Amir Broumand filed a complaint on Feb. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Ocala Division against BB&T Corp. and Hartford Life & Accident Insurance Co. citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that his claims for short and long-term disability benefits were denied by the defendants. The plaintiff holds BB&T Corp. and Hartford Life & Accident Insurance Co. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed consider the plaintiff's medical evidence.
