What I Had Meant To Say… (the wrong address case)
If you ever fall and hurt yourself, make sure to take meticulous notes. So said the Michigan Supreme Court regarding a lawsuit against the city of Hamtramck.
First, I’d love to live in a city called ‘Hamtramck.’ Second, I feel a little sorry for Ms. Jakupovic. She reported that the crack on the sidewalk that caused her fall was at 9477 Mitchell. It was actually at 9465.
The lessons here?
- Watch where you walk.
- Be meticulous when you report claims
- If you’re an insurance agent, be meticulous with street numbers, locations, etc.
- If you’re a consumer, make sure that your policies are accurate. Typos, at the very least, often happen.
I still think the city should pony up a few dollars. Maybe they have by now. This happened a long time ago.
