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.

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

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
