Negligence Actions

Over the years, the Law Offices of McGowan and Clarke have handled negligence claims in many forms, including general negligence, injuries caused by another person, products, negligent construction, and medical malpractice to name a few.


In Florida, negligence requires a duty to another person, a subsequent breach of that duty, evidence that the negligent party's actions were the actual and/or the proximate cause of the damage suffered. If negligent conduct can be established, the victim of the negligence may be entitled to damages under the law. This recovery can come from either the negligent party's insurance company or the party itself.


If you believe you or a loved one or business has been the victim of negligence or if you have been accused of negligent conduct, you need a Law Firm with the experience necessary to represent you interests through the legal system. We have the experience to settle your claim out of court, saving you time and expense, but we are also skilled litigators that will represent you in the courtroom if a settlement is not the best course of action.


At the Law Offices of McGowan and Clarke, we take the time necessary to analyze you case from every conceivable action and present you with the information you need to make the best decision for you and your family. We also represent businesses that have been accused of negligent conduct, resolving issues that not only affect the business owner but all of the business' employees.
