Pedestrian Accidents Lawyers In Gainesville
Were you or a loved one struck by vehicle while walking, jogging or running?
If so, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. An accident between a pedestrian and a vehicle is usually a very traumatic event. To make matters worse, the victim is often dazed or confused by what has happened and may or may not have the presence of mind to determine the extent of their injuries. While most victims are fortunate enough to recover, the injuries sustained after contact with a moving vehicle can be life-altering. To protect your rights, it is vital to seek legal counsel without delay. Only your personal injury lawyer can advise you as to the liability of the others, and be entrusted to accurately document the details of the accident before important pieces of evidence begin to fade.

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!
