    Zurich life insurance and ME/CFS: Irish Court Case

    A retired secondary school teacher who was followed by private detectives acting for Zurich Life Assurance has settled her High Court action over the insurer’s decision to cease paying her a disability allowance.

    The action was taken by mother-of-three Bridget Daly (48) of The Chase, Clonmel, Co Tipperary who suffers from a condition known as ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and has been deemed medically unable to work by the Department of Education.

    Ms Daly had, through her trade union the ASTI, signed up to a salary protection scheme with Zurich. However Zurich ceased paying her the benefits in April and informed her that her case was under review.

    As a result, she sued Zurich and sought injunctions directing the insurer to pay her disability benefit under the Salary Protection Scheme.

    Thanks for letting us know. I'd have thought that they really wouldn't want a precedent to go against them on a case like that.
