Who We Are And What We Do

Why Hire Burge & Burge?

The Focus of our Birmingham Law Firm

The family of attorneys at Burge & Burge, PC, is committed to helping you and your family after an accident, injury or disabling illness. We understand the difficulty individuals encounter when they try to recover compensation on their own. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can make the process easier.

Our experience and record of success has earned us a reputation as smart, skilled attorneys who pursue every option for our clients in and out of the courtroom. The firm, as well as each lawyer at Burge & Burge, has earned an AV* rating under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review rating system.

Our practice includes Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) claims, catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims, car accidents, medical malpractice and nursing home abuse. We also practice workers’ compensation law and help people with Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income claims.

Who We Represent

We represent railroad employees in their FELA claims in state and federal courts throughout the southeast and Midwest. FELA claims we have successfully handled include injuries from a single traumatic event as well as occupational diseases and injuries from prolonged exposure to toxic chemicals, asbestos, silica, unsafe noise levels, excessive vibration and ergonomically unsafe positions. Several rail labor unions have recognized our work in this area by appointing our attorneys to serve as designated legal counsel to their members, including SMART-Transportation (formerly the United Transportation Union, UTU), and the Transportation Communications International Union (TCU).

We also represent railroad employees who have been harassed by their employers for engaging in activities protected by the Federal Rail Safety Act.

In Addition To Representing Our Clients

Burge & Burge is available to assist other attorneys with major injury cases. If you seek co-counsel or a referral partnership for large, complex personal injury cases, we are an excellent choice. We have the resources and skill to help you recover maximum compensation for your clients.

Personal injury, workers’ compensation, FELA and SSD/SSI cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. If we accept your case, there is no fee unless we recover damages for you.
