For over 20 years, Hancock Injury Attorneys has been dedicated to 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.
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. Both attorneys Mike and Claire Hancock worked part-time jobs throughout high school, college and law school to help pay for their education. Their work ethic helped them get to the place they are today, successfully fighting for justice for their clients.
