Representing People With

Social Security Disability, Veterans Benefits

and Injury and Accident Claims

What we do

Veterans Benefits, Social Security Disability and Personal Injury

If you suffer from a physical or mental disability, you may feel overwhelmed by your circumstances. You may have no income to meet mounting medical bills and everyday living expenses, such as the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter. Your situation can quickly grow worse when your claim for disability benefits is denied or held up by a process that can be frustrating and difficult to understand.

At the Maine disability benefits law firm of Jackson & MacNichol, we can help take that weight off your shoulders.

For more than three decades, our disability benefits lawyers have advised and represented clients seeking Social Security disability benefits and veterans’ benefits throughout Maine, including Portland, South Portland, Auburn, Augusta, Bangor, Biddeford, Saco, Lewiston, Rockland, and Waterville, as well as disability claimants in the New England states of New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

We believe in providing professional and compassionate legal services. We pay close attention to each client’s unique story and we work hard to secure the disability benefits they deserve. Until we win your claim, we will not collect a fee.

Free, Confidential and Honest Evaluations

Whether you are a New England resident seeking Social Security disability benefits or a former member of the military pursuing veterans’ benefits, we can use our initial consultation with you to discuss the different types of benefits we may pursue on your behalf.

  • Social Security disability claimants may be eligible to receive either Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), which is available if you are an insured person who has become disabled. They may also be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which pays benefits to people based on financial need.
  • Veterans’ benefits claimants may be eligible for disability compensation, which is granted to those who were injured or became ill as a result of their military service, or individual unemployability compensation, which is available for vets who cannot maintain substantially gainful employment as a result of a service-connected disability. In certain cases, a veterans’ spouse and dependents may be eligible to receive compensation.

In order to fully review your Social Security disability or veterans’ benefits case, we will need to investigate your case, including your education, medical, military and employment records. Because of our extensive experience, we will know what to look for in these records in order to identify your claim and present your case to an administrative law judge or appeals panel.

Securing the Benefits You Deserve

Filing a claim for Social Security disability benefits or veterans’ benefits can be both a routine and highly complex process. We will make sure that any applications, appeals or other documents you must file are done so accurately and thoroughly. We also will draw on our oral and written advocacy skills and our expertise with disability law to develop your case. You can count on us to aggressively and passionately pursue the benefits you deserve.

Although the claims process can be lengthy and confusing at times, we will make sure to keep you informed along the way and prepared for every step of the process. Our disability benefits lawyers and staff make themselves readily accessible to answer any questions you might have.

Once your claim is approved, difficulties may arise with payments from the Social Security Administration or Veterans Administration. We can make sure you are timely and fully paid and work with you to recover any retroactive payments you are entitled to receive.
