Our Expertise

Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal Injury

We help personal injury victims from car accidents, maritime assault or accidents, slip and fall, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and many other types of accidents and negligence. We know that it can be difficult to recover while fighting for the compensation you deserve.

Car Accidents

If you were injured in a car accident in the Mount Vernon area, you need a local car accident lawyer to fight for you. We have the resources, experience, and knowledge necessary to represent clients who suffered injuries in a car crash, truck accident, or motorcycle accident.

Wrongful Death

If you lost a loved one to wrongful death, the grief can make it difficult to function; let alone seek justice. An experienced wrongful death lawyer can bring a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for the family of the victim for their financial and emotional losses.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to serious injury than those inside a car when they are involved in a motor vehicle accident. Our motorcycle lawyers have decades of experience fighting for justice and full compensation on behalf of injured motorcyclists.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists hardly stand a chance against a motor vehicle, which is what makes bicycle accidents so dangerous. Your best chance of receiving a full and fair settlement for your injuries is with the help of an experienced bicycle accident lawyer by your side. 

Medical Malpractice

Our dedicated and experienced medical malpractice lawyers fight for justice on behalf of those injured by medical negligence. Each step of the pre-trial and trial process is handled with care from gathering information to retaining expert witnesses, to pre-trial litigation.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Some head injuries result in prolonged or non-reversible brain damage. These serious head injuries are called traumatic brain injury. A traumatic brain injury lawyer seeks justice on behalf of individuals suffering from TBI due to the negligence of another.

Nursing Home Neglect

Each year in the United States, an estimated 2.1 million seniors report being the victims of some form of abuse while thousands more suffer in silence. Elder abuse is unacceptable. If your loved one has suffered at the hands of a caretaker, a nursing home abuse lawyer can fight for justice.

Child Injury

Children are more susceptible to injuries and may need counseling to heal from the trauma of being involved in an accident as well as medical care. If your child has sustained a serious injury due to the negligence of another, a child injury lawyer can help you seek justice.

Maritime Accidents

Fishermen, longliners, fish processors, factory trawlers, gill netters, seiners, draggers, deckhands, and other commercial maritime workers take on a high risk for injury on the job but when an injury occurs as a result of a negligent employer, a maritime injury lawyer can help.

Slip & Fall

Slip and fall accidents affect thousands of Americans every year – seniors are especially vulnerable. A qualified slip and fall accident lawyer knows local premises liability and social host liability laws and is best suited to recovering a settlement in a slip and fall accident case.

Pedestrian Accidents

It’s not hard to understand why pedestrians are so vulnerable on the road compared to drivers. When a pedestrian accident causes debilitating injuries or wrongful death, you want a skilled and experienced pedestrian injury lawyer on your side to fight for a full and fair settlement.

Words From Clients

  • I was rear ended and first sought help from a group I heard on the radio. They went through a total of five lawyers and paralegals in my case and nothing ever happened. I went to Tario and Associates and finally had results for what was a cut-and dry case. I cannot recommend them enough. There’s a reason these other guys have to spend money to get business, don’t waste your time, go straight with the team who will get results.


  • Mr. Tario and his legal staff managed my case superbly and kept me apprised of developments along the way. Mr. Tario listened to my concerns as well as those of my husband and family, and ensured those concerns were negotiated into my final settlement. I was and am still very pleased with the outcome. I truly felt that Mr. Tario was looking out for my my family’s interests and future. I highly recommend Mr. Tario and would seek his legal services again if a situation should warrant it.


  • We just finished a car accident case that took 4 years, but would have taken 10 years if it wasn’t for Mr. Tario, Sandy, and their entire hardworking team. They kept me well informed of updates on the case, and made sure I was prepared for all meetings with the opposing council…If I am ever needing legal assistance again, or if anyone I know is looking for an attorney, I will turn to Tario & Associates every time!

    Car Accident Claim
    Tario & associates was so wonderful with my case! I didn’t have to pay anything until my case was settled. They fought for me to get fair compensation and they were successful. They did not give up or give in when the insurance company was refusing to pay fair compensation…
