SAN FRANCISCO – An individual is suing his late wife's insurance company alleging that it denied the insurance benefits he says he is owed.
Jacques Aslan filed a complaint Feb. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Life Insurance Co. of North America (CIGNA), citing breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that after his wife's death in February 2015, he submitted a claim for the life insurance benefits but was denied due to an alleged failure of premium payment by his wife. The plaintiff holds Life Insurance Co. of North America responsible because the defendant allegedly denied application for life benefits made by the plaintiff despite of arrangements made prior to Ann Aslan's death, which was within policy of the plan, the suit states.
The plaintiff seeks $1 million for general damages for mental and emotional distress, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $5 million, attorney's fees and costs and any other relief the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Glenn R. Kantor, Alan E. Kassan and Mitchell O. Hefter of Kantor & Kantor LLP in Northridge.
