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.

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.
