In response to our crazy claims hunt, a broker sent through this gem.
A council employee was provided with a new pair of safety boots. After wearing them, he suffered a blister, which became infected. Two years later, he made a claim.
Union-financed solicitors alleged: "You failed to carry out a risk assessment of the appropriate foot hygiene requirements to ensure our client was given the correct instruction for this, and so prevent an infection occurring."
In short they never instructed him on how to wash his feet.
Our ridiculous claims competition is still open -and a bottle of bubbly is on offer for the best.
