Worker receives occupational disease compensation for vibration white finger

Our specialist occupational disease lawyers were able to secure compensation for our client after he was negligently exposed to excessive vibration by two separate employers.

Although one defendant admitted liability and we were able to settle his claim, the other refused to accept liability for our client’s condition. We were forced to issue court proceedings, which prompted the second defendant’s insurers to commence negotiations. After rejecting an initial offer, we were able to secure several thousands of pounds in vibration white finger compensation for our client.

Vibration white finger compensation for decades of negligent exposure

Since the age of 16, our client had worked for the same multi-national manufacturer, until he was forced to accept redundancy due to the development of vibration white finger, several years prior to the age at which he had planned to retire. Since his redundancy he has been unable to take up similar work due to his injuries, and has been unable to find alternative employment.

Our specialist industrial disease lawyers were forced to issue court proceedings when his employer refused to negotiate an acceptable settlement for our client’s injury and future loss of earnings.

Before the trial however, through continued negotiation, we were able to secure a five-figure sum in vibration white finger compensation.

Before the trial however, through continued negotiation, we were able to secure £15,000 in VWF compensation.
