Dallas ERISA Litigation Lawyer 

Assisting Individuals in Dallas, Texas with Pursuing ERISA Litigation in the Federal Court System

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1984, more commonly known as ERISA, is a federal statute that governs most employer-sponsored long term disability insurance plans. 

At the time it was enacted, the primary purpose of the ERISA statute was to prevent plan administrators and employers from unduly interfering with employees’ rights to benefits. In some instances, despite filing a proper claim, the insurance company may deny an application for benefits under an employer-sponsored ERISA plan. When that happens, you may have several appeal options available to you, including the option of litigation.

If your claim for long-term disability benefits under an ERISA plan has been denied, and you wish to explore your appeal options, it is essential that you have a knowledgeable and skilled Dallas ERISA litigation lawyer representing you. Attorney J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can guide you through each step of the process. Please contact us online today to discuss your options.

Administrative Appeals

If your claim for long-term disability benefits has been denied, prior to litigating your case in the court system, you must first exhaust the administrative appeals process. Depending upon the circumstances of your case, and the specific insurance policy involved, you may be eligible to file one or two administrative appeals. In the event both administrative appeals are denied by your insurance company, then you may be able to pursue ERISA litigation in federal court.

An experienced Dallas ERISA litigation lawyer can assist you with filing administrative appeals, and if they are unsuccessful, can pursue litigation in the federal court system on your behalf. 

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

Litigating an ERISA Case

ERISA litigation involves filing a lawsuit against your disability insurance provider. Given that ERISA is a federal statute, the lawsuit would be filed in the federal court system. The state court system would not be involved in the process.

Once a suit is filed in federal court, the defendant insurance company will have the opportunity to file an Answer to your lawsuit. Then, the discovery phase of the litigation typically begins. During this stage of the litigation process, both sides are entitled to recover documents and gather additional factual information from the other side.

During the litigation stage, the case could resolve by way of a settlement. However, if the case does not settle, it will likely go to trial. ERISA trials are bench trials, which means that a federal judge will decide the ultimate outcome of the case, rather than a federal jury.

A knowledgeable Dallas ERISA litigation attorney can review your administrative appeal denial with you and help you determine whether litigation might be a favorable option in your case. If you do decide to litigate the case, your lawyer can file a lawsuit and assist you throughout the entire litigation process, including at trial.
