There is No Time to Waste!
Due to time restrictions with workers’ compensation claims, the following information will be important for you to know:
Report the Injury Immediately – Not reporting your injury within a certain period of time means your claim could be denied or compromised. 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’ compensation medical providers – from primary-care physicians to neurosurgical specialists to physical therapists. If you choose to visit a doctor who is not on the list, however, 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 deemed ‘work-related’. Documenting your injuries and symptoms is critical to support your right to ongoing benefits through the workers’ compensation system.
We’re On Your Side!

A Few Ugly Truths
Never believe that your employer or the insurance company has your best interest in mind! Behind the scenes, they are working out every possible detail to mitigate their financial exposure to you. From the moment you make your claim, the clock is set to limit your workers’ compensation benefits and get you back to work as soon as possible, even if you are not ready to and your doctor agrees. You can rest easy knowing we have your back!
Employers and insurance companies are fully aware that most claimants are not fully knowledgeable of the Pennsylvania laws controlling workers’ compensation claims. Even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it doesn’t necessarily mean all is good regarding your claim.
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 a potent legal team who will work for you!
Additionally, the Lancaster County workforce does not automatically have access to legal advice and guidance throughout the workers’ compensation system. This is why you benefit from our lawyers at Georgelis Injury Law.
No Out-of-Pocket Costs & No Nonsense
You will never receive a bill for the time we dedicate to all the details of your case. Only if we succeed in getting you compensated through litigation or protecting your benefits by defending you in court, do we receive a fee. You have nothing to lose by contacting our team!
At times, Lancaster County injured workers receive compensation but wait to contact a lawyer until they are faced with a Modification, Suspension, or Termination Petition filed by their employer and insurance company – don’t put yourself through that confusion and concern. This is one reason why contacting a workers’ compensation lawyer, early, is so important!
When our workers’ compensation lawyers handle claimants’ cases as soon as an injury occurs, we make sure all parties are playing by the rules! We will make sure your injury has been described properly with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. When the employer and carrier make their moves, our lawyers will be fully ready to present your claim in a position of strength!
