Disability Lawyers Handling Social Security and Veterans' Claims, With Offices in Omaha and Lincoln
When you are person living with a physical or mental disability, just getting through your life on a day-to-day basis can be a struggle. You should not have to worry about paying your bills and feeding your family, and you certainly shouldn't have to worry about a confusing application for disability benfits or how to appeal a Social Security or VA denial. Going to the local SSA or VA office means having to wait in long lines just to talk to someone. When you call on the phone, there’s another long wait before your call is answered. Improve the chances of your disability application or appeal being approved by utilizing our Veterans and Social Security disability attorneys.
Applying For Disability Benefits Can Be Exhausting & Confusing. Let Our Father and Son Team Represent You.

Working with his son Sean Cuddigan and fellow attorney Phil Martin, attorney Tim Cuddigan has been strictly devoted to helping thousands of people across Eastern Nebraska and Southwestern Iowa with their Social Security disability and Veterans disability needs. We stand by your side from your initial application all the way to federal court—or we can jump in if you tried to go it alone and feel you finally need some legal assistance.
“How Can a Disability Attorney Help My Case?”
If you've been looking around for the disability lawyer that seems right for you, you may have noticed that some firms don't feel as personal as others...and that's because they aren't. There are many disability websites that will collect your information and refer your case to subscribing attorneys that pay for leads. Someone from that national firm will fly out to Nebraska on the day of your hearing, and you will never meet with him in person before that. The worst part? They will almost always send a “representative”—not an attorney. That is because you do not have to be licensed to practice law in order to appear in front of the Social Security Administration or the VA.
Do you really want to entrust one of the most important days of your life to someone you've never met, who isn't legally licensed to practice law?
Cuddigan Law does not have a call center. From the very beginning, you are considered part of our family and we will look forward to meeting with you face-to-face on a regular basis.
Applying for disability benefits isn't as easy as filling out a few forms and then receiving your first check. The system is complex and confusing, and the rules are different for Social Security disability than they are for disability for Veterans. Because of that, and overwhelming number of initial applications are denied. The tremendous backlog of VA benefits applications has made national headlines lately, and two out of three first-time Social Security disability claims are denied. We understand how the entire process works and can determine which disability program you may qualify for, fill out your application, gather supporting medical records, work with your doctor and present the best case possible to the Social Security Administration or the VA.

Many railroad workers perform hard labor, suffer long hours, and are at higher risk of injury than many employees in other occupations. For this reason, the Railroad Retirement Act provides disability payments for railroad employees who are unable to work due to a serious injury or complete disability. While these benefits could potentially provide injured workers with regular income, employees will have to meet a number of work and age requirements in order to receive their monthly benefits. Our attorneys help explain the railroad disability eligibility and injury requirements to get disabled workers on the path to compensation.
