Medical mistakes can destroy lives. We help put them back together.

Behind each and every important medical malpractice case is a person whose life has been ruined. Injury or death to a loved one caused by medical malpractice may be one of the most difficult personal tragedies you will ever face.


Each year, medical errors cause more deaths than breast cancer, AIDS, and auto accidents combined!


If someone you love has suffered a serious injury or death due to medical malpractice, contact a New York City medical malpractice attorney at The Pagan Law Firm. Our firm is dedicated to helping victims of medical malpractice heal from the injustices that they have endured.

New York Medical Malpractice Explained

Medical malpractice is when a doctor or another medical professional - like a nurse or technician - does something wrong, doesn't do something he or she should have done, or failed to advise you of the risks and medical alternatives before proceeding with a medical procedure. It is not enough that your doctor or medical professional made a mistake. In order to make a claim for medical malpractice, you have to show that you suffered an injury from the doctor's mistake.


Most people come to us for help after they or someone they love has suffered a severe, disabling injury, or after a family member has tragically died because a doctor or other medical professional made a mistake. They want to know how this happened and they want justice for themselves or their loved one. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured due to a medical professional's negligence, contact our office today. The fact that you may have signed a "consent form" does not preclude you from suing a doctor for failing to provide you with the proper information.


Experience with Many Types of New York and New Jersey Medical Malpractice Cases

Many of the New York and New Jersey medical malpractice cases we have handled have been against the largest and "best" hospitals and health care providers in the area. Our New York medical malpractice lawyers have extensive experience handling the most difficult malpractice cases including:


  • Failure to Provide Informed Consent - Before a patient receives medical treatment, a doctor must notify them of the diagnosis, the purpose of the procedure, the potential risks and benefits, and any alternatives to the procedure. This must be presented to them in a language which they can understand and they must confirm that they understand the risks and benefits of their decisions.

  • Incorrect or Delayed Diagnosis - A failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can be extremely dangerous because your case is not only diagnosed incorrectly, but you also undergo treatment for something which you do not have, which may lead to even more problems.

  • Medication Errors - Medication errors can occur when a prescription is written wrong or when a pharmacist mistakenly provides you with the incorrect medication or dose.

  • Cancer - Many medical malpractice cases are due to the failure to properly diagnose cancer. Cancer misdiagnosis is very common in breast cancer, skin cancer, colon cancer and lung cancer.

  • Surgical Mistakes - Many things can go wrong during a surgery, but one of the most common errors is due to improper dosage of anesthesia. Anesthesia errors, as well as many other surgical mistakes, may occur in orthopedic surgery, bariatric surgery, gastric bypass, plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery, hernia surgery, and hysterectomy surgery.

  • Colon Surgery - Colon surgery is often performed due to an emergency situation, such as perforated diverticulitis or gastrointestinal perforation, where intestinal anastomosis may be necessary.

  • Preventable side effects from surgery - Surgery can leave the patient to suffer even further from many preventable side effects such as peritonitis, sepsis, rupture, charcot foot, extubation failure, paralysis injury, brain injury, or compartment syndrome.

  • Wrongful Death - The untimely death of a loved one, though never easy, can be especially hard when the death is due to a misdiagnosis or medical negligence.
