Higher Work Comp Claims Costs for Older Workers

Before this site goes dark, here is a post I could not ignore from my friend, Maria Todd.

Those of you in work comp who sneered at my idea because I did not have any “credibility”, I dare you to challenge Maria. She has more experience in these matters than many of you put together, and a PhD to boot.

And if you find my comments disturbing, too bad! I’ve had to put up with your lousy treatment of me for four years.

        Well, I’m sorry to hear that. There isn’t any money reward for helping the injured worker. But just remember, you gave injured workers a voice for awhile. No money in it but a noble thing to do where they don’t have too many places to have a voice that reaches the public. We lost De Paulo who was becoming very vocal for us. Don’t forget us. We won’t forget you! Thank you and God bless you! Dina J.Padilla

    I wish you the best of luck. It is very hard for those of us willing to work hard to do meaningful work while thinking outside the box.
    Often it is all talk by those who claim to be willing to lift each other up. Then there are the naysayers who are often just sad they do not have the courage to imagine.
    I could not be of assistance to you because I realized there was no place for me in Medical Travel. I enjoyed your blog and followed your journey silently cheering you on. I hope you find much happiness in your new position.
    Stay in touch.
