4 Construction Workers Injured in Partial Building Collapse at Traverse City Work Site

Lawyer Comments: Construction injury lawyer Laurence Banville appears in the second part of this article, discussing how injured construction workers can receive the financial compensation they deserve.

An investigation into a partial building collapse that left four construction workers injured continues and could last several weeks, according to UpNorthLive.

Four construction workers were injured, including one who was seriously injured after being buried in waist-deep debris in a partial collapse of the four-story Honor Bank construction project on East Front Street. The collapse happened at around 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 19.

The investigation will include a collaboration of architects and a structural engineer in order to determine if the construction had followed plans. Traverse City Fire Marshal Mike Sheets also plans to analyze data on wind speed and direction at the time of the collapse.

One of three vertical structures on the site collapsed, which damaged an elevator shaft at the center of the site. Emergency responders quickly evacuated the site after this occurred.

According to the report, East Front Street from Boardman Avenue to wellington Street will likely be closed until the elevator shaft has been braced and crews have removed debris surrounding the site.

Types of Financial Compensation For Construction Injuries

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents injured construction workers and helps them secure the full financial compensation they’re entitled to. Here are some of Laurence’s thoughts on the options available to injured construction workers:

When a construction worker gets seriously injured on the job, financial concerns are often one of the biggest worries. Injured construction workers have to deal with high medical expenses while out of work, along with other personal and financial difficulties. This is why it’s important to be aware of your options for financial compensation after getting injured while working in construction.

In many cases, a construction injury will be covered by workers’ compensation. However, this is not the case for all workers – including independent contractors. Additionally, there are some situations where additional financial compensation could be available through a construction injury lawsuit.

Lawsuits are available in injuries caused by third-party negligence – such as a property owner who failed to make sure their property was safe before beginning construction.
