Construction accidents can cause the most serious injuries to a worker, as it is a sector full of all kinds of heavy machinery and tools that can put the safety of its operators at serious risk. Do you know the process you must follow to obtain a millionaire compensation after this type of accident? Here we tell you.
A study conducted in 2020 by the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health, known by the acronym NYCOSH, indicated that during that year there were at least 41 cases of workers who lost their lives in construction accidents in New York City, which meant a slight increase in the range of fatality compared to the previous year, from 10.2 to 11.1 per 100,000 workers.
If you are injured in these types of cases, it is important that you ensure that you follow the appropriate legal path, which will lead you to receive each of the benefits that you deserve as a victim, including a millionaire compensation that will cover all of your injury expenses.

What expenses does a compensation for construction accidents in NY cover?
When being a victim of a construction accident, injuries can be extremely risky, depending on the magnitude of the event and the causes that led to the accident. Generally, the costs generated can be high, especially when surgical interventions and specialized treatments are necessary.
Some of the expenses that can be covered by compensation for construction accidents are:
- Medical attention
- Prescribed medications
- Ambulance transfers
- Clinical studies
- Lost wages
- Lost labor benefits
- Expenses for temporary or permanent disability
In addition, by having the support of a good team of labor lawyers, you can have the opportunity to add to your compensation a series of expenses that, although they may not arise immediately after the accident, over time could arise as a consequence of the event. An example could be possible cases of stress and/or depression, pain and suffering, etc.
What are the steps to follow to obtain a millionaire compensation?
To obtain the highest amount as compensation after suffering a construction accident in New York City, it is important to follow a process that will start from the first moment the event occurs.
However, there is a key step that is essential to obtaining adequate compensation, and that many times, due to victims’ lack of knowledge about their rights or even fear of retaliation from the employer, is often avoided.
This step is reporting the accident to the employer or construction site supervisor. By reporting the accident, the process that will allow the insurance company to deliver you adequate compensation according to the magnitude of the injuries you have suffered in the event can be initiated immediately.
Why is it important to have construction accident lawyers when suffering an accident?
While a worker who suffers construction accidents has the right to receive compensation by law, which must cover each of the aforementioned expenses, there may be occasions when there are obstacles in the process, which can make the benefit inadequate or, in worst cases, no compensation is provided to the victim.
To prevent this from happening, it is important that you can count on the legal support of a team of construction accident lawyers who know your rights very well, as well as the legal processes that will be necessary to ensure the best results for your accident case.
