Should I get ACDF or Cervical Disc Replacement Surgery?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Sep 23, 2020 | 0 Comments

During the course of our representation of many injured workers, we come across questions like this one, what type of cervical surgery will be helping one to recover in an opportune time and be able to go back to work in a relatively short time? Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a surgery to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the neck. Cervical disk replacement surgery involves removing a diseased cervical disk and replacing it with an artificial disk. Before this procedure was available, the affected disk was removed and the vertebrae above and below were fused together to prevent motion.

Do you have a legal right to settle your workers’ compensation case?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Aug 10, 2020 | 0 Comments

Do you have a legal right to settle your workers’ compensation case? No, but many insurers will push you into a corner, then say they want to discuss settlement with you. If you are ready to settle, you need to sit down with your lawyer (me) and devise a strategy. Unrepresented workers tend to leave money on the table when they negotiate with the claims adjuster

Why does Resurgens Orthopedics state on their referral form “Schedule MRI AT THE REQUEST OF THE PROVIDER?”

Posted by Thomas Brown | Aug 07, 2020 | 0 Comments

How frustrating. This generic referral then allows the insurance company to re-assert control of your medical treatment in your workers’ compensation claim. This is done across the board by all Resurgens doctors. It is done for that very purpose. The key concept in all job injury claims is “who controls your medical treatment?”

Treatment Delays: deliberate of accidental?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Aug 03, 2020 | 0 Comments

Has your medical treatment been unreasonably delayed? In your job injury claim many times the insurance adjuster or their lawyer either negligently or deliberately delay the treatment orders of the authorized doctor. Why does this happen so often these days? The insurance adjusters like to argue it is due to the COVID 19 Chinese Virus. Baloney. Many adjusters work from home and are connected through internet to the office main frame.

What means working under duress?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Jul 31, 2020 | 0 Comments

What is working under duress? No, it does not mean that your boss holds a gun to your head. It means having to perform your job, your household daily duties, shopping, and any activity with pain and difficulty after an automobile accident.

About 15 years ago, the US military began donating their old, obsolete military equipment to local law enforcement agencies.

It is the “in” thing to have armored trucks, tanks, all with SWAT teams at the ready, employ this lethal power on our streets. Look, I am not a liberal guy but I feel intimidated looking at an armored vehicle with military style dressed police officers pouring out of it to quell a potential disturbance.

Nursing Homes and the Corona Virus?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Jun 03, 2020 | 0 Comments

This blog is a bit off my usual writing subject matters but it is a hot topic among all of us with the Chinese Communist Wuhan virus still raging. Nursing homes were used by the Governor of New York to “store” or transfer the elderly. This act of stupidity caused the death count to soar in nursing homes in New York. Then to bar family members from seeing their elderly parents only added “insult to injury” and ultimately to greater deaths.

What is the supply chain we hear about with regard to China?

Posted by Thomas Brown | Jun 01, 2020 | 0 Comments

Larry Kudlow is the Chief economic advisor to the Trump Administration. Right after Memorial Day 2020, he made the following statement: “We welcome any American Companies in Hong Kong or China mainland, we will do what we can for full expensing and pay the cost of moving if they return their supply chains and their production to the United States.” A supply chain is a system of organization, people, activities, information and resources involved in supplying a product or service to the consumer. Take a forest for instance. Companies cut down the trees, transport them by big rigs to a lumber yard. At this location they are cut to various sizes. Then construction companies buy the finished product and transform the lumber into apartment complexes, home residences, store fronts, etc.

Should I drop the course I am taking to learn Mandarin-Chinese?

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 29, 2020 | 0 Comments

Prior to the Wuhan Corona virus rearing its ugly head around the world, an amazing number of US parents had enrolled their children in Mandarin language classes. Remember the 2008 Olympics put on by the Communist Chinese Party at the cost of $43 billion dollars? The propaganda value was amazingly effective. One of the main themes of the Olympics was “One World, One Dream.” Everyone thought this huge foreign power was going to become more westernized, more open, greener and less authoritarian. Well how do things look now, 12 years later? Certainly Communist China has not moved an inch, but the Western democracies have moved by leaps and bounds to open our doors to the Chinese.

Alabama is no longer a backwoods state

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 29, 2020 | 0 Comments

Neil Young (of Crosby, Stills & Nash fame) once wrote of Alabama: “Alabama, you’ve got the rest of the Union to help you along, what’s going wrong?” Well, Neil, the times have changed and Alabama is a different state indeed! There are many factors that have changed Alabama into a highly technical workforce with a 3.3% unemployment rate and 80,000 new jobs (according to the Bureau of Labor statistics at the end of 2019).

Wake up America-the Communist Chinese are taking over!

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 27, 2020 | 0 Comments

Have we, as a nation, finally gotten to the point where we now see that the Communist Party of China is our true enemy? Over the last 30 years, our leaders, our Presidents, from Clinton to Bush to Obama, have allowed and encouraged our manufacturing of every product to shut their doors in the USA and move to China for the manufacturing. Maybe, just maybe, the Chinese Wuhan virus has a silver lining. After having almost brought our country to its knees, we now seem to be waking up to bringing our manufacturing plants back home. I am pleased to state that this is what President Trump has campaigned and has pushed for vigorously since he was inaugurated in January of 2017.

The Covid-19 Times

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 27, 2020 | 0 Comments

In these Covid-19 times, employers seem to be looking for ways to cut their payroll. That means terminating employees, whether a long time worker or not. While in Georgia, an employee may be terminated for a right reason, a wrong reason or no reason at all, if the employee is working while under disability related to a job injury, termination of employment does not terminate entitlement to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

Are you Considered an "Essential Worker"?

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 25, 2020 | 0 Comments

It really bugs me when I hear those words “essential worker”. So if I am not considered to be an essential worker I must sit at home, on the sidelines so to speak, while others go to work, earn a paycheck and put food on their tables.

Does Business Manufacturing need immunity to re-open?

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 18, 2020 | 0 Comments

Now that the states are authorizing the re-opening of businesses to different degrees, businesses, large and small, want immunity from their workers if the business fails to provide a safe workplace. There are many businesses that upon re-opening, will clean and disinfect and provide for their workers a safe, Covid-19 free environment. They will be diligent.

Can we end China’s dominance over our supply of critical medicine?

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 13, 2020 | 0 Comments

Senator Tom Cotton, US Senator of Kansas, has introduced legislation in the US Senate to return pharmaceutical manufacturing to the USA. Before the Corona Virus crisis, no one paid much attention to our nation’s increasing dependency on the Communist Chinese for our medicine supply. China was and still is producing over 40% of the world’s supply of all the ingredients used to make our antibiotics. And, 97% of the US market for antibiotics are produced in China. Winston Churchill gave a speech in 1934, 5 years before the Nazi armies invaded Poland and Austria in World War II, stating:
