We received a claim from a fast food restaurant. An employee filed a stress claim after an attempted robbery. That sounds reasonable and acceptable. What was odd was the way the “robbery” ended… A man walked into the restaurant at 6:30am and pulled out a gun and demanded all the cash in the register. The employee/claimant turned him down because he said he couldn’t open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren’t available for breakfast… The gunman simply walked away! Claim accepted!

A massive swarm of bees attacked four people in southern Arizona killing one and hospitalizing another. The landscapers’ were using a lawnmower and edge trimmer, which might have angered the bees.
Two landscape workers were found in critical condition outside a residence One of the workers had collapsed and was having trouble breathing when emergency workers arrived. Both were rushed to a local hospital, where one of the victims was pronounced dead. The injured second victim was believed to have been stung more than 100 times.
A bee exterminator later located a large hive in the attic of the house where the men had been working. The exterminator said the hive — about 4 feet wide and 6 feet long — was about 10 years old and had approximately 800,000 bees inside. The homeowner, a 90-year-old man, was evacuated and is now staying with his daughter.
A third landscape worker and a neighbor were also attacked.

Plaintiff’s car had overturned and fell down an embankment, hitting the corner of a house. He claimed that he was not negligent, but rather, Defendant was negligent for having her high beams on, which caused him to lose control. Defendant took the depositions of two witnesses who testified that the Plaintiff was speeding. Once of the witnesses had been out walking and testified she had to jump off the road because she was afraid the speeding car was going to hit her. The arbitrator ruled in favor of Defendant. The insurance carrier did not have to pay.

We received a workers’ compensation claim for a Car Salesman. He was walking the car lot with a prospective client who was checking out the used cars. The customer asked to see under the hood. When the car salesman opened the hood a Huge POSSUM was in side the engine and snarled at him. He was so frightened he dropped the hood but fell backwards down onto the pavement. He hit his head and injured his back. He lost no time from work but has been constantly harassed since the incident by co employees.
He has now filed a Psyche claim stating his coworkers are playing the song “Muscrat Love” from Captain and Tenille very loudly on their cell phones. They Put a Redneck Possum recipe on his desk and asked him to bring it to the potluck. They put a raccoon skinned hat in his desk drawer to scare him again and the jokes are apparently relentless.
I can’t wait to read the recorded statements from the coworkers.

Claimant alleged back pain from a slip and fall in a retail store. The security camera in the store did not record the area where the fall allegedly occurred, but showed another customer that looked to be facing the claimant at the time of the alleged slip and fall. An employee recognized the customer as a regular and so he was identified and interviewed. The customer just happened to be wearing a body camera, which he had mistakenly left running at the time of the alleged incident. Upon review of the film, Claimant did not fall, but merely slipped and caught her foot slipping, but regained her footing. The film was enough to establish that Claimant had fraudulently made a claim and so the matter was referred to the prosecutor’s office.

Two middle school students face felony charges after a weekend prank ended up flooding the nearby school gym causing up to $100,000 in damage. The 13-year old’s face felony criminal mischief charges in Juvenile court.
As a “Prank”, the two students put a wig and a roll of paper towels in a toilet on Saturday. The toilet ran for 24 hours before staff members came in and noticed the flooding.
The damage closed the gym and the nearby school kitchen.
We will of course attempt to subrogate against their parents to recoup any monies possible against our policy.

We received a pet insurance claim for a toy poodle. Apparently grandma was in town and made two dozen of her famous RUM BALLS. She left them to cool on the kitchen counter and went to take a shower. When she returned to the kitchen an hour later the dog was laying on the floor unconscious and the kitchen counter had only remnants of the two dozen cookies. The dog had climbed up on the counter and eaten all the cookies.
He was immediately rushed to the vet who was able to give him something to induce vomiting. He was hooked up to an IV and placed in a dark room to sleep it off.
I wonder if he had a Hangover???
