Fast on his Feet

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+6 (6 votes)

In a premises liability case involving a pro se Plaintiff, our defense attorney filed a motion for summary judgement. At the hearing on the motion, Plaintiff made his argument in opposition without success and we won. Plaintiff, who claimed to have problems walking because of a slip and fall, was quite fast on his feet when he chased our attorney out of the courtroom and to her car. Our suspicion that Plaintiff was exaggerating his injuries was confirmed.

Did The Lack of Manufacturer Lane Change Warning System Contribute To This Accident?

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+5 (7 votes)

We received an auto claim in which the insured claims that the accident was the fault of her car and not her fault. She thinks the manufacturer should pay for the claim and this at fault accident should not be charged against her policy.

She has a Mercedes that has warning lights in the side view mirrors as well as when you start to change lanes if there is a car in your path it will beep. She said because of this feature she never looks before she changes lanes. She said if she tries to change lanes and it beeps then she just stays in her lane. She said it is a great feature as she does not have to turn her head and look anymore. Further in the conversation she revealed that because her car has a back up camera she never looks behind her either. She just puts the car into reverse and watches the screen to see if anything is behind her. I tried to explain to her this was an ADDED FEATURE and was not intended for her to stop being aware of her surroundings. I also explained that she would have to pursue action against the car Manufacturer on her own. We were going to stick with this accident as being her fault.

She then became very agitated and was screaming at me. I tried to explain further and she became more and more angry. I then had a thought. I asked if she could have been talking on the phone when the accident occurred and may have not heard the warning beep. She became more agitated. I told her that the car manufacture would subpoena her phone records to determine if she was on the phone at the time of the accident to attempt to discredit her story. She immediately backed down and said she would see me in court. LOL

The Trump Claim

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+5 (9 votes)

From the headlines…

This is not just a civil rights lawsuit, but no doubt a workers’ compensation claim as well…

A Hispanic woman says her non-Hispanic co-workers at a claims office in the Midwest used images of Donald Trump to racially harass her per a civil rights lawsuit she filed against her employer.

She claims that her co-workers called her an illegal immigrant. Apparently the co-workers changed her screen saver to a picture of Trump. She removed the GIF and allegedly her co-workers kept switching it back to a Trump GIF. She alleges that she received racist memes and jokes regularly as well. They also signed her up to volunteer for his campaign and she received letters from Trump’s campaign thanking her for the support and asking how she wanted to help support Trump during his Presidential run.

She also claims that when her office was putting together a potluck menu a co-worker told her that she could not attend because she was an “illegal immigrant.”

The lawsuit alleges that after she complained about the harassment, the company accused her of falsifying timecards and was terminated. She states that when her personal items were sent to her from her former employer a note was in the box stating; “Illegal immigrants can’t vote or work. Good luck finding a job.”

The lawsuit is against her employer and supervisors and alleges that she suffered discrimination based on national origin and is owed back wages.

WRONGFUL DEATH LAWSUIT RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+6 (8 votes)

The W Hotel couldn’t possibly have known “Pretty Little Liars” director Norman Buckley’s husband would kill himself when it denied Buckley access to his room … according to new legal docs.

The W says Buckley put its Hollywood hotel staff in a damned if you do, damned if you don’t dilemma. Buckley wanted to deliver meds for PTSD and paranoia to his husband, Davyd Whaley. The hotel says letting him in would have violated Whaley’s explicit request for privacy.
According to docs, the hotel says it had no malicious intent when it denied Buckley.

Buckley sued the W for wrongful death, alleging the hotel blocking him stopped him from rescuing his husband from suicide.
The hotel is asking the judge to dismiss the lawsuit.

High Deductible Deer Claim

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+8 (8 votes)

A woman in Indiana filed a claim with us stating that she struck a deer and then hit a tree. Our investigation showed the damage to the vehicle appeared to have occurred a significant time before the claim, and that the driver stated he had run into a telephone pole two years prior. Had the accident occurred as claimed, it would have been covered under comprehensive coverage, with a $100 deductible. However, since the driver actually struck a pole, the claim would have been processed under collision coverage – with a $1,000 deductible.

As a result of the fall, Claimant fractured her hip and sustained numerous cuts, causing scarring. We paid the work comp claim. The workers who caused the incident were reprimanded and put on probation.
