How an injured victim can get help
Getting help from someone you trust that understands claims and the legal system should be non-negotiable. Yet so many people just do not bother to seek out help when they were injured through no fault of their own.
Industrial illnesses in Docklands
An injury lawyer is someone who not only understands the law, but also understands what you are going through when you damage a part of your body. In the case of vibration white finger, this means that they can empathise with your pain, your feelings of numbness in the arms and even the feelings of disappointment and anger at the situation you are in.
- Pain in the arms – the case of vibration white finger is one in which the person dealing with it will feel a lot of pain. Because the muscles and the nerves start to become damaged, the resultant pain is bad and for some, is permanent, treatable only with medications.
- Numbness – the problem set out above is also known as dead finger and this is literally because it kills the nerves in your hands. So while you should be able to control your own movements, the case of dead finger can take that option away from you.
- Vibrations – some people feel the problem of dead finger as a series of constant vibrations. This must become frustrating at some point and as many people discover once they have contracted the injury, it never goes away.
