Marc Whitehead & Associates, Attorneys at Law, L.L.P. is a national law firm dedicated to fighting for disabled workers and veterans aggressively and professionally with all our expertise. We strive to promote justice and human welfare. When we see something that’s wrong, we fight it; when we see something that right, we fight for it!
To this end, we recently launched our new website, DisabilityDenials.com. The site is dedicated to educating the public on our services related to Long Term Disability Insurance Claims (including ERISA), Social Security Disability Claims and Veterans Disability Law. In the coming weeks and months, we intend to explore on this blog numerous topics relevant to individuals and veterans seeking information on how to win or reverse a denial of their disability benefit claim.
Upcoming topics include social security rules regarding specific diseases, such as depression, bi-polar disorder, fibromyalgia, heart disease, Lupus, Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, spinal injury and disease, diabetes and neuropathy, cancer and HIV/AIDS.
We also plan a series on long term disability insurance policies, discussing issues such as pre-existing conditions exclusions, ERISA rules and regulations, “own occupation” vs. “any occupation” policy interpretations, federal litigation, attorney fees and specific issues dealing with the major insurance companies such as UNUM, MetLife, Cigna, Life Insurance Company of North America and The Standard.
Finally, we intend to focus of issues related to Veteran’s disability claims, such as service connection, ratings claims, total unemployablity (TDIU), VA Compensation and Widow’s claims, Agent Orange exposure, post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) and the VA appeals process and bureaucracy. Stay tuned.
