Vibration White Finger (VWF) regularly occurs in people whose jobs involve any type of vibrating machinery and in particular, hand-held machinery – e.g. power drills, chainsaws and road breakers. Vibration White Finger is one of a range of conditions collectively known as Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).


“Your employer owes you a duty of care to ensure your position is protected.”

 

Vicki Wright, Manager of Personal Injury Department

He must make sure that you receive the appropriate training, provide anti-vibration gloves and make sure that you have sufficient breaks during the day.

Living with the disease can be very uncomfortable.

Symptoms include fingers going white in cold weather, lack of strength, pain and throbbing when the fingers become warmer once blood returns to them.

If it can be proved that your employer should have known the potential risks of VWF bearing in mind the type of work being done, it may be possible to claim compensation. If you have worked for more than one employer using the types of tools that could cause these problems, then it may be a little more difficult to prove liability.

If you believe that you have suffered problems with your arms, hands or fingers as a result of working with specific hand-held machinery, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Legal aid is not available for these types of claims and we therefore offer assistance under a No Win No Fee Agreement.
