California Employer Provided Disability Insurance ERISA Claims
Los Angeles Disability Insurance Attorneys
Of the various benefits that employers provide, one that many employees get but never want to use is disability insurance. However, if a situation arises in which a medical condition forces an employee to use the disability insurance policy, the expectation is that the claim will be paid promptly. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. Insurance companies frequently deny these claims. If your claim has been delayed, underpaid or outright denied, the lawyers of Donahue & Horrow LLP, can help you.
The vast majority of employer-provided disability insurance policies are governed by the Employees Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). This is an important detail. In order to be effective, a lawyer must understand ERISA vs. non-ERISA insurance. We understand the unique challenges that ERISA presents. More important, we know how to overcome the challenges, helping you get the money you need.
More Than 50 Years of Experience Can Benefit You
Even setting ERISA aside, the process of taking advantage of disability insurance that you paid for requires traversing an intimidating maze of red tape. When you add ERISA into the mix, the maze can seem impenetrable. That is why it is so important to choose an experienced attorney to be your guide. We are not intimidated by the restrictions imposed by ERISA.
Interestingly, ERISA was originally designed to benefit employees. Unfortunately, in their quest to find any possible loophole that will get them out of paying claims, insurance companies have learned how to take advantage of certain aspects of ERISA. One aspect is that you are not allowed to have a jury trial if your insurance company refuses to pay your claim. Thankfully, our experience has benefited employer-sponsored disability insurance policy holders in the Los Angeles area and throughout California. We can help you.
