McHenry County

Because McHenry County is just 60 miles northwest of Chicago, we frequently serve families and individuals from this area in cases against nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.  Our founding partners, Steve Levin and John Perconti, started the firm in 1992, and we have since grown to become a leader in nursing home litigation in Illinois. Many fellow attorneys from all over the state rely on us to handle all of their clients' nursing home cases because they know about our frequent success in these cases. 

We earned this reputation by delivering outstanding results to our clients.  Our lawyers have the medical and legal knowledge needed to tackle even the most complex nursing home matters.  We are well-respected by our adversaries because they know we will never settle a case for less than full compensation for our clients.

We face a statewide epidemic of poor care and abuse in Illinois nursing homes. Our lawyers have seen countless examples of vulnerable residents who are injured or killed because facilities are lacking the necessary staff and resources to properly care for residents.  If you have a loved one in a nursing home, you should understand the signs and symptoms of nursing home negligence and take action immediately if you suspect that a friend or family member is receiving improper care.  Some of the most common signs of negligence include:
  • frequent falls
  • bed sores
  • bruises, scrapes, broken bones
  • withdrawn personality
  • weight loss
  • dehydration
  • infections
  • mishandling of breathing tubes or gastro tubes
  • prescription administration mistakes
  • medication errors
These signs should never be ignored, and it is important to contact us if you believe that your loved one has fallen victim to abuse or neglect.  There are statutes of limitations in Illinois nursing home cases, so it is important to act early to protect your rights.  

Our lawyers are available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you have.  We offer free consultations, so there is no risk in calling us for a case evaluation.  If we accept your case, you will only pay us if we recover compensation for you.  Feel free to call us at 312-332-2872 or complete our online contact form and a lawyer will call you back.  You may also submit your contact information and a case summary to our website chat operators and one of our attorneys will call you back.
