About Bursitis

Symptoms of work related bursitis have been recognised as an occupational health hazard for many years. If your job or workplace for instance exposed you to carrying out a lot of work on your knees, you may have already developed bursitis in your joints or be at an increased risk of doing so in the future. Some occupations involving having to be on your knees or crawling are particularly prone to causing bursitis. Potentially any worker who, through their employment, has to work on their knees could be at risk.

Your employer is under a legal duty to ensure your well being and protection in the work place and to minimise the risk of exposure. If you are suffering from bursitis, you may have grounds for a no win, no fee claim.


There are many occupations that can potentially lead to bursitis exposure including;

Industrial labourers                                        Cleaners

Caretakers                                                      Mechanics

and many more.


Bursitis mainly affects the elbows and the knees. Fluid filled sacs called ‘bursae’ protect our muscles from our bones.  There are about 160 bursae in the body.  If the bursae are put under pressure for long periods or knocked frequently then they can swell and become painful.


If you suffer from bursitis, you may have grounds for a claim.


  • You need not be still employed by your employer to make a bursitis claim.
  • You don’t need to have had a formal diagnosis or medical treatment for your condition to make a claim

How is Bursitis Caused?

If your job involves working on your knees or crawling, it is possible that you may have developed symptoms of bursitis. Such exposure has been regarded as an occupational hazard for many years and your employer should have taken steps to minimise your exposure. These preventative steps include designing work so employees do not spend too long on their knees, provide protective equipment such as knee pads, have a system of staff rotation in place, allow employees to take regular breaks and provide seating where possible.  If your employer has not taken such steps then this may amount to negligence and has out you at risk as a result.


Are There Different Types Of Bursitis Injuries?

Yes. Bursitis is common in the elbows and knees but can also affect other joints such as the hip, shoulder and ankle. You may have grounds for a claim if you are suffering from these type of swollen joints that have resulted or been aggravated by the work that you have carried out.

In  2006, Mr S received £3,750 (£5,000 in current terms) for elbow bursitis which had largely resolved within 14 months.

You may also be able to recover past and future loss of earnings and other expenses including medical costs, expenses for adaptations and modifications required around the home, the cost of care plus many others.
