Vibration White Finger (VWF) is a debilitating industrial injury affecting the sensation in your hands and fingers which can result in pain and discomfort, particularly in cold weather.

Roberts Jackson provides quality legal assistance to vibration white finger sufferers looking to pursue claims against their employer(s). Our solicitors work hard to gather evidence, medical records and specialist opinions to prove that negligence took place, using their extensive knowledge of legislation to recover compensation for any financial and medical setbacks caused.

Vibration White Finger causes and symptoms

This industrial injury is often found in workers operating hand-held vibrating, rotating or percussive machinery or tools such as drills and chainsaws. Their exposure to small, repetitive movements can cause damage to the nerves overtime, resulting in VWF symptoms such as:

  • Pale or white fingers
  • Tingling or numbness in the fingers
  • Loss of movement
  • Lack of strength or grip
  • Discomfort or pain

If an employer fails to properly risk assess machinery likely to cause vibration white finger, and does not have relevant safety procedures in place to protect employees from harm, workers are more at risk of sustaining VWF.
