LOS ANGELES – A Primesource Building Products employee alleges he was wrongfully terminated from receiving disability benefits.
David Hennek filed a complaint on Sept. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the defendants Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Co. and Primesource Building Products Inc. Long Term Disability Plan citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in July 2010, he became disabled and was initially being paid disability benefits until the benefits were terminated in July 2013. The plaintiff holds Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Co. and Primesource Building Products Inc. Long Term Disability Plan responsible because Hartford allegedly upheld its decision to terminate plaintiff's disability benefits despite plaintiff's allegations that he is still disabled according to the terms of the plan.
The plaintiff seeks benefits due to plaintiff plus interest, reinstatement, reimbursement, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Frank N. Darras, Lissa A. Martinez, Susan B. Grabarsky and Phillip S. Bather of DarrasLaw in Ontario.
