PHILADELPHIA — An individual is suing the Lincoln National Life Insurance Company, citing alleged breach of contract.
Michael Trievel filed a complaint on April 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendant violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he stopped working due to an impairment caused by a stroke. The plaintiff claims that he is eligible for long-term disability benefits and death benefits and has provided diagnostic and clinical evidence that allegedly corroborates his inability to perform full-time work. However, the defendant allegedly denied his claim for long-term benefits.
The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly denying his claim for insurance benefits.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks payment of all benefits in arrears that are due and owing, attorney's fees, the costs of the suit, interest, delay damages and any further relief the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Mary LeMieux of Martin Law in Philadelphia.
