What Is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury affects the brain, the spine, or the spinal cord. Spine and skull fractures often accompany these injuries. In many cases, catastrophic injuries result in permanent disability that affects the victim's capacity to work and perform everyday functions.

Car accidents and motorcycle accidents frequently cause catastrophic injuries, but the truth is that anything from a slip and fall accident to a sports injury can result in life-altering trauma. Whether your injuries resulted from a motorcycle accident, car accident, or any other incident caused by third-party negligence, we are ready to fight for you.

Cole Douglas helped me through a very stressful process, one which I would have bailed out several times if not for his ongoing support and reassurance.

I had never been through a personal injury claim, and wasn’t sure what to expect.

Cole guided me every step of the way; he, Ella, and Loren are an exceptional team, professional and sensitive to client’s needs.

The outcome far exceeded my expectations, I highly recommended this firm without hesitation.

We Go Toe-to-Toe With Insurance Companies and Defense Lawyers

Insurance companies and defense lawyers are notorious for doing all they can to minimize even the most catastrophic claim, and they often try to pin blame on the victim. After decades in practice, Cochran Douglas has the skill, know-how and resources to prove liability in injury cases. 

How Restitution Works in Washington

Since Washington is one of the few states that does not permit punitive damages, proving actual economic damages (as well as pain and suffering on the victim's part) is vital. These losses include medical costs, loss of income, emotional and psychological anguish, and compromised quality of life damages. When it can be proven that another party's negligent actions resulted in these losses, they can be held legally responsible for paying compensation.

To receive full, fair compensation, victims need the help of a knowledgeable, aggressive personal injury attorney. You can depend on our attorneys to bring the truth to light so that desperate legal defense strategies cannot keep you from collecting restitution. We will consult experts in order to calculate not only what your losses have cost you to date, but also what they will cost you for the rest of your life. We will settle for nothing less than what you truly need in order to move on with your life.

We Offer Free Consultations So You Have Nothing to Lose

We believe that you deserve to choose the legal team that is best for you. Our consultations are free of cost and obligation, empowering you to choose a team of personal injury lawyers that you are truly happy with. Speaking with our attorneys will not cost you a dime.

At Cochran Douglas, our catastrophic injury lawyers also work on a contingency fee basis. That means that you won't pay any legal fees unless we win your case.

You only have three years from the date of your accident in which to file suit. Don't wait any longer to consult a personal injury law firm. Reach out to our dedicated Tacoma, WA, catastrophic injury team online or call:

The effects of a spinal cord injury, motorcycle accident, or even wrongful death can be beyond heartbreaking. With our client-centered service, you can focus on healing while we fight for you.

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.
