Social Security Disability

Speak with a Social Security Lawyer in New Bedford, Fall River or Taunton, Massachusetts when you are Seeking Social Security Disability

If you are disabled and unable to work, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Getting approved for disability is extremely difficult as the process is complex.  The application process can be confusing and daunting, so hiring an experienced Social Security Lawyer like Dussault & Gomes PC will increase your chances of approval.

We will help you navigate the Social Security process including:

• Filing an Application
• Request for Reconsideration
• Request for Hearing
• Disability Hearing
• Appeal of Denied Benefits

Unfortunately, most disabled applicants are initially rejected as applications are carefully screened in attempts to prevent fraud.  This means that many valid claims will be rejected, and this denies deserving applicants much needed benefits.

Increase your chances of being approved for disability by contacting the Law Offices of Dussault & Gomes.  You are entitled to benefits and our attorneys will work diligently to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
