Thompsons Solicitors` occupational disease lawyers regularly help people across Britain get maximum compensation for bodily injury caused by hand vibration syndrome (HAVS). To learn more about how they can help you, check out our frequently asked questions below. The musculoskeletal injuries associated with hand-arm vibration syndrome are often difficult to diagnose, as everything can seem in order on the surface. However, medical tests show that muscle fibers, affected by constant vibrations when using work tools, can change the constant of muscle fibers and lead to a decrease in management. Other musculoskeletal disorders associated with hand-arm vibration syndrome are arthritis, tendonitis and a general decrease in mobility. This is the final version of the agreement on the treatment of damages negotiated between the applicants` lawyers and the defendant`s lawyers. A former worker who developed hand arm vibration syndrome received £118,000 in one of the highest damage schemes in the UK. If your lawyer concludes that there is a strong right to HAVS compensation, he will probably propose to take over the right with a No Win No Fee agreement. This effectively eliminates the liability for you to cover attorney`s fees in the event of a failure of the law. However, a “success fee” is required (maximum 25% of the indemnity) if the claim is conclusive. As with any legally binding agreement, the applicant must always fully understand what is expected of him in all circumstances. Our lawyers have expertise in claims for damages for white finger vibration. In the late 1990s, we dealt with a number of claims against British Coal, resulting in 40,000 former miners receiving £500 million for vibrant white fingers.

The company will be insured to deal with such claims, so it will be the responsibility of the insurer for all compensation. Thompson`s solicitors have been supporting clients who have suffered from hand vibration syndrome since the 1970s, since Thompson`s cases led by Thompsons, established a proven link between vibrating tools and the syndrome and forced employers to protect their employees from the dangers of repeated use. Many of those who, with the help of Thompson`s solicitors, managed to obtain compensation for bodily injury, were part of the coal industry, which included the daily use of vibrating machines, but also other workers, such as construction workers, port and road workers. As soon as an agreement has been reached with your lawyer, your HAVS application will be filed in court. Details of the claim and evidence are made available to the defendant and, if the negligence is sufficiently clear, a settlement amount may be presented to avoid legal proceedings. An out-of-court settlement ensures that the defendant minimizes its legal costs, that HAVS compensation is paid to the claimant sooner rather than later, and that a very difficult and difficult period for all parties is completed immediately.
