Gastrointestinal Malpractice


Experienced New Mexico Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Gastrointestinal Malpractice Claims | Appendicitis | Diverticulitis | Anastomosis | Gall Bladder Surgery

When you’re experiencing gastrointestinal issues, life can be miserable. It’s common to seek medical attention for gall bladder problems, appendicitis or diverticulitis. Unfortunately, when medical professionals don’t use reasonable care when treating you, things can get a lot worse. If you or someone you love has experienced pain, discomfort or other distress because of negligence in the treatment of a gastrointestinal problem, Buchanan Law can help.

At Buchanan Law, we have more than two decades of experience handling personal injury claims. Attorney Deena Buchanan suffered a personal injury herself, so she knows the ways that someone else’s negligence can change your life. Deena’ close family member suffered from extreme consequences of treatment for gastrointestinal disorders for many years, and Deena saw how it seriously impacted her life.  She’s also been a defense lawyer in personal injury litigation, so she often anticipates the strategies and tactics insurance company lawyers employ.

An experienced and respected trial attorney, Deena Buchanan has served as lead counsel on several multi-million-dollar personal injury disputes, including wrongful death claims. She earned a strong reputation among clients, colleagues and judges for her ability to remain calm and poised in any legal dispute.

Though Deena has successfully resolved legal disputes in more than 20 states, we concentrate our personal injury practice on claims arising in New Mexico. Deena has been a member of the New Mexico bar for over two decads and makes her home here. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the laws and the courts here, as well as the ways that New Mexico judges generally oversee personal injury disputes. We have offices in Albuquerque and meeting space in Santa Fe, but will meet with you in person anywhere across the state.

We take a different approach to every case, based on the unique facts and circumstances, as well as your goals. We offer a free initial consultation in most personal injury matters. For a private meeting, call Buchanan Law at 505-900-3559 or contact our office online for an appointment.

Protecting Your Rights When You Have Been a Victim of Gastrointestinal Malpractice

We offer comprehensive advocacy to anyone who has experienced malpractice in the treatment of a gastrointestinal condition. We’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the actions of all treating medical personnel and will work closely with expert witnesses, if necessary to prepare and present clear and compelling arguments at trial.

We handle a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions where malpractice may have occurred:

  • Gall bladder issues, including laparoscopic surgery and cholecystectomies
  • Anastomosis, where two sections of intestine or duct need to be surgically reattached
  • Diverticulitis, the inflammation or infection of the pouches that form the intestine wall
  • Appendicitis, where medical professionals have negligently failed to timely diagnose and treat rupture or inflammation of the appendix

We will help you pursue compensation for all losses caused by gastrointestinal malpractice, such as lost income, unreimbursed medical costs, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium or companionship. We take claims involving serious and catastrophic loss, including wrongful death.
