Craziest Claim of the Month – “Watch Where You Sit”

This month’s craziest claim involves an equipment retailer that services and refurbishes mining equipment. It was a normal day in the shop with each employee working hard on their respective tasks. That is until one employee decided to take a quick break and went to sit down in a nearby chair.

Unfortunately, a piece of sharp metal had been placed on the chair earlier in the day and subsequently forgotten. Without a second thought, the employee plopped down for a well-deserved rest. But instead of enjoying a short break, he found himself on the way to the emergency room with a pierced rectum. Moral of the story — look twice before you take a seat.
