Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.
ERISA insurance policies offer workers many different types of insurance coverage. When a worker is covered under an insurance policy that his or her employer sponsors, the chances are that the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, otherwise known as ERISA, is controlling. Although this federal statute was initially put in place to safeguard employee benefits, in recent years, the statute often had the opposite effect, encouraging insurance companies to deny coverage and benefits to their insureds.
If you are pursuing benefits under an employer-sponsored ERISA insurance policy, or if your insurance company has denied you the benefits you deserve, it is essential that you retain an experienced lawyer and legal team to handle your case.

“Price worked for an insurance company in the past and now he’s working against the insurance company so it was because of that we trusted that he knew how an insurance company worked and how to fight them.”
“I feel blessed that I can help turn things around for my clients who have been denied that piece of mind of financial stability and we make sure that the insurance company and the court realize that these are actual people, these are families that are suffering greatly.”

Our client, a young husband with two children, sustained closed-head brain injury as a result of an automobile accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay, but shortly before trial, agreed to pay the entirety of its insurance policy limits of $2,000,000.
Our client was a floor hand and Jones Act seaman who suffered a shoulder injury while working for Blake Offshore, LLC. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. Blake and its insurance company offered relatively little in settlement, so the case proceeded to trial.

Employer-sponsored ERISA policies offer their insureds a variety of different benefits. An employer-sponsored ERISA policy may provide benefits for life insurance, health insurance, long or short-term disability insurance, and/or accidental death insurance, to name a few.
Under a policy of insurance, there are insureds and there are beneficiaries. The insured under the policy is the individual who takes out the policy and who pays premiums on a regular monthly or yearly basis. On the other hand, the policy beneficiary is the person who makes a claim against the policy upon the happening of a certain event. For example, the beneficiary under a life insurance policy may be entitled to a payout once the insured passes away.
Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

Despite the original intent of the ERISA statute to benefit employees, employer-sponsored ERISA plans often come with many disadvantages. One of the most significant disadvantages of ERISA is when an insurance company denies you benefits under the policy. Once you exhaust all of the administrative remedies under the policy with the insurance company, you must then file a lawsuit against your insurance company in federal court.
The disadvantage of federal court litigation is that it is long and complex. Moreover, if you choose to litigate your appeal in the federal court system, the judge, rather than a jury of your peers, will decide the outcome of your case. Having an experienced ERISA benefits attorney in San Antonio on your side can go a long way to helping you obtain the result that you desire in federal court.
The knowledgeable legal team at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara will do everything they can to help you obtain the ERISA benefits that you deserve under your policy.
