With two damning reports by the Victorian Ombudsman, WorkSafe Victoria and their greedy Insurer mates still find a way to avoid liability for their crimes – yes, crimes! I'm owed at least a few years of my wages while fighting the system – and the rest! Having to sell my home and use it as equity to start a new life due to the lack of support and unethical actions by WorkSafe and thei Insurers. The Victorian Government also escapes liability by allowing WorkSafe and their insurers to act unethically and by assigning an organisation to pretty much legislate itself. I was truly ecstatic to read this article and can imagine the relief of NSW injured workers to finally be able to move past the devastating treatment, trauma and hardship behind them... hopefully! This type of unjust treatment leaves a lot more damage than the injuries we endure at work. Unacknowledged as if we were a third world country. Shameful of Australia... except for NSW!

Life, Stitched Back Up Again

Everything that chronic pain had undone in the first nine years of this 14-year nightmare, Theo and I have managed to finally mend. Stitch by stitch, we made a new house, founded a new livelihood, purchased a more comfy car, made new friends, welcomed a different breed of fur child and all of this in a new (unfamiliar) town. It's a rebirth! All of this, driven by the hunt for pain management after a ball pop, drop and a bang. Or was it...?

It’s Official! It’s ok to Treat Injured Workers Immorally and Unethically

No one within the system has fear of prosecution - not even a fear of a single penalty! No one within the system has been or will be called to explain their actions and held to account. This makes my blood boil! I haven't even heard the support will be returned to workers who were delivered unfair decisions and had to walk away from their support. But I want my money back! Where are my years of wages after having a decision overturned unfairly at the Accident Compensation Conciliation Service (ACCS) by the Agent? And the rest...?

If you dress well - this system assumes you couldn't possibly have a health issue. If you speak well, there's no way you have suffered trauma. If you manage to stay alive through your darkest moments, they assume you can forfeit your compensation. When you are honest and remain transparent, they only abuse your information.
