Gainesville Medical Product Liability Lawyers
Were you surprised by a medical device failure or product recall?
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, design flaws, questionable test results, shortcuts in the manufacturing process and failing to warn unsuspecting doctors or patients are faults that can lead to tragic results. It's hard to believe that in today's world of "checks and balances" that companies still become so anxious to get their product to market that they simply ignore potential problems or dangers. But, they do. Thus, the purpose of products liability laws are to ensure that the costs of injuries or damages resulting from a defective product are borne by the manufacturer or sellers who placed the product or failed to adequately warn the consumer about the product's potential dangers.

I was referred to Mr. Mercadante by a friend after being rear-ended in 12/12. After meeting with Mr. Mercadante and his associates/staff I was able to turn all insurance paperwork and decisions over to their office. I was treated with kindness, care and was always able to talk to someone when needed. Becasue they did such a great job all I had to do was work on getting better. I would recommend this office to anyone needing to file a personal injury case. Mr. Mercadante was able to get me a fair settlement and I WOULD NOT hesitate to use this office again. Check them out. I am sure that you will be just as satisfied. The entire staff goes above and beyond. Thank you all!!
