Fighting Against Denials in Louisiana

Unfortunately, ERISA violations can be difficult to bring to court. The way the law is structured gives preference to the insurance companies through whom the employee benefits plans are doled out.

Since ERISA is incredibly complex and nuanced, contact a Louisiana ERISA lawyer who fights tirelessly in support of those wrongfully denied coverage based on their employee benefits package.

Statute of Limitations

When a person has been improperly denied their benefits, they can file a claim in court with the help of an experienced Metairie ERISA attorney. Most ERISA claims do not have a clearly defined statute of limitations. However, if the claim is for a breach of fiduciary duty, it generally has a six-year statute of limitations, meaning the claim must be started within six years of the breach.

Failure to file the appropriate paperwork within the six-year deadline may cause the person to lose the ability to bring the case to court. To avoid this, it may be important to seek the assistance of a knowledgeable ERISA lawyer who can ensure that all deadlines are met.
