It is Important to Know the Facts Before Filing a Lawsuit

Burg Simpson’s founding shareholder Michael S. Burg was interviewed on SiriusXM’s The Laura Coates Show on Monday, November 8th. During the interview, Mr. Burg commented on the tragic events that occurred at Astroworld’s Travis Scott Concert in Houston, TX, last Friday night. The tragedy erupted when fans rushed the stage, trampling and crushing their fellow spectators. The actions of the crowd led to the death of 8 young concertgoers and injured hundreds of others. 

Michael Burg expressed dismay at the senseless loss of lives but was also surprised at the number of law firms who have already filed personal injury lawsuits without yet knowing all the facts. As an attorney with over four decades of experience, Mr. Burg stressed the importance of having all the facts from a complete and thorough investigation before filing a lawsuit. He said that depending on the investigation results; there could be multiple defendants in this matter, including Live Nation, public and private security companies, and even Travis Scott himself.
