“#ProPublica is Hiring an Engagement Reporter”

“Assignment: Give us a few thoughts on how you would have gone about re-imagining and executing a project we did last year about the demolition of worker’s comp protections around the country. Again, how could we have connected to the people actually impacted by the story, and how could they have contributed to the project?”


Can’t we all just work together? Chat with your local neutral party mediators and structured settlement teams, and see just how many CASES YOU CAN RESOLVE BY THE END OF THIS YEAR, WOULD YOU? Blog about saving lives in the process. Share with your colleagues how you did it! We all know all the stories of failures to protect Injured Workers.

‘All of This Because Somebody Got Hurt at Work’ – ProPublica

Follow this blog to be sure you don’t miss it! (It was derailed after onslaught of May diatribes from industry mouth-pieces, attacking individuals and groups of Injured Workers (in apparent retaliation to the ProPublica 2015 report…Injured & Disabled Workers are easier targets for abuse and disparagement than fisticuffs with a behemoth investigative reporting empire like #ProPublica and #NPR, huh?

Bullying at it’s very lowest by those who profit most by the endless pain and suffering of injured and disabled people

What’s YOUR #WorkComp Story? Use these questions as a guideline in your own blog, or feel free to submit and resubmit your story, and know it will be rendered ANONYMOUS  https://myworkcompcoach.com/whats-your-workcomp-story/ 
Fresh, more inclusive, questions coming up soon!

We have not had a chance to pretty up these questions but we’re working on it, along with some other ‘rebranding’ efforts that were also stalled while fending off national personal disparaging attacks (that also graciously included several links to my blogs, thanks to David DePaolo, RiP)

The #Sedgwick Institute kicked me out of their little LinkedIn group for presenting the linked questions back in May and for asking for their professional input. Pffffft. 

A couple of Injured Workers with reading challenges submitted their stories then had a fit because their names were not to be used, a decision by consensus of all parties who have already submitted their stories. ANONYMITY PREVAILS 

ANONYMOUS PRECEDES UNANIMOUS.

Same group of injured workers threatened “legal action” for my attempts to get stories safely out & into the #Workers Compensation National Discussion arena. I’m not easily threatened, as anybody watching these blogs will attest, or anybody who knows me. Right is right and wrong is wrong. 

Workers Compensation is a dangerous institution, harming not only injured and defenseless workers, but taxpayers, too. See Congressional letter of October 2015, signed by 10 representatives. 

So, if you have a story, let’s get’s the ball rolling again. We’ll also be reaching out to “The Defense” side….and their team players and get their opinions on how to save lives of Injured Workers without costing the industry ALL THEIR PROFITS. 

Obviously, the counsel for Injured Workers is baffled and perplexed and befuddled about how to actually protect their clients, and the Top 22+ Industry Bloggers aren’t much help in that department, either. 

Most Injured Workers are AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT. Others are so befuddled by Learned Helplessness, they honestly seem to think IF ONLY they got a new doctor, a new lawyer, a new prescription, then everything would be dandy…even if they have been believing it for 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 years of torture, abuse, and denials of medical care, YES, IN AMERICA!

#DodgeTheRads  – Bob Nichols Said WHAT Else?

MyWorkCompCoach.com – WE ALL HAVE A STORY TO TELL!

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW

Can SEX EDUCATION Solve the Crises of Hyper-Corruption related to Workers Compensation?

“We go on and on and on about “costs” of this, that and the other thing.”

“Nobody talks about the costs that we create by our own stupidity, or selfishness – whichever is applicable in this instance.”      – DePaolo

something is terribly wrong with workers compensation isn't it

How do we, as a community, show the world that workers’ compensation can and does commit heinous crimes against injured workers and other taxpayers, as offensive as the War Crimes of Nazi Germany?

America’s workers compensation system includes butcher doctors and leased/owned doctors on direct referral in the “MPN” networks to maim and torture workers, directly or by false reports and or denials of medical care, by those with medical licenses that do not honor the oath to DO NO HARM.  Swaths of pockets of businesses see and use injured workers as their cash cows, and openly boast about it, in their mega billion dollar industries.

The spokes people for the industry attempt to find some little things they may do right, and poke fun at the disabled community members, even knowing that their industry ‘creates disabilities.’   Some of their mouthpieces call law enforcement demands by law abiding citizens ‘vociferous militancy’ and said-mouth-pieces continuously refuse to assume responsibility for the heinous actions for profits perpetuated by their industry.

Continued cover ups of the crimes ensures continued crimes.  NOTHING CHANGES WHEN NOTHING CHANGES.   INJURED WORKERS ARE NO LONGER SILENT.

Injured Workers – WHY NOT JUST PETITION? WHY BLOG? Workers Compensation National Discussion – Nearly 6,000 USA UPDATES

Did YOU read the petition with nearly 6,000 of Injured Workers across America?  It has not yet made it to the “Workers Compensation National Discussions”…  maybe by August, it will?

How should we respond collectively against propaganda spin press and encourage legitimate media relations? What will satisfy the victims as to the no-benefits, no decent medical care, cost-shifting and life destroying PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models provided under any workers’ compensation system?”

IS IT REALLY LIKE SEX EDUCATION OF TEENAGERS? REALLY?

Injured Workers   Mediation for negotiations and structured settlements

IN LIEU OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, IS A BAG OF GROCERIES AND A MONTH’S WORTH OF UTILITIES SUFFICIENT FOR SCOFFING AT CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS IN AMERICA, IN CANADA, IN THE UK, IN AUSTRALIA, IN INDIA, AND ANYWHERE PEOPLE WORK?

SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH WORKER’S COMPENSATION, ISN’T IT?

are you kidding me - national workers compensation discussion

“HOW DARE YOU” Are you F’ing Kidding Me?!?”

