ERISA and Disability Insurance Law
If you have disability insurance through your job, your case likely falls under a federal law called ERISA. The purpose of disability insurance is to pay you a portion of your salary in the event you are unable to work due to an illness, injury or sickness. Because it is a federal law, our disability insurance lawyers can represent you even if we are not located in your state.
Hiring an experienced disability attorney is important. ERISA is a very complicated area of the law. It requires great in depth knowledge of the rules and regulations that must be followed when handling a claim or appeal. And unfortunately insurance companies violate these rules and regulations every day.
Why Long- Term Disability Appeals are so Important
One of the most important stages in a disability insurance case is the appeal. The appeal stage provides you with the opportunity to build up your case. And you must exhaust all required administrative appeals before you can file a lawsuit.
In the event you have to file a lawsuit, usually the Judge can only consider what is in insurance company’s claim file at the time your appeal was denied. This is why you want to provide as much medical and non-medical evidence, available to you, with your disability appeal.
If your appeal is denied, your next option is to file a lawsuit. If ERISA applies to your disability insurance claim, your lawsuit will be filed in federal court.
