Client Success Story
A Cottage Grove man fell off a ladder while working at a major retail store. He contacted our law firm shortly after the injury occurred because he was concerned the store was trying to fire him for filing a workers compensation claim. Initially, the workers’ compensation insurer was paying his workers compensation benefits and the initial Xray showed only bruising of his knee.

A little over a month after the initial injury, his workers compensation was denied despite the fact the clients work injury had not improved. Unfortunately, he went on to suffer a second injury with the same employer; he injured his back when lifting a TV.

He underwent an Xray, which showed disc protrusion in the back. The doctor ordered an MRI, additional physical therapy and a referral to a spine clinic.

Ultimately, our team of attorneys negotiated a settlement for our client with the employer‘s Claims Management Department to offset the partial disability and on-going medical expenses related to the injury he suffered following his injuries from the ladder accident.

Causes of Ladder Accidents

Every construction site is different, and not all ladder accidents are the same. A few common causes of ladder accidents include:

  • Defective Equipment
    Problems caused by manufacturing defects, lack of maintenance, or incorrect assembly can lead to failures, causing workers to fall.
  • Improper Placement
    Soft or uneven ground, failure to observe weight limits, and improper usage can cause ladders to become unstable or fail.
  • Negligent Workers on the Job Site
    Construction sites are fast moving places, with large vehicles, heavy equipment, and teams of workers tackling different tasks. Ladder accidents can happen when workers aren’t aware of their surroundings or don’t follow safety protocols.

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

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

Michael and Samantha were always giving me updates in a very timely manner. They were very good at getting back with me if I had questions, and they didn't have the answer at the time of our discussion. They were very thorough in their handling of my case, and we received a positvie ruling due to their efficiency and expertise. Thank you very much Michael and Samantha, I appreciate all that you did to help me with my case. I would definitely refer people to you, as well as use you in the future. Benjamin Chadwick.read more
