Nubby Socks Claim

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

Claimant was getting a colonoscopy and was directed to the bathroom to change into various garments, including socks with anti-slip nubs. When Claimant walked out of the bathroom, he slipped and slid into a gurney, pushing the gurney hard into another bed where a patient was getting an I.V. inserted. Claimant sprained his ankle and suffered a large gash on his forehead; the patient on the gurney had a heart attack and the patient receiving the I.V. suffered a gash injury to the wrist and had to have a blood transfusion. This was all because the Claimant put the socks on wrong. A nurse testified that she instructed the Claimant to make sure the anti-slip nubs were on the bottom. Claimant testified that he wasn’t listening to the instructions about the socks as he was focused on whether he should put the hospital gown on with the opening in the front vs. the back.

Injury In The Trash Chute

Ripped from the headlines… This makes for an interesting claim…

Police say a Salem woman broke her leg after falling three stories down the trash chute of her apartment building early Monday morning.
The incident happened just after 5 a.m. at the Loring Towers apartment complex in Salem, according to police. When officers arrived at the scene, they were met by an emotional 19-year-old, according to the police report.
“He was hysterical and he kept saying you have to help me, you have to help me,” wrote Officer Michael Dunn in the report.

The man told police the 38-year-old woman was trying to help him retrieve his keys down the chute, the report said.

The man said he had accidentally dropped his keys down the chute with his trash, the report said. The man then offered the woman, a neighbor he knew, $20 to help him get the keys back and she agreed, the report said. Police say the man lowered the woman into the chute by her feet. When that didn’t work, he tied a sheet around her and lowered her into the chute again, say police. The sheet then ripped and the woman fell three stories into the trash compactor, the report said.

Police said the compactor turned on when the woman fell in, breaking her leg.

“Her leg was badly twisted in the wrong direction,” according to the report.

She was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment.

Police said no charges have been filed.

CHEATER FILES A WRONGFUL TERMINATION CLAIM FOR $1.5 MILLION AND OUR INVESTIGATION REVEALS SHE IS A SHAM

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

We received a wrongful termination claim for a claims examiner in San Diego. She is asking for $1.5 million dollars in damages.

After investigating the case it appears she was fired for three reasons: sleeping at her desk on more than one occasion, stealing co-workers lunches and most importantly she was caught using the company postage machine for personal use to mail 175 wedding invitations.

She alleges she was discriminated against because she is white and most of the other employees are Hispanic. Her discrimination allegations are not valid and I believe we can get this case dismissed with no buyout after we share our investigation results with our attorney.

It’s The Dog’s Fault

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

We have a claim from a home health aide who alleges that she was injured while walking a dog of the woman that she provided home health services for. The claim states that she was asked to walk the dog and did so. The claim goes on to state that while walking the dog she was pulled forward and subsequently drug down the sidewalk when the Beagle chased a rabbit. The adjuster questioned the injury after reviewing a medical report which indicated that the home health aide weighed 250 pounds. The adjuster thought that it was odd that this size dog would be able to drag a 250 pound woman. Luckily the next door neighbors had a security camera aimed at the street. The video showed the woman out walking the Beagle which she tied to a tree, and appeared to purposely trip over a crack in the sidewalk and then pull herself forward for about 50 yards on her stomach causing the scrapes and “injuries” that she sustained. The video was shown to the allegedly injured individual who immediately dropped her claim.

50 Private Investigators Can’t Be Wrong

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

Claimant claimed to have slipped and fell in a hallway of a hotel ballroom causing injury. When seeking witnesses to the alleged fall, it turned out that it was during a break of a seminar with at least 50 private investigators from insurance companies in attendance. Not one of the attendees witnessed the fall, even though at least five people remembered the obese woman dressed in purple from head to toe. The surveillance cameras didn’t show the fall and the injuries were soft tissue with no objective findings. There was insufficient evidence to pay the claim and so it was denied.

Lights Out on Church Claim

Claimant suffered headaches from florescent spot lights used during the worship music performance at the beginning and end of church services held in a school auditorium. She made a claim seeking payment for medical treatment. Claimant had attended the church for eleven years and began being bothered by the lights eight years before she told anyone of her complaints. The adjuster took a recorded statement and after extensive questioning he learned that Claimant had headaches for years before she began attending the church and that any lights bothered her–even her lights at home. She didn’t have health insurance and wanted the church to pay for her treatment. The claim was denied.
