What is vibration white finger injury?
Vibration white finger is also known as hand-arm vibration syndrome and dead finger. It is caused by the constant use of vibrating tools or equipment and creates whiteness in the fingers with tingling and numbness.

What is Mallet finger?
Mallet finger injury is a tear of the tendon that straightens the end joint of the finger, often caused by catching a finger head on while playing sport or working. The tendon may tear where it joins on to the end of the bone of the finger, or it may pull off a small fragment of bone.

What is carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
There is a small passageway that runs from the forearm to the middle of the palm, called the carpal tunnel. It is made of bone and connecting tissue and has tendons and one nerve running through it. If one of the tendons gets inflamed or damaged, the nerve gets trapped and creates carpal tunnel syndrome, affecting the thumb, index finger, middle finger and half the ring finger. It is often sustained as a work related injury which your employer should not let happen and if they do, a compensation claim against them using no win no fee* Colyton lawyers would be permissible.
