PHILADELPHIA — A woman is suing The Prudential Insurance Company of America, claiming the insurer violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act by improperly terminating her short-term disability benefits and denying her long-term disability benefits.
Bridget Devito filed a complaint on July 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against The Prudential Insurance Company of America, alleging that the insurer should provide her with disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014, she became disabled and was initially receiving disability benefits, but they were later terminated. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible because the company allegedly terminated the plaintiff's disability benefits despite her continuing disability and the existence of adequate medical records to support the claim.
The plaintiff seeks disability benefits, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Joseph Capitan of Martin Law in Philadelphia.
