After all these years, we’ve certainly seen or heard claims that made us scratch our heads & wonder.
Think of these the next time you get ready to file a claim…
Client: This guy was all over the road. I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him.
Insurance Agent: So let me get this straight, you were purposely trying to hit the other car? Hmm (scratches head). Perhaps you swerved a number of times to try to avoid him but were unable and eventually hit him?
Client: I had been driving for forty years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident.
Insurance Agent: Perhaps you were very tired after being asleep at the wheel for forty years?
Client: Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree that I don’t have.
Insurance Agent: (Awkward silence…)
Client: My car was legally parked as it backed into another vehicle.
Client: I was going into work at 7am this morning when I drove out of my driveway straight into a bus. The bus was at least 5 minutes earlier than usual.
Insurance Agent: Whether or not the bus was early is totally irrelevant isn’t it?
Client: When I saw I couldn’t avoid a collision I stepped on the gas and crashed into the other car.
Client: I was unable to stop in time and my car crashed into the other vehicle. The driver and passengers then left immediately for vacation with injuries…
Client: I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way.
Insurance Agent: If the truck was stationary how was it coming the other way?
Client: I honestly didn’t think the speed limit applied after midnight…
Client: I knew the dog was possessive about the car but I wouldn’t have asked her to drive it if I had thought there was risk involved.
Client: The car in front hit the pedestrian but he got up so I hit him again.
Client: I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother-in-law and head over the embankment.
Client: An invisible car came out of nowhere, stuck my car and then vanished into thin air.
Client: I got into an accident.
Insurance Agent: What happened, are you okay?
Client: In an attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole.
