Roberts & Roberts specialize in personal injury cases, including bodily injury and wrongful death cases.
Roberts & Roberts originally consisted of two brothers, Randy Roberts and Bruce Roberts, who were raised in Tyler, Texas. They both began their professional careers elsewhere, but eventually returned to Tyler to practice law and to raise their families. In its early years, the firm was known as Loftis & Roberts. Smith County's former County Judge and District Attorney, Harry Loftis, was also a partner in the law firm at that time.
The law firm was originally founded in 1982 by Randy Roberts. In 1987, the law firm renovated and moved into the old Simons home across from Bergfeld Park in Tyler's historic Azalea District. In 1990, the law firm became known as Roberts & Roberts.
Shortly after the law firm was established, it received local recognition for obtaining the county's largest wrongful death settlement at that time. The law firm subsequently received national recognition for uncovering the Firestone documents that helped lead to the recall of the Firestone ATX and Wilderness lines of tires. Randy Roberts has since been voted the "Top Personal Injury Attorney" in a poll of East Texans conducted by BSCENE Magazine, and Roberts & Roberts has been voted "Best Attorneys" in readership polls conducted by the Tyler Courier-Times Telegraph as well as BSCENE Magazine. The firm continues to draw national media attention because of its role in important product liability cases.
Roberts & Roberts holds the highest rating ("AV") from the Martindale-Hubbell Attorney Rating Service and is included in its Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. Roberts & Roberts has a history of helping people injured by unsafe practices and products as well as by unfair insurance practices.

Auto, Motorcycle, and Trucking Accidents
If you have been injured in a traffic accident due to the negligence of another driver, we can help you. We understand how an injury, even a minor one, can sometimes turn your life upside down. Whether it be helping you get the proper medical care, collecting your lost wages, or getting your car repaired, our goal at Roberts & Roberts is to take the concerns off of you.
Unsafe Equipment, Products, and Toys
All too often, consumer products are rushed to the market without comprehensive safety testing. This can result in life-changing injuries and deaths. If you or a loved one are harmed by an unsafe or defective product, contact Roberts & Roberts. We can help you hold the manufacturer responsible.
Toxic Chemical Exposures
Hazardous chemicals and toxic substances are a growing part of our environment at work and at home. When they are not labeled, used, and disposed of properly, people and generations to come can be permanently harmed. If you have been unnecessarily exposed to toxic or hazardous materials and your health has been negatively impacted, we can help.
Unsafe Medical Devices and Drugs
During the development of prescription drugs and medical devices, a company faces fierce competition to get its products to market in a timely manner. This can result in problems being overlooked and patients being harmed. If you have been injured by a medication or a medical device, contact us. We can help.
Watercraft and Swimming Accidents
With watercraft becoming more and more commonplace, more and more boaters are taking to the water without proper training or experience. The results can be disastrous, resulting in severe injuries or even fatalities. If you or a family member have been harmed by a careless watercraft operator or swimming pool operator, contact us for a free consultation.
Commercial establishments which charge a fee for admission, or businesses which invite the public on to their property to purchase goods or services, have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe. The law requires of property owners exercise ordinary care to protect their guests by making their property reasonably safe and warning of unsafe conditions. If you are injured on someone's property because of their negligent inspection, maintenance, or repair of their premises, contact us, and we'll be happy to help.
If you have made a claim under an insurance policy, and the insurance company is not being fair, you are going to need legal help -- the resources of a large corporation are too powerful for the average person. At Roberts & Roberts, we have the knowledge, ability, and experience to take on insurance companies.
If you've been injured at work, you are entitled to worker's compensation benefits. If your injury is due to the negligence of someone other than your employer or co-worker, you may be entitled to additional compensation. Contact us and we can help you get the compensation you need to make up for all of your losses.
Falls, Fires, and Electrical Accidents
Falls, fires, and electrocutions often appear to be "unavoidable accidents", but in reality, they are frequently caused by carelessness. Poor building design can lead to fatal fires, poor-quality wiring can lead to electrocutions, and anything from poor landscaping design to bad architecture can lead to injury-causing falls. If you have been involved in an injury of this type, contact us, and we'll help.
Oilfield, Construction, and Industrial Accidents
Drilling operations and construction sites as well as other major industrial work sites can be particularly hazardous. This is because of the number of contractors that need to be coordinated and the types of equipment in use. If safety is not the highest priority or the work is rushed, serious injury or death is often the result. If you are the victim of an unsafe workplace contact Roberts & Roberts. We can help.
Sports, Guns, and Recreational Accidents
All too often, sporting equipment is poorly manufactured in foreign countries and recreational facilities are poorly designed. The result can often mean unnecessary injury or death. If you or a family member have been unfortunate enough to be involved in a severe recreational accident, contact Roberts & Roberts for a free consultation.
Professional Malpractice, Including Legal Malpractice
When you seek the help of a professional, be it a doctor, lawyer, engineer, accountant, or financial advisor, you are putting your well-being in their hands. If you have suffered a loss due to the negligence of that professional, they need to be held accountable for their performance. At Roberts & Roberts, we have experience in professional malpractice cases, and we offer free consultations. Contact us if you need help.
Nursing Home Neglect
Placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted-living facility is one of the most emotionally traumatizing decisions you'll ever make. When you entrust the care of a loved one to a home, you do so with the understanding that their physical, mental, and emotional well-being will be looked after. If a nursing home or assisted-living facility through neglect or abuse has caused physical, mental, or emotional harm to your loved one, they have not upheld their end of the agreement you have entered into, and they have made the process that much more unbearable. These facilities can be held liable for abuse and neglect, and taking action can ensure that those behaviors end. At Roberts & Roberts, we have the knowledge, ability, and experience to pursue legal action against these companies and to help ensure the future safety of your loved one. Contact us.
