Burn and Electrocution Injuries

If you suffered a chemical burn, 3rd degree burns, or electrocution injury on the job, you may need expensive medical care and be unable to work. In fact, your injuries may have left you permanently disabled and in severe pain. These injuries should make you eligible for workers’ compensation and disability benefits, but the system can be confusing and complex.

At Fields Law Firm, we know how the workers’ compensation and disability systems work, and we can help you get the information you need and answer your questions. Call 1-888-343-5375 or complete an online form to get free and confidential advice from our trusted Workers’ Compensation attorneys in Minnesota.

Client Success Story: Benefits Paid Despite Employer Not Carrying Worker’s Compensation Insurance

An injured worker contacted our law firm after he suffered an injury that involved being hit and dragged underneath a vehicle. His injuries included numerous bruises to his body and 3rd degree burns to his lower back.

The injured worker was able to return to work in one week, and his employer paid him for the missed time. However, his medical bills became an issue when we learned that his employer did not have workers’ compensation insurance.

Our workers’ compensation attorneys filed a claim on behalf of our client with the State of Minnesota. The Minnesota Special Compensation Fund accepted liability for the claim and our client’s medical benefits were paid.

High-Risk Occupations

Occupations that may expose workers to risk of burn or electrocution injuries include:

  • Chefs, Cooks, and Bakers
    People who work in hot kitchens around boiling water, ovens, deep fryers, and stoves may suffer severe burns if they come into contact with surfaces or ingredients at high temperatures.
  • Powerline Technicians
    Workers who install, repair, and replace powerlines are at high risk of electrical injuries, as they may be exposed to lines carrying harmful and even deadly voltages.
  • Chemical Plant Workers
    Many industrial plants contain chemicals that can cause severe burns and nerve damage if they come in contact with the workers’ skin.

No matter what type of job you performed, if you suffered a burn or electrocution injury, Fields Law is here to help. Our Minnesota attorneys and paralegals are familiar with every aspect of Minnesota work injury cases and social security disability claims, and we want to take care of your needs, now.

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

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
