Wrongful Death…What does it Mean.

We have all heard the term, but what does wrongful death mean exactly?  Here is a dictionary definition of the two-word phrase.  It is a “civil action in which damages are sought against a party for causing a death, typically when criminal action has failed”.  It is a claim against a person who can be held liable for a death.

Usually a wrongful death suit is brought by relatives of the deceased.  Any fatality caused by the wrongful acts of another might result in a wrongful death claim. Many of these claims are based upon death resulting from negligence, for example following a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver, a dangerous roadway or defective vehicle, or even medical malpractice.

This is a very serious issue which must be treated with thoughtful consideration and planning.  Successful attorneys are very difficult to find.  Ken Wagner Law located in Albuquerque has been one of the leading wrongful death law firms in the Great Southwest for decades.  Please call for a consultation at (505) 232-6300.

Defective Products in the Great Southwest.

A mis-labeled product is not confined to our area, obviously.  Americans encounter improperly labeled products on a daily basis.  The manufacturer may “think” that the bottle you are using contains the exact information.  Unfortunately, this is not always the case!  Mistakes are made even with careful scrutiny.

Have you ever heard of the McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case?  Who hasn’t?  In that case, an elderly woman spilled scalding hot coffee on her lap that was not labeled as being potentially dangerous.  Because of this inadequate warning she suffered mightily and spent time in the hospital from her serious burns.

Ken Wagner was an integral part of winning that case for Stella Liebeck.  Today, two plus decades later, he leads a team that vigorously defends people of Albuquerque and the Great Southwest when they have been harmed by a manufacturer’s mistake.  If this applies to you or a loved one call the office of Ken Wagner Law at (505) 232-6300.
