How to Claim Vibration White Finger Compensation
Vibration White Finger Compensation can be claimed by those who have been affected by the condition because of their working conditions.
VWF, which is also known as “dead finger”, affects a great many people who are repeatedly and frequently exposed to high levels of vibrations at work.
The exposure to such vibration is usually down to constant use of vibrating power tools.
It is a form of Raynaud’s Disease and can lead to serious consequences. VWF is also a factor in Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), and can cause damage to the vascular systems in the arms, hands, fingers, and wrists.
Vibration White Finger is a very common disease amongst industrial workers, where it is triggered by continuous use of vibrating hand-held machinery.
Although not a life threatening disease, it makes the affected person suffer from acute pain and severe disability, so any person affected by the condition should certainly make a claim for Vibration White Finger compensation.
The Common Symptoms of Vibration White Finger Are:
• Pins and needles in the affected area and numb fingers that turn white.
• Tingling in the fingers that later on start to hurt.
• Strength in the hand is reduced.
• The dexterity of fingers is also affected and so may force people to have to give up their jobs.
• In extreme cases there is also a possibility that the affected person may lose fingers especially if they were operating tools in very low temperatures.
VWF is a recognised industrial disease and the government has made provisions that enable a person to ask for compensation from the employer if the person has acquired this disease while working.
It has been found that more than 228,000 people are suffering from this type of disease in the UK. Many of these people have successfully claimed compensation.
