Defective Products are out there…Everywhere.

Defective products come in all types such as vehicles, the tires they run on, medicines you take, equipment used in manufacturing, children’s toys, appliances you use every day, food that you eat confidently in a restaurant and yes, even items without proper warnings.  If you don’t believe that, check out The McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case.

Product liability comes in three specific categories –

1.  The design is defective
2.  Poorly manufactured items
3.  Warnings about possible harm

Defective Products and the damage they do are something that should never be tolerated in America today!  Ken Wagner of Ken Wagner Law in Albuquerque knows all about defective products.  He was one of the lead attorneys on The McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case.  Call Ken and his team today to investigate your case in The Great Southwest at (505) 242-6300.

Wrongful Death Defined.

It sounds bizarre on the surface, doesn’t it?  Isn’t death ALWAYS wrong?  Of course it is, but as it is defined by the laws of New Mexico and The Great Southwest a wrongful death claim can arise after situations in which a victim who would otherwise have a valid personal injury claim is killed as a result of a defendant’s wrongful action.

Let’s give you some examples –

1.  When the victim is intentionally killed…think O.J.
2.  Death resulting from medical malpractice.  You need aggressive representation.
3.  Car fatalities that involve negligence…probably the most common.

In order to hold the defendant liable in a claim of wrongful death, the plaintiffs in the claim must meet the same burden of proof that the victim would have had to meet had he or she lived.  Pursuing a case of wrongful death is the purview of Ken Wagner Law in Albuquerque.  Trust the experience of Ken and his team by calling (505) 242-6300.

Nearly Everyone Experiences it at Least Once.

That may sound like a loaded headline, but in point of fact, eventually most of the people in The Great Southwest will be in one or more traffic collisions in their lives.  We hope that it (they) are merely fender bender(s).  The reality is that at some point you and/or a loved one may be in a vehicle accident that needs the help of an attorney.

Here is an important point…seek out an accident lawyer sooner rather than later. You should know that in the aftermath of serious accidents, insurance companies are going to send out investigators as well as accident reconstruction experts and others to begin the process of defending the case you will bring against their insured driver.

You see why hiring an auto accident attorney in The Great Southwest is so time sensitive.  One of the very best in the region is The Law Firm of Ken Wagner Law located in Albuquerque.  They will bring over a half-century of expertise to your case with passion and commitment.  Just call Ken Wagner Law at (505) 242-6300.

Nursing Homes Should Be Care Facilities.

When a loved one must spend their days in a nursing facility anywhere in The Great Southwest you have the right to assume that your relative is being cared for the same way as if you were on the premises.  That assumption can lead to what is commonly known throughout America as Nursing Home Abuse.

In America there are approximately 17,000 nursing homes.  They currently care for over one and a half million residents.  Some of the signs of neglect may be –

1.  Obvious physical abuse…even if the resident is too intimidated to admit it.
2.  The mood of the resident changes when you visit.
3.  You perceive a lack of care and interest by the providers.

Look for all these signs and more when you suspect nursing home abuse.  If you feel that your loved one is being mistreated in any way, please call the Law Office of Ken Wagner Law located in Albuquerque NM.  Ken and his staff have decades of experience dealing with nursing homes in The Great Southwest.  Call The Ken Wagner Law Firm at (505) 242-6300.
