New York Bursitis Lawyers
Construction jobs carry an inherent level of danger with them, but many of the injuries you can sustain in the course of employment with a construction company are not actually the result of a particular event or accident, but rather caused by exposure over time to repetitive strain to a particular group of muscles, tendons, or joints. These injuries are known as repetitive motion injuries, and one of the more common types is an inflammation of the fluid filled sacs that protect your joints. This is known as bursitis.
Bursitis is a painful condition which can make it impossible to work while simultaneously requiring significant medical expenses for treatment, often leading to serious financial distress. With the assistance of a New York bursitis lawyer, you may be able to take legal action to recover compensation for your losses, easing the burden of your injury. To learn more about your rights and options, call Hach & Rose, LLP, today at 866-LAWS-USA.

Significant pain and swelling are the primary indicators of bursitis, and only rest and treatment with anti-inflammatory medication will allow the body to recover.
