Burg Simpson’s Medical Malpractice Team Represents Severely Injured Clients

When a patient pursues medical treatment from a health care professional for an injury or illness, they hope that their condition will improve following the treatment they receive. However, when a medical professional acts in a careless or negligent manner and the patient’s condition worsens, it is essential to reach out to a medical malpractice attorney. Burg Simpson represents severely injured clients with medical malpractice claims.

The Foundation of a Medical Malpractice Case 

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is seriously harmed by a medical or health care professional who failed to perform their duties in a prudent manner. Errors may include those made during diagnosis, treatment, follow-up care, or health management. A negligent act or omission by a health care professional, which results in severe injury, is the foundation of a medical malpractice claim. 

Our Team of Legal and Medical Professionals

Due to the significant amount of evidence required to prove medical malpractice, litigating these claims is costly and labor-intensive. Medical malpractice cases require legal and medical experts to examine and analyze the facts of the case and testify on the client’s behalf. At Burg Simpson, our highly skilled and experienced Colorado medical malpractice attorneys have assembled and worked closely with a team of outside medical experts. Expert opinions from qualified medical professionals are an essential component of any medical malpractice lawsuit. Qualified legal and medical professionals provide the expert testimony required at trial.

Our Lawyers Will Evaluate Your Medical Malpractice Case

Medical malpractice attorneys generally receive a significant number of requests for medical malpractice case evaluations every day. Because we advance the expenses on behalf of our medical malpractice clients, we can pursue only a small percentage of the potential clients who contact us with medical malpractice issues.

To Win a Malpractice Lawsuit, We Will Seek to Prove:

  1. Your claim involved substandard care from a medical professional
  2. The substandard care you received caused significant injuries and losses

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

Whether your medical issue was a misdiagnosis, surgical error, or some other failure by a healthcare professional, being represented by an experienced medical malpractice lawyer at Burg Simpson can be essential to receiving compensation for your injury. Our medical malpractice attorneys have over four decades of experience litigating complex cases. If you or a loved one has been severely injured due to medical malpractice, call Burg Simpson for now to discuss your rights and options. 

We Accept Cases on a Contingency Basis

When Burg Simpson represents a client with a medical malpractice claim, we take the case on a contingency basis. Taking a case on contingency means that the law firm gets paid only after we have secured a recovery for our client. Before accepting a case, the law firm will estimate the case value and make an approximate calculation of the fees, costs, liens, and expenses associated with bringing the case to trial. For the severely injured plaintiff to get a recovery from the lawsuit, the dollar amount of the damages must exceed the costs of litigation.

If You Have Been the Victim of Medical Malpractice
