ERISA Disability Appeals Lawyer in Dallas

Assisting Individuals in Dallas with Bringing an ERISA Disability Benefits Appeal

If you have a disability insurance policy through your employer, the policy is likely covered under ERISA, also known as the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.

Under this federal statute, insurance companies have a strong incentive to deny individuals the disability benefits to which they may be entitled. During an appeal, an insured is not entitled to a trial by jury. Instead, a federal judge decides the outcome, which is very advantageous for insurance companies.

If you are denied disability benefits under an ERISA plan, you should speak with an ERISA disability appeals lawyer in Dallas as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara, our legal team can fight for your right to the benefits you deserve.

Reasons for a Disability Denial

There are many reasons why an insurance company may deny a claim for disability benefits. One common reason is that the claim was not filed in a timely manner, or it did not include all of the required documentation.

In order to prevail in a disability claim, the documentation must show that you are currently suffering from a permanent injury that precludes you from working in any capacity. It is not unusual for a long-term disability claim to be denied at least once. However, the insurance company is required, by law, to give you at least one chance at an appeal.

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

The Appeals Process for a Disability Claim

In the context of disability claims, the appeals process is multifaceted. The first step is to appeal the denial administratively with the insurance company. When the insurance company denies your claim, it is required to send you a letter outlining all of the different reasons for the denial. In your appeal, you must make sure to address all of those concerns, in order to have your best shot at obtaining disability benefits. If you do not comply with the requirements outlined in the denial letter, or if you file your appeal late, it is almost guaranteed that your appeal will be denied again.

Once you have exhausted the insurance company’s administrative appeals process, you may then file a lawsuit in the federal court system naming your insurance company as the defendant. At that time, however, you will not be able to add any documentation to the record. The judge assigned to your case will decide the case based upon all of the documentation that is already in the administrative record. He or she will then make a final decision in your case.
