What is the inspiration for our satirical list of television shows?

Yesterday’s blog post was a satirical list of TV shows that we are interested in seeing on the fall schedule. Each suggestion was ridiculous, but all had some grain of truth.

We think satire is a great way to inform and educate. Here is our inspiration for the list and why truth is stranger than fiction.

Workers’ Comp in Paradise

Most people have never thought about what happens if they get hurt on-the-job. It is a shock when they find out the problems with the system. Disabled employees do not have time to fall in love but are just looking to survive and get back to work.

The Residual Wage-Earning Capacity Theory

Wage loss benefits are limited to just 80% of an employee’s average weekly wage. This amount can be reduced even further if the insurance company hires a vocational expert to say other jobs are available.

Surgery with the Stars

Employees hurt on-the-job cannot see their own doctor for 28 days. Our experience shows occupational clinics provide subpar care and return people to work sooner than appropriate.

How to Get Away with Killing Your Employee

The only guaranteed workers’ comp benefit when someone dies on-the-job is a $6,000 burial expense. Spouses must prove factual dependency to get any wage loss.

America’s Funniest Surveillance Videos

Insurance companies routinely hire private investigators to follow claimants and video tape their activities. We have seen claims adjusters make snap decisions about payment based solely upon a 5-minute video clip.

The Walking Disabled

Bad employers force people to work beyond medical restrictions and fire people who do not show up.

Settlement or No Settlement

Workers’ comp is a safety net for people hurt at work. Insurance companies stop payment for all kinds of dumb reasons. People are desperate when they cannot pay rent or put food on the table. Insurance companies exploit this fact and make low ball settlement offers.
