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

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.

“It’s the proverbial can of worms and complete satisfaction is unattainable, at least in the current configuration of workers’ compensation.” – David DePaolo:      Read the article here:  Can O’Worms

YEP. THANKS DAVID DePAOLO! TIME FOR CHANGE!

 

PS:  #SOS

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!

Take care of yourself and your family, and tell your story your friends and neighbors because

Remember Remember:  Charles Romano, RIP

 

The Antithesis of Robin Hood

“The unfortunate story of Charles Romano acutely demonstrates the perversity of this arrangement.”

“Romano, if you recall, sustained an industrial injury and during the course of treatment incurred the infectious methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus that shut down his lungs and kidneys and paralyzed him below the shoulders.”

“The adjuster for third party administrator, Sedgwick Claims Services, overrode physician requests and a judge’s order to provide appropriate medical care, and Romano died as a result.”

“That the state also profits is the height of hypocrisy.”

From an Injured Worker’s Perspective – Deploy Mediation and Structured Settlement Teams to reach resolutions

“…In the meantime, I welcome your thoughts about what the SI might focus on and who might best serve as “visiting fellows” to help fullfill our plan and agenda as they evolve. Please feel free to share here….”    Chris Mandel, RF, CPCU, ARM-E  Director at the Sedgwick Institute

 

SI  GROUP RULES  4 26 2016

From an Injured Worker’s Perspective – Deploy Mediation and Structured Settlement Teams to reach resolutions

Thank you for creating this group, [Sedgwick Institute – on LinkedIn ] and for being open to participation by Injured Workers who have dodged some bullets in the system, and got out alive.

I blog, and my ‘rebranding’ blog is MyWorkCompCoach.com and my ‘screaming to the high heavens’ blog is AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com/list-of-posts/

It can be used as a study piece that this community of thought leaders may find some new perspectives and identification of issues requiring solutions and resolutions.

Professional friends, upon learning of my workplace injuries, advised ‘get out of work comp by any means necessary, it will kill you!’ Later, some of the same people, and new professionals, said they had never seen anyone fight so hard for life and exit from the system. Believe it or not, a warm and somewhat fuzzy best wishes letter even arrived from the defense.

I am currently collecting stories from other Injured Workers in hopes to present issues for the “National Discussions” that appear to be in progress.

Many of us are extremely grateful for the stellar reporting of the investigative reporters that provided America with the information in The Demolition of Workers Compensation, that may serve to save more lives. Many of us hope for an encore. I personally hope that investigative reporters will be invited into this group, and encouraged to participate and demolish the existing systems, and replace them with ones that reflect values of life, liberty, and justice for all.

I seem to ‘scare’ some people with some of my out-of-the-box ideas, but over the course of my career, prior to the workplace injury, I had also supported some very powerful captains of industry. Thinking small is not second nature to me.

I will watch and read, and practice some restraint in this group, seeing it as a huge opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of not only Injured Workers, but in the lives of providers & workers on the ‘short-end-of-the-work-comp-stick.’

  • Linda Ayres

    Linda AyresI welcome public or private discussions, and I can be easily reached at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

    If you will be dividing into committees, I am a natural networker. Please let me know how I may best be of some support in identifying more of the real issues, and facilitating dialogue with injured workers in America, Canada, Australia, UK and beyond.

    It could be beneficial to set up a ways and means for WorkComp workers to chat, in a non-adversarial manner, with injured workers, not unlike programs for incarcerated members of society to have pen-pals with the ‘free world.’

    We all know some of the same people, and really, WorkComp is everybody’s business.

    Thank you, Jonathan Mast! For the record, and for this group, attached is the link to your announcement of the group, and my very public request to join!

    Here is a survey that Injured Workers have been responding to via my blog: https://myworkcompcoach.com/whats-your-workcomp-story/

    Talk soon! Thank you again for this opportunity to meet and discuss.

    I may include a blog soon to invite others to join. My reach may be somewhat different than many of yours, and there may also be overlap.

    In any event, We Are The Media Now. Let’s make it count.Show less


     .
    EVERYBODY HAS A WORKCOMP STORY…. whether you are an injured worker, a doctor, lawyer, government worker, office staff, PA, nurse, or someone with a good job, AT RISK of a workplace injury.

.

Let’s get the issues on the virtual conference tables.  If it’s mean to be, it will happen in 2016.   Proceed, without fear or caution.
 .
  • What’s YOUR WorkComp Story?   Tell it here, and let’s roll.  The ‘questionnaire’ may evolve,  if the experts are truly willing to look at the issues.  Give it your best shot.
KEEP POSTING WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW
WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW #DodgeRads #OccupyVirtually
  • Note, I have experienced vicious, unfounded attacks in the past, and just so you know, we do not….forget.  Don’t do it again, thank you.
  • Help existing WorkComp Victims find freedom and health, and warn the others who have not yet experienced it.  There is some hope, albeit tiny, that the system will change.  Help Now.
  • Here’s how it was handled the last time. If happens again, it won’t be so nice. Promise. Insurance Industry Trolls or WorkComp Opiate War Casualties?ninja

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW  RED DOT

 

If you’re an Injured Worker —  use this opportunity wisely, for the greatest good for the greatest numbers of Injured Workers.  It might even help you get your case moving toward mediation and resolution.

It is my hope and prayer for each of you to find a way out of the system — it’s the only way you will survive.  There is life after the horrors of work comp.  Believe that!

HOLD ON AND LET GO!  YOU’RE NOT ALONE.  

IT WON’T BE EASY.  KEEP MOVING FORWARD!

#Blog4Freedom, Life, Liberty and Justice for All!

wc time for change

 

FURTHER ACTION:   Request to Join the Sedgwick Institute – LinkedIn Group… remember….no hitting, kicking, spitting, name calling or street talk.   These people have jobs!  If you’re a professional, join and share — you do not have the right to remain silent.

Remember, most WorkComp groups don’t want to know about Injured Workers as real people, let alone hear horror stories.  It makes them feel, and they can’t proceed, if they start to have feelings that Injured Workers are humans, being subjected to some of the most unimaginable events for the profits of the few.

One Veteran suggested, “Tell them to conduct themselves as if they are Prisoners of War. They will know what to do, and how to survive, and how escape.”

Let’s hope for a PEACE TREATY, restitution and reconciliations along with rehabilitations.

While many hope for only retribution for the offenders, let that go for now.

It’s  dangerous out there…. SURVIVE FIRST, GET OUT OF THE SYSTEM, RECOVER, THEN COME BACK AND FIGHT THAT GOOD FIGHT, PERHAPS WITH SOME ALLIES.

Maybe we will collectively witness rehabilitations and transformations.

You’ve done your time — now seek your freedom, and learn what you can to build a new life.

The Age of Information can set you free. It’s a Freedom Train….  if you case is too complex, find some help to tell the story as succinctly as possible.   You have 30 seconds to grab the attention of influencers.

Remember, everybody already knows what you have endured, and all your ‘evidence’ and medical records don’t mean much at all.

BE OPEN TO SETTLEMENT.  HAVE AN OPEN HEART, OPEN MIND, EMPTY BRIEFCASE, AND IF YOU HAVE TO DITCH YOUR ATTORNEY, DO IT, AND FIGHT FOR YOUR OWN LIFE.  THEY GET PAID ANYWAY.

FOCUS ON BEST OUTCOMES….MAKE IT A WISH LIST, PUT YOUR HEALTH AND FREEDOM FIRST.   “BELIEVE IT, AND IT IS.”
