Case Study: Surveillance
Orange County Workers’ Comp Fraud
The Vice President of Administration at a major insurance category saw us on TV. We met with executives at their Newport Beach office to discuss the case.
The company believed they had a number of people faking injuries in order to receive worker’s compensation payouts, and they wanted us to investigate.
Our private investigators provided surveillance on a number of individuals and discovered 12 people faking injuries. These cases were referred to the local District Attorney, as well as the Office of the California Insurance Commissioner, so these individuals could be prosecuted.
False worker’s compensation fraud costs companies millions of dollars a year. The private investigators at Martin Investigative Services have the experience and expertise to crack down on these false claims and provide court-admissible evidence of their fraud.
