I would like to thank Fields Law for representing me on my problem fighting Workers Compensation. I’m a factory worker on the same job going on 23 years and I had hand and wrist problems. Work Comp agreed to everything up to the operation, then asked me to go to their Doctor who agreed with everything my doctor had said. But he put in his report that it wasn’t due to working at the company, so Work Comp denied my claim!
They told me I could fight my case, so I called the Minnesota Dept. of Labor who said I needed a lawyer. I did some Praying and called Fields Law Firm. I told them about my case and the concerns I had and they told me all my options and the course they thought we should take.
Between my attorney and paralegal, I felt I was in good hands. My case wasn’t the big cash cow, but both were speedy in returning my calls and answering my questions. And I have to say, I got more than I was thinking I would get!
I hope I never need Lawyer over work comp again, but if I do I have Fields Law in my cell and if anyone at my job needs a Work Comp Lawyer I will refer them to the Law Firm of Fields.
Thanks again for everything.
Sincerely, Jeff R.
I first contacted Field Law Firm after dealing with a Work Comp insurer that ignored requests for an old knee injury, as well as never followed through with denial letters. I basically felt I was getting the runaround and wanted to make sure my rights were protected.
While this was happening I was injured again, this time my dominate hand. Not wanting to say something I shouldn’t, I called Fields Law and let them know. I was put on Light Duty for about 7 months with my injury getting worse. I made appointments for a specialist to check it out.
Fields Law suggested I get a QRC to attend my appointments with me and to ask questions that I didn’t even think of. After the 7 months of light duty I was informed that there was no more light duty, and was sent home. I received about 4 and a half months of Work Comp, and then the checks stopped coming.
Fields Law filed with the state and I received a check in October, with the promise to continue payments (which never came). Six months later we went to court and won everything. I received a partial check as opposing side decided to appeal the case.
As my Doctor got me as healthy as I can be, I was informed by my work that that they felt I could continue my job. I returned for approximately 3 months until they decided to settle and have me resign from the job. The settlement negotiations were handled all by Fields Law.
I felt if I ever had a question I could call and either talk to my attorney or the paralegal at any time. I did receive follow up calls checking on how I was doing when they hadn’t heard from me in a while. I was and am a person with them, not just a case or a number.
I would and am recommending Fields Law to anyone who has a Work Comp issue. I feel that if it wasn’t for them, I would have been ignored and let go with permanent injuries. I would like to thank the staff at Fields Law for all the help and seeing this through to the end. I will suggest that if you’re getting the runaround, or even if you just got hurt, contact them and protect yourself.

“Working with Fields Law Firm and Kristen Gyolai have made all the difference in my short and long term disability claims. Although I prided myself on being intelligent enough to handle my own case and I was certain that my disability was clear, I couldn’t go up against a big corporation and a large insurance company.
Kristen took over when I was at my wits end. She made them take my case seriously and both claims were approved for the full amount immediately after her appeal. I’m so happy that my nightmare is over and I’m receiving the benefits I’m entitled to.”

“I am so grateful for the successful appeal you were able to submit to the Long Term Disability Insurance Company. You did so with limited assistance from me and on a very short timeline. Because of you my life will be much more comfortable financially in the future.
What the insurance company did to me was so wrong and it devastated me both financially and emotionally. I cannot thank you enough for what you did to get my benefits restored from the day they wrongly stopped paying them. I would recommend you, your legal assistants and the Fields Law Firm with no hesitation.
I am so thankful I asked you and your firm to take over and help me. You changed my life forever and I will be forever grateful.”

“I had back surgery in April 2014. Prior to which I had been on 4 pain medications, in extreme pain and desperation. I exhausted the short term disability benefits because I was still recovering and still on nerve pain medication. This nerve pain med had serious side effects and the doctor had to taper that med gradually from my body. I was not ready to go back to work because mentally the drug had countless effects on me.
When I applied for long term disability benefits the insurance company used an uninformed lazy doctor to go through my medical records for a lengthy 6 weeks to reject my application. I was devastated and swore revenge. I googled Fields Law and luckily they came to my rescue. Their lawyer Kristen was really good, kind, reassuring to me. She worked with my primary physician and won the appeal for me. Thanks to Fields Law I got my long term disability check from the greedy insurance company. Thank you Fields Law.”
