Hey, #LaborDay is coming up! Remember Remember the 5th of September! If you don’t have a WorkComp story, count your blessings. WorkComp can strike without warning. Did you apply for the #ProPublica Engagement Reporter gig? GOOGLE IT! ;D
“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.
Let’s write some new chapters! Watch the TedMed Talks from the DO NO HARM crowd at IdealMedicalCare.org for more insights.
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW; just do it! Even if you are not selected, your voice will be heard!
Coming up real soon here…. VIRTUAL TOUR OF FACEBOOK INJURED WORKER GHETTOS AND KAMPS…. Compare the conditions of WorkCompsters vs impoverished and desperately needing medical care Injured Workers as reported here:
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!
