Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2005
Almost Broken is the first documentary that has taken a website and made it into a film. A film so explosive to California’s workers compensation system, that in February, within a few hours of the first public showing,the president of the largest state owned insurance agency, State Compensation Insurance Fund, resigned after being questioned by reporters.
State Fund is now the center of a hotly contested controversy concerning the effectiveness of what seems to be the only purported success story claimed by Governor Schwarzenegger, that of workers compensation reform.
Governor Schwarzenegger promised his employer-based supporters to lower work comp premiums. Insurance companies raised work comp premiums significantly in California to recover losses of investments in the stock market. Rather than lower premiums, insurance companies, like State Compensation Insurance Fund (SCIF) have balanced so-called “savings” on the backs of injured workers.
Will the movie, Almost Broken, and the website http://www.mystatefundstory.com, lead to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger resigning as governor of California? The website itself is so controversial that SCIF wanted it blocked from view by employees. Will Governor Schwarzenegger do the right thing and go after State Fund and other insurance carriers that have committed fraud against injured workers?
State Fund and other carriers remain untouchable by any governmental or legal agency if they commit fraud, as you will learn in Almost Broken. The political reality is as follows, Governor Schwarzenegger and top state officials do not care about you or your family’s rights if you suffer a serious injury at work.
