SAN DIEGO – A former Hitachi Corp. employee alleges that his insurer terminated his disability benefits without providing a prompt and reasonable explanation.
Dale Holmgren filed a complaint on May 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Sun Life and Health Insurance Co. alleging citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he became disabled and began receiving benefits from the defendant in August 2015. The suit states the benefits were later terminated. The plaintiff holds Sun Life and Health Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay long-term disability benefits to the plaintiff despite being entitled to them.
The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits due to him, payment of all past due benefits, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Glenn R. Kantor and Andrew M. Kantor of Kantor & Kantor, LLP in Northridge.
