Baton Rouge Disability Lawyers
Representing Baton Rouge Claimants in Disputes with Disability Insurance Companies
Many hardworking people have long-term disability insurance through their employers or make the smart decision to purchase a private plan if they are self-employed. None of these people plan to become disabled, but they pay their premiums for peace of mind.
All too often, however, disability insurance companies shatter this peace of mind by delaying and denying valid disability insurance claims. If you are fighting your insurance company for short-term or long-term disability benefits, Dabdoub Law Firm can help. We have been representing people like you for more than 20 years, and we have experience with every major disability insurance company.

Disability Claims in Baton Rouge, LA
Baton Rouge is the capital of Louisiana and home to 300 years of exciting history. It is also the second-largest city in Louisiana after New Orleans and enjoys a strong economy. As the furthest inland port on the Mississippi River, Baton Rouge is a hub of shipping and transportation. The city is also a major industrial, medical, petrochemical, motion picture, research, and technology center in the United States.
Top employers in Baton Rouge include:
- Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers
- Exxon Mobil
- BASF Wyandotte Corporation
- CB&I Government Solutions, Inc.
- Shaw Environmental, Inc.
- Piccadilly Restaurants
- Lamar Advertising Company
- H&E Equipment Services
- Abmb-Hntb Joint Venture
- The Newtron Group
- Dow Chemical Company
To stay competitive, many of these large employers offer their employees disability insurance policies. Because Baton Rouge is such a popular place to live and work, many doctors, lawyers, artists, and entrepreneurs live in the city and purchase disability insurance from the same providers.
In Baton Rouge, insurance companies like UNUM and MetLife handle the majority of disability insurance policies. Most policies are also subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
If an insurance company mishandles your claim and violates ERISA, you have the right to file a lawsuit against them in federal court. Although Dabdoub Law Firm handles most claims before clients see the inside of a courtroom, some claims go all the way to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans and end up improving the law for disability claimants.
At our firm, we won’t charge you any money until you recover the disability benefits you deserve.
