Machinery-Related Injuries at Work

Heavy equipment and machines are important parts of the modern workforce that many workers interact with on a daily basis. Unfortunately, machines are often dangerous to use if they aren’t maintained or if workers aren’t properly trained before operation.

Many industrial machines use large amounts of force, and that means serious and even life-threatening machinery-related injuries can occur if there is a workplace accident. Our Workers Compensation lawyers in Minnesota know that workers like you who were hurt by machines may be confused about your next steps. If you need guidance, Fields Law Firm can give you the advice you need to be confident about your recovery and claim. Just dial 1-888-343-5375 or complete our free online form – there’s no obligation.

Client Success Story

A woman working as a machine operator at a manufacturing plant suffered an injury to her right hand when she fell into a machine at work. As a result of this injury, she developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Her pain eventually spread to other parts of her body, as is common in people suffering from this condition.

Her employer and the workers’ compensation insurer denied that the pain in was related to the hand injury she developed at work. Our workplace accident attorneys obtained a court order requiring her employer to pay for the medical treatment she needed to treat her injury. In addition, we helped the woman secure a $200,000 settlement against her employer and its workers’ compensation insurer.

High-Risk Machinery Jobs

Occupations that often cause workers to suffer machine-related injuries include:

  • Farm Jobs
    Farm workers use heavy equipment and machines, like tractors, combines, and grain augers. These machines are capable of causing devastating injuries if they aren’t maintained or if safety procedures aren’t followed during use.
  • Assembly Line Jobs
    Assembly lines move at high rates of speed and are powered by high-RPM motors. Workers can suffer serious workplace accidents if parts of their bodies or clothing get caught in assembly line machines because of inadequate safety measures.
  • Mechanic and Car Repair Jobs
    People who work in garages and car maintenance centers often use high-powered jacks and other equipment to work on vehicles. But if the equipment malfunctions, it can fall and crush workers underneath.

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

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
