Pedestrian Accidents | Crosswalk Accidents | Right-of-Way Accidents

If you or someone you love has been hit by a car as a pedestrian, chances are the injuries are severe, regardless of how fast or slow the vehicle was traveling. Statistics indicate that, in four of every five car-pedestrian collisions, the driver is at fault. If you or someone you love has sustained any type of injury as a pedestrian in a motor vehicle accident, you want a knowledgeable and proven lawyer to help you pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses.

At Buchanan Law, we have more than 20 years of experience successfully handling a broad range of personal injury claims, including pedestrian accidents. Attorney Deena Buchanan is a seasoned trial lawyer who has served as lead counsel in many complex legal cases. She’s litigated a number of personal injury claims involving millions of dollars in potential damages, including wrongful death claims. She’s respected by colleagues, clients and judges for her ability to remain calm and composed at all stages of a legal dispute.

A personal injury victim herself, Deena knows how an accident can affect every aspect of your life. She’s also worked as a defense attorney in personal injury litigation, so she knows how to anticipate the strategies and tactics insurance companies will employ to defeat, delay or diminish your claim.

At Buchanan Law, we maintain offices in Albuquerque, but can meet with you face-to-face anywhere across New Mexico. Deena Buchanan has handled legal disputes in more than 20 states, but focuses her personal injury practice in New Mexico. She lives in Albuquerque and has raised her family there.  Her husband is a native New Mexican whose family has been in the Land of Enchantment for many generations. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the culture, laws and courts in New Mexico, as well as how our judges often handle personal injury claims.

We know that every personal injury claim is different, so we’ll take the time to learn exactly what happened, as well as what you need to resolve your claim.
