JM Verdict Included in Top 100 List

A JM verdict has been recognized as a ‘2017 Top Verdict’ in the state of New York. We are extremely proud of the hard work of our attorneys and legal team, but mostly we are happy to have helped our client through a very difficult time in her life.

We recognize U.S. law firms and attorneys who have obtained one of the highest jury verdicts, settlements, court or arbitration awards in the Nation or an individual State, in a particular area of law, and year. –Top Verdict

The $1,500,000 verdict recognized was awarded on behalf of our client who was injured when a tractor-trailer rear-ended the vehicle she was traveling in on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. She suffered serious injuries in the crash that aggravated a pre-existing condition and ultimately had to undergo surgery. The tractor-trailer company initially denied all responsibility for the crash. Trial Attorney Michael Feldman was able to achieve a substantial verdict in our client’s favor.

Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for insurance agencies to initially deny claims after car accidents/slip and falls/and other events that lead to serious injury. Injured individuals have turned to Jacoby & Meyers to help navigate the insurance-claim process for more than 40 years. We are proud to say our injury attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP have decades of experience not only representing injured individuals, but also ensuring their voices are heard. Due to the high quality of our legal services and the countless successful personal injury lawsuits we’ve handled for our clients, Jacoby & Meyers, LLP is one of the most recognized personal injury law firms in the United States.

Other recent settlements included:

  • $8.3 Million dollar settlement awarded due to cerebral palsy caused by medical malpractice.
  • $3.5 Million dollar settlement awarded to a New Jersey worker injured on the job.
  • $525,000 settlement for a pedestrian struck by a distracted driver in Suffolk County.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
