Long Term Disability Laws - Texas Attorney Marc Whitehead

Knowledge of SSD, VA Disability and Long Term Disability Insurance Laws is the Cornerstone of Our Practice.

Disability can pose an insurmountable obstacle to earning a living and providing for your family. Our law firm is dedicated to providing justice to anyone who has been wrongly denied long term disability benefits.

No matter where you live, we can help.

  • If you are struggling with denied Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, we will provide expert help. We are attorneys who are highly trained and experienced in all levels of SSD and SSI claim denials and appeals, up to and including final appeal to federal court.
  • Insurance companies providing private disability insurance strive to protect their assets, not the rights of the policy holders. Unlike the federally run programs for SSD and SSI benefits, they are not under Federal jurisdiction, and so their actions may resemble those of the fox guarding the hen house. When your insurance company acts in bad faith, our knowledge of long term disability laws enables us to justify the compensation you deserve.
  • Group insurance policies fall under federal ERISA law. There are important differences between the actions involved in securing ERISA disability benefits and individual long term disability benefits. Your rights as a policyholder are more restricted. You can bet these insurance companies are hard at work on ways to increase their bottom line, where fewer paid claims equal higher profit. Marc Whitehead & Associates is a highly respected adversary in the battle against big insurance.
  • Many applications for Veterans Disability benefits are denied due to the overwhelming backlog of claims, and VA ratings that claim the disabling condition isn't service connected, existed before service, or isn't severe enough. Our veterans suffer unforgivable frustrations and years of denials and appeals in order to receive disability benefits. This is an injustice that we are passionate about fighting, and we pledge to help disabled veterans every step of the way.
