Falls from Heights | Falling Objects | Electrocutions | Dangerous or Defective Tools or Machinery | Jobsite Slips and Falls | Negligent Hiring, Training or Monitoring of Workers
It’s commonly known and understood that a construction site is one of the most dangerous places to work. Nonetheless, many of the accidents that occur on jobsites are the result of carelessness or negligence. If you or someone you love has suffered needless injury while working on a construction project, you want an experienced and results-oriented lawyer to protect your rights.
At Buchanan Law, we have more than two decades of high-level practice experience. Attorney Deena Buchanan is a seasoned trial lawyer who has tried multi-million dollar personal injury claims. She’s served as lead counsel in a number of complex, high-stakes disputes, including wrongful death claims. She’s earned praise from clients, colleagues and judges for her poise and composure at every stage of a legal matter.
At Buchanan Law, we have an office in Albuquerque, but are happy to meet with you in person anywhere in the state. Though Deena has handled cases in more than 20 states, we focus our personal injury practice on claims that need to be resolved in New Mexico. We are a local law firm with a comprehensive knowledge of the laws and court systems in the Land of Enchantment, as well as the ways our judges typically oversee personal injury claims here.
Attorney Buchanan offers unique personal experience to victims of personal injury. She’s suffered a personal injury herself, so she knows the impact an accident can have on your life. She’s also been a defense lawyer in personal injury litigation, so she understand the strategies insurance companies use to try to delay, diminish or deny your claim.
We take a different approach with every case, based on the unique facts and circumstances that contributed to your injury, as well as your individualized goals. We’ll listen carefully, so that we can tailor our counsel to get the results you want.
Our Representation in Construction Site Accident Claims
We aggressively fight for the rights of individuals who have been hurt on a construction project, handling claims involving:
- Falls from heights, including ladders, scaffolding, roofs, upper levels, construction elevators, cranes and other devices
- Falling objects, such as beams, trusses, other building materials, tools, debris, elevator cars, ladders and scaffolding
- Dangerous or defective tools, machinery or equipment, including power and hand tools, cranes, ladders and scaffolds
- Electrocutions, including contact with overhead power lines or exposure to unfinished electrical wiring
- Jobsite slips and falls caused by debris, building materials, poorly placed machinery or tools, or missing guardrails or other safety devices
- Negligence in hiring, monitoring or training workers
We’ll conduct a full investigation of the facts of your accident, visiting the jobsite, if necessary. We’ll bring in expert witnesses, if appropriate, to help the jury understand the causes of the accident, how it could have been avoided, the full extent of your injuries, and the potential current and future costs of your injuries.
We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses, from wages and income and unreimbursed medical costs to loss of companionship or consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, and physical pain and suffering. We handle all types of injury claims, from sprains and strains to serious and catastrophic loss. We also handle wrongful death claims arising out of construction accidents.
