Insurance Claim Form Gaffes
Below are actual insurance claim form gaffes. These are the collection made by Norwich Union for their annual Christmas magazine. (I believe from the UK)
"I started to slow down but the traffic was more stationary than I thought."
"I pulled into a lay-by with smoke coming from under the bonnet. I realised the car was on fire so took my dog and smothered it with a blanket."
Q: Could either driver have done anything to avoid the accident?
A: Traveled by bus?
A Norwich Union customer collided with a cow. The questions and answers on the claim form were:
Q: What warning was given by you?
Q: What warning was given by the other party?
"On the M6 I moved from the centre lane to the fast lane but the other car didn't give way."
"Three men approached me from the minibus. I thought they were coming to apologise. Two of the men grabbed hold of me by the arms, and the first slapped me several times across the face. I Knee'd the man in the groin, but didn't connect properly, so I kicked him in the shin."
"I didn't think the speed limit applied after midnight"
Q: Do you engage in motorcycling, hunting or any other pastimes of a hazardous nature?
A: I Watch the Lottery Show and listen to Terry Wogan.
"Windscreen broken. Cause unknown. Probably Voodoo."
"The car in front hit the pedestrian but he got up so I hit him again"
"I had been driving for 40 years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident."
"I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother-in-law and headed over the embankment."
"Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have."
"I thought my window was down, but I found out it wasn't when I put my head through it".
"A pedestrian hit me and went under my car".
"In an attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole."
"I was on my way to the doctor with rear end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to have an accident."
"To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front I struck the pedestrian."
"My car was legally parked as it backed into the other vehicle."
"An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my car and vanished."
"I am sure the old fellow would never make it to the other side of the road when I struck him."
"The pedestrian had no idea which way to run, so I ran over him."
"I was thrown from the car as it left the road. I was later found in a ditch by some stray cows."
