you now.”  [Timeshare humor 😕 Comment because I had advised earlier that snowflakes cling like scavengers to the radioactive isotopes, strongly hitting the West Coast of the USA (and the rest of the world!) since March 2011, and are to be dodged by any means necessary. ] pied piper of sheeple I attempted to do a sales presentation after the conk on the head, and all I remember is being embarrassed and saying repeatedly to the people in front of me, “I’m sorry I’m so confused.  I slipped this morning and hit my head real hard.”  (Was I ever glad they didn’t buy anything…. no way could I have handled the contract paperwork!)   Yo, Boss Guys and Co-Workers….. next time an employee hits their head on the job, call 911 or race ’em to the hospital…… you might save a life.

~

Physician requested authorizations for medical care have been denied repeatedly by non-physicians, other than a few scattered chiropractic treatments, 8 physical therapy treatments for neck only, and 17 psychological support sessions, all but 4 focused on maneuvering thru the extremely confusing maze of deceptions, mis-information and denials of medical care and and taking action on poor legal representation.  The last 4 sessions (July/August 2012) focused on ways to fake-people out so they will not suspect I struggle with brain injury now, and he also said, NEVER TELL ANYBODY YOU HAVE A BRAIN INJURY, IT COMES WITH A STIGMA, so buy some electronic gadgets to help you make it through life and keep the secret.  [Violation of ACOEM TREATMENT guidelines for head trauma, TBI, concussion, PTSD etc.)

~

12 sessions of brain-based and scientifically measurable functional-neurology treatments were self-procured in Palm Desert after the first 10 months of denied medical care, to the tune of $10,000+ in November/December 2012.

~

That was about 40 hours hands-on doctor time.  Dr. Jaudy adheres to the the principles of DO NO HARM, and HUMAN SUFFERING MUST END, and does all things possible to facilitate proper diagnosis and healing.  Sincere thanks and appreciation for the medical help at JAUDY TREATMENT CENTER; I’ll be back!!  :D]

~

The defense attorney terminated that medical help.  Attorney #2 attempted to coerce me to accept a $100,000 settlement offer (less his 15%) in November 2012, forfeiting any future medical care, any other benefits and ps I had to agree to quit my job in order to secure money to obtain medical care on the plan he and the defense counsel organized when I was allegedly appearing for a ‘deposition’.  I ain’t no quitter!

The blogs have more details on the denials of medical care along with the diagnosis.

`

The medical expenses (MRI, EEG, additional chiropractic, acupuncture, vision therapy, speech therapy etc.) have been UNreimbursed, along with UNreimbursed medical miles since April 2012 (over 9,000 miles driven in square circles to see non-brain-injury specialist doctors) but the insurance company doctors apparently get approximately $4,000 per bogus fraudulent report.  [Sorry, Dr. Kent, you’ll have to get your $4,000 for a report from another unsuspecting injured worker being sacrificed by Corporate America….this Injured Worker has got the provider’s numbers now… and a good list of names for the DA, if interested….]

`

My IQ is probably down 15-20 points, but it was pretty high to begin with, so that brings a whole new set of challenges after the traumatic brain injury. I used to think and process like a quad-core i5 computer, now it’s more like a 286.  Bummer.   I can still type like a maniac!! YAAAY.  😀

`

I never found a competent attorney to help me after making the mistake of not hiring a work comp specialist with brain injury expertise, and even did a mass-appeal to some CALIFORNIA SUPER LAWYERS with brain-injury expertise.  The guys I hired clearly acted like a brain injury is like a broken arm or a little ‘carpel tunnel syndrome.’ They must have missed the class that discussed how the brain is the operating system for the whole body. D’oh. Insurance company neurologists don’t even seem to know that the brain does the seeing, not the eyes.  D’oh.

`

There is apparently a “two-lawyer superstition” in their field that says if an Injured Worker is stupid enough to hire the wrong attorney in the first place, too bad how sad, good luck.  I  found two more non-competent attorneys to abuse me who attempted to make a quick buck for themselves without any medical help, reading or work or brain injury expertise.  Malpractice and negligence…. but whose gonna prosecute?!

`

The defense attorney is now moving in for the final kill now…..and she is PE….Pure Evil.

I am relying on a LEGION OF ANGELS to help me, somehow.  RELYING ON MORE MIRACLES. It’s been a very ugly fight, and I dismissed attorney #2 and #3….. and I am now fumbling along on my own…. I’m now just TAKING IT TO THE STREETS…..It may serve to help another Injured Worker.

DIAGNOSES reported by multiple Physicians;

Requests for authorizations for treatment and further evaluations

denied repeatedly by Adjuster and Defense Counsel, non-physicians

854 Closed head injury, 784 Headaches, 310.2 Post concussive syndrome, 850.1 Concussion with brief loss of consciousness, 850.9 Head Concussion, 309.81 PTSD, 310.2 Post concussive syndrome, 780.93 Closed Head Injury with amnesia, 921.00 Contusion (left orbit), 750.90 Concussion, 959.01 Head Trauma, 959.01 Cognitive Changes following head trauma, 850.0 Concussion, 959.00 Head Trauma (Contusion x 2) with Impaired Memory, Speech, Balance and Vision, 850-854, 959.01 Somatic/cognitive dysfunction and emotional dysfunction, 310, 310.8, 438 Mild cognitive dysfunction, memory processing,, 850 Mild TBI positive lapse of consciousness, 310.20 Post Concussive Sydrome, 309.28 Mood Disorder secondary to Post Concussive Syndrome, 959.01 Head injury,  Lobe Disorders: frontal, parietal, cerebellar dysfunction, motor dysfunction, segmental dysfunctions, Closed Head Injury with Ongoing Sequelae, Psychological sequelae, possibly secondary to industrial injury, 959.01 Closed head injury with cognitive dysfunction and speech dysfunction, 784.00 post traumatic headaches, brain based vision impairments, brain-based vestibular and balance disorders + secondary to head trauma, NECK, BACK, Shoulder PAIN and related ICD-9 codes

Many doctors have made bunches of money writing reports about my brain injury, requesting treatments, which have been denied, and then I am sent to new doctors who request treatments and further evaluations that are denied, and now the defense attorney is going in for the final killer blow, with a situation that ‘there is no medical evidence of my injuries’ based on denied medical evaluations and treatments by their own hands, and their neurologist [Thanks a bunch, Dr. Bijan Zardouz]  saying I’m fine, just need an over the counter analgesic for the headaches.

`

Their forensic psychiatrist [Thanks a bunch, Dr. James O’Brien] alleges if there was any evidence of industrial concussion I would be entitled to medical care, but as best he sees it, I’m old, maladjusted with poor anger management skills.

An EEG I self-procured in April 2012  from a phD doctor in Rancho Mirage has also been evidently used as a weapon to deny medical care….it’s dated April 3, 2010…. and the actual eeg print outs have the correct date of March 26, 2012….  No MD’s have seen the EEG print outs…..except one I recently gave a copy to, but he is “too busy” to write a report of his evaluations of me and my medical reports and too busy to request further evaluations, although I did mention my life may depend on it.

