Buffalo Insurance Claims…

And it’s not just workers’ comp or general liability carriers that have to cope with animal-related claims. Auto insurers should also be on the alert.

From Insurancenews.net:
It’s not just workers’ comp or general liability carriers that have to cope with animal-related claims. Auto insurers should also be on the alert.

As one lady said:
“As an agent of only five years at the time, the strangest claim I had ever heard was when one of my insureds called to report an attack by buffalo to his van,” wrote Sue Vargovich, an agent with Effler Schmitt Company in Toledo, Ohio.

The insured had been driving through an animal safari, and the car in front of him had been feeding the animals before moving on, Ms. Vargovich wrote.

“It was then that several buffalo decided they were still hungry and started pushing the front of the vehicle, ramming and ramming until the hood and front end were damaged.” Luckily, she added, the insured was able to make his escape.

Hahahhahahaha I just had to laugh at this one.
