Vibration Injury Claims
Vibration injuries can develop from the frequent use of vibrating power tools and equipment, often causing a painful and disabling disorder affecting the blood vessels, muscles, nerves and joints across the body.
Workers in the construction, engineering, agricultural and mining industries are most at risk of developing a vibration injury. These include Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), also known as Vibration White Finger (VWF), Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and Whole-Body Vibration (WBV).
Common symptoms of vibration injuries include numbness in fingers, hands and arms, tingling or “pins and needles”, whitening of the fingers, pain and muscle weakness.
