Injury & Insurance Investigations

Fraudulent injury and insurance claims cost billions of pounds each year, we obtain evidence to support or discredit these claims.

Claim Validation

The increase in fraudulent insurance claims has a dramatic effect on the premiums paid by everyone, in recent years we have seen a significant rise in the number of fraudulent and exaggerated claims. Most insurance claims will be subject to some form of claim validation and this can range from a routine telephone interview with the claimant to an in-depth investigation requiring covert surveillance to assess impact the accident has had.

We have provided support to a number of insurers having difficulty assessing precarious claims, in many situations they are aware that the claim has some truth to it but need to clarify the extent of the damage or injury. The evidence we obtain and the reports we present serve as invaluable testimony in many cases and have drastically reduced the insurers financial liability.

We ensure that the evidence we provide is indisputable, during the planning of every operation we will request specific details about the claim and agree exactly what evidence will be required to reach a conclusive decision.

Through our experience and the insurers knowledge of the claim we can eradicate any ambiguity by presenting clear and concise evidence.

Some investigations are concluded within a single day of Surveillance whilst others can take weeks. We will agree an acceptable timescale for the operation and although it is subject to change we will always ensure that the investigation is proportionate to the claim we are investigating.
