Experienced Santa Fe Personal Injury Attorneys
For a smaller city, Santa Fe has some of the most severe crashes in all of New Mexico. From semi-trucks speeding on I-25, to impatient or distracted drivers in heavy traffic on Cerrillos Road or St. Michael’s Drive, to drivers not used to winter driving, we’ve handled many of these kinds of cases. Deena’s husband, Robert Kellahin, is a proud Santa Fe native and they have deep ties to the Santa Fe community.
Being hit due to another driver’s negligence can really disrupt your life, career, and family. Some people suffer from their injuries for years. Sometimes, injuries get worse. In Santa Fe, it can be hard to find a medical provider who will treat you. Some local providers will not treat car accident victims, regardless of who was at fault. We can help.
Many folks who have received treatment are struggling with expensive medical bills and stressful calls from insurance companies. When you are trying to focus on healing and getting your car fixed, the last thing you need to deal with is an insurance adjuster. Many people do not realize that their calls are recorded, and the questions asked by the insurance adjusters can be very confusing to try to make you look like the person at fault. The insurance adjusters are hired to save the insurance company money and quickly dispose of the claim. We handle these calls for our clients so they can focus on recovering.
Insurance law and car accident claims are complex. Even getting a property damage claim settled can be difficult with some companies (we do not charge our clients when we help with this- we do it completely for free when we handle an injury claim). When it comes to car accidents, you need experienced car accident attorneys to help you get all of the compensation you deserve. A car accident attorney can investigate the crash, gather evidence, and either litigate or resolve your claim. Unlike many other car accident attorneys, we get our cases and clients ready for trial from day one.
Call us today to schedule a free consultation with my team. We fight for our clients throughout New Mexico from our Albuquerque office.
Our lawyers have worked for insurance companies in the past, and we know what the defense will argue. While many cases do resolve before a lawsuit is needed, the threat of a trial is a great way to maximize the value of every case.
The experienced car accident lawyers at Buchanan Law can help you get through this process. We have an entire team available to provide support and guidance during every step of the process. We take no up-front money and we do not ask for any costs from our clients until we recover money for them. You pay nothing unless we win your case.
We handle a wide variety of injury cases including:
Common injuries that our clients receive compensation for include:
Back, spine and neck injuries. So often, these injuries start with only mild discomfort at the time of the crash. Adrenaline and stress can mask the body’s recognition of pain from these injuries until hours or even a few days after the crash. It is extremely important that you are seen by a medical provider (ER, Urgent Care, Primary Care) soon after a crash to make sure that you are checked for these injuries.
Brain injuries. Many of our clients have headaches, dizziness, trouble concentrating, memory problems, depression, anxiety, or vision concerns after a crash. Concussions, post-concussion syndrome, and traumatic brain injury may not be noticeable at the time of the crash, but you should be evaluated immediately because they can develop over time into catastrophic injuries that take years to resolve.
Cuts, bruises, scrapes. Many of our clients get hit by an airbag and suffer from cuts and bruises on their face and head. Others have major bruising from a seatbelt, and even at times, can suffer internal injuries.
Broken bones, torn ligaments. We also see clients who suffer from shoulder, wrist, arm, hip and leg injuries in a crash. Particularly in a severe collision, it’s important to pay attention to any pain you may have afterward. Some fractures and torn ligaments aren’t noticeable immediately.
