Are you dealing with a workers’ compensation claim? Are you wondering why you haven’t heard back from the insurance company? Has your claim been denied? Are you beginning to wonder if something is wrong? Put your concerns aside – welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm!
Our Lancaster County neighbors have counted on Georgelis Injury Law Firm for help with their legal needs for decades because of our winning reputation and the relationships we’ve established with our clients. Believe it or not, workers’ compensation claims often become a legal issue because employers and insurance companies do what they can to delay, diminish, or deny claims through underhanded tactics to minimize their liability and financial exposure. Our law firm’s workers’ compensation lawyers take on the powerful insurance company lawyers who will do everything in their power to keep your money in the insurance companies’ pockets. We will fight for every dollar of compensation you are due!
If you have any questions or nagging concerns about your workers’ compensation claim, please contact our team, right away, at 1-800-HURT NOW.
Due to time restrictions with workers’ compensation claims, be aware of the following:
Report the Injury Immediately – Not reporting your injury within a certain period of time means 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 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’ compensation medical providers – from primary-care physicians to neurosurgical professionals 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’ compensation system.
You can be assured that our workers’ compensation lawyers will keep a watchful eye on your employer and its workers’ compensation attorneys. We will fight, tooth and nail, to ensure our Lancaster County clients receive every dime and every benefit they deserve.
Our law firm will develop a comprehensive plan to recover your benefits and compensation from every viable source – the workers’ compensation system, liability insurance, and/or a third-party lawsuit against negligent parties.
Injuries happen every day and impact many different areas of the body: neck, low-back and other spine injuries, cumulative-type and repetitive-motion trauma, loss of hearing/sight/ body part (such as fingers or toes). These injuries can be the result of slips, trips, and falls, as well as motor vehicle accidents that have happened in the course and scope of employment.
No matter what the case may be, Georgelis Injury Law Firm will ensure your rights are protected, every single step of the way.
When you’re injured on the job, you should be aware of the following:
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we will not put up with these types of sneaky maneuverings. We will not permit you to become exploited! We will assess your claim, investigate where your situation stands with the employer and insurance company, and inform you of all your options.
Georgelis Injury Law Firm has recovered more than $60,000,000 for Lancaster County’s injured workers and accident victims. Also, our trial lawyers are credited with winning more than 99% of their cases! Perhaps, this has something to do with Georgelis Law having been voted the #1 law firm in Lancaster County, PA – as part of Lancaster County Magazine‘s Best-of-Lancaster Survey for 8 years running!
We are, continually, available for our Lancaster clients to answer questions, to update the progress of each case, and to address any concerns. Our workers’ compensation lawyers are available evenings and weekends. We can visit with you at your home, office, the hospital, or rehab center.
Do not fall prey to your employer or its insurance company who are not looking out for your best interests! Behind the scenes, they are working out every possible detail that will result in delaying, diminishing, or denying your claim. From the moment you make your claim, they are diligently working to ensure that you receive little or nothing regarding your workers’ compensation benefits – but rest easy, our law firm has your back!
Employers and insurance companies know full well that most claimants have no idea what Pennsylvania laws allow for workers’ compensation claims. And even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it doesn’t necessarily mean your claim is as it should be.
Nurse case managers, surveillance, private investigators, and ‘independent’ medical examinations represent an array of ways insurance companies can reduce, limit, or stop your workers’ compensation benefits that are rightfully yours. When so many people are working against you, you need a powerhouse legal team who will work for you!
We know Lancaster County workers don’t easily or automatically have access to legal advice and guidance throughout the workers’ compensation process. It is for this very reason you benefit from our lawyers at Georgelis Injury Law Firm. Also, you will never receive a bill for the time we dedicate to all the details of your case. We work on a contingency fee—meaning, we only get paid when we succeed in getting compensation for you.
Far too often, 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. When our workers’ compensation lawyers handle claimants’ cases as soon as an injury occurs, we make sure all parties are playing by the rules! Our law firm will make sure your injury has been described properly 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!
