Meaningful Ways to Celebrate Christmas 2020.

After nearly a year full of challenges and uncertainty, we are still very excited about this holiday season. Of course, the pandemic is far from over—and it’s been a trying year for many, so things might look a little different this year, and that’s fine.. Rather than carrying on as normal, this Christmas is a great time to mix things up.

If your Christmas dinner has fewer guests this year, why not try a delicious new menu? Also, if your holiday budget is tight this year, don’t stress over the gifts! Turn gifts and stockings into a fun game by drawing names so that each person only has to buy one gift. Here is an idea…turn your focus toward spending more quality time with your family.

Holiday time can still be precious and meaningful in Albuquerque and throughout The Great Southwest. Here at The Ken Wagner Law Firm we intend to spend quality time with our families this year and hope that you do the same regardless of where you live. From Ken and his staff to all of our friends in The Great Southwest Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.

It could have been caused by a number of things such as –


1.  An explosion from a gas line.

2.  Accidents involving electricity.

3.  Some horrible industrial accident while on the job.

4.  Even, of course scalding hot liquid.

They Always Should Act in Good Faith…BUT.

Your insurance company is supposed to act in good faith. After all, you have paid a lot of money to ensure your best interests if you ever need them. Sometimes, you may believe that they have acted in bad faith. How do you prove that suspicion? A bad faith inquiry is focused on specific facts and the circumstances that apply. It varies in each case.

You may be entitled to any or all of the following –

1.  What your insurance company is deemed to “should have” paid out.

2.  Damages that were caused while the insurance company was shirking their responsibility.

3.  Emotional distress compensation.

4.  Punitive damages if they acted intentionally.

You may very well need an insurance claims attorney to defend your rights. That is where The Ken Wagner Law Firm comes in. They may be just who you are looking for to file the claim necessary in your Great Southwest bad faith insurance lawsuit. Look them up at then call their ABQ office at (505) 242-6300.

Construction Season is Winding Down.

Construction season in Albuquerque is mostly behind us now. How did it treat the construction worker in your life? Was he or she injured on the job this summer? Haven’t we had enough challenges this year? If your loved one has been injured while working on a scaffold, operating heavy machinery, falls or falling objects and many other ways…you may have a claim!

Comparatively speaking construction jobs are more dangerous than other related professions. Construction workers are a time and half more likely to incur mishaps than the overall average for all workers. Of any random 100,000 workers in this industry about 15 will die per year. Only agriculture and mining are more dangerous!

What Constitutes a Defective Product?

Throughout the USA defective products cause thousands of injuries every year. It runs the gamut from recalled vehicles due to defective airbags, etc. to recalled pieces of furniture due to toppling risks. Just too many products that contain hazardous defects are sold to the American public who put their trust in the manufacturer!


We have discovered that the three different types of product liability claims are –

  1. The defective design of the product.
  2. An improper warning claim. The manufacturer has a legal duty to warn the public.
  3. Here is the most common…the original design of the product is completely safe, but something happened during the manufacturing process to make the product unsafe.

A Defective Product lawsuit is one that should be trusted to those that have years of experience. Here at The Ken Wagner Law Firm we have dealt with defective product claims for decades in The Great Southwest. Speaking of warning labels, our founder was one of the lead attorneys in the McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case. Call The Ken Wagner Law Firm of Albuquerque if you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product at (505) 242-6300.

How Soon is Too Soon to Act.

With some things in life we are given time to carefully consider our options. The pandemic is perhaps one of those times. When you are involved in an auto accident the time to act is immediately! Intellectually you already know this, but sometimes the shock and awe of the situation may overwhelm you.

Here is what happens…more quickly than you can imagine, insurance companies send out investigators, accident reconstruction experts and other professionals to start to defend the case that they will prepare to bring against the driver they have insured. The insurance company will spend big bucks and plenty of time to properly present its case.

What have you done in the interim? If the answer is “contact an auto accident injury attorney”, then you have made the right call! If that accident happens anywhere in The Great Southwest the right call is probably made to The Ken Wagner Law Firm of Albuquerque. They bring a half-century of experience to bear. Call The Ken Wagner Law Firm at (505) 242-6300.

Get Out and Get Some Fresh Air.

That is America’s mantra these summer days, but if your brand of enjoyment is hopping on your Harley please be safe.

And they are three times more likely to sustain a vital injury.

We know that –

1.  Head injuries are the leading cause of injury and death involving motorcycle crashes.
2.  The risk of incurring a traumatic brain injury is lowered by 2/3rds with a helmet.
3.  A motorcycle claim generally comes with complicated insurance claims.
