Welcome to Buchanan & Buchanan, a personal injury law firm that represents people, not insurance companies. We have a well-earned reputation for providing aggressive and high quality representation to victims of catastrophic injuries because we know both injury law and medicine. Unlike other Michigan law firms, we employ an experienced medical doctor (a former hospital chief of staff) and a registered nurse as members of our team. They work closely with our clients and personal injury attorneys, from the initial interview through settlement or trial, overseeing medical issues, advising on strategy, and selecting top-notch medical experts that are critical to an excellent outcome.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, please contact us for a free consultation so we can put our resources to work for you.
Contrary to common belief, not every attorney has courtroom experience. Most attorneys, in fact, rarely step into a courtroom and few have ever tried a case before a jury. Those who have been successful in court, and discerning in the cases they will accept and handle, have more clout in negotiations and more credibility with judges, opposing lawyers, insurance companies, and juries.
Few attorneys anywhere in the nation can match our success in the courtroom or our experience with matters involving serious injuries and medical issues. In short, we are prepared, tested, and proven.
Serious injury and death cases require the utmost in attorney skill and experience. But that's just half the equation. Catastrophic cases from an accident or medical malpractice (such as brain injury, birth trauma, paralysis, disfigurement, severe burns, or wrongful death) require medical expertise, too. These cases demand the guidance of a medical doctor from beginning to end.
Yet, other law firms struggle to find a doctor to ask if a claim even exists, and then spend your money for a costly "preliminary review." This causes delay in your case. Later, if they learn it is a good claim and decide to keep the case, these attorneys have incredible difficulty getting qualified doctors to help. Many doctors are reluctant to consult with patients (i.e., "plaintiffs") in lawsuits and don't want to interrupt their busy practices to teach medicine to attorneys.
Buchanan & Buchanan doesn't have these problems because we speak the right language: medicine. We understand the medical issues in personal injury cases. Appropriate cases are initially reviewed internally by our own medical physician, Dr. Beckering, at no cost to you and in much less time than an outside review. This unique doctor, nurse, and attorney team is just one reason Buchanan & Buchanan has become a national leader in matters of personal injury. We are the one place to turn for outstanding legal counsel, with a powerful medical advantage.
Appearing in court and actually trying cases has also taught us a lot about jurors. We've learned that jurors can be quickly bored by legal arguments and hopelessly confused about injuries, medicine, and medical issues.
As a result, we've learned to captivate and hold the attention and concern of juries using the latest communication technology. We explain the medical issues to them in plain language and demonstrate the losses and disabling injuries. And, we speak to jurors as caring and intelligent human beings who make the decisions that will forever affect our clients' lives.
We've learned not only to build powerful cases and arrive always exceedingly well prepared, but to also present the cases in the clear, compelling manner they deserve.
Because ultimately what matters isn't what an attorney, doctor, or expert says. It's what jurors comprehend – and believe.
