We trust nursing homes and assisted living facilities with our loved ones; in fact, many of us have no choice, especially if our elderly family members are suffering from a particular illness and have specific medical needs that must be provided 24 hours a day.

However, it seems like every day, there are stories captured on the news featuring innocent residents being abused or neglected in these facilities. Many of the stories capture alarmingly high statistics concerning rates of bedsores suffered by these residents, for example; others describe financial exploitation by those closest to them every day.

If you suspect that a loved one is being neglected or abused, it is crucial that you look into contacting local authorities, and potentially an experienced nursing home attorney to obtain guidance and advice. Levin & Perconti is dedicated to representing victims of nursing home abuse and/or neglect.

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. Kathy and Ron

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
