Experienced Albuquerque Personal Injury Attorneys
The Albuquerque area sees many serious car crashes. From semi-truck accidents on I-40 and I-25, to impatient or distracted drivers around the “Big I,” to intoxicated drivers, we’ve just about seen it all. Deena Buchanan has practiced in New Mexico since 1998 and is raising her family here in Albuquerque. She has represented hundreds of New Mexicans in her career.
Being hit by a negligent driver can really disrupt your life, work and family. Car crashes often cause injuries that may take years to heal. Sometimes, injuries get worse instead of better. In Albuquerque, it can be hard to find a medical provider who will treat you. Some local providers will not even see patients who have been in a car accident, regardless of who was at fault. We can help through that process.
Even if you are able to get medical treatment, crashes burden you with expensive medical bills and stressful calls from insurance companies. When you are trying to focus on healing and getting your car fixed, the last thing you need is a confusing call from an insurance company pressuring you to give statements or settle for pennies on the dollar. Many people do not realize that these calls are recorded, and the questions asked by the insurance adjusters are meant to confuse people. The insurance adjusters are only there to save the insurance company as much money as possible. The best thing you can do before these phone calls start is to have an attorney who can handle them and protect you.
Insurance law and car accident claims are more complicated than many people think. Even getting a property damage claim approved, can be difficult with some companies. When it comes to car accidents, you need experienced car accident attorneys to help you seek full compensation. A car accident attorney can investigate the crash, gather evidence, and either litigate or resolve your claim. Unlike many other car accident attorneys, we focus on preparing our cases and clients for trial from day one. Our lawyers have worked for insurance companies in the past, and they are ready for what the defense will do from day one. While many cases do resolve before a lawsuit is needed, we know that the threat of a trial is a great way to maximize the value of every case.

The experienced car accident lawyers at Buchanan Law can help you get through this process. We have an entire team available to provide support and guidance during every step of the process. We take no up-front fees and we do not ask for any costs from our clients until we recover money for them. You pay nothing unless we win your case.
We handle a wide variety of injury cases including:
Common injuries that our clients receive compensation for include:
- Back, spine and neck injuries. So often, these injuries start with only mild discomfort at the time of the crash. Adrenaline and stress can mask the body’s recognition of pain from these injuries until hours or even a few days after the crash. It is extremely important that you are seen by a medical provider (ER, Urgent Care, Primary Care) soon after a crash to make sure that you are checked for these injuries.
- Brain injuries. Many of our clients have headaches, dizziness, trouble concentrating, memory problems, depression, anxiety, or vision concerns after a crash. Concussions, post-concussion syndrome, and traumatic brain injury may not be noticeable at the time of the crash, but you should be evaluated immediately because they can develop over time into catastrophic injuries that take years to resolve.
- Cuts, bruises, scrapes. Many of our clients get hit by an airbag and suffer from cuts and bruises on their face and head. Others have major bruising from a seatbelt, and even at times, can suffer internal injuries.
- Broken bones, torn ligaments. We also see clients who suffer from shoulder, wrist, arm, hip and leg injuries in a crash. Particularly in a severe collision, it’s important to pay attention to any pain you may have afterward. Some fractures and torn ligaments aren’t noticeable immediately.
