Champaign County, Illinois

Champaign County is located in central Illinois and is the tenth largest county in the state. Located just two hours south of Chicasgo, some of the major cities in the county include the City of Champaign, Urbana, and Rantoul.  Champaign County is also home to the University of Illinois.

For decades, the Illinois injury attorneys at Levin & Perconti have helped seriously injured individuals and families from Champaign County fight for justice.  We represent clients in all types of personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice matters, including cases involving car accidents, workplace accidents, premises liability, injuries caused by defective products and medical devices, preventable medical mistakes and birth injuries, etc.

We are also proud to represent families if a nursing home's negligence causes a resident to suffer serious injury or even death.  Our Illinois nursing home neglect attorneys understand the important role our justice system plays in the to fight to protect the rights of nursing home residents throughout the state, especially as our population ages and more Champaign County residents enter into long-term care facilities. Many instances of neglect and abuse are the result of short-staffing because some nursing home owners choose to put profits before people.

Nursing home abuse and neglect comes in many forms.  Residents can develop deep and painful pressure sores when nursing home staff fail to turn or reposition them on a regular basis.  Sometimes residents fall because they are not properly monitored by staff.  Or a resident may suffer dehydration or malnutrition because they are not receiving proper food or liquids.  No matter what type of Illinois nursing home lawsuit it may be, our attorneys have the experience, resources and skills to help families seek justice if a resident is seriously injured or dies as a result of negligence or malpractice.

Levin and Perconti was always there when we needed them and very quick to answer any questions. We are happy to say that Ashley Herschberger was very professional, informative, kind, and prompt when it came to our case. She was always there if we had a concern or a question. We would recommend Ashley and the law firm, Levin and Perconti, to anyone else. We would also come back with another case of our own if ever needed. The Gonzalez Family

Our deepest appreciation to the law firm of Levin & Perconti, and in particular to Margaret Battersby Black, in the handling of the lawsuit we field n behalf of our sister who sustained life-threatening injuries as a nursing home resident. Margaret’s representation, guidance, and professionalism gave us the sense that we could put our trust in Levin & Perconti and the final outcome proved that to be true. D.G., Nursing Home Client

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