`

I recently obtained a Court Order to compel the Defense to include approximately 300 pages of willfully and maliciously omitted medical records.  At the hearing she whined that there were a few others she didn’t have, which I told the Judge I had provided, but would be happy to provide again.  She then twisted that story to suggest I have been doctor shopping and withholding medical records that the Judge ordered me to provide immediately….. oMG.  A true psychopath??!

`

The defense has regularly, maliciously with apparent intent to fraudulently omitted approximately 300 pages of medical reports and has denied 99% of all medical evaluations and treatments requested by evaluating doctors, thereby creating a fraudulent scenario of INSUFFICIENT MEDICAL EVIDENCE.

`

Same defense and insurance company adjusters only provided doctors the April “2010” narrative of the EEG, alleging evidence of prior substantial head injury.  Legal counsel repeatedly failed to ensure all medical records were included for review by all medical evaluators, and failed to notice the “2010” date on the EEG narrative, and failed to ensure the EEG print outs were included, and failed to facilitate evaluation with neurologist with TBI expertise and failed to provide further EEG and other evaluations and treatments.

ENEMIES OF AMERICAN WORKERS AND ENEMIES OF HUMANITY??  Judge them by their actions, huh??  If it looks like a psychopath, acts like a psychopath, and lies like a psychopath, it’s probably a PSYCHOPATH.

`

The typo by the EEG provider just recently made it to my awareness, and I asked the phD doc for a letter of correction, and she could only manage a electronic-post-it comment on her letter, that won’t even print.  The defense attorney puts it at the bottom of the index, making sure there is no reference to evaluating doctors that it actually took place in 2012.

`

I called the doctor this weekend, in follow up to a further request for a supplemental professional report with a fresh date and advised that her typo had caused me tremendous harm and has contributed to denial of medical care and weapons against me. eeg lynda wells date correction electronic note When Dr. Wells answered her phone (I thought I would get voice mail in my follow up to email) and she went on a rant about how she didn’t believe her mis-dated report has caused any harm and she was on vacation, having drinks with friendss, and that I had to “RESPECT THAT SHE IS ON VACATION” (and has been since about the 19th of July or sooner) and she can’t and won’t write a new letter.   [Thanks a bunch, Dr. Lynda Wells! ]Capture eeg normal adult eeg   Capture eeg 3

Selfish psychopaths everywhere, huh?

the silence of our friends

As a Wyndham/WorldMark owner/employee/manager/other, you may (or may not) appreciate my creativity…..I’m fighting for my life…… Here’s a blog… I’ve done a few so far…..:) Thanks for your friendship.  I sincerely appreciate your kindness when the injury first happened……..

Love, Lucy

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.

doctor drug pusher

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.

liberty see hear say no evil

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.

wc attacking people with disabilities

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??

“The Truth is like a Lion.  You don’t have to defend it.  Let it loose. TRUTH WILL DEFEND ITSELF.”

The WC case in question has been mis-handled by 3 idiot attorneys looking to make a quick buck rather than do the right thing (as in facilitate reasonable and appropriate medical care…. sending a brain-injured worker to a series of Orthopedic Surgeons just somehow doesn’t sound right, huh?  D’oh  Their neurologist, a guy from Tehran, suggested ‘over the counter analgesics’, and don’t come back).

The injured worker is currently representing herself….. with dramatic loss of executive function and other cognitive impairments….. but she can type like a maniac!!  ;D

If you know someone with legal expertise, please let Lucy know at LucyOccupy@aol.com or leave a message at 1 760 368 7236.
It’s California Workers Comp Case ADJ8181903.  🙂

If you know anybody at the National Enquirer, 60 minutes, 20/20 etc AND YOUR FAVORITE FB GROUP WALLS…..  Lucy’s got names and facts and will not be hushed.  EVERYBODY KNOWS SOMEBODY MAIMED AND KILLED BY THE WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAIN providers.  FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS STAY IGNORANT.

Denied medical care is lethal in a brain injury….. so…. nothing more to fear.  Bring ’em on.  Between psychopaths, gangsters, white collar criminals and Fukushima’s 1,946 known lethal isotopes, it’s been a tough day.

If you don’t know someone who can help, see Lucy AND ALL surrounded by Light, and a LEGION of Angels, and keep the faith.  Let the TRUTH do its work.   WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW, till last gasps.

Brain  viral mashable more

Also, review the early blogs and wall posts in ASK ABOUT FUKUSHIMA NOW and LUCY OCCUPY SAID and ALL REACTORS LEAK ALL THE TIME and get yourself up to speed on the ELE triggered by #Fukushima.  It ain’t over people.   Wake up.  THINK LOCALLY. ACT GLOBALLY.  OCCUPY VIRTUALLY….. TILL LAST GASPS.  TAKE CARE OF ONE ANOTHER.

Maybe Scott Olsen’s group has some good legal teams??  Lucy has found a couple good brain doctors and would love to share resources.  If you know Scott, have him or his people get in touch with Lucy, would you??

There used to be an Anon-Legal Group….. I wonder if they might have any good lawyers familiar with such matters?? The maiming and killing of American workers seems to be part of the ol’ depopulation events happening everywhere, huh?  Please pass along Lucy’s SOS, if appropriate.  It’s sort of an immediate life-‘n-‘death beyond #Fukushima issue.

A civil rights group, or class-action group might be helpful too.  Lucy’s friend with the Work-Comp issue needs some legal help NOW.

The evil is horrendous.  The untreated conk-on-the-head, followed by a second-impact blow when the first conk was untreated and medical care has been denied and self-procured care interrupted since 1/9/12…. apparently shortens a life-span by 7-8 years.

The A2 lady lawyer is moving in for a kill now.  She can sure write fiction, and seems to fit the profile of a true psychopath.  Fiction in a Courtroom is called other things.

A ‘seer’ suggested there may be orange jumpsuits in the future for a ring of doctors and lawyers and insurance providers…..for fraud and collusion to commit fraud to deny medical care to an injured worker in California.   EEGs will be on the blog soon….. people need to have more info on TBI.  Arm yourself with facts.  Ask a Soldier.

Here’s more info  ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS
http://t.co/oaiDkijq8Q … and yeah … it’s Lucy’s head…. the first conk was 1/9/12 and second impact was 2/4/12, and before racing to the emergency room, she made sure all the #Fukushima posts were out so you would have the most current info available, in case she didn’t come back from the ER.

She also sent her employer, #WyndhamWorldwide, a little note that ….. denial of medical care to an injured worker is…. not very nice and against the #WorkersComp law.

#Fukushima triple #nuclear meltdowns in progress since 3.11.11. STAY OUTTA THE STREETS……. YOU KNOW WHY.

lion truth

Workers Comp Doctors, Lawyers and Gravy Train Riders – $4,000 per bogus medical report?? D’oh!

Remember the initial evaluation of this Brain Injury Survivor and #Wyndham Worldwide employee,  by one of the early doctors:

APRIL 2012 –

Judgment and Insight:  The patient’s judgment and insight seemed intact. Patient appeared to be aware of how the injury had affected cognitive functioning and discussed taking steps to remediate for areas of perceived deficit….

