Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome
Also known as “white finger,” hand-arm vibration syndrome is an industrial injury that can beset workers in a variety of industries that make continuous use of vibrating hand-held machinery. If you work in construction, perform utility work or work on an assembly line, hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) could keep you from performing a job you have done your entire life.
HAVS affects tens of thousands of workers. At Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo, our attorneys are dedicated to helping workers who have been debilitated by work-related injuries. Since 1936, our Philadelphia law firm has been devoted to protecting the rights of workers. Our 11 offices throughout Pennsylvania serve clients personally. Our attorneys are at your service to pursue the compensation you and your family deserve based on lost income and several other factors.
What Is Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome?
Our attorneys make it their duty to understand all the factors that may have led to HAVS injury. We defend your rights in and out of court, advocating for your injury compensation.
HAVS affects blood vessels, nerves, muscles and joints in the hand, wrist and arm. If you suffer from HAVS or “white finger,” you might have lost the ability to perform every skill you have to provide in the labor market.
A history of exposure to machines such as asphalt breakers, jackhammers, drills, electric saws or Sawzalls may cause discoloration in your hands or fingers, numbness of the fingers and/or loss of manual dexterity.
If we can prove that your injury is the result of work-related exposure to vibrating hand-held machinery, your injury could be compensable.
