Car accidents » Car accident excuses

People involved in road accidents often think of themselves as blameless. Sometimes, of course, this is the case and so making a car accident compensation claim is a very real possibility.

But for every car crash claim made, there is almost always somebody to blame for causing the incident.

Some people, however, are unable to accept responsibility for their actions and refuse to admit that the incident was their fault, while some do genuinely believe that they were in the right when everybody else can clearly see that they were in the wrong.

There are a few drivers who have been involved in car accidents and who have attempted to defend themselves with the most outrageous of excuses. For example, the man who wrote on his insurance car crash claim form, In my attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telegraph pole had either a sense of humour or truly believed that trying to exterminate a fly might just absolve him from blame.

However, its not only rogue flies that has been used as an excuse when making an insurance claim following a car accident. One individual told his insurance provider, Leaving home for work I drove out of my drive straight into a bus; the bus was five minutes early.

Is this driver trying to blame the keen nature of the bus driver for the road accident or is he merely making an observation about his timekeeping? Whichever it is, it seems that hes trying to use it as an excuse to forget about the fact that he sped from his drive without first checking to see if anything was coming and he would hardly be in a position to resent any bus passengers who decided to contact no win, no fee solicitors to make seek compensation for any personal injuries they might have suffered.

The blameless

Many people just cant accept the fact that they might be to blame, or even partially to blame, for a car crash

I consider neither vehicle to blame, but if either was to blame it was the other one was also written on a claim form following a vehicle accident and is the perfect example of someone being unable to accept even the slightest degree of responsibility.

Excuses and arguments like this are only the tip of the iceberg and insurance employees throughout the world read bizarre and ridiculous explanations on car accident claim forms every day.

As the following show, some drivers insist on blaming others for what are, more than likely, their own mistakes. Here are some more examples from no win, no fee claims:

  • The telegraph pole was approaching fast. I was attempting to swerve out of its path when it struck my front end.
  • The guy was all over the road. I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him.
  • An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my vehicle and vanished.
  • I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way.

The stupid

Not all drivers attempt to blame someone else when they are involved in a road traffic accident and some are all too happy to admit to their insurance provider what really happened even if they make themselves look somewhat silly in the process.

Each of the following drivers obviously dont mind admitting they not the sharpest knife in the drawer and realise that they would not get very far were they to contact a no win, no fee solicitor:

  • Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I havent got.
  • I did not think the train ran on those lines anymore.
  • 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.

The dangerous

Britains roads may be packed full of slightly stupid drivers but there are also many out there who are simply dangerous. Every time they get in the car they run the risk of causing a car accident and woe betide anybody who happens to get in the way.

The driver who told his insurance company, The accident was caused by me waving to the man I hit last week is either incredibly unlucky or should be made to retake his test, while the individual who said, I was picking my mobile phone up from the floor of the car should probably have his license revoked immediately.

In the same vein, the person who reported, I had been driving for 40 years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident would be well advised to get some much-needed sleep.

As for whoever made the following statement on their accident form, its debatable whether a toilet, a mechanic or an English teacher would be the best solution. I let you decide.

  • I was on the way to the doctor with rear end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to have an accident.
