Mason Law Firm has experience in representing individuals whose health, disability or life insurance policies fall under the jurisdiction of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
Most health, disability and life insurance policies which are provided by an employer to an employee as a benefit of employment involve employee welfare benefit plans which fall under the jurisdiction of ERISA. In addition to the many administrative hurdles which must be overcome, these cases quite often involve litigation in the Federal Courts due to the laws pertaining to them.
There are time limits to all claims under the ERISA statute, and nearly every stage of the claim is subject to a strict time deadline.
Surprisingly, many disability insurance companies and health insurance companies engage in strategies to deny, rather than promptly pay, legitimate claims. These companies often try to use the complexities of the ERISA law to their procedural advantage. It is our goal to level the playing field by skillfully guiding our clients through the claims process.
