ERISA & Disability Laws in California
ERISA, the acronym for the Employee Income Retirement Security Act of 1974, was designed to protect employee rights. That means that all insurance lawsuits concerning long term disability, short term disability, health and life insurance provided by an employer are governed by federal laws, not state laws. When an employee seek the services of a disability insurance lawyer after a claim is denied, it's important to find someone who knows ERISA inside and out.
We have successfully represented people in both ERISA and individual disability cases over the past 18 years. The denial of a disability insurance claim is one of the most financially devastating events that can happen to a disabled person. The reason is that the person who thought ahead and spent his or her money to buy insurance to protect themselves (if they are unfortunate enough to become disabled), sought to protect themselves from the hardship of disability and are not able to do so because the Disability insurance company denies the claim.
The private disability insurance attorneys from Kantor & Kantor, LLP are experts in California state laws for those who have purchased individual policies, but we also specialize in the federal law ERISA that governs employer provided benefits.
In both cases, the need to pursue the reversal of these denied claims in a timely manner is extremely important for the following reasons:
- You may be required to respond to deadlines during the appeal process
- You may be in dire need of money to pay for day-to-day expenses that are currently not covered by your health care policy
- Your condition may be degenerative, and you may quickly forget details that are important to your disability insurance law case
Find the Effective Representation You Need
With effective representation you will be able to present the claim in such a way that the insurer may reverse its decision and pay the claim. Therefore, it is important to deal with the denial of the claim immediately and not wait for the issues to become stale. If the claim is not reversed, yet is supported by your doctors and other evidence, we will sue the insurance company on your behalf. It is important to deal with the denial of a disability claim immediately!
