About Hancock Injury Attorneys

Tampa Personal Injury Attorneys

At Hancock Injury Attorneys we have helped our injured clients beat the insurance companies and recover what they deserve since 1996. In addition to over 30 years of experience in personal injury litigation, Attorney Mike Hancock has insider secrets from his background as a former insurance defense attorney to beat the insurance companies at their own game; we always stay one step ahead.

Yes, Hancock Injury Attorneys is not a big “advertising” firm that you hear about constantly, and we like it that way. This way we are able to give each and every single client a personalized experience and make sure they feel like they are a part of our family.

Why do we this? Because no one protects you more than family. We understand the importance of family and believe we aren’t just representing our clients, but our clients’ families as well. When you come in, you will meet with Attorney Mike Hancock; not a paralegal or assistant. He will be involved in every single part of your case. You should always feel welcome to call Attorney Mike Hancock but hopefully, you feel like you will not have to, as our goal is always to keep you updated to the fullest extent with the assistance of our experienced paralegals.

At Hancock Injury Attorneys, we only represent those injured by another’s negligence. This includes those injured in car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip or trip and falls, product liability accidents and those involved in a wrongful death accident or with a traumatic brain or spine injury. Following our promise to provide exceptional client care, we do not take any fees unless we win your case. We also will never take more money than our client for a case, even if that means reducing our fee.

Our connection with our community is important to us. Mike not only works in the Carrollwood community but also lives in the community and contributes his time to Carrollwood organizations. This includes the North Tampa Bar Association, the Carrollwood Civic Association and the Carrollwood Area Business Association.

Below are just a selection of the honors and awards Hancock Injury Attorneys have received. For more information on our individual lawyers Mike and Claire Hancock.

Our Client-Centered Approach

Our Vision

Show our community what exceptional client-care looks like.

Our Mission

To protect our community every day by providing exceptional legal representation. Using our core values of strength, intelligence and compassion, we seek to exceed expectations of our clients every day.

We know our client on a first-name basis – and our clients know us. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We will answer your questions, make recommendations and provide you with a free, confidential evaluation of your injury claim, all without obligation to use our legal services.

We believe in protecting our community. We make our community a safer place by holding those negligent accountable for the safety rules they break and the harms and losses they cause.

We are compassionate and caring. We have a family, too. When you contact us, Mike Hancock will personally speak with you on the phone or answer your questions by e-mail. After that, if you decide to proceed, you will personally meet with Mike to further discuss your claim. You will be listened to, your questions answered and we will and take as much time as necessary to answer them all.

We are smart. We know that we simply can’t bully our way into results by shouting “we are aggressive” or “we are tenacious.” Insurance companies and the attorneys they hire aren’t impressed with such advertising or slogans. Investigation is important. Preparation is necessary. Strategy is critical. Experience counts. With more than 40 years of combined experience on both sides of personal injury claims, Mike Hancock and Claire Hancock know how to successfully achieve justice in your personal injury, wrongful death and insurance claims.

We are strong. Our record of success is known throughout Florida. Our opponents know who we are and take us seriously. They know that we go into every case with the goal of achieving justice and holding the negligent parties and their insurance companies accountable for the harms and losses they inflict, and achieving nothing less than full compensation for our clients.
