I just launched my new book, The Dark Side of Injury. Navigating the worker’s compensation system requires more than a map. You need a step-by-step guide with resources for worker's comp to see you through. The Dark Side of Injury offers resources to help you navigate through the system.
Too many times, news is about people who are trying to “beat the system”. Get rich schemes make news. What doesn’t make the news is the hardship that many people endure due to a work-related injury. For most, it’s a matter of finding effective treatment and staying financially afloat.
When personal injury strikes at work, it can change your life forever. Medical treatment alone can financially wipe you out! I personally experienced the worker’s compensation system, and that’s where my story begins.
I had to navigate this system when my husband injured his back at work. After his injury, our family learned many lessons about the American legal and worker’s compensation systems. As a medical provider myself, I thought I knew the nuances of these systems. Nothing could be further from the truth! You need resources for worker's comp.
Initially, I started writing my book, The Dark Side of Injury, because I was angry and hurt. Many fraudulent acts deserved to be exposed. Reliving my experiences through writing the book has been healing. Now, my objective is to provide resources for worker's comp and tools to help others (business owners, families and individuals) who must deal with these systems.
The book includes my personal experiences, checklists, how-to guides and other resources for worker's comp. Knowing what to do and where to go is a tremendous help as you navigate the systems of work-related injuries, malpractice and the associated legal world.
If you or someone you know is fighting an uphill worker’s compensation or legal battle, The Dark Side of Injury book will answer many of your questions. Information on how to find a competent doctor and attorney is vital to your health and financial stability. Plus, tips on navigating the legal and worker’s compensation system offer new insight into those murky areas.
As someone who has walked miles in your shoes, I understand your frustration and despair. My wish is that you let my experience, told in The Dark Side of Injury, help you and your loved ones through this difficult time. ~Debra Muth, ND, WHNP, APNP, BAAHP
