If you are disabled due to a New York State Workers' Compensation injury and are forced to retire you should be sure to document that reason in your retirement papers to specifically indicate that you are taking your retirement because of the work related injury.

It is even more helpful if you can secure a statement from your physician recommending that you retire because of your injury and resulting restrictions/limitations.

Taking these steps can help avoid future litigation in your claim.
