You might be facing a work-related injury or the death of a loved one due to a job-related accident. The last thing you want to do is to allow the employer and/or insurance company to take advantage of you.
When you sustain an injury on the job, your benefits, livelihood, and financial future are potentially implicated. Since employers typically do only the bare, legal minimum when handling workers’ comp claims, it is up to you to fend for yourself. That, however, is only the beginning. Insurance companies will do whatever they can to minimize, delay, or deny wage loss and medical benefits that are rightfully yours as part of your workers’ comp claim!
In order for claimants to collect the income loss and medical benefits they are owed, they must fulfill certain obligations and responsibilities under Pennsylvania law. So far so good. But there is a catch: employers and insurance companies may choose to inaccurately reveal what those specific obligations and responsibilities are. They also have deep pockets, allowing them to hire nurse case managers, private investigators, attorneys and other representatives dedicated to serving their interests, not yours. As a result, claimants often are left in a canoe without a paddle, receiving only a fraction of the covered medical care and monetary compensation they deserve.
Does this shock you? Rest assured that our workers’ comp attorneys who serve Lancaster, PA will not tolerate this type of underhanded behavior! The cornerstone of Georgelis Injury Law Firm is justice for the injured!
We want you to know, however, that time is of the essence. By waiting too long, your rights and access to compensation can become delayed, compromised or even lost.
Report the Injury Immediately
Not reporting the injury in a timely manner can lead to a delay or denial of your claim. Your report should be in writing and include specifics concerning how the injuries happened and which areas of the body were involved. Document everything, through witnesses, photographs, etc., and request copies of any report your employer asks you to complete. Taking a phone photo as you complete each page of any report is prudent.
Request the Panel List
A panel list will include workers’ compensation medical providers – from primary care physicians to neurosurgical specialists to physical therapists. Be aware that, if you choose to visit a doctor or provider who is not on the list, your company and the insurance company are not obligated to pay for the treatment. Georgelis Injury Law Firm will be happy to answer any questions you might have, regarding this, and give you valuable guidance and advice about how to avail yourself of the best medical treatment.
Seek Prompt Medical Treatment
The longer the gap between getting hurt on the job and the initial treatment you seek out, the more difficult it will be to have your injury deemed to be ‘work-related.’ Documenting the mechanism of injury, the body parts you injured and your symptoms is critical to support your right to current and future indemnity and medical benefits through Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation system.
There are any number of situations that could negatively impact your right or access to workers’ compensation benefits. For example, consider the following:
