Blind Driver

VN:R_U [1.9.1_1087]
+8 (10 votes)

Our insured was sued for causing an accident involving multiple cars. It turned out he had an eye condition, which contributed to the accident. He had problems seeing peripherally. We ended up filing a 3rd party complaint against the State, because they issued insured a driver’s license even though he failed the eye test. They allowed insured to take the test over and over again until he passed it.

BLOW HARD

We received a group medical claim for a  32 year old woman was admitted to the emergency room after blowing her nose very hard that actually caused her right eye to swell to the size of a golf ball.  Upon release she was able to move her eye and see clearly, despite the swelling.  However, a CT scan revealed that she had orbital emphysema, a swelling caused by air the soft tissues around the eye. The scan also showed a nasal bone fracture.  She has no recollection of any other injury to her nose.

The patient received antibiotics and made a full recovery.  However, as this is cold and flu season think about this poor woman before you blow your nose really hard.

While I was working at an airline, a customer claimed damage to the contents of her suitcase. When we examined it, she was correct. Her clothes and other items were burnt. She claimed that somehow the airline caused this damage. Upon further examination, we found Claimant’s e-cigarette in her suitcase, which was ultimately determined to have caused the fire in her suitcase and the damage to its contents. We denied the claim.

Frozen At Work

A Las Vegas spa where an employee was found frozen and dead inside a liquid nitrogen chamber used for cryotherapy treatments. A 24 year old employee was found “rock solid frozen” in a chamber which is used to provide treatments for pain, aiding weight loss, improving healing and increasing blood circulation. Some salons offer cryotherapy facials as an anti-aging remedy. Cryotherapy involves placing users inside a chamber with sub-zero temperatures for just a minute or two to relieve pain. “Patients are not allowed to utilize the chamber unsupervised. It appears that the employee did so after the facility was closed.

Given the deceased was an employee of the salon her family is apt to file a claim against the owner’s workers’ compensation coverage. Interestingly enough, Nevada regulators ordered the facility shut down because the owners were not able to provide proof of workers’ compensation insurance.

No Work Comp Benefits for Mom Stabbed by Son

A woman in Pennsylvania had been granted workers comp benefits after she had her throat cut and was stabbed many times in the chest by her son!

The Mother was at the time being paid by a state-funded program to care for him at home. He attacked her after bursting into her bedroom one night. She lost the use of one of her arms and suffered psychological injuries at the hand of her son.

The Court indicated that her injuries were work related because she was being paid by the state funded program to care for him. The lower court had stated the state contract required her to be in her home with her son at the time.

Subsequently, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the state contract did not required the Mother to live with her son, it was convenient, but it was not mandated by the state-funded program.

Therefore she was not entitled to workers comp benefits.

STRIPPER IS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED AND WINS $3.9 MILLION DOLLARS

A stripper has been awarded $3.9 million in a sexual assault lawsuit against a wealthy Colorado rancher. Neighbors had to break into the rancher’s luxurious estate to pull him off the stripper as he hit her and sexually assaulted her on his kitchen table in February 2013. Her victory over her estranged lover last week has been hailed as a rare triumph for sexual assault victims.

However, her lawyers have slammed the reduction of his charge from felony sexual assault to misdemeanor sexual contact.

She met the wealthy rancher in 2012 when she was working as an exotic dancer in Denver. According to the lawsuit, they started a romantic liaison in October 2012, during which he lavished her with gifts and gave her a $100,000-a-year job as a creative director on his ranch and part ownership in his meat business. Weeks later she ended the relationship, cut business ties with him and moved out. However, he continued to pursue her.

In February 2013, she agreed to come over to smoke marijuana and reconcile.  But when she arrived, he forced her on to the kitchen table and began sexually assaulting her. She tried to pull away, screaming so loud the neighbors ran over to investigate. Eventually, the neighbors broke in through the back garden and found him sexually assaulting her, and pulled him off her. She was left with bruises and cuts on her arms. The men who rescued her testified, adding weight to her claim and thus she was awarded $3.9 MILLION DOLLARS.

BEE CAREFUL

We received a funny auto claim today. Our insured was driving home and was less than a block away from her house. She felt something on her left leg. She shook her left leg and a few minutes later she again, felt something moving. She reached down with her left hand to swat her leg and was stung by a bee. She advised she immediately lost control of her car and “freaked out.” She proceeded to run over three different sets of mailboxes and then ran into the side of her DAD’s car that was sitting in the street to the right of the driveway. Her Dad’s car hit a van parked at the end of the driveway.

She did extensive damage to all of the cars. Luckily no one else was inside the vehicles The funny part of the claim was that the van she hit was an Exterminator vehicle in her driveway as her Dad wanted him to spray for excessive bees in their yard. The side of his van was painted with the Logo “BEES BE GONE.” Ooops, one must have snuck into her car before she left home.

Zoo Love Triangle

How’s this for a probable workers’ compensation claim?

A former meerkat expert at London Zoo apparently attacked a monkey handler with a wine glass at a work Christmas party. The monkey handler suffered facial injuries as a result of the attack. The attack stemmed from a love triangle between the meerkat expert, the monkey handler and a llama-keeper!

No animals were injured as a result of the love triangle.
