With more than 37 years of experience as a trial attorney, William (Bill) S. Jacobson has a reputation for providing compassionate representation to the families of birth injury victims.
Bill Jacobson devotes his legal practice at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy to helping the victims of catastrophic injuries with an emphasis on birth trauma and medical malpractice claims.
Bill is a member of the Birth Trauma Litigation Group, a national organization of attorneys devoted to representing families of children who suffered brain injury around the time of birth. He has published an article in the Journal of The Birth Trauma Litigation Group regarding the cross-examination of defense experts in birth injury cases.
He has written on a variety of topics in the area of medical malpractice, including deposition technique and adult, obstetrical, and pediatric malpractice claims. He has also lectured to attorneys on both local and state levels in the area of medical malpractice, with particular interest in obstetrical claims.
In 2013, he lectured the medical malpractice section at the annual meeting of the Ohio Association of Justice on the calculation of economic loss in catastrophic injury cases. He also lectured at the Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys on the specifics of a case he successfully argued on behalf of a birth-injured baby. The favorable verdict in the case included one of the largest restitutions granted in the region in several years.
Since 2006, Bill has been selected each year for inclusion in Ohio Super Lawyers®. Attorneys are chosen for inclusion by their peers and the independent research of Law & Politics Media and represent the top five percent of lawyers in their state.
Bill was included in the 2015 Best Lawyers list as one of the top 13 Cleveland lawyers in the medical malpractice (Plaintiff’s) section.
Bill also served as co-chair for the annual Risk Management Seminar of one of the state’s largest hospitals. The seminar was attended by hundreds of physicians who share the common goal of eliminating medical errors.
“I appreciated the commitment Mr. Jacobson invested in my case. I was moved by the amount of research, compilation, interviewing and maintenance of deadlines and contact Mr. Jacobson, and his staff, had to perform. I never had a moment of doubt that my case was being handled with the great diligence. I hope I never need the services of Mr. Jacobson and his staff again, yet I am confident if it does come to pass, I would receive the same stellar treatment from Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy.”
