Client Success Story
We represented a man who drove trucks and stocked inventory for a multi-national products wholesaler. The worker suffered an injury to his lumbar spine as a result of lifting heavy objects at work.

The employer and its insurer discontinued his worker compensation benefits arguing that he suffered from pre-existing lumbar spine disease. Despite this, the attorneys at Fields Law fought the insurance company to secure the worker a settlement of $100,000 for his work injury.

Common Transportation Injuries

Because transportation workers are often in vehicles traveling at high speed, they can suffer serious injuries during accidents, such as:

  • Head and Neck Injuries
    Truck, bus, and car accidents can put large amounts of force on the drivers’ bodies. This force can cause painful injuries to their heads and necks that may lead to disability and even become life-threatening.
  • Stress-Related Injuries
    Longhaul truck drivers may be on the road for nearly all of their waking hours for days or even weeks at a time. Sitting in the same position for long periods of time can put stress on muscles and joints and cause pain and injuries.
  • Crushing and Impact Injuries
    Turbulence can disrupt flights and cause airplanes to move erratically in the sky. Although passengers are often secured in their seats when turbulence strikes, flight attendants have no protection and may get crushed by debris or luggage inside the aircraft.

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
