Who is Lucy Occupy and What’s Up With WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW #OccupyVirtually #WorkComp #Nuclear and ?

Recently, someone said, “someone told me that linda died. who are you?”

L: That sounds like some serious troll work. If your source is the same one that says I don’t have a brain injury, there you have it. That’s actually pretty damn funny…. Thanks…. I’m fighting the good fight, and I will expose those fake injured workers, in due time…. They harm too many of us… they prey on the weak and the needy…. and probably have a nice retirement account at Langley? Tell me more, if you feel like it. In any event, thanks for the alert.

x: “Well I was wondering about this too cuz I thought you were for real but they’re telling me that you died and your son has taken your place doing your writing. Since I’ve never spoken to you or seeing you I’m hoping you’re alive because that would be awful if you weren’t. I figure out who it was that said that you clue you in.”

Subject: Linda Ayres vs. Wyndham Worldwide et al / CORVEL NON-RECOMMENDATIONS AND CLAIM EVALUATIONS FOR 2013

Dear Elena,

Thanks for the tip on DWC-IMR Maximus processes. I hope it helps! We’ll see! Another favor?

I am compiling information on all the non-recommendations and claims evaluations since date of injury, 1/9/12. Apparently I do not have the 2013 correspondence, from CorVel, as much of it was sent by your company to the former defense counsel, after you had been properly noticed to cease and desist. Some of it, if I ever received it, I may have simply misplaced. The pieces I have found do not show proof of service to me. You may recall my emails regarding violations of my HIPPA rights and continued anyway.

If you will kindly send me everything for 2013 I would appreciate it so I don’t have to sort it with the pieces I do have.

Will you please email me Friday morning the complete Non-Recommendations and Modifications and Claims evals for all of Dr. Darren Bergey’s requests for treatment in 2013. Everything from Ballard Brain Rehab, to chiropractic, to accupuncture, to neurology, psychology, neuro-psychology, neuro-optometry and more.

Prior to Dr. Bergey, 2/2013, all failures to provide medical care were handled directly by both the defense law firm and the adjuster, both non-physicians, cleverly avoiding a paper trail. The information and assistance office was of no help to me, and in fact, when I inquired how to deal with the grossly inaccurate and possilby fraudulent reports (per DIR definition of Fraud with intent to deny medical care) ( of Dr. Zardouz, Dr. O’Brien, and Dr. Kent, I was advised to simply write a note saying,”I object to these reports.” I did as instructed, but the fraud was never addressd, and these faulty reports are continuously used as weapons of continuous and egregious harm to me. That is being dealt with shortly, as there are interested Tasks Forces in the Offic of the DA, not the office number Dr. O’Brien dared me to report him to. It’s been over 3 years and I am continuously denied the right to be heard by a WC Judge on my right to medical care. I’m not the only injured worker self-represented. That must change, and it may take Congressional intervention. At least their looking now, huh?

By copy, if Fred Sachs, adjuster, has medical evidence of 2012 denials of requests by Dr. Daniel DeGoede,, Clinical Psychologist I was sent to by the Wyndham Worldwide Employee Assistance program who was the initial PTP and worked closely with Daniel Elliott to organize the first neuro-psychology exams and then briefly Dr. Uppal, appointed by the first law firm I retained, and then the requests by Dr. Marcel Ponton, Clinical and Neuropsychologist, appointed by the Court after a hearing in June 2012 exposing that the MPN was never properly served, and seemed not to exist at all.— PLEASE SEND ME THE 2012 DETERMINATIONS OF DENIALS OF MEDICAL CARE… Doctors didn’t deny, it was non-doctors, but there has to be a process to deal with such matters as well.

The adjuster and I worked very closely in February 2012, trying to find providers in the field of neurology and neuropsychology. Daniel cheated Dr. DeGoede out of several agreed upon and authorized sessions, and left me without any support whatsoever. Had care been authorized in 2012, I would not be writing this email today, and I would not have lost the last 3+ years of my life to such a vile system. Oh well, it is what it is, huh?

Investigative Journalists have taken a further interest in my dilemma, and with all the buzz about CorVel and ProPublica etc….. I want to be able to provide them with all the facts, so people can draw their own conclusions about my case, and the discrimination of injured workers with disabilities like mine, my age, and my gender. . I need the materials also because my civil rights are being further violated by the defense, and the Department of Justice has invited me to share more information, which I will gladly do.

By copy to the Defense firm, while you have repeatedly advised that you have no expertise in ADA and employment law, continued harm caused by your firm will be handled by the proper authorities in due course. Google FEHA, ADA, and Brain Injury.

Ok, pretty please send those 2013 CorVel non-recommendations that I am not copied on and don’t have to me electronically, and was not provided by the PTP, so I didn’t learn much about Maximus till recent corruption articles.

BTW, many of your superiors seem to have quite an appreciation for my LinkedIn profile. Please let them know there is no reason to stalk my wall, I accept all invitations to LinkUp…. friends and enemies alike. The Defense attorney and the Wyndham Risk Manager seem to have a relationship that goes ‘way back’ and I am now fearful that such a conflict of interest may be a factor in the continuous harm to me, and that department’s repeated failures to communicate with me and it’s failures to conduct a long over due claim audit. Michael would never even help me when I asked for help with reimbursements and TTD payments. Awful. That New Jersey politician is taking some serious heat for promoting the CorVel allegations of employee fraud being “40%”…. I suggested it might be an internal statistic, on the low side. Corporate fraud is of extreme interest in the news today. Let’s give them the facts on my case and let the public draw it’s own conclusions, shall we?

I hope most of you never have to experience the extreme horrors this WorkComp charade has put me through.

When YOU tell the simple horrors of YOUR work comp experience, do the experts try to dismis it as hyperbole?  Must be comforting to them, yes?

McCrory’s Fraud Statistics Questioned by Experts http://ncworkcompjournal.com/2015/03/30/mccrorys-fraud-statistics-questioned-by-experts/

What would Dr Yamacrook do? “Win?Win?” situations..  IME’s 





Do you think this means that because CNA refuses to get me training and treatment so I can return to work (it’s been over 3 years now) that they are breaking this law? And making my employer, WyndhamWorldwide a party to such a law breach?

Looks like disabled people are allegedly already protected… hmmm….just found some things on FEHA while looking for other things…. I have no interest in going to law school to save my life, but surely they can see the value of the state run program, COASTLINE ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY PROGRAM….they have been helping people with Brain Injuries return to the community and work for over 25 years. All CNA can approve is some chiropractic, acupuncture and evaluations for over 35 doctors…. for brain injuries? D’oh! ain’t that nothing!

“12940. It is an unlawful employment practice . . . [f]or an employer, because of the . . . , physical disability, mental disability, . . . of any person, to refuse to hire or employ the person or to refuse to select the person for a training program leading to employment, or to bar or to discharge the person from employment or from a training program leading to employment, or to discriminate against the person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. “ (Gov.

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 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.
WORKCOMP SURVIVOR WRITES:  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.

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.
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.

Dr. Hilda Chalgujian, Primary Treating Doctor since Orthopedic Surgeon made it very clear he doesn’t deal with brains….. a fact known when Grancell and WCAB insisted that my PTP be an Orthopedic Surgeon, not a physiatrist, neuro-psychologist, neurologist, psychologist, chiropractor, or accupuncturist.  Looks like it’s on you, me, Dr. Hilda and Stewart to move things along…with Tina and Mike.   What say you now?  I hope the ProPublic / NPR Surveys and articles are helpful; I submitted my stories to them and to OSHA.

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.
