ERISA Disability Appeals Attorney in Houston 

Helping Individuals in Houston to File an ERISA Disability Appeal

Many people who work for an employer have disability insurance through an ERISA plan. The good news about the Employee Retirement Income Security Act is that it is in place to protect employees when their employers don’t hold up their end of the agreement. The bad news, however, is that insurance companies routinely deny benefits to their insureds for a variety of reasons, essentially defeating the very purpose of ERISA. 

The first step in the disability appeals process is to exhaust all of the administrative remedies at the insurance company level. When those remedies are not fruitful, and you still do not have the benefits that you deserve, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your insurance company and appeal your benefits denial through the federal court system. 

At the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara, we can review your case and present you with all of the appeal options that you might have available. When our legal team handles your appeal, you can rest assured that we will do everything possible to help you obtain the disability benefits to which you are legally entitled. Please feel free to contact us online today for more information and to schedule a free case evaluation and legal consultation.

Reasons Why Insurance Companies Deny Disability Benefits in the First Place

Your insurance company could deny your disability benefits for a whole host of reasons. First, the insurance company may contend that you have a preexisting medical condition or that your medical condition or illness otherwise excludes you from disability benefits under the specific language of your insurance policy. 

Alternatively, the insurance company may contend that your long-term illness or medical condition does not meet the qualifications for a short or long-term disability under the insurance policy. The insurance company, for example, may argue that your condition does not render you totally disabled and does not preclude you from working in any capacity.

Our Testimonials

Administrative Appeals

Insurance companies are required to have a least one level (and sometimes two levels) of administrative appeals. As part of the administrative appeals process, you will have to follow various time deadlines outlined in your original denial letter. Also, during the administrative appeals process, you must introduce any additional medical records which point to your specific condition and how it impacts your life and your ability to work. Once your case proceeds to federal court, you will not be able to introduce new medical records for consideration by a judge.  

Federal Court Appeals

Once you have exhausted the administrative appeals process to no avail, you could appeal your case to federal court. You would do so by filing a legal complaint against your insurance company. An experienced ERISA disability appeals attorney in Houston could represent you at your appeals hearing. After the hearing takes place, a federal judge will make a decision about whether or not to award you disability benefits. 

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