How can we fight a workers’ compensation claim?
If you have reason to believe that your claimant is malingering or lying about a workplace-related injury, do your due diligence. Consider the possibility of conducting surveillance, a social media investigation, or even something as simple as a check of the claimant’s activity. Using a licensed investigative firm to conduct these investigations is essential. In many cases, information will arise during the course of the investigation that speaks to a claimant’s true physical capabilities.
Provided proper chain of custody procedures are followed, you can then take information gleaned throughout the course of an investigation to the workers compensation board and pursue a fraud finding.