Test Behavior: The patient was also frequently tearful, becoming emotionally distraught when perceived unable to perform various tasks as well as perceived they would have been done prior to injury.  Also becomes tearful when talking about various professionals who were perceived as not caring for medical needs appropriately.

COOPERATION:  The patient was very cooperative.  Completed all tests administered without complaint.

EFFORT:  Patient appeared to put forth best effort on all tasks administered.  Objective testing also gave no indication of purposeful exaggeration or distortion of symptoms….

protected by angels

Which deteriorated dramatically…..

….through 8,696 dangerous driven miles of muddling courageously to each and every appointment, hoping somebody would help find lost cognitive abilities,  seeing just a few good doctors, who DO NO HARM, and being exposed to an army of incompetent, unscrupulous, criminal doctors, and/or doctors without expertise  in traumatic brain injury, on the whole, and the outrageous denials of physician requested specialty medical evaluations and treatments form Traumatic Brain Injury, to the following $4,000 report insurance company doctor opinion:

April 2013 –

 “IMPAIRMENT:  RESIDUAL IMPAIRMENT DUE TO CHRONIC MALADAPTIVE COPING MECHANISMS, PREEXISTING PERSONALITY CONFLICTS, POOR ANGER MANAGEMENT SKILLS.”

and another that stated:

“Disability in Regards to the Head Region:  The patient is status post trauma to the head region with development of post traumatic head syndrome, which is best described as slight.  It is characterized by the presence of headaches, memory difficulty, dizziness, visual disturbance, and difficulty with the sense of smell.

Objective Factors For Consideration of Permanent Disability in Regards to the Head Region: None

FUTURE MEDICAL CARE:  The patient should have access to plain over-the-counter analgesics for relief of her headache.  However, she states she is not interested in taking any medication.

lion truth

A Fraud Complaint is being filed with proper authorities for the above $4,000.00 AME / QME reports and ‘pack of lies’ and inaccuracies and negligence.

