These types of injuries, and others, occur due to slips/trips & falls, dog bites, auto accidents, commercial vehicle collisions, workplace accidents, and more.
Even if the other party involved in your accident takes responsibility, you want a personal injury lawyer by your side to ensure your financial compensation is not diminished, in any way. Even if the insurance company seems to be accommodating and considerate, you want a top-notch personal injury lawyer to represent you.
Due to the many legal complexities involved in personal injury claims, as well as insurance companies that will attempt to misguide you, it is imperative you speak with a highly-rated personal injury lawyer as early following an accident or injury as possible.
The bottom line is quite simple: Insurance companies tempt claimants with low-ball offers involving dollar amounts that may sound generous, at the time. In many cases when injury victims accept insurance company offers, they later discover the amount they agreed to was woefully inadequate. At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we leave no stone unturned as we work towards maximized recoveries that could include medical expenses, loss of income, present and future pain & suffering, and more.
Mishaps, falls, crashes, and collisions can occur anywhere and everywhere, and our personal injury lawyer team addresses accident-caused injuries that occur on the job or off the job. From playgrounds to construction sites to restaurants and grocery stores to streets and highways, thousands upon thousands of accidents happen every single day.
Many accidents are avoidable, and negligence often comes into play. Legal representation is critical for those injured who deserve the fullest monetary recoveries and other benefits that would contribute towards what they have endured or will continue to endure – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Often, insurance companies will do everything in their power to delay, diminish, or deny your rightful benefits as an injured party. Those companies that may seem to be looking out for you are also looking out for themselves—they work to minimize their financial outlay and protect their bottom line. If you or a loved are suffering the effects of an accident that you believe someone else caused – whether entirely or partially – don’t settle for less than you deserve – ever!
The following represent the various areas our Lancaster, PA clients have been generously compensated for:
Whether any Lancaster, PA injury victim qualifies for compensation for lost wages, medical bills, reduced earning capacity, expenses for rehab, and pain and suffering, it is important to realize that a time limit exists for filing personal injury lawsuits, known as the statute of limitations. Once the time limit is reached, a claimant can no longer file a claim for injuries or losses.
Contacting our legal professionals as soon as possible is extremely important since being able to preserve evidence can be a huge contributing factor toward building and strengthening your case. If you have any questions related to your accident and injuries, please contact our legal team at 1-800-HURT NOW. Every case we accept is handled as a top priority. We will assess your situation and advise you concerning your next step forward.
From a $1,400,000 auto-accident recovery case to a $2,350,000 motorcycle accident recovery to a $475,000 work/bodily injury claim settlement, our personal-injury lawyer team goes to great lengths to ensure Lancaster, PA clients receive maximum compensation for their losses and damages. Our lawyers seek not only compensatory damages, but, when applicable, punitive damages.
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we offer combined litigation experience of over 100 years and a track record of success that translates into successful outcomes of more than 100 jury trials and thousands of personal injury and work-related claims.
Our team’s dedication, passion, and tenacity have led to the recovery of more than $70,000,000 for Lancaster County’s injured workers and accident victims. Some of our areas of practice that have generated many successful outcomes for our clients, include:
Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents – These types of accidents can occur due to slippery floors, defective pavement, or sidewalks, snowy or icy parking lots and walkways, inadequate lighting – the list goes on. Locations for these types of accidents can include apartment complexes, pools, construction sites, a neighbor’s/friend’s home, a retail store, amusement parks, restaurants, movie theaters, a sidewalk, and other venues.
Construction Accidents – Our personal injury lawyer team will develop a strategic plan to recover benefits and compensation for you from every viable source – the workers’ compensation system, liability insurance, and/or a lawsuit against negligent third parties.
Whether your injury was due to defective machinery, weak scaffolding, a fire, electrocution, lifting/repetitive motion, exposure to toxic substances, etc., you can rest easy knowing Georgelis Law will be by your side from start to finish. Our Lancaster, PA personal injury lawyers will guide you towards the closure you desire and the peace-of-mind you need.
Animal/Dog-Bite Claims – Our team at Georgelis Injury Law loves dogs and we regularly contribute to the ASPCA! As much as we love canines of all types, we remain objective regarding animal-bite injuries – many, of which, are severe. Victims can suffer permanent nerve damage, scarring & disfigurement, and emotional trauma. Some of the most horrific cases lead to the death of the person attacked.
Our personal injury lawyers will investigate a variety of sources for damages: a homeowner’s policy, a commercial or residential property’s liability policy, and/or a renter’s insurance policy. We possess a thorough and detailed understanding of Pennsylvania’s animal attack laws, how to assess the severity of the injuries, and how to seek fair compensation.
