Experienced New Mexico Premises Liability Attorney

Slips, Trips and Falls | Injuries on Residential and Commercial Property | Dangerous Conditions on Real Property

In New Mexico, as in all states, the owner or person in control of residential and commercial property has a duty to maintain the premises so as to minimize the risk of injury to anyone legally visiting the premises. That duty may typically be met by either eliminating the dangerous condition or providing reasonable notice or warnings to the public. When a property owner fails to meet that duty and you suffer injury, you have a right to pursue full and fair compensation.

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we bring more than two decades of hands-on legal experience. A victim of personal injury herself, attorney Deena Buchanan has first-hand experience with the devastating impact an accident can have on every area of your life. She’s also worked as a defense lawyer in high-dollar personal injury claims, so she knows the strategies and tactics insurance companies employ to try to minimize or deny legitimate claims.

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we maintain a physical office in Albuquerque and meeting space in Santa Fe, but we’ll meet with you face-to-face anywhere in the state. Deena Buchanan has handled legal matters in more than 20 states, but we concentrate our personal injury practice on claims arising in New Mexico. We are a local law firm with a thorough understanding of the laws and courts in the Land of Enchantment, as well as the ways that our judges often handle personal injury claims here.

Attorney Buchanan is a highly experienced litigator who has served as lead counsel in many complex, high-stakes matters. She’s tried numerous personal injury claims where the damages were in the millions of dollars, and has successfully tried wrongful death actions.