~~

Both doctors, in addition to their colleagues in the ‘small circle of worker comp providers’  made their reports based on incomplete medical records and both doctors refused to accept and consider omitted medical records in order to provide a supplementary report based on currently available facts.  The insurance company denial of authorizations for evaluations and treatments, as requested by multiple physicians, further gives way to serious suspicions of extremely fraudulent activities, in collusion with highly-paid non-expert opinions.

~~~

Neither doctor has any known expertise or practice in diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury, evidenced by the foregoing remarks, and cut ‘n paste thick reports of non-sense based on no facts or scientific evidence.  Shame.

lisa and bart the whole damn system is wrong

How long does it take to “break” even a brain-injured worker???

The Fourth Reich apparently has a fully subsidized army of nazi-type doctors maiming, drugging and killing American workers —– 21st Century SONDERKOMMANDOS, killing on behalf of Corporate Greed.

nazi-found-in-usa-a-michael-karkoc-386x217

See the list below of ‘doctors’ who have profited by the Brain Injured Worker’s head trauma below.  Some tried to help, some fought a little, others put the file in the ‘too hard’ pile.  All made money….. while the Injured Worker loses hope and life.

See the specialties of each doctor…. all but a handful had any business treating an Injured Worker with Traumatic Brain Injury, as they are not in compliance with legal requirements to have doctors only treat what they are competent and trained to treat, rather than writing reports based on guesses and non-expertise, in order to make a mortgage or car payments or pay their dealers.  Shame.

LEGEND TYPE
BOLD, times new roman is from Defense firm 12/12 “Medical Index” provided to IW at WC Hearing of 12/18/12 wherein missing documents were again discussed. Corrections to  Urgent Care MD entries…defense shows 01/09/12…the first doctor on day of injury was Chiropractor, 01/11/12; non-bold entries indicate omitted records…. SEE earlier dated indexes showing adding in of some reports by defense, but not all
Adjuster indicated neither he nor defense counsel would dig through the files to find missing records, there’s ‘just too much paper’  in June phone call.

SUMMARY OF DOCTORS SEEN FOR TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES: Draw your own conclusions. Hint. The brain oriented doctors have all been ‘self-procured’ as seeing orthopedic surgeons for traumatic brain injury just ‘doesn’t make sense’ to any thinking person.

roll my eyes out loud

2 chiropractors (one declined to treat due to paperwork confusion), 1 neuropsychologist, 3 clinical psychologists, 9 MDS (3 family practice, 5 orthopedic surgeons [for brain injury, d’oh!] 2 neurologists (1 with speciality in epilepsy/fybromyalgia and another with specialty practice in Electromyography and Electrodiagnosis), and others: 1 DC with specialty in functional neurology, 1 accupuncturist, 1 EEG neuro-feedback phD (who provided the only EEG, self-procured, unreimbursed), 1 physiatrist, 1 speech therapist (MA, CCC-LS LSP), 1 physical therapist, 1 optometrist, 1 neuro-optometrist, 1 vocational rehabilitation vision specialist, 1 doctor of unknown credentials who repeated tests taken within 30 days, causing ‘practice effect’ in results, and 1 forensic psychiatrist.

Requested but denied medical evaluations and treatments, since January 2012:

EEG, EEG Neurofeedback treatment, MRI – brain, cervical, upper back, right shoulder (brain self-procured, cervical authorized Apr 2013, Shoulder authorized July 2013), Continuing chiropractic (6 sessions authorized late Jun 2013, no providers willing to accept WC paperwork risks for failures to pay; requested seeing initial chiropractor and first doctor seen on date of injury); neurology evaluation with expertise in brain injury, physiatrist, functional neurology treatments, Neuro-Optometry evaluation and Vision Occupational Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy (6 sessions – cervical only- authorized 2013) – no extensions; 

Labor Code 4610 seems to be clear that “only a physician competent to evaluate the specific clinical issues that were within the scope o the physician’s practice can modify, delay or deny treatment plans.  The insurance company actions to deny specific clinical evaluations are then used as ‘evidence’ of lack of evidence to support demand for medical care.   Talk about a shell-game and Worker Comp Fraud!  Furthermore, the defense counsel has a pattern of omitting medical records to further skew the ‘medical evidence’ and to further deny reasonable and appropriate medical care.

Knight v. United Parcel Service and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, 71 CCC 1423   In this case, the Board held that an employer or insurer’s failure to provide required notice to an employee of rights under the medical provider network (MPN) that results in A NEGLECT OR REFUSAL TO PROVIDE REASONABLE MEDICAL TREATMENT RENDERS THE EMPLOYER OR INSURER LIABLE FOR REASONABLE MEDICAL TREATMENT SELF-PROCURED by the employee.

Krueger v. Republic Indemnity Company of America, 28CWCR44 says I have the right to change treating doctors at any time pursuant to Labor Code S4060.  It also rules that AD Rule 9785 is invalid.   The case says AD Rule 9785 is invalid because it is inconsistent with the right of an injured worker to the “free choice of physician” guaranteed by Labor Code S4600.  Therefore, under this case I do not need to request a QME evaluation in order to obtain medical care.  Under the laws as set forth in the court case Emporium-Capwell Co. v. WCAB (Tidwell) 48CCC801 (1983), I have the right to change treating doctors at any time after waiting the appropriate time from the date of injury. 

Rhiner v. WCAB (1993), 4 Cal.4th 1213, 18 Cal.Rptr.2nd 129, 58 CCC 172 (California Supreme Court Case).  This very important case establishes that when an insurance company is guilty of unreasonable delays in paying benefits, the applicant is entitled to a 10% penalty based on the dollar amount of the entire benefit (“the entire species of benefit”) and not just on the improperly delayed portion of the benefit….past, present and future.

Under LC S5814, applicant may be entitled to a sum equal to 25% of the value of the treatment or service denied, if the doctor requires authorization for a medical procedures or treatment and the insurance company unreasonably delays or refuses to authorize it.

cosmic intent

How can the lawyers involved claim a right to any compensation for their unconscionable ignorance and failures to adequately represent an American with Diagnosed AND TREATABLE Disabilities…… ??

They failed to perform legally contracted for representation, and must be subjected to disciplines and sanctions, not rewarded for their parts in the horrors the injured worker has been subjected to.   Is there no policing or continuing education required in the legal gutters??  Minimally, they must be prevented from ever representing another brain-injured worker until and unless they are educated to competently do so.  To lose their license to practice law in California would be too light a sentence, from the perspective of the injured worker, whose injuries were not alleviated, nor was reasonable and appropriate medical care facilitated by any of the three lawyers.Bellini   Hydra  OWS

Lawyer #1 –— wasn’t really a lawyer—the lawyer did a 3 second-meet-and-greet and the firm’s office administrator does the intake, provides legal opinion, determines the type of doctor for primary treating physician (in this case, it was determined that an ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON was required for the brain injury.)  That orthopedic surgeon wrote down brain injury complaints as ‘headache’ and stressed, by way of word and action example, to expressed and tearful concerns about the brain injury, “Look, if I kicked you in the leg, it would hurt, but it wouldn’t mean you were injured”.  0.o     Then he proceeded to recommend a chiropractor in his office, twice a week.  When that was met with a “That’s a hundred miles round trip, twice a week.  I have a brain injury.  I need to see a doctor for my brain, and I can’t drive that much.”  He then asked, “You’re not working are you?” “Then, you can drive.”   0.o    That issue escalated quickly and an attorney friend (who had sadly referred to this firm) and a retired judge encouraged immediate dismissal and deal with the Bar later.

grumpy cat stupid

Lawyer #2 — wasn’t really a brain injury expert, and his workers comp skill level was minimal.  He dismantled the first ‘treatment team’ the injured worker had painstakingly organized, with the adjuster, to include a clinicial psychologist, a neuro-psychologist, a brain-MRI, and one neurologist (who sadly specialized in epilepsy and fibromyalgia, not traumatic brain injury) and was a total nightmare on his own.   Lawyer #2 has ‘his own’ doctor, who was a 3 -hour drive from the injured workers home, had a lesser credential than the first testing neuro-psychologist, only saw the injured twice in 8 months, and had ‘chat therapy’ sessions provided by one of his associates, of unknown credentials.  He did write with a Mont Blanc pen and had a very fancy office with great view of Pasadena, through the smog.  He had a plan for further neurology evaluations, EEG neuro-feedback treatments, neuro-optometry and vision therapy….. NONE OF WHICH HAPPENED.

PTP, upon receipt of a threatening letter from defense attorney about his alleged failure to ‘write a report’ on time (which defense attorney had been sent, with proof of service, multiple times….patterns).  After that, he determined injured worker was close to healed and could go be a greet or clerk.  Clearly sexist-discrimination in his consult, suggesting that a cognitively impaired woman could be a clerk or administrative support person.  He was clearly looking to keep his QME license clear, and to not overly-annoy the defense counsel.

~~

Then lawyer #2 alleged to prepare for a deposition, when all along he had apparently been seeking a premature settlement, which he secured an offer for $100,000 in November 2012—AND ATTEMPTED TO COERCE INJURED WORKER TO ACCEPT IT, as there was ‘no evidence’ of injury …………. except for the diagnosis and requests for treatment and denied evaluations.   Injured worker had a enough remaining marbles and advised that a settlement offer could not be considered without a valid diagnosis and prognosis.  He got paid for the aborted deposition, he made sure of that.  Injured worker has yet to receive mileage reimbursement for even that.

~~

grumpy cat  keep talking  i always yawn when i am interested

Injured worker then without any delay immediately sought a brain injury evaluation and commence self-procured treatment, then dismissed the attorney, who clearly had no clue of diagnosing or treating and representing a brain injured worker.  The initial consultation was free, and it was such a relief to speak with an intelligent doctor who was very familiar with brain injury, and better yet, he has training in rehabilition and functional neurology, scientifically evidenced and measurable medical treatments.

Lawyer #3 was hired in January 2013, at the onset of more threats of more legal-mumbo-jumbo and deceptions and continued denial of medical care by the defense attorney, a non-physician, from a family of ‘bone doctors’. (Skulls and Bones??!!)   #3 was a ‘cantankerous old goat’ resting on laurels of yesteryear, and had a staff that couldn’t even read a simple list of ‘omitted records’  and failed to keep any agreement with injured worker, and against wishes of injured, agreed to an AME not with a neuro-psychologist, but with a forensic psychiatrist of very questionable behavior and judgement.  Lawyer #3’s office failed to ensure all medical records were provided to AME doctors, as had been adamantly requested by IW at the time of hire.  This lawyer was arrogant in his response to the omitted records by stating ‘there is no conspiracy to omit records. You have major psychological issues and I suggest you get help immediately.’

~~

The injured worker responded in writing that psychological support was one of the often denied requested medical authorizations, and was he suggesting self-procured treatment, even though his office had no clue on how to deal with self-procured medical treatment, medical and miles reimbursements, or finding other than an ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON for a brain injury as a primary, and looked for a ‘pain specialist’ for the brain component….. CLUELESS AND VICIOUS.  The only ‘butt kicked’ was that of the injured worker.

12 Frequently Asked Questions
about
California Workers’ Compensation Law

1.   Now that I got hurt on the job, can I make that down payment on the Mercedes?

2.  What about all the wages I’m losing?   And that I can’t bowl or have sex anymore?   I’m losing WAY more than what Workers’ Comp. is paying me!   That’s not fair!   Can they get away with this?

3.  Ok, I filed my claim and, after the insurance company stopped laughing, they DENIED it!   This bothers me. What about medical treatment? What can I do to make them live to regret how shabbily they’ve treated me?

4.  I’m sure my medical problems are caused by work but I can’t pinpoint a specific incident.   Am I out of luck?

5.  For how long can I get medical treatment, Answer Man?

6.  What if I can’t go back to my job?   Is that when I make the call to Dr. Kevorkian?

7.  My doctor’s report is a worthless pack of LIES!   How can this quack have the “final word” about my injury?

8.  I hate my job AND my boss.   They’re both driving me NUTS!   My spouse can’t stand me … and I kick the dog.   How do I file a STRESS CLAIM??????

9.  Wait a second… Color me CONFUSED!   I can’t do this alone!!   I need help!   How?

10.  We all know lawyers are just below pond-scum on the food chain (nothing personal). How can I prevent these low-lifes from RIPPING ME OFF (if I’m unfortunate enough to need one to help me)???  

11.   I have a lawyer right now and I’d be better off cramming long, sharp objects into my eyes!   How do I dump this idiot?   How do I get my file?     Can he still get a fee from me?   Could he take my soul if I truly believe he’s Satan?

12.  How could there be only 12 Frequently Asked Questions???   That seems an odd number.   Are you odd?   There must be more than 12 questions to ask!   Haven’t you left out a lot I should know?   Why?

http://workinjury.com/12-faq.htm#12

The above is dated information, but the principles are sounds and sassy.  The California Workers Comp laws changed dramatically in January 2013, so do your own research, draw your own conclusions, and remember, it’s hard to find a competent workers comp applicant attorney, and if you want a smart one, with cognitive abilities and knowledge of brain injuries, good luck if you don’t hire them on the first shot.  Nevermind that brain injury causes poor judgement and slow processing….. Lawyers seem superstitious (or stupid and greedy) and seem to have a monopoly on ‘first hire’ is it, as few others will take on a botched up legal mess, not even when a life depends on it.

