The Fort Worth disability attorneys at Marc Whitehead & Associates have come to the rescue of thousands of hard working individuals who have had their claim for disability benefits unfairly denied by a private insurance company, the Social Security Administration (SSA) or the Veterans Administration.
Just because your claim has been denied doesn’t mean you don’t qualify for disability benefits. There are many reasons why your claim was denied. One of the most common is that you simply didn’t provide the necessary information for a claim reviewer to make a decision. Another reason may be that whoever reviewed your case failed to go through your entire record, relying instead on the sole opinion of a company paid doctor.
Let Fort Worth disability attorneys Marc Whitehead & Associates help you get the long term disability benefits, Social Security Disability, or Veterans Disability compensation you deserve. Our knowledge, experience, and dedication to protecting the rights of the disabled are what allow us to be successful in our fight against unjustly denied claims.

Fort Worth Long Term Disability Insurance Denials
Peace of mind. That’s why you purchase a long term disability (LTD) insurance policy to have the peace of mind knowing you’ll be provided for financially in case you become disabled and can no longer work.
However, insurance is big business, and insurance companies are often motivated by profit. Approving claims and paying benefits does not help their bottom line.
Insurance providers are known for delaying claims and using unfair tactics to deny valid, long-term disability benefits. This is true whether you bought your own individual disability policy through a private insurer, or you participate in a group insurance plan provided by employers.
Don’t let them get away this! ERISA, the federal laws that govern group employee LTD benefit plans, gives you the right to appeal an insurance company’s denial.
You should be aware that many denied claims can be overturned on appeal – provided you have the right disability lawyer representing you. Marc Whitehead & Associates know how to deal with the large insurance companies and their attempts to unfairly deny, delay or terminate disability benefits. We’ve taken on the biggest names in the insurance business – the Hartford, Aetna, Prudential, Unum, Liberty Mutual, Cigna and others – and successfully overturned their decisions to deny our clients the disability benefits they rightfully deserved.

Fort Worth Bad Faith Insurance Practices
Has your insurance company refused to investigate your claim, or otherwise refused to deal honestly with you? Denying a claim by resorting to these types of tactics is commonly referred to as insurance bad faith and it’s against the law.
Unfortunately, bad faith insurance practices are all too common, and can be devastating to the unsuspecting policy holder. Bad faith occurs with both short and long term disability insurance claims as well as life insurance denials.
The Fort Worth Insurance Attorneys at Marc Whitehead & Associates can help you get justice when an insurance company acts in bad faith to deny your disability benefits claim, including filing a lawsuit on your behalf in state or federal court.
