Bursistis claims

Bursitis is a condition resulting from acute inflammation of the bursa which is a small sac filled with fluid. It's purpose is to facilitate smooth movement of tendons and muscles over the surfaces of bones and and around joints.

The bursa may be found at various points in the body but bursitis most commonly occurs in the shoulder (Beat Shoulder), the hand (Beat Hand) and the knee (Beat Knee or Housmaids Knee). Symptoms include pain, tenderness and possible stiffness, swelling or restriction in movement of the affected joint.

It is likely to be brought on if the joint in question is subjected to excessive friction, pressure, rubbing or constant repetitive movement.

Although bursitis can occur for various reasons in everday activities the condition can often be work induced as with certain other Repetitive strain injuries. Workers at risk are those whose activities involve kneeling a lot (Beat Knee), or prolonged pressure friction or movement of the shoulder hand or wrist.

Employers are legally obliged to to protect workers from this type of injury particularly with the increase in awareness of the risks over recent years. Part of any health and Safety programme should include an assessment of the exposure of employees to this type of injury and the implementation of suitable preventive measures. If an employee suffers injury due to the failure of an employer to recognise and deal with the risk, a successful compensation claim may result.

Accident in Supermarket
Mrs H was shopping for a small fold out table in a Supermarket. She reached to take one when the stack collapsed falling onto her right foot. X-rays to her foot showed no fracture but she was still forced to use crutches for a few weeks afterwards.

Within 6 months of being instructed Cooks had obtained a settlement offer of £2,000.00 which Mrs H was delighted to accept. She said
"My Granddaughter found your website and recommended you to me. Thank you for all your efforts for my accident claim, I appreciate your kindness. I received my cheque today and will be taking my grandchildren away on holiday with the money you recovered for me"