~~~

How do lawyers look away when someone pleads for life-saving help??  Pitiful, evil and pitiful.

Sonderkommandos, on the whole…. and they seem to think they’ll get out of this alive.

8,696 MILES  TRAVELING IN SQUARE CIRCLES TO ‘VISIT’ VARIOUS APPARENTLY Insurance and Legal ‘SHOPPED DOCTORS’

…. in order for the insurance company to obtain bogus reports, based on the incompetence and lack of expertise in neurosciences and functional neurology.  The various apparently ‘shopped’ reports from various providers of the Workers Comp Gravy Train provide ammunition for the insurance company defense counsel to fabricate an image of ‘no injury’ or ‘100% recovery from injuries’ without benefit of any medical treatment of evaluations in accordance to LABOR CODES.   Legal counsel was knowingly or unknowingly complicit in the deceptions, and failed miserably in properly representing Injured Worker, without expertise in representing a brain-injured client.   All three dismissed law groups appeared to compare a TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY to a broken leg, and applied the same theories of legal practice.

y u no see lies so obvious lies

The unreimbursed medical miles since April 2012 to date amount to $2,649.00, plus maximum penalties to be ordered by the Court.  The requests were submitted in a timely basis, 8 or 10 times to both the Adjuster and Defense Counsel, and each subsequent follow up is met with “we didn’t get it” “please send it again” “we thought we paid that” “we don’t have it” “what medical miles are you inquiring about”.   The same fabricated responses hold true for requests for self-procured medical treatment, to-date in the amount of approximately $13,000.00, plus penalties and perhaps trials and jail-time for some of the providers.  The county district attorney offices have been funded with several million dollars for fiscal year 2014, in order to FIGHT WORKERS COMP FRAUD.  Let’s hope they focus on the real criminals in the system, who are maiming and killing injured workers, all the way to the bank.

An unreasonable failure to timely pay reimbursement for mileage to and from medical appointments is a basis for an award of a 10% penalty against the entire medical treatment portion (species) of benefits, past present and future.  Payments after 30 days of request for reimbursement may be unreasonable, and it is up to the court to decide what constitutes a reasonable or unreasonable time to reimburse an applicant for covered expenses.   Avalon Bay Foods v. WCAB (Moore) 63 CCC 902 (California Supreme Court) says that when an insurance company is 60 days or more late in paying medically related transportation expenses (mileage reimbursement), there is a Labor Code S5814 penalty owed on all medical treatment benefits (of which mileage is a part).

 stupid  no stupid people beyond this point

~~

Medical care that had been self-organized [due to MPN issues, for another blog], in conjunction with Adjuster,  was terminated because Injured Worker IMMEDIATELY requested a second neurologist–with an expertise in TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY — rather than “epilepsy and fibromyalgia”.  The first neurologist was an absent-mind-professor type, who even had to borrow the injured worker’s pen to complete the ‘visit’.   Without medical evidence, said ‘professional’ ‘offered’ preventive ANTI-SEIZURE pharmaceuticals, with liver killing side-effects, amongst others.  This practice was deemed unfounded by the medical profession in — 2004….. to immediately offer anti-seizure meds when a 2nd impact blow to the head occurs after an untreated concussion/traumatic injury.   Said ‘professional’ also insisted on a ‘SLEEP DEPRIVED EEG’ 3 weeks into the future, which are known to CAUSE seizures.

~~

Since Injured Worker had very high ‘pre-morbid’ intelligence levels, and still had sufficient street sense to have “WTF” sirens go off at the bizarre demand, contrary to ‘rest the brain’ by other doctors.  The danger was apparent to the brain-injury survivor….that to drive 220 miles, SLEEP DEPRIVED WITH A BRAIN INJURY, was simply INSANE.   The insurance company adjuster wanted this doctor to be the new ‘primary treating doctor’  [over the injured workers’ dead body, we presume!].  Injured worker then hired Attorney #2.  On Easter Sunday, 2012, said doctor called injured worker to again discuss liver-and-other-organ killing pharmaceutical, ‘seizure medications with mood elevators’ to also help address [dumb down] the apparent anger issues.  Said doctor was offended when injured worker replied, “I don’t take drugs.”

pharma kills

He muttered something about ‘these are not drugs, they are pharmaceutical medicine’.   There was no ‘meeting of the minds’ in this doctor-patient arrangement and in retaliation, more than one month after the 15 minute visit/evaluation, this neurologist [referred to as the ‘Neuro-Nazi’ by injured worker and friends!] so he then threatened that if a prescription was not accepted and called in to a local pharmacy, he would report the patient to the Department of Motor Vehicles, to have driver’s license revoked, which he did.

doctor drug pusher

The injured worker fought the good fight, and intends to include this doctor in a report for fraud investigations.  Furthermore, the demanded ‘Sleep deprived EEG’ could only be done in his office, by his technician [for his profit.]   BOOOOOO.  DANGER DANGER.

~~~

The second neurologist was ‘authorized’ more than a year later, and his specialties were… non-existent.  His medical opinion and expensive report indicated complete healing, magical as it may seem to all, and that the only continued treatment suggested was “over the counter analgesic.”  The football crowd may have a good laugh at that doctor.

~~~

The “forensic psychiatrist’ could not keep the dates or facts straight in his $4,000 bogus report, and clearly indicated, regarding injuries sustained in 2012:  “”Neuro-Psychiatric symptoms include a loss of consciousness on February 4, 2013, and a history of a closed head injury on January 9, 2013.  Her loss of consciousness was apparently due to a swollen brain and interrupted chiropractic care.”  For treatment, this arm-chair-rocket scientist, further states:  “Treatment should only be provided industrially if the Finder-of-Facts finds some evidence of an industrially-related concussion injury.”   [The skewing of facts is probably due to the short time spent with patient, although under penalty of perjury, he alleged he spent 7 hours with injured worker.  Uh oh.  Fraud Alert!  Perhaps this doctor should be drug tested.]

wc occupy psychiatry lucy

Further stated:  ‘IMPAIRMENT:  Residual impairment due to chronic maladaptive coping mechanisms, preexisting personality conflicts, poor anger management skills.”

owl perspective idiot stupid
Lawyers without knowledge of brain injuries evaluations and treatment must be prevented from dangerously mis-representing BRAIN INJURED WORKERS, pretending to have expertise which they clearly do not. A brain injury is not the same type of case as a broken arm, and requires different levels of smarts and expertise. A TBI shortens life span by 7-8 years when immediately treated….shortens further when untreated. THE BRAIN RUNS ALL BODY SYSTEMS…a malfunction in one system indicates other malfunctions requiring interventions.

