TOLIET EXPLOSION CAUSES PHYSICAL AND PSYCHIATRIC INJURIES; IMAGINE BEING AFRAID TO EVER FLUSH A TOILET

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

We received a claim from a male that was checking the water pressure in his apartment. The water in the building had been turned off for maintenance. The claimant was curious about how his toilet would flush after it had been turned back on—but something went slightly wrong. The claimant flushed the toilet and it exploded, literally blasting the toilet into tiny shards of porcelain shrapnel, which the claimant was pelted with.

His wounds required 30 stitches to close, and the poor guy now stands behind a door and uses a rope to flush his toilet. He’s unable to even look at a toilet. He said in his deposition; “I can’t stop thinking about it every time I look at the bowl,”

Okay, laugh it up, but let’s see how you feel when your trusted toilet decides it would rather be a landmine right after you’ve done your business. Amazingly, this claimant was one of a total of four toilets that went “Kaboom” shortly after the water was turned back on in the building. He was the only resident who was at the building when the toilets exploded.

It’s not like we can obtain surveillance catching him flushing a toilet to lessen his psychiatric claim.

A driver reported his auto collision claim stating that he was involved in a rear-end collision. He indicated that he smashed the taillight of a car ahead. After doing so, he put his car in reverse so that he could survey the damage and then he proceeded to hit the front bumper of the driver behind him. Because his day was going so well, he opened his door to check the damage and was knocked down a passing cyclist. Three claims in one!!!

CAT LADY AND HER CAT GO CRAZY ON A PLANE

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]

We love a good cat lady story. And this one relates to a work comp claim we received from a Flight Attendant.

A woman brought her feline companion in her purse ? not a proper carrier, for the record ? aboard an international  flight from Vegas to Frankfurt, Germany.   The cat started going crazy on the plane.   The crew had to put the kitty in a bathroom to keep him calm.  This caused the “Cat Lady” to fly into a rage, punching one of the flight attendants in the face and screaming that her mob-ties would bring the plane down if she didn’t get her cat back immediately.

In the end, the plane did come down safely, dropping her and her crazy cat at the Denver International Airport with the help of two F-16 fighter jets. However, the flight attendant had to be sent to Urgent care as she was bleeding from the bop in the face she received.  Luckily it turned out to be a NO LOSS Time claim.  Crazy Cat people!

From the news…

A Navy veteran is suing after what his lawyer describes as a 16-pound pine cone fell and crushed his skull in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Navy veteran is suing the U.S. government, the National Park Service, the Department of the Interior and San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park for $5 million.

His attorney says the veteran was relaxing under a non-native pine tree at the maritime park when the cone fell, causing an irreversible brain injury.  He had two surgeries and requires a third.

The park has already fenced off the grove and added signs warning “Danger: Giant seed pod falling from tree.”

Plaintiff filed a lawsuit against our insured bowling alley, claiming she contracted fungus from the shoes she rented. Subsequently, there were several other claims related to foot issues by women who wore the same shoe size and it was believed they rented the same shoe. Discovery revealed Plaintiff had sought treatment for the same fungus a few days before bowling and that she didn’t have medical insurance. It turned out the origin of the fungus was Plaintiff. Once Plaintiff’s attorney was confronted with the pre-existing condition, he withdrew as counsel. The case was ultimately dismissed.

Although our homeowner had heard of injuries caused by people falling off hover boards, she says she had never heard that a hover board might catch fire. But just one day after using it, our homeowner’s son was charging the battery– using the charger that came with the hover board when the Mother says she saw flames shooting from both ends.

She said it was like fireworks. The middle part of the board just shot up in flames. She relayed the fire was so intense that her house was in flames within minutes.

We will have a fun Subrogation claim against the manufacturer of the Hover Board!!!!!

A WAITRESS IS SHOT AND KILLED ON THANKSGIVING WEEKEND FOR TRYING TO STOP A CUSTOMER FROM SMOKING A CIGARETTE INSIDE THE RESTAURANT

She was working the Thanksgiving shift  at a 24-Hour family style restaurant which began late Thursday night and into Friday morning.   Witnesses say she was laughing and joking with customers about Black Friday shopping right before the fatal incident.

She was shot in the head by a customer with a 9-millimeter handgun after she attempted to enforce the restaurant’s no smoking policy.  The angry customer pulled out a gun and shot her in the head.  She was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.

The customer has been arrested for first degree murder.   His friends and former employees have advised that  he previously worked as a firefighter but left the department in 2002 after being hit by a car. It is alleged that he suffered a traumatic brain injury in the accident.

Our investigation has revealed there was no horseplay and the waitress and the customer had no prior interaction for a possible personal grievance so we will pay full death benefits to her beneficiaries.

THIS MALPRACTICE CLAIM HAS MISPLACED EMBRYO’S AND A FORCED ABORTION

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+4 (6 votes)

After struggling to conceive a child a couple went to a fertility clinic for treatment. Two months later the wife was implanted with a set of embryos. But just two days after the procedure, on a SUNDAY while she was on ordered on complete bed rest, she says she got a call from the doctor telling her to come into the office immediately .

When she got to the office she had a disturbing conversation with a nurse who said she came in to check on the couple’s remaining embryos on Saturday and found that all 14 original eggs were still in the petri dish. Who’s eggs had in fact had she been implanted with? Without any explanation the doctor said he wanted to check in on how the embryos were doing. However, the claimant believes she actually underwent a very painful dilation and curettage procedure – a scraping of the cervix which is the most common method used in first term abortions. She was told to come in the next day to receive an injection of a drug that would stop some of her bleeding, but she later found out that what she really received was the drug methotrexate – a chemical abortion drug. When she realized what had happened, she hired a malpractice attorney.

The lawsuit states that the doctor failed to obtain consent for either abortion procedure. In a sworn deposition, one of the doctor’s nurses says the claimant did not sign off on the D&C until after it was performed.  Her mental anguish is understandable.

The attorney states there is NO question in his mind that this was a viable healthy pregnancy that the doctor wanted to make sure did not continue. That’s why he did two things: a chemical abortion and a surgical abortion. He wanted to be 1 Billion per cent certain this baby did not go to full term.

The couple says they never would have agreed to an abortion and believe that the couple whose embryos they received should know the truth about what happened but don’t know who they are.  The couple who’s eggs were used in error and are now missing those eggs!!!!! This is not however, part of the current lawsuit as this would be another malpractice claim.
