What's the proper way to batch run a model through multiple independent load cases?

Do I need to have a unique inp file for each load case? I tried multiple *STEP cards, however I think the results from previous steps get carried across because subsequent steps do not converge this way.

You can use:

*STEP, PERTURBATION
*STATIC

for this. It will work as a series of independent steps (equivalent to *LOAD CASE in Abaqus).
