Four times initial offer achieved in West of Scotland Industrial Disease case
Our industrial disease solicitors represented a man who had developed Vibration White Finger through work - a condition affecting the nerves and blood vessels supplying your fingers.
How did he develop vibration white finger at work?
Vibration White finger is caused through prolonged use of stihl saws and other equipment.
Our client used this type of equipment at work and often well in excess of the amount of time generally considered safe.
Continued working in same conditions after diagnosis of vibration white finger
Our client continued to work after his diagnosis, even though he did not receive any assistance or changes to his working conditions.
Industrial disease claim for compensation
After coming to Digby Brown, we raised a claim for compensation against his current employer for vibration white finger.
Employer denies responsibility
His employers were unwilling to take responsibility or clarify his employment position or entitlements he may be entitled to.
Industrial disease solicitors raise claim in court
With his employer unwilling to accept responsibility, our industrial disease solicitors raised proceedings in the Court of Session to progress the case further.
Initial compensation offer of £10,000 rejected
The insurers of our clients’ employers made an initial offer of £10,000. However, on the advice of our industrial disease solicitors this offer was rejected as we felt the case was worth a lot more.
4 times initial compensation for industrial disease
After negotiations, a settlement of £40,000 was achieved - four times the initial offer.
