Are you dealing with a work-related injury? Are you concerned you will not receive the full financial and medical benefits to which you are entitled? If you have any questions at all, give our workers’ compensation lawyers in Lancaster, PA a call at 1-800-HURT NOW.
If a work-related incident or accident has you wondering if you qualify for some type of benefits or compensation, contacting our workers’ compensation lawyers could prove to be a very wise move! Unknown to many, employers and their insurance companies will do whatever it takes to keep an employee’s entitlement to benefits to a minimum or deny them entirely. Yes, it happens—frequently and deceptively!
Georgelis Injury Law Firm consists of an award-winning team of aggressive attorneys who deal, exclusively and ultra-successfully, with workers’ compensation claims. We have exceptional attorneys who provide superior representation for Lancastrians who are up against the giants of the insurance industry.
Make no mistake – insurance companies are not on your side! They want to win, and they will do whatever it takes to ensure claimants receive as little as possible regarding workers’ compensation claims.
Insurance companies are not interested in your benefits, your livelihood, and/or your financial future – their interest is profit. This is where Georgelis Law stakes its claim to help you and others receive every penny you are owed! In a nutshell, employers and insurance carriers will spend a lot of money to make sure that you, as an injured worker, do not maintain a viable workers comp claim. Any claim, legitimate or not, affects the amount of premiums companies pay. As a result, employers are rarely clear and forthcoming with their employees about what they need to do to properly set up and establish their workers compensation claims. They don’t stop there: insurance companies hire investigators, medical case managers and others to undermine your claim, reduce the amount of your benefits, attack your credibility and/or make it difficult for you to receive the compensation you deserve and Pennsylvania law demands you receive.
To protect and collect the financial and medical benefits you are entitled to, you must fulfill certain obligations and responsibilities. If employers and insurance companies intentionally do not convey what all the specific obligations and responsibilities are, you and others are left with receiving only a fraction of eligible medical care and monetary compensation, or having a claim that is precariously situated and just waiting to be extinguished. Here’s the good news: our workers’ compensation lawyers will fight your ‘Goliaths,’ and we will help make it right if you’ve been wronged!
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 hinder or compromise your workers’ compensation benefits. Take, for example, the following:
