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:

If you lost a loved one or suffered severe injuries due to a dangerous drug, defending your rights is going to be an uphill battle.

In October of 2014 I was riding my motorcycle when a truck pulled out in front of me. After months of dealing with a lackluster attorney I was referred to Gerald (Gerry) Schackow at Schackow & Mercadante. I felt welcomed and was treated very well throughout the entire process. Gerry was able to close my settlement for a larger sum than I had expected and was able to do so in less than 5 weeks from the day I first contacted him. Dealing with insurance after an accident is not easy but the folks at Schackow & Mercadante will treat you well and explain your options in a clear and concise manner. Very appreciative of the professionalism and courtesy of this office and would recommend that anyone use their services.
