We have won significant cases for those injured by various state agencies, including the Department of Transportation, Department of Corrections, Department of Social and Health Services, and the City of Tacoma. No matter what level or branch of government, Evergreen Personal Injury Counsel has the expertise and experience to take on the government and win.
