Truckin’ around The Great Southwest.

With the coming of summer there are more big rigs on the road going faster than ever on the highways of The Great Southwest.  You and/or loved ones are traveling hither and yon in an automobile or on a motorcycle.  Sometimes you have an unfortunate encounter with a fully-loaded 80,000 pound 18-wheeler!

When the dust settles, it is likely that the insurance company representing the tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle has hired what is known as an accident reconstruction expert and has used its “deep pockets” to collect evidence which they will then use to defend the commercial driver and its company.

These seem like overwhelming odds, but they are not!  Not when you call Ken Wagner Law located in Albuquerque and serving the vast area around The Great Southwest.  Ken and his team defend the “little guy” in cases like this.  Tap into their decades of experience with truck accidents by calling Ken Wagner Law at (505) 242-6300.

Get on the Bus Gus…But Be Careful!

Vacation season is coming and more people in The Great Southwest will be traveling by bus than any other time of the year.  It sounds fairly safe, doesn’t it?  Whether you are being transported to the airport or you are out on the road in a Greyhound bus, one thing is probable…you are not fully buckled up as you are in your family vehicle.

Why do bus accidents occur?  Here are some examples –

1.  The driver is not paying attention…even for a second.
2.  The roadway becomes hazardous.
3.  The equipment is defective.
4.  A proper maintenance check was not done prior to leaving.

Whatever the reason, if you are involved in a bus accident on the roadways of The Great Southwest you need to immediately contact Ken Wagner Law of Albuquerque.  The big bus companies will try to settle quickly…be suspicious of that tactic!  Call The Ken Wagner personal injury law firm at (505) 242-6300.

I Trust You…You’re My Insurance Agent.

Those can be famous last words.  Insurance agents are hired (and fired) based on their representation of the agency…not necessarily YOUR best interests.  Whenever you believe that an insurance company is negotiating your claim in bad faith, you should consider taking legal action against that insurance company.

Here are some warning signs of “bad faith” –

1.  Simply denying a claim and giving no good reason
2.  A cursory investigation
3.  Offering way less money than you feel the claim is worth
4.  Outright refusing to pay a valid claim
5.  Making threatening statements against you or a representative of yours

Fight back…insurance companies are supposed to be impartial.  Unfortunately, in America that is not always the case!  If you believe that an insurance company has acted in bad faith anywhere in The Great Southwest, please contact the Ken Wagner Law located in Albuquerque NM.  Their phone number is (505) 242-6300.

What is a Defective Product?

We hear about it all the time, just what does the phrase really mean?  Specifically, it is defined as an imperfection in a product that has a design defect or is considered deficient because of faulty instructions or improper warnings.  It is considered unreasonably dangerous to the consumer as it causes potentially serious harm under normal use.

So, what are some examples of defective products?  Among them are –

1.  Medical devices used at home or in the hospital
2.  Tires…they are supposed to keep us safely rolling along
3.  Equipment used in manufacturing
4.  Vehicles of every type
5.  Even the food or drink that you consume

Defective product law is a highly specialized branch of personal injury law.  When it is practiced by Ken Wagner and his staff located in Albuquerque New Mexico it is something that has been done dozens of times over the decades including the famous McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case.  For vigorous representation in The Great South West call Ken Wagner Law at (505) 242-6300.

What is a Third-Degree Burn?

This is very serious business as third (and even fourth) degree burns are sometimes referred to as “full-thickness” burns.  These types of burns mostly eliminate the epidermis and the dermis, which are the top two layers of skin, and they may affect tissues beneath the skin.  The nerve tissue could be destroyed causing an absence of pain for the most part.

Some of the sources of third-degree burns are –

1.  Liquids…scalding water, etc
2.  Direct exposure to very hot objects
3.  Exposure to some chemicals
4.  Electricity
5.  Open flame

There are a myriad of ways to get severe burns.  In The Great Southwest there is one way to fight back if you have a lawsuit due to someone else’s negligence.  If you or loved one have received a third-degree burn and want to know if you have a case for compensation call the burn injury law office of Ken Wagner Law located in Albuquerque at (505) 242-6300.  Look up the McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case…drop the mic!
