While insurance, disability, and retirement companies have a lot of freedom in drafting their policies and procedures, they still must stay within the bounds of federal law. If they do not, there are several actions, depending on what the grievance is, that you can take to correct the situation such as filing an appeal or taking a matter to federal court with the help of an experienced insurance attorney.
To set up a framework for benefit relations in the workforce and with private insurance companies, Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. The Employee Retirement
Income Security Act, also known as ERISA gives protections to many ensured Americans. However, ERISA laws can be quite complex and as such many employers hire ERISA experts such as an attorney to make sure they are in compliance with these laws.
ERISA laws require insurance plans to:
Additionally, ERISA laws give all plan participants the right to sue for benefits and breaches of fiduciary duty. If a defined benefit plan is stopped, ERISA laws also secure payment of certain benefits through a federally chartered corporation, known as the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC).
Laws that exist without a way to enforce them or an authority to make sure they are being followed are meaningless. Therefore, within the federal ERISA plan itself, parameters are set up for what happens if a plan does not follow ERISA laws.
In fact, there are ERISA lawyers in Georgia who specifically focus on upholding the protections and rights of the insured under ERISA. Whether it be helping with an application, an appeal, or the filing of a federal suit, these attorneys are committed to protecting the rights of the insured.
When you work with a qualified attorney, they join in on a partnership with you. Their goal is to understand your benefit needs and your interpretation of what is going on with your plan administrator. They also seek to understand your specific insurance policy and how Georgia and federal laws impact it.
An experienced attorney is familiar with the tactics used by insurance companies, their plan administrators, and their attorneys and is not afraid to point out injustices according to ERISA and demand justice for you. A Georgia ERISA lawyer can walk you through each step of getting the benefits you rightfully paid for and deserve. Call today to learn more about ERISA insurance legal representation.

I am an attorney. Price represented me, and in a separate suit represented my daughter, for injuries. He moved the cases at lightning speed and obtained maximum recovery. I was grateful and surprised. I would recommend Price to anyone who wants a top-notch attorney who gets results.
I would recommend Mr. Mcnanmara to anyone at any time. He was the best attorney that my family and I came in contact with. About three years ago we had a very tragic, accidental death in our family and the company knew that it was their fault but of course tried passing the buck. Mr.
Price and Sara are great. They helped us in a time of need. Their communication was always spot on and I never felt out of the loop with what was going on with our case.
Price is very professional, honest, and reliable. Whatever he says, he will follow through with the utmost integrity. He will turn over every stone and pays close attention to even the smallest detail. I’m glad I secured his services.
