VWF injury victim question

I live in Preston and work in Manchester. I have worked with vibrating tools for many years and I think I may have a VWF injury. Could you tell me how I can find a vibration white finger claim solicitor to contact to discuss making a claim and if there is anyway to speak to a specialist lawyer free of charge or online before deciding whether to pursue a claim against my employer or not.

VWF solicitors response

Finding and choosing a specialist vibration white finger claim solicitor to help you with your claim need not be a daunting process. We recommend you take the following steps:

Appreciate how vibration white finger injuries come about

Vibration white finger or VWF is a condition caused by excessive exposure to vibration.

In the workplace exposure can be from various different types of vibrating tools, such as pneumatic drills.

Over time the condition gradually becomes worse.

The severity of the symptoms is largely dependent on the extent of vibration you experiences (the larger the vibration experienced the worse the condition) and the duration of the exposure (the longer you are exposed to vibration and the more times in your working week you are exposed – the worse the condition).

Prove your employer’s responsibility for your VWF condition

Proving your employer’s responsibility for your vibration white finger should be left down to your employer.

We have however written an article explaining the considerations your VWF solicitor will need ti take into account to show liability.

Remember – as well as showing fault of your employer, your solicitor will need to consider the limitation period to make your claim and medical causation (whether it can be proven your VWF was as a result of the vibration at work).
