Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a term used to describe the negligence of a professional health care provider (such as doctors, hospitals, nursing homes, nurses, dentists, technicians, physician’s assistants, and any person who provides medical care) that results in the injury or death of an individual. Medical malpractice and hospital negligence occurs when a professional health care provider fails to adhere to accepted standards of care.

During his 20+ years of practice, Mr. Jacobs has handled hundreds of medical malpractice and hospital negligence cases both as a defense attorney and as a plaintiff's attorney. Mr. Jacobs previously worked as a defense attorney representing physicians and hospitals in medical malpractive cases. It is there that he learned the techniques, tactics and insight into defense strategy. In essence, he learned "how the other side thinks" in these types of cases.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death case is filed when the wrongful or negligent conduct of a person or corporation causes the death of another person. A wrongful death lawsuit is brought by a personal representative on behalf of the estate of the deceased person (i.e. surviving spouse and/or children) against the individuals or companies responsible for the person's death. Damages awarded in a wrongful death case are generally designed to compensate the family members of the deceased individual for their loss.


Mr. Jacobs has a long history of successfully representing families who have suffered the profound loss of a family member due to the wrongful conduct of another.

Premise Liability / Dog Bite

Premises liability generally refers to accidents that occur to an individual while on someone else’s property, whether it's a "slip and fall" or a dog bite. These landowners include homeowners, business owners and municipalities. Landowners are responsible for maintaining their property and facilities in a safe condition for their guests and tenants. This means keeping their premises in a safe condition so as to prevent accidents.

Mr. Jacobs has successfully represented numerous clients in a number of different types of premises liability cases.

Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing home negligence has become a major problem. The nursing home and extended care industry has become increasingly corporate and very strongly profit-driven. In many facilities, as a result, the focus has begun to shift away from providing exemplary care to patients and toward cost-cutting and the elimination of unnecessary expense. Too often, this means reductions in staff, both in number and in qualification, and patients are feeling the impact.
