I Hear the Train a Comin’

With fond memories of Johnny Cash, we wanted you to remember that in a confrontation between a train and whatever you are driving…you lose!  There are about ten thousand train accidents per year in the United States.  Train usage actually continues to grow in the Great Southwest.

There are four main causes of train accidents –

1. A mistake by a human
2. The structure and maintenance of the tracks themselves
3. The very equipment that is on the train
4. The proper or improper functioning of the signals

Train accidents are fairly rare, thank heaven, but when they occur they are usually catastrophic.  If you need aggressive defense against a major hauler with deep pockets you need to hire Ken Wagner and his firm.  With a half-century of experience, The Great Southwest’s train accident attorney wants to hear about your case.  Call the Albuquerque office today at (505) 242-6300.

Deadly Drugs at Nursing Facilities.

I’ll bet that you did not associate a nursing home with the use of “deadly drugs”.  Sure, there are many prescription medications at these facilities, but “deadly”?  In a recently reported case a vigorous 78 year old man was diagnosed with dementia.  Without the family’s consent, he was given drugs that were known to be fatal in older patients.

Once this story came to light people from all over America came out of the woodwork telling stories of their loved ones being given psychotropic drugs without consent.  Wrongful death suits have begun cropping up nationwide against nursing facilities who would administer such drugs without the knowledge of the immediate family.

If any of this sounds familiar you must take action to protect your loved one.  In the Great Southwest the man and the law firm to contact is Ken Wagner Law.  Attorney Wagner is Albuquerque’s nursing home drug misuse lawyer.  He and his team will begin an immediate investigation into your case.  Just call (505) 242-6300.

Truckin’ into the Summer of ’17.

The Grateful Dead just celebrated their 50th anniversary and America has been truckin’ for over a century.  Truck safety has certainly improved over the decades, but on the freeways of the Great Southwest there are still some trucking accidents that need aggressive representation for those on the wrong end.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) keeps track of such things.  In the most recent complete reporting year of 2014 nearly 4000 large trucks were involved in fatal accidents.  In a one-year period leading up to that, the number of large trucks involved in injury accidents rose by over 20%.  It seems to be getting worse!

So, what is going on here?  The truth is, we live in an area where big trucks drive fast and not always safely.  If you or a loved one was injured in an accident involving a truck of over 10,000 pounds you know who to call - The office of Ken Wagner Law in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Ken and his staff is the Great Southwest’s truck accident law firm (505) 242-6300.
