ERISA Disability Claims

Disability ClaimForm

Experienced Representation from NY Disability Claims Lawyers

Have You Been Denied Your ERISA Disability Claim?  In 1974, the United States Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) to help ensure that workers had an opportunity to participate in a government-backed retirement pension and disability insurance plan. Unfortunately, workers covered under ERISA plans often struggle with receiving the disability insurance benefits they are entitled to after an injury or sickness. Often, the amount of record-keeping is burdensome, or a minor mistake made on the initial claim form will cause insurmountable confusion.

ERISA was enacted to protect the rights of workers. We fight for your legal rights.

If you have been injured on the job or denied disability insurance benefits under ERISA, the experienced attorneys at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy can help you file and receive the benefits you are entitled to. You don’t have to be afraid of losing too much of your insurance benefits to legal fees either.

Under ERISA, in some cases we may apply to the court to have your insurance company pay a portion of your legal fees; we may simply charge a contingency or flat fee; or some combination of both. The bottom line is, if we don’t collect money for your claim, you won’t pay anything further. It’s only fair.

Denied disability insurance? Fighting large insurance companies alone is tough.

ERISA claims must be paid through a private insurance carrier such as UnumProvident, Colonial Life, The Hartford, Berksire Life, Prudential or New York Life. Insurance companies don’t pay insurance claims without a fight. Put our experience on your side. We will handle everything for you.

Whether you have been injured, have become sick, or have suffered a health problem causing you to be unable to do your job, we can help you fight for your disability benefits. Contact us for a free consultation today. We will discuss the process and what to expect over the next several weeks and months. At E.
