Observations have, and always will play a huge role in the investigation industry. Evidence gathered through observations is typically the most convincing evidence available in court – and can be the difference between proving and disproving several cases, providing it has been carried out in an appropriate and legal manner, and that video documentation has taken place.

Sometimes the only way to get the evidence needed in a case is to have feet on the ground; people who can see and report what your [partner/business partner/director/staff] is/are doing on a daily basis.

Despite there being a number of DIY observation gadgets available on the market, in most cases we highly recommend hiring a professional and thorough team of investigators to carry out this observation on your behalf.

Observations for Insurance Fraud

Insurance-related observations are a major element of an investigators work, as Claim Adjusters do not have the time of resources to investigate whether claimants are telling the truth. Therefore, in scenarios where there is a case for reasonable doubt, using observations helps to give an unbiased view of what actions a claimant has undertaken, especially if the claim pertains to personal injury. As in some cases, it has been proven that a personal injury claimant has been perfectly able-bodied, leaving them liable for insurance fraud.
