Texas workers’ compensation attorney Frank D. Weedon has joined the Tyler-based personal injury law firm of Roberts & Roberts. Frank is Board Certified in Workers’ Compensation Law, a distinction held by less than 100 attorneys in the state of Texas.

A native Texan, Frank received a B.A. in Economics from the University of Texas-Arlington and his J.D. from South Texas College of Law. He is licensed to practice in all Texas courts, as well as in the United States District Court’s Eastern and Southern Districts.

Frank began his career working in the insurance claims industry, starting as a file room clerk and advancing to a catastrophic workers’ compensation adjuster, investigating complex industrial injury claims. Upon graduation from law school in 1998, he started his practice as an insurance defense attorney representing large corporations and many major Texas insurers. In 2002, he transitioned his practice to representing plaintiffs and victims of injury in East Texas.

Frank has special competence in industrial and work-related injuries and has handled thousands of such claims as an adjuster and attorney. He is OSHA certified and SafeLand Drilling certified by the Petroleum Education Council.

Frank is widely recognized as an expert in insurance claims-handling tactics and has testified as an expert witness approximately 90 times in federal and state courts in Texas, Oklahoma and Arizona. In addition, he has instructed insurance adjusters on how to handle claims as an approved provider through the Texas Department of Insurance. Frank is a frequent lecturer at State Bar Of Texas events, and has twice testified at the Texas Legislature on behalf of injured workers.

Frank is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association. He is active in his church, serving on various boards and committees. He and his wife have three daughters and one granddaughter.
