Evening News 24 - Gran could lose asbestos compensation

Evening News 24 - Gran could lose asbestos compensation: "DAVID BALE 04 December 2007 11:00 A grandmother who husband died from an asbestos-related disease could miss out on an estimated six-figure compensation payout because of red tape. Now Patricia Withers, 67, must attend a hearing at London's Royal Courts of Justice next Monday (10) to find out whether she will be due any compensation over the death of her husband Thomas."

However, a legal row has erupted because Zurich is now refusing to payout because the claim for compensation to them was not made with the statutory three-year time period after her husband's death.
