It is essential to hire a disability insurance law firm that has the resources, co-counsel network and experience to effectively represent disability insurance claimants against these nationwide disability insurance companies. We have relationships with lawyers throughout Ohio and if we are not able to assist you with your disability claim, then we may be able to recommend a Ohio disability lawyer.

Ohio residents that have had their disability insurance benefits denied can file a lawsuit in the County, Municipal, and Court of Common Pleas under a limited set of circumstances. Ohio’s state appellate courts includes the Court of Appeals and the Ohio Supreme Court. If the disability claimant resides in Ohio and the disability insurance company is located in a different state, and the amount of disability benefits payable is greater than $75,000, then the lawsuit can be filed in Ohio Federal District Court. If the disability insurance policy is an employer provided policy governed by ERISA, then the disability claim must be filed in federal court. Ohio has two Federal District Courts, which are the Northern and Southern District of Ohio Federal Courts. An ERISA governed disability claim denial lawsuit can usually be filed in any state that the insurance company conducts business. According to the Ohio Department of Insurance there are more than 1,700 insurance companies that sell insurance products in Ohio.
