Wilmington ERISA Attorneys

If you have an insurance policy through your employer, it is likely a group plan. Such insurance plans and benefits are governed under the federal ERISA statute (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act).

If you have exhausted other methods of obtaining the benefits to which you are entitled, it could be time to consider filing an ERISA lawsuit. At Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law, our Wilmington ERISA lawyers handle lawsuits involving group plan employee benefits such as:

  • Disability benefits (short-term and long-term disability)
  • Health insurance benefits
  • Retirement benefits
  • Summary plan benefits for those being laid off
  • Severance packages
  • Life insurance benefits

Effective Counsel For Clients Throughout Delaware

If you are considering filing a lawsuit to recover the benefits you need and deserve, we will guide you through each step. To do so, we must first comply with the strict ERISA rules, timelines and requirements. This includes appealing a denied claim first, a process which could take more than six months. We must make sure we go through each possible step for a nonjudicial remedy before a federal ERISA lawsuit is allowed.

Part of our job prior to initiating the lawsuit is to make sure the claims file is complete and contains the most accurate information possible to support your claim. This is essential because any future lawsuit is decided by a judge and usually is based entirely on the record and the evidence in the claims file.

To fight back for the benefits you have earned and paid for, trust the lawyers at Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law. We are well-versed in ERISA litigation and have successfully represented Delaware clients like you.

In recent years, our employment law practice has expanded, and we now also represent employers throughout our area. Regardless which side we are on, our clients receive our full focus and dedication.
