And the Oscar goes to… We’ve all faked being sick a time or two in order to avoid going to school. You’d fake a stomach ache, and when you were bent over, you’d lick your palms to make them feel clammy. Can you tell that we’ve watched “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” before? While most of us grow out of this phase, there are some people who take it to the extreme. In those cases, an attorney might find it necessary to hire an insurance fraud investigator to gather evidence of a scam.
Insurance fraud is committed when people purposefully deceive an insurance agency. Why do people do this? The main reason is greed; people exploit insurance companies for financial gain. It can be committed by policyholders, claimants, applicants, or even insurance agents.
You might be wondering why an attorney would need to utilize an insurance fraud investigator. The answer is simple; attorneys will often hire a private investigator to prove a crime has been committed. And yes, insurance fraud is a crime and punishable offense. Any person who commits this type of fraudulent activity may find themselves facing prison time, probation time, hefty fines, community service, and restitution.
At Jager Investigations, we have over 25 years of experience assisting attorneys by investigating insurance fraud claims. Our investigators are highly experienced and trained to provide comprehensive and thorough investigations. If you believe a crime has been committed, Jager’s investigators will use every tool in our arsenal to confirm your suspicions.
Attorneys hire us to observe the movements of a suspected criminal. We begin our due diligence investigation by locating the suspect. As soon as we find them in a public setting, we perform surveillance in accordance with the laws. Once we have all the evidence recorded, we submit it – along with any other necessary information – to our client.
When it comes to general investigations, there are two different kinds: domestic cases and auto accidents. We work with attorneys and insurance companies to help track and record the daily activities of a suspect and report back with our findings. Our attention to detail, focus, and commitment to our clients contribute to our success during our investigations.
