Bio: Hello fellow co-workers, My screen name is Bugmann and I have been and continue to be an advocate for the injured worker, and specialize in WC rules/laws of the "Garden State" New Jersey where I was employed. I was nieve in believing that employers/carriers/and even Doctors will do the right thing when an injured worker is presented. Sadly this is not always the case, and was not for me. My employer did everything under the sun to avoid liability, including a demonstration of how much influence they have with their treating WC DR??

Since my injury, I have learned so much about the politics of NJWC it gets me sick at times just to think about it. I was treated like a 3rd world refugee!!! Sadly there is not much that can be done, as it will take an act from GOD to get change there.

Wanting to know how my employer's actions as well as the employer selected Doctor's action were permitted under NJWC I decided to study active case law in NJ, and began studying NJWC rules and laws. Then became an active advocate on other major work comp forums working with other injured workers in helping them avoid commonly made mistakes . This is most important when the injured worker has become totally disabled from their work injury, as a total disability determination from the SSA can be helpful and is very difficult to win, especially when the injury is subjective, as with disability, due to pain.

I just wanted to introduce myself, for those who have not heard of me as of yet. As I wrote I specialize in NJWC and obtaining determinations from the SSA for NJWC injuries, as in total disability they go hand in hand, even though they are 2 separate actions.
In any event, I am sure my experiences and expertise, in work comp,will benefit many. I will be more than capable of explaining the system to the injured worker in lay terms that all can understand and once the situation is explained, then I will show how the current rules can effect your "specific" injury or situation, thus giving you the power and information NEEDED to work in concert with your lawyer, or carrier when injury is not serious. Speaking of lawyers I also have guidelines one should use when hiring a lawyer.

I look forward to working with all of you.
