Service Industry Job-Related Injuries

Service jobs, such as food workers, law enforcement, and janitors, are becoming a bigger part of the workforce, not just in Minnesota, but throughout the country. Because these jobs are so diverse, they can put workers at risk of suffering a variety of injuries that can have lifelong consequences.

At Fields Law Firm, our Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Lawyers recognize that the workforce is changing, and we believe that all workers who get hurt on the job should get advice and information from a trusted source. If you work in the service industry and suffered a job-related injury, we’re here to help. Just dial 1-888-343-5375 or complete our free form.

Client Success Story

A server tripped over a rug near the beverage station inside the restaurant where she worked. She tore cartilage in her knee and required surgery. When the woman’s doctor released her to return to work in the restaurant, the woman experienced aggravations in her knee pain. She felt stuck in a job that she felt was damaging her knee further. She turned to Fields Law Firm for help.

We helped our client by securing the help of a Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant, who helped the woman communicate with her employer about what activities she could and could not perform at work. Ultimately, all parties agreed that the restaurant environment was no longer a good place for the woman to work. Fields Law Firm helped the woman secure a settlement for wage loss benefits that she would incur while she searched for new employment.

Types of Service Industry Injuries

Workers in the service industry may be at risk of suffering injuries that include:

  • Burns and Scalding Injuries
    Cooks, bakers, servers, and other food service workers often work around hot stoves, boiling water, and more. If they come into contact with hot items in the kitchen or dining area, they can suffer burns and scalds that require weeks or even months to heal.
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries
    Nursing aides, janitors, and other support staff frequently perform the same routines and muscle movements as they go about their daily work. Over time, joints and muscles can break down and cause painful repetitive stress injuries, making it impossible to work.
  • Violence-Related Injuries
    Police officers and security guards may be at risk of violence, including assaults, stabbings, and even gunshot wounds. These injuries can be life threatening and require expensive and long-term medical care.

No matter what type of job you do, if you suffered an on-the-job injury, the workers’ compensation lawyers at Fields Law want to help you. There’s no appointment necessary to speak with us – just pick up the phone and call our workplace injury law firm. We’re available 24/7 to answer your questions.

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
