Surgical Errors

Helping You Recover Full and Fair Compensation for Surgical Errors

Results-Oriented Medical Malpractice Attorney in New Mexico

When you undergo a surgical procedure, whether it’s elective or in response to a life-threatening condition, you expect, at a minimum, that your health won’t get worse because of carelessness or negligence by a medical professional. Unfortunately, it happens quite often, with the Centers for Disease Control estimating as many as 4,000 surgical errors across the United States every year. If you or someone you love has suffered injury or loss because of surgical negligence, Buchanan Law can help.

At Buchanan Law, we have successfully handled a wide range of personal injury claims for more than 20 years, including medical malpractice injuries. Attorney Deena Buchanan is a seasoned and respected trial lawyer who has been lead counsel on a number of multi-million dollar personal injury cases, including wrongful death actions. She’s earned high praise from clients, judges and opposing counsel for her skills in all stages of litigation.

A personal injury victim herself, attorney Buchanan can empathize with the ways an accident can change your life. She’s been a defense attorney, handling personal injury claims, so she knows how to anticipate the strategies and tactics insurance companies employ.

Though we maintain an office in Albuquerque, we will meet with you face-to-face anywhere in New Mexico. Though Deena has handled legal disputes in more than 20 states, we focus our personal injury practice on claims arising in New Mexico. We have an extensive knowledge and understanding of the laws and procedures in the Land of Enchantment, as well as the court systems and what to expect from local judges.

We approach every case from a unique perspective, taking the time to learn exactly what happened to you, as well as your goals, so that we can customize our counsel to get the outcome you seek. We provide a free initial consultation for most personal injury claims. Call us at 505-900-3559 or contact Buchanan Law online  for an appointment.
