ERISA

CHICAGO ERISA ATTORNEY PROVIDING ASSISTANCE FOR THOSE DENIED ERISA DISABILITY BENEFITS

spract-img

ERISA is an acronym for the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. It is a federal law designed to regulate employer sponsored benefit plans. For example, any medical, dental or disability insurance provided by your private sector employer is covered by ERISA.

Despite ERISA’s hopes of assisting employees in receiving disability benefits, over time, employers and insurance companies have used the judicial system to make it more difficult for individuals to receive disability benefits. Unlike nearly every other case, individuals bringing a claim are unable to demand a trial by jury. Further, in nearly all ERISA cases, the disabled individual is unable to testify on his or her behalf or have their treating physician explain to the court the severity of his or her impairment. Evidence not submitted during the administrative process is often ignored. A lack of familiarity with these procedural obstacles often leave unrepresented individuals ruing mistakes that may have been avoided.

Consulting a disability attorney early in the disability process is important to increasing your chances of success. ERISA disability claims are regulated by federally implemented claim procedures individuals unfamiliar with the law may not understand.

If you have been denied your disability benefits, Comerford Law Office can assist you to ensure that your claim is presented in the manner most likely to achieve an award of benefits. We offer a FREE CONSULTATION to discuss your claim and assist you in obtaining the disability benefits you deserve.
