Hand Held Power Tool Accidents
If you have been injured as a result of using vibrating tools at work, you may be able to make a claim. There are strict guidelines on how long employees can use vibrating tools for because they are at the risk of Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome.
Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) can cause carpal tunnel syndrome or vibration white finger. Power tools such as concrete breakers, sanders, grinders, disc cutters, hammer drills, chainsaws or hedge trimmers can cause HAVS. There are strict regulations in place to protect workers from vibration at work.
Our specialist lawyers have recovered millions of pounds in compensation for injured workers suffering from HAVS. Our lawyers have significant experience in dealing with minor injury claims through to catastrophic life changing injury claims.

Will making a claim against my Employer affect my employment prospects?
- All Employers should have employers liability insurance to cover any accident claims.
- Your employer could be in breach of employment laws if they discriminate against you for making a claim.
- We can help you recover from your injuries by making a claim and get you back to work as quickly as possible.
- In our experience, employers do not take offence or make life difficult for employees if they make a claim. Their insurers will only make a compensation payment if we can prove negligence or that they have breached regulations.
