Office and Administrative Support Work-Related Injuries

Office and administrative work is one of the biggest industries in Minnesota and employs hundreds of thousands of workers. Although many people view office work as being safe and danger-free compared to other occupations, it can still put workers at risk of suffering disabling injuries.

At Fields Law Firm, our Workers’ Compensation Lawyers know that all on-the-job injuries, regardless of how or where they happened, can change your life. That’s why it’s our goal to give all injured Minnesota workers the advice and information they need to make the right decisions about their futures.

Client Success Story

A young woman developed carpal tunnel after working at a collection agency for almost four years. Her job required her to sit at a computer all day almost every single day. Her doctor imposed work restrictions that prevented her from going back to that type of work.

To make matters worse, the insurance company sent her to an Independent Medical Exam. The doctor at that exam said that she should be able to return to her regular work at the collection agency. Then the insurance company cut off her wage loss benefits based on the opinion of that doctor, who saw her for just a few minutes.

She turned to Fields Law Firm for help. Our Workers’ Compensation attorneys helped her to secure a settlement with the insurance company. Her settlement allowed her to take some time off of work and prepare to look for work in a new field.

Common Office Injuries

Some of the most common injuries suffered in the office include:

  • Slip and Fall Injuries
    Spilled drinks, leaky roofs, and wet tile in bathrooms can all cause office workers to slip and fall and suffer serious back, neck, and head injuries.
  • Ergonomic and Repetitive Stress Injuries
    Because office workers are often seated at their desks performing the same work for hours at a time, they can suffer neck, arm, wrist, hand, and other repetitive stress injuries if their work stations aren’t ergonomic and designed for their bodies.
  • Neurological and Visual Injuries
    People who work with computers every day can develop severe eye strain after weeks, months, or years on the job. Over time, this eye strain can cause blurry vision, light sensitivity, and even chronic migraine headaches.

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
