    What is Vibration White Finger?

    Vibration White Finger – or Hand-arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) – is a common industrial injury caused by regular and extended use of vibrating tools or machinery. Employers have a duty of care to train their employees in the safe use of machinery and provide them with protection against conditions like Vibration White Finger.

    Vibration White Finger affects the nerves, joints and blood vessels around the wrist and hand. The symptoms often go unnoticed in the early stages, but they worsen over time. Many people are unaware their symptoms are work-related, and often put them down to the simple process of ageing. But these symptoms can be painful and long-lasting, and in some cases are disabling.

    If you're suffering, we can help

    Just about any type of vibrating tool or machine can cause Vibration White Finger if handled incorrectly. If you’ve ever worked in an environment where you regularly used tools such as drills, angle grinders, breakers or saws and you now suffer from problems with your hands, arms or shoulders, you could be suffering from HAVS and could be entitled to £1000s in compensation. Take our quick survey now to find out for free if you can make a No Win, No Fee claim. Our team of experts is here to support you through every step of the process in getting you the compensation you deserve, and getting you back on the road to living a full life.

    Things we're commonly asked

    Vibration White Finger, or HAVS, is avoidable if workers using vibrating tools and machinery do so in adherence with industrial and safety regulations. Your employer should:

    • Make sure any risks from vibration are controlled
    • Provide information and guidance on the risk
    • Monitor your health in relation to the risk
    • Provide personal protective equipment such as anti-vibration gloves
    • Ensure you take adequate breaks from using vibrating equipment

    If you haven’t been provided with any information on the risk of HAVS or Vibration White Finger, or haven’t been given adequate breaks or protective equipment, your employer’s negligence could have put you at risk. Despite updated regulations, there are still thousands of new cases of VWF recorded every year.

    In most cases, a claim must be made within three years of you becoming aware your symptoms may be related to the work you have done or are doing. If your illness is related to work you did outside of the UK, the time limit placed upon making a claim could be shorter. Either way, it is vital that you contact us as soon as possible to find out if you are entitled to make a claim. Answer our few quick questions to log your enquiry, and one of our team will call you back within a few hours.

    If you’ve always self-employed and responsible for your own health & safety then it’s unlikely you could pursue a claim, however one of our advisors can speak to you further and confirm if they believe there is a claim to pursue.

    Start your free claim today

    Yes. Even if your former employer has gone out of business, you could still make a claim. The company will have been insured to deal with claims such as this, so it will be the insurer’s responsibility to make any compensation payouts.

    Start your free claim today

    If you wish to make a claim for compensation against your current employer, any payout will be made by their insurer, not the company itself. There are also legal safeguards in place to protect you against unfair dismissal. This means your employer must be able to justify their reason for dismissing you in relation to your claim, and this is highly unlikely.

    Our team will be able to talk you through any concerns you have about bringing a claim. Log your interest with us today, and one of our experts will call you back within a few hours.

    More than 95% of the cases we take on are resolved out of court, meaning you will not have to appear in court to give evidence. Our legal experts will gather all the information needed to prove your case, and will work tirelessly behind the scenes to get you the compensation you deserve.
