Are you wondering, or even doubting if your workers’ comp claim will materialize to help you get back on your feet, medically and/or financially? If you are still waiting to hear from the insurance company regarding your claim, be aware the insurance company may be using a stall tactic to discourage you so you will just give up and go away. Though that may sound harsh, delay tactics remain an ugly reality that is often employed by insurance companies to diminish their losses – if you give up, they win with your money in their pockets!
Shockingly, that is only the tip of the spear of deception – employers, nurse case managers and investigators are often part of these tactics as well. Countless workers’ comp claims are diminished to a fraction of what they should be or are completely denied in the name of insurance company profits.
This is exactly why worker’s comp attorneys are in business – welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm! Our legal team remains busy every single day due to the maneuverings the insurance industry utilizes to pay claimants the least amount of workers’ comp benefits as possible. If you want the best results from your work-related injury claim, you need the best workers’ comp attorneys in Lancaster, PA! If what has been said here resonates with your situation, we want you to call our team, immediately, at 1-800-HURT NOW!
Our workers’ comp attorneys are here to listen. Be assured you pay no out-of-pocket fees! Your financial future could be at stake if ongoing medical bills or restrictions or disability becomes a reality due to your work-related injury. Prompt, decisive action on your part and on ours will allow your workers’ comp claim to quickly move forward in the right direction!
Though hesitation can be a good thing in some situations, it’s never a good thing during those times when a workers’ comp claim has been delayed, diminished, or denied without a legitimate reason. Below, you will find critical insight that could apply to your workers’ comp claim:
Report the Injury Immediately – Not reporting your injury within a certain period of time means your claim could be compromised or outright denied. Your report should be in writing and include specifics concerning which areas of the body were involved. Document everything and request, immediate, copies of any report your employer asks you to complete.
Request the Panel List – A panel list will include workers’ comp medical providers – from primary-care physicians to neurosurgical specialists to physical therapists to chiropractors. If you choose to visit a doctor who is not on the list, however, your company is not obligated to pay for treatments unless certain circumstances are present. Georgelis Law will be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding this.
Seek Prompt Medical Treatment – The longer the time period between your injury and the initial treatment, the more difficult it will be to have your injury deemed ‘work-related’. Documenting your injuries and symptoms is critical to support your right to ongoing benefits through the workers’ comp system.
The Best Workers’ Comp Attorneys Garner the Best Results!
Claimants are not in a position to monitor how employers or insurance companies handle their work-injury claims, but our workers’ comp attorneys are! We will leave no stone unturned as we keep a watchful eye on any questionable maneuverings that may jeopardize the money or other benefits you may be entitled to.
Our legal team will develop a strategic plan to recover your benefits and compensation from every possible source – the workers’ comp system, liability insurance, and/or third-party lawsuit against negligent parties. The best outcomes regarding work-injury claims are a direct result of the vast experience and skill provided by the best worker’s comp attorneys in Lancaster, PA!
What many claimants don’t know is that injuries due to repeating the same movements over a long period of time – rather than a single accident – can qualify for worker’s comp benefits. For example, construction workers using powerful vibrating hand tools, on a regular basis, are at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.
Aside from cumulative and repetitive motion trauma, other work-related injuries cover the spectrum – from neck, low-back and other spine injuries to loss of hearing/sight/ body part (such as fingers or toes). Additionally, injuries can be caused by slips, trips, and falls as well as motor vehicle accidents occurring while in the course and scope of employment.
If any wrong has been committed regarding your claim, you want the best workers’ comp attorneys Lancaster, PA has to offer. Our team will fight to make it right!

We’ll Uncover the Truth!
Never believe that your employer or the insurance company has your best interest in mind! Behind the scenes, they are working out every possible detail to mitigate their financial exposure to you. From the moment you make your claim, the clock is set to limit your workers’ compensation benefits and get you back to work as soon as possible, even if you are not ready to and your doctor agrees.
You can rest easy knowing we have your back!
Employers and insurance companies are fully aware that many claimants are not overly familiar with Pennsylvania laws concerning workers’ comp claims. Even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it doesn’t necessarily mean all is above board regarding your claim.
Nurse case managers, surveillance, investigators, and ‘independent’ medical examinations represent an array of avenues insurance companies will use to reduce, limit, or stop your workers’ comp benefits that are rightfully yours. When so many people are working against you, you need the best workers’ comp attorneys who will work for you!
Additionally, the Lancaster County workforce does not, automatically, have access to legal advice and guidance throughout the workers’ comp system. This is why you benefit from having our attorneys on your side. At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we will fight your Goliath!

When our workers’ comp attorneys handle claimants’ cases as soon as an injury occurs, we make sure all parties are playing by the rules!