“Why on earth was this injured worker jerked around like that? What is the problem with IMMEDIATELY authorizing treatment that a non-work comp doctor poignantly prescribed? Why does it take so long to get “authorization” and why is authorization needed in the first place?”

“Complete and utter BS.”

http://daviddepaolo.blogspot.com/2015/09/how-dare-you.html

“We should also be castigating those that engage in this kind of nonsense.”

“How about a little dignity? How about treating a PERSON like a PERSON? How about getting rid of these stupid, asinine rules that get in the way of good claims (heck – people) management?”

“How about DOING THE RIGHT THING?!”

 

“Workers’ compensation has come under the public eye in a very negative way with: Michael Grabell’s ProPublica series highlighting the great disparity in benefits between states; OSHA’s report summarizing various studies about inequities in work comp and how benefits have been decimated, let alone failed to keep up with inflation; and other national media stories about inequities suffered by injured workers published by the Los Angeles Times, Texas Tribune, Boston Globe, NY Times, and others. The industry reacted defensively, further exacerbating this negative image. And the industry can’t escape the numerous blog posts by injured workers soured on the treatment they have experienced under the workers’ compensation system. Yet, there really are success stories and other vignettes and tales where workers’ compensation did work, where people did recover and were provided all that the law allows, and more. So how does the industry put its best foot forward? How do we, as a community, show the world that workers’ compensation can do, and does, good things? How should we respond collectively against negative press and encourage positive media relations? What will satisfy the critics as to the no-fault benefits provided under any workers’ compensation system?” – DePaolo’s World

“We should also be castigating those that engage in this kind of nonsense.”

“How about a little dignity? How about treating a PERSON like a PERSON? How about getting rid of these stupid, asinine rules that get in the way of good claims (heck – people) management?”

“How about DOING THE RIGHT THING?!”

  1. What else? Oh dear, it appears that more of the real issues of WorkCompsterisms are being revealed.

 

What would Dr. Freud or Dr. Bruce Leckart have to say about these further quotes:

 

 “….And we shouldn’t sugar coat the workers’ compensation story either.” “When my son began adolescence, I literally hit him in the head with a box of condoms and told him my two golden rules: don’t be a dumb arse, and beware the power of female genitalia (I used more profane adjectives…).”

 “That lesson was reinforced from time to time with similar provocative, yet effective, communications….”

Linda Ayres

But wait! There’s more!

 “…We can start with the various organizations that communicate regularly with at risk demographics, like AARP.”

 “Hit them in the head with the proverbial box of condoms…”

Too much time in the rads? Yikes… People are being butchered and abused and impoverished by WorkComp nationally, and the industry spokes peeps seem to think it is a joking matter… hmmmmm 

Will Michael Michael Grabell and Howard Berkes do an encore to the 2015 INSULT TO INJURY and expose more on the improprieties that continue thru SSA and SSDI…

Down Under they suggest SMILING INJURED WORKERS WOULD GET WORK COMP MEDICAL CARE – LEGAL REPRESENTATION AND BENEFITS -if only… ?!? Really?

ANOTHER DIATRIBE VIA WORKCOMP CENTRAL…supporting such notions?

First, my take on the malicious organized personal attacks by certain members of the Workers Compensation community, then the threads, FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH.    

Hint:  ‘Smiling Silent Injured Workers do NOT get medical care, competent legal representations and benefits either.’    It’s all about the money.

That notion and disinformation to smile and be quiet to get medical care or charitable supplies is pure insurance industry disinformation/propaganda, IN ORDER TO PROTECT PROFITS BEFORE LIVES, touched with sexist thoughts (akin to the cycle of domestic violence)  that women should be seen and not heard, unless they toe the company line, then they may speak, as scripted only. 

Take note of how many women are involved in the ‘WorkComp National Discussion’ and the various panels of their regular high-end conferences and parties, ‘All of This Because Somebody Got Hurt at Work.’

U.S. Lawmakers Call for More Oversight of Workers’ Comp

In response to a ProPublica and NPR investigation, members of Congress are urging the labor secretary to come up with a plan to protect injured workers and taxpayers.

ghandi then you win

The pockets of ProPublica and NPR are apparently too deep for organizations like WorkComp Central and WorkersCompensation.com and their ilk to do battle with — so the WC boyz want to continuously attack one of the very few Injured Worker Survivors who blogs in order to help her fellow Americans, despite a brain injury?  Really?

These are the THOUGHT INFLUENCERS, attacking and disparaging injured workers/workcomp survivors are shaping public opinion on what’s desperately wrong with the epic fail and shell game of Workers Compensation????????? REALLY?  C’mon, Americans are not that stupid, are we?

 

wc attacking people with disabilities

If you can still think you might re-read the October 2015 letter from 10 congressional representatives to the Department of Labor Secretary, on the alarming issues of Workers Compensation.

So much for the National Discussions on Workers Exterminations, huh?  How are the “Secret Discussions” coming along in the Heartland? D’oh.

FOLLOW THE MONEY, ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY.

Hint:  You won’t find it near the Injured Workers of America, Canada or Australia.

The first diatribe was from David DePaolo himself, first as an email (which was ignored) and then it was embellished and became a blog called ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY.   It’s not David’s best work or shot, it’s fraught with sexist innuendo and  but the comments from Injured Workers will be enlightening to all who read them.

WHAT A HOOT ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY 5 11 2016
WHAT A HOOT! 

The structure and content is not David’s typical nearly perfect delivery with concrete, critical thinking.  In fact, it hardly looks like his writing at all.  Was there duress that caused such an attack, seemingly organized to do even more harm? Who knows.  Maybe too much time in the air, in the rads.  He knows about Wigner effect, etc. He’s a pilot.  He has to know.

