LOS ANGELES — An individual claims an insurance company wrongfully denied him long-term disability payments.

Harvey Gaines filed a complaint Sept. 2 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and Does 1 to 10, alleging that they denied the plaintiff's claim for disability benefits.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in July 2014, he became disabled and was paid disability benefits until they were terminated in December 2015. The plaintiff holds Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and Does 1 to 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly upheld their decision to deny the plaintiff's disability benefits based upon the purportedly incorrect review of a physician.

The plaintiff seeks damages, short- and long-term disability benefits payable at the rate of $2,900, 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.
