Call 888-325-7167 For A Free No-Risk Consultation with one of our experienced Chicago Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Attorneys.

Steven M. Levin and John J. Perconti founded Levin & Perconti in 1992. For over twenty years, we have worked to establish a national reputation for our successful representation of catastrophically injured clients and the families of those wrongfully killed. Levin & Perconti has grown to employ 26 attorneys with over 150 years of combined experience as trial lawyers.

We are proud to have achieved over $520 million for clients, including numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements in all types of catastrophic personal injury or wrongful death type actions. In the area of medical malpractice, the firm has achieved notable victories in cases involving birth injuries, defective drugs and pharmaceutical products, obstetrical errors, surgical errors, and failure to diagnose cancer.

We are nationally recognized as a pioneers in litigating nursing home abuse, neglect and fraud lawsuits and are committed to improving the quality of nursing home care through litigation. This has resulted in the firm achieving substantial verdicts and settlements, as well as in the implementation of significant remedial measures designed to protect nursing home residents from future harm. We are highly experienced in nursing home abuse and neglect litigation and have the knowledge and resources necessary to successfully hold nursing homes accountable for substandard care and conduct.

Some of our most notable results for clients include:

G.N. V. UIC Hospital: $17.7 million medical malpractice settlement for a client who suffered significant brain damage due to nursing staff negligence.

S.H. V. Northwestern Memorial Hospital: $14 million record high verdict against a doctor and hospital for not following and ignoring abnormal chest X-ray results, which caused a substantial delay in the diagnosis of lung cancer.

K.M. V. City of Chicago: $10 million settlement for a 5-year-old boy who was run over by a City of Chicago Fire Department truck while playing in an open fire hydrant on the Fourth of July, resulting in the loss of his leg and half of his pelvis.

D.G. for M.G. V. Mario Yu, M.D. et al.: $7.62 million verdict against an HMO doctor who disregarded the mother's complaints of postpartum bleeding, which resulted in her bleeding to death.

E.P. V. American Tugs et al.: $7.5 million Illinois Record Jones Act settlement for a 37-year-old man who sustained serious neck and spinal cord injuries in an Illinois boat explosion. This settlement surpassed Levin & Perconti's previous Record Jones Act settlement of $4.5 million, set in 2007.

S.W. for S.W. V. Christ Hospital: $6.71 million verdict against a hospital because an inexperienced resident performed a vaginal delivery of a breech presentation (bottom first) resulting in shoulder dystocia and a crippling brachial plexus arm injury.

D.C. for Y.O. V. Advocate Lutheran General Hospital: $6.5 million birth injury settlement for a young girl who suffered a brain injury during birth, resulting in cerebral palsy, after physicians failed to timely perform a c-section.

R.C. V. Geils Farms et al.: $6.5 million settlement ($4.7 record Kane County wrongful death settlement) for the family of a 32-year-old woman who was killed when their pick-up truck was rear-ended by a semi-truck. Our client and his son both suffered significant personal injuries in the collision. The defendant truck driver was found to be under the influence of marijuana and operating an over-loaded, unsafe truck. In violation of federal regulations, the defendant truck owners failed to drug-screen or perform background checks on their drivers.

A.R. and A.R. and M.R. v. Marshway Limited Partner lawyership, Marshway, L.L.C. and CIG Management L.L.C.: $6.0 million settlement for the families of 6 children who died in a tragic apartment fire on Chicago's north side. Two other children sustained severe burns in the fire. The landlords of the building failed to have proper and working smoke detectors in violation of the Chicago Municipal Code and the children were not able to escape the building in time.

S.G. V. USA: $5.77 million Federal Tort Claims Act bench trial verdict by a federal judge for a woman who became paralyzed as a result of a Veterans Administration physician's failure to recognize worsening neurological symptoms and perform a necessary surgery to relieve spinal cord compression.

D.B. V. J.L. Adler Roofing et al.: $5.7 million settlement for a 27-year-old roofer in a workplace injury case who was paralyzed when he fell from a roof as a result of the general contractor's failure to provide appropriate safety devices.
