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 in a car accident on May 2, 2016 where I was rear ended at a traffic light. A family member referred me to Schackow & Mercadante, PA. From my experience I can say I was very pleased with the level of professionalism I received from Mr. Schackow and staff from the first visit. The staff was extremely polite and made me feel welcomed and confident in my decision on them handling my case. I was referred to a better Chiropractor that would benefit me and not just to receive my insurance money. Everything was handled properly and in a timely manner at which I was informed every step of the way throughout the process. Mr. Schackow and his staff took their time to explain, educate, and answer any questions I had which is incredible. They were able to get all my medical fees waived and lowered so I would receive a larger settlement. Any time I had questions Mr. Schackow's Legal Assistant, Michelle, made sure she was available and answered all my calls promptly, she was amazing. I highly recommend Schackow & Mercadante, PA for any automobile accident or personal injury case. The case was settled within a year and I received a settlement far beyond my expectations. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn?t do anything differently. Again excellent service and even better outcome so thanks again you all ROCK!
