The following submitted “Guest Post” highlights that not only workcover and their independent medical doctors ‘bully’, intimidate and harass injured workers, but that also the TAC operates in a very similar way.

TAC IME bullies

By ‘Dunk’

My wife was bullied by TAC and their Independent Medical Examination Doctors — IME’s — one brought up something that had happened to her (sexual assault) 10years before the car accident, which is a pretty low act. the IME bullied her into answering his questions as he stated the TAC had asked him to ask these questions.

My wife terminated the examination, and we reported him to TAC and the medical board – which we all know the outcome of this – so we have now gone to the paper [media] with her story being just before the election in Victoria.

We will hearing from both labor and liberal parties as they will both want to look as though they are helping my wife

Please stand up to corrupt IMEs who intimidate and bully you! There are laws against bullies; the more complaints the media get about this the better the chance we have of making it a fairer system for all claimants.

  1. I had to go to a TAC psychiatrist, he asked all sorts of questions, and touched on some long past unpleasant memories, but I think it actually showed that I am generally well adjusted and able to tackle most issues without drama… Unlike my present state of mind…. That is I have been subject to psychological abuse in my marriage, I got out when he physically hurt one of our children, the last straw. I have been in a car accident before and coped quite well, back at work within weeks and pretty much pain free after a few months, its what I thought was going to happen after this last one… My parents moved us from the UK to here in the 70’s, and the more recent loss of both parents. Even through that I have functioned and held down a job, raised 4 kids and have a mortgage, I even managed to buy an investment property and renovated it with teenage kids, I have had other relationships, (but do better without the addition of a grown child (smirking on that one :)) ) I am/was independent, self sufficient and had plans for my future… While I fight to regain some control over my life, life isn’t the same, my goals and dreams are gone, my independence is dwindling and I am no longer self sufficient.

    What everyone has to keep in mind is that everyone has events throughout their lives, for the most part we adjust and adapt, its when we are faced with our toughest challenges and put to the test by Workcover and TAC that not only is our patience is tested but also our mental well being. And that’s besides coping with whatever else ails us whether it be physical &/or mental injury….

    • Dear Woowoo,i think you should be so proud of yourself for what you have been through and how well you have done,give yourself a big pat on the back.These IME shrinks I have been to 4 and they ask so personal questions I was asked how I had sex and how many times,i just refused to answer on the grounds of being of a personal nature and I didn’t see the relevance to my accident and or injury and I said it in a very calm and collected manner.He eye balled me so I did the same back thinking I can do this all day mate I have no where else to be.I gave him no reaction which he was waiting for.His report funny enough was in my favour.

    • @Suzanne, there is no way to retrieve an un-posted (unpublished) comment. What is strange is that you received a message allegedly stating ‘wrong email’. You can use any email address possible, even a fake one, as long as it has an ‘@whatever.com’ in it. So for example fake@fake.com works. Hope this helps.
