One of the stars of a show called, “Dating Naked” signed on with the understanding that her private parts would be blurred for the viewing public. To her surprise, a shot of her privates was beamed to millions of television viewers and so she filed a $10 million lawsuit against the network and two production companies. The defense will likely argue that she assumed the risk of being shown naked on a show with such name. Is this a Crazy Claim?

China’s Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that employees injured on their way to do grocery shopping after work could receive workers’ compensation, a report said. The Supreme Court said it supported on-the-job injury claims, even when the accidents happen after work hours “within a reasonable time range” and “on a reasonable route” from a place of employment, Administrative Division Chief Justice Zhao Daguang was quoted as saying in a Chinese-language report by the state-run Xinhua News Agency. The claim would be valid if the injured worker “needed go to the food market to do some grocery shopping on a direct route” from his or her workplace, Zhao said. Likewise, workers could claim such compensation even if returning home late because they wanted to work extra hours or avoid rush-hour traffic, he said. The judicial interpretation would take effect starting Sept. 1, the report said.

A 50-year-old man died earlier this year after a vibrator became stuck in his rectum. Facts revealed during the investigation are as follows: He was unemployed and lived with his elderly mother. He was diabetic. He was depressed with his life. He laid on his couch for five days after the sex toy got stuck inside him as he was too embarrassed to seek any medical help.
He became progressively weaker, and only sought medical assistance after a friend stopped by and learned of the problem and begged him to get help.
Doctors advised the vibrator had perforated the man’s bowel. He subsequently developed septic shock and suffered multiple organ failure. He died in the hospital six weeks later. Yikes!!!!

A beauty pageant contestant posted pictures of herself on Facebook strutting across the stage wearing high heels. This wouldn’t ordinarily have been a big deal, but in her case, she had fractured a toe at work, made a worker’s compensation claim and told her doctor and employer that she couldn’t wear shoes, walk for any length of time and was unable to work. As a result of her social media posts, claimant was arrested for insurance fraud.

Our insured was driving home on a country road a little before midnight when a deer darted out in front of him. He tried to swerve but hit the deer. He immediately stopped to assess the damage to his vehicle and to get calmed down. It was very dark and the only light he had was from his headlights. Being an animal lover he grabbed his cell phone to use as flash light. He stated he slowly approached the deer who appeared to be dead. He said he was choked up and knelt down next to the deer trying to decide what to do with the carcass. Then all of a sudden the deer quickly lunged over and bit our insured on the right arm and then kicked the crap out of him and then ran away. Our insured had to drive himself to the ER.
He only had scraps and bruises from the kicks but since the deer drew blood from the bite, he had to go through an intensive series of pain full rabies shots. And now he stated he has awful nightmares of being chased by Deer, Lol.
Yes, we covered all of the medical expenses! Crazy deer!!!!

We received a claim from an insured whose car was stolen. Several hours later they were informed by the local sheriff their car was located but it had been wrecked. A 13-year-old boy stole the car, but when he saw his mother driving in the opposite lane of the four lane road he became so distracted that he crashed the stolen car into a tree. He was treated for a broken nose and a hip injury at an area hospital.
Geez.. moms can be SO embarrassing!

Doctors all over the country are being forced to pull down photos of the babies they’ve delivered and children that they’ve treated for fear that they will be sued for violating HIPAA laws. So, a parent, out of gratitude for his or her’s doctor’s terrific care, gives the doctor a photo. The fear is that very parent will turn around and sue the doctor for violating the child’s privacy that the parent seemed to have waived by providing the picture. Maybe, the doctors should keep the pictures up and then file a 3rd party action against the parent if a lawsuit should arise.

Claimant visited a gym with the intent of joining. As she was walking out, she tripped and fell, spraining her ankle. She filed an insurance claim with the gym’s carrier and threatened a lawsuit. The savvy adjuster checked the records and discovered that the claimant joined the gym shortly after the incident and was working out regularly. The claim was denied.
