It’s Not Big Brother Watching… Just a Private Investigator!

If you’ve been in an accident and begun your injury case, there is a good chance that you will be the subject of some surveillance by a private investigator.

When you make a personal injury claim, it is the insurance company’s job to make sure that your story is accurate. One aspect of the investigation will be looking at medical records and history, but another option will be surveillance.

During surveillance, an investigator will record video footage of you doing your daily activities, but you will probably never know when it’s happening. The investigator is looking for discrepancies between what you say you can do and what they see you doing.

Avoid surveillance issues by keeping your lawyer and insurance company in the loop about the state of your injuries. If your condition changes, always provide updates.

Remember, surveillance cannot hurt your case if you are honest about what you can or cannot do as a result of your accident. Accuracy is key!
