HAVS which stands for hand arm vibration syndrome, is a common injury caused when the nerves and blood vessels in the fingers are injured due to the strong vibration from power tools and vibrating electrical products, such as heavy machinery.
If you currently reside in or around Camberwell and have been diagnosed with Hand Arm vibration syndrome, we can offer you the help of our personal injury lawyer in Camberwell who can help you claim for your deserved compensation. The reason that you could be entitled to claim for this injury is because you have clearly not been looked after or trained properly and therefore now suffer from HAVS.
What are the symptoms of HAVS?
The symptoms of HAVS can vary greatly from one sufferer to the next and can even take months to show its effects. In some very extreme cases, a person’s hands may become permanently damaged which could result in disability. The individual may not be able to perform certain tasks such as fastening buttons or clasps. If you’ve developed HAVS through your place of work and your job involves operating hand-held vibrating tools, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim with our personal injury lawyer in Camberwell and the rest of the UK.
What are some of the side effects of HAVS?
- Loss of feeling in the fingertips
- Pins and needles which usually occurs only in fingertips, but can, in serious cases reach up the entire length of the fingers and hands
- Decreased and restricted circulation.
Ensure that your place of work do the following:
- Allow you to have regular breaks from using the tools as this is a legal requirement
- Provide you with safety equipment, i.e. anti-vibration gloves and hand support
- Provide the correct tools
- Provide proper and professional training on how to use tools appropriately.
Some of the tools that can cause of HAVs are;
- Pneumatic drills
If you haven’t been looked after properly while using the above tools in your place of work, there is a very high chance you could be entitled to claim through our personal injury lawyer in Camberwell.
