MIAMI – A Publix Super Markets employee alleges he was wrongfully terminated from receiving disability benefits.

Joseph Grzonka filed a complaint on Aug. 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Co. alleging that the insurance firm denied plaintiff's claim for disability benefits.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in July 2010, he began receiving disability benefits from the defendant but the benefits were terminated effective Sept. 10, 2015. The plaintiff holds Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny plaintiff's disability benefits without performing an adequate investigation regarding his disability claim.

The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits due, reinstatement, declare that plaintiff is to be paid disability benefits for as long as he remains disabled according to the terms of the plan, all legal fees and interest, and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Rachel Alters and Gregory M. Dell of Attorneys Dell and Schaefer Chartered in Hollywood.
