Is there a limit to the number of felony counts per #WorkComp case in California? Is there a limit to the number of indictments for Unclean Hands?

 “…You know, I would not be in this mess if it was not for Wyndham’s  Workers Compensation schtick.  Without it…”

Opinings by Injured Worker on how different the Outcome of the workplace injury may have been without WorkCompster interference.  Legitimate medical care, swift and expert, could have made the difference between return to work in 2012, and permanent disabilities and looking at Assisted Living and Memory Care for the near future.  WTF Wyndham, what’s wrong with you people?!

Swearing WTF

How many evaluations are required for how many years before an Injured Worker gets medical care for a Brain Injury and release for return to work? 4? 5? 10? 20? That sure is starting to sound like “never, we hope you die” plan, doesn’t it?   47 face to face evaluations, and approximately 20 CorVel employees and “Physician Advisors” on reams of regurgitation reports, written by what seems to be rapid-fire-copy-and-paste and make stuff up if not known, due to lost or omitted medical records.

.

Most all the doctors who have touched this case to date are listed, with the SSA exceptions.  Their “clinical psychologist” suggest that although neuro-optometrists reported severe vision processing issues, that I could consider a new career as a “crossing guard” (Goodness, would you want your kids helped across busy streets by a disabled person with auditory and vision processing issues, untreated issues?! Kid hater, huh?)   It’s shocking.  The list will be sorted soon by CompLaude nominees and ProPublic investigations nominees, for what it’s worth.

.

How important is an ENT evaluation when neurologists, neuro-optometrists, physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons and chiropractors and neuropsychologists have have all made very extensive reports with very comprehensive treatment recommendations for nearly 4 years?  File c-h-u-r-n-i-n-g…..?  It is a felony?

.

How about when it includes deceptions and false statements and omission of medical records with intent to deny medical care?  Golly, it’s too much, and recent correspondence from defense seems to suggest they have “Judges in their Pockets”…. Bummer.

Hi Tina,  [Wyndham Worldwide representative] Thanks.  I’ll look forward to hearing from you early next week.

My patience is real thin these days, as so much more harm has been caused to me in the continuous pattern and practice of delay/deny/deceive in hopes that I die.  3D is what NFL families call such treatment.  I’m not sure what CNA calls it, “Business as Usual” or just  “Profits Before Lives By Any Means Necessary”?

I was recapping my story to someone today and said out loud, “You know, I would not be in this mess if it was not for Wyndham’s  Workers Compensation schtick.  Without it, I would have been able to see legitimate doctors, get legitimate evaluations, legitimate AND IMMEDIATE MEDICAL CARE, and the probability that I could have returned to work in 2012 was high.  One doctor, Ponton, as you may recall, tried to release me to work in October 2012, despite his failure to secure medical care and expert evaluations.

I remember the first neuro-pscyhologist said that with speech therapy with cognitive remediation, I’d probably return to work in a few months.   That was February 2012.

Instead of legitimate care, I have had to fight for my life, spend a small fortune on getting basic medical care for survival, and find the most vile legal chicanery I’ve never seen before in my life.

Now I get to think about “assisted living” and “future medical” and “dementia” and “epilepsy”  since I didn’t get anything close to what legal guidelines for medical care for a clearly diagnosed head injury merits, and I’ve been bullied and badgered and threatened and abused by the “defense” and their leased/owned doctors who seem to lie on demand for the big bucks,  and zero help from the insurance carrier.  Even the CNA mis-statements of benefits to multiple agencies continues to cause me harm.

I spoke to Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program  today, as today was the “drop out deadline”…. I cried a lot because I told them how excited I was that Sunday, 8/23/15, to be returning, then I got your email pretending like you never got the message that since I hadn’t heard from anyone, August RTW was out, and we were back on 12/14/15 schedule.  Then, because of more chicanery, and now the ENT evaluation court gig is pushed to October….. and ….. well, as you can see, if I had legitimate insurance coverage, I would have even had legitimate EEGs, MRIs, speech and occupational therapy, vision therapy and more… all in 2012, and back at work.  Wyndham employees –as you well know, have terrific benefits.

 

Coastline assured me I am welcome back any time, and we set a tentative goal of October 19th, so that I will have only missed a few weeks.  By then, the CNA/SSA/EDD skewed mess of who paid what may be sorted and I can resume what little hopeful strategies are next.  Since another two weeks have gone by that you couldn’t repond, and it looks like anther week or more for anything tangible to be addressed….I’ll aim again for return to Coastline 10/19 and return to work 12/14/15.   I am not sure if your communication response times meets guidelines of reasonable, but I see there is nothing I can do about that either.

My life has been destroyed because I tried to help my co-workers get in to the office when we were locked out during a snow storm?   Nearly 4 years of my life gone…. and the future looking quite grim.

I hope, Tina, you have learned something from the harm that has been caused to me.  The FBI agent asked, out loud, how can they sleep at night. as I told some of the horrors I have experienced at the hands of the Wyndham Worldwide mockery of a work comp program.  I just told the agent, “Well, psychopaths have no trouble sleeping.  No compassion, no empathy, and they simply pretend to be human.”

Another holiday weekend coming up for all complicit in harming me….. and I have yet another empty weekend in limbo, wondering what’s next.

I am doing all I can to encourage other Injured Workers in America to share their stories with the good peeps at ProPublica… you might have seen that new blog….. maybe you’ll find time to read it this holiday weekend:

GET INVOLVED WITH PROPUBLICA–BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE ARTILLERY TO HELP INJUREDWORKERS SURVIVE?

Thanks for your response.  Talk soon.  I don’t know why you can’t just tell me when the next sales training classes are, so at least I could have a bit of hope about something.

Sincerely,

Linda Ayres, In Pro Per

 

PS

Will someone from some Law Enforcement Agencies kindly review this complaint, and send it to the DIR et al for further investigation?  DOJ probably needs a copy for ongoing RICO violations?  Don’t be scared of the insurance industry thugs…. they seem to be mostly cowards and psychopaths, who take delight in harming injured workers.  They would never last in a penitentiary.

 What kind of Department would demand that someone with a Brain Injury represent self after failures to retain competent legal counsel that understand that there IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BROKEN FINGER AND A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY?  What kind of society would allow such of abuse, for the profits of the few.   

