Thank you for visiting Georgelis Injury Law Firm – serving Lancaster and all of Central Pennsylvania. We are guessing you are frustrated or worried due to a workplace injury claim that has been denied, delayed, or remains questionable in some way. Whatever your angst may be, the fact that you have a concern at all should be a red flag.
Georgelis Injury Law Firm and its top Lancaster injury and accident lawyers have handled thousands of workplace injury issues – it is one of the focal points of our practice. We are an award-winning law firm that 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 – don’t let that be you!
It is critical you have an experienced workplace injury attorney on your side. There is no need to worry about any out-of-pocket costs. We receive only a contingency fee from our client’s monetary recoveries when we successfully handle their claim.
If you feel you are being taken advantage of, or if you feel the workers’ compensation process for your situation is becoming too complicated…of is taking too long…or just “doesn’t feel right,” call our workplace injury team at 1-800-HURT NOW.
Due to time restrictions with workplace injury claims, you should keep the following in mind:
Report the Injury Immediately – If your injury is not reported within a certain period of time, your claim could 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. Document everything and ask for copies of any report your employer asks you to complete.
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 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 on-going benefits through the workers’ compensation system.
Insurance companies want to minimize their losses – so, beware of the following:
