SANTA ANA – An Orange County individual claims her application for disability benefits was wrongfully denied.
Vicki Slominski filed a complaint on Feb. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division against Life Insurance Co. of North America and Does 1-10 alleging breach of insurance contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 26, 2016, she was caused to suffer economic losses because of defendants' wrongful denial of her disability benefits. The plaintiff holds Life Insurance Co. of North America and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to fulfill its obligations under the policy, ignored the ample medical evidence in support of plaintiff's disability claim, and ignored its obligation to conduct a thorough claims examination.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment on her behalf, past due and future benefits, compensatory and consequential damages, emotional distress damages, punitive damages, interest, attorneys' fees, costs of suit and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Robert J. McKennon and Scott E. Calvert of McKennon Law Group PC in Newport Beach.
