A woman working for a canine boarding kennel suffered a disc herniation in her low back when a large dog knocked her over. Doctors treated her injury conservatively with injections and physical therapy. At one point, her doctors contemplated a surgical procedure, but the woman ultimately decided not to undergo surgery. The effects of her work injury left her unable to perform her work at the boarding kennel or any other work. After receiving 130 weeks of Temporary Total Disability benefits, the maximum amount allowed under Minnesota law, Fields Law Firm helped the woman to pursue a claim for Permanent Total Disability Benefits. We were able to secure a large settlement for future wage loss benefits and as part of the settlement, the workers’ compensation insurer remains responsible for reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to her work injury.
