Failure to Diagnose & Misdiagnosis
Failure to Diagnose / Misdiagnosis
Experienced New Mexico Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Failure to Diagnose or Misdiagnosis of Dangerous or Terminal Medical Condition
It’s common knowledge, within the medical profession, that the earlier you can make an accurate diagnosis of a health risk, the more options you’ll have and the greater the likelihood that you’ll have a successful outcome. Unfortunately, far too often, doctors either misdiagnose a condition or fail to diagnose it altogether. One government study estimates that as many as 12 million Americans are misdiagnosed every year. If you or a loved one has suffered needlessly because of a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, Buchanan Law can help.
At Buchanan Law, we have more than two decades of experience handling a broad range of complex claims, including medical malpractice. Attorney Deena Buchanan is a highly respected and successful litigator who has handled many seven-figure personal injury disputes, including wrongful death claims. She’s earned accolades from opposing counsel, as well as judges and clients, for her skills. She takes pride in maintaining calm and focus in all situations.
Deena Buchanan understands the uncertainty and anxiety that accompany a personal injury—she was hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness. She’s also worked as defense counsel in personal injury claims, so she knows how insurance companies prepare their cases.
Though attorney Buchanan has successfully resolved legal claims in more than 20 states, we focus our personal injury practice on claims in the New Mexico courts. We have an intimate knowledge and understanding of the laws and the courts in the Land of Enchantment, as well as the ways judges typically try personal injury cases. We have a physical office in Albuquerque and additional meeting space in Santa Fe, but will travel to meet with you in person anywhere in the state.
We know from experience that every medical malpractice claim is unique. We’ll take the time to learn exactly what happened to you, so that we can tailor our counsel to get the outcome you want. We offer a free initial consultation for most personal injury claims. Contact us online or call our offices at 505-900-3559 to schedule an appointment.
