Providence Long-Term Disability Claim Denial Lawyers
Rhode Island ERISA Litigation
A disabling illness or injury changes your life dramatically. It's shocking to many employees that when they need their disability insurance the most, they discover that the deck is stacked against them and they have few places to turn for help.
With a few exceptions, if your short-term or long-term disability insurance is provided through your employer and you are having difficulty getting your benefits, you will find that your claim is governed by ERISA - the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
ERISA defines the process an employee must use to overturn an unfair claim denial and to force payment of their benefits from an employer-sponsored health or disability insurance plan. It also covers retirement and pension plans. ERISA is a complex law that favors insurance companies. It's an uphill battle for employees and a hard case to win, but it can be done.
At the Law Office of Mark B. Morse, LLC we offer vigorous representation in pursuit of the benefits you are entitled to receive. When decisions are up to a plan administrator who knows virtually nothing about your situation, the stakes are high.
Attorney Mark B. Morse is highly skilled in this area of law and handles all stages of employee benefit/ERISA litigation at the state and appellate level. Mr. Morse is board certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is one of very few attorneys in the state of Rhode Island who handle ERISA litigation and has given legal presentations on this topic.
If you are appealing a claim denial or the termination of benefits, we know how to help. See a few of our successful past ERISA cases, then contact a Providence long-term disability claim denial lawyer at our office.
ERISA and Retirement Benefits
The other type of employee complaint governed by ERISA is retirement benefits. When you were preparing for retirement, a company retirement counselor probably talked to you about the benefits you were supposed to receive. If you think you are not actually receiving the amount you were told, your retirement benefits may have been miscalculated.
This can happen if some income that was supposed to be included in your retirement calculation was not included. It can lead to you receiving less money than you are owed.
Attorney Mark Morse has handled these cases for more than 20 years. He understands the complex financial issues involved in retirement benefit disputes and can effectively bring your case forward in Rhode Island ERISA litigation.
