    Do You Suspect Insurance Fraud & Require Insurance Surveillance for Investigations?

    As injured worker surveillance specialists Leatherneck Investigations recognizes that employee injury fraud represents a steep cost to small business budgets today. Worker injury fraud drives up budgets, decreases productivity and impacts staff morale.

    At Leatherneck we put top rated/professional fraud investigators in the field to conduct surveillance on employees with injury claims. Our 20 years of experience in exposing injury fraud gives us the advantage when combating this growing area of abuse. The evidence and testimony we provide insures that the investment in the fraud prevention pays off for the employer.

    My worker quit and is now claiming a work injury how can we prove he is not injured?

    One of the common patterns of fraud involving injured workers is quitting the job as they are claiming to have been injured. By quitting, the claimant can avoid ongoing scrutiny. In many cases it frees them up to move on to another job while claiming they are unable to work.

    The good news is that often these fraudulent claims have not been planned out well. They may lay low for a matter of days or weeks, but sooner or later they will get restless or in need of cash and either venture out back into the work force or start to conduct normal activities such as sports, home and auto repairs or yard work.

    At Leatherneck we put experienced surveillance investigators in the field to observe and follow your ex-employee and document their activities. We specialize in maintaining close in surveillance in order to get the pertinent evidence and far enough away to not be observed. We collect video evidence that when combined with the investigator's testimony will prove the fraud is taking place.

    Our workers comp insurance company will not investigate a fraudulent injured workers claim; can you conduct surveillance for us?

    On many occasions when a business owner or manager suspects worker injury fraud they can be frustrated by the reluctance of their worker compensation carrier to conduct surveillance to watch and follow the suspected employee. At Leatherneck we can help you conduct your own insurance fraud investigation using the same skills and techniques that we do for the worker compensation insurance companies.

    If you believe you or your company are the victim of a fraudulent injured worker claim and you do not have an worker compensation insurance company that you believe is not adequately pursuing the fraud, you may want to consult with your legal counsel or an attorney familiar with these matters to help you strategize your response. They can then advise you as to the best course to implement Leatherneck’s injury fraud surveillance skills to defeat the claim.

    In some cases an individual or business owner will find themselves uninsured for work related injuries. This can happen for a number of reasons and at Leatherneck we can step in to the void of coverage and work directly with the individual or business to investigate the claim and provide professional injury fraud surveillance and the resulting video evidence to refute the claim.

    Our employee is claiming they are sick a lot and going to the doctor, can you follow them to see what they are up to?

    If you have an employee who you believe may be abusing sick leave or missing work for non-existent medical appointments you can hire a private investigator to follow them and see what they are up to. The investigator will conduct surveillance and obtain video evidence to document their activities.

    It is of paramount importance to hire an experienced, professional surveillance investigator because of their knowledge and skill sets that allow them to follow and observe people without being noticed. If this critical process is left up to an amateur such as another employee or a friend to do this on your own, you or your company can be at risk of being discovered and you could expose yourself to possible civil liability. In addition the experienced private eye will be aware of what is needed to collect effective evidence that stands up in court should the matter ever be litigated.

    Any many cases, the suspected activity of the employee is hard to predict in advance then you would need to hire the private investigator in advance and retain them to work on your case. Then if the employs begins suspected activity on short notice you or your company can contact the investigator, provided the scheduling permits, have them initiate surveillance on short notice.
