Chicago Birth Injury Lawyer Blog

A child’s birth is often the happiest time in his or her parents’ lives. No one can predict that something will go wrong, leading to a lifelong injury to the baby or mother, or even worse, death, but it actually happens at an alarming rate. When debilitating conditions are developed as the result of negligence during the birth process, sometimes litigation is appropriate to ensure that justice is done and your family is taken care of.

Head injuries that cause trauma to the brain can lead to severe brain damage, sometimes even leading to additional lifelong medical and emotional issues such as depression, migraines, trouble focusing, and other issues. Some of our brain injury blogs include:

Chicago Car Accident Lawyer Blog

Even if technology overall may be improving, the number of car accidents each year isn’t necessarily decreasing in response, in large part because distracted driving is a huge issue, especially for young drivers. In addition, as areas become more and more populated and more people are driving, more and more pedestrians and bicyclists can get injured and killed as well. And many more individuals are in danger of being injured due to regulations being too relaxed concerning helmet laws for motorcyclists, or regulations that pertain to airbags in cars, etc. Some of these topics are discussed below:

Illinois Truck Accident Lawyer Blog

Truck accidents are some of the most deadly on the road, often because of the relative size of the vehicles involved. In addition, although federal and state regulations require truck drivers to take breaks so as to reduce fatigue at the wheel, sometimes these regulations are violated and/or drivers still become fatigued and someone gets hurt as a result.

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
Mr. Levin, Mr. Perconti and the firm handled a medical malpractice suit for my family. During that time, my family and I suffered the loss of my mother. Mr. Levin and Mr. Peconti were more than just our lawyers. Words can’t really express our gratitude. My family and I will always be grateful for the compassion that they showed us. I want to thank you for what you did for my family, and for always being there for us. W.R., Medical Malpractice Client
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
