FLORIDA — An employee is suing The Lincoln National Life Insurance Co., an insurance firm, citing alleged breach of contract.
Lisa Lipton filed a complaint on Nov. 3, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against The Lincoln National Life Insurance Co. alleging that the insurance firm denied plaintiff's claim for disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2010, she became disabled and was initially issued long-term disability benefits until they were terminated. The plaintiff holds The Lincoln National Life Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly terminated plaintiff's benefits claiming that she no longer met the definition of disability.
The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits due to the plaintiff, reinstatement, all legal fees and interest plus any other relief which this court deems just. She is represented by Stephen F. Jessup of Attorneys Dell and Schaefer, Chartered in Hollywood.
