Has Another’s Negligence Left You Unable To Live the Life You Love?
Western Washington is one of the best places to live in America. We have waterfronts, picturesque views, nearby mountains and hiking and biking trails. This is a great place to live if you enjoy an active lifestyle or beautiful scenery. Someone else’s negligence could affect your lifestyle.
If you were in an accident, you might be left with chronic pain that never stops and that might be keeping you from enjoying your life. If someone’s negligence injured you, changed your life or led to the death of a loved one, Doug Cloud Law is here to help you.

I also have a strong track record of achieving positive results in serious and catastrophic personal injury cases.
A History Of Client Advocacy
My firm has helped thousands of personal injury victims in the Tacoma area and throughout Western Washington.

Representative clients include:

Answers To Common Questions About Personal Injury Litigation
Below, I’ve provided answers to questions I often hear from prospective clients.
I’ve been injured. Do I have a case?
If your injuries were caused by the negligence or wrongful actions of another person, business or organization, you owe it to yourself to consult a legal professional. I won’t be able to tell you if you have a case until I hear the details of your story. But thankfully, I make it easy to explore your legal options by offering free initial consultations.
Can I sue a product manufacturer for injuries I’ve sustained due to a faulty product? Can I sue the product seller?
If you were injured because of a product’s dangerous defect in design, manufacturing or marketing and safety warnings, you can typically bring a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the product. Depending on the circumstances, you may also be able to include the retailer (where you purchased the product) as a defendant as well. Stores are responsible for ensuring that the products they sell are reasonably safe, as are others in the supply chain. You can learn more by visiting my product liability page.
Do I have a claim for brain injuries sustained while playing high school or college football?
You might. While players and their families agree to some risk when students participate in contact sports like football, coaches and schools have a duty to carefully monitor players and keep them from returning to play immediately following a known or suspected brain injury. Washington state has been a national leader in implementing laws to protect young players.
I will need to carefully investigate the details of your case. Suffice it to say, if those overseeing a football program acted negligently or with disregard for your safety, you may be able to bring a claim.
