El Paso ERISA Litigation Attorney 

El Paso ERISA Litigation Attorney 

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

If you receive long-term disability benefits through your employer, chances are that ERISA – otherwise known as The Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1984 – controls the plan. This federal statute sets up minimum guidelines which are to apply to benefit and pension plans for individual employees. 

The individuals at a company who oversee benefit plans must meet certain requirements and follow certain protocols. When they fail to do so, an employee who participates in the plan could begin ERISA litigation by filing a lawsuit in the federal court system. 

Sadly, employee benefits, including long-term disability benefits, are wrongfully denied to employees all the time. When that happens, it is important that you contact an El Paso ERISA litigation attorney as soon as possible. Attorney J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can explain all of your legal rights and options under ERISA and could assist you with litigating your case through the federal court system. Please contact us online today to find out more about how we could help you throughout your ERISA case. 

When Could a Participant File an ERISA Lawsuit?

When an employer unlawfully interferes with an employee’s benefits under a plan, this could amount to a breach of a fiduciary obligation. In those instances, an employee may be eligible to file a lawsuit on that basis. Common bases for beginning ERISA litigation in the federal court system include the following:

  • The employer fails to properly monitor and manage benefit plan assets
  • The employer unlawfully uses plan assets to further its own ends
  • The employer materially misrepresents the number of benefit options for which a particular employee might be eligible under the plan
  • The employer wrongfully attempts to prevent an employee from exercising his or her legal rights under the plan, such as by fining or firing the employee from his or her job
  • The employer unlawfully ends a benefit plan for one of the company’s employees who is still working for the company

Since ERISA is a federal statute, any lawsuit which the employee files must go forward in federal court. Federal court litigation can be complex and daunting, and there are many deadlines in place. Consequently, it is important that you have an El Paso ERISA litigation attorney on your side representing you throughout the process.
