Funny excuses written on insurance claims

Funny excuses written on insurance claims.

Insurance fraud is no joke, but below are a few funny insurance fraud and claims :

• “I thought my window was down but I found it was up when I put my head through it.” Probably not the most effective way to think with your head”

• “I was driving along the motorway when the police pulled me over onto the hard shoulder. Unfortunately I was in the middle lane and there was another car in the way..”

• “Going to work at 7am this morning I drove out of my drive straight into a bus. The bus was 5 minutes early..”

• “A man in Washington State nearly got a taste of his own medicine when he attempted to kill a spider with a makeshift blowtorch. Using a cigarette lighter and a can of hairspray, he promptly set fire to his towels and the bathroom went up in flames. His insurance claim was refused because it was deemed a ‘deliberate act”

• “There’s a WHAT in your soup? Carla Patterson tried to defraud a Virginia Cracker Barrel restaurant for a $500,000 insurance settlement after claiming she found a mouse in her soup. An investigation found that the mouse didn’t have any soup in its lungs and never was cooked. She was sentenced to one year in prison”

• “For 7 years between 1993 and 2000 Isabel Parker pretended to slip and fall in various locations. After doing it nearly 49 times she filed insurance claims worth nearly a millions dollars. Unfortunately for her the insurance company didn’t fall for it”

• “The accident happened because I had one eye on the lorry in front, one eye on the pedestrian and the other eye on the car behind.”

• “A woman in the USA who had accidentally baked her cellphone inside a birthday cake had her insurance claim denied”

• “In Greece, a British tourist was so busy looking at a group of girls that he ran into a bus shelter and broke his nose. He was lucky – his insurer paid out for his medical treatment”

 

Think the next time you lay a claim with your insurance, make sure it is sensible and that it does not land up on the funniest insurance claims list.

Why Insurance is vital for the Building Industry

posted in: Did You Know | 0

Why Insurance is vital for the Building Industry

Did you know that 3% of construction workers sustain a work-related injury each year? – and these stats are just the ones that actually get reported?

In 2015/2016 a total of 43 workers were fatally injured in the construction sector!

You shouldn’t cut corners with any type of insurance but when it comes down to construction insurance, you really can’t afford to make mistakes.

When you have been awarded a contract, before you start on site you need ask yourself the following questions:

  • What if something happens?
  • Do you have enough money to cover for any loss or injury?
  • Will you be able to sustain your business if you have a huge outlay?

Being in the construction industry is a very risky business, it is unpredictable with regards to weather, machinery and the foundation you are working on.

Size doesn’t matter – Some people may think that only large national firms need construction insurance, but even if you are a small company, accidents do occur. Being careless with a blow torch could result in an accidental fire that causes hundreds of thousands of rands damage and you need to be covered.
Larger companies would be able to possibly absorb the loss of income but small companies more than likely need assistance.

If you do not have cover, some customers may not select you to do the work, as it is too much of a risk for them to use your company. They would rather use a company that is covered by insurance. So by being covered may give you more opportunities.

So in closing, if you are not covered for insurance, big or small, get covered!
