Claimant, who was from California was visiting a small town in Idaho, went into a grocery store and demanded he be able to return a frozen turkey breast. The store agreed to give him a store credit, but would not take the turkey breast back, because they couldn’t resell it. The Claimant was angry and as he was walking out of the store, he slipped and fell. He claimed injury, filed a lawsuit against the store. The small town jury didn’t award the Claimant a dime, even though he was able to prove he was injured. Don’t mess with their small town!

A teenager was killed when a stone slab weighing about 650 pounds fell on him outside a business that makes counter tops.
The body was found at about 6:40 a.m. Saturday morning. The business was closed when the accident occurred, and it’s not clear why the teen was at the site.
It appears the boy was trying to walk between marble and granite slabs when a massive slab fell on top of him. It’s not clear how long he had been trapped before a passing motorist spotted him and called police.
The teen was pronounced dead shortly after authorities arrived on scene. We are not sure how he got on the property or why he was there and therefore are delaying liability until further information can be obtained. Was he trespassing? Why was on the property? Was there horseplay involved? He was not an employee and therefore any settlement may be reduced or denied. But, I am sure we will have to pay something.

The only thing I was told about the claim I was investigating was that it involved an animal bite. I met with my insured who introduced me to his large Maine Coon cat. It turns out that our insured likes to bring his cat everywhere he goes and so has a “service animal” vest the cat wears when they go out. A little boy pulled the cat’s tail, which led to the cat bite. The boy only required one doctor’s visit, which we paid. The Maine Coon still goes out wearing his service vest, despite our suggestion he be left at home.

A female claimant alleged her male boss was obsessed with the color of her underwear and would often comment on it. She stated he would hover around my work station and he would always know what color of underwear I had on. He would just call out a color as he was walking around the chair or as he was walking away from the desk. There was one particular day that he was excited that our color of underwear matched and he felt he had to pull his pants down in the office and show me the color of his (light blue) underwear. He would chastise her about the type of underwear she wore and suggested she needed to wear more lace panites. He told her to stop wearing “Granny Panties.” She also claimed he forcibly tried to kiss her and fondle her breasts.
At the trial, her boss’s character was called into question when he could not recall how many female subordinates he had slept with or if he had ever called the unit they worked in a ’sex fest’.
The Claimant was awarded a judgement of $325,000.00 and her boss was ordered to pay $25,000 in punitive damages on top of the six-figure judgment against the city.

Claimant was cleaning our insured’s house. She sliced her finger on a detachable blender blade when reaching into the blender to clean out the dishwasher. The insured said that she wrote a note, telling Claimant not to clean out the dishwasher and she also verbally told her not to do it because of the sharp blade in the dishwasher. Claimant admitted that she saw and heard the warnings, but was curious about how sharp the blade was and so put her hand in the dishwasher. She needed 10 stitches and her claim was denied.

Our insured was a movie theatre offering 4D movies, enhancing the experience of the audience by shaking and moving their seats to correlate to the 3D action on film. Claimant reported falling off her chair when it shook, which caused her to spill her coffee onto her leg. She claimed back and neck injuries and burns to her legs and torso. She didn’t seek medical attention until one week after the movie and there was no evidence of burns in pictures or in medical records. After some investigation, we discovered that Claimant was in a car accident on the way home from the theatre. Since the accident was her fault, she had to come up with a creative way to try to get money for her injuries. We denied the claim.

Witnesses say a woman was cursing and acting aggressively when she complained to the fast food staff about her Burrito order that was allegedly wrong. She then picked up a bowl filled with business cards and threw it at workers before heading to the parking lot. The manager followed the woman outside to jot down her license plate number. The pissed off woman began pepper spraying the manager. She then chased the manager inside the restaurant and sprayed others, including customers.
About eight patrons and six employees were inside at the time. None of the victims had to be taken to the hospital. Some were treated by firefighters in the parking lot.
Witnesses say the attack happened so fast that they only have a vague description of the woman and she has not been apprehended. We are just waiting for the claims to roll in. We could receive workers’ compensation claims as well as liability claims from the patrons.

We received a potential death claim from a tow truck company. A 53 year old male had gone outside when he saw his Lincoln SUV being hooked up and towed away for a parking violation. He immediately chased the car and the tow truck. He apparently ran to the driver’s s side of the vehicle to attempt to get into the vehicle as it was moving. However, he lost his footing and fell. When he fell, he fell underneath the car and was run over by the back wheels of “his own vehicle.” He was pronounced dead at the scene. Our insured has reported this as a precaution in case a claim is filed by his surviving relatives. No charges were filed against the tow truck driver.
