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, Katherman, Briggs & Greenberg 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 Katherman, Briggs & Greenberg 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.

What should I do if I’m contacted about a vocational interview after my work injury?

If you’ve sustained a work injury and are unable to return to your pre-injury position, or if your employer is unable to accommodate whatever medical restrictions you may need, you will continue to collect your weekly wage loss benefits. The insurance company, obviously, has an interest in trying to minimize or stop those payments to you, and if there is no work available to you with your employer, the insurance company will oftentimes resort to hiring a vocational consultant to try and prove that there is other work available to you in the general labor market. It is important for you to remember the consultant is working only for the insurance company and is not looking out for your best interests. In fact, in most cases, the consultant never actually assists you in finding a new job; rather, the consultant uses information you provide about your background, training, and education to identify potential jobs that you could perform, and this information is then used by the insurance company to try and stop your benefits.

If you are contacted by a vocational consultant, you are strongly advised to contact an attorney for guidance. For our clients, we actively participate in the interview process, first by requiring that the interview take place in our office, under our supervision, to make sure that only relevant information is requested. It is important for us to become involved as early as possible in your case to provide you with the proper guidance through the process.
