ERISA litigation begins by filing a lawsuit in the federal court system. Once the lawsuit is filed, it must be served on the opposing party. That individual or entity will then seek legal representation and respond to your complaint.
During federal litigation, the parties often engage in a process known as discovery. During this stage of the litigation, each side asks written questions of the other and may take depositions. All of this is done in order to gain a more clear factual understanding of the other party’s version of the case.
An experienced ERISA litigation attorney in San Antonio can assist you with pursuing litigation in your case and meeting all of the time requirements and deadlines.
In order for you to file an ERISA lawsuit, there must typically be some breach of fiduciary duty by the employer or by a plan administrator. This could occur in cases where the plan administrator does not effectively manage the benefit plan, or where he or she unlawfully denies the plan participants access to benefits. Administrators or employers could also breach a fiduciary duty by threatening to terminate or fire a participant if he or she tries to exercise rights or benefits available to him or her under the ERISA plan.
Finally, a breach of fiduciary duty could occur if the employer or the plan administrator unlawfully tries to misappropriate benefits from the plan.
