    Salisbury accident claim


    In a working environment, it is not just one off accidents that are the problem.  There are longer term conditions that can result from your job.

    In you work if you have to constantly use vibrating tools for instance, and your boss does not restrict the amount of time you use them, then there is a very good chance that you could get vibration white finger, which is also known as dead finger. Some of the equipment that cause this are as follows.

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

    Every employer has a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of the employees while they are at work. There are certain rules and regulations that could prevent you from getting dead finger, and if your employer does not comply with these and you sustain the condition, you may be able to make a Salisbury accident claim and you might want to use the services of an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline.

    The symptoms of dead finger and why you would use a personal injury lawyer to make a Salisbury accident claim

    Victims may not even realise that they have this condition immediately as it often starts in just the fingertips. It does move further down the fingers though and then you may experience:

    • If you continue to use vibrating tools, the fingers will change colour, they start by going pale and numb before turning red and painful
    • You will eventually lose manual dexterity and grip
    • The condition is made worse by cold and wet weather
    • Tingling, whiteness or numbness in the fingers

    Vibration white finger can not be cured; if you have this illness it is a case of managing the symptoms rather than treating them. This is preventable if only your employer had followed the guidelines, and you should now be making a Salisbury accident claim against them, using the services of a personal injury lawyer.
