Zephyrhills is more than just the namesake for the bottled water company. It is a great community with a rich history. However, even in the best suburban areas, accidents happen and people can get hurt. From car accidents to dog bites, danger can be lurking around any corner and can change your life in an instant.
At Hancock Injury Attorneys, we understand what you are going through. The lost time from work, doctor’s visits, and physical pain take their toll. However, you don’t have to go through this alone.
When accidents happen, victims rarely directly sue the individual who was at fault. Rather, the at-fault entity’s insurance company is responsible for paying the bill. The insurance company is in the business of paying as little on claims as possible and has a thick book of tricks to diminish the value of your claim. We can take on the insurance company and give you peace of mind so you can focus on what’s important—getting back to full health.

What to Do if You are Injured in an Accident in Zephyrhills
It can be confusing figuring out what to do after you’ve been in an accident. Of course, the first thing is to focus on your immediate medical needs to make sure you have the best chance of recovery. After that, you should talk to an attorney who does know what to do.
Don’t speak to anyone from the insurance company until you have had your rights explained to you. They may seem nice and like they want to help, but ultimately they work for the insurance company, and their job is to pay you as little as possible.
Zephyrhills Personal Injury Attorney FAQ
What if the driver of the other car that hit me is uninsured?
Whether driving in Zephyrhills or anywhere in Florida, every driver is supposed to carry auto insurance. However, sometimes that doesn’t happen, and the victim could get left with injuries and a huge pile of bills. At Hancock Injury Attorneys, we will look under every rock and at every page of your insurance policy to see if there is any coverage for your injuries. We work hard to get compensation for those injured through someone else’s’ negligence.
Do I have to come to an office to start my claim?
At Hancock Injury Attorneys we understand that you might not want to or are unable to come to our office, so we have a virtual consultation option where you can talk to an attorney on a video call. Using applications like Zoom Meeting and Facetime, we can speak with you about your case and answer your questions just as if you were here in our office. Call us today or contact us online to set up private, secure virtual consultation.
The other driver’s insurance is saying I’m at fault, but I’m not, what do I do?
Proving that you didn’t do something can be tough, however, at Hancock Injury Attorneys, that’s our job. Florida law says that when a driver fails to use the legally required level of due care, then he or she has to pay for all those injured in the crash.
We know how to deal with the insurance companies and how to set the record straight so you can get compensated for your injuries under the law.
