PHILADELPHIA — An individual is suing an insurance company, citing alleged breach of contract.
John Gulotta filed a complaint Oct. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Life Insurance Co. of North America, alleging the insurance company refused to pay the plaintiff's claim for disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he became disabled under the terms of the plan and as a result, was entitled to benefits, but he claims he never received such benefits. The plaintiff holds Life Insurance Co. of North America responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to wrongfully deny the plaintiff's claim for disability benefits despite having sufficient medical evidence.
The plaintiff seeks payment of long-term-disability benefits, immediate reinstatement to the plan with all ancillary benefits, court costs, interest and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Marc H. Snyder and Kellyann Inservo of Rosen, Moss, Snyder & Bleefeld LLP in Jenkintown.
