Bursitis, in which a fluid-filled sac called a bursa becomes inflamed or swells under the skin, can take some time to recover from. You can get bursitis from excessive repetitive movements of the joints, such as when you run or do other physical exercises. Some people can get bursitis in the workplace. You may have to bend your knees to work with equipment, for example, or kneel for long periods if you’re working in a field or other agricultural space.
If you developed bursitis through no fault of your own, you may be able to start a bursitis accident claim. Accident Advice Helpline specialises in helping accident victims. If your bursitis accident happened in the last three years and someone else can be shown to have caused it, get in touch with us today.
Building a claim
To build a strong bursitis accident claim, gaining credible evidence is of paramount importance. We need to establish who caused your accident and what evidence exists to support your claim. This can include video footage or photographs, showing where you sustained your bursitis and why. If you suffered your injury in the workplace, it could help to show the conditions in which you had to work. Perhaps you were forced to stand or kneel in a particular position for excessive periods of time, which caused your condition.
If you were with others at the time you developed your bursitis, we may be able to get credible witness statements to support your claim. Asking your doctor for your medical records can also help, as this can show the extent and precise nature of your bursitis and what treatment you had to follow.
To begin the process, all you need to do is tell us how your accident happened and who you think caused it. We will then assess your eligibility to make a claim and help you make the best case for compensation if there is enough evidence to do so.

The benefits of making a claim
Suffering a bursitis injury can be irritating, highly painful, and even keep you from living in the way you are used to. You may need to make a bursitis accident claim to obtain compensation to pay for medical fees, prescription costs, travel expenses related to your treatment, and even your everyday expenses. Being properly compensated for your injury is not simply about ensuring the party at fault recognises his or her culpability, it is also about your own financial independence. There can be a significant emotional benefit to receiving accident compensation as well, as it can give you a sense of closure regarding your accident.
