Welcome to Burg Simpson Ohio – Good Lawyers. Changing Lives.®

 

For more than 40 years, the attorneys at Burg Simpson’s Ohio office have amassed an impressive history of fighting for the legal rights of anyone who’s been injured from the negligence of others. We have extensive trial experience representing individuals in both state and federal courts in Ohio and across the country. Every day, we work hard to be Good Lawyers. Changing Lives.®

Business/Commercial Litigation – Burg Simpson’s commercial litigation division handles a broad range of corporate legal matters. We’ve handled cases such as class action suits, whistleblower, and qui tam actions, as well as product liability issues.

Consumer Litigation/Class Action – Class action lawsuits involve a large number of clients similarly affected by a situation that entitles them to compensation. This is often the most efficient, organized, and financially sound way of making a case against large corporations. We handle class actions that tackle consumer product liability, fraud/breach of warranty, and breach of contract claims.

Dangerous Drugs & Medical Devices – Our Ohio mass tort lawyers fight for consumers who’ve endured severe side effects from dangerous prescription drugs, or who’ve been hurt by defective medical device. Our team of trial lawyers, paralegals, and nurses have years of experience with these cases, which can be incredibly complicated.

Employment Law – Both federal and state law dictate the ground rules for employment compensation. The Fair Labor Standards Act establishes employment practices in the areas of minimum wage and overtime pay. State laws also provide guidance on minimum wage and overtime pay, among others. Burg Simpson Ohio has the experience needed to navigate this complex system.

Personal Injury – Our personal injury litigators in Ohio help injured individuals – and their families – put their lives back together after a serious injury, illness or wrongful death. Whether it involves a car or trucking accidents, a daycare injury, or even wrongful death, we’ll help secure the compensation you deserve.
