- Serious Injury
The Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan focuses on handling serious injury cases including burn injuries, loss of limb injuries, brain damage, spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injury cases. Our experience handling these cases help us to maximize the recovery for those who have been seriously harmed by the negligence of others. Victims who suffer serious injuries as the result of the negligent actions of another endure incredible physical and emotional pain. This pain and suffering places an immeasurable emotional burden on the family of the victim as well.
- Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries severely alter the way of life for the victims who suffer them. The pain and suffering that comes with these injuries is truly immense and can be hard for others to understand. Consult the dedicated Little Rock brain injury attorneys at our law firm today if you or a loved one have been afflicted by one of these tragic injuries.
- Burn Injury
Victims of burn injuries must often endure skin grafts and other reconstructive surgery after their accident. Long after the wounds heal, victims still may have extensive scarring. Additionally, there also comes significant emotional pain and suffering as a result of one of these injuries. Serious injuries demand serious litigation. The pain and suffering after one of these injuries can last a lifetime; victims will need a total compensation figure that will continue to provide for them, long after their accident took place. The experienced Little Rock burn injury attorneys at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan understand that these are trying circumstances and are here to help.
- Child Injury
Young children do not possess the extensive knowledge that their parents do, and dangers in their environment may not be readily apparent to them. In addition to a lack of experience to guide them, children also have a lessened sense of danger and cannot detect situations that may be of imminent concern. The seasoned Little Rock child injury attorneys at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan are well versed in these types of accidents and will relentlessly pursue justice for your family after you child’s accident.
- Construction Accident
Of all industry types, both private and corporate, workers involved in construction incur more non-fatal injuries than any other form of employment. Construction workers regularly endure some of the most dangerous conditions to work in. The very nature of the construction site, the equipment and materials used to erect structures can all pose a serious health risk to those employed there. Here at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan, our expert Little Rock construction accident attorneys understand this dangerous (yet necessary) line of work and have the extensive experience needed to back your claims in court.
- Insurance Claims
After you file a claim with your insurance company, the last thing you need to worry about is if you will actually receive a check for your loss. While there are a few insurance agencies that will pay their policyholders quickly, a majority of them will try everything within their power to deny your rightful claim. Insurance companies make their money by collecting monthly premiums and denying claims — they’re in the business to make money, not pay it out. If your insurance company is engaging in bad faith practices, delaying, or denying your rightful claim then our elite Little Rock insurance claims attorneys can help.
- Medical Malpractice
Countless people place their health and well-being in the hands of doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other medical personnel every day. While most of these providers treat their patients with the best care, some engage in negligent conduct that actually does just the opposite of what the patient needs — their actions cause serious personal injury and even wrongful death. At the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan, our experienced Little Rock medical malpractice attorneys have the track record and knowledge needed to make your claim a success.
- Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect
Nursing home abuse or neglect can be gruesome and hard to fully comprehend. Sometimes the motive behind why the abuse took place is as simple as greed, other times the reasons why can be much more sinister. Nursing home abuse is a cruel act that imparts significant pain, fear, and humiliation to some of society’s most vulnerable people. Elders in the population should be honored and cherished for their contributions to the world; however a large number of them are the victims of nursing home abuse or neglect each day. The experienced Little Rock nursing home abuse attorneys here at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan know that this is likely a very emotionally charged time and that you will need guidance.
- Negligent Security
Property owners are required by law to ensure the reasonable security of patrons on their premises. Unsafe conditions are not allowed to exist at an establishment open to the public as these conditions have the potential to cause a serious injury or wrongful death. A majority of security negligent cases originate from hotels, bars, restaurants, and sporting event locations. When the owners and operators of these establishments fail to take adequate action in ensuring the safety of their guests, serious personal injuries can take place.
- Wrongful Death
The death of a loved one can be one of the hardest things to go through in life. When this unexpected death comes as the result of the negligent actions of another person, then it can be all the more difficult to understand. Emotions often run high and families typically do not know where to turn for help. It is in trying times such as these that you will need expert wrongful death attorneys on your side, representing your family’s best wishes. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person, the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan can help.
