Should I handle the case myself during internal appeals and just hire an ERISA lawyer when I need to sue in court?

No. I have heard clients tell me that the insurer or claims administrator told the client not to hire a lawyer until after the claims procedure had been exhausted. That would be an enormous mistake, and a way to almost guarantee you will not get the benefits you deserve. When seeking redress in court, the judge will limit her review to the record created before the insurer or administrator, meaning if you wait to get us involved until after you have exhausted internal appeals we cannot add value to your case by leveraging our experience to create the sort of record that is difficult for the insurer to deny a claim based upon, and that gives you the best chance of a judicial decision in your favor.
