Vibration white finger is also known as hand-arm vibration syndrome, and sometimes as dead finger. It is an industrial injury that comes about through continuous use of vibrating hand-held machinery. Tens of thousands of people are unfortunately affected by vibration white finger, and almost all of them may be entitled to make vibration white finger claims.
Vibration white finger can affect the joints, muscles, nerves, blood vessels or connective tissues in the arm. This can result in tingling sensations, loss of dexterity and discolouration in the fingers. Unfortunately, once the damage to the nerves has been done, there is no remedy to put it right. This therefore means that suffers experience the pain and inconvenience of this condition for the rest of their life.
