LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles man alleges he is disabled and that his insurer wrongfully denied his claim for disability benefits.
Daniel Gomez filed a complaint on Jan. 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Liberty Life Assurance Co. of Boston and LPC Services Inc. Group Insurance Plan citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2016, he became disabled from having been diagnosed with diabetes, hypertension, diabetic retinopathy, gout, osteomyelitis of the right foot and applied for disability benefits, but was denied. The plaintiff holds Liberty Life Assurance Co. of Boston and LPC Services Inc. Group Insurance Plan responsible because the defendants allegedly denied benefits when they knew he was unable to work and entitled to the benefits.
The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits, reinstatement with all ancillary benefits, all legal fees plus 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.
