    Injury claim in Strathaven

    Injury claim in Strathaven

    Strathaven is a historic market town in South Lanarkshire, Scotland and is the largest settlement in Avondale.  The town was granted a Royal Charter in 1450, making the Town of Strathaven o Burgh of Barony.  The industrial revolution bypassed the town because of its lack of natural resources, and today it has grown into a commuter town.  Some of the commuters go to other cities where they use vibrating tools and equipment.  If any of them develop vibration white finger, they may be entitled to make an injury claim in Strathaven

    Vibration white finger, dead finger or hand arm vibration syndrome, it doesn’t matter what you call it, you may be able to make an injury claim in Strathaven

    Dead finger, also known as vibration white finger and hand-arm vibration syndrome, is an industrial injury triggered by the constant use of vibrating tools such as:

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

    Your employer has a legal duty to protect the health and safety of the employees, this includes complying with the rules and regulations regarding the use of vibrating tools to avoid staff getting vibration white finger.  If your employer does not comply, and you sustain the condition, you may be able to make an injury claim in Strathaven.

    • Tingling, whiteness or numbness in the fingers.  To start with it may only be in the fingertips so not very noticeable but over time it will spread to the rest of the finger and you may lose the feeling in the affected area.
    • If you continue to use vibrating tools, the fingers will change colour.  They start by going pale and numb before turning red and painful.  Attacks of this will start to happen more often and last longer.
    • You will eventually lose manual dexterity and grip.
