Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Gainesville
Do you know how to determine liability following a catastrophic motorcycle crash?
If not, you may face difficult obstacles in seeking compensation for damages or injuries. No doubt motorcycles are a lot of fun to ride and they can save money at the gas pump, too. But according to data provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, sunny states like Florida are more apt to have a higher annual rate of motorcycle accidents. To make matters worse, both law enforcement and insurance investigators are often quick to assume that you (the motorcyclist) was at fault. That means it can be imperative to find a legal advocate who will fight for your rights as a biker. Since injuries are not always immediately apparent, always seek the appropriate emergency medical attention and seek the advice of legal counsel without delay.
At Schackow & Mercadante, our lawyers work with experts to identify the actual cause for the motorcycle crash to include:
- Motorist Negligence
- Manufacturing Errors
- Failed Safety Products
- Unsafe Road Conditions
- Reckless or Aggressive Driving
- Defective Motorcycle Parts

Even though you may have taken all the recommended safety precautions, rarely will you and your passenger emerge unscathed. Since motorcycle accident cases invariably involve complex legal issues and multiple factors can contribute to the cause, determining all sources of liability can be tricky. Any bike crash must be thoroughly investigated and reconstructed to determine how motorist negligence, a defective part, poor manufacturer's design or hazardous road conditions may have resulted in a motorcyclist's personal injuries or death.

From the very first phone call after my accident to the final settlement, the attorneys at Schackow & Mercadante supported me and my family. Attorneys Gerald Schackow and Brian Schackow were helpful and professional in answering my many questions and guiding me through from the time I began treatment (exercises and stretches) all the way through to the surgery. When my wife and I went to mediation, Attorneys Schackow and Schackow, along with Marie, handled the proceedings, speaking on our behalf, and securing a settlement that enabled us to pay for all of our medical expenses with additional funds to compensate for the entire ordeal. They treated us with kindness and respect, much like we were part of the family. It was evident that they truly cared about us. We appreciate so much their knowledge and expertise to guide us through this stressful time in our family life.
