Contrary to common belief, not every accident or injury attorney in Michigan has courtroom experience. Most Michigan injury attorneys, in fact, rarely step into a courtroom and few have ever tried a case before a jury. Michigan trial lawyers that 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 injury attorneys in Michigan or anywhere in the nation can match our success in the courtroom or our experience with matters involving accidents, serious injuries and medical issues. In short, the Buchanan law firm is 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 a truck, motorcycle or car accident in Michigan or medical malpractice case (such as brain injury, birth trauma, cerebral palsy, birth defects, paralysis, disfigurement, severe burns, or wrongful death) require medical expertise, too. These medical malpractice cases involving medical negligence demand the guidance of a medical doctor from beginning to end.
Yet, other Michigan injury law firms struggle to find a doctor to ask if a valid claim even exists, and then spend your money on a costly "preliminary review." This causes delays in your case. Later, if they learn that you have a good claim and decide to keep the case, many Michigan injury attorneys have incredible difficulty getting qualified doctors to serve as expert witnesses. Many doctors are reluctant to consult with patients (i.e., "plaintiffs") in medical malpractice lawsuits and don't want to interrupt their busy practices to teach medicine to medical malpractice attorneys in Michigan.
The Buchanan & Buchanan law firm in Grand Rapids, Michigan does not have these problems because we speak the right language: medicine. At the Buchanan law firm we understand the medical issues in Michigan personal injury and accident cases. Appropriate cases are initially reviewed internally by our own staff doctor and medical physician, Dr. Beckering, at no cost to you and in much less time than an outside legal review. At the Buchanan law firm in Michigan our unique doctor, nurse, and personal injury attorney team is just one reason that the Buchanan & Buchanan law firm in Grand Rapids has become a national leader in matters of personal injury law. Our Michigan injury law firm is 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, accidents, medicine, and medical issues.

Our Michigan trial lawyers explain the medical issues to the jury using plain language and demonstrate both the physical and financial losses that are caused by violent accidents.
