Disability Claims in Chesapeake
Chesapeake is one of the oldest cities in the United States and one of the fastest-growing cities in the state of Virginia. With a population of 242,617, a labor force of 113,727, and some of the lowest living costs in the country, Chesapeake has become an appealing destination to many individuals and businesses.
To keep top talent in Chesapeake, many employers offer competitive benefits, including disability insurance. Chesapeake’s top employers include:
- Capital One

Many of the employers above purchase group disability policies from companies like Prudential, Liberty Mutual, Northwestern Mutual, and CIGNA. Doctors in private practice, lawyers, entrepreneurs, artists, and self-employed individuals purchase private plans from the same insurance companies.
Most of these policies fall under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), which means insurers must act in the best interest of their policyholders.
If your insurance company fails to act in your best interest, you can challenge its decision. Some claims go all the way to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia. Although Dabdoub Law Firm is prepared to try your claim in federal court, we resolve most claims before clients see the inside of a courtroom.
