Oil Field Accident Injuries in New Mexico

Fires and Explosions| Drilling Rig Collapse | Valve Malfunctions | Electrocutions | Violation of Safety Policies

There are few more dangerous places to work than an oil field-traumatic brain injuries, fractures, concussions, burn injuries and lacerations are far too common. In most instances, those accidents were easily preventable, caused by the carelessness or negligence of another person. If you or someone you love has suffered needless injury in the oil fields in New Mexico, we can help.

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we have helped personal injury victims obtain positive results for more than 20 years. We understand the impact a personal injury can have on every part of your life—attorney Deena Buchanan sustained a personal injury herself because of another person’s wrongful act. Deena has also been on the defense bench for personal injury claims, so she knows the strategies and tactics insurance companies use to try to deny, diminish or delay your claims.

Deena is a well-respected and proven trial attorney who has been lead counsel on several multi-million dollar personal injury cases, including wrongful death actions. She’s revered by clients and respected by judges and other lawyers for her ability to remain calm and poised in any situation.

Attorney Buchanan has handled legal controversies in more than 20 states, but focuses her personal injury practice on disputes arising in New Mexico. She has a comprehensive knowledge of the laws and process in the Land of Opportunity, as well as the courts and how judges handle personal injury claims. We have an office in Albuquerque, but we’ll meet with you face-to-face anywhere in New Mexico.

We offer a free initial consultation in most personal injury cases. To set up an appointment, call our offices at 505-900-3559 or contact us online.
