The History of Personal Injury Law.

Have you ever thought about it?  Some form of law addressing personal injury has been around literally for thousands of years.  If we go back to Biblical and ancient times, the roots of what are now known as tort law and personal injury law were established.  What was known as the law of retribution meant someone who harmed another was required to repay the person harmed.

Beginning in England in the early 1500’s Common Law prevailed.  In this type of law, which was NOT related to church law, precedents and past rulings determined legal issues.  The courts had the power to interpret law.  The system was, more equitable for those who were not part of the ruling classes.

Even as recently as a century ago personal injury law was not common.  The nature of personal injury law today in the United States and The Great Southwest allows the average person to seek restitution.  Ken Wagner Law in Albuquerque is just such a law firm.  From our family at Ken Wagner Law to yours Happy Holidays and a very prosperous New Year.

Defective Products are out there…Everywhere.

Defective products come in all types such as vehicles, the tires they run on, medicines you take, equipment used in manufacturing, children’s toys, appliances you use every day, food that you eat confidently in a restaurant and yes, even items without proper warnings.  If you don’t believe that, check out The McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case.

Product liability comes in three specific categories –

1.  The design is defective
2.  Poorly manufactured items
3.  Warnings about possible harm

Defective Products and the damage they do are something that should never be tolerated in America today!  Ken Wagner of Ken Wagner Law in Albuquerque knows all about defective products.  He was one of the lead attorneys on The McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case.  Call Ken and his team today to investigate your case in The Great Southwest at (505) 242-6300.
