For over 25 years, Hancock Injury Attorneys has been dedicated to serving Tampa Bay by protecting our community and making it a safer place to live. We do this by holding large insurance corporations accountable on behalf of our clients, many of whom have suffered serious injuries due to the negligence of others. These include traumatic brain injuries and permanent injuries to spinal cords, shoulders, or knees. Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality legal services to our clients as they endure some of the most difficult times in their lives. That’s why we say, “You Focus on Getting Better, We Take Care of Everything Else.”
In an effort to extend the idea of making safer communities, Hancock Injury Attorneys strives to encourage students to improve themselves by going to college and furthering their education. With better educational opportunities, these student changemakers will in turn make their communities a better place.
We know that to get to the point where you can make a positive impact, it takes a huge amount of hard work.
