Injury while out on work comp Ny state
#1
I am out on work comp in Ny state due to a rotator cuff tear, had it repaired but still out till it heals. My question is if i hurt my other shoulder doing normal things I need to do to live comfortably would it be covered under the same claim! Ie I heat with wood and I think i hurt my other shoulder while carring wood in and favoring my allready repaired shoulder

doubtful. the connection to the work injury would have to be more direct causation.
choosing to carry too much wood with your uninjured shoulder is too loose a link to your employment.
In any event you would need strong medical evidence to support such a claim; do you have a doctor that will make the connection?
