Vibration white finger, or dead finger as it was sometimes known, is the old name for a condition that now tends to be called hand-arm vibration syndrome. It is an industrial injury triggered by the constant use, for a prolonged period, of vibrating tools and once the damage has been done, is not repairable. Such tools as:

  • Chainsaws
  • Pneumatic drills
  • Sanders
  • Strimmers
  • Grinders
  • Hammers
  • Impact wrenches

These tools are some of the culprits and use of them should be restricted to try and prevent this condition. If it does happen to you, you may be able to make a personal injury claim using expert injury lawyers in Pinner.

An industrial condition like hand-arm vibration syndrome can take years to develop, it can creep up on you without you realising what has happened. The symptoms can start off so minor, just at the end of your fingertips and you may not relate it to a problem. But your employer should have monitored the use of the tools and followed guidelines for the use of them to try and prevent this from happening. If they failed in this duty, you may be able to make a personal injury claim against them using injury lawyers in Pinner.

The symptoms of vibration white finger vary but can include:

  • Tingling, whiteness or numbness in the fingers.
  • Fingers change colour and start to throb.
  • Loss of manual dexterity and pain.

Although the medical profession had been aware of the condition for some years, it was not until 1918 that Alice Hamilton MD made the connection between the condition and vibrating tools. Because of Alice, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
