MIAMI – A woman alleges she was wrongfully denied disability benefits.
Sabrina Coleman filed a complaint on March 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Miami Division against The Prudential Insurance Co. of America alleging that the plan administrator violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she became disabled and unable to work in May 2015 and that the defendant denied her claim for benefits that October. The plaintiff holds The Prudential Insurance Co. of America responsible because the defendant allegedly denied her long-term disability benefits and ignored her medical records and the opinions of her physicians.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for unpaid long-term disability benefits, plus interest, attorneys' fees and the costs and for such other relief as the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Carter E. Meader and Edward Philip Dabdoub of Wagar Dabdoub PA in Coral Gables.
