Iowa Workers’ compensation benefits are not limited to injuries that result from acute accidents such as broken bones. In fact, Iowa workers’ compensation benefits also cover health conditions caused by work activities such as repetitive stress injuries or diseases such as hearing loss or from chemical inhalation and silicosis that develop over time from exposures on the job.
