Can You Sue the Driver if You Were Injured as a Passenger in a Car Accident?

A car accident claim is confusing enough as a driver. If you suffered injuries while riding as a passenger in an auto accident, the question of liability may be even more difficult to answer. You know you were not responsible for causing the accident, but you may still have to work to prove your right to compensation. Most passengers will file third-party liability claims against one or more parties in pursuit of compensation for their car acc... Read More

Zurich Services Corporation continues to put profit over people, denies an adaptive physical education program for a paraplegic

by Keith P. More

Zurich Services Corporation has hit an all-time low in my opinion.  Just when you thought the work comp system could not get worse Zurich is utilizing Dr. Sankar Pemmaraju from Colleyvile, Texas to deny an adaptive physical exercise program for a paraplegic.  The treating doctor of over 4 years, Dr. Ann Vasile felt after a bout with skin breakdown the young injured worker needed a therapy program that was adaptive to him.  She made the request in a Request for Authorization and Zurich sent the request to Dr. Pemmaraju.  A quick glance at Dr. Sankar Pemmaraju’s patient reviews tells the world everything you need to know. On Vitals.com one reviewer stated, “I feel his is a joke. I believe he is bought and paid for by workers comp insurance companies.” Another patient review indicated the, “Doctor is very misleading and lied to me multiple times.” Now, why in an accepted case that Zurich knows is a catastrophic injury would they use a doctor like Dr. Pemmaraju?

The answer is simple, profit over people. The less treatment authorized the greater the profit.  In this case, Dr. Pemmaraju stated, “there is no documentation detailing why claimant could not address increasing endurance, strength, and range of motion with a home exercise program.” Well doctor if he had a home gym with specialized equipment for those suffering from spinal cord injuries I guess he could but until he builds a gym onto his home or converts his son’s bedroom into a gym he needs this adaptive program at a specialized facility.   At what point is someone going to stand up for those less fortunate and at no fault of their own and be as outraged as me.  Join me in telling Zurich this is not okay. Write to Zurich’s National Medical Director Dr. Joseph Semkiu and express your concerns.
