Matthew M. Rundio concentrates his practice in plaintiff's personal injury law including cases arising from medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, construction negligence, transportation (automobile, truck, and railroad) negligence, premises liability, aviation negligence, and wrongful death litigation.
Mr. Rundio attended the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 1997. He then attended Loyola University of Chicago School of Law and earned a Juris Doctor degree in 2000.
Mr. Rundio began his practice in personal injury litigation as a law clerk at a prominent plaintiff's personal injury law firm specializing in claims for wrongful death and personal injury arising out of aviation, transportation, medical malpractice, and product liability claims. During his tenure, he had responsibilities in all aspects of preparing plaintiff personal injury claims for trial from the initial filing of lawsuits through case preparation for settlements and jury verdicts. The cases he worked on addressed complex and often cutting-edge liability and damages issues. This experience included matters that resulted in a 6.5 million dollar settlement in a pedestrian-bus accident, a 5.25 million dollar settlement in a taxi cab-automobile collision, a 2.4 million dollar jury verdict in a motor vehicle negligence suit, a 2 million dollar settlement in a construction negligence claim, a $425,000 jury verdict in a construction negligence/premises liability suit, a multi-million dollar jury verdict in a railroad negligence case, and several multi-million dollar jury verdicts and pre-trial settlements in medical malpractice cases.
Upon receiving his law degree, Mr. Rundio continued working in the personal injury area as an associate at a leading insurance defense litigation firm in Chicago, Illinois. He participated in and managed the defense of claims for compensatory (economic and non-economic damages) and punitive damages based on liability claims for construction injuries, exposure to toxic fumes, nursing home neglect, and auto, trucking, and railroad accidents. Mr. Rundio was a member of the trial team that defended a construction contractor in the collapse of a stadium retractable roof resulting in multiple deaths. He also participated in the defense of a railroad tank car manufacturer in a class-action lawsuit for the release of a toxic gas in a two state area.
Mr. Rundio is a member of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Chicago Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association and the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.
