There are many deadly jobs in the country, but someone must do it. And compensation must be fitting to the task at hand. "Depraved Indifference: The Workers' Compensation System" is a scholarly look at the American Workers' compensation laws and how they are unjust for today's world filled with high risk jobs and deadly chemicals that many must work with almost daily. With a suggested reform model presented, Woeppel explains the problem and also lays out a solution, giving "Depraved Indifference" a critical recommendation.

Ms. Woeppel, who herself suffered in the Workers' Compensation system, is eloquent in her condemnation of the Workers' Compensation system that is much more about enriching the insurance companies and protecting employers from responsibility for the workers killed and maimed in their businesses. Taking care of the injured workers and their families takes a back seat. Well researched and thorough, yet very readable. Ms. Woeppel has done a great service with this book.

I have represented injured workers for over two decades and this book has the ring of truth in it. "Depraved Indifference" describes the American injured workers' experience better than anything else I have read.

Almost every chapter parallels my own dealings with an unscrupulous employer and their quack doctor who nearly put me in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. It is nearly five years since my accident, and my health problems still plague me every day. Thank you Patrice for writing this book. Yes -- America's health care system is broken! How did the greatest country in the world devolve into one where employers can willfully and with impunity cripple their employees for life and then withhold proper medical care.
