To make the work comp reform more effctive, a legal action should be taken aginst doctors, applicant attornies and judges who are abusing their responsibilitis.For sure, there are many doctors, attornies, and judges who may not be happy in the reform becuause they are making a lot of money without providing the necessary treatment and compensation for the injured employee. Though there is a proposal to creat a standard guidlines to determines the level of employee's temporary and/or permanent injury, legal action proposals shold be also done at the same time to control those potential unresponsible evaluators. There is a high chance of creating a relationship among independent evaluators, treating doctors, attornies informally so that they will resume their butcher practice. Please propose to lay down a system under worker comp managment to penalize doctors, lawyers, and judges whenever they do malpractice and try to creat another crises in our state.

"A INJURED EMPLOYEE SHOULD GET THE RIGHT TREATMENT AND COMPENSATION!!"

AN ADVOCATE FOR THE INJURED EMPLOYEE

al blake

I'm currently employeed with a New York base company with my home office in San Diego. As a Risk Manager of a 5.4 billion dollar organization my efforts in workers' compensation takes me across the country traveling and working in many states. I have seen good programs and bad. All have unique forums and approaches to workers' compensation reform. I have reviewed parts of Governor Schwarzenegger's proposed plan and I see the need for fine tuning the plan to work with current state statues, labor and employer's keeping in mind the need to treat the injured employee.
