The Importance of Insurance Claim Investigations

Insurance claims often rely on evidence, interviews and records. The facts matter. These things are used to determine whether a claim is legitimate or not.

There are different types of claims. For example, workers’ compensation claims involve checking to see if an employee is truly injured as they claim to be and whether or not that injury occurred while the person was working. An example of a personal injury claim is when a person falls on the icy steps of a business and hurts themselves and wants the business to pay for their hospital bills. An example of a property damage/theft claim would be when a fire burns down a house or a burglar robs a business of money or merchandise. Basically, there’s a lot of money at stake when it comes to insurance claims.

The claims investigation process can involve private investigators collecting (and then reviewing) documents. They might also take statements, find and interview witnesses, photograph and inspect damaged property (or accident sites), analyze social media accounts, etc. All of these things can be useful to help determine if a claim is legitimate or not.
