What You Need To Know About Medical Malpractice Cases

When seeking out medical care, we assume we are getting quality guidance. In situations where that does not happen, it is crucial that you hold these professionals accountable. I am James P. Leonard, and I founded the Law Office of James P. Leonard LLC with the intention of helping clients throughout southern Illinois and Missouri. Over the last four decades, I have helped countless victims.

Helping Clients With All Types Of Claims

One of the biggest parts of this practice area revolves around birth injuries. Within seconds, a minor mistake can be life-changing. From swelling of the head to nerve injury and paralysis, there are unfortunately countless ways a newborn can suffer. It is important to know that it is not only the doctors who can be held accountable but the nurses, hospital and other staff can also be held liable. My job, as your representative, is to make sure you and your loved one get justice.

I also work with clients who are dealing with other types of medical malpractice suits. Common examples include surgical errors, misdiagnoses or medication errors. It is important that you hold onto all documentation that you receive throughout your treatment. I use this in order to build a strong case against the negligent party. Having the right attorney advocate for you can make all the difference. I am rated as an AV Preeminent* lawyer by Martindale-Hubbell. This distinction means I am more than qualified to handle your complex claim.
