There can be many reasons why a work-related medical disability claim is denied by the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, but there are a few common reasons why denial is provided. These include a finding that the injury was not caused by the type of work involved, it did not take place during normal working hours, or it did not rise to the standard set for disability.

People who work in physically demanding jobs (i.e., construction workers, delivery drivers, mechanics, electricians, carpenters, landscapers, etc.) are particularly prone to injuries, some of which can be debilitating. Back injuries, shoulder strains and joint damage are commonplace. Yet, it can be very difficult for an employee to prove that their injury is work related because a direct causal link needs to be established.
