Disability Insurance Attorneys in Tacoma, WA
Helping the People of Tacoma Recover Disability Benefits
Everyone plans to stop working when they retire, but many people are forced to stop working before retirement age. When this occurs, people with disability insurance policies turn to their providers for assistance. Disability insurance is designed to protect your income when a qualifying medical condition prevents you from fulfilling the duties of your occupation. You likely have disability insurance through your employer, or you may have purchased disability insurance to protect the money you make as a doctor, lawyer, artist, entrepreneur, or another self-employed professional.
If you have a disability insurance policy, and your provider will not pay short-term or long-term disability benefits for a valid claim, Dabdoub Law Firm can help. We have been helping claimants in Tacoma manage their insurance claims, appeal denials, and even file lawsuits against their insurance companies for more than 20 years, and we can help you, too.

Tacoma Disability Claims
Tacoma is a growing port city in Puget Sound and the third-largest city in Washington. Once an industrial hub where “rails met sails,” Tacoma suffered during the Great Depression but enjoyed revitalization in the early 1990s. Today, Tacoma is a popular place for artists, entrepreneurs, and business owners and home to several international companies. Most people work in the military, healthcare, finance and insurance, aerospace, trade and logistics, government, and education industries.

Many private employers offer disability insurance to help attract employees. Insurance companies like Northwestern Mutual, New York Life, and MetLife offer group disability policies to employers and employees and individual disability policies to Tacoma’s doctors, lawyers, artists, entrepreneurs, and other self-employed professionals.
Most of these policies are regulated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), so if insurance companies fail to pay out valid claims, claimants can file complaints against them in federal court.
Claims can make it all the way to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland, but when insurance companies hear from Dabdoub Law Firm, they generally resolve complaints as soon as possible – without the hassle of litigation. We usually recover disability benefits before our clients see the inside of a courtroom – much less travel all the way to Oregon.
