Thank you for spending a moment with Georgelis Injury Law Firm – we are top-rated workman compensation attorneys serving Lancaster, PA and a host of neighboring communities. The arena of workman compensation claims is notoriously riddled with employers and insurance companies who value their profits far more than they value the people who deserve to be rightfully compensated.
Our law office serves the American worker who deserves justice and maximized compensation regarding work-related injuries. Injured employees often deal with delays and diminished or denied workman compensation benefits – our law office will not allow that to happen to you!
Have you waited too long for the results of your workman compensation claim? A delay tactic by the insurance company could be the reason. This approach is used, in hopes of discouraging claimants into giving up and just going away.
Has your workman compensation claim been completely denied? Denying claims is what insurance companies will do – they want to keep your money in their pockets! If you have lingering doubts about your work-injury claim, call our law office immediately at 1-800-HURT NOW! We will fight for every dollar of compensation you are due!
Due to time restrictions with workman compensation claims, know 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 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, 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.
Our Legal Team is Here to Protect You!
As our client, you can be assured our workman compensation lawyers will keep a watchful eye on your employer and the insurance company involved. They need to be watched to ensure they are putting your best interest first and not attempting to diminish or deny your benefits.
Our law office will develop a strategic plan to recover your benefits and compensation from every possible source – the workman compensation system, liability insurance, and/or third-party lawsuit against negligent parties.
Work-related injuries are many and varied – from neck, low-back and other spine injuries to cumulative-type and repetitive-motion trauma to loss of hearing/sight/ body parts (such as fingers or toes). Additionally, injuries can be caused by slips, trips, and falls as well as motor vehicle accidents occurring while in the course and scope of employment.
If something is wrong with the way your workman compensation claim is being handled, our legal team will get to the bottom of it and make it right! With Georgelis Injury Law Firm, you’re in dedicated hands!

A Few Things to Remember…
Don’t assume or expect your employer or the insurance company to do what is best for you! Behind the scenes, they are working out every possible detail to do what is best for them! From the moment you make your claim, the clock is set to see that you receive little or nothing regarding your workman compensation benefits – but take a deep breath, we have your back!
Employers and insurance companies know, full well, that most claimants are unaware of what Pennsylvania laws allow for workman compensation claims. Even if you are receiving income-loss benefits and your medical bills are being paid, it doesn’t necessarily mean your claim was, or is, being handled properly and ethically.
Nurse case managers, surveillance, investigators, and ‘independent’ medical examinations represent a sampling of the many ways insurance companies can reduce, limit, or stop your workman compensation benefits that are rightfully yours. When so many people are working against you, you need a powerhouse legal team who will work for you!
Additionally, the Lancaster County workforce does not automatically have access to legal advice and guidance with the workman compensation system. This is why you benefit from the seasoned knowledge and skill our law office provides.
Know too, that 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!
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. Don’t put yourself through that confusion and concern.
When our workman compensation law office handles claimants’ cases as soon as an injury occurs, our lawyers make sure all parties are keeping the process moving, and that all the boxes are checked on the worker’s behalf! We 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!
