I worked every day with pneumatic drills for 16 years and wonder if i can claim?

Ian Morris

Working with equipment such as pneumatic drills and similar vibratory equipment repeatedly has been proven to cause serious long term health problems such as Vibration White Finger/Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome and associated nerve problems in the forearms and fingers.

If you believe that your working history is the reason for you suffering from painful symptoms such as burning sensations in the fingers, loss of grip strength and general weakness you should see your Doctor and discuss your symptoms and working history. If diagnosed with such a condition it is very possible to then go on to pursue a claim for compensation.
