      William (Bill) S. 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.

      Bill has 26 years of experience as a trial attorney. 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 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.
