Client Success Story

A truck driver fell out of a truck while working for his employer, sustaining a severe low back injury. The employer and its insurer initially paid for wage loss and medical benefits related to his injury.

Then the insurer sent him to a doctor for an independent medical examination. The doctor issued a report stating that the workers’ injury from falling was a temporary aggravation of a pre-existing back condition that had resolved. Based on this report, the employer discontinued payment of the driver’s wage loss and medical benefits.

We fought the employer to obtain a court order which denied the insurer’s attempt to discontinue benefits. In the end, our attorneys and staff worked with the driver’s doctors to obtain a settlement in the amount $100,000 for his work injury.

Workers Most At Risk of Falling

Although almost any worker can suffer a falling injury on the job, some are more susceptible than others, including:

  • Roofers
    People who work on roofs are at high risk of falling – especially if the roofs are at extreme angles or in unsafe conditions.
  • Construction Workers
    Construction workers often transport and work with building materials high off the ground while standing on narrow or unsteady ledges. These conditions make them more susceptible to falls.
  • Utility Line Workers
    Telephone, electrical, and cable technicians often work on power lines that are high above the street. If their equipment fails, they could fall and suffer serious injuries.

Even though you’re hurting and may be disabled after an injury from falling, you may be worried about what your employer will do if you speak to attorney. At Fields Law, we understand your concerns, and we’ll keep your case and information confidential. Get the answers and information you need without the worry.

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
