With certain types of personal injury, the consequences have the potential to radically change your life for the foreseeable future, or even permanently. Often referred to as “serious and catastrophic” injury, these claims require the skill, knowledge and resources of an attorney with extensive experience handling complex personal injury claims. Buchanan Law can help.

At Buchanan Law, we have successfully handled complex, high-dollar personal injury claims for more than two decades. Attorney Deena Buchanan offers extensive trial experience, and has handled a number of complicated, high-stakes personal injury cases, including wrongful death claims. She’s revered among colleagues, clients and judges for her meticulous preparation and her ability to remain calm and collected throughout tense trial proceedings.

A personal injury victim herself, Deena knows from personal experience the ways that an accident can change your life. She’s also worked as an insurance defense attorney, handling personal injury cases, so she knows how insurance companies prepare for trial.
