About Me


Ty Taber is among the most respected and successful personal injury trial lawyers in Arizona. For more than three decades, he has protected the rights of victims of negligence, earning dozens of settlements and jury verdicts as high as $7.5 million for injured persons and the families of victims of wrongful death.


A Certified Specialist in Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation (Arizona Board of Legal Specialization), Ty has represented injured parties who suffered losses stemming from personal attack and abuse, mistreatment, neglect, dangerous working conditions, motor vehicle accidents (including golf carts, ATVs, motorcycles, motor scooters, Go-Peds, automobiles, trucks and tractor trailers), aircraft accidents (including airplanes, helicopters and hot air balloons) and products liability, premises liability and professional liability cases.


His recent victories – in negotiated settlements and as lead counsel in numerous jury trials – on behalf of injured clients include:




  • a $4 million verdict for the parents of an eight-year-old girl killed while horseback riding;



  • a $2.7 million verdict for a 20-year-old woman stranded for 10 days on a state highway;



  • a personal injury settlement of more than $1 million to compensate a man who was crushed between a tractor trailer and a loading dock;



  • products liability litigation against a large national trailer rental corporation involving three deaths arising out of the use of a towing apparatus; and



  • a number of settlements of more than $1 million in cases involving products liability, professional liability, and auto and aircraft accidents.
