10 Utterly Bizarre Compensation Claims People Won

Toilet Trouble

Despite the fact that school toilets are generally only supposed to be used by students, and so are normally smaller than usual facilities, a teacher was awarded $20,000 in compensation when he fell off one and dislocated his shoulder.

Hot Tub Sucker

Hot tubs are supposed to be a relaxing environment where people can unwind after a hard day’s work or a session at the gym. What they are not supposed to do is suck women in through the filters, causing them severe back injuries. It took several hours for the gym member to be removed by firefighters and she was eventually given $20,000 as compensation.
