Miner’s beat knee 

“Pursuing a claim for miner's beat knee doesn’t have to be complex; we will take the work off your hands and offer first rate guidance from the very first call until you receive your cheque.”

What is miner’s beat knee and what are the symptoms?

Miner’s beat knee is a condition closely linked to bursitis (an inflammation of a bursa). A bursa is a fluid filled sac under the skin. These are located around the joints and between tendons. Bursitis can be the result of repetitive movement of a particular area. 

Miner’s beat knee is a specific kind of bursitis and is caused by working in tight spaces where movement is restricted. Miner’s bodies are being put under pressure by continuously working in enclosed areas and the nature of this job makes the condition common in the coal mining industry.

Symptoms can include:

  • Pain around the knee area
  • A stiffness when bending
  • A noticeable reduction in mobility
  • Swelling around the joints

Miner’s beat knee can change your entire life. You may find yourself unable to work and provide for yourself or your loved ones. Compensation can significantly ease the financial burden and relieve some of the stress and anxiety while you recover.

What do I need to make a claim?

  • Visit you GP; they can give you the care you need and also offer a prognosis
  • Take pictures of your working environment
  • Measure your working area and record the results
  • Speak to your co-workers and find out if anyone else is experiencing similar symptoms
