If you have been injured in a car accident, suffered from a slip and fall accident, or have been the victim of a crime, you may be entitled to recovery for your injuries.
Depending on the type of claim, you may be entitled to reimbursement of medical expenses, compensation for future medical treatment, past and future pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of consortium, compensation for physical impairment, and perhaps even punitive damages.
Attempting to negotiate your claim with an insurance company may limit your rights to recovery. Never agree to settle with an insurance company without first seeking the advice of an experienced attorney who has your interests at heart.

Supplemental Security income
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program. SSI is a benefit paid to people who are age 65 or older, blind or disabled, and who have limited income and assets. Disabled children may also qualify for SSI benefits.
To be eligible for SSI benefits, a claimant may not have more than $2,000 in assets, or $3,000 if the claimant is married. Certain assets do not count toward the SSI limit, so it is important that you consult with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney if you feel you may be eligible for SSI benefits. You could potentially also be eligible for SSDI benefits. We can help you understand the difference between SSDI and SSI.
We can help at all stages of the SSI process. If you need help applying for SSI benefits or your application for benefits has been denied, contact Dale Buchanan & Associates. We are a national disability law firm with extensive experience in Social Security Disability law. We have helped countless clients obtain TennCare or SSDI and SSI benefits.
