Ohio & WV Disability Claims Lawyers

Life Insurance—Health Insurance—Pensions—Disability Claims

You exchange your labor and time for the benefits your employer provides. When needed benefits like life, health, COBRA, disability, or accidental death and dismemberment benefits are denied when they are needed most, you have legal options to pursue and enforce your rights.

At Fields, Dehmlow & Vessels, in Marietta, Ohio, we are one of the few law firms (perhaps the only firm) in Southeastern Ohio that regularly helps employees pursue their job benefits under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Attorney Ethan Vessels has successfully obtained benefits for employees throughout Southeastern Ohio, including claims for:

  • Pension benefits
  • Health insurance coverage, benefits, and payments
  • Long-term disability payments
  • Life insurance claims
  • Accidental death and dismemberment insurance claims

Insurers have many excuses for taking your hard-earned insurance premiums, then denying benefits. Has your claim been denied because:

  • Was your medical procedure was “experimental”?
  • Did you have an alleged pre-existing condition?
  • Are you deemed ineligible for COBRA?
  • Did you allegedly miss an eligibility period?
  • Was an accidental death was deemed “not an accident”?
  • Is your insurer claiming you are not really disabled?

Let Us Help You Appeal Your Case

ERISA govern all employee benefits disputes and mandates that you exhaust your internal appeal rights before trying to appeal to the courts. We can investigate your claim, create a comprehensive appeal package, and draft an argument detailing the merits of your case and why you are entitled to your benefits.

Claims quickly become more difficult to document and pursue, so it is important to start the fight early. If you have questions regarding a denied claim and must fight for the benefits you are owed, contact a lawyer for tested legal representation.
