TheEmployee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a federal law that was designed to help protect the rights and interests of the participants and beneficiaries of employer-sponsored group benefit plans. Unfortunately, in practice, the big insurance companies have tipped the claim process in their own favor. Many employees and beneficiaries struggle to get the full and fair benefits that they deserve. At The Garner Firm, our dedicated Bryn Mawr ERISA attorney has more than a decade of experience representing current and former employees, their family members, and other plan participants and stakeholders in the full range of ERISA cases.

Understanding ERISA Appeals and ERISA Litigation
If your ERISA claim was denied, it is essential that you seek legal guidance as soon as possible. There are many unique rules and regulations that govern your appeal, and, if one is needed, your lawsuit. The insurance company has a comprehensive understanding of these rules — they know exactly what to do to work the claims procedure to their own financial benefit. You need a Bryn Mawr ERISA litigation attorney who can level the playing field. Some of the key things you need to know about ERISA appeals include the following:
- You must file an internal appeal before filing a lawsuit for a denial of benefits;
- You must include all relevant supplemental evidence with your internal appeal; and
- You only have a limited amount of time, sometimes as little as 60 days, to file an appeal.
Plan participants and beneficiaries deserve a legal advocate who will give their ERISA appeal the fully personalized attention that it deserves. Adam H. Garner is an experienced Pennsylvania ERISA lawyer. He is committed to holding insurers and plan fiduciaries accountable and helping his clients obtain their full benefits.
