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.

When someone undergoes something so drastic like near death experience your mind is everywhere you don't know what to do or where to turn. I was thankful to have my dad suggest that I seek legal help from Schackow & Mercadante. Gerald & Michelle treated me like family they didn't look at me as a dollar sign they displayed acts of genuine compassion and concerns. I'm just blessed beyond belief to even have the pleasure of being a client that they represented. They even took the time and gave me advice after services that will help me throughout my journey in life. To top that off after the paperwork and completion of their job they did not shake my hand and say good luck instead they opened their warm and loving arms and gave me a sincere hug and wish nothing but the best for me! Now that's the kind of team you would want to receive service from it gets no better than that! I wish I could rate 10 stars instead of 5! Thank You Guys So Much! This Review Doesn't Even Show A Third Of My Appreciation! I Am Forever Grateful!
