Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.
If you are working for a company or other employer who provides you with long-term disability benefits, then chances are, there is an ERISA policy in place. In some cases, insurance companies deny claims for disability benefits for many different reasons. However, you may be eligible to file an appeal of your denial and pursue benefits that way.
Receiving a bill should never be the first step in getting help. Our firm knows that when dealing with an ERISA, long term disability or insurance claim, what you need is answers, and we are here to provide them free of charge.
Our firm welcomes telephone calls or the opportunity to visit with you in person to answer any questions you may have. We also provide FREE comprehensive case reviews. There is no obligation to hire us as your ERISA attorney.
Too much is at stake to guess about the best approach and strategy for fighting your denied insurance claim — years and years of financial security.
After spending years representing insurance companies, we don’t guess. We know their playbook and how they work behind the scenes. Using that knowledge, we’ve developed our own Clear Advantage Process for fighting claims.
It’s personally satisfying to use what I’ve learned as an insurance company insider, now for the good — helping families reverse unfair denials of insurance benefits they paid for, need and deserve.
Price McNamara began his law practice in 1990 representing insurance companies.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara founded McNamara Law Offices, where he represents people across the U.S. who are wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance, life insurance, and accidental death insurance benefits, with special focus on ERISA claims and lawsuits.
His is a member of the Louisiana and Texas Bars, with office locations by appointment only in Baton Rouge, Metairie, and Houston. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with his wife and their three children.
“Price showed no fear. The only thing I can use to actively describe what I saw that day in court was someone standing there protecting our family and fighting for them at the same time…he took control of the situation and was truthful.”
“It was a smooth process. I didn’t have to guess about what was going to happen next…I was reassured that he was going to do the right thing. I was reassured that he was looking out for me.”
“He was ready to fight for me…I felt like he had my best interest in mind. It wasn’t just for the paycheck at the end.”
“Price worked for an insurance company in the past and now he’s working against the insurance company so it was because of that we trusted that he knew how an insurance company worked and how to fight them.”
“I feel blessed that I can help turn things around for my clients who have been denied that piece of mind of financial stability and we make sure that the insurance company and the court realize that these are actual people, these are families that are suffering greatly.”

My client’s cause for an ERISA accidental death and dismemberment denial lawsuit began when both Esther and her husband were involved in a tragic head-on collision with an 18-wheeler. This tragic accident resulted in severe injuries to Esther, as well as David’s untimely death.
Our client, a young husband with two children, sustained closed-head brain injury as a result of an automobile accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay, but shortly before trial, agreed to pay the entirety of its insurance policy limits of $2,000,000.
Our client was a floor hand and Jones Act seaman who suffered a shoulder injury while working for Blake Offshore, LLC. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. Blake and its insurance company offered relatively little in settlement, so the case proceeded to trial.
Our client sustained a fractured hip and reduced ability to earn wages in the future as a result of an accident sustained on the offshore drilling rig to which he was assigned. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans.

Just because your insurance company denies you long-term disability benefits once, or even twice, you might still be able to obtain those benefits during the appeal process. Consequently, if your claim has been denied, you should not give up. Instead, you should thoroughly review the denial letter to understand exactly why your claim was denied. If your claim was denied for insufficient medical documentation, for example, you should ensure that all pertinent medical documentation is attached and that it clearly establishes that you are suffering from a long-term condition which prevents you from working. The insurance company’s denial letter will specifically state why your claim was denied and your methods of filing an administrative appeal.
In cases where long-term disability benefits are covered under an employer-sponsored ERISA plan, you must exhaust any and all administrative appeal options prior to pursuing litigation in the federal court system. Once your administrative appeals have been exhausted, you could file a federal ERISA lawsuit against your insurance company.
Federal litigation first involves filing a lawsuit with the federal court. Once the lawsuit has been filed and served on the insurance company, the court will usually set in various deadlines which must be adhered to. Failing to comply with these deadlines could result in a dismissal of the lawsuit or other serious consequences. A San Antonio ERISA disability appeals attorney could help you litigate your case and ensure that all deadlines are satisfied in a timely manner.
ERISA disability appeals and litigation can be complex processes and can take up a significant amount of time. If you are interested in pursuing a disability appeal, it is essential that you have knowledgeable and experienced legal counsel on your side. Attorney J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can help you litigate your federal ERISA case thoroughly through the federal court system.
