When Can You Litigate?

ERISA stands for the Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1984. It was enacted to protect an employee’s rights to benefits and to prevent employers and plan administrators from interfering with those benefits. For you to be eligible to litigate an ERISA matter, you are first required to exhaust all of your administrative appeal remedies. In some instances, you may be eligible to file up to two administrative appeals in your case. If both of those appeals are denied, you may then be able to file a lawsuit in the federal court system. When you file a lawsuit in federal court, the lawsuit is filed against the insurance company that is responsible for providing long-term disability benefits. A Fort Worth ERISA litigation lawyer can help you determine if you are eligible to file a lawsuit in federal court, and if so, can assist you with filing the case and litigating it.

What is Involved with Filing a Federal Court Lawsuit?

Filing an ERISA lawsuit in federal court ushers in the litigation process. In a federal court lawsuit, the insurance company is the defendant. Once you obtain service on the defendant and defense counsel is appointed, the discovery process of the litigation will begin. Once discovery has been completed, a court proceeding will usually take place. 

Litigation can be time-consuming, but having the right lawyer by your side can make a difference when it comes to obtaining a good result in your case. A Fort Worth ERISA litigation lawyer can assist you throughout the litigation process and help you increase your chances of recovering the benefits that you need.
