Donnington Park is a motorsport circuit near Castle Donnington in Leicestershire. Originally part of the Donnington Hall estate, it was created as a racing circuit during the pre-war period when the German Silver Arrows were battling for the European Championship.
There are many accidents in motorsport but the participants are fully aware of the risks they are taking. Unlike lots of employees who go about their job day to day without realising that the vibrating tools they are using are irreversibly damaging the nerves in their fingers creating an industrial condition commonly known as vibration white finger.
If you have contracted vibration white finger, you should talk to injury solicitors in Donnington
Vibration white finger, to use just one of its names, is an industrial injury that is caused by using vibrating tools for periods longer than the safety limits allow. Your employers should not allow this to happen, they should have precautions in place to protect you from work related conditions. If they fail in these duties injury solicitors Donnington suggest you make a personal injury claim for compensation.
Realising you have the condition
Many victims do not initially realise they have a problem but may experience:
- Tingling, whiteness or numbness in the fingers, possibly only the tips of the fingers to start with. As the condition progresses, the whole finger may become white and start to lose feeling.
- If you continue to use the vibrating tools, you may experience periodic attacks where the fingers change colour at low temperatures. They start off by going pale and numb, then this changes to a rose pink colour and the fingers start to throb.
- In the severest of case the attacks will happen more often and last longer. A lot of pain can be experienced together with reduced grip in the affected hand.
Although the medical profession has been aware of this condition since the early twentieth century, they still do not fully understand why it happens.
