Auto Accident
The Kentucky and Tennessee auto accident lawyers at Hughes & Coleman are sharp, driven, and experienced.
After being injured in a Kentucky or Tennessee auto accident, you're in pain, medical bills are stacking up by the minute, and you're out of work, unable to earn the money you need to afford treatment. What's worse, the accident happened because of another driver's negligence and the insurance company is giving you the runaround.

Social Security Disability
Hughes & Coleman Social Security Disability Attorneys are equiped to handle claims nationwide.
Social Security Disability is an insurance system designed to help with financial hardships throughout life, not just after retirement. If you are unable to work due to a disease or injury, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits regardless of your age. Claims are not always approved but you might have a valid case and still need the help of an attorney. Contact a Hughes & Coleman Social Security Disability lawyer, equipped to handle Social Security Disability claims nationwide. You and your dependent children may be due thousands of dollars in past benefits.

Nursing Home
The nursing home abuse lawyers at Hughes & Coleman cannot reverse the damage inflicted on nursing home residents, but they can make sure that negligent facilities are held liable for the actions or in-actions that caused harm to you or a loved one.
Nursing home abuse is a frightening problem in Kentucky and across the nation. Abuse and neglect can rob patients of their health, dignity, and sometimes even their lives. That is certainly a violation of federal and Kentucky state laws. But it is also a betrayal of trust that can never fully be restored for victims and their families.
