We Provide Aggressive Legal Assistance

Sometimes small firms don’t have the resources and knowledge to negotiate with powerful insurance companies that try to pay victims as little as possible. With our big firm knowledge, we know how to utilize the legal process to force insurance companies to make a fair settlement offer. And, if they don’t, we have the resources to take them to court.

When you hire us, we will evaluate how much your claim is worth and then issue a strong demand for full compensation to the insurance company. If they refuse to negotiate fairly, we will file a personal injury lawsuit. At each step, the attorneys at Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek will protect your rights and make sure you are safeguarded against the insurance companies that will try to take advantage.

We Give All of Our Clients Personal Attention

The partners at Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. originally came from large, profitable New York personal injury firms. However, they didn’t feel like they were giving clients the personal attention they deserved. When they formed HKD, they wanted to be able to get to know clients on a deeper level – something that can’t be done at larger firms.

The legal team at HKD knows how to win large settlements and judgements, and they do so while addressing the real needs of the clients. We begin your case by listening to your story and planning to address all of your losses. By understanding how your injuries have really impacted your life, we can quickly put you back on the road to normalcy.

We Are Veteran Trial Lawyers

With experience at large law firms, our partners had the opportunity to see many different cases. While some personal injury attorneys rarely go to trial, HKD has experience in the courtroom. We have a reputation and track record as formidable adversaries for insurance companies and their lawyers.

You Might Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, as many as 95% of personal injury cases end in settlement and never go to trial. However, the insurance company will not take you seriously until you do prove that you’re not afraid to go to court.

The insurance company wants the easy way out. They will try to make you a low-ball offer to get rid of the claim. However, it will not likely cover all your losses. You should never take the insurance company’s initial offer.

Instead, you should file a lawsuit against the negligent party and their insurance company and hold them financially liable for all of your past and future damages. By filing a lawsuit, the insurance company will know you are willing to fight to get what you deserve. An insurance company may decide to negotiate before your lawsuit goes to trial.

You Need an Attorney Ready to Deal with the Lawsuit Process

Trial attorneys understand that the bureaucracy of the court process can get in the way of their client’s needs. The right attorney will know which documents to file to meet their client’s goals and work through the process.

The HKD legal team can help you with all the pre-trial motions, like discovery or continuances, that you’ll have to deal with during your lawsuit. Getting the right documents to the right places and getting the evidence to build a case conveys a strong message to the defense: we take your case seriously, and we won’t let them off the hook with less than you deserve.

Have a Lawyer Who’s Ready to Go to Trial

Although very few personal injury cases go to trial, we are ready for it if it does happen. We understand the court process, and we know the judges in our jurisdictions. We know the law and how to make it work for you in your case.

The defendant in your case is trying to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve after their negligence hurts you. We’ll fight for the money you need to recover and protect your family. We prepare every case like it’s going to trial so if we need to, we can fight for you in court.

We Will Get You The Maximum Compensation Possible

Many law firms will try to get you a quick settlement that barely covers your past expenses. Then, they will take a significant portion for their own fees and costs. However, at Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, we focus on getting you the maximum amount of compensation possible, even if that takes more time and effort.

We will evaluate all of your damages, including medical costs, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, property damages, disfigurement, physical limitations, pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of consortium, and more. Then, we will make sure the insurance company gives you money to cover everything in the past and for the future.

You Owe Us Nothing Unless You Win

We take away all the financial risks of a personal injury lawsuit. We will pay for all court filing fees, case costs, expert expenses, and other costs. You pay nothing upfront. If you don’t recover compensation, then you don’t owe us anything.

If you do win your case and get a settlement or favorable verdict, then you will pay us a percentage of your compensation as well as expenses that we paid upfront.
