The arena of workers’ comp claims and benefits is often wrought with underhanded tactics, disinformation and lack of guidance. This is true of many insurance companies and even employers who will attempt to deny claims to ensure their workers’ comp premiums don’t increase. Does that concern you? It should as you could be the next ‘victim’.
If you suspect any type of foul play regarding your workers’ comp claim, please contact our team at 1-800-HURT-NOW. As a sidenote, our Lancaster clients do not pay any out-of-pocket fees. Our payment comes in the form of a contingency fee from our clients’ monetary recoveries. You have nothing to lose!
When workers’ comp insurance companies put profit before people, our hurt-at-work lawyers have a real issue with that. When a company’s protocol involves a bag of tricks that focus on deny, delay, confuse and refuse, it’s time for injured workers to seek legal representation.
Here is a shocking reality: Some insurance companies actually reward employers who are able to deny the most claims. Our legal team will protect your rights, fight any obstacles to the compensation that is rightfully yours, and optimize your chances of getting every covered medical treatment and every dollar you are entitled to!
Due to time restrictions with hurt-at-work claims, please be aware of the following:
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.
Despite all this disturbing insight, there IS good news: our Lancaster, PA workers’ compensation attorneys will keep a close eye on your employer and its workers compensation insurance carrier, and we will make sure the benefits you are owed are fully realized. We will assess your claim, investigate where your situation stands with your employer and insurance company, and apprise you of all your options.

From neck, low back and other spine injuries, to cumulative-type and repetitive-motion trauma, to loss of hearing, sight or a body part (like fingers or toes), to slips, trips and falls to motor vehicle accidents occurring while in the course and scope of employment, our experienced and award-winning attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm will make it right when a worker has been wronged!
Employers and insurance companies want to minimize their losses. Your financial troubles or physical ailments related to your work injury are not their concern. Beware of the following:

Don’t expect your employer or their insurance company to do what is best for you. Insurance companies protect their own best interests, regardless of the cost to your claim and benefits. The bottom line to the insurance industry is money, and these companies have a lot of it because of the way they conduct business. Employers and big insurance have substantial resources at their disposal, in terms of personnel and financially. This means that, from the instant you suffer a work injury, and the clock begins clicking on your claim, they are working behind the scenes to minimize, avoid or terminate your benefits.
