Our Firm

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 law firms, we employ experienced medical professionals as members of our team. They work closely with our clients and 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 the Buchanan law firm for a free consultation so we can put our resources to work for you.

THE POWER OF EXPERIENCE

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 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.

“DUE UNTO OTHERS . . .”

Remember, under our country’s laws, each of us has a duty to act with appropriate care toward others. This duty to avoid causing harm applies not only to individuals, but also to corporations. It includes insurers, health systems, hospitals, and doctors.

OUR UNIQUE MEDICAL ADVANTAGE BENEFITS YOU

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. Cases involving medical negligence demand the guidance of medical professionals from beginning to end.

WE REPRESENT DECENT AND HONORABLE PEOPLE

Our attorneys and the people we choose to represent are honorable, and are clear exceptions to all of these tales and distortions of frivolous lawsuits. Because we only accept excellent cases with merit, our opponents tell us that when we file an appearance, they take notice and recognize the matter is soundly-based and serious.

UNDERSTANDING AND DELIVERY

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.

A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT

When these people, companies, or industries act in a careless or callous way, others can be badly hurt. Those who are hurt (and their families) have a fundamental right to pursue legal action, and a civic responsibility to make sure the same wrong does not happen to other innocent people.

People who decide to seek help from our legal system aren’t crybabies. They’re not greedy or litigious. They’re the innocent – sometimes desperate – victims of terrible errors.

These are the people we help in ways that no other law firm can.
