Construction Accidents

A History of Success in Construction Accident Cases

Pavalon & Gifford has earned a reputation as leaders in the field of construction accidents. That reputation is acknowledged in Chicago, Illinois, and throughout the country. For more than 30 years, our attorneys have stood up to get justice for victims of negligence on construction sites.

We Want To Make Your Case a Success

When you choose our law firm to handle your construction accident case, you can be confident that we know what to do to get results. We will dedicate ourselves to getting you fair compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and other expenses.

Construction accidents can create two types of victims: construction workers and nonworkers injured on or near a worksite. We have the experience to represent both in cases involving:

  • Scaffolding Falls
  • Crane Collapses
  • Falling Debris
  • Heavy Equipment Accidents

Most construction accidents involve either a person falling or something falling onto a person. These accidents typically can be traced back to a failure to use proper safety equipment. There are OSHA rules and regulations that construction companies must follow. If they fail to follow them, they should be held liable. We are here to see that they are.

We have the resources to work with leading investigators and experts who will help us get to the heart of the case. With their information and analysis, we will put together a case that is designed to optimize your results. We know the steps to take to make a difference for you.

Multimillion-Dollar Results in Construction Accident Cases

We have built a long list of noteworthy cases, including one involving a Spanish-speaking construction worker hurt while working on the deep tunnel storm runoff project in Chicago. Lack of appropriate safety measures led to his paralysis after he fell while climbing on cement reinforcement wire. The public authority, as well as two architectural design firms working with them, provided our client a settlement of more than $4 million.
