If you’re like us, you love hearing stories about the crazy things that happen in your industry. School teachers love swapping stories about the comments their students make in class (or excuses they come up with!) Military personal swap combat stories. And as you might guess, we also have our own pile of stories to talk about.
Now, we’re not going to share any of the stories from our office – we would hate to see one of the clients we love so much recognize their stories online. But here are some stories and insurance claims that may entertain you a little bit…
We thought this insurance story was mortifyingly funny:
“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.”
Sometimes we love how very honest and direct people are on their insurance claim:
The claimant had collided with a cow. The questions and answers on the claim form were:
Q: What warning was given by you? A: Horn.
Q: What warning was given by the other party? A: Moo.
Here’s a good reason to practice your driving skills as well as have insurance:
“I had been learning to drive with power steering. I turned the wheel to what I thought was enough and found myself in a different direction going the opposite way.”
Can you imagine being the insurance agent asked to process this claim:
“A house hit my car.” (A house was being moved by a large truck. My friend had his car parked on the side of the road correctly. The house began to tilt off the truck and eventually fell off the truck, landing on my friend’s car. He eventually had the insurance paid, after a lengthy explanation and the moving company confirming the story.)
You know, as funny as these stories are, they are really only funny after the fact. Imagine being the person who had to fight with an insurance agency about a claim. What if the man who had a house fall on his car was never compensated, despite being insured? We wouldn’t be laughing then.
So here’s the question of the day: what are your best odds for being able to laugh after an accident or after making an insurance claim? We have that answer: you need an advocate in the insurance world.
At Arizona Capital Insurance we’re here to make sure that you’re taken care of. We don’t work for insurance agencies, we work for you. And whether your accident or claim is straightforward and you get compensated right away, or it’s something that needs a little bit more time and investigating, we are here for you.