Injured Workers ask me why David is attacking me, and inciting further attacks.   All I can say is, “‘I dunno and don’t care.  The behavior sure seems like that of a psychopath.’

Others chime in that they are just trying to silence me.  I’m just trying to help discover and implement some win/win/win resolutions that allow Injured Workers to survive, escape WorkComp, get medical care and get on with their lives.

Many Injured Workers want to see incarcerations for the criminal conduct they have been subjected to.   A nice compromise is, upon swift resolution of all cases over 4 years old, for starters, wishing the criminal elements of Workers Compensation very interesting lives in the great outdoors, and no reminders to #DodgeTheRads.

I thought David respected the Constitution, particularly the First Amendment, even if the Fourteenth Amendment means little to him and his.  I guess I was wrong there, too.

fun fairy tales

 

Rosemary, author of the most recent diatribe below,  facilitates, among other things, bags of food for poor, impoverished, injured and disabled Workers in Australia who have been abused and tortured by a similar WorkComp system that is allowed to operate without fear or caution, maiming and killing as they go.  Apparently she has been providing basics for Injured Workers for nearly 20 years.

 

David DePaolo seems mad at me because I am not interested in promoting ‘bags of surplus food’ to America’s injured workers.  It could be something else.  I used to work for an attorney who always said, “REMEMBER, PEOPLE WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THE WRONGS THEY HAVE DONE TO YOU.”

 

Organizations already exist that help Injured American Workers abused, tortured, impoverished by the scofflaws of the WorkComp systems.  The Salvation Army is one such organization that helps injured workers keep heat and power, and they also have food banks.

I SAY, DAVID AND PALS, YOU’RE IN THE LEGAL WORLD.  WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU ATTEMPT TO FUND AN ORGANIZATION TO PROVIDE FOOD TO AMERICANS IMPOVERISHED BY THE EPIC FAIL OF THE DESTRUCTIVE, DEBILITATING AND LETHAL SYSTEM OF WORKERS COMPENSATION INSTEAD OF DEMANDING LAW ENFORCEMENT?!!

I received a call from a LinkedIn member who alleged he wanted to help empower me to advocate for Injured Workers.  I accepted the phone call.  He wanted to talk to me about creating a local food bank.

I politely told him to go to hell, because we have a BILL OF RIGHTS AND A CONSTITUTION IN THE COUNTRY, and if States refuse to protect injured workers and citizens, Congress has offered to send in law enforcement.  WE NEED A NEW CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION, NOT BAGS OF SURPLUS GMO FOOD.

Effects must surely be addressed, and I too, had episodes of no money where I had to rely on charity because of Workers Compensation, and it was a very humbling and frightening experiences, compounded by a brain injury.  I have always been about addressing causes, knowing full well that in so doing, EFFECTS TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.

If the crises of hyper-corruption that facilitates the impoverishment and egregious harm of America’s injured workers is eliminated, food banks for that population will become unnecessary, along with advocacy and legal aid and all public assistance.

SIMPLE – DEMAND THAT THE INSURANCE CARRIERS FULFILL THEIR OBLIGATIONS TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE, REASONABLE AND APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE, WITH RETURN TO WORK PREPARATORY ACTIONS, and stop torturing and abusing injured workers.  STOP WITH THE LIES THAT WORKCOMP CASES GONE WRONG ARE THE EXCEPTION — DEMAND THE COMPLETE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION AND HOLD THE ‘BAD ACTORS’ ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE RAMPANT LEGAL CHICANERY AND UNLAWFUL CONDUCT.

HOW ABOUT TAKING SOME LEGAL ACTION TO SEE THAT LAWS ARE ENFORCED, FRAUD IS PROSECUTED, INJURED WORKERS ARE PROVIDED WITH MEDICAL CARE AND OTHER BENEFITS IN ORDER TO RETURN TO WORK.

WHY DON’T YOU JOIN US IN ESTABLISHING A NATIONAL MOVEMENT TO PUT A CAP ON HOW LONG A FILE CAN BE CHURNED IN WORKERS COMPENSATION LAW FIRMS??

IF TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY PAYMENTS CEASE AT 2 YEARS, THEN SUFFICIENT MEDICAL CARE SHOULD BE DELIVERED WITHIN THE TWO YEARS TO FACILITATE RETURN TO WORK.

IF IT IS NOT, THEN THE CASE SHOULD BE MEDIATED WITH STRUCTURED SETTLEMENT AND RESOLVED. THE CURRENT INCENTIVES TO PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE AND CLOSURE DO NOT EXIST FOR THE EMPLOYERS OR CARRIERS.

IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS MORE COST EFFECTIVE TO DENY MEDICAL CARE AND HOPE AN INJURED AMERICAN DIES BEFORE A JUDGE CAN ORDER MEDICAL CARE.

 

OCCUPY WORKCOMP because

  • Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson

    Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson Yes something is wrong, I will not for one second deny that there is something incredibly wrong within the workers compensation industry. I will not deny that I have stood and delivered eulogies at the funerals of injured workers who have taken their own lives; now will I deny that I run the only emergency food relief project {Bags of Love} for injured workers and their families; I will not deny that I have sat in the reception areas of claims agents to collect overdue monies for injured workers. I will not deny any of what I have done over the last 20+ years as firstly an injured worker and secondly as an advocate for injured workers.

    My name has been dragged through the mud, my name has been used in a form of a witch hunt, I have been accused of getting into bed with the system and getting unaccounted for payments from the system- to the point where I gave permission for an investigator to search my bank details and my tax information.

