Time is of the essence – Do not delay filing your ERISA insurance lawsuit. Here are some helpful tips.
Do not delay. There are strict deadlines for filing a ERISA lawsuit. The insurance policy and plan documents may limit this time period, as well as state law. Time is not your friend.
Do not be afraid of filing a lawsuit. It’s your legal right. Yes, it may take time, but it’s the only way to obtain the ERISA insurance benefits you are owed. If you use an attorney, you can be involved as much or as little as you like. Your attorney should make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Look for an experienced law firm. Not every law firm has experience with ERISA insurance claims. Make sure the law firm you choose has experience in dealing with not just your ERISA claim, but also with your medical condition and your insurance company.
Look for a law firm willing to try your case. Although the majority of ERISA lawsuits resolve prior to a trial or judgment, if your case does not, you need to make sure you have a law firm experienced in successfully pursuing an ERISA lawsuit to a final decision.
Location should not matter. You should not limit your choice of an attorney based on whether they are located near you. The most important factor should be experience, followed by your comfort level. With today’s technology, you should have the best of both – experience and comfort.
