I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. Jefferies Solicitors Ltd dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend Jefferies Solicitors Ltd to anyone who wants to make an accident claim

Bursitis is a condition which affects the movement in joints like your elbows, knees and shoulders. You may have heard it referred to as housemaid’s knee, beat knee or tennis elbow
Sacs of fluid named bursae exist in between bones, tendons and muscles within the body. They soften direct contact between theses bodily tissues allowing limbs and joints to move sinuously. These sacs can become inflamed when there has been repetitive movement or stress in these areas for a prolonged period of time.
The effects of bursitis range in severity with some people seriously affected and in need of surgery. Others choose to cope with minor side effects without seeking medical help. Knees, elbows and shoulders are more commonly affected but there are cases where ankles, buttocks, thighs and hips are also harmed. Typical symptoms include stiffness, aching and soreness to the touch and the ceasing of movement.
A lot of people who make bursitis claims are those who work continually using the joints in their body to perform their job.
The illness can be caused by an injury or infection exacerbated by repetitive movement. Bursitis claims are commonly made by carpet fitters, labourers and mechanics.
In some cases, septic bursitis can develop following an infection. Redness and swelling occur and it can cause a high temperature.
Your employer has a responsibility to do everything possible to protect workers from industrial diseases like bursitis. Employers whose staff are more prone to bursitis may choose to adopt some of the following safety measures to prevent the illness:
The consequences of bursitis are often minimal but there are cases when the condition has made a huge impact on your quality of life. If your employer has not adhered to safety regulations then you could be able to make a bursitis claim if you have been affected.