     

  • Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson

    Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson I walk the finest of lines possible.
    As an advocate for injured workers I am required to go where no others dream or dare to go.
    As an advocate I speak up and I speak out against all forms of injustice.
    I write letters to inform the Boards of major companies just what is happening in the lives of their injured workforce.
    As an advocate I have offered to lodge claims against case managers using the very same legislation that they use against injured workers.
    As an advocate I speak loudly for the injured workers who do not believe that anyone will care or any one will listen.
    As an advocate I have studied legislation, I have studied policy and procedures and I have studied the various systems.
    As an advocate I have had to learn and learn fast what can be done, what is achievable and how to bend the legislation but never break it.
    I also learnt a long time back that carping and complaining changes nothing.
    I also was told that if I didn’t like the system, then I had to change it.

     

  • Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson

    Rosemary McKenzie-FergusonWhat I do know is that I am respected for the way I go about my work, my opinion is sought after and listened to. I have multiple Awards after my name.
    I have been invited places and addressed conferences where no other injured worker advocate has been invited before.
    All of this against is of no value- it is like standing at a door and pushing and pushing and pushing as hard as you can whilst ignoring the sign on the door that says pull.
    If you want change, then be the change that you want to see.
    Being angry serves no one and changes nothing.

    Linda Ayres Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson – Thanks for saying how wonderful you are. It’s a bit off topic, but ok. I am very familiar with your work, and your supporters.

    I do hope you will encourage your son to specialize in Mediation, with a strong understanding of Structured Settlements. He seems to be a very bright young man with great compassion and will-to-good.

    There’s a grassroots movement in the works to create such a national operation here in the USA to help Injured Workers escape the Workers Compensation system. This is America. WE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, AND FREEDOM ISN’T FREE. ASK ANYBODY IN OUR MILITARY. ASK ANY PATRIOT.

    I have to tell you, Injured American Workers were wondering who the next attacker would. We guessed it would be Joe Paduda and someone else from the Best Blogs of 2016. Joe is hanging in there with Kimberly in one of the threads of Injured Workers. Good for them. You are a surprise “combatant.”

    Linda Ayres If you helped David write ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY, you probably also saw the original draft, that was sent to me as an email attack. Did you see the blogs and posts and comments of response? Here you go, for you convenience.

    I must say that if you promote the belief that “SMILING INJURED WORKERS GET WORK COMP BENEFITS” that’s as silly as the Nuclear Industry telling the people of Japan that “Smiling People Don’t Get Radiation Poisoning”…. and just as vile. Maybe it works in Australia, but not in America.

    Linda Ayres I think David linked this one in Assume Responsibility… am I right?

    Did you get a chance to read it yet? Oh yeah, this is one of the ones where it was obvious that David and Sedgwick had a ‘meeting’… Bob Wilson was late, but left shortly thereafter…

    David had suggested that Injured Workers rewire their mind set in this thread with a post, I think, you know, ‘don’t worry, be happy, forgive and forget the most vile of crimes committed against Americans and rebuild on dust, or, like one of his reporters recommended, ‘best to hope for is Social Security Award and an early death’ to one injured worker.

  • Linda Ayres

    Linda Ayres David was very mean and untruthful in Assume Responsibility, but I think he may have been egged on by bad influencers. Over the years, David had always been kind to me, and generous with his expertise. He got real mad at me when I told him I was going to a meeting “with an open heart, an open mind, and an empty brief case.” He ranted harshly that nobody would help me because I was too angry. When all was said and done, even the Defense Attorney and several doctors applauded my survival efforts; some, in fact, suggested I begin to coach others. David forgets how many blogs I shared promoting CompLaude in 2014 and 2015, and totally forgot, apparently, how many blogs I did about the new Sedgwick Institute linked in group. And ol’ Bob Wilson could only be insulting and demeaning and whining that not too many people nominated for the Best Blogs — but I also did my best, despite my personal opinions of Bob and his work, for the greater good, I shared his darn links around social media.

  • Linda Ayres

    Linda Ayres Here’s another May 6 response to the initial email attack… clarifying some of the word usage.. David wrapped up with suggesting I read “HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE” and I got a good laugh out of that, as did many of many dear friends. Initial reaction to that suggestion was, ‘yeah, sure David, and you might open Sun Tzu’s THE ART OF WAR to any random page…. but it helps to study the whole book.

  • Linda Ayres

    Linda Ayres So, since this seems like a highly suspicious organized attack to ‘Silence the Blogger’ and since I think I read that David is claiming that these national discussions are involving input from Injured Workers, I’m ‘puzzled, baffled, bewildered, perplexed’ at such a comment.

    Injured Workers are puzzled that the Boyz think that you, an Australian if I am not mistaken, are the only injured worker capable of telling it like it is along with Bob’s ‘key executive’ who also survived WorkComp many years ago.

    My blog, ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS was started in Summer 2013, and the reach is well over 30,000 now. You might find some value in studying it. Influencers have.

    As of the first of this year, the shift took place away from my personal case to addressing the national crises in WorkComp that causes such egregious harm to too many Americans.

    Linda Ayres I was planning a Virtual Field Trip to Facebook for Industry people — to the Injured Worker ghettos to encourage communications and fact finding for the industry. I had to postpone it due to these silly personal diatribes.

    Linda AyresIn conclusion, one of your countrymen is also big on interfering with Americans in a way that can cause them harm and death ….

    I will never forget, nor forgive, the one who told our young people ‘RUN NAKED IN THE STREETS IF YOU HAVE TO TO SHOUT ABOUT THE DANGEROUS OF NUCLEAR POWER’ …. The Streets were Hanford, Washington, and it is one of the TOP TEN MOST RADIOACTIVE PLACES ON EARTH.

    She was one of the top referrers of my blog, ASK ABOUT FUKUSHIMA NOW, for several years. I do not reciprocate sharing her disinformation. You may know Dr. Helen Caldicott?

