Losing a limb is traumatic. The devastation is compounded when the loss is a result of an accident, defective product, or medical malpractice. While no amount of money can replace the loss of a body part, a financial award or settlement can help compensate you for the mental, physical, and financial damages you have suffered. Since 1979, the lawyers at Jacoby and Meyers have been providing the experience and skill amputation victims in the New York City area need for successful claims.