DOES THIS MEET ACOEM GUIDELINES FOR TREATMENT AND EXPERTISE for BODY PART INJURIES INCLUDING BRAIN, HEAD, EYE, NECK, BACK, SHOULDER, OTHER BODY-PART SYSTEMS??  Draw Your Own Conclusions!

The WORK COMP Gravy Train of doctors/providers/legal counsel sent the trusting brain-injured worker to many apparently ‘shopped doctors’ without any brain-injury expertise , (causing brain injured worker, at 10 months post-injury, to SEARCH FOR AND  SELF-PROCURE reasonable and appropriate medical care —> because ‘authorities’ refused to provide reasonable and appropriate medical care).  This list includes evaluations ONLY, no treatment  (other than the stated exceptions of some chiropractic, some chat-therapy with clinical psychologist(s),  and a few cervical physical therapy sessions: : 2 chiropractors (1 declined due to paperwork/authorization madness and apprehensions payment would be withheld by adjuster), 2 neuropsychologist (1 declined to treat when Injured Worker appeared for appointment,  due to Work Comp, although it was later discovered said doctor was the only local neurologist on alleged MPN list), 3 clinical psychologists, 9 MDS (3 family practice, 5 orthopedic surgeons [for brain injury, d’oh!] 2 neurologists, and others: 1 DC with specialty in functional neurology, 1 accupuncturist, 1 EEG neuro-feedback phD (who provided the only EEG, self-procured, unreimbursed), 1 physiatrist, 1 speech therapist (MA, CCC-LS LSP), 1 physical therapist, 1 optometrist, 1 neuro-optometrist, 1 vocational rehabilitation vision specialist, 1 doctor of unknown credentials who repeated tests taken within 30 days, causing‘practice effect’ in results, and 1 forensic psychiatrist.

Knight v. United Parcel Service and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, 71 CCC 1423   In this case, the Board held that an employer or insurer’s failure to provide required notice to an employee of rights under the medical provider network (MPN) that results in A NEGLECT OR REFUSAL TO PROVIDE REASONABLE MEDICAL TREATMENT RENDERS THE EMPLOYER OR INSURER LIABLE FOR REASONABLE MEDICAL TREATMENT SELF-PROCURED by the employee.

 

Krueger v. Republic Indemnity Company of America, 28CWCR44 says I have the right to change treating doctors at any time pursuant to Labor Code S4060.  It also rules that AD Rule 9785 is invalid.   The case says AD Rule 9785 is invalid because it is inconsistent with the right of an injured worker to the “free choice of physician” guaranteed by Labor Code S4600.  Therefore, under this case the injured worker need not request a QME evaluation in order to obtain medical care.  Under the laws as set forth in the court case Emporium-Capwell Co. v. WCAB (Tidwell) 48CCC801 (1983), the injured worker has the right to change treating doctors at any time after waiting the appropriate time from the date of injury. 

Under LC S5814, applicant may be entitled to a sum equal to 25% of the value of the treatment or service denied, if the doctor requires authorization for a medical procedures or treatment and the insurance company unreasonably delays or refuses to authorize it.

RICO???  

October 23, 2008

http://abelllaw.typepad.com/kentucky_employment_law/2008/10/injured-workers-may-sue-under-racketeering-law-based-on-scheme-to-deny-them-workers-compensation-benefits.html

Injured Workers May Sue Under Racketeering Law Based On Scheme To Deny Them Workers Compensation Benefits

“Injured workers may pursue civil claims for damages under the federal racketeering law known as RICO (Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations) based on a scheme to wrongfully deny them workers compensation benefits the Sixth Circuit ruled today in Brown v. Cassens Transport Co., No. 05-2089. The plaintiffs, a group of six injured workers, claimed that their employer, Cassens Transport Company, the company that administered Cassens’s workers compensation claims, Crawford & Company, and a doctor, Saul Margules, “employed mail and wire fraud in a scheme to deny them worker’s compensation benefits.”  More specifically, the injured workers alleged that “Cassens and Crawford deliberately selected and paid unqualified doctors, including Margules, to give fraudulent medical opinions that would support the denial of worker’s compensation benefits, and that defendants ignored other medical evidence in denying them benefits.” ….

“…

lisa and bart the whole damn system is wrong

The court also addressed two other RICO issues.  First, that reliance by the injured workers on defendants’ fraudulent misrepresentations was not an element of a civil RICO claim based on a Supreme Court ruling in Bridge v. Phoenix Bond & Indem. Co., No. 07-210 (June 9, 2008).  Second, the workers pleaded a compensable RICO injury because “the defendants’ fraudulent acts were a ‘substantial and foreseeable cause’ of the injuried alleged by the plaintiffs: the deprivation of their workers’ compensation benefits and expenses for attorney fees and medical care.”

This case outlines a path by which injured workers may obtain relief from schemes by employers, insurance companies and doctors aimed not at dealing with the true and real facts but at wrongfully denying benefits to truly and legitimately injured workers.  It should also raise a flag of caution for those insurance companies and doctors that reflexively oppose and deny the claims of truly and legitimately injured workers….”

