The New York State Worker's Compensation Board keeps track of the most common worker's compensation injuries, the incidents that cause them and even the sex and age of injured worker.
The Most Common Incidents

In New York State, the four most common events that result in a work place injury for men and women combined are:

    Being struck by an object
    Falling to a lower level

The list is different when you separate out incidents in which men are injured from those in which women are injured; experts see a correlation between the differences on these lists and the fact that men are more likely to be employed in hazardous industries like construction. For men, the four most common incidents that result in an injury are identical to the list above, except men being struck by or against an object is more common than either type of falling. Women have a slightly different "top four" list:

  •     Overexertion
  •     Falling
  •     Repetitive motion
  •     Assaults by a violent individual

The Most Common Injuries

In New York State, the most common workers compensation injury is an injury to the back.  On average over the last several years about 20% of all accepted workers compensation claims are back related, with men reporting almost twice as many back injuries as women.

After injuries to the back, the most commonly reported injury is actually an injury to more than one body part as a result of a single event or incident. Multiple body part injuries account for about 13% of all accepted claims.

About 12% of all worker's compensation injuries are to the leg. In descending order, the next most common injuries are to the:

  •     Fingers
  •     Wrists
  •     Head
  •     Ankles
