I work in the offices of a very well-known insurance company and we are used to receiving hilarious excuses for car crashes but this one had us in fits. It beats the “bus stop hidden by pedestrians” and “admitted it was his fault as he’d been run over before”….
(yes, our publicity robot gets all the fan mail these days)
Please find enclosed a photo to explain the claim form attached. As you will know, we have been clients of XXXXXX for many years now and had a very hefty no claims bonus.
Yesterday we were travelling along the A38 to visit my wife’s mother, as we usually do at this time of the year, behind a removal van. I don’t mean that we always travel behind a removals van but in this instance we were.
My wife was looking in the back to find the Thermos of tea which she always makes to ensure we don’t have to stop as those roadside “ye olde tea shoppe”s are very expensive, so she was unaware of what happened next.
The back door of the removal van flew open as it changed gear to tackle the steep hill up to Okehampton and suddenly an oven hit the front of my car. While braking, unable to see, my wife threw scalding hot tea all down the back of my neck and we veered off the road with the oven still embedded in our bonnet.
You will notice that I am claiming for burns injury. My wife’s cracked rib was caused by her falling out of the car laughing at my predicament.
I do hope you will be able to handle this claim rapidly, Brian and may I say “Wheeeee” to you, as we very much enjoy your television advertisements?