Here is a quote we thought you might find interesting.  “Every worker in California is protected by state laws governing the right to be paid correctly, be safe at work and receive benefits if they are injured on the job,” – Christine Baker     https://www.dir.ca.gov/DIRNews/2014/2014-75.pdf

4 out of 5 voice say GO FOR IT

Super Lawyers in California say this case is not unusual, AT ALL.  MY MY MY.  Hardly seems legitimate, does it?  Be sure to read the letter to Human Resources below, that explains how if there was WORKERS COMPENSATION maze and hoops to jump through, legitimate medical care may have resulted in return to work within months, not the ongoing charade of file churing that has been continuous for nearly 4 years.  With legitimate health insurance, the process would have been simplied to:  1) see a doctor 2) see specialists as recommended 3) get treatment 4) return to work.

Current status is yet another delay, with ADA violations and Civil rights violations for a Court Hearing on a Petition for an Order to Compel yet another evaluation, this time by an ENT doctor.  Note, Injured Worker objects to yet another evaluation, with more than 200 pages of medical records omitted with apparent intent to continue to deny medical care, inaccurate placement of medical records create a false impression of an EEG with clearly diagnosed brain injury as of “2010” and…..misleading statements by defense firm to continue the misleading statements and false allegations perpetrated by the Defense and supported by certain AME/QME doctors and the Information and Assistance Officer.

I found this on Facebook...seems true. Is there Civil Code to go with it?
I found this on Facebook…seems true. Is there Civil Code to go with it?

False/incorrect statements of disability benefits have apparently provided by the carrier to agencies such as EDD and SSA. EDD rewarded the carrier with a bonus of nearly $20,000 for cost shifting and for refusing to pay TTD and for refusing repeatedly to provide medical care.  Penalties for failures to pay in accordance with the law have not been received, and the WCAB – Audit unit has a swath of complaints against all parties, as Injured Worker has had to pay more than $43,000 for medical miles, medical evaluation (including MRI and EEG) and medical TREATMENT.

Take a look at the list of doctors.  Can you tell which have been naughty, and which have been nice, and which will likely rely heavily on the 5th Amendment of the Constitution of these United States of America.  The “officials list” of possibly complicit parties is also available to ‘proper authorities’.

WorkComp Authorized Treatments, with Primary Treating Physician with a Specialty in Orthopedic Surgery: 

By 3/2015, the good doctor’s office said, ‘Obviously, it has to be very clear to you that they are not going provide you with any medical care whatsoever.  You have seen how they have refused to authorize any specialists, specialty care or evaluations.  We had to change the right shoulder injury, well documented in 2012 and MRI confirmed in 2013, to non-industrial or they have threatened to remove our offices from their referral lists.  It’s not personal, it’s just business, and we have to release you now…. go find a brain doctor, we can’t help you. That’s work comp.’

Is YOUR name on THIS list and in these blogs?  Maybe, huh?’

ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP CORRUPTION, MISTAKES, SONDERKOMMANDO, GRAVY TRAIN WRECKS AND MORE HERE….

After reviewing the list of doctors/providers, you may be ‘baffled, puzzled, confused and perplexed’ and asked, “WHAT TREATMENTS DID THIS INJURED WORKER RECEIVE, AND HOW MANY THOUSAND AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WERE SPENT ON EVALUATIONS THAT DID NOT RESULT IN AUTHORIZATION FOR HOW MUCH MEDICALLY APPROPRIATE CARE?  FOLLOW THE MONEY. ALWAYS FOR THE MONEY.

WC SHELL GAME TIMES HOW MANY INJURED WORKERS

 

If YOU make it to the “NAUGHTY LIST”  all thanks go to CNA and defense firm, Grancell Stander et al, and of course, to Wyndham Worldwide for corporate irresponsibility and callous disregard for the life of an injured worker, in a serious breach of human right and ethics, extreme discrimination of injured workers with disabilities, not excluding age and gender discrimination issues.   They could have made a difference. They chose not to.  Bummer.

Will someone let DIR Director Christine Baker know what happens where there are only illegitimate practices and legal chicanery in brain injury cases? Everybody planning to watch #Concussion?

Find Physiatrists and Neuropsychologists and their inter-disciplinary teams for helping Injured Workers with brain injuries, and stop relying on Orthopedic Surgeons who admittedly know little to nothing about brain injuries, although along with chiropractors who are the first doctors often seen after a slip and fall or foot ball injury or car crash.  Most experts will not play the killing games of Workers Compensation, as they took an OATH TO DO NO HARM.  Did you?

Also, encourage investigations into who writes these regurgitations called reports, without benefit of legitimate medical evaluations, and how much money is wasted. Investigate why/how defense firms can have the pattern and practice omission of hundreds of pages of medical records with intent to deny medical care.

Governor Brown, could you kindly have the Attorney General Investigations of corruption at the highest levels of Workers Compensation, and encourage Governors across the USA to do like-wise, and dispatch the National Guard to protect injured workers from these WorkCompsters? The FBI stands ready to help and maybe even the District Attorneys.   Thanks a bunch!

Orders are face to face medical exams for the first set of chronological providers, separated by year by an underline….starting in 2012. (Blatant disregard of ACOEM/MTUS guidelines, but that’s for another blog.) Second set are CorVel and Maximus regurgitation reports, apparently written by RNs or others and signed by a variety of doctors, citing guidelines for necessary treatment, and somehow denying it anyway.  Plenty of expensive bla bla bla.  DO THE MATH. FOLLOW THE MONEY. ASK MORE QUESTIONS?

brain concussions football

For now, let’s just make the list.  Is your name on it?    “Let’s get started.”  Remember, all of these people have made money for seeing/knowing the Injured Worker.  Did they all provide “care” or “medical treatment”?

In contrast, Injured Worker was denied benefits, denied medical care, forced to file for welfare with Social Services and rely on the charity of friends and the Salvation Army—-proving that with Wyndham Timeshare, there are “No Free Gifts” and there is blatant and callous disregard for lives of injured workers and customers.  A friend shared this link with more news on how Wyndham Worldwide behaves in the global marketplace.

While WCAB seems to deem “evaluation after evaluation after evaluation” as evidence of InjuredWorkers receiving medical care, the Information and Assistance Officer, last resort for help for unrepresented Injured Workers, is not a doctor, nor a lawyer, and practice without those licenses is questionable indeed.

