VWF or HAVS Claims

VWH or HAVS is a work-related condition caused by excessive exposure to vibrating power tools.

Employees that have used vibrating power tools over long periods of time can develop vibration white finger also known as hand arm vibration syndrome. Vibrating power tools often linked to the onset and cause of vibration white finger or hand arm vibration syndrome include pneumatic drills, grinders, chainsaws, concrete breakers, sanders, hammer drills and heavy duty gardening power tools. Symptoms commonly include coldness, numbness, whitening and tingling of the fingers.
