"The accident and injury attorneys at the Hanna Law Firm are committed to winning you the highest possible financial reward for your accident, and there are times this means going into litigation."
ABILENE, TX, September 19, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Hanna Law Firm announced today that clients dealing with personal injury situations should understand the reasons why and when a case should go into litigation, and they should not be afraid if a trial is necessary.
"The accident and injury attorneys at the Hanna Law Firm, P.C. are committed to winning you the highest possible financial reward for your accident, and there are times this means going into litigation," said Jon Hanna, managing attorney at the Hanna Law Firm, in West Texas.
Hanna recognizes that many people feel scared and uncertain after being injured in an accident, and they are especially apprehensive about the prospect of having to go to trial.
"Going to trial is the last resort in a personal injury case," he said. "Before litigation is considered, our firm will investigate what happened from every angle, track down the parties responsible for the accident, and calculate the full amount necessary to cover bills, pain and suffering, and other losses. The next step is to negotiate a fair settlement that covers the real cost of both economic and non-economic losses with the insurance companies and attorneys for the responsible parties."
Hanna notes that since insurance companies are out for profit, they attempt to pay out as little as possible. They often contact injured parties soon after an accident and make a lowball offer to settle a claim quickly. Accepting this offer prevents you from getting a fair settlement or receiving anything additional if injuries get worse in the future. Fortunately, once they know that there is an attorney on your side who is willing to go to trial, insurance company adjusters and their lawyers are likely take your case more seriously, negotiate accordingly, and come up with a legitimate offer for compensation.
Most personal injury cases are settled out of court through negotiations, and it is only in cases where negotiations for fair compensation break down that the personal injury lawyers at Hanna Law Firm will go on to litigation. Even after litigation starts, there is a good chance that a settlement will be reached before the conclusion of a trial.
If a trial is necessary, Hanna assures clients that their firm will handle all phases and legal hurdles involved. This includes gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses, filing all paperwork in a timely manner, going through the discovery process, proving responsible parties negligent, hiring expert witnesses to testify on your behalf, and presenting your case and making closing arguments to prove it. In the rare case that you do have to testify in court, your lawyers will coach you beforehand and ensure that you are fully prepared.
"You can count on us to update you regularly about the status of your claim, answer your questions, and always treat you with understanding and respect," he said.
