Knowledge and Information
for Injured Workers, by Injured Workers



This site contains specific information for victims of workplace accidents
to fight their respective workers compensation boards in any Common law Country.
Some common law countries are: Britain, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and others.

This site has been created to help injured workers fight their respective WCB/WSIB/WorkSafe, through information!
It has also been setup to help support, grow, and start injured worker support & advocacy groups, through information!


There are several ways that people can fight their respective WCBs some of them are as follows: ​
Within the WCB system, Civil Court, Judicial Review, Criminal Court, and many more​​.
To find out how you can effectively fight your WCB/WSIB/WorkSafe
click here.


PLEASE TELL YOUR STORY, IT NEEDS TO BE TOLD!
Also on this website I decided to tell my story,
which can be found directly here.
I decided to tell my story in great detail in order to encoruage other injured workers to also tell their story.
It would be great, for all injured workers, if all injured workers told their story.
You can type out your story and send it to me by email at
fightwcb@gmail.com
I will then add your story to the many other stories I have on a webpage dedicated to injured worker stories.
Click here to see Injured Worker Stories.

If you have trouble typing, an alternative, like many other injured workers have already done,is for you to tell your story in a video and put it on YouTube,and send me the YouTube link, I will then add your video story to the many other stories of other injured workers I already have. Note I am pressently working on updating my entire website and I have not uploaded all the stories as of yet, but I will soon!

Fight or Plight of Injured Workers



In thinking of the plight of injured workers, or as I like to properly recognize
"victims of workplace accidents"
I am reminded of this very old but most important legal statement
regarding the rights of those who have been harmed/wronged by a failed system:

“For it is a settled and invariable principle in the laws of England,
that every right when withheld must have a remedy, and every injury its proper redress

Sir William Blackstone - 1765


I was just provided this quote from Orlando of IWC, he recalled it from a famous injured worker
out of Windsor Ontario, Rolly who saldy passed away.

"If you poison your boss a little each day it's called murder;
if your boss poisons you a little each day it's called Threshold Limit Value."
James P. Keogh, M.D.
