We can perform an investigation tailored to your specific needs in order to determine the credibility of a claimant’s injuries and whether they should be the recipient of disability payments or another form of compensation.
In insurance fraud cases, the best way to determine if a claimant is exacerbating the extent of their injuries or faking them altogether is often to use a surveillance system. We can covertly collect evidence relating to where a claimant is going, how they are getting there, what they are doing, and with whom they are speaking by using recordings, photographs and affidavit evidence.
One common form of insurance fraud investigations we perform relate to WSIB claims. When an employee is unable to return to work after an accident, their claim can significantly impact the premiums an employer is expected to pay.
Additionally, failure to comply with a return-to-work program can result in serious financial consequences for the employee and the employer. By performing an investigation, we can question the validity of an employee’s injury claims and determine if they are fraudulently over-extending their recovery period.
Another form of insurance fraud relates to personal injury from slip and falls and vehicular accidents. The claimant may or may not be injured enough to warrant a substantial insurance settlement. One of the ways to determine the veracity of their claim is to put the subject under covert surveillance for a reasonable period of time to observe, document and report their activities.
What we observe, document and report may show activities substantially different than what they have claimed they are capable of performing, the result of which will save the insurer hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Throughout our experience in Canada, we have seen and videotaped those claiming to be severely injured out climbing ladders, tending to their lawn, or jogging, even though they were diagnosed with a broken vertebra, whiplash, or another physical injury.
All our surveillance investigators are fully trained, qualified and experienced in conducting covert surveillance. We use state-of-the-art equipment and custom modified surveillance vehicles.
