Thank you for visiting Georgelis Injury Law Firm – it is here where you will find highly-seasoned workers’ compensation lawyers who are experienced in this niche arena.  As lawyers who serve Lancaster County, we fiercely fight for the ‘underdog’ who, far too frequently, becomes victimized by insurance companies who delay, diminish, or deny workers’ compensation benefits – we won’t allow that to happen to you!

Hard-working Lancaster County residents reach out to Georgelis Injury Law Firm because they know they can place their faith in our experience and focus on workers’ compensation.  The ethics, principles, and commitment we extend for every client who walks through our doors is unrivaled.

Is your workers’ compensation claim, seemingly, lingering somewhere and taking far too long to be processed?  Or, was your workers’ compensation claim completely denied?  Delaying claims and denying claims is what insurance companies do.  If you feel you have been subjected to either of these classic insurance tactics, call our workers’ compensation lawyers, immediately!

Our Lancaster County clients want peace-of-mind, and our work-accident lawyers work hard to achieve that goal.  Your concerns no longer need to keep you awake at night – our workers’ compensation lawyers will take on the slick insurance company lawyers who will do everything in their power to deny or diminish your rightful claim.  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.

You Must Act Swiftly!

Due to time restrictions with workers’ compensation claims, you should 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 – Request the Panel List – A panel list will include at least six 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 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.

We Leave No Stone Unturned

The good news is our workers’ compensation lawyers will keep a watchful eye on your employer and its workers’ compensation attorneys.  We will leave no stone unturned to ensure our Lancaster County clients receive every dime and every benefit they deserve.  Our legal team will develop a strategic plan to recover your benefits and compensation from every potential source – the workers’ compensation system, liability insurance, and/or third-party lawsuit against negligent parties.

At Georgelis Injury Law Firm we have worked with clients who are suffering from all types of injuries—neck, low-back and other spine injuries, cumulative-type and repetitive-motion trauma, loss of hearing/sight/body parts (such as fingers or toes), torn knee, hip and shoulder ligaments and virtually anything and everything else you can imagine.  Additionally, injuries can be caused by slips, trips, and falls as well as motor vehicle accidents occurring while in the course and scope of employment.

Our highly-skilled workers’ compensation lawyers at Georgelis Injury Law Firm will make it right when any wrong has been committed!

Brace Yourself!

Be aware of the following:

  • The insurance company could stop paying you at any time if it fails to file a ‘Notice of Compensation Payable’.
  • An inaccurate or incomplete description of your injuries, as reported by the insurance company, could limit your medical treatments.
  • A ‘medical case-manager’ – aka: ‘rehab nurse’ – hired by the insurance company may 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.

As workers’ compensation lawyers, we continue to be appalled with these types of sneaky and underhanded maneuverings.  We will not permit you to be 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 – Voted #1!

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 available 24/7 for our Lancaster clients to answer questions, update the progress of each case, and address any concerns.  Our workers’ comp lawyers are available evenings and weekends.  We can visit with you at your home, office, the hospital, or rehab center.

A Few Final Thoughts

Never expect your employer or their insurance company to do what is best for you!  Behind the scenes, they are working out every possible detail that would result in delaying, diminishing, or denying your claim.  From the moment you make your claim, the clock is set to see that you receive little or nothing regarding your workers’ compensation benefits – but rest easy, we have 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, 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!

Additionally, the Lancaster County workforce does not automatically have access to legal advice and guidance throughout the workers’ compensation system.  This is where you benefit from our lawyers at Georgelis Injury Law.  Also, 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 litigation, do we receive a fee.  You have nothing to lose!

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.

When our workers’ compensation 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 with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and that you are being paid the correct amount in indemnity benefits.  When the employer and carrier make their moves, our lawyers will be fully ready to present your claim from a position of strength!
