Either They Win Or You Win!

One of the worst things you can do to yourself is place faith in how your employer and the insurance company will handle your workers’ compensation claim. Your trusting nature could result in your benefits, livelihood and/or financial future becoming severely compromised through a delay or an outright denial.

Employers’ premium amounts increase when more workers, than estimated, file for workers’ compensation benefits. As you can imagine, they don’t like that, and they will do what’s necessary to minimize their financial exposure.

Don't Become a Victim!

To begin with, claimants must fulfill certain obligations and responsibilities to obtain full medical and financial benefits. The kicker is, many times, the employers and insurance companies will not accurately convey what those specific obligations and responsibilities are! As a result, it is not unusual for claimants to be left with a mere fraction of what would have otherwise been full compensation.

The workers’ compensation attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm will not allow you to become a victim of the system! We are determined and relentless, and will use every legal avenue to ensure you receive every penny of compensation you deserve! Time restrictions, however, mean action must be taken quickly.

If you’re injured, here are some things you should do:

  • Report the Injury Immediately — Not reporting the injury in a timely manner can lead to a delay or denial of your claim. 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. Taking a phone photo as you complete each page of any report is prudent.
  • Request the Panel List — A panel list will include workers’ compensation medical providers – from primary care, or family, physicians to neurosurgical specialists to physical therapists to chiropractors. Be aware that if you choose to visit a doctor who is not on the list, 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 considered ‘work-related’. Documenting your injuries and symptoms is critical to support your right to ongoing and future benefits through the workers’ compensation system.

More Underhanded Schemes!

There are any number of situations that could jeopardize your workers’ compensation benefits. Take, for example, 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 are not.

Despite all this disturbing insight, there IS good news: our Lancaster, PA workers’ compensation attorneys will keep a close eye on your employer and its workers compensation insurance carrier, and we will make sure the benefits you are owed are fully realized. We will assess your claim, investigate where your situation stands with your employer and insurance company, and apprise you of all your options.

With work-related injuries, our aggressive workers’ compensation attorneys will develop a strategic plan to recover your benefits and compensation from every potential source: the workers’ compensation system, liability insurance and/or a third-party lawsuit against negligent parties. From neck, low back and other spine injuries, to cumulative-type and repetitive-motion trauma, to loss of hearing, sight or a body part (like fingers or toes), to slips, trips and falls to motor vehicle accidents occurring while in the course and scope of employment, our experienced and award-winning attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm will make it right when a worker has been wronged!

You Pay No Upfront Fees!

Georgelis Injury Law Firm will not charge an upfront fee to handle your case – fees only come out of the benefits or settlement amounts we earn for our Lancaster, PA clients—not their pockets. The moment our workers’ compensation attorneys accept your claim, you will feel secure knowing you have powerful legal allies on your side. We will be, continually, available to answer your questions, keep you updated, and address any concerns you have.
