Vibration Injury Claims
Common symptoms of vibration injury include a tingling sensation, numbness or pain in the fingers, hands and arms, whitening of the fingers and muscle weakness. They are brought about by the frequent or extended use of vibrating power tools and equipment.
Trade union members who work or have worked in construction, engineering, agricultural and mining industries are most at risk of developing a vibration injury. Vibration injuries vary in severity and can cause painful - sometimes even disabling - effects on muscles, nerves and joints across the body.
If you’ve been diagnosed with Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), also known as Vibration White Finger (VWF), Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) or Whole-Body Vibration (WBV), your dedicated union legal service can help you to make a claim for compensation.
