In their “Top Verdicts” issue dated April 29th, 2019, Law Week Colorado recognized Burg Simpson shareholders Stephen Burg and David J. Crough for securing a significant award for a client who suffered injuries as a result of a motorcycle crash.

In the summer of 2014, the plaintiff was riding his motorcycle in Highlands Ranch when the defendant turned in front of the plaintiff’s bike. As a result of the crash, the plaintiff’s motorcycle struck the defendant’s vehicle and left the plaintiff with severe injuries that required several surgeries.

When the case went to trial in 2018, a Colorado jury returned a $1.3 million verdict in the Moon v. Gooden motorcycle accident case. After expenses and interest were included, the final award was $1,668,365.80. This was one of the largest verdicts ever for this type of injury. The verdict secured by Mr. Burg and Mr. Crough far surpassed the defense’s best settlement offer of $265,000.

Stephen J. Burg’s and David Crough’s highly successful personal injury practice is focused on representing victims of auto crashes, personal injury, trucking accidents, product liability injuries, gas explosions, wrongful death, and harmful drug products.

Burg Simpson’s personal injury team has been fighting to protect their clients’ rights and getting results for over four decades.
