Act 3 – explained

Big day for me today. Thank you to the Victorian Ombudsman and to all the injured workers who spoke up.

…Sadly too late – won’t bring our beautiful home and life back.

Act 3: Home lost to these vile insurer (and WorkSafe Victoria supported), unjust actions:

‘At interview, one former agent employee said that management placed pressure on staff to maintain decisions at conciliation and to not pay compensation past a certain date. This was to ensure the agent did not ‘breach’ their ‘targets’.

    Ohhh this sounds so familiar! I went to a conciliation hearing to try to get my payments reinstated, and I had an advocate with me who said they thought I had a strong case. I lost! The advocate was very surprised because she really thought I’d win. I hate dealing with my insurer, they will do all that they can to avoid paying anything. We needed a new mattress, my doctor asked for the insurance company to do an assessment. They sent out an OT. She said yes, I definitely needed a new mattress. But then when I got the report, she said they wouldn’t pay for the new mattress, as my husband also has a back injury and therefore we’d need one anyway! So if I didn’t sleep with my husband, or if I wasn’t married, they would’ve paid! I was so angry.