Join the Discussin — you or someone you love could be next! http://www.concussion-movie.com/ http://www.concussion-movie.com/#

The dubiousness appears compounded when good doctors properly make legitimate and conservative recommendations for immediate and necessary care, only to have the recommendations denied by attorneys and adjusters in 2012, then, aided and abetted by Team CorVel.  Advising an Injured Worker to “have better control” of counsel when represented is a joke—if CAAA can’t police their own members, how can a Worker with a Brain Injury be expected to know when representation proves to be totally incompetent, dangerous, and worse?

CAB Commissioners and DIR seem complicit in the Gravy Train, at least in this case, which so many Super Lawyers indicate is ‘just how it is’ — happens to everyone — very common case, or maybe they just don’t know.  More on attorneys in another blog.

Follow this blog for more details that everybody knows but has kept the dirty secrets behind closed doors, while American workers and taxpayers pay and pay and pay—-with life, liberty and justice for none attacked by the Workers Compensation maiming killing brigades.

By the time you finish reading this blog, you will have a better idea of why Workers Compensation Survivors call it a GRAVY TRAIN WRECK.  (Some of these doctors were paid by CNA, some were paid by CIGNA, some were paid by the Injured Worker (unreimbursed medical expenses and miles to date exceed $43,300 – failures to receive adequate treatment have caused permanent and irreparable damage to IW.

Without WorkersCompensation, legitimate insurance would have facilitated care that would have been immediate, expert, reasonable, beneficial and IW may have returned to work within months, back in 2012. Without care, Injured Worker has been advised to make plans for Assisted Living in light of risk of dementia, with a need for personal assistance now.  Thanks WorkCompsters!

The good news is that Tina Jordan, HR Regional Director at Wyndham Worldwide in San Diego graciously and kindly authorized the discount hotel vouchers so that I will be able to continue the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program for the Summer Session, which begins June 20th and she kindly said more are needed, to let her know.

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!”

There is a company that, as part of their cost-savings recommendations, recommends that Employers send ‘get well cards’ to their injured workers immediately with regular communication toward return to work.  (My address is below if any stakeholders want to begin to implement such a program and see where it takes things.) http://wcmanual.com/get-well-cards-package-of-10/  More tips below.

As most of you know, Wyndham HR was advised, apparently by defense, that they could not even speak to me, and when in December 2014 I attended a public open house – no resume required – come meet the managers and find out about Wyndham Worldwide – I was the only attendee from the public, but management made me sit in the empty room for about 45 minutes then politely told me they could not talk to me, couldn’t help me in any way, and that I would have to leave.  I was able to see a few former co-workers as they left the office, and that was fun and heart warming.  I told one former manager that I’m not quite right in the head yet and he, in kind and sales professional form say, ‘Don’t you worry about that, when you come back we’ll help you get your mojo back…’ or words to that effect, being encouraging and welcoming.

Coastline ABI Program is helping me discover compensatory skills to ‘do life’ again, and I am very grateful.  It was the kindest letter I have received from Wyndham since the injury, and I hope to hear back on extension of leave accommodation requested, and that we will commence the interactive process required by FEHA, so that I can get back to work when medically released.

The doctors are not hopeful of my return to work this year, but I am.  A second year at Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program has been suggested by multiple people, and I do not like the label of being “100% disabled”…..my accountant used the term on my taxes as she said, “Linda, it’s been over 3 years.  Do you really think you will ever be able to return to work?”  NOBODY LIKES TERM DISABLED, AND I AM DISABLED BECAUSE OF CNA’S REFUSAL TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE REASONABLE AND NECESSARY MEDICAL CARE IN 2012.  Monsters, but friends tell me, “Those lawyers are just doing their jobs” and I always say, “So did the Sonderkommando!  Just following orders is an insufficient defense!”

Here is the EDD  6/1/ 15 “Explanation of Benefit Payment Record” from 2012 through 2014. [available to the public upon request at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com]  Also attached are CNA print outs.  [Available to the public upon request at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com]  My math skills have been reduced dramatically since the injury, and I can’t make senses of any of this.  I just know that CNA has gotten away with some pretty coarse ‘cooking of books’ and violations of labor codes in initial refusals to pay TTD, refusals to provide medical care, and continuous outrageous refusals to reimburse simply miles to their doctors, and medically necessary treatments that were recommended but denied by non-doctors—being lawyers and adjusters without medical expertise, further evidenced below.

I am awaiting response from appeal of February/March 2015 from another industry leased/owned company called MAXIMUS.  Defense sent them exparte records with probable intent to continue to deny medical care, and we’ll see if Maximus deals with medical realities or just follows orders of their benefactors. CorVel certainly appears to follow implied directions of the defense counsel, even when an idiot would questions some of the directions.  A YELP review of some of their doctors, including their acupuncture and dope dealing neurologists who perform ‘independent medical reviews’ on behalf of CorVel  would make you laugh, to lighten the intensity of the allegations herewith.  FOLLOW THE MONEY, ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY.

Will you let me know the findings of your accounting people also?  I am still working on organizing medical expenses to submit that may serve as further offsets.  I have spent more than $35,000 out of pocket to stay alive, despite the interference of CNA and their legal counsel in their continuous pattern of malicious, callous and willful harm, and ‘deny medical care by any means necessary’ approach to breaches of fiduciary responsibilities.

Now they want me to see an Ear Nose and Throat doctor for my brain injury, a doctor’s office that admittedly has no knowledge of brain injury.  As loss of hearing was mentioned in a very comprehensive auditory processing evaluation performed at the SCRIPPS Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program last summer (2014) now the Defense attorney wants an ENT to dispute it so they can continue to  refuse to provide auditory devices and auditory therapy.

That ENT request is the same nonsense as their leased/owned neurologists who have no clue that vision processing issues are a consequence of brain injury, and ‘corrected vision’ with prism lenses (that CNA also refused to pay for, or even authorize evaluations since 2012. The Judge refused my ADA requests to be seen and heard regarding this matter, as is another pattern and practice of WCAB Court I have experienced repeatedly since 2012.

I fullly expect Grancell to demand a podiatrist QME for my right ankle any day now.

I don’t know where the Workcompsters find their doctors and other participants, but it was heart warming to read about the recent bust of that dirty doctor ring in New Jersey last week.  I hope the FBI commences investigations into WorkComp, in California, with my case.

I don’t know how these records show the approximately $49K payout by EDD and the approximately $31K payback by CNA, with a bonus of approximately $18K by negotiated discount to CNA, apparently from Taxpayer coffers?

