PHILADELPHIA — An employee of Johnson & Johnson is suing The Prudential Insurance Company of America, citing alleged breach of contract for denying her claim for long-term disability benefits.

Jessica Nyce of Newtown filed a complaint on March 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging that the insurance company denied plaintiff's disability benefits.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2014, she was denied long-term disability benefits after being paid short-term disability benefits for a period of time during that year. The plaintiff holds Prudential responsible because it allegedly refused to pay plaintiff's long-term disability benefits based on the medical findings of its appointed doctor, which the plaintiff disputes.

The plaintiff seeks pay past due for disability benefits to the plaintiff, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Mary LeMieux-Fillery of Martin Law in Philadelphia.
