PITTSBURGH — A Johnstown man is suing The Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company, citing alleged breach of contract for wrongly denying his long-term disability benefits.
Timothy M. Canary filed a complaint on March 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania alleging that the insurance company refused to pay benefits entitled to the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2010, he was unable to perform his regular occupation due to several medical conditions and was paid long-term disability benefits until they were wrongly terminated in May 2014. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible because it allegedly notified the plaintiff of its decision to terminate his disability benefits based on its claim that he no longer is able to provide proof of his disability, which the plaintiff disputes.
The plaintiff seeks reinstatement of benefits, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Brian Patrick Bronson of QuatriniRafferty P.C. in Greensburg.