Business Property Injuries – Proactive maintenance must be employed by business owners to ensure the public is not subjected to danger, in any form. Restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, and other business properties must take precautions regarding bunched carpeting, uneven sidewalks, newly polished or mopped floors, ice-covered walkways, faulty stairs and handrails, and much more.
When slips and falls or other accidents happen on business properties, our lawyers will determine if the property owner is legally at fault – whether wholly, partially, or not at all. Our personal injury lawyers have handled hundreds of these types of cases, and we have recovered millions of dollars for our Lancaster, PA clients.
Commercial Parking Lot Injuries – Commercial parking lots might seem like an unlikely location for accidents to occur, but they do. Cars pulling out of parking spaces too quickly, vehicles not yielding to pedestrians exiting stores, and ‘run-away’ carts can contribute to a variety of injuries, even death.
Georgelis Injury Law Firm is very well acquainted with medical terminology and conditions associated with neck, back, and spine injuries. That insight, coupled with persuasive depositions from orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons, works in our favor to secure maximized recoveries.
Premises Liabilities – Being injured or hurt on someone’s business or personal property could mean the injured person is able to recover damages. However, simply being injured in this type of location does not automatically deem the property owner as negligent.
Slippery floors, falling objects, pavement defects, loose handrails, inadequate lighting, faulty playground equipment, etc. can be conditions for liability. With that being said, a property with numerous hazards that led to an injury, does not automatically mean the property owner would be found negligent. There are many factors that come into play, and that is where our personal injury attorneys in Lancaster work for you—to ensure you have the best chance at receiving compensation for your injuries.
Your accident-related injury may have taken place at a restaurant, grocery store, apartment complex, private or public pool, retail establishment, or other location. If you believe the property owner or manager was negligent with respect to the ownership and/or maintenance of the property, give Georgelis Injury Law Firm a call at 1-800-HURT-NOW.
Many accident victims – whether in Lancaster, PA or elsewhere – fail to seek legal counsel for their injuries believing a personal injury lawyer would not be affordable. As a result, injury victims settle for low-ball offers from insurance companies.
At Georgelis Law, we operate on a contingency-fee structure. This means we accept a fee derived from the money awarded to a client. Only if we succeed in getting you compensated or protecting your benefits through litigation, do we receive a fee. And, we advance all of the costs associated with handling your case, so you never have any out-of-pocket expenses. You have absolutely nothing to lose!
Know, also, that our personal injury lawyer team will be continually available to answer your questions, keep you updated, and address any concerns. We promise to put your mind at ease – every client’s case is a top priority!
Plaintiffs with personal injury claims often compromise the strength or value of their case by revealing too much or too little information. One might ask, “How can I know what I should or should not do after an accident?” The answer lies in seeking top-notch legal counsel, right away, who can help guide you through the process.
To help bolster your case and ensure your claim is not denied or resolved on unfavorable terms, be aware of the following:
Do not admit fault even if you feel you could be partially to blame. Do not tell the other party, nor a police officer, nor any bystanders, that you accept full or partial responsibility for the accident. Do not apologize since that could be considered an admission of guilt by the insurance company.
Do not waive a police report even if the accident seems minor. Not filing a police report could give your insurance company a legitimate reason to not cover medical bills, etc. Obtaining the other person’s information is not enough – file a police report!
Do not assume you are OK since some injuries may surface days, weeks, or months after a personal injury accident has taken place. For example, a bump on the head could lead to persistent headaches or the discovery you’ve suffered a concussion with long-lasting symptoms. Get fully examined by a medial professional since a medical report could help dramatically with the defense of your case.
Do not answer insurance questions when an insurance representative contacts you – what you say could be used against you. An insurance agent may request a recorded statement from you. Without you realizing it, what you say could jeopardize the strength and value of your claim. It is extremely important to have the best Lancaster, PA injury and accident law firm by your side to avoid any missteps.
Do contact Georgelis Injury Law Firm! This should be one of the first steps you take after a personal injury accident has occurred. Our personal injury lawyer team will contact the insurance company and communicate with the insurance company and other entities, on your behalf. We will make sure your rights are fully protected!
Placing worth on personal injuries requires a great deal of legal experience. We are very familiar with fair settlement values and what compensations our clients require to resume their lives as normally as possible.
The two big considerations in valuing a personal injury case are determining the degree of physical, emotional and/or psychological damages the plaintiff has experienced, as well as how liable the defendant might be when it comes to the injury. A payout could range from thousands of dollars to a million dollars or more depending on the degree of lost wages, any pain and suffering, etc. Our top-notch personal injury lawyers know what we should be fighting for due to our decades of experience with handling these types of cases.
