Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Personal Injury Lawyers

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse | Failure to Monitor | Medication Errors | Failure to Restrain | Bedsores and Ulcers | Dehydration and Malnutrition

When you place a loved one in assisted living or nursing home care, it’s with the expectation that they’ll be well-cared for, that their needs will be met, and that they won’t suffer because of the wrongful acts of others. Unfortunately, as assisted living and nursing home care becomes more and more a business, with an increasing emphasis on profit and the bottom line, many nursing home residents have become victims of neglect and abuse. Buchanan Law can help.

At Buchanan Law, we bring more than 20 years of experience to personal injury victims across New Mexico. Attorney Deena Buchanan suffered a personal injury herself, so she understands the impact it can have on every aspect of your life. She’s also worked for insurance companies, so she knows how defense lawyers prepare their cases. Deena has extensive trial experience in personal injury matters, including a number of catastrophic injury claims and wrongful death lawsuits. She’s highly respected by colleagues, clients and judges for her cool and calm demeanor at any stage of a trial.

Though our principal office is in Albuquerque, we will meet with you in person anywhere in New Mexico. Though Deena has handled legal matters in more than 20 states, we focus our practice in New Mexico. We have a thorough understanding of the laws and courts, and how judges oftentry personal injury claims.

We know from experience that every injury claim is different. We’ll take the time to learn exactly what happened to you, as well as what you need to be made whole again.

We provide a free initial consultation to anyone with a potential personal injury claim. For a private meeting, call our offices at 505-900-3559 or contact us online to arrange an appointment.
