Trusted Guidance Through Difficult Legal Situations

Injuries sustained at birth can be life-changing. I am attorney James P. Leonard, and I have worked with clients throughout southern Illinois and Missouri for more than 40 years. Rated as an AV Preeminent* lawyer by Martindale-Hubbell, I have been recognized by my colleagues as being reliable, professional and honest. I am here to advocate for those who need it.

Common Examples Of Birth Injuries

Giving birth is one of the most stressful times in any parent’s life. When so many things can go wrong, we put our trust in the hands of the medical professionals around us. When mistakes are made, it can leave someone you love in a tremendous amount of pain. I am here to help you hold the negligent party accountable. I have experience handling all types of cases, including those related to the following types of injuries:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Hypoxic brain injuries
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Infant death
  • Fractures
  • Oxygen deprivation

I fight tirelessly to represent injured victims. I understand how stressful these cases can be. This is why I take a hands-on approach. I thoroughly investigate a claim, provide you with the answers you need and discuss potential solutions as we move forward. I also anticipate any roadblocks we might run into and suggest ways around them. Other law firms in the area have referred me to their clients as they know I can handle the most complex cases.