    Don’t be like her. Stay out our business and if you aim to harm Injured Americans by diluting and minimizing the dangers we face in WorkComp or nuclear, you have another fight on your hands, lady. Your attack makes you more like them than like us…. and the money trail never lies.

    In further thought, your comments and personal boasting are totally off topic. If this was facebook, you might be censored.

LUCY OCCUPY SAYS EACH ONE WARN ONE THOUSAND

 

OPEN LETTER TO WorkCompsters about “THE BLAME GAME”

Gentlemen,
.
Thank you for taking the time to send your thoughts, posts and/or blogs about my efforts, disappointing as your input is.
.
Excerpt:    “You may as well just dig a hole and hide because no one is going to pay attention. [to you]”

.

SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH THE WORKERS’ COMPENSATION SYSTEM, ISN’T IT?

.
“…why not study the system, study the law, the regulations, and PROPOSE solutions that a politician or regulator can endorse and work with?”
.
 Why not rely on the Constitution of the United States of America to protect Injured Workers being violently abused, maimed, tortured and killed by the crisis of WorkComp hyper-corruption??
 
The answer to that is quite simple.  THERE ARE TOO MANY UNCLEAN HANDS ON THAT BATTLE FIELD, and they don’t follow the rules of war.
We’ll leave the legal battles to those equipped to fight those fights for indictments for crimes against humanity, and complicity of same.
 .
I’m deeply disappointed by your attacks because I know you know the truth.  I doubt that you would send such a communication if I was not a woman, an older, disabled woman at that! I remember men talking to women like that in the 70’s.  We had a revolution, remember?
 .
To attack and demean me is what it is.   I tell injured workers all the time that NOBODY WILL RISK THEIR INCOME FOR OUR LIVES, and that the sooner they get that, the greater chance they have for survival.
 
 .
I have painstakingly attempted to ‘rebrand’ and to put action ideas around every item I have identified — to know avail.  
 .
  • I submitted 22 ideas for the fake National Work Comp Discussions,
  • I laboriously promoted the Sedgwick Institute – LinkedIn group all over social media,
  • I invited my ‘a-list’ contacts directly, I communicated politely and directly with the Sedgwick people.  
  • I was probably one of the most active ‘fans’ for CompLaude  2014 and 2015 and
  • I racked my brain to come up with numerous nominees.  
  • I diligently and respectfully promoted nominations be made for the industry “Best Blogs of 2016” contest via blogs, posts, and other social media, and emails.  
  • I created a page for Injured Workers and Industry Workers Resource Page, freely sharing contact information about a wealth of resources, inviting others to add to it, and have repeatedly and continuously encouraged Injured Workers to blog to save their own lives.  
  • I compiled a page of some of the more Injured Worker Vlogs — videos of WorkComp stories to inform and inspire to further action.  
  • I have created social media groups and pages, and I have posted in multiple groups and pages on behalf of Injured Workers. 
  • I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORKCOMP SURVIVOR.
 .
I have suggested outcome studies of same body part injuries to Injured Workers and Personal Injury patients….suggesting it will absolutely expose the wrong doings and disabilities caused by WorkComp. The costs are then shifted to Social Security and Medicare after lengthy fights, relieving your industry of any risks or responsibilities whatsoever, passing everything through to taxpayers and the injured workers, with profits fronted by the duped employers who purchase policies for protection that are hardly worth the paper they are written on, when it comes to fiduciary responsibilities.
 .
The injured worker questionnaire I have circulated has brought in some chilling horror stories.   Here, take a look again.
 .
Watch for it.  You’ll be reading about them soon enough.  The majority of Injured Workers are so terrified of the mobster-type activities that permeate your industry, they have shared on an anonymous basis.  I have found an editor who will help me ensure they are protected in the anonymous tellings.  In such a manner, these “complaints” or “problem identifications” can then be discussed in the national community. Perhaps mediations will result for these specific cases, leading the way for others.  The offending carriers and employers will likely be identified in the telling, but not attached to the specific stories, in order to provide a degree of protection.   I hope the Department of Justice will find the efforts worth reading, since the industry considers such stories ‘drivel.’
 .
Here’s the questionnaire again, if you never looked.  What’s Your WorkComp Story?    https://myworkcompcoach.com/whats-your-workcomp-story/  The editor I hope to retain has promised to help develop and refine further questions.   As you know, I have a brain injury, so some cognitive challenges are beyond my post-injury capacity.  I do the best I can with the abilities I have left.  They didn’t label me ‘permanently disabled’ just for fun, in case you have forgotten.   “I’m injured, not stupid.”
 .
When I am chided for being non-supportive of a program that ‘gives food to poor injured workers’ –WORKERS destroyed by workers compensation corruption, I must wonder about the money behind bringing such a program to the USA and wonder further at the audacity to accept the need for such handouts in America when there are laws in place to protect injured workers, scoffed at by your industry and the politicians it leases/owns.
When a set of industry blog contest-judges cannot find one word to say about any of the nominated Injured Worker blogs by Americans — something sounds pretty suspicious, doesn’t it, and quite unpatriotic. That they were shunned because they criticize the industry realllly sounds suspicious, doesn’t it?   It took a troll attack on an Injured Worker to get that ‘committee chair’ to even comment on Injured Worker nominations, albeit insultingly so?
.
We still have a Bill of Rights, don’t we?
 .
I think it’s far more patriotic to deal the CAUSE, knowing EFFECTS will take care of themselves.  
 .
RESOLVE THE PROBLEM and INDICT THOSE COMMITTING THE CRIMES CAUSING INJURED WORKERS TO BECOME JOBLESS, HOMELESS, AND FOODLESS, IN BAD HEALTH.   To refuse to deal with the core issues is, in my humble opinion, getting to the heart of the issues of your industry.  The DA’s can’t bust the crime rings with the millions of dollars allocated?  Fine.  Send in the National Guard to take over their duties.  When, for example, Evaluating Doctor crowds have direct lines to the offices of the District Attorneys to provide to complaining injured workers, WE MAY HAVE A PROBLEM, HOUSTON!
 at what age did you lose your compassion
 .
The nuclear industry has a similar style of propaganda and disinformation, deployed by their disinformationists.  It’s fascinating and very easy to discern.
 .
So when you suggest my efforts are useless and that  “You may as well just dig a hole and hide because no one is going to pay attention.” I can respectfully remind you of the ol’ civil rights saying, ‘NO LIE CAN LIVE FOREVER!’  How long?  YOU SHALL REAP WHAT YOU SOW! [31 second reminder]
 .
I agree with you on one point.  “A complaint without a solution is bullsh*t.”   
 .
What other complaints do you have about my methods of increasing awareness of the crisis of hyper– corruption in the WorkComp communities?
 
