A painter from Montgomery, Minnesota had back surgery and pain after a work injury in the 80s. He was working with restrictions as a painter when he reinjured his back. The pain eventually became too severe and he was forced to stop work. He received workers compensation benefits, but had issues getting the insurance company to pay for his prescription medication.

Worried that the insurance company was preparing to stop benefits, he contacted Fields Law for help. The attorneys at Fields snapped into action and gathered medical records, the insurance claim file, and our client’s file at the Department of Labor. While preparing for a hearing on continued benefits, Fields attorneys negotiated a $130,000 lump-sum settlement. Our client was overjoyed to stop having to fight for his benefits, and was happy with the persistent advocacy he received from the attorneys at Fields Law.
