Client Success Story
We represented a man who injured his left shoulder when he fell off of a truck while working as an abatement worker. As result of his shoulder injury, the man underwent a rotator cuff repair operation and participated in extensive therapy. Post-surgery, he began to suffer from numbness and tingling in his left hand.

The worker’s doctors placed him on permanent work restrictions due to his work injury. Due to these restrictions, the man was laid off and forced to go back to work at a lower wage that what he had earned prior to his work injury. Our team fought the insurance company to compensate him for loss in earning capacity. The settlement included $100,000 and an agreement that the employer and insurer would pay for future medical treatment related to the work injury.

Jobs that Cause Shoulder and Elbow Injuries

At Fields Law, we’ve helped workers who hurt their shoulders and elbows in many occupations, including:

  • Custodial/Cleaning
    The repetitive motions and upper body wear and tear from work like mopping, vacuuming, and scrubbing surfaces can cause injuries and even arthritis in workers’ shoulders and elbows.
  • Construction Work
    People in the construction industry often lift items far above their heads and may twist or hyperextend their joints and muscles. This can cause trauma in their shoulders and elbows.
  • Farm Work
    Like construction workers, farmers often lift, push, and pull heavy objects in their day-to-day work. Over time, they can suffer wear and tear in their arms that can lead to a work-related injury.

No matter what type of job you have, if you suffered a shoulder or elbow injury that interferes with your life and career, Fields Law wants to help you. Our Workers’ Compensation attorneys in Minnesota are ready to give you advice and guidance for your injury. Call today.
