The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides financial and medical benefits to workers hurt on the job. To collect and protect these benefits, however, you must fulfill certain obligations and responsibilities under the law. Unfortunately, rarely do employers or insurance companies timely and accurately convey these rights and responsibilities, so, without the proper legal direction, it is very easy to be taken advantage of as a claimant. The team at Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C. focuses its practice on protecting injured employees. Our experienced and aggressive attorneys guide you through the process with sound and effective legal advice so you receive your rightful payments as quickly as possible. We stand with you, the injured worker, to make sure your medical expenses are paid and that you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled. Voted Lancaster’s best law firm by the readers of Lancaster County Magazine for seven years running, our lawyers and paralegals will always be by your side, so you never feel alone through the workers’ comp process and know that we always have your back!
Here are a few of the steps you should follow to best protect your rights to benefits under Pennsylvania’s workers’ comp laws. Remember that only by consulting a capable work injury attorney can you know all of your legal obligations.
Our skilled and experienced lawyers will assess your claim and thoroughly investigate where things stand and what needs to be done in order to ensure that the employer and insurance company are playing by the rules and that you are fulfilling your obligations necessary to retain eligibility for work injury benefits.
Just like the injured worker has responsibilities to fulfill under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Comp Act, so do employers. These include, but are not limited to:
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C., our top workers’ compensation lawyers know the ins and outs of the system and will immediately conduct a thorough investigation of your claim, whether accepted or denied. We will then apprise you of all your options and move in whatever direction you choose, swiftly and aggressively. Our decades of experience helping Lancaster’s injured workers brings with it a tremendous familiarity with how to get things done efficiently and effectively for you. Many times, a lot more can be accomplished—with no cost to you—by communicating with the involved parties rather than immediately filing a petition with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and requesting a hearing before a workers’ compensation judge. Give us the opportunity to review your workers comp claim, with no charge and no obligation, to learn what is best for you.
