The Connecticut Compensation Act, 23 Yale Law Journal 580 (1914)


Connecticut is a proverbially conservative State and rarely has
been the first to take up innovations. In adopting an act providing
compensation for injured workmen, she has had the advantage
of the experience of other countries and other American
States. More than three decades ago she took the same course
in framing a system of reformed procedure and availed herself of
the experiments which had gone before.
The Workmen's Compensation Act will doubtless require and
undergo important amendments before it reaches its final form.
As it stands now, it represents some of the best features of the
system which have proven themselves practical elsewhere, with
changes designed to adapt it to Connecticut needs.
