Many people during their working life have used vibrating tools. These tools were supplied by their employers and they were expected to use the tools in order to speed up their working procedures. However, unbeknown to thousands of workers they were exposing themselves to a risk of developing Vibration White Finger and years of pain and misery. We at Oxley & Coward have helped hundreds of such workers to claim compensation.
