Insurance companies are like other businesses – they want to thrive and make a profit, and often do so at the expense of employees who get hurt on the job. Injured workers are entitled to pursue and receive covered medical treatments and/or financial recoveries. Insurance companies, however, will use tactics that deny, delay, confuse, and refuse injured workers, so well-deserving claimants, like you, walk away empty handed or with very little!
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, our workers’ comp lawyers will protect your rights, handle everything for you and maximize your chances of winning your case.
Due to time restrictions with workers’ comp claims, the following information should be taken very seriously:
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.
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.

Don’t expect your employer or their insurance company to do what is best for you. Insurance companies protect their own best interests, regardless of the cost to your claim and benefits. The bottom line to the insurance industry is money, and these companies have a lot of it because of the way they conduct business. Employers and big insurance have substantial resources at their disposal, in terms of personnel and financially. This means that, from the instant you suffer a work injury and the clock begins clicking on your claim, they are working behind the scenes to minimize, avoid or terminate your benefits.
If you are denied a legitimate workers’ compensation claim, your benefits, livelihood and financial future could be at risk. Our workers’ compensation lawyers in Lancaster, PA have handled every type of workers’ compensation claim imaginable, representing thousands of Lancaster County’s employees hurt on the job.
Employers and insurance companies know, full well, that most workers are not familiar with Pennsylvania laws surrounding workers’ compensation claims. Thus, many times, they lull you into a false sense of security, while they are working behind closed doors to stop your wage loss and medical benefits. Just because you are receiving income loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid does not mean that your claim is in a position of strength. Nurse case managers, surveillance, investigators and “independent” medical examinations are all ways to reduce, limit or stop the benefits that are rightfully yours. Employers and workers comp insurance companies have all of these people working for them—who do you have looking out for you?
Just as your employer and workers comp carriers have legal requirements they must abide by, so do injured workers. Unlike them, however, Lancaster’s workforce does not automatically have access to legal advice, guidance and insight throughout workers’ compensation claims. One of the benefits to having Georgelis Injury Law Firm involved in your comp claim from the very beginning is that we never charge for our time. So, you will never get a bill for the time we spend meeting and talking with you, the letters we write, the hearings we attend or anything and everything else we do to make sure your workers’ compensation claim is as strong as possible. Instead, only if we are successful in getting you compensated through litigation, or protecting your benefits by defending you in litigation, do we get a fee.
Many times, injured workers receiving compensation in Lancaster wait to contact an attorney until after they are faced with a Modification, Suspension or Termination Petition filed by their employer and insurance company. While we are more than happy to just in at any time to protect your wage loss and medical benefits, there is no downside—and only upside—to having us involved from the time you are hurt. This way, we can make sure that workers comp is playing by the rules, we can advise you on your treatment options, we can make sure you are receiving the correct amount in indemnity benefits and we can make sure your injury has been described properly on the documents filed with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation—all for absolutely no charge! Then, when the employer and carrier make their move, we are ready, and your claim is in a position of strength.
We are continually available for our Lancaster clients to answer questions, update the progress of each case, and address any concerns. Our workers’ comp lawyers are available evenings and weekends. We can visit with you at your home, office, the hospital, or rehab center.
