Welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm! This is where you will gain a much better understanding of the huge difference it makes when you retain legal assistance for your workers’ compensation claim. From work-related machinery accidents and vehicle mishaps to chemical exposure and scaffolding falls, accidents happen all the time—and they can be devastating. If you feel your workers’ compensation claim has become confusing or questionable, our attorneys in Lancaster, PA are here to make it right if you feel you’ve been wronged!
It happens: a worker files a workers’ compensation claim only to discover his or her job position has been eliminated. Or, a worker can’t understand why the claim is being, strangely, delayed or denied. Sadly, employers and insurance companies can make it difficult for claimants to receive all the financial or medical benefits that are, legally, due. The insurance giants, especially, will work feverishly to minimize workers’ compensation benefits to generate the most robust profits for themselves.
This is why you need Georgelis Injury Law Firm – our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys are among the best, and they fight for the American worker against the ‘Goliaths’ that are not on their side! Our expertise has earned award-winning recognition as we continue to do ‘battle’ against an unethical system and fight for those in Lancaster, PA who need a potent legal ally!
Do you know how you can allow your employer and insurance company to take advantage of you? It is by not questioning their methods or motives. Your benefits, livelihood, and financial future could be at risk if you hold the belief that the ‘paying side’ is on your side! When our clients discover that their employers typically follow only the bare legal minimum requirements regarding workers’ compensation claims, they are shocked – but that’s only the beginning.
Claimants must fulfill certain obligations and responsibilities in order to obtain full medical and wage loss benefits. Frequently, however, employers and insurance companies will not accurately convey what those specific obligations and responsibilities are. As a result, claimants are left with insufficient or no compensation at all. This shouldn’t happen, but it does!
Our workers’ compensation attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm will not allow you to become a victim of the system. We are determined and relentless and will use every legal avenue to ensure you receive every penny of compensation you deserve! Time restrictions, however, mean action must be taken swiftly. Do not hesitate to give us a call, at 1-800-HURT NOW, for a free, no-obligation discussion about and evaluation of your workers comp 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 a number of situations that could negatively impact your workers’ compensation benefits. For example, consider the following:
If all this sounds a bit unreal, be assured it is very real!

We will assess your claim, investigate where your situation stands with the employer and insurance company and apprise you of all your options.
You need the best possible legal team developing a detailed strategy to recover benefits and compensation for you from every possible source.
