Los Angeles ERISA Lawyer
Los Angeles ERISA Long Term Disability Attorneys
A Los Angeles ERISA lawyer has to recognize several factors regarding this federal mandate that affect long term disability cases. First, ERISA preempts state laws. This means that insurance companies must adhere to ERISA stipulations over local Los Angeles or California state rules. Second, claimants typically can expect more protection under ERISA law, which specifically calls for recovery where an insurance company has unjustly denied benefits.
Finally, a lawyer must recognize that federal law doesn't apply to private policies, so these cases must be handled differently. The vast majority of employee-sponsored disability insurance, however, is covered under ERISA
. This gives lawyers an advantage, because the ERISA law was created to protect employees who have been injured on the job or over a long period of time working for a company.
