Understanding Disability Claims

Disability laws in the United States

Individuals filing disability claims have a range of options that depend on the details behind their disability. Complex disability laws govern eligibility and the process involved in filing virtually any type of claim. And federal Social Security law comes into play for anyone filing a disability claim in the United States. The disability attorneys at Eric Buchanan & Associates, PLLC have the experience needed to unravel the complexities of disability law to help clients pursue the compensation they need.

Supporting a Range of Disability Claims

Though the law firm of Eric Buchanan & Associates, PLLC, are located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, we serve clients throughout the United States. Our skilled Social Security disability attorneys consider all details to present you with all available options under disability and Social Security law, including the following:

ERISA Long Term Disability

One of the most important benefits under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) benefits is long term disability (LTD) benefits, which can provide an income if you are injured or sick and unable to work. But insurance companies and ERISA administrators often wrongfully deny benefits to people who are disabled—you need a skilled attorney with a thorough understanding of this complex area of the law to fight for the benefits you deserve.

Group Long Term Disability

Another insurance option is a claim against the LTD benefits provided in a group plan from your employer. But insurance companies use every opportunity to protect their bottom line by denying claims. Our team has helped disabled people fight for group long term disability insurance benefits that were wrongfully denied by many insurance companies.

Private Disability Insurance

If you purchased a private disability policy, you naturally expect to be protected if you become disabled. Unfortunately, insurance companies save a lot of money by denying these claims—even if you dutifully paid every premium in full and on time. At the very time you are dealing with a life-changing disability, you should not have to fight to get the disability benefits you were promised. The Tennessee Consumer Protection Act protects disabled individuals by allowing them to recover additional money to compensate them for an insurance company’s bad faith in denying private disability benefits. Our team of attorneys can help you protect your rights, and recover the benefits you are due.

Social Security disability

Anyone who paid enough in Social Security taxes is eligible to file a claim for Social Security disability benefits if they are disabled. With approximately two million people filing disability benefits claims each year, even a minor error can delay a claim or cause it to be denied. When you take your case to an experienced Social Security disability attorney from Eric Buchanan & Associates, PLLC in Tennessee, you can be assured your claim is handled within the complexities of the Social Security laws and your case receives the attention it deserves.
