Bay City ERISA Appeals Attorney

Assisting Individuals in Bay City with Appealing a Denied ERISA Disability Claim

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a highly complex area of law in which claim disputes end up in federal court. There are specific procedures involved with appealing a denied ERISA claim. Before filing an ERISA appeal, you must have first exhausted all administrative options under the law, including filing a claim with the insurance company and appealing the denial with the insurance company. 

Once you have gone through all of the required procedures without an adequate result, then you can take your case to a federal appeals court. In federal court, a federal judge ultimately makes the decision in your case.

If you suspect that you may be entitled to file an ERISA appeal in federal court, contact a Bay City ERISA appeals attorney today. Lawyer J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can assist you throughout the entire appeals process. Please contact us online today for more information.

Appealing Wrongfully Denied ERISA Claims

In a federal appeal, the attorney must be able to prove that one or more errors occurred during pre-litigation and that those errors prejudiced the claimant’s case and materially affected the outcome. An experienced Bay City ERISA appeals attorney will prepare a convincing argument as to why his or her client is entitled to an appeal. Once the federal court agrees to hear the appeal, the ERISA appeals attorney will work diligently and effectively to present the client’s case and work toward getting the negative ruling overturned. 

Should I Hire An Attorney for An ERISA Disability Appeal?

When disability benefits under ERISA are denied, claimants are not allowed to immediately file a lawsuit. Instead, they must first appeal the denial decision to the insurance company that issued the denial. When appealing short-term or long-term disability denials, claimants often make the mistake of handling the appeal themselves, which is an irreversible mistake. It is important to understand that an appeal is a claimant’s last chance to present evidence that supports his or her claim to benefits.

If an appeal trial is granted, the claimant will most likely not be allowed to introduce new medical records. Instead, they will need to prove their case with the insurance company’s administrative record. Successful ERISA appeals require that new evidence or arguments for disability be presented. Most denials must be appealed within 180 days from the date of the denial, and the failure to appeal within the specified time-frame could prevent the claimant from ever filing a lawsuit.

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

How Is an Attorney Compensated for An ERISA Appeal?

Most ERISA appeals attorneys work on a contingency or an hourly basis. An attorney hired on a contingency fee basis will only get paid if the attorney wins the case and recovers compensation for his or her client. An attorney that is paid hourly will bill the client hourly for the work performed on a case.
