Workman’s Compensation Investigation in New York City

Worker’s compensation is an important type of insurance coverage that helps to ensure that employee medical expenses and wages are paid when workplace accidents occur. Unfortunately, the insurance is subject to abuse, and many employees have taken advantage of it to receive money based on false injury or illness claims. Sometimes these employees fake an illness or injury or exaggerate real problems. In other cases, they get injured during their own time and then claim that it occurred at work. These types of abuses are fraud and can often be discovered only through a thorough investigation.

Workman’s Compensation Investigators Protect Your Company

Fraudulent workman’s compensation claims can directly harm your business. They can cause unwarranted insurance rate increases, impact your productivity, and create strife and turmoil in the workplace. And while legitimate workplace-related injuries and illnesses should be respected, fraudulent claims are too common to be ignored. The good news is that competent, experienced investigators have the expertise and skills needed to identify fraud and gather the evidence you need to successfully challenge fraudulent compensation claims.

Workman’s Compensation Investigations and What They Look For

Few companies have the in-house resources to conduct effective compensation investigations on their own. That’s why so many New York City firms rely on the professionals at ISS to help them properly investigate suspicious claims to ensure that workman’s compensation insurance payments are only delivered to deserving recipients. But what do these investigations look for to prove or disprove a specific claim? At ISS, our investigators will:

  • Investigate the claimant’s story. In most fraudulent claims, the employee will have no witnesses to the injury, or will provide inconsistent details when describing the incident.
  • Check for any history of compensation claims made by the employee in the past. In many instances, these claimants develop a pattern of such behavior over time.
  • Conduct surveillance in a discreet way, capturing video evidence in accordance with state law. If your employee is faking an injury or illness, we will gather the evidence you need to prove it.
  • Provide a comprehensive report to bolster the surveillance evidence, providing you with everything you need to contest a fraudulent claim.

If your company suspects that an employee’s workman’s compensation claim is illegitimate, you need a professional workman’s compensation investigation to successfully contest the claim. International Security Services, Inc. (ISS) can conduct the workman’s compensation investigation you need to uncover fraudulent claims and protect your business.

Who uses private investigation services?

Many people and companies have questions that only an investigation can answer. For example, you may wonder whether a spouse is being unfaithful, desire to learn more about your adoption, or want to run a background check prior to marriage. Businesses often need help investigating potential fraud, screening employees, or conducting due diligence before mergers, acquisitions, or overseas expansions. International Security Services, Inc. can help with those and other investigation needs.

Why can’t I just investigate on my own?

Obviously, you could try to investigate just about anything on your own. However, there’s a reason why people and companies choose private investigators to get the answers they need. Proper investigations take time, resources, and skill sets that most laypeople lack. In addition, many people are unfamiliar with legal issues related to surveillance and other investigative concerns and can thus easily run afoul of the law during any do-it-yourself investigation.

Why should I choose ISS?

ISS investigators have the expertise and experience you need to get the answers you deserve. Our investigators are all licensed professionals with skills sets that include intelligence gathering and counterintelligence measures, and they’re backed by state-of-the-art investigative tools and techniques.

Can you help me with overseas investigations?

We can. At ISS, we are fluent in both English and Russian, and familiar with the Russian community. As a result, we can provide quality investigative services in both the U.S. and the nations that were once part of the Soviet Union.

What should I know about my investigators?

You should only consider investigators who are properly licensed, bonded, and insured, and who have a proven track record of success. ISS investigators meet and surpass those expectations, which is why our team can offer the most effective investigation services in New York City and abroad.

Should I be concerned about discretion?

When you hire ISS investigators, discretion is a priority. We conduct covert investigations to ensure that subjects remain unaware that they are being surveilled or otherwise investigated. New York statutes require that investigators only release your information if you request it or a court orders such information to be divulged. Otherwise, information that we share with one another is considered confidential. That includes information that you provide during any consultation, even if you decide not to hire ISS.

Are there limitations and things you can’t investigate or do?

Of course. For example, private investigators are not allowed to surreptitiously obtain credit report information without written consent or record conversations without at least one party’s knowledge. We do not harass targets, violate local, state, or federal law, or otherwise conduct ourselves in any way that might be considered immoral or unethical. We can, however, use every legal tool at our disposal to ensure that you get the answers you need.
