BENTON — A Red Bud man is suing an insurance company for allegedly violating workers compensation acts.
Stephen F. Jung filed a complaint on June 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company, alleging the plan administrator violated the Employee Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the defendant terminated his extension of death benefits under his life insurance policy. Jung also alleges the defendant failed to adequately consider the facts and circumstances regarding his claim and failed to adequately investigate the facts supporting his claim.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor, reinstatement of his life insurance coverage without payment of premium, attorney fees, costs and all other relief that is just and proper.
He is represented by Matthew R. Davis of Gallagher Davis LLP in St. Louis.
