 Burg Simpson Attorneys Win Second Appeal to Protect $7.3 Million Verdict in a Traumatic Brain Injury Case

In a case that began in 2008, Burg Simpson shareholders David Hersh and Steven Greenlee proved that the U.S. Air Force Academy was responsible for the catastrophic and life-changing injuries of the plaintiff. The Court affirmed the multi-million dollar award, and determined that the “willful conduct” exception to the Colorado Recreational Use Statute prevented the United States from claiming immunity from suit.
