People who have a complain against WV worker comp. Do you think it would be possible to get a petition sign by all and get the FBI or someone in Federal government to look into the miss handle of worker comp. in WV. By the judges and lawyers

Yours truly

Charles - now that Brickstreet took over WC, you probably have no chance. Most of the older workers in this city/state and workers at the Fund are retired or moved on and younger folks just take for granted that Brickstreet is the way it's always been.

It boiled down to this: Manchin/legislature passed the law privatizing WC first month or so in office. Therefore it had been planned and set up for quite some time. The executives slowly moved into places of power and conned the employees into thinking "nobody would lose their jobs/benefits and they'd still be state employees" - Most attorney's in the state ACTUALLY represent employers now (and Brickstreet) instead of the injured worker. So it's stacked against a worker who has a true injury and limit to the job force.

Good luck - All insurance companies try to pay the least out as possible - the have tables set up for each client to show if they are a loss or gain for them and will drop them if they go in the red. Therefore there are no ethics with most employers to stand by their workers for fear of having to find other insurance which may be higher.

The only hope an injured worker has that can't perform substantial gainful employment (which would be about $2,000 a month now for single and maybe $3,500 a month for family) could qualify for Disabled SS if they are physcially unable to work full time hours - best to work on that instead of going after Brickstreet...

Good luck
