Repetitive stress injuries affect employees in all industries. For those in the construction industry however, hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) is all too familiar. Stemming from the repeated use of vibrating tools such as drills, chainsaws, and power drills, HAVS affects the nerves in the hands and arms, resulting in numbness and feelings of “pins and needles” as though the hand were asleep.
Individuals living with HAVS struggle with everyday tasks like buttoning a shirt, handling coins, and other tasks that require use of fingertips. In some cases, HAVS is so severe that individuals are unable to return to work and have to file for Workers’ Compensation benefits.
If you or someone you love has been affected by HAVS in Philadelphia, you are urged to contact an experienced Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation lawyer to assist in applying for benefits.
