ERISA stands for the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. This is federal
law that may apply to claims under short term and long term disability
plans and group policies covering employees. If you have a disability
claim that is or may be governed by ERISA, you will want to seek the help
of an attorney knowledgeable and experienced in ERISA statutory, regulatory
and case law, for a number of reasons.
Receive The Exceptional Legal Counsel You Deserve
Many lawyers shy away from ERISA cases because there is a cap on potential
damages and because one generally has to appeal before one can sue, so
they don't bother learning the law and procedures regarding such cases.
There is a relatively short time for appeal and a number of things that
need to be done in that time. Making a good record is very important,
so it is better to have an attorney help you make a good record in the
first place, on the appeal. Not only may you win your appeal, but your
chances in a lawsuit, if necessary, will be better.
We are not afraid of work. We are knowledgeable about ERISA procedures
and timelines and have experience working with doctors, vocational consultants
and other witnesses and consultants to help gather records and information
supporting our clients’ cases and all of their conditions and restrictions
and have had success overturning many denials and terminations of benefits.
We have helped people disabled by many conditions, including cancer, heart
attack, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, diabetic retinopathy,
diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nephropathy, chronic kidney disease (CKD),
lupus, cerebellar ataxia, stroke, bipolar disorder and major depression
and we have also had success helping people with conditions and restrictions,
the cause(s) of which are unknown and/or the subject of some uncertainty,
such as fibromyalgia. If you have recently had your disability benefits
denied or terminated, contact the Law Offices of Mark E. Hancock.
