We take cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that if there is no monetary recovery, you owe us nothing for our services. In most cases, KBG Injury Law will advance the expenses of the case and will wait to be reimbursed until the conclusion of the case.

There is no charge for your initial consultation with a KBG Injury Law personal injury attorney. This allows you to explore your options and determine whether moving forward with your case is the best decision for you on a risk-free basis. An initial consultation is the all-important first step to getting the results you deserve.

KGB Quick Quiz: What You Don’t Know. . . . Can Hurt You

1. Employees aren’t covered under workers’ comp unless you actually fall or get hurt at the jobsite.
True | False

2. All workers who get hurt off the clock or driving to and from the jobsite would not get benefits.
True | False

3. People with pre-existing health conditions (such as arthritis or prior injuries), are not eligible for workers’ comp if their on-the-job illness is related to that earlier condition.
True | False

Answers

1. False.
Accident-related injuries at the jobsite are definitely covered under workers’ comp, but so are repetitive injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome (from continuous keyboard use or assembly line production) and diseases related to the work environment.

2. False.
With worker hours and responsibilities expanding far beyond the normal workday, you may be entitled to benefits even if you are not on the premises. In many cases you don’t have to be “clocked in” to be eligible.

3. False.
Workers’ comp laws were enacted to protect people. Employees can’t help what happened before, but you have rights if your job significantly worsens existing medical conditions. Back problems occur in many fields, like health care and construction. Day-to-day heavy lifting takes its toll, and you can re-injure a disc or vertebrae and still be covered under workers’ comp.
