ERISA Litigation Attorney in El Paso 

Guiding Individuals in El Paso through the ERISA Litigation Process

The Employment Retirement Income Security Act, known as ERISA, is a federal law that was enacted to protect employees and their benefit plans. Every employer that must abide by ERISA should consult with an ERISA lawyer to facilitate the protection of employees and prevent violations. ERISA plans must provide their benefit plan participants with plan information and establish a process for grievances and appeals. 

ERISA plans are managed by fiduciaries that are responsible for day-to-day management and control of the plan’s assets. Under ERISA, any breach in fiduciary duty would enable plan participants to file a lawsuit for the benefits they are owed. If you suspect ERISA has been violated and wish to challenge your insurance company, contact Attorney J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara today.

Penalties for ERISA Violations

Willful fiduciary violations can subject a plan fiduciary to personal liabilities and criminal proceedings. Common penalties for ERISA violations include payments to plan participants, fines, and injunctive relief. Employees that have ERISA regulated benefit plans have the right to sue their employer when certain violations transpire. 

An example of an ERISA violation is when a fiduciary breach occurs. ERISA violations are fully preventable, and when they occur, employers must be held accountable. If an employee suspects that his or her ERISA rights are being violated, the employee should speak with an ERISA litigation attorney. A seasoned attorney will investigate all allegations and provide recommendations and guidance.

When to File an ERISA Lawsuit

ERISA regulates reporting and disclosure, participation and vesting, funding, fiduciary responsibilities, administration and enforcement, the continuation of coverage, and additional standards for group health plans. Pursuant to ERISA, it is illegal for an employer to interfere with an employee’s rights to benefits under their benefits plan. When employers violate ERISA laws, employees may be able to file a lawsuit to recover money that was lost from their benefit plans. Common reasons for filing an ERISA lawsuit are:

  • Breaches of fiduciary duty
  • Plan interpretation issues (i.e., incorrect denial of benefits)
  • Prohibited transactions by a fiduciary 
  • Negligent investments, plan funding, and termination disputes
  • Denial of benefits

A fiduciary may be sued personally if they are found to have willfully violated ERISA. When employers violate ERISA, employees are eligible to seek compensation.

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