Do you suspect that your subject may be more active than they are reporting to be? Do you suspect that they might be working at an undisclosed job? JSI’s team of surveillance specialists can help. We have years of security and surveillance experience and are ready to put it to work for you. Our professional staff is trained to conduct covert surveillance over a period of time to obtain video evidence of the subject, providing indisputable evidence and support for your case. They are trained to remain unobtrusive as they monitor a subject’s activity. Our state of the art equipment allows for video footage and still photographs in a variety of situations.
Activity checks are recommended to obtain and confirm information on subjects in order to ascertain if surveillance is warranted, taking into consideration your exposure on the subject. Activity checks include database searches to obtain the subject’s current residence and background information as well as participation in organized activities. Neighborhood canvasses can be used to obtain information about the subject and the subject’s activities.
These database and in person checks assist in determining the subject’s status. Is the person claiming disability benefits still disabled? Has a widow or widower remarried? Are they still residing in the reported location? We can assist in finding this information for you.
CLAIM WORK/ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION SERVICES
Many times witnesses and accident victims have different versions of what really occurred. Our investigators are trained to provide an investigation that will help answer the question of what actually happened. Scene canvass investigations include: photographing the loss location, canvassing the loss location for witnesses, and interviews with witnesses and law enforcement or fire personnel regarding the claim.
Everybody has a story, and somewhere in that story is the truth. Trained and experienced J.S.I. investigators get witnesses and claimants talking. Once they are talking we listen closely and guide the interview to open avenues of inquiry that get around the barriers of concealment and forgetfulness. Recorded statements are a normal part of the claims process. Our experienced and well trained staff can obtain recorded statements either in person or telephonically with the subject or witness. If the subject is represented, recorded statements are obtained through the subject’s attorney. Our staff has the experience to obtain detailed investigative statements regarding all types of claims including workers’ compensation injuries, automobile accidents, auto and property fires, auto and property theft claims, as well as personal injury claims and general liability situations.
Our professional staff can assist in the location of subjects and the execution of service of court documents.
