No.... I've backed off using UT... Have used for YEARS, 5 star ratings on all tests... Then got some "secret" rating that took me down to a 4.5 (although they publicly gave me a 5 star).... I will NOT have my name shamed lol.
That secret rater thingie seems to be a very recent thing. I think it's offensive.

I think the best thing to do is call the company involved and make sure they have documented the incident. Surely they have insurance, and can make a claim on it so you don't have to pay more money to chase reimbursement.
Also, don't accept any settlement until she is completely healed. She might need more treatment, physical therapy, etc.
I've never dealt with an injury situation, but I know when dealing with small businesses or individuals in disputes, the demand letter goes a long way. It shows that you're serious, and that your willing to contest. The other side becomes more willing to settle because they are caught flat footed. I also find it's best to present information to an attourney in a very orgnized fashion iwith dates/times and picutres already laid out. They rack up a lot of hours "researching" what you already could provide them. Some pictures, a timeline, and a couple of paragraphs should get you out of a lawyer's office for a few hundred dollars, which will be added to the demand letter.

So after talking more with my mom, apparently the guy stopped off and picked up someone else before taking her there.. grrrr... I had told him make sure you file an incident report and have her looked at, she had a bad accident 2 years ago. Nope, he got her a wheel chair and signed her in and left her in the corner... I am livid. The office girl for some reason thought when I called her I was saying she got hurt in our van.. No, BS. The fact I was yelling at her telling her to file an incident report and how the hell could they send their van that was so high up.. I mean WTH. We do have a huge problem with this office and the fact that everyone who works there first language is Spanish. Which is fine when I am there I can speak it pretty fluently but not my mom. And truth is I shouldnt have to. I will be calling the office manager on Monday.. I feel for her.

It's actually taking over another tab!
yeah, it normally clones itself on a bunch of the open tabs I have. once the test is done, I just refresh each of them until it goes away. its annoying but seems harmless.

So I am gonna hang out for about another 1/2 hour - waiting for my last User Testing payment which I will then transfer with my Intellizoom payment - I sorta worry that Paypal will start penalizing me if I make a lot of transfers in one day . . . mTurk didn't hop much for me today but I did get 3 User Testing studies and 2 $8 Intellizooms which made it all worthwhile. Maybe something will pop up here before I go.

Hi! Not that anyone missed me or noticed I've been MIA :wine: but wanted to drop by. I had teacher workdays all this week so I've barely been online. I did make $25 this week which I guess is better than $0. Anyway! Kids come back on Monday so we'll see if I can manage to teach by day and turk by night.

I feel your pain. I've resorted to transcribing broken english for Airbnb complaints.

I got an email from Neevo earlier in the week asking me if I didn't want to participate in their latest job. I replied I'd love to but as I hadn't yet been paid for the last two I did I was nervous about doing that. The gal replied she had started an investigation but I've not heard back. It's around $30.
