Thank you for visiting us – we are Georgelis Injury Law Firm – a firm comprised of experienced, nationally-recognized and award-winning workers’ comp lawyers serving Lancaster, PA. It is here where you or a loved one can see and experience the justice you deserve for a work-related injury. If you have a question or concern about whether your workers’ comp claim may be compromised in any way, please give us a call, any time or day of the week, at 1-800-HURT NOW.
Many people don’t realize that many workers’ comp claims are denied for illegitimate, or even unlawful, reasons. In other cases, the sad reality is that bringing a workers’ comp claim can jeopardize a person’s job or position with the employer. If you are feeling hesitant about calling a workers’ comp lawyer, be assured that you are in good hands with Georgelis Injury Law Firm. We are here to privately and confidentially answer your questions, address your concerns and provide you with the advice you need to make fully informed decisions. Then, if our active involvement or litigation is necessary, we can move ahead with contacting the insurance company or file a petition to make sure you receive the financial compensation and medical benefits to which you are entitled.
We want you to put your mind at ease knowing that our workers’ comp lawyers are ready to do what it makes to make sure you receive maximum compensation for your work-related injuries. Workers’ comp and accident cases are the sole emphasis of our law practice—it’s all that we do. We are laser-focused, no-nonsense, results-driven professionals, who seek out the wage loss, medical, specific loss and/or scarring and disfigurement benefits you deserve.
It is a sad fact that employers and insurance companies do what is in THEIR best interest – not yours. As a result of a job-related injury, your benefits, livelihood, and financial future could be severely compromised. Our workers’ comp lawyers in Lancaster, PA are all too familiar with workers’ comp cases where clients are surprised to discover their employers have followed only the bare, legal minimum requirements regarding compensation claims, which has left them at a severe disadvantage.
Employers and insurance companies are notorious for taking advantage of employees’ lack of familiarity and insight regarding workers’ comp claims. For starters, in order to protect and collect the monetary and medical benefits you deserve, you must satisfy various obligations and responsibilities.
The barrier to that, however, lies with employers and insurance companies who may not accurately reveal what some of those obligations are. In the end, many claimants are left out in the cold and receive a mere fraction of the covered medical care or wage loss benefits they otherwise would have received with proper legal representation.
These underhanded tactics are unacceptable! Our workers’ comp lawyers will not allow this to happen. It is important for you to know that there are time restrictions involved with workers’ comp claims, so you should contact our workers’ comp lawyers for a free case review and discussion about your claim.
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:
