Macon County

Located about 180 miles south of Chicago, Macon County is home to 21 nursing homes, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health's nursing home website. Our firm represents clients throughout Illinois in cases of nursing home abuse and neglect, including many from Macon County and the surrounding areas. 

Steve Levin and John Perconti were among the first attorneys in Illinois to represent victims of nursing home abuse and neglect, and are regarded throughout the state as leaders in this area of practice. Our reputation has earned us the respect of our peers and adversaries alike, and many of our Downstate colleagues call upon us to handle all of their clients' nursing home cases.

A Statewide Epidemic of Poor Quality Care

Unfortunately, nursing home negligence is all too prevalent in Illinois.  Many facilities are understaffed, and therefore employees are stretched too thin to provide appropriate care to all residents. If you have a friend or loved one living in a nursing home or assisted living facility, you should know how to spot the symptoms of nursing home abuse and neglect to protect the safety and well-being of your loved ones.  Some of these signs and symptoms include:
  • falls
  • bed sores
  • malnutrition
  • dehydration
  • bruises, scratches or cuts
  • a sudden personality change
  • burns
  • medication errors
  • chemical or physical restraint
There are statutes of limitations for filing nursing home cases in Illinois. If you suspect that your loved one is being neglected or abused in a Macon County nursing home, you should take immediate action to protect your rights. 

Call us today to discuss your potential case with one of our attorneys.  All consultations are free and if we accept your case you will not pay us anything unless or until we recover compensation for you.  We are happy to talk with you about your options, and answer any questions you have.
