We became one of Minnesota’s largest injury and disability law firms by assisting clients like you.

Client Success Story

Our team of experienced back injury attorneys represented a department store worker in a claim against her employer after a bank of lockers fell on top of her at work, causing a compression fracture in her lower spine. The woman had to undergo numerous surgeries as result of her work injury. Her doctors deemed her permanently unable to work.

The Fields Law attorneys settled the claim through mediation for $99,000, ensuring that the employer and insurer would pay all future reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to her serious and complex back injury.

Injury Risks for Retail Workers

Retail workers may be at risk for developing severe and chronic injuries, such as:

  • Back and Neck Injuries
    Many retail employees are required to lift and move heavy boxes containing merchandise and signage. If boxes are too heavy, or proper lifting techniques aren’t provided, employees can suffer serious back and neck injuries.
  • Foot and Leg Injuries
    Cashiers, salespeople, and greeters often stand in one place for hours at a time. This can put pressure on their feet and legs, and over time, it can lead to painful sores, sprains, and even arthritis.
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries
    Employees, such as stock clerks and cashiers, must often perform the same movements over and over again when stocking merchandise or ringing up customers. These repetitive motions can injure workers’ backs, elbows, and shoulders and cause conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome.

At Fields Law, we pride ourselves on helping injured retail workers throughout Minnesota. Whether you’re worried about your health, getting fired for reporting your injury, or just want to know what happens next, our workers’ compensation law firm attorneys can answer your questions and give you the information you need.

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
