Austin ERISA Appeals Attorney 

Assisting Individuals in Texas with Filing an ERISA Appeal

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act – otherwise known as ERISA – is a federal statute. If you have an employer-sponsored insurance plan, that plan likely falls under the umbrella of the ERISA statute. Claim disputes under an ERISA plan, including appeals, regularly end up in the federal court system. Moreover, in order for you to even be eligible to file an ERISA appeal at the federal level, you must have exhausted all of the administrative appeal requirements with your insurance company. 

If you have exhausted all of the available administrative remedies and are ready to appeal your case, the experienced ERISA appeals attorneys at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can assist you. Our knowledgeable legal team will hold your hand throughout each stage of the appeals process and will ensure that all submissions are filed in a timely manner. Please contact us online today for more information and to schedule a free case evaluation and legal consultation.

What to Prove in an ERISA Appeal

Once all of the administrative appeals have been exhausted at the insurance company level, the insured has the option of appealing the denial to federal court. In order to successfully appeal a claim denial, the appellant must be able to demonstrate the following:

  • That during the pre-litigation phase of the case, one or more errors were made
  • That as a result of those errors, the appellant’s claim was prejudiced and had a material effect on the claim’s outcome

An ERISA appeals lawyer can review the circumstances of your denial in order to come up with a convincing argument on appeal.

Applicable Deadlines

If you are interested in appealing a claim denial in your case, it is important that you seek legal counsel to represent you as early on in the process as possible. The appeal offers an individual his or her last chance to argue and make a claim for benefits. 

Moreover, during an appeal, the appellant will have to use the administrative record from the insurance company’s file. He or she may not introduce new medical records. In most instances, the appellant must file his or her appeal within the 180-day period after the denial date. If the appellant does not file his or her appeal within that 180-day period, the appellant may not be eligible to file a lawsuit against the insurance company in federal court. 

Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.