By copy, I am letting the CNA Adjuster know the actuals paid by EDD and asking if CNA wants to adjust their allegations that they “paid 104 weeks”…. the schedules of payments certainly dispute that, don’t they?  They may also want to revisit their legal responsibilities to pay on-going estimated permanent disability payments commencing 14 days after last TTD payment….which appears to be … May 2014 by EDD?

#5 Huff-Post has a series of contributors writing about Brain Injuries, that the adjusters and doctors might be wise to review. https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=huff+post+brain+injury On the whole, it does seem that Brain Injury Survivors have much more information about symptoms, consequences and treatments that the vast majority of the AMA and ABA crowds..and LinkedIn has a wealth of resources, as does Facebook.  THINK THINK THINK MOFOS thanks

‘Wyndham  TIMESHARE SETTLES Brain Injury Case after 3.5 years for $3.5 MILLION’

Rock, Paper, Scissors!  ‘Balls, Boobs, Brains!’

 

“BTW – I keep asking for an attorney for you. It’s tough. The perception is that your case isn’t big enough under current law, so getting someone to pay attention to it is very difficult.”  – Anonymous

“So that means that breasts and testicles are more valuable than brains? !?” ASKS THE INJURED WORKER!

 

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

Note:  Chris Asvar did his job for his young client: “LOS ANGELES – January 25, 2012.  Los Angeles-based attorney Christopher Asvar has just secured the highest known workers’ compensation insurance settlements in California history, totaling $8.9 million on behalf of his young client who suffered a work-place traumatic brain injury.”    

Note:  Romano Trust vs Sedgwick apparently gives #WorkCompsters a green light to maim and kill injured workers in California without recourse, and sometimes a fine of $100,000, if pushed.

America! America!  What a national shame!

 

rock paper scissors

 CNA / Grancell Defense Team apologizes for the misunderstandings and failures that preceded settlement.  CA ADJ8181903

.

Nawwww, they won’t even authorize prism neuro-optometric lenses or auditory processing devices, nor chiropractic and acupuncture for pain relief, nor will they replace resigned primary treating doctors without a Utilization Review, that there is no doctor to make such a request, and the CNA 25+ year veteran Claims Adjuster has no authority apparently other than to sign a form that says ‘it’s too early to determine if there is any permanent injury’ so we’ll look again in 90 days.  D’oh.  They didn’t pay temp total disability in 2012-2013, and the State did, then discounted payback, causing Injured Worker to lose the ’52 weeks’ that would have been available had they paid the 104 weeks, as required by law and directed to via Court hearing in April 2012.

.

They scoffed at the law and bullied the injured worker and doctors then, and continue to scoff  and bully today.  They have help.  CorVel and Maximus, and a handful of industry leased/owned doctors who write inaccurate reports that could be deemed fraudulent if taken to trial.  WCAB guidelines indicate estimated Permanent Disability payments are to commence within 14 days of final TTD payment, which was May 2014, in a chunk after EDD and local politicians became involved, since WCAB – Riverside refused repeatedly to help injured worker get treatment or benefits, in clear violations of ADA and EEOC.   Grancell continues the same course of action, profitting by taxpayer ignorance and apathy as they bilk California’s coffers and destroy the California WorkForce….

 

IMG_0418

See details at https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts/   Someone else just recently did a blog on how #WorkCompsters value testicles over breasts. Astonishing!

 

They want me to see an Ear Nose and Throat Doctor to dispute an extensive auditory processing evaluation of last year performed at SCRIPPS Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center in Encinitas, California.  What’s next, will they demand that I see a Podiatrist to dispute the Audiologists, Neurologists, Neuropsychologists, Orthopedic Surgeons, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists and Functional Neurology Experts, along with Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and Speech Therapists, and focus on the often referenced sprained ankle of 1/9/12?  Oh yes, I think they need a dozen neuro-psych reports till they find one they like; “Doctor Shopping and File Churning” enhances bottom lines for WorkComp Defense firms?  D’oh! In November 2012, defense attempted to coerce settlement of the customary $100,000 after initial attempts at obfuscation of medical evidence and failures to provide necessary evaluations and treatments that first year.  Their report of future medical was extensive— and that was prior to getting all the facts of the actual extent of the injuries.  What say their Risk Peeps now.  They are all looking at my LinkedIn Profile.

.

Anybody with “Juevos” at CNA willing to step up to settlement?  Maybe somebody from Thomas Motamed’s office?

 .

For the record, treatments and evaluations provided by Grancell/CNA and self-procured are discussed in these blogs:

https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/2015/02/13/workcomp-evaluations-are-not-treatments/

 

Well, at least the ‘cost burden has been shifted’ to the Social Security Administration and Medicare due to the brain injury upon evaluation of all medical records.  How’s that for bilking the public after more than 3 years of torturing and causing permanent disabilities to an injured worker?   I am grateful and the experience at the SSA was kind, compassionate and an encounter with people of integrity, in sharp contrast to the horrors of Workers Compensation experiences.

Stephen Hawking

Add the approximately $16,000 CNA was paid by the State of California in the form of a deep discount on reimbursements for EDD payment in the first year because CNA refused to pay TTD?

 

CNA is really making big bucks on this “Exclusive Remedy” huh?

 

How much does the insurance broker make in commissions on the Wyndham account?  SEC or some regulatory agencies requires Wyndham to provide such information to shareholders when requested; I have requested approximately 5 times in more than that many months, to no avail.  It may have something to do with allegations that the Wyndham Board and Risk Management have some members with questionable ties to the insurance industry?  I heard the stories, but they didn’t quite compute in my brain.

#WorkCompChat; O SAY CAN YOU SEE?

 

flag distress signal

Could the lack of  competent representation for injured workers be related to these issues?

