When your insurance company sends you a payout for your disability insurance, like most people, you assume that check is safe to spend. That’s why it may come as a shock when weeks or even months later the insurance company sends you a letter demanding repayment of some of that money. If this happens to you, you need to contact our ERISA attorneys right away. While there are some cases where the insurance company’s demand for repayment could be valid, in many cases it is an error on their part. If you’ve ever dealt with an insurance company, you know that making them see that error can cost you a lot of time, money, and effort that you might not have. You need to let our ERISA attorneys handle it for you, instead.
Start with a consultation with one of our experienced ERISA lawyers. Our team is based in California, but we’re able to represent clients from across the United States. During your first consultation, our ERISA lawyer will want to hear about the details of your claim, the payments you have received, and how much the insurance company is asking you to pay back. Often, this repayment is due to social security payments, workman’s compensation payouts, or recovery from a third party. Our ERISA attorney can help you determine why the insurance company thinks you owe them money, and if it isn’t valid, help you fight the claim.
There are many reasons for hiring an ERISA lawyer instead of going through this process on your own:
- We know how to fight the insurance companies. Our ERISA lawyers have years of experience taking on big insurance companies for our clients. Their teams of lawyers don’t intimidate us. We know the best way to present your case to get you the most favorable results.
- It could actually help save you money in the long run. If you are hesitant to hire an attorney to fight your claim for you, remember that it could help save you money in the long run. Fighting the insurance companies on your own could result in more legal problems, a greater loss of money, and a lot more cost out of your pocket. Because we’ve done this before for many other clients, we understand how to do it efficiently.
- Insurance law is complicated. Our ERISA attorneys study for years to become well versed on the ins and outs of insurance law. If you are unfamiliar with these legal waters, it’s better to allow an experienced legal team navigate them for you.
- Your time and energy should be focused on other things. If you’ve received disability insurance, it’s because you’ve been injured, gotten ill, or are otherwise unable to work. That means you need to be focusing on your own health and well-being, not fighting insurance companies in your spare time.
