MIAMI — A man is suing The Prudential Insurance Company of America, alleging breach of contract.
Jason Carbaugh filed a complaint on Oct. 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against The Prudential Insurance Company of America, alleging that the insurer improperly denied his claim for disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2015, he became disabled and applied for disability benefits but was denied. The plaintiff holds The Prudential Insurance Company of America responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny the plaintiff's disability benefits despite having adequate medical records to support the claim.
The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits, reinstatement, an order that long-term disability benefits be paid to the plaintiff for as long as he remains disabled according to the terms of the plan, all legal fees and interest plus any other relief the court deems just. He is represented by Stephen F. Jessup of Attorneys Dell and Schaefer, Chartered in Hollywood.