mlk  he who accepts evil
 
 
Every doctor, lawyer, judge and provider knows full well that EVERY WORK COMP STORY IS THE SAME —-  Just different names, body parts and case numbers.  
 .
Outcomes are usually dismally the same.  Denied medical care, compounded injuries, denied benefits, lost health, lost jobs, lost homes, lost lives.  
 .
Nobody goes to jail for fraud, corruption, attempted murder, obstructions of justice or collusion.  
The Angels of Death doctors owned/leased by the industry are well paid, and decent doctors are cheated of agreed on fees.  
.
How many lives have been destroyed by Workers Compensation to date?  
.
How many more lives will be destroyed before your industry is stopped and held accountable for so many crimes??  
 
 
I PROPOSE TO FIND THE WAYS AND MEANS TO HELP FREE THE PRISONERS OF THE WAR ON WORKERS IN AMERICA, FOR STARTERS.
   
Mediators and Structured Settlement teams, for Injured Workers, armed and trained in blogging and social media maximum impact and investigative reporting is a first step for Virtual Combat and Survival.  
 
I have written at length on many possible strategic solutions.  Encouraging Committees of Bloggers and breaking the silence on the dirty OPEN SECRETS OF WORK COMP has always been one of my aims.  I am happy to report many calls and emails of thanks from injured workers who find hope and strength in my writings.
 
As long as your industry feels above the law and protected, it’s an uphill battle.   
 
ProPublica and NPR shined some light on the issues, but only the tip of the iceberg. It is obvious that the industry is attempting damage control from the fallout of the Insult to Injury Demolition of Workers Compensation investigative reports and the Congressional response, which, you may recall, offered to send in law enforcement help, if needed.  When I say, “Yes, please, SEND IN THE NATIONAL GUARD” it is not said without foundation.
 
For you and your peers to take pot shots at the very few Injured Workers willing to stand up and say, “Yo! Guys! WTF do you think you are doing and WTF do you think you are maiming and killing people in the USA for profits could be easily classified as truly reprehensible?!! NOT IN THIS COUNTRY, M*F*s!!”  
 
If believing in the Constitution of the United States of America makes me a ‘militant’ in your opinion, well, all I can suggest is that you might take a look at Constitutional law one of these days. 
WATCH FOR eCourse - COMING SOON
WATCH FOR eCourse – COMING SOON
 
The position of your industry of for-profit aggressive maiming, torture and killing of unarmed and disabled populations, young and old, primarily female,  in a systematic program of extermination seems to be the more extreme stand.  Just saying.  It takes most injured workers approximately 2 years to grasp the harsh realities; some never get it and cling to the results of Stockholm Syndrome and their necessary opiates, due to failed surgeries and denied corrective surgeries…FOR YEARS.
 
 
I am working on creating an eCourse:  WorkComp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills to help injured workers and people of goodwill in the workcomp industry to fight the good fight to save lives, free the prisoners.
 
Many hope and pray for indictments of the most heinous of the serial killers in your industry, without wasting a minute on fighting windmills. That is unlikely to happen in my lifetime or yours, but working together, lives could be saved….. just like some people were spared the horrors of Auschwitz and other death chambers.  It will take longer without your help, but be assured, that the War Your Industry has declared and continues to wage on Injured Workers will not go unfought.
 
 herd cliff
Your industry has made it’s position clear.  Injured Workers suspected that May would bring a huge propaganda blitz, more than a year in the makings, to attempt damage control and profit saving due to the truths exposed in Insult to Injury:  THE DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION.    
.
Do you consider the award winning work of Grabell, Berkes et al as “mere complaining” or as some like to say, “drivel” when the industry issues are elevated?  Not comparing my exposes to the power behind ProPublica and NPR….  I just have my little disability checks to fund my efforts with, not huge corporate benefactors. like y’all do.
.
I even suggested to the Sedgwick fellas about a National Telesummit series, to get issues on the virtual table for discussion by not only professionals, but by those across the nation, most egregiously harmed by the patterns and practices of Workers Compensation.  
 
Alrighty.  Your position is clear.  I hope mine is, too.  
 
As always, many thanks for all your kindness over the years.  I wish you could find a way to multiply those efforts and help more injured workers escape and survive the horrors of Workers Extermination Programs.
 .
Maybe instead of the “Blame Game” for national discussions, the “Thought Leaders” may lead a round of the “Glad Game.”‘
 .
While the final suggestion was that I re-read “How to Win Friends and Influence People”…. in a spirit of reciprocity, I would suggest that you start a study group of the book, THE ART OF WAR by Sun Tzu, to address the CRISES OF HYPER-CORRUPTION DESTROYING THE AMERICAN WORKING CLASS.   As you all know and boast about, what goes on in WorkComp is NOT A SECRET.   Ask any doctor or super lawyer, huh?  Or any injured worker.
 .
See you around the internet.

