How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Our firm seeks to secure prompt fair and just compensation for the wrongly injured.
When healthcare professionals 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.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Because of our concentration in catastrophic injury and medical malpractice cases, we took the step of employing clinically experienced medical professionals, full-time. You may find other law firms who consult with health professionals. You may find some attorneys who also have medical degrees. At Buchanan & Buchanan we employ both qualified and specialized medical professionals who work closely with our experienced legal staff for patients' legal rights.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

At Buchanan and Buchanan we have medical experts on our team who are immediately available, including a former and delighted client who is dedicated to helping other victims of medical negligence and their families.
In addition to employing full-time medical experts, we use cutting edge video to persuasively tell the client story.
Finally, Managing Partner Robert Buchanan is a respected Professor of Medical Malpractice Law and State Bar of Michigan Treasurer.
