29TH ANNUAL RIO GRANDE VALLEY CELTIC FESTIVAL

(Click the link above for more information)

"The Rio Grande Valley Celtic Festival and Highland Games brings to New Mexico a celebration of the lifeways, traditions, cultural heritage and contributions of the Celtic nations to our American life."



Increase in Motor Vehicle Fatalities.

We will one day live in a country where nearly every vehicle is operated by a non-human.  When that occurs motor vehicle fatalities will become a thing of the past.  Meanwhile, the situation demands attention.  In the most recent reporting year of 2015 fatalities from motor vehicle crashes were up over 7% with 2348 more people dying on the nation’s roads.

As a matter of fact, the rates for passenger car and light truck deaths were the highest in the US since 2009.  SUV fatalities were up more than 10%.  Van fatalities increased nearly as much.  Motorcycle fatalities were the highest since 2012.  Perhaps the most disturbing statistic was another increase in alcohol-related accidents.

The day will come when it won’t be necessary to think about these things…sort of like smallpox.  That day is assuredly not here yet.  In the Great Southwest the firm you can trust to handle your vehicle accident injury case is Ken Wagner Law.  Ken and his staff will represent you aggressively from his Albuquerque office.  Please call them at (505) 242-6300.

Make your Easter Plans!

Ride on Hog…Ride On.

Ahhh Springtime!  It’s time to get that motorcycle out and ride the breathtaking roads of the Great Southwest.  They can be treacherous roads as well.  What do you think kills more millennials and kids between kindergarten and their mid-thirties?  Believe it or not, it is accidents related to motorcycles!

The threat is even more real on our open roads as opposed to congested large northeast cities.  This may not bring you much comfort, but in the majority of the cases the fault is NOT with the motorcyclist, but rather the driver of the other much bigger vehicle.  Defective equipment and heavy spring rains can also lead to a tragic mishap.

We hope that neither you nor a loved one are involved in a serious or even fatal accident.  If you need strong, steady, experienced representation please call Albuquerque motorcycle accident attorney Ken Wagner.  His half-century of personal injury experience and an amazing staff are behind every case.  Anywhere in the Great Southwest call Ken Wagner Law at (505) 242-6300.

Sloppy Medical Practices.

We have all heard about the really dumb stuff.  A surgeon operates on the wrong leg or leaves a something in the patient’s body.  These days, thank goodness, those incidents are becoming more rare.  Blunders still occur though.  For example, a surgeon may be operating on the wrong vertebra because of an unclear X-ray.

The bigger issue may be whether or not the treatment plan is even right in the first place.  There was actually a U.S. study that revealed nearly HALF of the patients surveyed did not receive the recommended care for their particular conditions!  Humans are not cranked out of some assembly line and one treatment does not necessarily fit all.

All of this is simply to say that you or a loved one may have been given shoddy medical treatment.  If that is the case, then you may have a case against a physician or medical center.  If you have received improper medical care in the Great Southwest please call (505) 242-6300.  The office of Ken Wagner headquartered in Albuquerque may be able to get you the compensation that you deserve!

What to do as a Victim of a Hit-and-Run.

A hit-and-run accident is probably more common than you think.  In this day and age with camera phones and other surveillance you would think that those days may be behind us.  A surprising 15%+ of all pedestrian car accidents are hit-and-runs.   

After you experience the panic and anger as a victim you need to take carefully measured steps.

1.  Immediately call for help.
2.  Try to identify the other driver in any way possible.
3.  Look around for witnesses.
4.  Call your insurance company.
5.  Call an attorney!

All of these steps are important in coming out of this experience whole.  When you deal with this type of accident you would do well to remember the name of Ken Wagner.  Ken Wagner Law has been helping victims get their proper compensation in the Great Southwest for 40+ years.  Call on the services of Albuquerque hit-and-run accident attorney Ken Wagner at (505) 242-6300.
