Developed vibration white finger and unsure about claiming? Call the expert injury lawyers in St Johns Wood
Vibration white finger, or dead finger as it is sometimes called, is well known as an industrial injury that is caused by the prolonged use of vibrating tools and equipment, usually in the course of employment. It is unclear how the small nerves and blood vessels in the fingers become damaged by the heavy use of vibrating equipment, but the use of certain equipment has been linked to the development of these debilitating symptoms including:
- Pneumatic drills
- Impact wrenches
- Power drills
Vibration white finger is more commonly known nowadays as hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) and the condition is incurable.