Below are more insights for possible incorporation to future industry blogs…from an Injured Worker point of view, and something the legal people alleging to represent injured workers are also clueless about.
.
Attorneys in CA like to shrug and say they know nothing about Social Security and Employment Law and ADA Compliance and how it all interfaces with one the big scam.
 .
Heck, even the Defense Counsel who is a “Partner/Shareholder” boasts of his incompetence regarding ADA and Employment Law!  D’oh!  It takes a Psychopath, huh?! A WorkComp attorney who is oblivious to SSA guidelines, ADA, Employment Law and social media fight-back-work arounds is an idiot and a menace to society, imho.  Ditto for return to work trials, guidelines, strategies etc.
 .
Social Security has a rehabilitation component called PASS (available to me for the next year or so) where they may help me create a consulting business or something I can do from behind my computer, if Wydham continues to fail to engage in the interactive process, and particularly if they wrongfully terminate me.  There are also some tax incentives to corporations that hire disabled Americans.  I am hopeful that if I cannot return to face-to-face selling that Wyndham may create a position so that I can help clean up the desperate EPIC FAIL of a WorkComp system currently in place, and that I may be able to help train HR and Staff on proper handling of workplace injuries, and when to do simple things like “CALL 911”
 .
The SSA paperwork also advises me to submit medical expenses that I had to pay within 30 days, which it sounds like they may reimburse since CNA refused to.  A friend may help me assemble that next week.  It’s half done, like so many of my paper projects.  Pure cost burden shifting, and that’s one of the items I will ask the Senators to help me with.  Somebody can reimburse my $30k out of pocket medical and rehab expenses, and the shortfall of $18,000 California gave in the form of deep reimbursement demand discount to CNA for refusing to pay TTD in 2012 – 2013 .  Offset for my shortened life span and loss of earning capacity, along with potential devasting future medical is a factor.  Continuation at the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program through December 2015 is very important to maximize potential return to work, although a second year is recommended, and both will be impossible without funds. Your try living on $1,700/month with a mountain of bills behind you, and a brain that works like a 286 computer on dial-up, with virtually no working memory. Does a $20,000 annual income put me in the sheer poverty category?  That’s a very harsh transition from being a fun-loving, globe trotting vacation sales executive, unable to return to work due to auditory, vision, speech and other processing issues from the fall of 1/9/12.  The manager said, “Just rub some dirt on it and you’ll be fine’…. nice try, but it didn’t work.
 .
If you know of a California attorney with integrity, courage, smarts and staff to take on this multi-dimensional case, please contact me directly at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com or via phone at 760 368 7236.  Know that the Defense Firm is big on bullying doctors, injured workers, and even, apparently, structured settlement peeps. D’oh.  Mediation was repeatedly refused by defense.  Callous disregard for human life is the SOP, along with bullying and threats and blatant disregard for law, order and life.
 .
It is my hope and intention to return to work by the end of the year, even though all the medical evidence indicates that is highly improbable due to the extend of the brain injuries.  Yes, I can type, but if any CAAA attorney believes that the ability to type indicates no brain injury, they should turn in their license to practice.  They are  incompetent to allege to represent any injured worker, let alone a brain injury case, and such ignorance and incompentence presents imminent danger to the working public.
 .
Remember the quote by Chris Asvar (who won’t take the case because prior counsel and too many others ‘didn’t do their job’)…..I’ve asked again, but won’t hold my breath on a response this year either.  Read it again.  LET IT SINK IN.
 .
“In describing this class of traumatic brain injury”, says Asvar, “the term ‘mild’ is an absolute misnomer given the severity of possible complications and repercussions.” He adds, “Dismissing someone’s brain injury as ‘mild’ is akin to saying someone is ‘mildly’ paraplegic.” Chris Asvar, Esq.http://www.asvarlaw.com/casestudies/

Subject: LINDA AYRES VS. WYNDHAM WORLDWIDE LTD 121329 2012-11-13-0149-LTD-01 / WWID 415287 / CNA E3269102

 

Dear Steve,

 

Happy New Year to you, too.  I’m so grateful I can write and say nice things about Matrix/Reliance, and particularly you and Stephen Buchs.  Thank you, from me, and on behalf of other Wyndham employees.  At least one of the insurance providers honors fiduciary responsiblities.

 

This is a little long to bring some of the recipients also up to speed.  The bottom line for you is, can you put my disability payments on auto-payment.  I think you know the rest of the content.

 

 

I understand you are handling my claim again, so here is an updated progress report from Dr. Hilda Chalgujian, now the primary treating doctor, a neuro-psychologist, since the Orthopedic Surgeon now says he can’t do anything about getting brain treatment, as evidenced in 2 years of asking, so he has deferred to Dr. Hilda and apparently washed his hands of my case, as evidenced by cancelled December appointment.

 

I just received Dr. Hilda’s report, dated 2/6/15; it is attached.

 

Please make it a part of my medical records.  I am copying Steve Buchs, in case he is still handling medical records related things.  (Also copying CNA and defense counsel.)

 

I have also requested an extension of the leave of absence from Wyndham until December 1, 2015.  If I can get back to work before then, I’m doing all I can to make it happen, despite the terrorism of the defense firm. Remember, the first neuro-psychologist, Dr. Kang, in February 2012, referred by Dr. DeGoede, Clinical Psychologist, referred by CIGNA EAP program, who intially referred to Dr. Esmael Septi, Neurologist, who was on the alleged MPN list, but refused to see me when I appeared for appointment in February 2012, then his office perjured when it said I failed to appear.  Anyway, Dr. Kang said that with Speech Therapy with Cognitive Remediation, I would likely have been back to work in months…in 2012.   Then the attorney moved me to Dr. Marcel Ponton, also a clinical psychologist, in April 2012.  Dr. Kang thought it was just for a second opinion and that she was continuing to treat me.  She was surprised to learn last year when I contacted her that I still had not received Speech Therapy, or any of the medically necessary treatment Dr. Ponton had requested, such as vision therapy, neuro-evaluations, EEG neuro-feedback and more.  What a fiasco.

 

Here is an excellent article about TBI, and the first year.  It’s going viral.  My comments may already be buried since they were of the first ones.

Amy is just at the one year marker, and therefore has a shot at some recovery, and restorative treatments. If I didn’t have to fight workers comp, I might be better too.  Dr. Hilda’s comments in her report on what fighting does to me/for me are …. alarming.

 

Read the article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/amy-zellmer/life-with-a-traumatic-brain-injury_b_6580812.html

 

CNA’s failures to treat denied me any recovery there, so now all I can hope for is “compensatory strategies’ to deal with the devasting injuries.  Hmph.  All they had to do was give me some of the requested medical care, but they couldn’t do that.   They couldn’t follow the ACOEM/MTUS/NIH guidelines.  My loss.

 

Can you set up automatic deposit for my disability payments?  I am staying in a hotel (a Wyndham property, kindly at a discounted rate by Wyndham Human Resources) so that I can attend the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program 3-4 nites a week.  As you know, I have to pay for it, as I have had to pay for most all the medically necessary treatment I have received to date.   I can’t rent a place yet, since it looks like the insurance carrier’s defense firm is up to more no good.  I have been advised by others to not sign a lease, even a six months lease, to make it cognitively easier to be at the Coastline program.

