Overview

Content is provided by the firm.

Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek is a personal injury law firm in Midtown Manhattan. Our personal injury lawyers also take cases in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and throughout the rest of New York. Our injury lawyers assist injured clients throughout New York City and the surrounding areas. The partners at our firm originally came from the largest, most experienced, and most profitable law firms in New York. Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. was formed because we wanted to provide more personal attention to clients – something that could not be done at larger firms – while still obtaining large settlements and judgments. We strive to always provide aggressive legal assistance while supporting our clients after being injured in a serious accident.

While most cases do settle, our seasoned trial attorneys prepare every case as if it will proceed to trial. HKD has the resources and experience to try any case and win. Whether you were injured in a car accident, workplace accident, MTA accident claims, truck accident, slip and fall accident, or another personal injury matter, our attorneys will fight for you to win. Our attorneys are especially experienced with construction accidents, such as dangerous job sites, injuries from falling objects, crane accidents, and scaffold accidents.

We get involved in a client’s case as soon as possible. In personal injury claims, insurance adjusters act quickly, hoping for a speedy settlement. Usually, these are low-ball offers made in the company’s best interests – not yours. Prompt action from an experienced attorney will ensure you are protected and that every detail of your accident is investigated.

Procrastination can lose a lawsuit, but at Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., we work on a contingency fee basis to reduce your risk. You are not responsible for any initial payment or costs during litigation, and all initial consultations are free. We only recover a fee upon the successful conclusion of your case.

With decades of experience and hundreds of millions of dollars recovered, if you or a loved one is suffering, Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. is ready to help. We can meet by appointment at our New York office, at home, or in the hospital. An attorney at our firm is available to assist you 24 hours a day, and seven days a week.
