We Open Doors After A Disability Claim Is Denied

Even if you have a legitimate disability, it is not easy to obtain benefits. The government is highly particular when it comes to approving or rejecting disability benefit claims.

In fact, Social Security Disability (SSD) claims are frequently denied at first. Whether denial was due to missing information or an unfair assessment, Dowd & Corrigan, LLC, will find a way to strengthen your chances of getting benefits. We have extensive legal experience, and we are loyal to our clients.

Your Case Is Not Over Yet

A claim denial does not have to be the end of your pursuit of essential disability benefits. Our Omaha-based attorneys are keenly aware of the various ways in which they can help you. If we find an opportunity to recover benefits for you, we will take it.

To give you the best chances of gaining approval of your SSD claim, our team can:

  • File your original application for reconsideration
  • Advocate for you in an administrative hearing
  • File for an appeal through the Appeals Council
  • Represent you in a civil lawsuit through federal court, which is the most advanced option and leads to a final decision
  • Keep you informed and updated on your case

In addition to helping you appeal a denied disability claim, we can help you examine other options for compensation. With extensive knowledge of workers’ compensation claims, personal injury law and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims, our lawyers can approach your situation from multiple angles.