Sincerely,

 
Linda Ayres and Friends

WorkComp – Updates on America’s Dirty OPEN SECRETs

Injured Workers’ Stories Are The Same

–the minor differences are names, body parts and case numbers – Ask a Doctor or Lawyer for confirmation

Ask Your Injured Friends and Neighbors, too!

identify definition

“The reason you draw the reactions from these folks is not because you are being vilified, or because they have a disdain for the injured worker with a voice or any other malicious reason.”

“It is very simple – you offer nothing positive relative to change.”

“Anyone can complain. Few do anything to effectuate change.”

“Drawing attention to the negative, which you have done for the past several years, does nothing to further the conversation, offers no solutions, provides no road map.”

REALLY????

…It simply is not enough to complain. Everyone has a complaint. A complaint without a solution is bulls**t. You may as well just dig a hole and hide because no one is going to pay attention.

Everyone knows that bad sh*t happens in work comp and that there are profiteers off of the injured. That’s no secret.

So what are YOU going to do about it? …. Anonymous Industry Mouthpiece

The contempt and disdain that masks the dangers to Injured Workers by the industry profiteers is undeniable and sounds pretty darn dangerous, doesn’t it?

They ‘might be right.’

I wonder what if the 30,000 + viewers of AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com have any opinions on the foregoing statements?  If so, please tell me more at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

Watch for future issues of MyWorkCompCoach.com for strategies on how to deal with such interactions.  Remember remember Ghandi…

‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then…YOUR BLOG POSTS GO VIRAL!’  – or something like that, huh?   xooxoxo

I want to find a way to propose solutions to help Injured Workers escape the WC System with their lives.  The laws are unenforced and meaningless.

I have a collection of Injured Worker stories, most of whom prefer to be Anonymous.  Watch for them.  They include, but are not limited to, in progress tragedies apparently caused by Sedgwick and others.  Most have poor-to-no legal representation, advocacy, medical care or benefits.  Yes, in America! An AMERICAN DIRTY OPEN SECRET.

Too many lawyers just make stuff up to protect profits by any means necessary. The US Constitution is mocked by the WorkCompsters, and far worse, they get away with it.  You don’t look.  You don’t care. Till you’re stuck in the box car, heading for the death camps of WorkComp.  Enough is enough.

It will require teams of mediators and structured settlement people. Would you find that of any interest? Start with a plan to release all POW’s who have been in the WorkComp System 4 or more years…..within 12 months, with the help and supervision of the National Guard.

It requires “arming ” Injured Workers with the ability to blog and share their stories, heinous as most of them are.

I am also in the process creating a course for Injured Workers to empower them with Work Comp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills!  Watch for it!

I am wondering about the possibilities of a collaborative effort and ezine and possible Tele summit to unite voice of any good people in Workers Compensation with victims of WorkComp to lead legitimate national discussions “Of the People, By the People and For the People.”

I am one voice speaking on behalf of Injured Workers. There are a few of us.

Canadians and Australians seem more vocal about the same class atrocities. Perhaps they don’t fear their governments like so many American’s do?  Has our Constitution become so meaningless that an entire industry can profit by destroying a segment of the Working Class?   ‘When they come for you, there will be no one left to speak for you…’

Most injured workers are too terrified of the WorkCompsters and their legislated fraud and surveillance and threats, compounding denied medical care and benefits.  Doesn’t that truth make you shake your head and want to shout, “NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!!”

The Injured Worker stories are the same — minor differences are names, body parts, and case numbers.  The outcomes are much the same too…with degrees of further maligned health,  income and job losses, botched surgeries, risk/cost shifts to taxpayers via Social Security and prison systems, ETC.

Some experts insist that the best injured workers can hope for in America is social security disability and an early death.   Really, some industry investigative reporting from the dark side, huh?

Others suggest that the best American’s can hope for is a program to provide ‘food for the poor injured workers’ rather than LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR MEDICAL CARE AND BENEFITS, indictments from criminal conduct of the WorkCompsters, and the protection by the National Guard for extreme CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN EVERY STATE IN THE UNION.

NAZI HUNTER STES  5 4 2016

Congress didn’t offer assistance with food banks for poor tortured and abused Injured Workers.   Here’s the October 2015 letter where the ten signers clearly offer assistance, that could indeed come in the deployment of the National Guard, since State agencies also fail injured workers, nationally.

“….and whether added authorities are needed to better ensure that the interests of injured workers and taxpayers are protected.”

We say, keep your bags of surplus food out of the legal functioning of WorkComp…ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT ARE IN PLACE TO PROTECT INJURED WORKERS, AND INDICT THE OFFENDERS THAT READILY COMMIT FRAUD WITH INTENT TO DENY MEDICAL CARE, AND WORSE.

If the laws are unenforceable, then there is no choice but to immediately demolish the workers compensation systems and commence trials for the crimes being committed against every Injured Worker in America, and taxpayers, and employers and legitimate service providers.  You could be their next victim.

are we going to see YOUR shoes here

I am a work comp survivor, who was extremely unsuccessful in finding competent legal counsel.  Nevertheless, in pro per, ‘the parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.”  #BloggersSurviveWorkComp

Doctor and Lawyer pals advised to “get out of the workers comp system by any means necessary; it will kill you.”   Some later said that in their entire careers, they never saw anybody fight so hard to survive WorkComp.

One such ‘fan’ suggested that I create a ‘coaching program.’  From that simple encouragement, I began working on a new blog, MyWorkCompCoach.com and an eCourse, Surviving Work Comp and Virtual Combat Skills on Teachable.

