Time is Not on Your Side!
Due to time restrictions with workman compensation claims, the following information is 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. 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 workman 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, your company is not obligated to pay for treatments unless certain circumstances are present. Our attorneys 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 workman compensation system.
We’re Your Staunch Legal Ally!

Keep This in Mind
Never believe that your employer or the insurance company has your best interest at heart! Behind the scenes, they are working out every possible detail that could result in delaying, diminishing, or denying your claim. From the moment you make your claim, the clock is set to insure you receive little or nothing regarding your workers’ compensation benefits. But take a deep breath because our workman compensation attorneys will be on your side!
Employers and insurance companies are fully aware that most claimants are unaware of what Pennsylvania laws allow regarding workers’ compensation claims. Even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it doesn’t necessarily mean correct procedures have been followed or respected, 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 experienced compensation attorneys 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 attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law. You should also know 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 litigation, do we receive a fee. You have nothing to lose by contacting our team!

When our workman compensation attorneys handle claimants’ cases as soon as an injury occurs, we make sure all parties are putting the injured worker first.
