Every worker has the right to expect to be safe at work, owing to efforts taken by the employer to safeguard their health. Where your boss has failed to keep you from harm at work by putting into place the right health and safety measures, it’s possible that you may have a claim for compensation to make. Our no-win-no-fee bursitis lawyers have years of experience handling these types of claims, and can consult with you free of charge to let you know whether you might have a claim.

What Is Bursitis, and when can I Claim?
Bursitis is the inflammation and swelling of a bursa, which is a fluid-filled sac that forms under the skin to cushion your tendons and bones from damage. Pain is the main symptom of bursitis, and it increases with movement or pressure. Bursitis often occurs during particular jobs or activities where the employee may be required to kneel or crawl during their job, e.g cleaners, mechanics, engineers, housekeepers, manual workers, or IT staff. But under the law, your employer should take precautions to make sure you are safe doing your everyday work. Where they do not, or whether the measures they take are inadequate, you may be able to make a no win no fee bursitis compensation claim.
Is There A Time Limit For Making A Bursitis Claim?
As with many different types of law, making a claim for getting bursitis at work has a time limit, to prevent claims being made far too long after your diagnosis (which makes the case harder to prove). In legal terms, we call this a ‘statute of limitation’.
In the UK bursitis claims should be brought within three years of being told you have a condition linked to noise exposure. If you have a noise related condition, contact our no win no fee industrial disease solicitors today to find out whether financial compensation may be an option for you.
