Case Types We Handle

If you were injured at work or you’re disabled and can no longer do the work you used to do, Fields Law Firm can help. Every day, people throughout Minnesota call us to get answers to their questions and for advice. We can explain how to get the compensation you deserve and the medical care you need to get better.

Fields Law handles several different kinds of injury and disability claims, including:

  • Workers’ Compensation
    If you’ve been hurt on the job, our workers’ compensation lawyers are here to help you get the benefits you need to support your family while you get better. We know the workers’ compensation process can be confusing, and we’re here to lead you through it.
  • Long Term Disability
    Long term disability insurance coverage is supposed to provide you with compensation when an injury or medical condition keeps you from working. Our long-term disability lawyers will help you file a claim for benefits with your insurer or protect your rights if your claim was denied.
  • Social Security Disability
    You’ve paid into the Social Security system for years, but the Social Security Administration denies more than half of all initial claims for Social Security Disability benefits. Our Social Security Disability attorneys will build a strong claim on your behalf, so you have the best possible chance of getting your benefits or winning your appeal.
  • Debt Settlement
    If you are unable to keep up with your bills due to an injury or disability, or just struggling to pay your debts, our debt settlement lawyers can help you with debt collection issues, credit reporting errors, creditor harassment, identity theft, and even robocalls.
  • Personal Injury
    Our personal injury lawyers are here to guide you through the claims process if you’ve been hurt. Whether you were injured while using defective products at work, in a car accident, or slipped and fell on a job site, we’ll investigate your claim and help you get the compensation you need to get better and get back to work.
  • Construction Accidents
    Whether you were injured in an electrical accident or hurt due to subcontractor negligence, our construction accident lawyers can help you get all of the compensation you deserve and the benefits you need to get better and return to work.

At Fields Law Firm, we work hard to relieve your stress and take the burden off your shoulders, so you can focus on getting better. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The call is free. The advice is free. Contact us anytime to Get Fields! on your side.

What is the difference between Workers Compensation, Social Security Disability, and Long Term Disability insurance?

  • Workers Compensation
    Most employers in Minnesota are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you are injured at work, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance may compensate you for your injuries and lost wages, regardless of how long it takes you to return to work.
  • Social Security Disability (SSD)
    The Social Security system is funded by taxes and administered by the federal government. In addition to workers’ compensation, Social Security disability benefits are available to injured workers if they meet certain criteria and their injury is expected to keep them from working for at least one year or result in death.
  • Long Term Disability Insurance
    Long Term Disability insurance is provided by private insurance companies. Sometimes your employer will offer it as part of a benefits package, but in many cases, you must choose to participate and pay the premiums. Long Term Disability plans vary based on the insurance company and the level of coverage you choose.

Your eligibility for Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability benefits can play an important role in determining your eligibility for Long Term Disability benefits. If you were hurt on the job, you may be eligible for more than one type of benefit.

SETTLEMENTS AND RECOVERIES IN ALL CASES DEPEND ON SPECIFIC FACTUAL AND LEGAL CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CLIENT’S CASE. PAST CASE RESULTS ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OR PREDICTION OF SIMILAR RESULTS IN FUTURE CASES WHICH THE FIELDS LAW FIRM AND ITS LAWYERS MAY UNDERTAKE.

I had the pleasure to work with Michael and Annie on my LTD case. When my claim was denied by the insurance carrier, Michael didn't hesitate to take them on with an appeal. He worked diligently on the appeal and ultimately won this for me. Mind you, this wasn't a huge case but he treated me like it was and as if I was the only case he was representing. He kept me abreast of vital information, it was clear that he knew his stuff and wasn't afraid to take on the big insurance company. Michael was much more than I ever expected given that our relationship was entirely remote, handled by telephone and email only. Not only is he a strong lawyer, he treated me with compassion and respect. I am beyond pleased with him and the Fields Law team. Michael cares about his clients and he gets the job done for them because he knows how impactful an injury can be to both a person's well-being and their financial security. I highly recommend Michael and Fields Law whether you are local to their Minnesota offices or out of state like myself.read more

Fields Law Firm is great. Patrick Kramer, my lawyer, is fantastic. He and his legal assistant Samantha K. have handled my case for several years. They have kept me informed every step of the way. They are both easy to contact. I have both of their phone numbers and email addresses and they respond promptly to any messages I leave. Without their help I would not have been able to get the disability company to fulfill their promises. It is a relief to leave all the dealings with the disability insurance company in their hands.read more

My experience with Merrick Williams of Fields Law Firm has been truly above and beyond satisfactory. His knowledge and professionalism have guided me through a very difficult time. He and his assistant Angela were readily available to answer any questions and address my concerns. I highly recommend him as an attorney and will use his services again if necessary in the future.read more

Field Law Firm was great my lawyer Zach Schmoll was more than I could ask for. He always kept me in the loop and explain everything perfectly, got back to me whenever I called less than 24 hrs and was a extremely nice guy. This guy is young and knows what he is doing so please don’t let the age fool you. I had a wonderful experience with Field Law and will refer anyone with legal matters to them.read more

Fields Law Firm is simply the very best when it comes to representing you & fighting for your rights! They are a "10 Star" Law Firm hands down! Michael Kemmmitt & Sarah Christensen were simply outstanding to work with. They took over my long term disability case after I was being denied my benefits & gave me the moral support & law experience that I needed to win my case. They were supportive throughout my case & they will fight tooth & nail to assure your rights are not being denied. It is so rare to find a law firm that treats you like YOU are the most important person to them. I HIGHLY recommend Fields Law Firm. They are truly advocates for justice.read more
