Plaintiff was injured when riding on a ferris wheel that malfunctioned. The ride lurched, causing her to sustain a soft tissue back injury.

However, the videotape showed his client was partially undressed and making out with a man on the ride. Despite this turn of events, it didn’t change the fact Plaintiff was injured, because of the amusement park’s negligence. The park’s insurance carrier paid to settle the case.

Panic as runaway fuel van crashes into plane full of passengers at Boston’s Logan Airport after driver forgets to put it in park

Ripped from the HEADLINES:

A runaway fuel van has crashed into a plane full of passengers at Boston’s Logan Airport.  The truck careered into JetBlue flight 891 after its driver got out without putting the vehicle in park, police said.  Panicked passengers described a ‘big jolt’ as the van rammed into the plane’s wing and airport staff chased after the truck to stop it from smashing into another aircraft.

The Tampa-bound plane was waiting for clearance to leave the gate when the Swiss Port delivery driver failed to put his van in park, police told WCVB. The driver suddenly realized the truck was moving but was unable to stop it and fell to the ground, injuring himself. A second Swiss Port employee was able to stop the van, but not before it had collided with the aircraft’s wing and rolled underneath the plane.

Passenger Chaz Hallock, from Arlington, Massachusetts, said the plane shook as the van hit it.’I thought something with the gate had disconnected,’ he said.  ’It was hard to figure out what was really happening. That’s when I looked out the window and I saw this van and a gentleman on the ground, and I saw other people chasing the van.’

Fellow passenger David Siles described a ‘big jolt’ as the fuel van collided with JetBlue plane. ’I was in front [and] the captain jumped up and (originally) said they thought it was a landing gear collapse but then they quickly realized we were hit,’ he told WBZ-TV.  ’The issue was the truck driver got out and the vehicle re-engaged and rolled forward or was never in park. The baggage crew working the flight worked fast to stop the truck from rolling further and causing any more damage,’ he added.
The plane was seen being rolled away for repairs after the crash at around 6:oo a.m. this morning.   No on on board was hurt and they were all put on other flights to Tampa.

A JetBlue spokesman said: ‘Shortly before 6:OO am a ground operations vehicle came into contact with the aircraft operating JetBlue flight 891 at Logan International Airport while it was parked at the gate.  ’The aircraft is being inspected for damage, and customers on the flight from Boston to Tampa were accommodated on a different aircraft.’

A Puppy’s COLLAR caused massive gas explosion that partially destroyed a home!

The Puppy did it. That’s the conclusion fire investigators, have reached about a gas explosion that rocked a rental property. A mother and her three children returned home only to discover their house in shambles following a gas explosion. Luckily no one was home at the time, and the family’s four dogs were all safely removed, but the powerful blast left part of the house in ruins.

The Fire Chief determined that a puppy’s collar somehow got hooked on a gas valve in the laundry room causing a leak that resulted in an explosion. The valve opened. Gas leaked out, seeped into a vent, and flowed into the attic. Once trapped there, investigators believe either the furnace or the water heater switched on.  One of those units became the ignition source, creating an explosion that blew a hole into the house.

Apparently a clothes dryer used to be connected to the valve but the owners replaced it with an electric appliance. One of the dogs were identified as the likely culprit behind the explosion after firefighters measured the height of each of the four dogs and the position of the collars on their necks.

All of four dogs, including the puppy that caused the blast, were safely removed from the house

You just know this is going to be a laughable workers’ compensation claim! From the headlines… A man in Florida has been accused of throwing a live alligator into a Wendy’s restaurant. Apparently after the employee handed the suspect his drink and turned around the customer tossed a living alligator into the drive through window! No one was injured, but you know that there is a workers’ compensation claim or two coming from this incident! The alligator survived. It’s going to be a hard claim to dispute.

Snake Oil Salesman

We handle workers’ compensation claims and received a call from an irate injured worker complaining about treatment she received from her free choice physician. She called as she was leaving her doctors office in tears. She had gone in for a series of injections and after they were completed the physician told her that he had also given her an injection of snake venom! She was crazy upset and ultimately filed a psyche claim to go with her back injury. We have no idea why the physician did this without telling her or having it approved by UR. She now of course has a new treating physician!

Plaintiff tripped on a rug in her attorney’s office, causing injury. Plaintiff sued her own attorney for that slip and fall. It just so happened that the attorney who represented her and whose rug she slipped on, was representing her for a slip and fall, which occurred in another attorney’s office. Go figure.
