"I honestly could not have asked for more" 5-Star Reviews From Our Tacoma Clients

I worked with Cole Douglas for, what was for me, a complex and emotional lawsuit. I was completely new to the legal world and coming into it with a series of injuries from a crash. Cole was incredible. I honestly could not have asked for more. On top of his exemplary legal representation, he supported me emotionally and was always very kind, respectful, and held space for my evolving feelings. Because of his work, I was able to receive the maximum amount allowed in my lawsuit, which was an incredible relief. He was timely, communicative, and professional. I would absolutely hire Cole again, and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Cole and Lauren were phenomenal attorneys to have represent me. I couldn’t say one bad thing about them. They helped me on a case that was very personal and hard to deal with, and I honestly couldn’t imagine not having them with me through the process, or going through it with anyone other than them. Not only were they highly professional and successful with my case, they also were caring,  and allowed me to feel like I could talk or tell them anything without feeling embarrassed, or that I going be judged. They were always quick to answer any questions that I had, and they always kept me up to date on everything that was going on with my case.

The impact of a car accident reaches far beyond the collision. Property damage such as destroyed cars can greatly impact your finances. Vehicles are expensive to replace. Additionally, not having reliable transportation can impact your wages or job opportunities.

Mr. Douglas
If you need a Tacoma car accident lawyer, Mr. Cochran and Mr. Douglas may be able to help with your case. We offer free consultations and even free parking too, so that you do not have to stress about cost.

What Happens If the Other Driver Does Not Have Insurance?

In some cases, it's possible that the other driver responsible for the accident does not have insurance.

This is illegal in Washington, and can even lead to suspension of a drivers' license, but it still happens.

Despite this obstacle, you can still seek compensation from your own insurance provider. The process simply looks a bit different — and our car accident lawyers are equipped to handle it.

In the Event of a Hit and Run You Need a Strong Car Accident Lawyer

Experiencing a car accident can be traumatic, stressful, and expensive, even if the other driver accepts responsibility. In some cases, especially if drugs or alcohol are involved, a driver who has caused an accident may leave the scene.

In the past, it was often harder to find the guilty party after they abandoned an accident. Now, thanks to cell phone cameras, traffic video, and even GPS location, responsible drivers can have a substantial amount of evidence against them.

You won't be alone either. The car accident lawyers at Cochran Douglas will sift through the facts, even possibly using experts to discover new evidence.

The sooner you act, the easier it is to build a strong case. We're here when and where you need us — so reach out today.

I am so grateful to have had Cole Douglas and Loren Cochran in my corner on more than one occasion. They patiently listened to the sensitive, and often awkward, details of my stories and I always felt heard and never judged. I was new to all of this, and they were always willing to answer any of my questions and they explained the legal process to me in detail and kept me updated throughout the process. I was always treated with respect and kindness. I will always look to them for any future legal advice and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs assistance.

I would highly recommend this firm to anyone looking for legal guidance and representation. My husband and I had no idea where to start when we were involved in a car crash that was not our fault. Cole and Loren were professional and very responsive. They left us feeling much more comfortable with our case. They always had our best interest at hand and we were thrilled with the outcome! They made a very unfortunate and scary situation much more bearable. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends.
