If you are a former miner living with a work related health complication, get in touch

Across the UK there are thousands of former miners suffering from Vibration White Finger (VWF).

Following a number of successful court judgements, including Proctor v Raleys Solicitors and Barnaby v Raleys Solicitors, it has been found that many of these sufferers could be due further financial compensation if their original solicitors were found to have been negligent in the handling of their case.

Recent court rulings concluded that the compensation some clients suffering from vibration white finger received did not include additional compensation for the assistance needed with household tasks, such as gardening, DIY, window cleaning, decorating, car washing and maintenance, due to the negligent handling of their claims by the law firms representing them at the time.

It is thought that claims against the original solicitors could total many thousands of pounds for each client who contracted vibration white finger and still suffers from the disorder.
