Situated around 170 miles southwest of the city of Chicago, Tazewell county is the location of 21 nursing homes, the majority of which are centered in the towns of East Peoria, Morton, and Pekin. The attorneys of Levin & Perconti proudly serve families and individuals across the greater Illinois area in every type of nursing home abuse, neglect, and negligence case, including many suits against various nursing and extended care facilities in Tazewell County.

Founded by pioneering nursing home attorneys Steve Levin and John Perconti, our firm has been providing premiere representation to the people of Illinois since 1992. In the twenty five years since our firm opened its doors we have recovered more than $660 million for clients who have suffered from acts of medical malpractice, personal injury, and wrongful deaths. The experienced lawyers at Levin & Perconti have a reputation for outstanding representation in nursing home and assisted living facility cases, and many other firms throughout Illinois recommend Levin & Perconti to their clients who need excellent representation in matters relating to nursing home injuries and deaths. It is also well known among Illinois defense attorneys, nursing home owners, and insurance agencies that our firm refuses to settle a case for anything less than its fair and reasonable value.

Selecting an attorney or law firm to represent you in a lawsuit can be a daunting task for people that do not have legal experience, but it does not have to be. During your selection process, it is important that you choose a firm with a proven record of success in litigating against Illinois nursing homes and extended care facilities, and that you select a law firm that has previously handled cases that are similar to your situation. Every legal situation is unique, but by selecting a law firm that has experience with nursing home litigation, and the resources that are required to successfully litigate complex matters you can help to ensure results which will provide you with the full value that represents fair compensation for the damages caused to you or your loved one.

If you have a friend or loved one who is in residence in a nursing home or assisted living facility, it is important that you learn how to identify the signs of nursing home abuse or neglect so you will be able to tell when intervention is needed. These signs are fairly varied, but some of the more common ones include:

  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss
  • Injuries caused by falls
  • Poor hygiene or a disheveled appearance
  • Unclean conditions
  • Bed sores
  • Unexplained cuts, bumps or bruises
  • Sprains and/or broken bones
  • Unexplained changes in mood or outlook
  • Uncharacteristic depression
  • Changes in activities or schedules on the part of the resident

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

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
