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:

The Law Offices of Schackow & Mercadante, P.A. proudly serve the Central / North Florida residents of Gainesville, Lake City, Palatka and Ocala.
With all the choices for lawyers out there; among the ambulance chasers and people who make the process a fiendishly, and above all unpleasant experience, there is a shining gem of a law office. The lawyers and staff at Schackow & Mercadante are professional, courteous and above all treat you like the person you are. You are not a number, you are not just a paycheck, but you are a friend, a guest, dare I even say, a family member. The case I brought to them was a motor vehicle accident, I was wrongly accused of being the at fault party. Luckily enough, I have a dash-cam that captured it all. Not only did I go into court to contest the ticket (of which I was acquitted), but I had a whole TEAM of lawyers and law professionals to defend me. I felt like I had won before we even stepped into the courtroom. After this I had to become well again from the injuries I had sustained and recuperate the losses I was now beleaguered with. Once again, Mr. Schackow and his team rose to the occasion and after having surgery I am pain free for the first time since the accident and it is worth more to me than anything else and all returning to a sense of normalcy. The advice I give to potential clients is this. Stay positive, be patient, GET A DASHBOARD CAMERA it may save you and above all focus on becoming well, they have your case in hand and will make sure you get the best and fairest treatment. I would DEFINITELY hire them again.
