Even more car crashes

Insurance company hits: Insurance companies take in billions of dollars of premiums. However, when the tables get turned and it’s time for an insurance company to pay you a settlement because you were injured in an auto acci­dent, the insurance company sings a different tune. Furthermore,  insurers will use any excuse to avoid paying a fair settlement. Hence, some of the more common excuses are listed below.

    1. You were speeding and there­fore could not avoid the accident Highway to Hell – by AC/DC).
    2. Your car had defective equip­ment that caused the accident Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses – by U2).
    3. You failed to use a turn signal Turn! Turn! Turn! by The Byrds).
    4. You were not paying attention before the accident Don’t Stop Me Now – by Queen).
    5. There were no witnesses to the accident except for the passen­gers in your car … and they don’t count. Can I Get a Witness? by SonReal).
