Construction accidents can be the cause of the most serious injuries in a worker due to the fact that this is a sector full of all types of machinery and heavy tools that can put the safety of its operators at serious risk. Do you know the process you must follow to get millionaire compensation after this type of accident? Here we tell you about it.
A study conducted in 2020 by the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health, known by the acronym NYCOSH, revealed that during that year, there were at least 41 cases of workers who lost their lives in construction accidents in the city of New York, which meant a slight increase in the fatality rate 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 to make sure you follow the proper legal path that will lead you to receive every benefit you deserve as a victim, including a multi-million dollar settlement that will allow you to recover a large amount of money for your injuries.

What expenses does NY construction accident compensation cover?
When you are the victim of a construction accident case, injuries can be extremely risky, depending on the magnitude of the event and the causes that led to the accident. In general, the costs involved are usually high, especially when surgical interventions and specialized treatments are necessary.
Some of the expenses that may be covered by a construction accident compensation are the following:
- Medical care.
- Prescription drugs.
- Ambulance transfers.
- Clinical studies.
- Lost wages.
- Lost work benefits.
- Expenses for temporary or permanent disability.
In addition, by having the support of a good team of labor lawyers, you may have the opportunity to add to your compensation a series of expenses that, although they may not arise immediately after the accident, could arise over time as a consequence of the event. An example could be possible stress and/or depression, pain and suffering, etc.
What are the steps to follow to get millionaire compensation?
In order to get the highest amount of compensation after suffering a construction accident case in New York City, it is important to follow a process that will start from the very first moment the accident occurs.
However, there is a key that is essential to obtain adequate compensation, and that is many times forgotten, due to the lack of knowledge of the victims regarding their rights, or even because they do not have adequate legal support.
This step is the reporting of the accident to the employer or supervisor of the construction site. By reporting the accident, you can immediately start the process that will allow the insurance company to give you appropriate compensation, according to the magnitude of the injuries you have suffered in the event.
