A recent inquiry arrived regarding potentials for guest blogs. I have always wanted to highlight the best, most brilliant minds in the industry, but sadly, most have been found to be pretty mediocre when it comes to thinking about resolutions for Injured Worker dilemmas and fights for life.
I want to find a group of decent, legit, respectable attorneys, mediators and structured settlement peeps in every state that actually work on behalf of Injured Workers, and who understand and have had success in Meditation and Structured Settlement in catastrophic and not quite-catastrophic cases.
We’ll create a referral network, based on goodwill for starters. Interested? If so, send a BRIEF email to WorkCompLinda@gmail.com to introduce yourself, your firm, YOUR BLOG, and your expertise in getting WorkComp cases to the negotiation tables and get the cases closed without further egregious harm to Injured Workers. If you have a questionnaire that you like filled out before you consider taking a botched up case, include that.
If you have colleagues in Canada, UK and Australia, we are seeking similar resources.
NO CHARGE AT THIS TIME, NO PROMISES, NO OBLIGATIONS…. JUST LOOKING FOR SOME DECENT PEOPLE TO HELP SOME DECENT INJURED WORKERS GETTING THE BIG-TIME RUN AROUND AND NO HELP IN SIGHT, AND MOST ARE UNABLE/ UNWILLING TO BLOG. STOCKHOLM SYNDROME OR LEARNED HELPLNESSNESS OR JUST PLAIN BURNED OUT, TOO SICK, TOO INJURED, INADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE AND KICKED TO THE CURB.
Results are the same.
Here’s my response to the inquiry that came the other day from a law firm on the East Coast.
Thank you for your kind words about MyWorkCompCoach.com and potential guest blogging.
In light of the alleged “Workers Compensation National Discussions” goodness knows that new and insightful thoughts from professionals are desperately needed.
National industry spokesmen have actually spent time and effort in May on disparaging diatribes about my blogs and me personally, and some of my injured worker friends. Fascinating that they would choose to displace aggression about the ProPublica /NPR expose INSULT TO INJURY – The Demolition of Workers Compensation and direct it on a WorkComp Survivor in rural America– with a brain injury, a computer and a blog, isn’t it?
Please kindly take a look at my other blogs, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains… reach to date over 35,000. It is not considered ‘politically correct’ by any stretch of the imagination, however, it may serve to help free some of the WORK COMP HOSTAGES in America, Canada, UK and Australia.
Before we discuss what you have in mind for a guest blog, please be sure you are fully aware of my other works on Workers Comp.
Your website is a wealth of information! Part of what needs to happen in America is to educate the unsuspecting public BEFORE A WORK INJURY TAKES PLACE. When a poor choice is made initially in retaining counsel, it can mean a death warrant for the injured worker. THIS MUST CHANGE.
In too many states, it seems that attorneys representing Injured Workers are merely serving the workers to the insurance carriers on a silver platter, tarnished as it may be.
We would welcome information on “Mediation and Structured Settlements” as a ways and means to resolution of ‘complicated’ cases that have been churning for years and years, and any other strategies you may offer to attorneys, insurance vendors and injured worker readers of My Work Comp Coach aimed at actions to achieve resolutions and freedom from WorkComp/restoration of civil rights and human rights to the injured and disabled communities.
So, I was thrilled to receive your email and after looking at my blogs, if you are still interested, please let’s reconnect and discuss your concept further.
Thank you for the good work on behalf of injured workers that you and your firm appear to be doing!

One thought on “Any Mediation and Structured Settlement Firms interested in providing a Guest Blog piece to reach more Injured Workers?”
PS AND FYI: If you have a WorkComp case, call a local Structured Settlement office today to discuss IF your case might qualify for a “structured settlement”
Search google for WORK COMP STRUCTURED SETTLEMENTS
Ask, “Can you help me settle my work comp case? I was injured on (date) and my (body parts) injured are future medical is anticipated as (name what medical you know you need). I am (age) and (ethnicity, if you choose to disclose). I am am not represented by an attorney”
Or something like that. No horror stories–everyone already knows exactly what you have been thru.
Prudential is another structured settlement group. There are more. We will get a list.
Make a few calls and find out your rights and options. If they say can’t help you, call another.
Get your story line down to 1 minute then let them ask questions. Keep good call notes.
Then call your adjuster, or beg your attorney to if you are “represented” and simply ask one question:
“What will it take to settle this case?”
If there is no answer ask a second question, “Will you consider mediation?”
If they laugh at you, you know how much blogging is ahead for you to do.
If they say “not at this time’ you know you have to crank up your blog and your database.
If they say “yes” then call the structured settlement peeps (or your attorney) back and say “They said yes. Can you recommend 3-5 good smart ethical mediators”
KEEP GOOD NOTES.
Ps DON’TWORRY ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS….most real doctors call work company medical reports “copy and pasted garbage reports”. Do assemble your thoughts and evidence of fraud and other misdeeds. Be able to articulate your anticipated future medical needs.
DO NOT SING “AIN’T IT AWFUL” at mediation.
The goal is Resolution not blame throwing. If you blogger sufficiently prior to mediation resolution could become a reality.
