Insurance Companies Conduct Investigations to Undermine Personal Injury Claims

Posted Thursday, December 18, 2014 by Chris Thayer

Insurance adjusters occasionally initiate an undercover investigation if they question the validity of a personal injury claim or believe the claimant is withholding pertinent information about his medical condition. The evidence an adjuster obtains from an investigation could make it easier for the insurance company to deny the claim or significantly reduce the settlement amount. Consulting a personal injury attorney in Seattle will improve your chances of receiving fair compensation for your losses.

How Investigations Help Insurers Gather Facts about the Claimant’s Injuries

The adjuster or a private investigator usually performs a background check on the claimant to find out if he has filed other injury claims. Some investigators attempt to obtain recorded statements from other parties involved in the accident and witnesses of the accident. The private investigator may ask the claimant’s neighbors questions about the claimant’s medical condition and daily routine. The investigator could also take photographs or videotape the claimant engaging in activities that may undermine the credibility of the claimant’s assertions. An experienced Seattle personal injury attorney is aware of the different tactics used by the insurance companies and knows how to protect your best interests.
