PHILADELPHIA — A man is suing Dun and Bradstreet Short Term Disability Plan and Metlife, alleging breach of contract in connection with disability insurance.
Victor Nassar filed a complaint on Jan. 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging that he was wrongly denied short-term disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2016, he suffered from conditions that kept him out of work for three months and that met the definition of a disability under the terms of his insurance plan. The plaintiff holds Dun and Bradstreet Short Term Disability Plan and Metlife responsible because the defendants allegedly denied his application for disability benefits based on their claim that he did not meet the plan's definition of disability despite the existence of sufficient medical records to support his claim.
The plaintiff seeks an order requiring the defendants to approve his disability benefits plus interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Kevin L. Orloski of Orloski Law Firm in Allentown , Pennsylvania.
