Q&A with Robert Duncan
Why did you decide to pursue a career in personal injury law?
Simple: I wanted to help people—individuals and their families.
What is your main priority in a personal injury case?
To educate my clients regarding the process, keep them informed as we move
forward on their claim, and maximize their financial recovery.
Tell us about a case that you are particularly proud of:
There are two. First, I represented a woman from the south side of Chicago.
She fractured her ankle when she
slipped on an ice patch that developed because of a long-unrepaired broken pipe
in the back yard of her apartment building. The insurance company for
the property owner immediately came out to the building and offered her
We investigated the claim, took statements, had photographs taken, and
presented a comprehensive demand package to the insurance company. They
paid $175,000.00 to settle my client's claim. That money allowed her
to go back to school, obtain a degree/certification as a CNA, and provide
for herself and her family.
Second, I represented a man with a 20-year history of severe lower
back pain who was involved in a collision with a postal worker. Before the collision
he was already attending a pain clinic every month and taking medication
every day. Following the collision, his pain became worse and was not
controlled by the medication, as it had been previously. There was no
objective change in his lumbar pathology and no surgery recommended to
address the increased symptoms. He incurred approximately $5,000.00 in
medical expenses. I obtained a verdict in excess of $2,000,000.00.
What advice do you most often give your clients & why?

medical care and treatment you need. Your health and recovery is the most
