Social Security Disability · Veterans Benefits · Long Term Disability Help for Texarkana Claimants
Applying for and receiving disability benefits should be a straightforward process, but it is seldom that simple. All too often, valid claims for Social Security Disability, Veterans Disability or Long Term Disability insurance benefits are denied or unreasonably delayed.
If this has happened to you, contact our disability lawyers at Marc Whitehead & Associates. You don’t have to face these challenges alone. Helping the disabled get the benefits they deserve is what we do.
Long Term Disability Claim Denial
Our firm diligently represents Texarkana claimants in cases where insurance companies unfairly deny claims that should be covered. Our disability lawyers have significant experience dealing with insurance companies. We are fully aware of the tactics they use to avoid paying disability benefits. They want you to give in without a fight.
Long-term disability coverage is acquired either by:
- purchasing a private, individual policy
- participating in an employer–provided employee benefits package
If your insurance policy is employer sponsored, legal actions will be regulated by federal ERISA laws. Our ERISA claim attorneys have extensive experience with ERISA laws and litigation.
If your denied claim involves an individual long term disability insurance policy that you purchased through a private insurance broker, your case will be regulated by Texas state contract and bad faith law.
Marc Whitehead & Associates has been particularly successful in winning long-term disability benefits for clients. Allow us to evaluate your case. We will explain to you the reasons your claim was denied, and advise you of your best options for obtaining your rightful benefits.
When your insurance company does not play fair, we will help you fight back. Our firm is excellently equipped to handle the entire process for you. If you have been denied benefits, consult with us at no charge.
Texarkana Social Security Disability (SSD) Claims
Like other types of insurance, Social Security Disability does not always approve your application. Even though you have a valid case, mistakes are often made by either the SSA or the claimant. These errors are frequently corrected on appeal when experienced Social Security Disability lawyers represent you.
If you have been denied SSD benefits, we will examine your claim to determine all possible reasons for denial. Some of the many reasons why your claim may have been denied include
- Incomplete medical record documentation
- The disability was not proven to be severe enough to keep you from working
- You were unable to have ongoing medical treatment (with continuing documentation of your condition)
- Inadequate work history
Marc Whitehead is Board Certified in Social Security Disability Law, and our firm excels in the detailed presentation of medical evidence of physical disabilities and mental impairments.
We are highly successful with cases involving both Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Our disability lawyers can help you overturn an unfavorable decision and maximize your chances of receiving fair benefits.
