Minnesota Bursitis Attorney
Bursitis is the medical term for an inflammation in any of the body’s sacs of synovial fluid, called the bursae. Bursae are located in areas where muscles and tendons move across the bones. When healthy, bursae sacs decrease the friction caused by movement in these areas. When the bursae become inflamed, causing bursitis, movement can become strained and painful. The most common cause of bursitis is repetitive motion and/or extreme pressure.
If you are suffering from bursitis caused by work-related activities, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation or other financial compensation from your employer to help you recover. To learn more about your legal options in this situation, do not hesitate to call the knowledgeable Minnesota bursitis lawyers of Robert Wilson & Associates at 612-334-3444 today.
Causes of Bursitis
There are many different types of activities that can lead to inflammation of the bursae. Some of the bursitis cases that we typically handle include:
- Knee bursitis – having to work in a kneeling position (often associated with house work and/or construction)
- Wrist bursitis – performing computer work that that necessitates constant typing
- Elbow bursitis – using machines that require you put extreme pressure on your elbow joint
While these are some of the common areas where you can be affected by bursitis, this painful inflammation can also occur in shoulders, hips, and even your big toe. In some cases, the pain from the repetitive motion injury may force you to miss work in order to recover.
If you have developed bursitis after performing a repetitive motion or activity that damaged your bursae, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. We are committed to getting you the workers’ comp that you need to support yourself and your family while you recover from this injury.
