Client Success Story

A man suffered a serious work injury to his shoulder when his co-worker ran into him with a forklift. The man driving the forklift was driving the forklift with the load stacked so high, that his line of vision was completely blocked. The negligent worker was in clear violation of the employer’s safety regulations when he operated the forklift blindly.

The workers’ compensation insurer originally accepted liability for the man’s injuries, but later denied all responsibility. The insurer alleged that the man exaggerated the impact between his shoulder and the load on the forklift.

When the insurer discontinued the man’s benefits, Fields Law Firm stepped in and fought to get them reinstated. After a hearing in front of a judge, the insurance company was ordered to continue paying the man wage loss benefits.

After receiving temporary total disability benefits for the maximum time allotted under Minnesota law, it was clear that the man could not return to work. Fields Law Firm helped our client bring a claim for permanent total disability benefits. We were able to reach a settlement with the workers’ compensation insurer.

What is construction site negligence?

Worker negligence on construction job sites can take many forms, including failures to properly:

  • Comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.
  • Handle toxic substances.
  • Maintain equipment or tools.
  • Mark gas lines or underground wires.
  • Provide training to workers.
  • Signal heavy equipment operators.

You don’t have to face the claims process alone if you’ve been injured by negligence on a job site. Our Minneapolis construction accident attorneys can explain what you need to do to get the benefits you’re owed and the medical care you need to get better.

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
