Minnesota Slip and Fall Lawyers

Although slips and falls are not always serious, they can sometimes lead to persistent injuries that cause pain and disability. Many people slip and fall during their daily lives, but some workers are subject to conditions that make slip and fall injuries both more common and more severe.

When you contact us, we’ll put our experience to work when we give you confidential and trusted advice on your pathway to recovery. Just dial 1-888-343-5375 or complete our free form.

Client Success Story
The attorneys at Fields Law represented a man who worked as school janitor. The man slipped and fell on ice while working, tearing his right shoulder rotator cuff. Due to his injury, the man was not able to return to his job as a janitor.

His employer initially compensated him for his injury, but eventually stopped paying benefits based on a doctor’s opinion that his shoulder problem was pre-existing and that his work injury was only temporary in nature.

Our team worked with the client’s treating doctors to refute the employer’s position. We helped him obtain a settlement of $150,000 from his employer, which included compensation for medical expenses, and the lost wages and permanent disability he incurred as the result of his work injury.

Occupations That Cause Slip and Fall Injuries

While almost any occupation can lead to slip and fall injuries, some jobs are more likely to cause those injuries than others. These occupations include:

  • Maids and Housekeepers
    Workers who clean homes and hotels can often find themselves in an unexpected wet environment, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and hallways, and have a higher risk of slipping and falling due to lack of traction on the floors and slippery surfaces.
  • Roofers and Construction Workers
    Roofers and construction workers often must walk and transport heavy materials on high, unsteady, and uneven surfaces. These conditions can lead to severe slip and fall injuries if walking surfaces or workers aren’t properly secured.
  • House Painters
    Whether they’re painting an indoor room or the outside of a building or house, painters often use ladders to reach their workspaces. If companies provide their painters with faulty equipment or ladders, they can fall and suffer serious injuries.

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
