Disability Insurance Lawyers

We understand what a difficult time it can be when you become disabled and cannot get your benefits because some bureaucrat has denied your claim. Our attorneys and staff are here to help you protect your rights.

Insurance companies know the law and have attorneys on their side, who will use the law to deny your claim! The dedicated Social Security disability lawyers and disability insurance attorneys at Eric Buchanan and Associates have helped thousands of people fight wrongful denials by insurance companies and the Social Security Administration.

Eric's team of disability attorneys in Chattanooga, Tennessee understand the laws associated with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), bad faith insurance law, contract law, and other areas of the law that will help you win your case but that the insurance company will use against you, if you are unrepresented.

If you have been denied benefits by an insurance company,
you need to know that you are not in good hands, and the insurance company is not on your side.

Long-Term Disability

If you are covered by long-term disability insurance through your job or because you have purchased the coverage privately, you should be able to count on the benefits being there when you need them. Unfortunately, the insurance companies often seek to deny or diminish the benefits they will pay. The disability insurance attorneys on Eric's team fight vigorously for your rights.
