He relentlessly fights for justice on behalf of clients suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning, traumatic brain injury, and instances of corporate negligence. He is also a determined advocate for the families of individuals wrongfully killed as a result of corporate negligence and misconduct.

Tyson has represented clients across the country in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Utah, California, Oregon, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Alaska, and Nebraska in serious personal injury cases. In one of the largest verdicts in the United States in 2013, Tyson obtained a $28.5 million verdict, with Spence partner Bryan Ulmer, for a young woman who suffered a brain injury after being poisoned by carbon monoxide from a dangerous furnace in her apartment. In recent years Tyson has handled countless other carbon monoxide poisoning and brain injury cases and recovered millions for his injured clients. Tyson tried another carbon monoxide poisoning brain injury case in Colorado in the summer of 2017— Tyson asked for $10 million at trial. The case settled confidentially at the end of trial while the jury was deliberating over a damages verdict.
