Texas ERISA Litigation Attorney 

Assisting Texas Residents with Litigating an ERISA Claim Denial

Since the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 is a federal statute, any litigation pertaining to a claim denial involving an ERISA insurance plan must take place in federal court. Litigating in the federal court system can be a tedious and extremely involved process, and it can take many months – or even years – to resolve. 

If you have been denied benefits under an ERISA plan that is sponsored by your employer, you may have the option of litigating your case in federal court, once certain circumstances have been met. The Texas ERISA litigation attorneys at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara are ready to assist you with litigating your case from beginning to end in the federal court system. Please contact us today for more information and to schedule a free case evaluation and legal consultation.

How Does ERISA Benefit Insurance Companies and Employers?

The first thing to keep in mind about the federal ERISA statute is that it strongly benefits insurance companies and employers. Even though Congress originally enacted this federal statute in 1974 to try and help employees receive the insurance benefits to which they are entitled, the outcomes are oftentimes the opposite. 

When an ERISA case is litigated in the federal court system, the individual who is covered under the ERISA policy is not entitled to a jury trial. Instead, a federal judge will make the final decision in the case about the individual’s entitlement to benefits. Bench trials routinely benefit insurance companies and employers – a fact about which insurance companies are acutely aware.

Litigating an ERISA Case in the Federal Courts

Litigating a federal ERISA case can be a complicated process, and a Texas ERISA litigation lawyer can be extremely helpful if you have decided to litigate your case there. In order for an ERISA case to even arrive in federal court, the insured must have exhausted all administrative appeal remedies provided by the insurance company. 

If the insured elects to appeal a claim denial to the federal court system, the litigation process will begin when the insured files a lawsuit against his or her insurance company in federal court. Once that happens, a summons will be issued by the clerk’s office, and a copy of the lawsuit will need to be formally served on the insurance company – usually through the state insurance commissioner. 

The insurance company will then file a formal answer, and the parties will typically engage in written and oral discovery, offering an opportunity for each side to learn more about the other side’s version of the case. Once the case is set for a hearing in front of a federal judge, the judge will listen to any arguments presented and render a decision. Once a case arrives in federal court, however, the administrative record can no longer be supplemented with additional documentation. 


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