Frequently Asked Questions

How long will a claims take?

As a general rule, the less complicated your injury and prognosis is, and the sooner you act, the faster your claim will be. Some unscrupulous insurance companies will try to drag proceedings out to put you under financial pressure with the hope you will, therefore, accept a lower offer. We are wise to their ways and can use the courts and law to help prevent this if it does occur.

How should my employer have protected me against Vibration White Finger?

Vibration White Finger, or HAVS, is avoidable if workers using vibrating tools and machinery do so in adherence with industrial and safety regulations. Your employer should:

– Provide information and guidance on the risk

– Make sure any risks from vibration are controlled

– Monitor your health in relation to the risk
– Provide personal protective equipment such as anti-vibration gloves
– Ensure you take adequate breaks from using vibrating equipment
If you haven’t been provided with any information on the risk of HAVS or Vibration White Finger, or haven’t been given adequate breaks or protective equipment, your employer’s negligence could have put you at risk. Despite updated regulations, there are still thousands of new cases of VWF recorded every year.
How does a No Win No Fee* arrangement work?

No Win No Fee agreements work by minimising any financial risk associated with making an injury at work compensation claim for the client. If you do not receive any compensation, you do not have to pay your legal fees. 

If you win compensation (and a lawyer will typically only take a case on a no win no fee basis if they believe there is a very strong likelihood that it will) you will pay your solicitor a fee that is an agreed percentage of your compensation. 

My employer has gone out of business, can I still claim?

Yes. Even if your former employer has gone out of business, you could still make a claim. The company will have been insured to deal with claims such as this, so it will be the insurer’s responsibility to make any compensation payouts.

How much compensation can I expect?

The amount of compensation you receive for Vibration White Finger  will depend on a few factors related to your illness, its circumstances, and the level of support and rehabilitation you need moving forward. Among the factors taken into account are: – The severity of your vibration white finger – If your employer followed the right procedures and processes to protect you – Any medical and travel expenses you’ve had to pay – Your care and support needs, now and in the future Log an enquiry with us today for a free consultation with one of our claims experts.
