Therefore, our attorneys handle every case as if it were their own.

Doesn’t it make sense to be represented by an attorney who was once on the inside of the insurance defense world?

Resolution of your case is part of the goal, but the larger goal is to optimize your recovery. Although we will provide you with a settlement and/or jury verdict range, you will ultimately decide whether to settle your case or take it to a jury. With our counseling and advice, you will feel comfortable with your decision. The litigation process is complex, stressful and always seems to take longer than most people want it to take, but our office will navigate all the legal issues for you; which is what you should expect from your law firm.

Car Accidents

Terrifying. The entire event, regardless of the speed, is terrifying. After the collision, you were probably filled with a mix of emotions, including fear, confusion, anger and panic. On top of that, you were likely injured which results in its own set of emotions, pains and more confusion. And now you are likely concerned with such things as recovering from your injuries, your employment or lost wages, medical bills and having to deal with the insurance company. Let the attorneys at Marcellino & Tyson, PLLC worry about this for you.

You’ll need a law firm that will fight for you while you recover from your injuries. With several years of litigation experience, our

Truck Accidents

Trucks, buses and other large motor vehicles are just that — larger than your typical vehicles. Therefore, accidents that involve these types of vehicles will likely see more severe property damage, physical injuries and emotional distress. Truck accidents can quickly become a complex situation. Like car accidents, you will be required to prove certain elements in order to recover. However, many times the driver of the at-fault vehicle may have been on the job at the time of the accident. Therefore, not only will the driver of the truck be responsible for your damages and injuries, but his or her employer may also be responsible too.

Charlotte and the surrounding cities find themselves in a beltway of highways and byways, from I-77 to I-85. Accidents will
happen. It is important that you select an attorney who can navigate the difficulties of a catastrophic truck accident and get you what you deserve. Dealing with an insurance company that is operating under a commercial insurance policy is difficult if you’ve never been there before.

If you choose to move forward alone or select the wrong firm, you could end up with less than you deserve, or worse, nothing.

Motorcycle & Scooter/Moped Accidents

Over the years, motorcycles, mopeds and scooters have steadily become more popular within Charlotte and the surrounding cities. These accidents, like with most, may have lasting effects on you and your family, from high medical bills, permanent injuries and possible negative effects on your employment. Your emotions, frustrations and concerns may fade, but it will take a while. Your lawyer should shoulder as much of your burden as possible to help you heal, both physically and emotionally.

Motorcycle accidents, moped accidents and scooter accidents are sometimes caused by the negligent actions of an automobile driver failing to properly check his or her lane of travel before merging or changing lanes. Many issues can arise with your case, but if these difficulties are not handled properly, they can have a negative impact on your recovery. It is important that you are represented by an experienced law firm

that will not only work to maximize your recovery, but will also work to allow you to heal and move forward with your life.

Slip & Fall/Premises

These accidents happen every day. One person may slip and fall at a local department store. Another person may be assaulted in a parking deck or at an apartment building. And then another person may fall through a rotten wood plank on a deck. The resulting injuries can be tremendous, both physically and emotionally. Whatever the incident, your premises liability action needs to be handled aggressively and efficiently.

Who is responsible for an assault or accident that occurs in an apartment complex, bar, hotel or a parking lot? Who is responsible when a child gets injured after he or she finds his or her way into a local pool or pond? Who is responsible for an injury that results from a fallen tree or when a structure collapses? The

answers may be more difficult than you think and in fact may have multiple answers and options.

If you or a loved one has been a victim, contact an experienced attorney at Marcellino & Tyson to learn about your rights.

Dog Bites

Dog bite accidents can result in terribly serious personal injuries, scarring and even death. In addition, and just as likely, are the mental injuries that result such as nightmares and a fear of dogs. These mental and emotional injuries can become paralyzing. North Carolina has certain unique laws and burdens of proof which must be handled correctly for you to be able to recover.

You will need an experienced attorney who understands these laws and your injuries, both present and future. If you have been injured by a dog or other animal, you may be able to recover compensation.

The entire process needs constant and immediate attention. The process is complex, and we recommend that you contact an attorney at Marcellino & Tyson, PLLC, as soon as the attack occurs.

Passenger In Accident

Were you the passenger in a vehicle that was involved in an accident? If so, what options do you have as a passenger in a vehicle, truck, motorcycle, moped or scooter that was involved in an accident? The answer is that you have many options. And let’s face it, you are likely completely innocent of any wrong doing.

As a passenger, your physical injuries can be devastating; not to mention the mental injuries, medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning potential, and pain and suffering. If you have a valid claim, you have the right to receive compensation.

However, there are unique difficulties with a passenger claim. There are times where it is difficult to determine which driver or drivers caused the accident. These cases can be very complex and the issues of liability can really drag out the process.

Each decision on how to move forward with your case is important. It is important that you hire an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process and increase your likelihood of recovering the compensation that you deserve.

Product Liability

Product liability is an area of law that provides compensation to people who have been injured by a dangerous or defective product. If a product injures you, you may be able to hold the manufacturer and/or the distributor liable for your injuries.

Product liability claims are very complex, and there are always difficulties in proving liability and causation. In addition, it is normal for there to be multiple parties who can be held liable for your injuries. However, there are three basic types of liability: strict liability, negligence and/or breach of warranty. Determining which claim to pursue is critical to your case. As if that weren’t enough, there are more issues that will need to be determined.

There are several different types of product defects: design defects, marketing defects or manufacturing defects. As with identifying which liability claim is relevant to your case, we will need to identify which product defect to pursue.

If you or a loved one has been a victim, contact an experienced attorney at Marcellino & Tyson to learn about your rights.

Concise & Compassionate

During a difficult time I needed legal counsel and advice on several matters, including some that were already concluded or in place. Fortunately, Jennifer Moore plead my case(s), reduced my financial burdens, and enhanced and streamlined my order(s) as such to benefit all parties. Her dedication, procedural knowledge, court room demeanor, coupled with her diligence and moral center exceeded my expectations. A keen ability to read into an opposing attorney’s strategy (even during examination/court) is another key asset Jennifer wielded, and proved our case.

Unfortunately there is not enough that I can say to properly distinguish Jennifer Moore adequately here. Simply, she is the finest attorney I have worked with in the last 25 years. She is open, concise, compassionate, ethical, and willing to examine deeply to achieve success.

Recent Verdict

In 2014, attorney Bryan Tyson successfully settled a slip and fall claim that spanned two continents, multiple defendants and various medical providers in different countries. The amount of this settlement is confidential. The attorneys at Marcellino & Tyson have successful settled many other personal injury matters, including claims resulting from minor vehicular car accidents.
