Are you having trouble getting the disability benefits you deserve? Call on the Lake Jackson disability lawyers at Marc Whitehead & Associates. Our law firm has successfully represented disabled individuals residing in Lake Jackson and throughout Southeast Texas since 1992.
A chronic illness, physical disability or injury such as a back disorder, heart attack, kidney disease, fibromyalgia, or PTSD can ruin one’s ability to earn a living. Unfortunately, most initial claims for disability benefits are denied by insurance companies, as well as by the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
If your claim has been denied, do not accept that your claim is over. Getting a denial is discouraging, but do not give up!
It is your right to fight back by appealing the denial. Our experienced and compassionate team will guide you through the appeals process to obtain the disability benefits you need.
We focus on disability law. Our lawyers have handled disability claims at all levels, and our clients come to us from across Texas and the U.S. with a wide array of disabling medical conditions.
Was your LTD insurance claim denied? Our Lake Jackson disability lawyers can help.
We assist disabled individuals throughout Brazoria County in cases where insurance companies unfairly deny claims for long term disability benefits. There are dozens of insurance providers who insure disability plans. Your LTD insurance coverage may be a policy that:
- you bought from an insurance agent as an individual disability policy
- is under your employer’s group disability benefits plan
If your insurance policy is under your employer’s benefits plan, legal actions to appeal a denied claim are ruled by federal ERISA laws. We are ERISA claim attorneys with extensive knowledge of and experience in ERISA laws and litigation.
Claims under an individual disability insurance policy that you purchased privately will be governed by Texas state contact and bad faith law. Disability claims are routinely denied by a long list of insurance companies. Our Lake Jackson disability lawyers handle cases against all major insurers, and are prepared for the tactics often used to avoid paying benefits.
Our law firm has been successful in winning long-term disability benefits for our clients. Call us for a free case evaluation. We will help you understand why your claim was denied, what your options are, and the best legal strategies for obtaining the benefits you need.
