Personal Injury Law in New York
Also known as tort law, personal injury law applies when another person’s negligence or the purposeful actions of another cause harm to a person’s physical health, mental well-being, or even emotions. You have the right to sue the person or organization responsible for your injuries in civil court.
By filing a claim, all existing and future losses resulting from the accident can be compensated. The Pagan Law Firm’s seasoned personal injury lawyers can provide further information about your case in a free consultation.
Common Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Finding a New York attorney specializing in a certain area within the vast field of personal injury can be a daunting task for anyone looking for representation. The good news is that The Pagan Law Firm handles a wide range of personal injury cases, including the following:
Mistakes committed by a physician or other medical practitioner that result in injury or wrongful death are referred to as medical malpractice. In certain cases, it’s the fault of the nurse, doctor, or other members of the healthcare staff who caused the accident. Cases involving nursing home negligence and birth injuries are two common instances of medical malpractice.
Construction projects pose many threats to construction employees and the public. Many construction jobs need workers to move heavy objects, operate machines, or do difficult tasks at heights, which can put them in harm’s way. Common injuries in construction site accidents include burns, electrocutions, fractured bones, lacerations, and head and traumatic brain injuries.
Motor Vehicle Accident
Auto accidents are rising in the United States as more people take to the roads. Those hurt in a car accident may be entitled to compensation for their medical treatment and any property damage they’ve suffered.
Injuries at work can be unpleasant, but workers’ compensation benefits protect workers’ wallets from the financial implications of an accident. Your rights to workers’ compensation payments are protected if your company has coverage in place. The Pagan Law Firm is here to help if your benefits are denied.
The agony of losing loved ones—particularly when their demise could have been avoided—is unlike anything else. Our goal is to help you hold the negligent person accountable for their actions if you have lost a loved one due to their recklessness. You can’t undo the harm they’ve done, but seeking compensation can help you recoup your financial losses and go on with your life.
Determining Whether You Have a Personal Injury Claim
Personal injury claims in New York can be justified if all four of the following elements are present:
Duty of Care
Since people are generally expected to avoid harming others, this is the most straightforward component of the case to prove in most situations.
Breach of Duty of Care
To establish that the other side failed to fulfill this commitment, it is your responsibility to produce evidence to support your claim.
If the other party was negligent and you were injured, it’s not enough to say that you were hurt. Make sure you can prove a causal link.
Your injuries must have caused real, quantifiable losses for you to receive compensation.

Beginning The Road To Recovery From A Personal Injury
Being injured because of someone else’s negligence does not only hurt you, but your loved ones as well. In addition to your own pain and suffering, the financial strain of medical bills, lost wages, emotional stress and fatigue can put you and your family in a very difficult position.
We here at The Pagan Law Firm, P.C., know how hard it can be to pursue a fair compensation for your suffering and focus on recovering from your injuries. This is why we will focus on the details of the case for you, so you and your family can focus on recovering.
We Will Not Let Insurance Companies Take Advantage Of You
You might think that insurance companies are more than willing to pay you what you need to recover from your injury, but this is rarely the case. Like any other business, the goal of an insurance company is to earn as much money as possible. This means that they are looking to pay out the minimum amount possible. We know that the common strategy for insurance companies is to offer you a quick and small initial offer, hoping that you take the small amount, and drop the issue. Our lawyers will fight to earn you the maximum possible compensation for your injury.
