Highway Maintenance Workers/Road Crews

Thousands of roads, highways, and interstates zigzag across Minnesota and link the state’s towns and cities. These roadways require regular maintenance by highway workers and road crews. But because these crews often work only a few feet away from moving traffic, they are at risk of severe injury on a daily basis.

If you suffered an injury while working on a road or highway maintenance crew, give Fields Law Firm a call. We know that people who were injured due to careless drivers or poor safety protocols are often unsure of their next steps, and we want to take the guesswork out of your decision. It’s our goal to help all injured workers in Minnesota – just call 1-888-343-5375 or complete our free form.

Client Success Story

Our office represented a woman who hurt her shoulder and ribs while working on a light rail crew for a construction company. She sustained the injury while she was pulling out a compressor for the jackhammer. The woman was put on work restrictions by her doctors due to injury. Her employer laid her off because it did not have work for her within her restrictions.

Our attorneys fought the insurance company to secure a settlement that compensated her for her wage loss due to the lay-off, her medical bills, and her rehabilitation expenses. We obtained a settlement for this client in excess of $100,000.

Dangers of Road Work

Jobs that put workers in close proximity to moving vehicles can be dangerous. Road crew employees are especially at risk of accidents caused by:

  • Out of Control Vehicles
    Drivers who fail to maintain their lanes or negotiate turns in construction zones may lose control of their vehicles and strike road crew workers, causing severe injuries.
  • Road Debris
    Rocks, loose vehicle parts, mudflaps on tractor trailers, and other objects are frequently launched from vehicles. This debris can hit road crew workers and cause bruises, lacerations, broken bones, and even death.
  • Heavy and Dangerous Equipment
    Jackhammers, cranes, bulldozers, and other equipment are often necessary during road work operations. This equipment can be dangerous if improperly maintained or operated by a worker without proper training.

The attorneys at Fields Law are proud of our state’s great highways, but we also know the sacrifice and dangers that come with maintaining these roadways. If you need help with your road crew work injuries, trust our experience – we became one of the largest and most respected work injury law firms in the state by helping injured workers like you.

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
