Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome

HAVS and Workers’ Compensation

If you or someone close to you has developed HAVS and is in need of workers’ compensation benefits, the attorneys at Martin Law are here to protect your rights. We have extensive experience handling workers’ compensation claims and appeals for clients throughout Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania HAVS Disability Attorney

HAVS (also known as “vibration white finger”) is repetitive stress disorder that affects the blood vessels, nerves, muscles and joints. The best known symptom of HAVS is vibration-induced whiteness (VWF), a condition in which the fingers literally turn white.

Other symptoms of HAVS include:

  • Cold sensation in the fingers
  • Numbness in the fingertips
  • Tingling in the fingers
  • Throbbing pain in the fingers

Sufferers of HAVS often experience a loss of manual dexterity, making it difficult to handle small objects like nails and tacks. Additionally HAVS may also force a person to lose grip strength. Our lawyers understand the hardships facing those who have developed HAVS or VWF. We are prepared to help you with all aspects of your workers’ compensation claim or appeal.
