Worker’s Compensation

Workers' Compensation fraud occurs when a claimant, employer, or health care provider knowingly lies in order to gain an advantage, money, or other benefit.  Since worker compensation claims are rarely disapproved by the employer, this has become an easy way to use fraudulent compensation claims for personal profit.  Furthermore, employees often learn how to perpetuate this type of fraud from each other.  If left unchecked, workers' compensation fraud has a snowball effect – negatively impacting the insurance company, then the employer and, finally, the legitimate worker.

Advocate Investigative Agency works to fight workers' compensation fraud by detecting fraud quickly and preserving evidence before it is lost or becomes unusable.  Findings from video surveillance give an objective view of a person’s physical capabilities and daily activities as related to his or her claim of injury.  This evidence becomes a solid, effective negotiating tool when an individual’s alleged injury is contradicted by videotaped evidence.

Automotive Liability

Advocate partners with claims adjusters, special investigations units (SIU), and attorneys to investigate suspected fraud related to automobile accidents.  Video and photo surveillance of an allegedly injured person is used to rebut claims of injuries in an auto accident as well as other personal injury cases.  Because of the frequency of auto accidents and resulting claims, outside assistance is imperative in settling claims.

Advocate provides the following services to assist with both claims and litigation:

Photographing the accident scene and evaluation of conditions on the day of the accident

Analysis of the police report including verification of information given by the parties and interviews of responding emergency personnel

Interviews of parties and any other witnesses and affected personnel background and surveillance of claimant