 

I have a social security hearing scheduled  (I will have to miss program time one or two days to facilitate that) but assuming they finally approve my claim, I will then have the money to continue the Coastline program through December.  I am also seeking financial aid to make it possible, and also scholarship money.  It seems to be my only hope left.  I’m really struggling with organizing the medical records to submit, and the Crisis Center Social Worker may come and help me again Friday; I hope so.  She couldn’t make it last week.

 

The WorkComp defense carrier is continuing with legal chicanery and what I call ‘terrorism and bullying’, and are pulling me into Court on 4/8/15 (my birthday, also causing missing Coastline program time to see if a Judge will support their chicanery; I had asked them to postpone till at least June to let me be at Coastline without their terrorism, but no, they can’t do that.  I willl ask the Judge for a postponement, even if it requires a note from the District Attorney.

 

It seems to me that CNA could simply have someone competent review the reports of prior neuro-pscyhologists and see what remains to be done before requesting a Judge to compel.

 

I am fighting still their denials to provide medically necessary treatment.  Nobody will say CNA has done right by first/second year treatment of chiropractic and clinical psychology, and 6 physical therapy treatments, and in 2014, some speech, occupational and more pt for clearly diagnosed brain injuries.  ACOEM/MTUS/NIH have a far different criteria for treating brain injury than does CNA, hence, I have been off work more than 3 years. Monsters.

 

I believe CNA or their Defense Carrier is requesting records from you.   I am requesting also that this current narrative report from Dr. Chalgujian be included.

 

I am overwhelmed by all the legal stuff I received Thursday, with more chicanery from that CorVel company, under investigations in Texas for their abuse of injured workers.  I hope California will follow suit.  They simply follow the directions of the adjuster, as I have been told directly, even though I represent myself in pro per.  They do nothing without adjuster approval, according to one of their supervisors.  They have also violated my HIPPA and ADA rights.  Not your problem, but if they are requesting anything from you, you need to know who/what they are.

 

Many thanks.  Please let me know about the auto-deposit and any forms you need me to sign.

 

Thanks Steve.  I promise to do my best not to be a bother.  I have even called my favorite prayer line and asked them to help pray me out from under these monsters to get to settlement so I can get on with my life, what’s left of it.  When two or three are gathered together in prayer, mountains move!

 

LinkedIn is also helpful.  ;D  I’m learning lots about surviving #WorkComp.  CNA’s training department has viewed my profile repeatedly, several other insurance executives, including Sedgwick.  That makes me wonder if the industry realizes that CNA’s contract for Wyndham might be up for grabs after this case, and if more like it are exposed.  It’s quite awful what they have done.  There are even Judges and law enforcment peeps viewing my profile, regularly.  I try to keep the information fresh, although I do perseverate a bit, and appear to be tangential at times…. part of the TBI.

This blog, ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS, is an example of what can happen when a corporation has a policy of …

.

Don’t call 9-11, don’t drive a head-injured worker to a hospital or emergency room, have a good laugh at the fall in a sales meeting, encourage completing work shift then driving 20 miles down an icy-mountain road then 40 more miles of desert 2-lane road to get to “go to any doctor that takes work comp insurance” and provides an incomplete DWC-1 form (no insurance carrier info; then emails later with a list of providers that no longer accept work comp insurance and demands to cease seeing the doctor seen on date of injury; defense firm later insists said action is “proper service” of an alleged ‘MPN’), no-get-well-wishes, no follow up, erroneous info, reliance on EAP to facilitate first doctors (shifting burden to health insurance vs work comp carrier) (then adjuster has extensive phone conversation with EAP designated doctor regarding severity of injuries and shortly thereafter terminates benefits, stiffing said doctor for 4 appointment payments also),  no intervention to help an injured worker for nearly 3 years, no participation in FEHA interactive process, no apparent return to work program–with or without ADA accommodations, “the silent treatment” if pro-active nearly destitute injured worker is the only attendee at a corporate public JOB FAIR in an attempt to facilitate “RTW,”

Further policies appear to include introduction of injured worker to the State Welfare Systems and the generosity of charitable organizations such as THE SALVATION ARMY because of failures to provide medically necessary treatment for ‘going on 3 years’ and refusing to pay disability benefits, causing loss of professional credentials and complicating work injuries because of failures to provide immediate, reasonable and necessary medical care and shifting all burdens of the WorkComp policy benefits to others….

Defense firm attempted to coerce first year premature Settlement, without repeatedly requested brain injury evaluations and treatments,  for $100k less attorney fees, that required full release of all liability, it required resignation from job, forfeiture of any/all State disability/Medicare benefits for “3 years” with callous disregard for life itself.  File appears to have been churned churned churned repeatedly.  Injured worker is out of pocket nearly $30,000, for self-procuring physician requested treatments and evaluations that the insurance carrier or and defense firm denied repeatedly until the new law, when the buck could be further passed on ‘non-recommendations’ for treatment by non-brain injury experts.

District Attorney indicated the complaints “have merit”….but that was quite a while ago.  EEOC asked why the brain-injured worker waited so long to complain.  One lawyer, after repeated attempts to find competent legal representation, after file review, concluded with the question, “So why did you wait more than 2 years for medical care for a brain injury?”  D’oh!

IF THAT’S WORK COMP, WE, THE INJURED WORKERS SAY…. NO THANKS TO THOSE WHO PLACE “PROFITS BEFORE LIVES”

.

Earlier in 2014, the State Adult Protective Services intervened in response to complaints of financial terrorism compounding the failures to provide medical treatment for, at that time, over two years.

Ask About Brain Injuries and “Perseveration” of pen, words, thoughts and neuro-misfirings; for those in #WorkComp who do not know, the “brain” is a body part located in the head region.  A witnessed slip and fall “backwards” on ice only has the “skull” to break the fall; see illustration:

WE’LL DO MORE LATER.  THERE WERE SOME TIME WASTING DISTRACTIONS AND HEATED ALLEGATIONS FOR AN INJURED WORKER TO CONSIDER PARTICIPATION IN AN “INDUSTRY” EVENT SUCH AS #CompLaude nominations and nominees FROM A SMALL GROUP OF ANGRY INJURED WORKERS –CONCERNED ABOUT THE UNCONSTITUTIONALITY OF WORKCOMP AND MORE—WHEN ASKED TO SHARE THEIR STORIES FOR A NEW INJURED WORKER BLOG THAT WAS INTENDED TO BE AVAILABLE FOR THIS EVENT. OH WELL.   THEY BLEW IT AGAIN!  CARPE DIEM, Y’ALL.

