Disability Insurance Lawyers in Buffalo, NY
Recovering Short-Term and Long-Term Disability Benefits for Buffalo Claimants
When disabling medical conditions prevent you from fulfilling the duties of your occupation, disability insurance presents a solution. As long as you have a policy and a valid claim, your income is protected, right? Not always. Sometimes, insurance companies collect premiums but delay or deny valid claims. Otherwise, they award benefits only to terminate them with no explanation.
Dabdoub Law Firm helps Buffalo claimants fight back and get the benefits they deserve. Our Buffalo disability lawyers have more than 20 years of experience handling claims like yours, and we can help you at any stage of the claims process.
Call us at (800) 969-0488 to get help with filing a disability insurance claim, appealing a denial or termination of benefits, or filing a lawsuit against your insurance company.
Buffalo Disability Claims
At the eastern end of Lake Erie, Buffalo is the 2nd-largest city in New York State and the seat of Erie County. The Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan statistical area had an estimated population of 1.1 million in 2020 and is one of the largest economic centers in the United States. Thanks to its strategic position on the Erie Canal, Buffalo is a hub for grain and other agricultural products shipped from the Midwest. It also has a rich history in steel and auto parts manufacturing and is currently home to advanced manufacturing, research and development, and automation.
Otherwise, Buffalo’s economy is service-based, and the top employers in Buffalo include:
- Kaleida Health
- Tops Markets LLC
- Wegmans Food Markets Inc
- M&T Bank
- MOOG Inc.
- Seneca Gaming Corp.
- HSBC Bank NA
- Delaware North
- Rich Products Corporation
- Computer Task Group
- Ingram Micro
- Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center

Many of these employers use group disability policies to incentivize employment and stay competitive. With healthcare being a leading industry, many doctors purchase private disability policies, as well. Even self-employed professionals like attorneys, artists, and entrepreneurs purchase policies from Buffalo’s top disability insurance providers. Companies like UNUM, Mass Mutual, Northwestern Mutual, and Liberty Mutual are quick to sell disability insurance to all kinds of people, but they do not always honor their end of the contract.
Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), your insurance provider is obligated to act in your best interests. If they fail to do so, Dabdoub Law Firm can help you hold them accountable and recover the benefits you deserve.
Some cases go all the way to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York City, New York, but we handle most claims before our clients see the inside of a courtroom.
