Strange Claims Indeed 1

July 21, 2008

The winner is, Joan E Quagenti, M.Ed., ITP training/communications manager, account service and sales operations, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.

Claims Journal’s strange claims contest culminated Friday with Quagenti’s submission recounting a claim filed years ago when she worked as a property/casualty underwriter. As matter of course, she read a countless aggregate of claims sheets to revise her on loss activity. In one instance, she read about an auto repair shop owner who always brought his dog to work. One day, while at the garage, a door inadvertently crashed down on one of the dog’s legs. Later, in lieu of veterinary expenses, the owner submitted a workers’ comp claim on behalf of the company’s employed watchdog.

Claims Journal received a mass of uncanny to unprecedented claim submissions too brilliant not to share. In their honor, Claims Journal dedicates Strange Claims Indeed, a weekly short from the contest submissions to appear on
