Marcus & Shapira has broad experience representing both insurers and insureds in ERISA litigation, including disability and health care insurance disputes. Our insurance coverage team possesses the specialized knowledge required to effectively and efficiently represent clients in this highly complex area of the law.
On the defense side, we have represented a large, nationwide insurer in long-term disability and health care insurance cases. We have successfully litigated ERISA preemption and related issues against HMOs who have been sued in conjunction with medical malpractice claims. On the plaintiff’s side, we have also been successful in obtaining health care and disability insurance benefits for insureds that have been wrongfully denied those important benefits.
We represent clients throughout all phases of an ERISA dispute, from the administrative claim phase through trial and appeals.
