PITTSBURGH — An Westmoreland County man is suing Pennsylvania Transformer Technology Inc. Health & Welfare Plan and Aetna Life Insurance Company, citing alleged breach of contract for denying his health benefits claim.
Michael Mansfield filed a complaint on April 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against the defendants alleging that they wrongfully denied plaintiff's claims for benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was damaged from having his application for disability benefits denied. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly refused to acknowledge the plaintiff's medical results that he claims prove he is still disabled.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to declare that the plaintiff is entitled to disability benefits, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Susan A. Meredith of Caroselli Beachler & Coleman LLC in Pittsburgh.
