Houston Veteran's Disability Attorney Marc Whitehead Assists Those Who Served Our Country

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 30, 2009) - Houston attorney Marc Whitehead is personally committed to assisting men and women faced with Veteran's disability claims.

Each year, thousands of veterans who have served in our country's military services suffer from service-connected disabilities. Some are physical in nature, but post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is taking on greater proportions in disability claims. The frightening aspect of this disorder is that while many veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan will seek treatment immediately after their involvement in a traumatic event, many Vietnam veterans are just recognizing the symptoms for the first time.

Accredited Veterans Claim Attorney, Marc Whitehead represents veterans at all levels within the VA disability system. There can be many steps to the process from applying to the Veterans Administration, completing the necessary forms, requesting medical records and submitting the application. If benefits are denied, the appeal process can be very difficult, but Whitehead has the experience to guide a client through the proper channels from the VA Regional Office to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

Houston personal injury attorney Marc Whitehead draws on his personal experience in his desire to help veterans faced with disability claims. He was raised by his uncle, a disabled Veteran with service in the United States Army during WWII as well as the Korean War. Whitehead witnessed the physical toll that his service to his country took upon his body as he grew older and the difficulty his uncle had in receiving his Veterans Disability benefits.

"The men and women who serve our country should not have to fight their own government to receive medical benefits," said Whitehead. "I will protect the rights of veterans seeking disability benefits and make sure they receive the highest standard of medical and psychological care."
