Houston ERISA Litigation Lawyers

Helping People in Houston, Texas Litigate their ERISA Appeals in Federal Court

Many individuals receive their health benefits, long-term disability benefits, and other insurance benefits under an employer-sponsored ERISA plan. ERISA is an acronym that stands for the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The primary reason for this federal statute was to ensure that employee-insureds were able to obtain the benefits to which they were entitled. Sadly, however, that did not always happen. 

ERISA litigation takes place in the federal court system. However, prior to filing suit against your insurance company, there are certain prerequisites that have to be met. If you have been denied ERISA benefits under an employer-sponsored plan, the knowledgeable Houston ERISA litigation lawyers at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara may be able to assist you. Please contact us online today for more information and to schedule a free case evaluation and legal consultation.

Prerequisites to ERISA Litigation

If your insurance company has denied you benefits under an employer-sponsored ERISA plan, there are certain prerequisites that you must follow prior to initiating litigation against your insurance company. First of all, when your insurance company sends you a denial letter, you are required to exhaust all administrative remedies imposed by your insurance company. 

Specifically, you must make sure that you file your administrative appeal documentation in a timely manner and that you submit all of the requested and relevant documentation. This is the only stage in the appeals process when new documentation is allowed to be introduced. Moreover, you must ensure that your appeal is filed on time, or it will likely be dismissed. 

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

Initiating the ERISA Litigation Process

The ERISA litigation process is initiated by filing a lawsuit against your insurance company in federal court. This is done by filing a formal complaint against the insurance company. The litigation process typically includes a period of discovery, and it typically concludes with a federal court hearing. 

During an appeal hearing, insureds are not permitted to introduce any new medical records or additional documentation beyond what was introduced at the administrative appeal level. Moreover, a federal judge – not a jury – will make a determination about whether you should receive insurance benefits.
