Insurance companies are necessary, but some of these insurance companies try really hard to deny or devalue payments that workers are entitled to. At Georgelis Injury Law, we do not allow this to happen.
Insurance companies can encourage or entice an injured person to provide a recorded statement in hopes of saying something that would generate a denial of a claim. Underhanded? – yes! Unlawful? – not necessarily. The important thing for you to know is that our lawyers will work with you to protect your rights and give you the compensation you are due.
Time is a very important part of a workers’ compensation claim, but there are other things to be aware of as well; check them out here:
Report the Injury Immediately – Time is important. You need to report your injury right away. If you do not, you may lose out on money related to your injury. You need to file a report in writing and include as many details as possible about the injury and the pain you are feeling. You need to identify anything that may be wrong, no matter how small because it could turn into a larger issue for you later. Then, be sure to ask for copies of any report your employer asks you to complete, and taking a phone photo as you complete each page of any report can be beneficial, as well.
Request the Panel List – It is also important to know more about the panel list that your employer will give you after your injury. At the Georgelis Law Firm, we can help answer any questions you may have about this panel list, but right here, you can check out some important information. A panel list will include at least 6 workers’ compensation medical providers that an injured employee must treat with for the first 90 days following a work injury. It is important to know 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 there is a particular doctor that is necessary for you to see that does not appear on the list, you can seek out the treatment that is necessary for your injury. As long as this doctor visit is necessary and related to your work injury, it is okay.
Seek Prompt Medical Treatment – Also, be sure you seek out medical treatment right away. The longer you wait, the more your insurance claims may be contested. Documenting your injuries and symptoms is critical to support your right to ongoing and future income loss and medical benefits through the workers’ compensation system.
You are not the priority of the insurance company or your employer after an injury, but you are our priority at Georgelis Law. We want to look out for you and tell you to be looking out for some of the things discussed below.
It is easy to become manipulated or victimized by insurance companies when you are filing for workers’ comp. That is why we concentrate on helping people avoid this. We will sit down with you and talk with you about your injury and your workers’ compensation claim. We will talk with you about the entire process and your options moving forward. We can offer you options and advice and talk with you about what might be the best option for your individual situation. We listen to you and your needs so that we can really have your back. We know that when it comes to wage loss and medical benefits, the financial future of your family and the potential fate of your livelihood, you can’t be too careful. That is why we are here to help.
How will our lawyers help you? We will come up with a strategic plan to help you get compensation from the workers’ compensation system, liability insurance, and/or a lawsuit against negligent parties. While PA’s workers comp laws limit the types of benefits to which claimants are entitled, third-party claims, which oftentimes exist in the setting of an on-the-job injury, can provide victims and their families access to non-economic benefits, like compensation for pain and suffering and loss of life’s pleasures, which otherwise would not be available.
No matter what type of workplace injury you have, we can help you. We have helped people with motor vehicle accidents in a company car, spine injuries, repetitive motion trauma, workplace accidents, and more. Our experienced and award-winning attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm will make it right when a worker has been wronged. Ensuring our clients get maximum compensation is paramount to Georgelis Injury Law.
