Filing an ERISA LTD Lawsuit In Federal Court/ Federal Court Appeal
If your claim for long term disability benefits has been rejected or terminated at the administrative appeal level, filling an ERISA LTD lawsuit in the federal court may be the only recourse that you have. However, there are a few critical points that you should keep in mind before you can take this step. Having an experienced long term disability lawyer providing you with the right representation helps you make the right steps at the right time. Not every lawyer in your state can help you with your LTD case. ERISA long term disability is a complicated area of the law; you must be wise and choose a lawyer who is experienced in ERISA LTD work in order to be able to get the right representation.
Have You Filed an Internal (Administrative) Written Appeal?
This is a crucial step to follow, because without first making an internal appeal, you are not allowed to file a lawsuit in the federal court. It is also important to ensure that you take the advice and guidance of your LTD attorney while making your internal appeal, since it needs to be detailed and supported by all the relevant documents. Most evidence that is not part of this internal appeal may not be allowed to be included in your federal court lawsuit. This is one critical reasons why you should call RamosLaw during the administrative appeal stage.
Filing a Lawsuit After an Administrative Appeal Denial
If your administrative appeal (also called an internal appeal) has been rejected, you can file a lawsuit in Federal Court to contest the denial. These lawsuits involve a great deal of complexity. Insurance companies have highly paid attorneys to fight the legal battle against the disabled claimant. You should also hire an experienced LTD attorney on your side to maximize your chances of winning your case. Fortunately there are lawyers at law firms like RamosLaw who are willing to take these difficult cases on a contingency basis. This means that RamosLaw will not charge you any upfront legal fees unless they are able to win benefits for you.
