Baytown is a thriving suburb just east of the City of Houston, straight down the Baytown East Freeway. North of Galveston and Trinity Bays, it includes Buffalo Bayou and the San Jacinto River. It’s where one half of the Fred Hartman Bridge lies, crossing the Houston Ship Channel.
More than 85,000 people call Baytown home now, and since moving in, enjoy everything it has to offer. An increase of population has led to an increase in growth, housing, and new business. People from all over the US have discovered what a great place Baytown is to live. It’s the home of Lee College, and now the 46th largest community in Texas.
Many residents work in the refineries, or in industries surrounding it. It’s a diverse, tight-knit community that’s family friendly with a wide range of activities. If you can’t find what you need here, Houston is less than an hour’s drive away.
Having a disability in a place like Baytown can make life even more difficult, despite Houston Metro’s Metrolift public transport program. Instead of living your life, you may be dealing with the difficulties of applying for and getting approved for disability benefits.
If your disability claim was wrongly denied or has been unreasonably delayed, you have options. Baytown long term disability attorney Marc Whitehead staunchly represents claimants who have disputes with their insurers, and works hard to get the best outcome possible for people who are disabled and can’t work
Since insurance companies are private corporations, they often deny valid claims or limit payments to increase their profits. Our disability-specific law firm serves residents in Baytown and throughout Harris County and Chambers County in their fight against the tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying benefits.
Additionally, veterans who have attempted to navigate through the maze of the VA’s disability system may find themselves denied over and over again, or waiting years to get an answer. Medical issues that weren’t a problem when you were in the military, or right after discharge may worsen over time. If you’ve tried to get disability from the VA but were unsuccessful, having an advocate who understands the law and how the VA works will increase your chances of a successful outcome, including a revised ruling.
Whether you are suffering from degenerative disc disease, PTSD, depression, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, chronic pain or another disabling condition, it is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible whether you have a long term disability (LTD) claim, SSDI claim, or VA disability claim

Are You A Baytown Veteran Who’s Been Denied VA Disability Benefits?
The VA’s well-documented backlog has thousands of Texas veterans waiting. . .and waiting. Sometimes for years. If you’ve done the application process yourself and were denied, don’t do anything else until you speak with someone who knows how the VA disability rating process works. Without help, you could lose thousand in back pay that you didn’t know you could get.
Many veterans either give up, or they start the application process over when they receive a denial. But because there isn’t a formal guidebook to getting your application approved, it’s difficult to know what to do and how to do it.
