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!

Any Mediation and Structured Settlement Firms interested in providing a Guest Blog piece to reach more Injured Workers?

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.
WE ALL HAVE A STORY TO TELL
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!
 
Kind regards,
 
Linda Ayres

Injured Workers’ Stories Are The Same – 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.

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.”

WorkComp and Cans of Worms – For the National Discussions Agenda – Organize the Warblers!

GOT WORMS?

Worm eating Warbler - Audubon Field Guide

“…legal representation can make a difference between a lifetime of impoverished living and return to normal lifestyle…..”   DePaolo’s World – Thoughts and impressions on Workers’ compensation and Life:  Can O’Worms

YEP. The legislated ability of non-performing attorneys to have liens on a case that hinders ability for competent replacement when initial attorney choices have been poorly made by ill-informed Injured Workers is a huge ethical problem.

That harms not only the injured workers, but taxpayers and the legal community.

The lack of knowledge of body parts, return to work strategies, obtaining medical care and competent providers, as well as lack of expertise in mediation and structured settlements is another gap in attorney performance that harms many.

It’s good for the defense side, though. They bank on it, don’t they? :/ Isn’t that part of what keeps cases churning for years and years and years, with a little periodic hand-wringing by various ‘stakeholders’ about ain’t it awful for the poor injured, unemployed, disabled-by-comp workers? : (

When even the Information and Assistance Officers, (officers of the Court?) as in California, insist that WorkComp is an “adversarial system” that is yet another problem identified requiring complete transformation; barring transformation, complete and total demolition is required.

If there is no intention or will to provide “immediate, reasonable and appropriate medical care”…. why not just call it an extermination program, based on outcomes?

WorkComp Exterminations —– there’s little compensation for the Injured Workers, and too many PAY WITH THEIR LIVES after long, torturous ordeals. Most Injured Workers have the same story—-just different names and different body parts. Quite similar outcomes. Survey the real doctors. Ask the Super Lawyers.

When attorneys play a numbers game with the lives of injured workers, accept denials of medical care and benefits for years, in hopes the attorneys may ‘hit a jackpot’ on another case it seems to be not only ethical violations, but breach of fiduciary responsibilities of applicant attorneys, evidenced by the years and years (50 or 60 in CA?) of dismal outcomes for the injured workers and other taxpayers.

Shawback April 29, 2016 at 7:54 PM   

My husband has finally gotten in front of a judge for a settlement hearing after almost 10 years. We often think our attorney is on the other side. We weren’t told we could have a witness other than me & when we asked if our friend of 40 years could testify he said “no, we don’t want it to sound rehearsed “.
Then he requested that I write a list of questions that he should ask me when I testify.
Any advice?

 Comment on a Comment on The Original Post:

When you are represented, you are somewhat at the mercy of the party retained to represent you.

Ten years?!!! That’s not uncommon. If your attorney is asking you to do his/her job, that is very much a red flag. Same attorney for the entire 10 years? What outcome is this attorney preparing you for?

Best to have that conversation and understanding prior to getting in front of the judge, IMHO.

It might be worth a second opinion and A willingness to change counsel if you find a more responsive and proactive and prepared representative.

An alternative is to consider mediation and a structured settlement discussion PRIOR to the hearing. If your current Counsel’s negotiating skills are lacking, a mediator can possibly bridge that gap. Search LinkedIn for MEDIATORS and find ones with WorkComp expertise.

What State is the case in? How much time before the hearing?

There is a group called National Association of Injured and Disabled Workers with a wealth of other injured Workers willing to share experience strength hope and resources. Check them out!

Browse through all of David DePaolo’s blogs for an excellent overview of the national WorkComp systems. Search his blogs for articles on settlements.

Never give up. Help your husband protect himself and your family. The system does not protect and it sounds questionable that your current Counsel may be of much help. DO Your HOMEWORK. BE PREPARED for more of the same that you have already experienced in the past 10 years. Sorry.

Know that you are not alone and that many best wishes are coming your way from Injured Workers around the nation who know your pain! Let’s see who else weighs in with a kind word, hope, strategy or resources.

BLOG ABOUT IT! You can start a Blog with the question you posted and watch your network build! Settlement is not “the end” so continue to reach out for survival tips!
