MIAMI — A woman claims her long-term disability payments were allegedly terminated for unjust reasons.
Carlota Acuna filed a complaint Sept. 2 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division, against Life Insurance Co. of North America, alleging that the insurance firm terminated the plaintiff's long-term disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2012, she became disabled due to several medical disorders and was initially being paid disability benefits until they were terminated effective Nov. 13, 2014. The plaintiff holds Life Insurance Co. of North America responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny further payment to the plaintiff for disability benefits, despite several appeals and despite still being purportedly disabled according to the terms of the plan.
The plaintiff seeks unpaid long-term disability benefits plus interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Edward Philip Dabdoub and Geannina Burgos of Wagar Dabdoub P.A. in Miami.
