Providing Professional Legal Representation
The law firm of Hecht Kleeger & Damashek has more than 75 years of combined legal experience fighting for the rights of victims who were seriously injured. The New York City personal injury lawyers at our firm have a remarkable record of success in recovering high value settlements in all types of injury cases. In the last 12 years alone,
we have recovered more than $150 million in settlements for our clients. It is not just our dedication and knowledge that gives us the ability to secure large settlements for our clients and their families, but also our experience as trial attorneys.
When it comes to litigation, there is no substitute for real trial experience. An injury lawyer can understand every law in the book, but without experience in the field and in the courtroom, a professional's ability only goes so far. A New York City injury attorney's ability to deliver an argument in front of a courtroom, especially in high pressure situations, can prove to be one of the most beneficial skills. At our NYC law office, we strongly believe in fighting for what is right. We will fight to ensure that our clients obtain every penny that they need and deserve, and we won't stop fighting until this has happened.
When another party is negligent, reckless, or engages in wrongdoing, they can be held liable for any injuries or other damages sustained by the victim. Whether the case reaches a settlement prior to trial (through negotiation), or our litigation team needs to appear in court, we are highly committed to demanding fair and full compensation for our clients. At Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, we fight to protect the rights of innocent victims, and to obtain full cash value for their injuries, pain and suffering, as well as all medical and hospital costs, and any lost income from missed wages. Our aggressive litigation team has garnered high respect from insurance companies, their legal counsel and the judiciary. We welcome you to contact a New York City injury attorney at our office at your earliest convenience to discuss your particular case and how we can assist you.
Defining Your New York City Injury Case
A personal injury affects the victim physically and / or emotionally and is the result of another's behaviors or failure to act. Accidents that cause personal harm can be caused by negligence - the failure to provide reasonable care given the circumstances. It may also be caused by intentional wrongdoing, as in a case where a person attacks another with the intent to cause harm. When an individual experiences personal injury of any kind, it is important to discuss their legal options with a New York City personal injury lawyer.
This branch of the law falls under civil litigation. Although you are accusing someone for wrongdoing, their wrongdoing wasn’t necessarily a criminal action. In the United States, we operate under a statute of limitations. This protects people from being wrongfully accused. It is a limit of time, usually three years for personal injury, in which a victim can bring a claim against the party believed to be liable. In court, the defendant is not innocent until proven guilty; rather, they are responsible for proving their innocence just as the plaintiff is responsible for proving that the other party was at fault.
