W elcome to our blog! Aworkcovervictimsdiary (AWCVD) is a grassroots not-for-profit organisation of WorkCover victims who have been injured at work and who have struggled with the current worker’s compensation system in Australia.
First of all, we’re not going to misrepresent ourselves – that is aworkcovervictimsdiary- and tell you that we have special influence(s) with state legislators and even politicians. We don’t, and neither do some of the others, or we would already have meaningful, fairer Workcover legislation signed into law to really help injured workers survive this ordeal known as WorkCover, work-over or workers compensation.
Our primary goal is to help, assist, educate, inform and empower injured workers to better understand how to navigate through an over-complicated and convoluted WorkCover system and not become victims of overzealous WorkCover insurances and their investors (stakeholders). One way we accomplish this is through aworkcovervictimsdiary.com.au, a site that is more than just a ‘glorified’ blog, which provides very important information resources for Australian injured workers!
We are more of an educational site. We HELP injured workers! We are advocates for the people injured and/or made ill at work. We go to bat for those falsely accused of WorkCover fraud by insurance carriers – by any means possible!
We also aim to put an end to the rampant fraud and corruption perpetrated upon Australia’s injured workers by the insurance industry and their legislative friends. To help, support and assist those who are genuinely serious about bringing back some legitimacy to Australia’s Workers’ Compensation systems, a system that now is controlled by a corrupt and out-of-control insurance industry, that has our legislators pimping and pandering influence in exchange for their political contributions.
We aim to stop the escalation of WorkCover insurer (and employer) fraud. This ‘White Collar’ fraud is a primary reason that our Workers’ Compensation systems are so dysfunctional, with insurance carriers hiding behind the fact that Australian law has not developed to the stage that there should be recognition of a new tort which imposes a duty of good faith on an insurer operating within a statutory workers compensation regime….to shield them from legal liability for their criminal acts, post-injury!
We are in the 21st century, and injured workers need to use 21st-century technology and tactics to get their voice heard by those who can help make the necessary changes.
We are NOT a political organisation. Political organisations are simply about money and power, plain and simple. They want your money and then they have the power, not you! If you’re tired of playing “footsie” with politicians, then you’re the person we’re looking for. Injured workers need help and they need it now, not in 2 years!
Help us help injured workers all over Australia, and bring some fairness and equity back to the WorkCover system.
