“All I can say is what a cool guy!” Last year I had a car insurance claim that I thought was over and done with. Last month I got a letter from my insurance company that I didn’t understand. I took the letter to Mike Hancock , who wrote a letter on my behalf to my insurance company requesting them to make sure that matter settles within my policy limits. I would have had no idea how to do this on my own or to even know what should have been done. Thank you Mike for helping to ease my mind.
During his first eight years of practice, Mr. Hancock was an attorney at two large insurance defense law firms representing, defending, and completing many jury trials for insurance companies including Allstate, State Farm, Geico, the Travelers, and several Fortune 500 companies in personal injury and wrongful death cases. During these eight years, not only was he trained by some of the best attorneys in the country, he was made privy to the insider secrets and inner workings of how insurance companies defend and evaluate personal injury claims. He was also taught the insurance company tactics used over and over again to minimize the amount paid, or to completely avoid paying legitimate personal injury claims made by otherwise responsible and kind people from our community.
In 1996, after representing insurance companies for eight years, and having gained an insider knowledge of the insurance industry, Mr. Hancock left a successful insurance defense firm and founded Hancock Injury Attorneys. Using his knowledge of insider secrets of the insurance industry, he has been devoted exclusively to representing the injured in personal injury and wrongful death cases.
