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 $5,000.00.

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 of $2,100,000.00.

What advice do you most often give your clients & why?

Follow your doctors’ instructions and be proactive about getting the medical care and treatment you need. Your health and recovery is the most important thing.

How do you want to be remembered as an attorney?

As someone who always, without exception, put his client’s interests first.
