Our client was employed as a Ground Worker for Sheffield City Council from 1974 to 1988, for South Yorkshire Buildings and Civil Engineers from 1994 to 2002 and for South Yorkshire Tarmacadam Contractors from 2002 to the present day.
His vibration white finger was caused by excessive levels of vibration from different machinery (including jigger picks, compressed air guns, whacker plates, Stihl saws, concrete breakers and rollers) left him with symptoms of whiteness brought on by cold weather, as well as tingling, numbness and a lack of dexterity and grip strength.
The claim settled without the need for issuing Court proceedings against any of the defendants. The claim was settled within 12 months.
Sheffield City Council eventually paid £7,450, with the other defendants making a combined offer of £5,028, bringing the total vibration white finger compensation to £12,478.
If you or a loved one has suffered from repetitive strain injuries, such as bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy and vibration white finger caused by conditions at work, our solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Industrial Disease Claims page for more information.
