Litigating Your Claim
Attorney Skilled in ERISA Litigation
FIGHTING WRONGFUL DENIAL OR TERMINATION OF INSURANCE BENEFITS
An ERISA Law Center long-term disability lawyer can file a lawsuit against a disability insurance company for the wrongful denial or termination of benefits. Many of our disability claims clients are justifiably angry with their insurance companies and may see a lawsuit as their only means to obtain redress. If their case falls under ERISA law, they must go through the appeals process before they gain the right to sue.
Some insurance companies are more litigious than others and pursue a strategy of pushing cases toward a court proceeding. In “overpayment” cases, the insurance company may initiate a suit for repayment of benefits already paid, and the disability claimant must defend against this threat.
