Vibration White Finger Compensation Claims
If you have suffered an injury at work as a result of operating vibrating machinery, you may be entitled to Vibration White Finger (VWF) compensation, and you should contact our solicitors** in Birmingham to obtain further information.
VWF is a form of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. Vibration White Finger compensation may be available if you suffer from certain symptom. These present themselves as:
- Numbing of the fingers
- throbbing in the fingers
- changes to your sense of touch,
- lack of strength in the fingers
- loss of colour in fingers (which normally occurs in cold weather).
The cause of injury normally relates to use of vibrating machinery such as large drills, chainsaws, trimmers, concrete breakers or other types of pneumatic drilling systems. This type of injury normally arises after a long period of use of such machinery, and may well not be immediately noticeable.
In order to assess Vibration White Finger compensation, a number of factors will be assessed. These include discussing the working arrangements which may have caused the injury, the length of time you may have been exposed to such machinery, the symptoms currently being suffered and the potential effect on future earnings.
