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.

Testimonials
★★★★★
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

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
