A Record of Success in Plane Crash Cases
At Pavalon & Gifford, we have a long history of handling commercial and general airplane accident cases. While we have been a team for more than 30 years now, our involvement in these personal injury and wrongful death cases reaches back even further. In 1963, one of our lead attorneys successfully represented family members who lost loved ones in the high-profile case of the crash of Northwest Orient Flight 705. Since then, we have built a reputation for success in these cases in Chicago, Illinois, and throughout the country.
We Want To Get Positive Results for You
At our law firm, we believe in dedicating ourselves to every case we handle. Our commitment to you is that we will strive to achieve maximum compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and all other costs in your plane crash case.
Over the years, we have handled a wide range of plane crash cases. We have handled cases involving Air Force officers who lost their lives in plane crashes caused by poor maintenance and defective components. We have taken on cases involving negligence on the part of pilots or air traffic controllers.
In fact, our lawyers have seen some very unusual situations that involve negligence on planes, but not necessarily a crash. We have the ability to represent victims of mistreatment by airline staff, such as a case that involved the failure to properly address a patient's medical emergency that took place while a plane was stopped due to a mechanical problem.
Our team has the experience and the resources to get to the bottom of even the most complex aviation accident cases. We can bring in experts and investigators to help us build a legal strategy designed to get you the results you deserve.
Multimillion-Dollar Results in Airplane Accident Cases
We have handled many noteworthy cases over the years. One of our successes involved four young women who lost their lives in a midair collision of two private aircraft near Meigs Field. Our investigation revealed that the plane crash was the result of negligence on the part of the air traffic control service. We obtained a settlement of almost $3 million for the families of the victims.
