PITTSBURGH — A man is suing Aetna Life Insurance Company, citing alleged breach of contract.
Richard Fisher filed a complaint on Nov. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Aetna Life Insurance Company, alleging that the insurance firm wrongly denied his claim for disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2015, he became disabled when he fell down stairs, causing severe physical injuries to his right shoulder. He alleges he filed for long-term disability benefits but was denied. The plaintiff holds Aetna Life Insurance Company responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny his disability benefits despite his disability.
The plaintiff seeks all relief to which he is entitled, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Brian Patrick Bronson of QuatriniTafferty, P.C. in Greensburg.
