Workers' Compensation Lawyer Near Me

Welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm and thank you for showing an interest in our services. When you searched for “Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Near Me” you may have had no idea who you would find, but, now that you are here, we will make it worth your while.

The goal of every workers’ compensation lawyer in our firm is to represent every client as if they were family and to protect and uphold every client’s work-injury-related claim. It is important to know, however, that many employers and their insurance companies are guilty of not fully meeting the needs of injured workers who file legitimate workers’ compensation claims. It all boils down to money. You see, the more work-injury claims an employer must address, the more likely the employer will pay higher premiums and the more money insurance companies must pay out, the less profit they make.

With those two points in mind, it is the injured worker who can very easily fall prey to tactics that can reduce or eliminate a legitimate workers’ compensation claim. Don’t let this happen to you. Do you have a concern about an injury that happened at your work site? Are you wondering if your workplace claim will be approved or if the injury might compromise your job position? Are you feeling uneasy about contacting a workers’ compensation lawyer? Don’t be… Feel free to give us a call to discuss your situation at 1-800-HURT NOW – we will listen, answer your questions and evaluate your case for absolutely no charge.

Place Your Trust With US, Not THEM!

For claimants to collect the full indemnity and medical benefits they are allowed, they must fulfill certain obligations and responsibilities. While there are written materials and website content that claimants can read to educate themselves on how to do this, there is no substitute for consulting the best workers comp attorneys in Lancaster, PA, who can guide you through the nooks, crannies and intricacies of Pennsylvania’s complex workers’ compensation laws.

The foundational bedrock for Georgelis Injury Law Firm is justice for the injured…and we have decades of expertise with proven results. But, there are numerous deadlines and periods for compliance that must be met, and we can help you do that. Peace-of-mind is at a premium during a workers comp claim, and Georgelis Law is here to provide it.

Don't Wait – Time is Ticking!

Because there are time restrictions with workers' compensation claims, you should keep in mind the following:

  • Report the Injury ImmediatelyIf your injury is not reported in a timely fashion, your claim can be delayed or denied, risking important wage loss and medical benefits for you. Your report should be in writing and include specifics concerning how the accident happened and which areas of the body were involved. Identify all injuries, no matter how minor they appear at the time, because not doing so will leave you exposed to a denial from workers comp. 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 is always a good idea.
  • Request the Panel ListA 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. There are several exceptions to this rule, however, which the team at Georgelis Law can explain to you and help you navigate. The important thing to know, however, is 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 the type of doctor, therapist, surgeon, etc. who the employee wants to see is not on the list–for instance, if the injured worker has a traumatic brain injury, but no neurosurgeon or neurologist appears on the list–then, the employee may seek treatment with a neurologist or neurosurgeon of their choice, so long as the medical care is reasonable, necessary and directly-related to the work injury suffered. Georgelis Injury Law Firm is more than happy to answer any questions you might have regarding this.
  • Seek Prompt Medical Treatment — The longer the timeframe between your workplace injury and the initial treatment, the more difficult it may be to have your injury deemed ‘work-related.’ 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.

Expect 'Push Back' from the System!

The best claimants’ attorneys in Lancaster, PA know how important it is to be involved with a workers comp claim from the beginning. There are a number of tactics taken by employers and workers compensation insurance companies immediately upon an employee sustaining a workplace injury that, if left unaddressed, could compromise the value of your claim or make it difficult to get the maximum compensation allowable to you under PA’s workers compensation law. Take, for example, the following situations that you could find yourself in:

  • The insurance company could stop paying you at any time if it fails to file a ‘Notice of Compensation
  • 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.

The moment our workers’ compensation attorneys accept your claim, you will feel secure knowing you have powerful legal allies on your side.
