We appreciate the time you took searching out the best workers’ compensation attorney in Lancaster, and we are so glad you’ve found Georgelis Injury Law Firm!  We employ the most effective investigative and negotiating strategies which help our Lancaster clients receive the maximum compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and more!

Perhaps you sustained injuries from slipping in a hallway at work.  Maybe you were exposed to toxic chemicals at your employer’s construction site.  Or, you may have been attacked by a dog at your boss’s doggy-daycare facility.  The good news is, you are protected by workers’ compensation laws in Pennsylvania.

There is a caveat, however:  once insurance companies become involved with workers’ compensation claims, your benefits could be drastically compromised.  The reason is simple:  some insurance companies want to hold onto their financial assets, even if it means keeping money that should go to injured workers.

This mindset of greed results in insurance giants delaying or denying claims, unethically, and sometimes, unlawfully.  If you suspect foul play of any kind, contact our workers-compensation attorney team, right away!

Our workers’ compensation attorneys are among the best in the industry, and we will not allow our Lancaster clients to be scammed by dishonorable insurance company tactics.  Please call our team immediately at 1-800-HURT NOW.

If the insurance company is holding onto your money or attempting to minimize covered medical treatments, you want to know about it – and so do we!

You Must Act Swiftly!

Due to time restrictions with workers’ compensation claims, you should take the following into account:

 

Report the Injury Immediately – If your injury is not reported in a timely fashion, your claim can be delayed or denied, risking important wage loss and medical benefits for you. Your report should be in writing and include specifics concerning how the accident happened and which areas of the body were involved. Identify all injuries, no matter how minor they appear at the time, because not doing so will leave you exposed to a denial from workers’ comp. Ask for copies of any report your employer asks you to complete, and taking a phone photo as you complete each page of any report is always a good idea.

Request the Panel List – A panel list will include at least 6 workers’ compensation medical providers that an injured employee must treat with for the first 90 days following a work injury. There are several exceptions to this rule, however, which the team at Georgelis Law can explain to you and help you navigate. The important thing to know, however, is that the employer or insurance company cannot force you to treat with a specific provider on the panel list.

Many times, we see injured workers who have been forced to treat with one of the local medical “factories,” instead of being able to choose from the list. Also, if the type of doctor, therapist, surgeon, etc. who the employee wants to see is not on the list–for instance, if the injured worker has a traumatic brain injury, but no neurosurgeon or neurologist appears on the list–then, the employee may seek treatment with a neurologist or neurosurgeon of their choice, so long as the medical care is reasonable, necessary and directly-related to the work injury suffered. Georgelis Injury Law Firm is more than happy to answer any questions you might have regarding this.

Seek Prompt Medical Treatment – The longer the timeframe between your workplace injury and the initial treatment, the more difficult it may be to have your injury deemed ‘work-related.’ Documenting your injuries and symptoms is critical to support your right to ongoing and future income loss and medical benefits through the workers’ compensation system.

 

Circling the Wagons That is Hard to Believe

As mentioned, insurance companies want to minimize their losses.  That goal takes precedence over your financial future and physical well-being.  Here are a few shocking realities:

  • The insurance company could stop paying you at any time if it fails to file a ‘Notice of Compensation Payable’.
  • An inaccurate or incomplete description of your injuries, as reported by the insurance company, could limit your medical treatments.
  • A ‘medical case-manager’ – aka: ‘rehab nurse’ – hired by the insurance company may 1) convince your doctor (behind your back) you can return to work, before you are ready 2) state that your work restrictions can be reduced, before they should be and 3) declare you are fully recovered, when you may not be.

You need the best workers’ compensation attorneys in the field.  We will recover monetary compensation from every possible source:  the workers’ compensation system, liability insurance, and/or a lawsuit against negligent parties.
