The Decision and Order of Administrative Law Judge Alice M. Craft found that the Claimant in this case failed to give to the Employer formal timely notice of a right shoulder injury sustained in the workplace in September of 2003. The claim was therefore time-barred. The Claimant was also denied medical benefits due to his failure to produce sufficient medical evidence which would demonstrate that treatment for the claimed injury was necessary. The medical evidence produced suggested instead that the Claimant’s condition was attributable to several non-work-related accidents in which his right shoulder was injured.