  • The attorneys and adjusters and doctors handling some of the Wyndham Worldwide Workers Compensation claims evidently ‘WANNA BE FAMOUS’.   Let’s accommodate them.
  • Bad Reputation
    Isn’t it a shame how 99% of the lawyers give the whole profession a bad name.
  • The annual report indicates that the top leadership at Wyndham ‘earn’ millions in annual income.   They are apparently willing to pay insurance company doctors, biased, incompetent in specific clinical issues, thousands and thousands of dollars to fabricate erroneous reports, based on omitted, selective medical records and denied evaluations by doctors with expertise in specific injuries, and use same as weapons of denial of reasonable and appropriate medical evaluations and treatment.
  • Wyndham top leadership is apparently of those willing to LOOK AWAY as injured workers are denied medical care and their lives are destroyed.  Does Wyndham give it’s employees “the TIME SHARE SALUTE”?? with a silent, ‘NEXT!’ ??   So it seems.
  • $4,000 paid to a doctor for a fraudulent report guarantees ‘repeat business’ for the doctor and provides the insurance company with ammunition to deny medical care, and keep the ‘repeat business cycle’ returning for more and more evaluations in the “small circle” of workers comp providers, where ‘everybody knows everybody’.  (That surely sounds like a RICO violation, doesn’t it?)
  • the truth doesnt change
~~~
  • Pleas for help from the Wyndham Worldwide Management staff fall on deaf ears, perhaps to cover up the early faux pax of failures to properly notice regarding alleged MPNs and interference with medical care, causing severe further injuries to workers.
  • Perhaps the silence is due to the failure to have even called for an ambulance on the date of injury and the demand that the worker continue the shift, for the sake of the ‘company bottom line’ and ‘stats’ and then allow the injured worker with a head trauma drive down a snowy mountain road to self-procure medical help from “any doctor who will accept workers comp insurance.”
  • What was YOUR experience in obtaining immediate and continuous medical evaluations and treatment?  How would you rate the doctors you have seen?  Have you filed complaints with the appropriate agencies??

  • Does the District Attorney need to address YOUR WORKERS COMP CLAIM AND DENIALS OF REASONABLE AND APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE??  How long did you wait or have you been waiting for medical care?

Without fear or caution??

    ~~~

    MEDICAL EVALUATIONS BY:  Orthopedic evaluations were authorized and demanded with 4 different QME Orthopedic Surgeons [FOR A HEAD TRAUMA/BRAIN INJURED WORKER!!].  The injured worker repeated requested a primary treating physician with a brain injury expertise, which was denied, and said denial was supported by the local Workers’ Compensation Information Office.   The insurance company repeatedly refused to authorize MEDICALLY APPROPRIATE, ACCORDING TO ACOEM GUIDELINES, EVALUATIONS AND TREATMENTS for head trauma/brain injury/neck/back/shoulder TREATMENTS ALTHOUGH REPEATEDLY REQUESTED BY TREATING DOCTORS.

    ~

    The insurance company continues to deny medically appropriate treatments, and disputes self-procured medical evaluations from brain experts.

    ~

    The WORK COMP Gravy Train of doctors/providers the injured worker has been SENT to by various ‘authorities’ , (or  was SELF-PROCURED because ‘authorities’ refused to provide reasonable and appropriate medical care) includes evaluations ONLY, no treatment  (other than the stated exceptions below over nearly a year and a half from date of injury)…: 1 chiropractor, 1 neuropsychologist, 3 clinical psychologists, 9 MDS (3 family practice, 5 orthopedic surgeons [for brain injury, d’oh!] 2 neurologists, and others: 1 DC with specialty in functional neurology, 1 accupuncturist, 1 EEG neuro-feedback phD (who provided the only EEG, self-procured, unreimbursed), 1 physiatrist, 1 speech therapist (MA, CCC-LS LSP), 1 physical therapist, 1 optometrist, 1 neuro-optometrist, 1 vocational rehabilitation vision specialist, 1 doctor of unknown credentials who repeated tests taken within 30 days, causing ‘practice effect’ in results, and 1 forensic psychiatrist.

    pharma kills antidepressants may cause

    All of the doctors provided timely and relatively accurate reports, with some extreme exceptions, requesting a variety of medically necessary treatments, EXCEPT FOR  SEVERAL DOCTORS with the STATE QME DESIGNATION.  The Neurologist, Forensic Psychiatrist, and Clinical Psychologist WHO DETERMINED THERE WAS EITHER NO INDUSTRIAL INJURY, OR A MIRACULOUS SPONTANEOUS HEALING after receiving a threatening letter from the defense counsel, or a MIRACULOUS SPONTANEOUS HEALING AS A RESULT OF SELF-PROCURED APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE WHICH COST THE INJURED WORKER APPROXIMATELY $10,000.00.  The three most dangerous “QME” designated evaluating  providers opined, without scientific evidence and with slight physical evaluation, that there was or had been NO SIGNIFICANT HEAD TRAUMA, NO CONSEQUENCES OF TBI, CONCUSSION, OR ANY OF THEIR COLLEAGUES’ STATED DIAGNOSIS.

    SOMEBODY IS COMMITING FRAUD!!!  IS IT THE QME CROWD, OR THE DOCTORS WHO ATTEMPTED TO PROVIDED LEGITIMATE, REASONABLE, APPROPRIATE AND MEDICALLY NECESSARY MEDICAL TREATMENTS AND FURTHER EVALUATIONS???

    Exasperated with the sheer evil of the denials of medical care, the injured worker advised defense counsel and insurance company adjuster, in writing, that TBI is known to shorten life-span by 7-8 years, WHEN TREATED, as the brain regulated all body systems.  WITHOUT CARE, THE INJURED WORKER’S LIFE SPAN CONTINUES TO BE DIMINISHED.  The injured worker further advised that the defense counsel and insurance company adjuster and their firms would most assuredly be named for the CAUSE OF DEATH on the INJURED WORKER’S DEATH CERTIFICATE, sooner rather than later.   The injured worker also cited case law indicating, from the Ralph’s case, that insurance company and corporate liability does not end with death of the worker, so be prepared.

    DENIED EVALUATIONS AND TREATMENTS INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO and are convoluted further due to defense counsel’s apparently willful, malicious omission of medical records to skew, confuse and defraud in order to deny, delay, postpone medical treatments (or just real bad record keeping and tracking):

    ~   DENIED:

    EEG, EEG Neurofeedback, Speech Therapy with Cognitive Remediation, MRI-BRAIN, NECK, BACK (neck authorized approximately 15 months after injury, IW self-procured Brain MRI, Back MRI still pending, Shoulder MRI reluctantly authorized approximately 17 months after injuries), Functional Neurology Assessment and Treatment, Physiatrist Assessment and Treatment, Neuro-Vision Optometry Evaluation and Treatment, Neurologist Consult competent to evaluate the specific clinical issues involved, and where these services are within the scope of the physician’s practice), Occupational Vision Therapy, Physiotherapy/PT (reluctantly authorized approximately 15 months after injury)

  • One of Wyndham’s ‘approved’ neurologists insists that proper treatment of TBI, traumatic brain injury, is best handled with ‘over the counter analgesics’.  The football crowd would probably cringe at that treatment plan, don’t you think?  Even the ‘school nurse’ would have to cringe.  Said doctor is not trained in the USA, which could account for the bizarre recommendation and lack of professional expertise.
  • brain concussions football
  • The same neurologist finds it hard to grasp that vision is a function of the brain, not the eyes, and has the same challenge with other functions, including speech and memory.
  • 19006204-occipital-lobe--female-brain-anatomy-lateral-view
  • Another of their revered neurologists believes that concussions are best treated immediately with liver-killing epilepsy medications, prior to any diagnostic testing whatsoever.
  • One of their forensic psychiatrists opines that anger over no reasonable or appropriate medical treatment over 17 months is due to “maladjustment” personality issues and further opines that because injured worker is unable to remember if/for how long there was a loss of consciousness at the initial fall there was no loss of consciousness at the first or ‘second impact’ trauma.
  • anger managment and stupid people
