Gainesville Defective Drug Attorneys
Did you know the FDA has streamlined the process for the release of new drugs?
If not, you may be among the many thousands of patients who have taken prescription drugs and suffered from serious side effects. When used as recommended or prescribed, consumers should be able to trust that the medications they are taking safe to use. Major pharmaceutical companies have enormous resources and make billions of dollars in profit but sometimes these corporate giants do not fully research the potential dangers of their products. Unfortunately for some, defective drugs can cause serious injury to patients who took them exactly as prescribed by their physician.
At Schackow & Mercadante, our Gainesville attorneys can provide guidance for those seeking restitution for dangerous drugs such as:

I have unfortunately had a few accidents and was lucky enough to have their great service. One was a car accident case being rear ended while stopped. I used a horrible chiro (instead of the one they recommended) who had been charging me interest on my unpaid bills, even though it was filed as a personal injury case and they knew they would get paid at the end of the case with the PIP money. My paralegal fought to get those unethical fees waived and lowered as much of the costs as possible. My other case was leaving UF and got hit walking on the cross walk with the right of way by someone making a right hand turn. I was lucky enough to only suffer a broken ankle. I had the same paralegal and she settled the case and had the pay out in only a couple of months with the max amount. This is a firm with the friendliest office staff around! I highly recommend them (in any bad situation)!
