RIVERSIDE – A man alleges his insurer wrongfully terminated his disability benefits despite medical information from his doctors.
Daniel Tudorache filed a complaint on Dec. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against The Prudential Insurance Co. of America citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014, he became disabled due to low back and SI joint pain. He alleges he applied for disability benefits and received them for a time, but the defendant denied benefits in April 2016. The plaintiff holds The Prudential Insurance Co. of America responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny plaintiff's disability benefits despite the overwhelming evidence of his disability.
The plaintiff seeks benefits not paid to the plaintiff plus interest, future disability benefits, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Frank N. Darras, Lissa A. Martinez, Susan B. Grabarsky and Phillip S. Bather of Darras Law in Ontario.
