TV 7 – The Denver Channel Interviews Michael S. Burg Regarding a Personal Injury Case

Burg Simpson’s founding shareholder Michael Burg is currently representing Ms. Holly Gould in a personal injury matter. On July 20, 2017, Ms. Gould, the plaintiff, was driving northbound on Indiana Street near 86th Avenue in Arvada, Colorado.  At the same time, the defendant, the railroad company, was performing “track maintenance” on Union Pacific tracks located on the bridge above Indiana Street. Rocks fell from the track, striking and severely injuring Ms. Gould when the rocks penetrated her car’s sunroof as she drove under the bridge.

Michael Burg stated that he found about similar incidents involving Union Pacific Railroad Company. He said, “We know in the 12 months following this, 19 times they dropped rocks on cars and vehicles and on people. This is dangerous and they haven’t done anything to change their policy. That’s unacceptable. We need to make sure that when people are driving this is not going to happen to them.”
