- Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA)
The Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA), passed in Congress in 1908, provides benefits for injured railroad employees and their families.

Most railroad employees are protected under FELA, even those who do not work on or around trains.

That is where our lawyers can help you. Our personal injury lawyers will take the important steps after your accident to file your claim as soon as possible.
- Social Security Disability / Supplemental Security Income
If you or a family member is suffering debilitating symptoms from an injury or illness, you should be spending your time and energy on the medical care you need. If you are trapped in the red tape of the Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income (SSD/SSI) process, however, you will have little time left to rest and medical treatment.
- Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's negligent act or an omission breaches an established standard of care, resulting in damage or harm to a patient. Our medical malpractice lawyers at Burge & Burge have represented people who have been victims of medical malpractice.
- Professional Negligence / Legal Malpractice
When you seek help from a professional, you trust that he or she will provide you with just that; professional service. Unfortunately that trust can be broken through either negligence or fraud. Our attorneys are here to help you seek compensation for your injuries or losses due to professional misconduct.
- Bad Faith Insurance
Your insurance company has a legal obligation to provide you with certain services. These include things like investigating claims in a timely manner, settling claims quickly and providing a clear explanation with any claim denial or settlement. When your insurance company fails to do these things, they could be acting in bad faith.
