Personal Injury Litigation
The Law Offices of Robert G. Lewis represents plaintiffs in serious personal injury matters. For a negligence claim to exist two elements must be present: One, fault on the part of the other party, and two, you must be physically, emotionally, or economically damaged as result of the other party’s actions.
Depending on the case, my office often associates with other lawyers to assist or lead in the case.
Our firm has recently recovered a million dollar settlement related to nursing home negligence. In a trucking accident we recovered a 1.7 million dollar settlement for the client.

Wrongful Death and Injury
The wrongful death of a family member or loved one caused by the negligent conduct or actions of another party can be devastating to surviving family members and those who loved the deceased individual.
No lawsuit or legal action can make the pain go away or make your loss easier to accept. However, Arizona wrongful death laws have been put in place to provide you and your family with a mechanism for recovery. Though no amount of money could ever replace your loved one, fair and just compensation can help you and your family receive a sense of justice.
We can help you obtain fair and just compensation for emotional claims and financial damages suffered as a result of an accident caused by the negligence of another party.
Dram Shop Liquor Liability
Over serving alcohol to an individual
In many auto accidents, the drivers involved in these accidents are on the road after a night of drinking at a bar, someone’s house, nightclub or other establishment that serves liquor. In these situations, Arizona dram shop law indicates there may be negligence by the establishment who served the liquor if an over-served patron causes an accident involving death or injury to a third party due to alcohol intoxication.
If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident and you suspect the intoxicated driver may have been over-served, we can help you hold those responsible.
Persons that serve alcohol have a responsibility to not over-serve patrons, to not serve underage drinkers, and to refuse to serve persons who appear intoxicated or who have already consumed a large amount of alcohol. Failure to live up to these responsibilities can amount to negligence and expose those who serve liquor to liability.
We help injured persons and their families to obtain fair and just compensation for the harms they have suffered as a result of auto accidents involving drunk drivers and drivers who have been over-served.
Dog Bite Accident
A dog or animal can inflict severe pain, suffering, disfigurement and even death, especially when small children are involved. In addition, a dog bite or animal attack can leave permanent physical scars and serious psychological effects that can linger long after the injuries have healed.
If you have been injured in a dog bite incident or animal attack, or a family member has been injured or killed, we can help you get the compensation you need and are entitled to under the law.
Dog owners can be held responsible for the injuries their dogs inflict, whether the dog was at large, unleashed, leashed, or fenced in at the time the incident occurred. No matter the circumstances of the attack, an experienced personal injury attorney is critical in determining the liability of the dog owner.
In a dog bite case handled by Robert G. Lewis involving a dog attack on a 4 year-old child, a settlement was obtained against the dog’s owner in an amount of $400,000.
We help injured persons and their families obtain fair and just compensation for the harms they have suffered as a result of dog bites and animal attacks.
