Personal Injury Surveillance

Personal Injury Surveillance

If you an employer or an insurer and you suspect that a claimant (employee or a member of the public) is committing fraud, specifically, by exaggerating their personal injury or even falsifying an injury, for the purpose of financial gain, then you have a lawful basis for imposing surveillance.

There are, unfortunately, unscrupulous individuals who have been involved in an RTC or an accident at work, or even a slip, trip or fall whilst visiting supermarket or social venue, who then see their misfortune as a money making window of opportunity.

These individuals are willing to deceive you, the employer, the insurer or other third party into believing that following the accident they now suffer from one or more of the following:

• The claimant cannot perform basic everyday tasks.
• The claimant's physical mobility has been severely impaired.
• The claimant can no longer work.
• The claimant's quality of life and standard of living is impacted severely.
• The claimant cannot walk property or utilise a specific limb properly.

Fraud is not a victimless crime - we all pay for it. In 2017, the Association of British Insurers revealed that the amount of fraud - a combination of liability, motor and property fraud - detected in 2017 amounted to £1.28 billion,.

Personal injury fraud is indeed ubiquitous. - whiplash claims alone cost the UK £1billion a year - and submitting a claim for a loss based on misleading or untruthful circumstances, including exaggerating a genuine claim, or being misleading or untruthful in dealings with an insurer is an offence that can attract a custodial sentence.

Professional reputation (yours and ours) is vitally important to us, you can be confident that we will always apply acceptable filming techniques. We will NEVER apply selective filming methods, and we will always endeavour to reduce collateral intrusion.

We will ensure we get close to the subject (where applicable) and obtain high quality video evidence, our professional operators can go un-noticed at social events, gyms, restaurants and bars, social events, public transport, high risk activities and sporting events (participant or spectator). Our highly trained investigators use the most up-to-date technologies available to carry out pattern of life covert surveillance.

Where our investigation corroborates your suspicions of suspected personal injury fraud, we will provide you with irrefutable evidence that details a subject's activities, movements, whereabouts and behaviours, including who they meet, where they meet, what they are doing, how long they're there for and any other information that is relevant to the case.

Our comprehensive investigation report will include surveillance logs and irrefutable date- and time-stamped video and/or photographic evidence of the subject during their daily routines. Crucially, we will provide working copies of the evidence obtained and we will retain the original (Gold) media should it be required in court.
