People Claim Non-Existent Injuries

by Fran
(Turners Falls, MA)

The first accident I was ever in was on a clear day while driving down a rural high way. As I reached a more populated area, there was a car in front of me that kept putting on it's blinker to turn left, slowing down and then speeding up again.

I watched the car as it slowed again and the blinker went on again. However as I began to pull around it, it pulled to the right and boom instant fender bender. Luckily, there was a cop coming by as a young man jumped out of the passenger seat.

As his mother, who was driving, started to get out of the car, he told her loudly that her neck was injured and she should stay in the car. She said I'm fine, but he yelled at her again and she got back in.

Funny, I thought, since there was no damage to either car and their plastic 5-mile-an-hour bumper didn't crack. I told the cop what had happened, gave my information to him and he told me I could be on my way.

The next day in the paper I read that the woman was cited for failure to take care in turning, but I never heard from them or their insurance company after that. I guess he wasn't too impressed with the young man's claims either.

So if you are in an accident, watch out for people who claim injuries that they don't have.
