Car Accidents, Truck Accidents, Motorcycle Accidents, Bicycle Accidents, Defective Products, Slip & Fall Accidents, Construction Accidents, Wrongful Death
Wrongful Death

Wrongful death as a legal term is a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. For example, deaths caused by drunk driving, the manufacture of a defective or dangerous product, the construction of an unsound structure or building, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as "wrongful deaths."

Car and Vehicle Accidents

Every time a driver gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, he or she is accepting responsibility for the safety of everyone else on the road. Accidents can and do happen. But if a driver's negligent behavior or careless actions lead to the personal injury or death of another party, that driver must be held accountable.

Car Crashes, Motorcycle Accidents, Train & Railroad Accidents, Pedestrian Accidents, Bus Accidents, Boating Accidents, Aviation Accidents
Semi-Truck Accidents

Injuries suffered as a result of truck accidents can be severe and sometimes deadly due to the sheer size of many semi-trucks and tractor-trailers. As a result, it is important to take action to recover compensation for the harms caused. If you are injured in a truck accident you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries including compensation for lost wages, hospital bills, and pain and suffering.

Product Liability

Products liability is an area of personal injury law that focuses on dangerous and defective products. Our Chicago personal injury attorneys represent injured victims throughout Illinois area in matters against corporations or manufacturers who have sold or manufactured unsafe products to consumers.

Jones Act and Maritime Law

The Jones Act is a law enacted by Congress that provides protection to persons who are injured while working as a member of the crew of a ship or vessel. The Jones Act applies to inland river workers as well as offshore workers who work on a jackup rig, semi-submersible ship or rig, barge, drill ship, tug/towboat, crew boat, drill ship, dredge, floating crane, tanker, cargo ship, fishing vessel, chemical ship, research vessel, construction barge, lay barge, motorized platform, diving vessel, cruise ship, recreational boat or other floating/movable structures.

Construction Accidents

Common injuries include injuries to the neck, back, eyes, broken bones, and sometimes even death. These injuries are often suffered from falls, electrocution, and being struck by objects. Injuries suffered at construction sites can be severe, life altering, and life threatening. Special laws are in place to protect the health and safety of construction workers. Unfortunately, often times these laws are not followed.

Margaret, Daisy and Bryan. This magnificent cohesive team led by Margaret represented us for my mom's nursing home wrongful death case. They were most patient and responded timely to many questions throughout the entire process. All demonstrated professionalism and extensive knowledge of case and state laws. Their in-depth investigative work uncovered details which were unknown to us and yet sadly confirmed our suspicions. We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
