Accidents and injuries happen all around us, and yet what many individuals may not know is that they are often linked back to another person or entity that is responsible. For example, you were involved in a car accident, it is possible that another car was at fault because they weren’t paying attention to the road, or perhaps your own brakes failed you and you hit a freeway median? The possibilities of accidents and injuries can go on forever, and because of exactly this, our firm is committed to offering our community in New York the legal representation they deserve.
At Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, PC, we are a dedicated personal injury firm that has over 75 years of legal experience behind our doors. Personal injuries often happen as a result of the negligence or wrongful acts of another person or entity and over the years we have had the opportunity to help numerous clients receive the compensation that they deserved from their injury. After an injury it is likely that the family or individual will receive insurance help, though more often than not it comes nowhere close to the amount necessary for living. Personal injuries often lead to lost wages, medical bills, and sometimes even funeral expenses; and with our help we hope to see to it that you are able to receive what you actually deserve.
Our firm focus is on the people and the amount of money they receive for their injury. It is our hope that our clients after their painful injury or wrongful death, will be able to receive more than enough to live off of. When dealing with a personal injury case, many times the opposing party will want to work out a settlement as opposed to fighting in court and paying more fees. If we are unable to make the financial agreement that you feel you deserve, we are prepared and willing to take the case to trial.

With the many years of experience at our firm, HKD has had the opportunity to help clients fight a variety of personal injury cases. For example, burn injuries, dangerous drugs, explosions, elevator accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall injuries, wrongful death, auto accidents, and so many more.
Elevator accidents are not unheard of today as our society is forced to build up rather than out as we expand our cities. For example, injuries can occur as a result of door malfunctions, or if the cables malfunction and send the elevator plummeting multiple floors, serious injuries can occur. There are other sorts of injures that can result of premises liabilities such as a cities failure to maintain sidewalks and roads. Large bumps and cracks in the road can cause children and adults to incur serious injuries if they don’t notice the unsafe roads in front of them. The possibilities of these liabilities are endless, which is why if you believe that your injury was caused as an act of negligence on behalf of a person or entity, it is imperative to contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your case.
Dangerous drugs are another common form of personal injury, for example this can include a medical implant malfunction or danger or a drug that was placed on the market that has caused you to develop new illnesses or made the matters worse. Many times when dealing with pharmaceutical drugs, it often goes back to the company manufacturing the drug and their failure to warn consumers and doctors of all of the risks or their lack of cleanliness within the facility, etc. If you are a victim, don’t wait another moment to take legal action against these individuals. Whether or not there is a class action lawsuit against the companies, contact your own personal lawyer to ensure that your specific needs are being properly represented.
Car accidents are another common cause of injuries, and sadly many deaths. One driver may be distracted by their cell phone; their children in the backseat, their food or radio and by taking their eyes off the road for one second can lead to a tragic collision. Distracted driving is one of the causes for accidents; another leading cause is when a drunk individual chooses to get behind the wheel, often leading to disastrous results.
