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.

Is it Safe?

No, this is not a line from a movie uttered by Laurence Oliver to Dustin Hoffman.  This is all about the products that America uses every day.  The very items that we trust to be safely manufactured and distribute for daily use may be the ones that kill or injure you or a loved one.  It happens every day in this country.

Cars, the tires that move them, the medicines that you take, the medical devices that you use, the toys that your kids play with, the restaurant food that you consume.  These things and much more are products that you trust when you use or consume them.  If something goes horribly wrong because of a manufacturer’s neglect action must be taken.

If you could choose anyone in the country to represent you do you think it might be the attorney who lead the fight in winning the McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case?  There is no more famous product neglect case than this one.  Give me Ken Wagner and his team every time!  If you are anywhere in the Great Southwest call the Albuquerque office right away at (505) 242-6300.

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.