THE SOCIAL MEDIA ATTACKS APPEARED TO BE FROM AGENT PROVACTEURS ATTEMPTING TO DERAIL ALL EFFORTS TO FIND THOSE HELPING –NOT HURTING– and thereby possibly extending lives IN THE WORK COMP USA PROCESSES.

  1. Remember about PIMM patsies. Forget about BS of “establishing trust”. The first thing PIMM destroys is trust and you need to be aware that he tries to entice your weaker colleagues to spy on you. In such environment a weaker personalities often adopts the role of patsy as a self-protection mechanism and might even comply and even try to provoke you to “frank talk” that will be reported to PIMM. The environment PIMM creates is characterized by old Latin quote “Homo homini lupus est” ( Man is a wolf to his fellow-man.) They build up a power base and because they are paranoid, they turn all subordinates into paranoia wrecks: everyone becomes afraid of everyone else and the work culture begins to reflect the personality of the leader. Team soon became resemble a pack of frightened dogs.   See more here: http://www.softpanorama.org/Social/Toxic_managers/Communication/rules_of_verbal_self_defense.shtml

    In October 2014, I enrolled in the Coastline ABI program.  Without TTD benefits and LTD benefits, the way to continue participation in this one-to-two year program remains an unsolved mystery.  A “Go-Fund-Me” fundraising event within the Timeshare and TBI world may be necessary if Wyndham and it’s agents continue to shirk legal and moral responsiblities.

    Acquired Brain Injury

But you need the structure in order to function in your everyday life. So, you start to rebuild… (read more : view the blog archive)

    What Is the ABI Program?

    Coastline’s ABI Program is a demanding one-year educational program designed to provide structured cognitive retraining for adults who have sustained a brain injury due to traumatic (such as a motor vehicle accident or fall) or non-traumatic (such as a non-age-related stroke, brain tumor or infection) injuries.

    Each year, according to the Brain Injury Association, more than 700,000 Americans sustain brain damage from traumatic head injuries alone. Most are between the ages of 15 and 30 – young, active, involved individuals, suddenly and unexpectedly disabled.

    In many cases, impaired attention and concentration, memory disturbances, language disabilities, and/or loss of reasoning skills prevent these individuals from resuming even minimal pre-accident activities. Awareness of limitations and shattered career and personal goals lead to frustration and depression, further contributing to the individual’s unemployment, isolation and alienation from friends, family and community.

    Coastline’s ABI Program has developed a unique curriculum to address these special needs. The ABI Program emphasizes cognitive retraining, socialization, and career development to promote individual responsibility and independence. Students in the program learn strategies to compensate for deficits in:

    • Verbal skills
    • Memory
    • Figural skills
    • Critical thinking
    • Attention
    • Organization

    With a strong focus on emotional adjustment to brain injury and appropriate psycho-social skills, the program teaches students to apply these skills to practical, real-life home and work environments.

    Coastline’s ABI Program also offers the following program support services:

    • Neuroeducational Assessment
    • Counseling for students and their families
    • “Future Planning Development” (whether for employment, training, or volunteering).

    Classes meet Monday through Thursday, four hours per day. The school year includes two 16-week semesters and a five week summer session.
    Classes are held at Coastline’s Newport Beach Center, 1515 Monrovia, Newport Beach, CA 92663.

    And if you are the Offending Defense Firm or any of the questionable WorkComp Providers in this case that have also contributed to the harm and further injury of other #InjuredWorkers, please and thank you, consider some restitution via contributions to COASTLINE ABI FOUNDATION.
    work comp guidelines
    If my case ever settles, I will ask the Judge to ensure that the 4 law firms who took on my case [#1-30 days, #2-9 months, #3-90 days, #4-45 days (duration times are approximate)]….clearly without any knowledge of handling a Brain Injury Case, did cause further egregious harm and any with liens should be provided with an equal share of 15% of the NOTHING THEY PRODUCED.  Sanctions would be appropriate, but not likely.
    NAIDW TBI AWARENESS
    The Judge, with Structured Settlement recommendations, will also be asked to designate the actual “15% legal fees’ to be given to the Coastline ABI Foundation, in lump sum or settlement arrangement.
    world is a dangerous place
    The Judge will also be asked that the insurance carrier, that was awarded approximately $16,000 by the State of California in 2014, EDD department, for REFUSAL TO PAY TTD to injured worker in 2012/2013 DONATES A LIKE OR GREATER AMOUNT FROM CORPORATE PROFITS TO COASTLINE ABI.
    Very interesting book keeping practices of all parties.  Wyndham remains silent.
    take care of each other
    Investigations into the practice of using injured worker or State Taxpayer funds to reward insurance companies for breach of fiduciary responsibilities and breach of Labor Codes surely deserves further investigations, even though it appears to be another ‘pattern of practice’ known by all, harming only the injured workers it impacts.
    To the Insurance Company Dude who asked, among other things, “…when ARE you going to die?” in a discussion of refusals to provide medically necessary treatment for nearly 3 years, all I can say is, “Not yet, Dude, not just yet.”

What are THREE QUESTIONS you would ask of injured workers to help you help save their lives?

Are there any resources YOU would encourage to be included in a directory for the WorkComp Communities…InjuredWorkers, Doctors, Lawyers, Chiefs etc.  https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/about/

TriageNow, a WorkComp phone nurse group was recently stumbled upon and we suggested they contact Wyndham since Wyndham’s staff are clueless on how to handle a worker injury.  They are following on Twitter now. https://twitter.com/LindaAyres311
.
LinkedIn is proving to be a great place for outreach, and I keep making it to the top of the Wyndham stats. https://www.linkedin.com/in/lindaayres311  Maybe for YOUR level of investigative reporting, you can work in an interview with some Wyndham key executives?
.
Their top peeps are in New Jersey http://www.wyndhamworldwide.com/about-wyndham-worldwide/our-leadership  You or one of your colleagues could approach them with an angle that perhaps you can help solve their future work comp dilemmas and the bad will that will no doubt build.

Could I pretty please ask your opinion on some questions to ask of other injured workers?  What is it that YOU believe is needed to reach professionals in the work comp community, who are not party to the atrocities that are happening everyday, everywhere? Do you have a list of standard questions?
If you can’t, no worries, We’ll take another route, and thank you again for your consideration.
social networking
We will ask some of my friends and injured worker pals for their stories, and we will render them anonymous, so that they can be shared and explored without emotions. (see email thread below)
.

