Hello! If you searched for ‘workers’ compensation lawyers near me in Lancaster’, your search ends here! Thank you for visiting Georgelis Injury Law Firm – serving Lancaster and other Central Pennsylvania communities. We are guessing you are frustrated or concerned because your workers’ compensation claim that has been denied, delayed, or remains questionable in some way.
Georgelis Injury Law Firm concentrates and focuses its practice on workers’ compensation issues – helping claimants and other accident victims get the compensation they deserve is all we do. We are an award-winning law firm with highly-skilled workers’ compensation lawyers who will not tolerate the underhanded tactics many employers and/or insurance companies attempt to execute – all in the name of profit. Often, those injured on the job receive no workers’ compensation benefits, at all, due to covert operations that go on behind the scenes.
In some cases, insurance companies intentionally delay claims until the claimant simply gives up – this is just one example of many. For this reason and others, it is critical that you have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side. And, by the way, there are no up-front costs when you work with our firm. We receive only a contingency fee from our client’s monetary recoveries if we successfully handle their claim. Our Lancaster and Central Pennsylvania clients are our top and only priority!
If you feel you are being taken advantage of, or if you feel the workers’ compensation process for your situation is becoming too complicated…or is taking too long…or just ‘doesn’t feel right,’ call our workers’ compensation lawyers near you at 1-800-HURT NOW.
Insurance companies make huge profits. To be fair, we do need insurance companies. But when those entities shove workers’ compensation claims aside in hopes of denying or devaluing payments, that tactic is unacceptable to the legal team at Georgelis Injury Law.
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. Bottom line: our workers’ compensation lawyers will partner with you to protect your rights and maximize your chances of winning your case for the most compensation available to you!
Due to time restrictions with workers’ compensation claims, you should take the following into account:
Report the Injury Immediately – If 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 List – 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. 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.
Employers and insurance companies want to minimize their losses – you are not their priority. Beware of the following:
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.

Additionally, for the eighth year in a row, Georgelis Injury Law has been voted the #1 and best law firm in Lancaster County as part of Lancaster County Magazine’s annual “Best of Lancaster” survey.

Together with Attorney TJ Sabatino, a former Philadelphia insurance defense lawyer, and Attorney Chris Larsen, the former top Deputy Assistant District Attorney of Lancaster County, the lawyers at Georgelis Law have handled well over 100 jury trials and thousands of hearings and other judicial proceedings before the judges and courts of Pennsylvania.
