Suffering vibration white finger? Injury lawyers in Scole can help you to claim for your injury

Vibration white finger, or dead finger, is more commonly known as hand-arm vibration syndrome and is associated with prolonged and repetitive use of hand held, vibrating equipment and tools. It is unclear how the use of vibrating tools over at least a 10 year period can cause the devastating symptoms of vibration white finger, however once the symptoms develop they are irreversible.

What type of tools cause vibration white finger?

Vibration white finger may be caused by the prolonged use of any tools that vibrate, tools such as:

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

What are the symptoms of vibration white finger?

It takes a relatively long period of time for symptoms to develop after using the vibrating equipment.  However, symptoms may include:

  1. Tingling and numbness of the fingers.  It may begin in the tips of the fingers and over a period of time develop over the whole finger.  As the condition worsens the whole finger may change colour, turning white.  Sensation and functionality of the finger may worsen and numbness will become constant.
  2. The fingers change colour and this can be worse in cold, wet or damp weather when the symptoms worsen considerably.  The finger may turn red, blue and white as blood flow is restricted further.
  3. Pain and throbbing can occur as the blood flow is restricted and nerve damage to the fingers develops.
  4. The reduced sensation and blood flow means that normal use of the fingers are lost.  Dexterity and fine motor movements are impossible due to pain and loss of grip.

Can you avoid vibration white finger?
