The Connecticut Workers' Compensation Commission defines workers' compensation as providing benefits and medical treatments for workers who are injured or become ill because of their jobs. Workers’ compensation claims can result from injuries in hazardous work environments, fall down injuries, and injuries from frequent lifting, bending, or stooping. Workers’ compensation claims can involve: repetitive trauma injuries, occupational illnesses (chronic asthma and allergies), back injuries, neck injuries, and injuries and falls. Most employees, including part-time and full-time employees, are covered by workers' compensation benefits.
