Workers' Compensation Lawyer Lancaster

Thank you for spending a few moments with Georgelis Injury Law Firm!  It is here, where workers’ compensation issues receive exclusive remedies – ‘issues’ being the operative word.  Whether you have experienced a slip & fall in a school hallway or been hit by a falling object on a construction site or been injured in a company-owned vehicle during an official trip, you are protected by the workers’ compensation laws which, typically, cover the cost of your medical care, disability payments and other benefits.

However, workers’ compensation laws can become muddied, very quickly, when insurance companies attempt to keep injured workers from receiving what they are legally due.  If you suspect you have fallen prey to deceptive tactics by an insurance company, share it with our workers’ compensation team.

You don’t want your claim to be delayed or denied, but it can be if an insurance company has its way with you!  Our workers’ compensation lawyers will not allow our clients to fall prey to questionable insurance company tactics.  When you are on our side, you’re on a winning, impassioned team of powerhouse lawyers!

Deny and Delay – It’s What They Do!

Are you beginning to feel that your workers’ compensation claim doesn’t ‘feel right’?  Sometimes our gut feelings prove to be very accurate.  Whether your claim is taking too long or whether other issues are surfacing that make you believe your claim is being disregarded, it may be time to seek legal representation.

We encourage you to contact Georgelis Injury Law Firm, immediately, at 1-800-HURT NOW since your compensation could be compromised or diminished.  Insurance companies will go to great lengths to hold onto their monetary assets.  They do not make money by paying out claims.  They will stonewall, use your words against you and/or even suggest that you don’t need a workers’ compensation lawyer!

With our legal team on your side, you will reap the benefits of no-nonsense, aggressive workers’ compensation lawyers who will fight the good fight and make sure you receive everything you are entitled to!

No Upfront Fees – No Worries!

Georgelis Injury Law Firm will not charge you a penny for the time they spend on your case. The only time we take a fee is if we obtain benefits for an injured worker, if we successfully defend benefits for an employee hurt on the job or if we are able to settle our client’s claim for a lump sum payment. At Georgelis Law, we relish the opportunity to become involved in an injured worker’s claim as soon as possible. This allows us to build their claim as solidly as possible, give the hurt employee guidance and advice on medical treatment, keep an eye on the employer and insurance company and give our client total peace-of-mind from the outset. In other words, every step of the way, we will be available to answer your questions, keep you updated, address any concerns you have and be there as a sounding board for you. And, again, we don’t bill for your time, so you never have to be hesitant about calling, e-mailing or texting us. We love hearing from our clients!

Act Quickly!

Due to time restrictions with workers’ compensation claims, be aware of the following:

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.

Brace Yourself!

Since insurance companies want to minimize their losses, and your financial and emotional well-being is an inconvenience for them:

  • 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 may not be.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers are top notch when it comes to caring for our clients, and we will not allow you to become manipulated or victimized. The team at Georgelis Law will sit down with you for as long as you need to explain the PA workers’ comp system and process, give you your various options and explain the pros and cons of each and provide valuable guidance, insight and recommendations to claimants hurt on the job. We listen to and hear you, making sure you have much-needed and deserved peace-of-mind about the process. Knowing Georgelis Law has your back can make all of the difference in the world. And, when it comes to your wage loss and medical benefits, the financial future of your family and the potential fate of your livelihood, you can’t be too careful.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers will develop a highly-strategic plan to seek and recover your indemnity and medical benefits and compensation from every viable source: 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.

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. Ensuring our clients get maximum compensation is paramount to Georgelis Injury Law.
