All employers in the state are required to maintain workers' compensation insurance if they employ four or more full-time employees. Injuries covered are not limited to those caused by a single instance of trauma but also those developed over a period of time such as carpal tunnel, repetitive motion injury, loss of hearing, sight or other senses, lung injuries, hernias, scarring, occupational diseases, and sometimes even heart attacks and strokes.
