VWF is an industrial disease which results in symptoms of tingling numbness and whiteness (blanching) in the fingers.
Symptoms are usually caused by constant exposure to vibration in the workplace. Fingers often lose sensitivity and the whiteness or blanching becomes more obvious in the cold.
Workers most at risk of developing the condition include construction workers, miners and those employed in heavy industry where vibrating equipment is used including, pneumatic drills, hammers and wrenches.
Members of our industrial disease team would be pleased to discuss whether you have a potential claim. Please have as much information available as possible as to the exact nature of your condition, whether it has been diagnosed and about your present and past occupations and employments. This discussion would be confidential, free and with no obligation to proceed.
