PENSACOLA, Florida — A woman is suing Unum Life Insurance Company of America, citing alleged breach of contract.
Irma Broughton Blocker filed a complaint on Nov. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida against Unum Life Insurance Company of America, alleging that the insurance firm incorrectly denied her claim for disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in May 2015, she became disabled and applied for disability benefits but was denied. The plaintiff holds Unum Life Insurance Company of America responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny the plaintiff's disability benefits despite her disability according to the terms of the plan.
The plaintiff seeks all benefits owed, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by R. Ian MacLaren, III and Daniel M. Soloway of Soloway Law Firm in Pensacola.
