New Mexico Wrongful Death Attorney

Protecting Your Rights after the Accidental or Wrongful Death of a Loved One

When a family member dies because of the careless or negligent acts of another person, there’s really no way to ever be made whole again. But that doesn’t mean that you don’t experience loss every day, and that you should hold the wrongdoers accountable for their actions. In a wrongful death claim, though, it’s essential to have an experienced and proven lawyer, someone who knows how to get full and fair compensation after a fatal accident.

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we have more than 20 years of experience with personal injury claims. Attorney Buchanan is a highly experienced trial lawyer who has served as lead counsel on multi-million dollar personal injury disputes, including wrongful death claims. She’s earned praise from clients, judges and colleagues in the legal profession for her cool and calm demeanor in any situation.

A personal injury survivor herself, Deena Buchanan knows how any accident can change your life. She’s also worked as defense counsel in personal injury disputes, so she knows the strategies and tactics insurance companies use when responding to a personal injury claim.

We have physical offices in Albuquerque, but can meet with you in person anywhere throughout the state. Deena Buchanan has handled legal controversies in more than 20 states, but has dedicated her personal injury practice to claims arising in New Mexico. She knows the laws and procedures in New Mexico, as well as the court systems and how the different judges view personal injury claims.

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we’ll listen carefully to learn exactly what happened, so that we can tailor our counsel to get the results you want. We offer a free initial consultation to individuals with potential personal injury claims. For a private meeting, call our offices at 505-900-3559 or contact us online.

Our Wrongful Death Practice

We’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your loved one’s accidental death, traveling to the scene, if necessary. We’ll work with expert witnesses, such as accident reconstruction specialists, engineers, medical professionals and financial projections specialists, to prepare and present the strongest arguments for your full financial recovery.

We handle wrongful death claims arising out of any type of accident, including motor vehicle accidents, dangerous and defective products, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect and abuse, slips and falls, trucking accidents, oil field accidents, construction site accidents and explosions. We will help you pursue damages for all your losses, such as:

  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of companionship, guidance, care and instruction
  • Loss of domestic services, such as housekeeping, childcare and home maintenance
  • Any unpaid medical expenses incurred by your loved one before death
  • The reasonable costs of funeral and burial services
