Do you think you may be suffering from Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome, as a result of using hand-held vibrating tools regularly at work? You may be entitled to make a Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome compensation claim.
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome may result in you requiring time off work to recover, which may mean financial loss to you or your family. Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome compensation could not only help to provide financial support but may encourage the employer to change the equipment you use from vibrating tools to something that will stop/reduce the symptoms. When the nerve symptoms become too painful for you to work, it might be wise to consider a change of job.
