Personal Injury: An Overview
When you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, it is difficult to know what to do. That is why it is crucial that you put your trust in an experienced attorney. I am James P. Leonard, founder of the Law Office of James P. Leonard LLC. For more than 40 years, I have represented injured clients throughout Missouri and southern Illinois. Rated as an AV Preeminent* Lawyer by Martindale-Hubbell, I have built a reputation for helping those who need it most.
In These Cases, Experience Matters
After an accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Your next call should be to my firm. I gather all necessary evidence, examine your case and can provide you with potential solutions. I always aim to recover the maximum compensation. This can be used to cover medical bills, lost wages and rehabilitation treatment. Common examples of claims I handle include:
- Car accidents, which occur frequently due to our busy metro area
- Truck accidents, being in the Midwest means lots of cross-country traffic
- Brain injuries, whether it be a TBI or a concussion
- Wrongful death cases, when someone has suffered the ultimate price
- Slip-and-fall cases, due to a person’s carelessness and negligence
In these cases, we must show that the alleged party is responsible for your injuries. While it may seem like your case is obvious, it is not always easy. That is why it is important to have an educated, skilled attorney by your side. I will discuss all of your options and answer any questions you have along the way.
