Finding Compensation for Your Injuries in Evanston, Illinois

Last year, an Evanston police officer fled the scene of a hit-and-run, after severely injuring an Indiana motorist. According to an article in the Northwest Indiana newspaper The Times, the accident occurred just after midnight on August 23, 2015, where the forty-year-old officer allegedly turned across oncoming traffic into the path of the motorcycle. The Evanston native has been charged with “leaving the scene of the crime,” and was forced to take an unpaid administrative leave—pending his investigation.

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