Personal ‘rebranding’  post-WorkComp is difficult when hearing fresh horror stories, while being continuously assaulted by industry trolls and their ilk.  It can, however, be accomplished, with a little help from our friends.

I have been a strong advocate for the CompLaude Awards 2014-2015 and I used my resources to also share in the social media communities about the recent 2016 best blogs contest.

A search of the website, AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com results in pages of and pages of posts about the Comp Laude event.  Ditto for the ‘Best Blogs’ event.  Call it ‘drivel’ if they will.  Sticks and Stones…..

We also shared news of the Sedgwick Institute Linked in group, for what it’s worth, after reading weeks before of the mega-funded SEDGWICK INSTITUTE, allegedly established to investigate the ‘issues’ of WorkComp.  Search my blogs for further info.  Google it.

I blog extensively, to the best of my abilities, as I recover from Worker’s Compensation and brain injury.  My anti-nuclear efforts have suffered tremendously due to WorkComp battles, but it has helped to see the parallels between the ‘PROFITS BEFORE LIVES’ nuclear and insurance industries, and the ‘swaths’ of 21st Century Sonderkommando.

I live near Joshua Tree National Park in California, USA. I am much nicer than I may appear in my blogs, and while my ability to speak is still impaired and challenging, I can speak but written communications are much easier for me, post-injury. If you have a story to share, send it to me.  We Are The Media Now.

Please let me know if you think there might be mutual benefit in a discussion. I have several projects on the table and it seems that the industry has amped up their propaganda blitz in a feeble effort to neutralize or mitigate the truths exposed in the 2015 Insult to Injury / Demolition of Worker’s Compensation series.

“Injured Workers without a blog are Unarmed and Unprotected In The WarOnWorkers!  #WoW”

Here are the industry’s picks of the Best Blogs of 2016.  Note the absence of Injured Worker Representation.

They all seem tasked with a propaganda launch to attempt to mitigate the truths exposed in 2015 by ProPublica and NPR efforts that just exposed the tip of the iceberg.  They are apparently having a ‘secret’ national discussion in May…. we’ll see what comes of that, won’t we.  So far, not so good in the open-ness and transparency arenas.  Attacks on Injured Workers seem to be escalating, and tales of WC Nurses posing as employees at doctors offices have been reported to be threatening, intimidating and terrorizing injured workers at doctor’s appointments.  SMH…. thinking, ‘NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!’

InjuredWorkersUniting!  SilentNoMore!

Share the link.  We’ll create another directory with Injured Worker reviews of the accuracy of their content, in due course.

Follow them all, and search their sites to see which ones actually bother to report on WorkComp Fraud legitimately…. the carriers seem to have the most indictments, and employees weigh in at less than 1%.  Follow that money trail.

JOIN IN THE DISCUSSIONS ON LINKEDIN.…  and tell your friends and neighbors; your governments already know.

You might also peruse these blogs for some potentially inspiring thoughts for actions….  “It takes a village.”

“Comp Laude and Best Blogs: There Has Never Been a Better Time to Celebrate the Best in Workers’ Comp”




 

ROAR

Rebranding, since the blog seems to have been instrumental in facilitating ‘the parties reaching resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement,’ and the process includes a new blog called MyWorkCompCoach.com.

This new blog will include some untold Injured Worker stories, including Veterans kicked to the curb not only by the VA, but by subsequent work injuries.  We have already received a few, and most want to share ‘Anonymously’ for fear of retribution from employers, insurers or bogey-peeps.

When you think about WorkComp and the plight of Injured Workers, be sure to know about Botched Surgeries and Failures to Provide Corrective Surgeries that contribute to the “disability making machinery” and opiate traffic. The stories are heinous.  If you have a job, hope you NEVER GET HURT on the job!  If the injury doesn’t kill you, WorkComp ‘care’ may finish the job!

Do you have a WorkComp Story to tell?  Tell it here! “What’s YOUR WorkComp Story?”  Anonymous PRECEDES Unanimous!  Remember that!

“Do you see what we we see?”

flag distress signal

O SAY CAN YOU SEE, AMERICA!

An e-Course is in the works, WorkComp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills — watch for details!

We collectively hope to incite real discussion in the alleged ‘national discussions’ (albeit secret discussions) in the works now.  We trust that the efforts of carriers like “Sedgwick Institute” will embrace Injured Workers, listen to the horror stories, so that we can all, collectively, work toward life extending resolutions that include ‘immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care’ and return to work efforts, when possible.

“… Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc. said it has established the Sedgwick Institute, which it describes as “an interdisciplinary community of thought leaders dedicated to elevating the dialogue around issues affecting the risk and benefits industry.”

white roses

Let’s dismantle the “disability making machine’ and create a legitimate Workers Rights movement to combat what WorkComp has become.  As the Department of Labor Secretary Perez indicates, their hands are somewhat tied.




 

“Labor Secretary Calls Workers’ Comp Opt-Out Plans A ‘Pathway To Poverty'”




 

The Congressional letter of October 2015 indicated some willingness on the part of a few members of Congress (and even a few more representing nuclear workers!) to provide law enforcement assistance, if necessary. It appears to be necessary, in most states.  So, ‘SEND IN THE NATIONAL GUARD, AND ENSURE THEY ATTEND THE ‘SECRET’ NATIONAL DISCUSSIONS in the works for May, somewhere in the ‘heartland.’

The matters of unbridled profits for the insurance industries on the backs of injured workers, along with costs shifting to same injured workers, to State and Federal coffers, is also discussed.  It’s hoped that the ‘national discussions’ include the most destructive and dangerous practices first, vs. hand wringing and “CYA” practices to protect PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.
