Workers Compensation

PREVENTING A SINGLE FRADULANT CLAIM COULD EASILY SAVE AN EMPLOYER TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

The vast majority of workers' compensation claims are legitimate. Most injured workers just want appropriate medical treatment and compensation for lost wages, until they can return to work.

While some workers might fake an injury just to get a few days off, fraudulent claims usually involve upwards of 120 days off work and significant lump-sum settlements. Surveillance is useful in situations of suspected Worker Compensation Fraud. When dealing with Workers Compensation, we will work with you and your insurance carrier to expose fraudulent employee claims.

Unfortunately, fraud has become a widespread problem in the insurance industry generally and especially in the workers' compensation area. One of the ways the industry has made some inroads in combating fraud is through the use of good investigators conducting surveillance in workers compensation investigations.

In the course of an investigation when witness interviews, doctors' reports, and other evidence point toward possible fraud by the claimant -- it is essential that prompt efforts are made to document that fraud through surveillance.

Utilizing standard investigative and surveillance techniques, we can track the movements of an individual and document his or her activities, all without their knowledge. These activities will be captured in still photographs and/or video to document the fraud.

At the conclusion of our surveillance, we will document our findings in an Investigative Report and turn over any photographic evidence and reports for use in settlement of the claims process.
