Brain Injury Lawyer

Brain Injury Lawyer

As a trial lawyer practicing law in Colorado for over 30 years, I have witnessed first-hand just how devastating a serious brain injury can be physically, emotionally and financially for the survivors and their families.

At Burg Simpson, we are committed to educating the public about the dangers posed by these injuries and helping individuals understand their legal rights. A substantial portion of our practice is focused on helping survivors of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries recover the financial means and community support to rebuild their lives and thrive after a serious accident or injury.

Our brain injury lawyers aim to provide individuals and families the financial means to:

  • Gain access to the very best medical treatment for the brain injury
  • Afford ongoing rehabilitation and lifetime care
  • Make accessibility improvements to their homes
  • Modify and adapt their vehicles
  • Provide for their families and dependents
  • Live as full a life as possible

Over the last 30 years, Burg Simpson has had numerous successful outcomes in obtaining compensation for clients who have suffered a brain injury as a direct result of others’ negligence, in cases involving:

  • Brain injury accidents
  • Adverse reactions to prescription drugs and devices
  • Automobile accidents
  • Explosions and fires
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Ski and snowmobile accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Sports and recreational accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Workplace accidents

Our commitment to supporting survivors of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries is not limited to our practice of law. As a brain injury lawyer, I am a passionate advocate for survivors of traumatic brain and spinal cord injury—both inside and outside the courtroom.
