ERISA BENEFITS LAW GROUP
Helping people with ERISA claims for disability and life insurance benefits.
If you have purchased disability insurance you probably did so thinking that if you become disabled, you will receive insurance benefits to protect you from the financial burdens that stem from being unable to work.
When you purchase life insurance you probably feel assured that when you die, your family will receive insurance benefits to protect them from the financial burdens that stem from losing a wage earner in the family.
Much of life and disability insurance is provided through employment. Many people have learned through bitter experience just how important a factor that is. If you are insured through your employment, your rights are governed by ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act). What does that mean?
how does the insurance company win? First, they have a stable of
doctors who are paid to say that you are not disabled. They then get
written reports from these doctors who have never examined you or even seen you.
They “rely” on these reports and ignore the records from your doctors.
Then, they deny your claim. If you sue, the deck is stacked against you
and, without help, you are not likely to win. Because ERISA is so
complicated and technical, many lawyers will not take these cases. But,
there are a few attorneys around the country who are experienced in
this field and they can help level the playing field and improve your
chances of a favorable outcome. Want to know more?
