Big Rigs…Big Danger.

Let’s face it, they are a whole lot bigger than us.  Trucking accidents are serious business and we take each and every one of them very seriously.  How much do you think a typical tractor-trailer weighs?  The answer is about 80,000 pounds.  Now imagine that beast traveling at 65+ mph and the results can be catastrophic if you are clipped in your vehicle!

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says there are about 4,000 fatal crashes each year in the United States.  Many of those occur on the highways of The Great Southwest where truckers travel fast.  The blame for an accident is about 50/50 between motorists and truck drivers, but you know who comes out better in those confrontations!

One of the leading vehicle and truck accident attorneys in The Great Southwest is Albuquerque based.  We are The Ken Wagner Law Firm.  We are dedicated to protecting your rights when you are involved in a Big Rig accident.  Please do not hesitate.  Give us a call as soon as possible.  That’s The Ken Wagner Law Firm at (505) 242-6300.

Misunderstood Wrongful Death.

It is a nebulous concept for most of us.  Even if we are faced with a potential wrongful death case our grief is so palpable that even then the concept is almost undefinable.  IF a death is caused by a person or even a corporation that resulted from an intentional or reckless act, even if it is a relative who causes the event, it may be wrongful death.

Wrongful death cases are not limited to, but include –

1.  Murder
2.  A vehicle accident
3.  Medical malpractice
4.  Prescription drugs
5.  A dangerous product

Wrongful death attorneys are few and far between in the Great Southwest because it takes years of experience to properly try such a case.  There may be no one better at doing so than Ken Wagner of The Ken Wagner Law Firm located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  If you feel that you may have a wrongful death case call The Ken Wagner Law Firm at (505) 242-6300.

What is the Difference Between Medical Malpractice and Medical Negligence?

Medical malpractice (or med mal as it is sometimes known) is a breach of duty by a physician or medical facility.  Medical negligence does not involve intent.  In the case of negligence, the provider has made a mistake and caused unintentional, but REAL harm to the patient with whom they were entrusted.

Here are things that must be shown to prove medical malpractice –

1.  There was a previous relationship between the doctor and the patient.
2.  The doctor’s negligence directly resulted in the injury.
3.  Specific damage was done.
4.  Improper treatment was administered.
5.  No previous warning was given to the patient.

Proving and winning a medical malpractice case is one of the most challenge things that a personal injury attorney firm can do.  The Ken Wagner Law Firm knows what it takes to prove a case in Albuquerque or anywhere in the Great Southwest.  Enter into the process with confidence.  Start by calling The Ken Wagner Law Firm at (505) 242-6300.

No One Understands Burn Accidents More than We Do.

There are more than a million burn injuries a year occurring in America.  One of them may have recently happened to you or loved one.  One of the great tragedies is that about half of all burn injuries happen to children under the age of four.  Those statistics are provided by the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.

There are 1st degree burns that affect just the outer layer of your skin.  Then there are 2nd degree burns.  With these your skin will turn red and pain will be accompanied by blisters that contain a clear fluid.  Then there are the dreaded 3rd and even 4th degree burns.  These will often cause extensive scarring and may require multiple surgeries.

When you believe that you have a case because of a severe burn that you have received you turn to the man who helped win the famous McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case.  He is Ken Wagner of The Ken Wagner Law Firm.  For decades he has been known throughout the Great Southwest as Albuquerque’s premier burn injury attorney.  Call the office today at (505) 242-6300.
