SACRAMENTO — An El Dorado County woman is suing Met Life Insurance, alleging breach of contract.
Cathaarina Koll filed a complaint July 28 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and Resources Global Professionals Long Term Disability Plan, alleging they denied the plaintiff's claim for disability benefits.
According to the complaint, Koll, 59 disabled due to the deterioration of her cervical spine and from being diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She said she applied for disability benefits that were denied.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants upheld their decision to deny plaintiff's appeal for disability benefits despite having sufficient medical proof that she deserved the benefits.
Koll seeks pay long-term disability benefits, plus interest, all legal fees and all other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Teresa S. Renaker of Renaker Hasselman Scott LLP in San Francisco.
