Workers Compensation Investigations
Employees who suffer from a workplace accident or injury may file a claim for workers’ compensation to help cover medical expenses, time off from work, and other financial burdens caused by the incident. It is then up to the insurance company to investigate these claims in order to determine what benefits, if any, the employee is entitled to. From time to time, there may be disputes regarding coverage due to misconduct on the part of the claimant, employer, or healthcare provider. Jackson Private Investigators provides professional investigative services to help our clients ensure they do not fall victim to fraud in a workers’ compensation case. We can work on behalf of employees, employers, or insurance providers to investigate and collect any potential evidence that will help to discern the legitimacy of the claim.
As an employee, you are entitled to certain benefits and protections within the workplace. Workers’ compensation exists to alleviate any financial hardships you may face as the result of a workplace accident or injury. This can include medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation or therapy costs. If you have been denied coverage for a legitimate claim, it may be in your best interest to contact a lawyer for assistance. In many cases, a private investigator can also help to collect evidence for your case if you believe that there has been intentional misconduct on the part of your employer. For example, a company may misclassify employees as independent contractors to avoid providing compensation or lie about workplace safety and working conditions in order to pay lower insurance premiums. This can affect your ability to access the benefits you are entitled to, making your recovery more difficult and stressful. Our private investigators can interview witnesses, surveil your workplace, and document any evidence of misconduct to support your case.
If you suspect that an employee may be faking or exaggerating an injury in order to fraudulently access workers’ compensation benefits, it is a good idea to enlist the services of a private investigator to help you determine the legitimacy of the claim before you pursue further actions. Our company utilizes a variety of different methods to investigate insurance claim fraud cases. From accident reconstruction to around-the-clock surveillance of the subject, we can help our clients discretely uncover the truth of matter. Our investigators are effective, efficient, and professional. They will make sure that any evidence found is properly recorded and documented for use in your investigation.
In some cases, a healthcare professional may attempt to defraud an insurance company by exaggerating the extent of a patient’s injuries or prescribing unnecessary treatments in order to extract additional medical payments. This not only costs insurance providers a significant amount of money, but also subjects the patient to unnecessary stress and inconvenience. Contact Jackson Private Investigators for assistance in the investigation of workers’ compensation claims where it is suspected that there has been fraud committed on the part of a healthcare provider.
