Dealing with a workman compensation claim is not a quick process and, oftentimes, claimants do not receive the full financial recoveries they are entitled to. Immediately after an accident, insurance companies will be working to minimize the amount of money they have to pay you—money you are entitled to receive. Does that surprise you?

When it comes to receiving maximized compensation, this is where you need to be. Here, you can rest easy knowing you will not pay any out-of-pocket expenses for the time we dedicate to your case!

You Need to Act Swiftly!
Due to time restrictions with workman compensation claims, it is important to understand the following:
Report the Injury Immediately – Not reporting your injury within a certain period of time means your claim could be delayed or 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 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 workman compensation system.

Your employer or the insurance company does not have your best interest at heart when it comes to the money it has to pay out for your claim. From the moment you make your claim, the clock is set to see that you receive little or nothing regarding your workman compensation benefits. You can rest easy – our law firm knows the insurance companies’ playbooks like the backs of our hands!
Employers and insurance companies know, full well, that most claimants are unaware of what Pennsylvania laws allow for when it comes to workers’ compensation claims. Even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it doesn’t necessarily mean your claim is being handled appropriately.
Nurse case managers, surveillance, investigators, and ‘independent’ medical examinations represent some of the ways in which insurance companies reduce, limit, or stop your workers’ compensation benefits that are rightfully yours. When so many people are working against you, you need a powerhouse workman compensation law firm who will work for you!
Additionally, the Lancaster County workforce does not automatically have access to legal advice and guidance throughout the workman compensation process. This is why you benefit from our law firm being there for you – we’ll fight for every penny you deserve!
Also, as mentioned, 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. No fees, no worries!
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. When our workman compensation law firm handles claimants’ cases as soon as an injury occurs, we make sure all parties are handing your case properly.
Our law firm 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!
