The Higgins Firm will Fight for your Social Security Disability Benefits

You or someone love may have a disability. If so, then you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). While many times these benefits may be difficult to obtain, The Higgins Firm will fight for your Social Security claim. We understand the difficulties of being unable to work and provide for your family. Our experienced and caring Tennessee Social Security disability attorneys want to make sure that you receive the benefits that you deserve.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides that you prove that you are unable to work due to a medical condition. The disability can be a result of a physical or mental condition (or a combination of such conditions), but for SSA to recognize the condition(s) as qualifying for disability, it must be expected to last for at least one year or result in death. Disabled persons or their families may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance. These benefits, once begun, continue as long as the person remains disabled.

Though it may seem a relatively simple process, SSA has historically made applying for SSDI difficult. Failing to meet certain deadlines and complete official paperwork required by the Social Security Administration can drastically increase your wait-time. You may even lose your case due to these failures. Often benefits for legitimate claims are denied—not just once but many times before they are approved. Some legitimate claims are never approved. Some people who apply become discouraged by the long, complicated forms.

What Our Clients Say
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
