Car Seat Safety.

When the Baby Boomer generation was growing up we did not know about car seats.  Then the Gen-X’rs started having kids and car seats for the little ones not only became smart, but mandatory.  It can be a safe new world as long as you play it safe with kids in cars.  Choosing the right car seat is as important as choosing the correct ride for your growing family.

The right car seat will significantly reduce the chance of serious injury in an accident.  The type of seat depends on such variables as age, size, weight, etc.  If a car seat is 6 or 7 years old it may have expired and one that has been involved in a crash may no longer meet the proper safety standards.  Did you know that?

Above all, not every car seat is created equal.  There may be a flaw in the manufacturing of this particular one.  If your child is ever injured while sitting in one that may be defective, please take immediate legal action.  Contact Albuquerque car accident attorney Ken Wagner.  Ken and his staff serve all of the Great Southwest.  Discover your options by calling (505) 242-6300.

Nursing Home Abuse in the Great Southwest.

It is a painful subject.  Nursing home abuse is an epidemic in this country.  Make no mistake about it, the vast majority of individuals and facilities are first rate and treat their patients like family.  However, the sad truth is about 10% of all residents of nursing homes are mistreated in one way or another.

The first issue is facing the truth.  You are not there to see the up-to-the-minute care that the person who helped raise you to adulthood is getting.  Even speaking with them may not give you a clear picture.  Sometimes you must rely on visual evidence.  The next time that you visit look for scrapes or cuts or any other malformities and start asking questions.

If the answers you receive from both the patient and the staff do not mesh, then it is imperative that you take steps to correct the problem.  Your first action may be to call the office of Ken Wagner.  Ken and his staff have protected nursing home patients in the Great Southwest for decades.  Please don’t wait another day.  Give the Albuquerque office a call at (505) 242-6300.
