LOS ANGELES – A man alleges his insurer failed to take all of his medical conditions into consideration before it denied his long-term disability benefit claim.
Jason Piazza filed a complaint on Dec. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Unum Life Insurance Co. of America citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2015, he became disabled due to severe headaches, migraines, chronic fatigue and a sleep disorder and applied for disability benefits but was denied. The plaintiff holds Unum Life Insurance Co. of America responsible because the defendant allegedly ignored some of plaintiff's conditions when evaluating plaintiff's application for disability benefits.
The plaintiff seeks damages for long-term disability benefits payable at the rate of $4,610 per month plus interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Bernard R. Schwam of Law Office of Bernard R. Schwam in Encino.
