After years of handling claims for the insurance industry, Mike Hancock founded Hancock Injury Attorneys in 1996 with a clear understanding of the insurance industry and insider knowledge on how to obtain the best results for clients. The firm serves clients throughout Tampa, Florida and surrounding communities, helping injury victims get back their lives after accidents involving wrongful death, auto accidents, and slip-and-fall injury cases.
Hancock Injury Attorneys makes several promises to its clients, including the following:
The free, confidential case evaluation and consultation consists of potential clients speaking with one of Hancock Injury Attorneys’. Clients have the choice to talk either on the phone or in-person and ask any questions they have. The consultation includes an assessment of the situation and discussion of legal rights.
However, people are under no obligation to hire Hancock Injury Attorneys, if they decide the law firm is not right for them. Additionally, an attorney will come to a client's home if they are unable to meet at the company office and attorneys can meet with a client after 5:00 p.m. and on weekends if necessary.
Hancock Injury Attorneys prides itself on providing its clients with quick results. According to the website, Mike Hancock defended a number of insurance companies such as Allstate, State Farm, and The Travelers, along with several other Fortune 500 companies and learned the insurance companies tricks-of-the-trade. Unfortunately, Hancock also experienced firsthand the delay tactics used to prolong cases.
Fortunately for clients, the company uses this experience to keep the pressure on the insurance companies (and insurance defense attorneys) to close the case within a reasonable amount of time.
The law firm also boasts a high staffing ratio — meaning every case Hancock Injury Attorneys takes on gets immediate personal attention — so clients won’t have to worry about getting time off work, losing pay, or incurring medical bills.
Lastly, one of the reasons that may result in Hancock Injury Attorneys getting the job done in the shortest amount of time possible is the fact that the law firm doesn’t get paid until their client does. One-hundred percent of its cases are taken on a contingency fee, which is an agreement where the lawyer does not collect a fee unless the client wins the case. Hancock Injury Attorneys never takes any upfront fees or retainers, giving the company incentive to win and close the case quickly.
Hancock Injury Attorneys isn’t just dedicated to helping its clients; it is committed to supporting the community and giving back to the area its employees live and work in. That’s why the company started its 1% for Good campaign. The campaign consists of Hancock Injury Attorneys donating 1 percent of all its revenue to local organizations.
Upholding its promise to helping everyone in the community, the law firm even offers a scholarship to students who are not only in school but working a part-time job. The scholarship awards $1,000 annually.
