LOS ANGELES – A former cameraman with CBS Corp. alleges his insurer wrongfully denied his claim for disability benefits.
Scott Torrens filed a complaint on June 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Unum Life Insurance Co. of America alleging violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he became disabled in 2013 and applied for disability benefits but was denied. The plaintiff holds Unum Life Insurance Co. of America responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny plaintiff's claim for benefits despite having sufficient medical records to support his claim.
The plaintiff seeks benefits due to the plaintiff plus interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Frank N. Darras, Susan B. Grabarsky and Phillip S. Bather of Darras Law in Ontario.
