Client Success Story
A man came to Fields Law Firm for help when he developed pain in his right elbow, bicep tendon, and wrist while performing his work activities. He had worked for the same employer for more than 30 years.

His repetitive stress injury symptoms developed in his most recent position as a welder. When he reported the symptoms, the employer and workers’ compensation insurer denied liability for his injuries. The man went on to require surgery for his injuries, and incurred wage loss and medical bills.

Fields Law Firm brought a claim on his behalf, and argued that the workers compensation insurer was responsible for the wage loss and medical bills. After bringing the claim, the workers’ compensation insurer ended up admitting that they were responsible, and paid for the wage loss and medical bills.

Unfortunately, our client went on to necessitate another surgery, and developed subsequent injuries. When he was unable to return to his job that employer, his team at Fields secured a $115,000 settlement through mediation.

Common Injuries for Welders, Cutters, and Solderers

Some of the most common injuries for people who do welding, cutting, and soldering include:

  • Eye Injuries
    Welders and cutters are required to wear thick helmets that protect their faces and eyes from toxic fluids and intense heat and light. If workers receive poor quality equipment, they can suffer severe eye injuries, and they may even lose their vision.
  • Burn Injuries
    Welding, cutting, and soldering metal require the use of high heat that is often close to the body. Workers who don’t have proper training or safety equipment may receive serious burns while working.
  • Inhalation Injuries
    Using heat and dangerous chemicals to weld, cut, and solder metal produces gases and vapors that may be inhaled by nearby workers causing internal injuries, functional damage, cancer in the lungs and throat, and even fatal injuries.

What to Do After Your Injury

The time after your welding, cutting, or soldering injury can be confusing. You know you need help, but you may be hesitant to contact a lawyer because you don’t want your employer to find out. At Fields Law, we make private communication with clients our top priority. Get free and confidential advice from our Minnesota workers’ compensation law firm today.

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

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
