[UKPRwire, Fri May 08 2015] Accidental death and life insurance attorney, Michael Bartolic (www.michaelbartolic.com) has been practicing in the Chicago area for many years. In 2009, he opened his own firm as an accidental death and life insurance attorney with a unique focus on claims made under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). ERISA does not require that private companies provide benefits such as life and health insurance. However, when they do, they must comply with ERISA legislation.
Although, originally designed to help employees retain their benefits as prescribed by their employers, ERISA law is increasingly favoring employers. When it comes to accidental death and life insurance, it is critical an accidental death and life insurance attorney with extensive experience in ERISA be consulted as soon as possible.
If there are both ERISA and Non-ERISA policies it pays to hire an ERISA lawyer because he can often settle multiple claims using the same evidence, research and witnesses. A non-ERISA accidental death and life insurance attorney would have to be consulted individually for these claims.
