Mr. Burg said, “As a personal injury lawyer for the last 30 years, I have handled many cases involving brain and spinal cord injuries. I have seen first hand the devastating effects these injuries can have on people and their families. The staff at Craig Hospital does remarkable work in helping to rehabilitate individuals with spinal cord and traumatic brain injury. Homeruns for Craig 2011 is a fun way for our firm to cheer on the home team, and at the same time help support such a worthwhile cause.“
Michael Fordyce, President of Craig Hospital said, “Craig Hospital is extremely grateful to Peter and the shareholders of Burg Simpson for their continuing support.
