ERISA Experience You Can Rely On.

ERISA Lawyers For Cases Involving Insurance Companies

How High Are The Stakes?

There are a relatively small number of insurance companies and self-insured plans that administer the vast majority of ERISA disability benefits claims. Are there common trends or standard practices that we can identify when litigating such claims? Yes and no.

First, different insurance companies and plans certainly have identifiable trends. However, those trends are continuously changing. Additionally, insurance companies and self-insured disability plans react to the case law and court decisions and trends that may vary from circuit to circuit. Thus, an insurance company may settle many cases in the 9th Circuit, but far fewer in the 8th or 10th circuits, where it perceives its chances of winning are greater.

At ERISA Law Center, we are familiar with the nuances of taking on insurance companies in the 9th Circuit. We handle disability claims for clients throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Hawaii and Nevada. Our office is available by phone 24/7, and Zoom by appointment.