  • This same doctor alleges injured worker ‘burns pets and peeves’ rather than’ pots and pans’due to memory losses, and is therefore maladjusted.  Said doctor alleges in a $4,000 report that he spent 7 hours with injured worker when in fact he spent approximately 1 hour, and delegated the balance of the ‘forensic investigation’ to some other kind of doctor, probably with a lower billing fee.  If the said report was not so life-threatening, it is ridiculous enough to be almost funny.
  • doctor strike
  • One of their orthopedic surgeons,  of the 5 orthopedic surgeons the injured worker was sent to for brain injury, believes brain injuries are best treated with expensive ‘at home’ ultra sound wands at a billed cost of approximately $1500, without instructions.  Should injured worker apply to frontal and parietal lobes and leave out the occipital lobe or include?
  • One of their clinical psychologists believes and recommends that impaired speech and loss of executive functions are best remedied by ‘accommodations’ to encourage no-vocational rehabilitation to enable said head-injured worker to return to work as a greeter, or seek employment at a place like CHINA DIRECT.
  • wc occupy psychiatry
  • A clinical psychologist with a failed plan of recommended treatment gave up requesting treatment early on, and once the defense counsel sent a threatening letter for an alleged delay in a progress report, the report curve went from TTD, TTD, TTD, TTD (still no authorized treatment other than chat-time with an associate of unknown credentials to learn tricks to mask and cope with brain injuries) TTD TTD (upon receipt of threatening letter from Defense, perhaps putting QME designation at risk,, with no treatment, the report magically transformed to RTW WITH ACCOMMODATIONS AS A GREETER OR CLERK since injured worker can’t follow directions, has memory loss, is easily distractible, and quite angry at failure to receive appropriate and requested medical care authorization.  “Should see a psychologist after work”.    (TTD=temporarily totally disabled)  (RTW = return to work)  0.0
  • A drug and/or alcohol test was probably in order for THAT doctor, as it was amongst the more incoherent fabricated reports.
  • medicine
  • The Defense attorney has a habitual pattern of omitting medical records, thereby obtaining skewed reports, used to deny legitimate and appropriate medical evaluations, and thereby eventually deem the injured worker a ‘doctor shopper’ and totally healed, if there ever was injury at all.
  • (Injured Worker disbelieved that doctors can bought, but evidently, it is a common practice in the WC realms, as identified by the forensic psychiatrist, with apparent first hand-knowledge and experience.)
  • The practice ‘smacks of fraud’ but injured worker’s counsel could not read a simple list of ‘missing records’ and determined the injured worker had ‘severe psychological issues’ demanding immediate treatment (which had been denied repeatedly) but the lawyer’s diagnosis was ‘delusion regarding conspiracies to omit records’ and proceeded to throw injured worker ‘under the bus’ in order to expedite a quick settlement without dealing with medical diagnosis or treatment and other details required for recovery.
  • Injured worker responded with a picture and a few words to all whom the matters concerned:
  • under the bus
  • Reimbursements for self-procured medical care and medical miles are mandated to be paid within reasonable periods of time, yet the defense attorney and insurance adjuster claim they have not received requests for  thousands and thousands of dollars, sent more than a half-dozen times, certified, regular, priority mail, with and without proof of service.   They  always close those discussions with ‘the check is in the mail’ (but subject to severe penalties, if injured worker can ever get past the WC Information Officer in front of a Judge).
  • chiropractic vs medicine
  • The crowd of ‘doctors’ with the WC Gravy Train designation of QME – Qualified Medical Examiner– seem to be the most outrageously compensated and of dubious credentials and competencies (and citizenship).  Perhaps the DA’s offices would find it beneficial to commence rigorous investigations with all QME designated doctors.  The good ones will stand out, the bad ones will stand out even more.
  • pharmaceuticals
  • Wyndham’s ‘people’  apparently frown on any treatment recommendations by licensed self-procured physicians who are competent to evaluate the specific clinical issues involved in the medical treatment services.  While it is a violation of law, the same insurance company adjusters wildly delay and deny reasonable and appropriate medical treatment for months and months and months, in spite of the fact that  the law precludes non-physicians from modifying, delaying or denying such expert competent treatment requests and recommendations.
    • Section 4610(e) provides “NO PERSON OTHER THAN A LICENSED PHYSICIAN WHO IS COMPETENT TO EVALUATE THE SPECIFIC CLINICAL ISSUES INVOLVED IN THE MEDICAL TREATMENT SERVICES, AND WHERE THESE SERVICES ARE WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THE PHYSICIAN’S PRACTICE, REQUESTED BY THE PHYSICIAN MAY MODIFY, DELAY, OR DENY REQUESTS FOR AUTHORIZATION FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR REASONS OF MEDICAL NECESSITY TO CURE OR RELIEVE.”

Lucy Occupy and Friends are working on a project to expose and expunge some of the insurance company administrators, defense attorneys, doctors (trained inside and outside of the USA, with questionable credentials), Applicant-lawyers, third party providers and others of the Workers Compensation System that are profiting while maiming and killing workers around the USA with blithe disregard of legal and ethical obligations to provide medical care to injured workers.  It is said that it’s nearly impossible to find a ‘good, competent Applicant attorney’ since the money is on the Dark Side/the Defense Side, being paid to facilitate maiming and killing injured workers, protecting interests of the corporate giants.  Remember David and Goliath.  Remember, we do not….Forget.

See details there on the  Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains  FB PAGE as to what one group of “Applicant Lawyers” in central California has done to ‘take on’ the system in California that is killing US Workers ….. asking for indictments for the murder caused by the insurance company denials and postponements of medical care by another major employer, THE KROGER COMPANY DBA RALPH’S GROCERY COMPANY.  
  •  This seems to be a pattern of behavior and conduct by the ‘big employers’ and as indicated below, Ralphs Grocery Company has apparently caused the death of at least one of their workers, and at least a crowd of Applicant Attorney’s has taken the matter directly to the District Attorney for criminal indictments against the insurance adjuster and company.

Ralphs is a major supermarket chain in the Southern California area and the largest subsidiary of Cincinnati-based Kroger. It is the oldest such chain west of the Mississippi River. Ralphs also operates stores under the Food 4 Less and Foods Co. names in California.

Capture WYNDHAM AND RALPHS  JUNE 2013
These failures by Wyndham Worldwide, by Ralphs, and by YOUR Employer to provide immediate, appropriate and reasonable medical care are in absolute defiance of laws aimed to protect injured workers in America.  The acts are unconscionable and demonstrate a callous indifference to the often catastrophic consequences of  delays, inaction and outright neglect as managed with layers of protection by their defense counsel and insurance providers.

The offices of District Attorneys have been provided millions of dollars for fiscal year 2014, at least in California, to ‘fight workers compensation fraud’ and they must be called into immediate action to address the fraud taking place by doctors, lawyers, insurance companies on behalf of Global Companies, the “Employers” such as WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE.

Lucy placed a couple of calls and they must be very busy, as her calls have not yet been returned.  Some DA sites indicate they are fully cognizant of ‘rings’ of racketeering doctors using the Workers Compensation vehicles in violation of RICO laws, and that many of said rings come from ‘outside’ national boundaries….yes, the doctors.

Several individual leaders of Wyndham ‘earns’ millions of dollars annual income.  Doctors within the Workers Compensation systems and aligned with Insurance objectives, are paid huge fees to write inaccurate (at best) medical opinions based on fabrications and omissions of facts, in evidenced efforts to delay, postpone and minimize medical treatments, while building ‘mill-type- medical practices that offer non-legitimate repetitive ‘evaluations’ without benefit of reasonable and appropriate treatments.
