Peoria County is located in Central Illinois, about three hours from our offices in Chicago. Since pioneer nursing home lawyers Steve Levin and John Perconti founded the firm in 1992, we have successfully resolved hundreds of nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuits in Illinois, including a number of cases against Peoria County nursing homes.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in a nursing home, let us help you. Call us at 877-374-1417 for a free consultation.

Since our firm's inception, we have recovered over $660 million in verdicts and settlements for clients. Our attorneys are well-known throughout Illinois for our work on behalf of injured nursing home residents and the families of those who have lost a loved one due to nursing home negligence. Opposing attorneys and insurance companies know our name and know that we will never settle a client's case for less than fair compensation.

We understand that families often do not know where to turn when a loved one is injured in a nursing home. It is important that you choose a firm that has experience handling cases like yours and one that has the resources needed to litigate complex nursing home matters.

  • Dehydration
  • Falls or fall injuries
  • Pressure sores
  • Cuts or bruises
  • Weight loss
  • Poor hygiene
  • Unclean or foul-smelling living conditions 
If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of negligence in a Peoria long-term care facility, take action immediately to protect your rights. In Illinois, there are time limitations for filing lawsuits against nursing homes.