We (me and a few Injured Friends and Warriors) hope to have a new website up and running before the WorkComp Laude Awards Gala, and we would like to have a questionnaire Survey available to facilitate further communications.

Comp Laude Awards  2014
One particular e-group of ‘radical’ and “outspoken” and “knowledgeable” injured workers deals with the unconstitutionality of WorkComp in California, and a variety of other whinings about the government collusion with the insurance company bad guys.  Kaiser, State, Sedgwick, CNA…a bunch of big names involved.  All have had poor experiences with InjuredWorker legal representation, much like my challenge with incompetent counsels.
 .
As we know, that saves no lives, and merely adds to profit margins for the few.  Many have been fighting in the system for 10-20 years.  Yikes, that’s unfathomable to me.  The moment I saw the real deal and got more of marbles back, the faster I wanted out.  Looks like that won’t be happening, so I will kick and scream and expose to expunge, till death do us part.
 .
When I told that particular e-group about the Comp Laude nomination as an Injured Worker, omg, the dirt started flinging, calling me an ‘industry hack’ and worse… Sadly, many have been in the “system” for 10-20+ years, and some seem to be casualties of the opiate drug wars conducted by work comp as well.
.go save yourself from the zombies
I had tried to have coffee with one (having had a lengthy phone conversation in the summer listening to the work comp sad tale, unable to get in a word edgewise).  I was going to see about extending an invitation to the 12/6/14 Gala, and omg, all hell broke lose….I won’t be in touch with them anymore, jeeeze! It was like dealing with defense counsels or I & A agents. Learned Helplessness, Institutionalization and being a “Victim” is apparently a real consequence of ‘doing time’ in WorkComp in America.
.
There are many injured workers groups on social media, quietly fighting for their lives.  Some not even telling their friends and neighbors of the horrors of fighting for basic medical care and basic temporary disability benefits or “incapacitation” benefits.  There is no reason to put up with suspected agents of disinformation; we injured workers have our hands full dealing with defense counsels, insurance companies, their owned doctors etc. and work comp judiciaries etc.

[They even accused me of not having a brain injury at all…. and made me wonder who THEY worked for…..I didn’t even read half of their emails…D’oh…. Talk about mean-spiritedness!   If I didn’t have a brain injury, there is no way I would be in this mess, imho.]
 .bill casey quote
DePaolo’s blogs are excellent, but the ‘fraud factors’ seem real hard to grasp, from an insider perspective.  It’s crystal clear as a “victim of WorkComp”…. I haven’t counted how many doctors have applauded my big mouth and said, “Somebody’s got to do it” as they eliminate injured workers from their portfolios.
 .
I changed my Orthopedic regular 45 day visit from December 5 so that I can be rested for the December 6th experience.  The doctor’s office was THRILLED to hear that I was nominated as a finalist for the CompLaude Awards.  She said, “Tell how how bad things are.  They need to hear someone.  Your case should have been gone a long time ago!”…. and she knows how hard they have fought to try to get me to a brain injury specialist.  They couldn’t even get me to a neurologist.  D’oh.
.
I thanked her and giggled and said, “I’m a finalist, but politically speaking, I don’t think they can dare to let me win.”….. But it is still an honor and opportunity, which I take seriously.
 .
Here’s the response I sent to that private injured worker e-group, in response to their hope that Ralph Nader will save them.  D’oh.   [They called it self-serving, so, it’s sort of a no-win situation dealing with hammered, drugged and chemically poisoned Prisoners of WorkComp….whew ]  Anyhow,
 .
If any of it strikes a chord and you want to share your thoughts informally to give it more structure, and more reach to your peeps, please send me an email or leave me a voice mail.  (and no, I won’t plaster your email all over the internet as I was morally required to do with the CNA question, “….Tell me, Linda, when ARE you going to die?”  
 .
I think CNA bought Wyndham some more legal challenges with that one…. seems to violate some EEOC Civil Rights laws that the Courts seem to be holding employers liable for bad deeds of their vendors.  I”m investigating further.)  ;D

“We ARE the media now” …..working like Antz, telling our friends and neighbors about #WorkComp atrocities.

(If you forward my comments to your friends, please be respectful of others in the thread and copy and paste to a new email for their privacy)

Did any of you have a chance to see my piece in this blog and listen to the 3 minute audio of the dude from CNA insurance asking, among other things, “So, tell me Linda, when ARE you going to die?”. Yes, its recorded and all over social media.

See more here: http://lucyoccupy.com/

That conversation might be a civil suit for which my employer, WyndhamWorldwide, may be held culpable as well.

My whole story is in the blog, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains.http://askaboutworkerscompgavytrains.com/ see the blogs and then see the Resource page and the list of posts page.

Each of you are welcomed and encouraged to follow these blogs for updates.

I reached out to one of you recently to meet for coffee and I got a polite “can’t”… It wasn’t a social call.

Are you kidding me??! If y’all can’t bother to explore new opportunities, you’ll die whining.

Somebody else in this group said my posts may be pretty but they are useless. Fine. Block me.

WE are the Media Now. Ain’t nobody gonna help us, so we need to find new strategies.

WorkComp activism can be quite like “anti-nuke” activism……heavily infiltrated and hell bent on keeping people running in square circles, diefying paid mouth-pieces.

Re-read the common wisdom of “the 25 rules of disinformation” and the 8 traits of disinformationists”

Let me know if you get any insights or can share them with your friends and lawyers.

Stay tuned. More coming up, including but not limited to a new website.

If you are interested, send me a 500-700 words general summary of your story….date of injury, extent of injuries, all diagnosis, treatment, complications, pay, ever return to work, on social security, represented now? How many attorneys, prospects for the future. Your age at injury, and age now?
Gender? Overall health today? Better or worse?

Working? What needs to happen for return to work, if an option.

We want at least ten stories to start with. Include employer name and insurer, if you care to. First rounds may be more general and nation and ANONYMOUS.

Write a conclusion to finish this statement:

“The worst thing is ________________________.””What helped me most was:____________________________________””What I want now is:_____________________________________.””The non-psychopaths of the WorkComp industry can best help me, and other injured workers like me, if they will _____________________________.”If I had an open mic and 2 minutes I would say _____________________________________ to (whom/what) ___________________”

Any groups you would recommend? Include their social media links: ________________________________________________

I usually use this hashtag in my posts:
