Client Success Story

A woman who worked as a housekeeper for a family injured her back and shoulder when she fell down a flight of stairs while working at the family’s home. Following the injury, she was unable to work for a significant period of time. The family was unaware that they were required to have Workers’ Compensation Insurance for the housekeeper, based on the amount of money the family paid their housekeeper.

In cases where an employer does not have Workers’ Compensation, the State of Minnesota has set up a Special Compensation Fund. After contacting our law firm, our client began receiving wage loss and medical benefits from the Fund. When it became clear that the woman would not be able to return to work as a housekeeper or earn as much as she had been earning prior to her injuries, our Workers’ Compensation lawyers negotiated a significant settlement from the Special Compensation Fund, including future wage loss benefits. Our client was very happy to receive the help she needed, even though her employer did not have Workers’ Compensation insurance.

Occupational Injuries for Maids and Housekeepers

Maids and housekeepers are at risk for injuries, such as:

  • Slip and Fall Injuries
    Wet, cluttered, or unsteady surfaces in bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, and other rooms can cause workers to slip and fall. These accidents can cause serious and disabling injuries, like broken legs, hips, and more.
  • Back, Neck, and Joint Injuries
    Housekeeping work requires long periods of working while standing up, bending over, crouching, and other stressful positions. Over time, this can cause wear and tear on joints and other body parts, and can lead to disability and arthritis.
  • Hand and Wrist Injuries
    Maids and housekeepers often perform the same tasks, like tucking bed sheets and replacing pillow cases, over and over throughout the work day. These repetitive motions can eventually lead to pain and injury in the wrists and hands, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or other repetitive stress 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

My experience with Merrick Williams of Fields Law Firm has been truly above and beyond satisfactory. His knowledge and professionalism have guided me through a very difficult time. He and his assistant Angela were readily available to answer any questions and address my concerns. I highly recommend him as an attorney and will use his services again if necessary in the future.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
