Workers Compensation fraud is a hidden cost to business. It has two components. The first is the increase in charges from industry average, as you gain an insurance history of claims. The second is the cost of civil claim, that follow many fraudulent claims. This is seen by the business years later. We are experienced Gold Coast Workers Compensation fraud investigators, we are here to assist.
We all accept that accidents, and incidents, happen in the workplace, that people do get injured. The insurance is there to ensure these people are looked after, and hopefully return to work. These are not the people we target. We investigate where the original claim was suspect, where the injury was illogical, where the claimant keeps getting worse not better, the claim changes, there is no effort to rehabilitate, to be involved in return to work activities, to keep the employer updated, or the employee breaks off communications. There are times when the employer becomes aware of new business ventures, or activities inconsistent with claimed restrictions. These are the matters we investigate.
The basic tools of the investigator, in these matters, are factual investigations (talking to people, taking affidavits), surveillance, and electronic research (searches). Surveillance is almost always done before any factual work, where both are required, to avoid ripples. We are experienced in all facets of these investigations. We have been investigating suspect claims for many years, successfully. When you require a Gold Coast Workers Compensation fraud investigator, call us.
The insurer, be it the Government WorkCover insurance, or private Workers Compensation insurance through a broker, is in a difficult position, because, once a claim is accepted, they become a rehabilitation coordinator; this does not align with the employers needs, where fraud is suspected. At the end of the process, years later, they may cross back to being aligned with the employer, who pays the insurance, when the matter is before a court. This is sometimes too late. This is where the Gold Coast private investigator, the Workers Compensation investigator, the WorkCover investigator, comes into the picture.
The employer can legally use a licensed private investigator to gather evidence, to prove that there is fraud, that the employee is not as restricted as claimed, that they are working elsewhere. Gathering evidence is what we do.
