People, whether individuals or families, purchase health insurance to protect against unexpected illnesses or accidents. We represent clients whose insurance companies have failed or refused to pay claims arising out of Health, Disability, including Long-Term Disability and Short-Term Disability claims.
It is essential first to determine and understand whether your health or life insurance claim is subject to ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act) which is generally secured through an employer-based plan or obtained independently from a private insurance carrier. If a person’s health, short term disability, long term disability, or life insurance is provided through a private employer, any future claims are typically subject to federal law. Remedies in these type cases may be limited.
The Dallas ERISA claims attorneys of Smith Kendall, PLLC can help you with your health insurance claims against the carrier. If you have any questions regarding the handling of your insurance claim by your insurance company, call us at 214-361-6124 or toll free at the number above. You will not be charged for the initial consultation. Most of our cases are handled on a contingency basis in which the firm fronts all expenses so that our clients are generally not responsible for expenses unless and until the case is settled or otherwise resolved in the client’s favor.
