STEPHEN J. BURG
“The Face of Personal Injury Litigation”
Burg Simpson shareholder Stephen J. Burg is the practice group leader of the firm’s personal injury team. Stephen is focused on representing victims of automobile and motorcycle crashes, trucking accidents, product liability injuries, gas explosions, wrongful death, and harmful drugs and medical products.
As a dedicated advocate for those who have been harmed by the carelessness of others, Stephen Burg has a long-standing reputation for his formidable skills as a litigator and a negotiator. He has a passion for holding negligent parties accountable for their actions and maximizing financial recoveries for his clients.
Trial attorney Stephen J. Burg has been recognized for his legal excellence both nationally and locally. He was named as a “Recommended Attorney” by the U.S. Legal 500, and has been consistently recognized by the National Trial Lawyers as a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer since 2012. He has also been selected as a Rising Star by Colorado Super Lawyers ® every year for the past eight years.
Burg Simpson has a long track record of success fighting insurance companies in coverage disputes arising from our firm’s four decades of reading, analyzing, and interpreting first party policies. This experience includes 20 years when we were hired by the insurance companies themselves for this very purpose. For the past 12+ years, we have exclusively represented policyholders.
Now, many of these same insurance companies are delaying, denying, or threatening to deny covered business-related losses and claims from the COVID-19 epidemic. This is the most critical time for businesses to know their rights under their insurance policies, as many companies struggle to survive in these trying times. Burg Simpson has the knowledge, experience, and reputation in the industry to battle for businesses against the insurance companies in this complex and high stakes arena.
The key to getting these claims paid will be the specific language of the insurance policy, state laws, and the verbiage used by the governmental authorities with their stay-at-home/shelter-in-place types of orders. On behalf of businesses negatively impacted, we are now actively assessing and pursuing commercial insurance coverage matters involving business interruption claims, civil authority coverage, event cancellation, pollution coverage, and supply chain interruption claims. For more information on business interruption insurance matters, call the Commercial Litigation team at Burg Simpson at 303 752 5595.
