Welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm – this is where our Lancaster, PA neighbors find top workers’ comp lawyers who defend the rights of hard-working Americans who have workers’ comp claims arising out of workplace injuries they suffered. Workers’ comp insurance can be a wonderful benefit if you or a family member endured a work-related injury or sickness that resulted in missed wages, medical expenses, ongoing care costs or even funeral expenses.
Keep in mind, workers’ comp doesn’t cover just catastrophic injuries. It can cover repetitive-motion injuries where constant movement for a prolonged period of time damages muscles, tendons and nerves, thereby, causing carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, tennis elbow, or other types of tissue damage. Repetitive-motion injuries can affect those who work on assembly lines, in offices, in construction work, and more.
Many are under the impression that filing a workers’ comp claim and waiting for the outcome is easy and quick where predictable financial and medical benefits will be readily available. Unfortunately, the workers’ comp system is complicated and filled with nuances and intricacies that can leave unsuspecting workers with little or no compensation. The truth is, employers and insurance companies alike will often attempt to utilize every trick of the trade to ensure Lancaster, PA claimants receive a fraction of the benefits they are entitled to, or nothing at all!
When Profit Trumps People
Did you know some insurance companies reward adjusters and claims representatives for saving them money? How do you think big insurance representatives go about generating financial savings from workers compensation insurance claims? Delaying, diminishing, or denying workers’ comp claims is what insurance companies do to hold onto their profits, and it’s shameful.
So, what does one with a legitimate workers’ comp claim do? The answer is simple: one seeks top workers’ comp lawyers from Georgelis Injury Law Firm.

The Clock is Ticking – Act Now!
Workers’ comp claims have time limitations due to Pennsylvania’s statute-of-limitations. Acting swiftly is critical and gathering evidence as soon as possible could bolster the defense of your case.
Here’s what you should know:
Report the Injury Immediately – Not reporting your injury within a certain period of time means your claim could be 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’ comp medical providers – from primary-care physicians to orthopedic surgeons to pain management doctors to neurosurgical specialists to physical therapists to chiropractors. If you choose to visit a doctor who is not on the list, however, your company is not, necessarily, obligated to pay for treatments unless certain circumstances are present.
Be aware that an insurance company cannot force one to be treated with a specific provider on the panel list. For example: if a traumatic brain injury resulted from the work-site injury and no neurologist appears on the panel list, the injured employee may seek treatment from a neurosurgeon or neurologist of their choice as long as certain stipulations are met. 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 a prerequisite to support your right to ongoing benefits through the workers’ comp system.

We Replace Uncertainty with Justice!
It’s important to know that even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it does not, necessarily, mean your case is being handled the way it should be. Employers and workers comp carriers can lull claimants into a false sense of security while taking action behind the scenes to reduce, stop or eliminate wage loss or medical benefits that rightfully belong to victims of workplace injuries.
Nurse case managers, surveillance, investigators, and ‘independent’ medical examinations represent an array of avenues insurance companies will use to reduce, limit, or stop your workers’ compensation benefits that are rightfully yours. When so many people are working against you, you need top-tier workers’ comp lawyers who will work for you!
Additionally, the Lancaster County workforce does not, automatically, have access to legal advice and guidance throughout the workers’ comp system. This is why you benefit from having our lawyers on your side.
