Thinking of applying for Social Security Disability or SSI benefits? Here some answers to common questions. This will be part of a continuing series of questions and answers on the blog.
A car accident, whether in Knoxville or anywhere in Tennessee, can have devastating consequences. Fatalities can happen in an instant. One moment a person is driving on the Interstate.

Claimants applying for Social Security Disability and SSI can sometimes qualify for benefits due to serious spinal conditions or disorders.

A Kentucky woman was lucky to emerge unscathed following a hit-and-run accident that took place in Knoxville, Tennessee, last week. A witness reported that the car accident took place when a male driver struck a 2011 Audi Q5 on Kingston Pike. The driver then got out of his truck to inspect the damage before proceeding to drive away. The witness immediately pursued the hit-and-run perpetrator and called 911 to alert emergency personnel of the incident. The witness continued his pursuit while officers were on their way.
