Don’t Wait Until Tomorrow!
Workers’ comp claims have time limitations – you will want to know the following:
Report the Injury Immediately – Not reporting your injury within a certain period of time means your claim could be denied. Your report should be in writing and include specifics concerning which areas of the body were involved. Document everything and request copies of any report your employer asks you to complete. Add an extra measure of protection and take a phone photo of each completed page of the report.
Request the Panel List – A panel list will include workers’ comp medical providers – from primary-care physicians to neurosurgical specialists to physical therapists. If you choose to visit a doctor who is not on the list, however, your company is not obligated to pay for treatments unless certain circumstances are present. Georgelis Law will be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding this.
Seek Prompt Medical Treatment – The longer the time period between your injury and the initial treatment, the more difficult it will be to have your injury deemed ‘work-related’. Documenting your injuries and symptoms is critical to support your right to ongoing benefits through the workers’ comp system.

A Few Ugly Truths
In all likelihood, your employer or the insurance company do not have your best interest in mind! Behind the scenes, work is done to delay, diminish or deny claims. Little things, like not calculating your average weekly wage correctly, not describing your work-related injury accurately or getting you to sign a document that jeopardizes your indemnity or medical benefits can cause you great financial and emotional hardship. You can rest easy knowing that Georgelis has your back and we will not let this happen!
Employers and insurance companies know that most claimants – understandably so – are not overly familiar with what Pennsylvania laws allow regarding workers’ comp claims. Even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it doesn’t necessarily mean all is good regarding your claim.
Nurse case managers, surveillance, investigators, and ‘independent’ medical examinations represent an array of avenues insurance companies will use to reduce, limit, or stop your workers’ comp benefits that are rightfully yours. When so many people are working against you, you need the best workers’ comp lawyers who will work for you!
Additionally, Lancaster County’s workforce does not automatically have access to legal advice and guidance throughout the workers’ comp system. This is why you benefit from having our lawyers on your side.
No Out-of-Pocket Fees & No Nonsense
You will never receive a bill for the time we dedicate to all the details of your case. Only if we succeed in getting you compensated through litigation or protecting your benefits by defending you in court, or if we settle your claim for a lump sum payment, do we receive a fee. You have nothing to lose by contacting our team!
At times, Lancaster County injured workers receive compensation, but wait to contact a lawyer until they are faced with a Modification, Suspension, or Termination Petition filed by their employer and insurance company – don’t put yourself through that confusion and concern. This is one reason why contacting a workers’ comp lawyer, early, is so important!
When our workers’ comp lawyers handle claimants’ cases as soon as an injury occurs, we make sure all parties are playing by the rules! We will make sure your injury has been described properly by the employer and insurance company in the documents filed with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. When the employer and carrier make their moves, our lawyers will be fully ready to present your claim in a position of strength!

You might be facing a work-injury claim that is taking way too long or, perhaps, your claim was denied. Frequently, insurance companies will delay or deny claims when they have no right to do so. All too often, insurance adjusters are eager to convince claimants to sign away their rights that would have allowed them to receive maximized compensation.
Employers, too, can intentionally sabotage work-injury claims to keep their insurance premiums as low as possible. Though these facts are disheartening and disturbing, you don’t have to give up and become a victim of the system – At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we won’t let it happen!

Due to time restrictions with workers’ comp claims, you should be aware of the following:
Report the Injury Immediately – If your injury is not reported within a certain period of time, your claim could be delayed or denied. Your report should be in writing and include specifics concerning which areas of the body were involved. Document everything and ask for copies of any report your employer asks you to complete.
Request the Panel List – A panel list will include work-injury medical providers – from primary-care physicians to neurosurgical specialists to physical therapists. If you choose to visit a doctor who is not on the list, your company is not obligated to pay for the treatment. Georgelis Law will be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding this.
Seek Prompt Medical Treatment – The longer the timeframe between your injury and the initial treatment, the more difficult it will be to have your injury deemed ‘work-related’. Documenting your injuries and symptoms is critical to support your right to continued benefits through the workers’ comp system.
Employers and insurance companies want to minimize their losses – your physical pain or financial uncertainty is of no concern to them. Be aware of the following:
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.