- Auto/Car Accident Injury
Automobile accidents involving cars at nearly any speed have the potential to impart serious personal injury to the victims involved. These accidents can occur at any place, at any time — in nearly all cases they take the victim by complete surprise. When the negligent conduct of another driver is the causation of the accident, then coping with what happened can be all the more difficult. Oftentimes people don’t know where to turn or who to contact for help. If you or a loved one has been injured in an automobile accident, the expert Little Rock automobile accident attorneys here at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan can help.
- Bicycle Accident
Almost all serious bicycle accidents occur when a car or truck strikes an unsuspecting cyclist. Due to the small size and lack of safety features, bicycles offer the rider no real protection against automobiles in the event of a collision. In most cases the only protection that a rider has is a reliable helmet, which still cannot compete with the sheer mass of even the smallest of automobiles. At the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan, our experienced Little Rock bicycle accident attorneys have the extensive litigation knowledge needed to make your personal injury case a success.
- Drunk Driver Accident
People who choose to drive while under the influence of alcohol are an incredible risk to those they share the roads with. These drivers engage in negligent conduct the moment they get behind the wheel drunk. In addition to any criminal charges that may be brought against them, drunk drivers who cause accidents can be ordered to pay victims compensation for their injuries — or for the wrongful deaths they cause. Most drivers simply do not know where to turn to for help or guidance after a drunk driver collides with their automobile. In times like these, you’ll want experienced drunk driver accident attorneys on your side representing you and your families in court.
- Motorcycle Accident
Countless riders enjoy the thrill and many other benefits that come with owning and riding a motorcycle in Arkansas each and every day. Unfortunately, motorcycle riding also has a dark side — the threat of a serious motorcycle accident. Riders have virtually no protection, aside from a set of leathers and a helmet, to safeguard them from the injuries they may incur after being struck by another vehicle. The risks that larger automobiles pose to motorcycle riders are significant and should not be taken lightly. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident as the result of another driver’s negligence, let the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan help.
- Truck Accident
Filing a personal injury or wrongful death action against a trucking company can be a daunting task. These large corporate entities have vast resources at their disposal and often have excellent legal counsel of their own on retainer. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a truck accident, the experienced Little Rock truck accident attorneys at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan can help. Our progressive attorneys will provide you with experienced, accurate, and aggressive representation to seek the compensation you need after you suffer an injury or loss.
- Defective Products
Most people buy products under the assumption that they are guaranteed safe and never give a second thought to whether or not they may pose a hazard to themselves or their family. Unfortunately, not all products are made the same and some actually end up injuring or causing the wrongful death of the end user. Victims of a defective product can file a products liability claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, or retailer of said dangerous product. If you or someone close to you has been the victim of a defective product, our aggressive Little Rock defective products attorneys can help.
- Train Accident
While train accidents certainly occur at a less frequent rate than automobile accidents, more people tend to be injured per train accident than those hurt in individual car accidents. With the aid of our top Little Rock train accident attorneys we can pursue a compensation figure for your injury or loss. Not all law offices can take on these railway giants in court as most of them have excellent council on retainer. This fact alone makes many smaller, less experienced firms keep away from these larger cases. Our professional train accident attorneys are no stranger to these cases and will aggressively fight for the justice you deserve.
- FELA Railroad Cases
In 1908, due to large public outcry over railway worker related injuries and deaths, Congress passed the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA). This act holds railroad companies responsible for the on the job injuries and deaths that their employees suffer as a result of negligence. There are many stipulations concerning this statue that need to be established in order to make a claim, and our professional Little Rock FELA railroad accident attorneys can help. The top personal injury and wrongful death attorneys here at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan know all the rules and regulations concerning FELA cases and can provide you with the aggressive representation you will need in court for your injury or loss.
- Whistleblower Cases
Arguably the largest fear people have when coming forward with incriminating information about a company is the fear of retaliation against them. People may be afraid to lose their job and then be unable to adequately provide for their family. Fortunately for you, there are incredibly strict laws in place protecting your rights as a whistleblower in these circumstances. If you have knowledge or evidence of illegal activities a company you work for may be engaging in, seek the service of the professional Little Rock whistleblower attorneys here at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan today. Our expert whistleblower attorneys have the knowledge and experience needed to hold these corporate giants accountable for their actions.
