After a claim is filed, the insurance carrier or other party may hire an investigator to look for any information that can be used against your case. Sometimes they believe that their investment to hire an investigator may yield valuable results that result in a lower value for your case (i.e.-catching you doing something you say cannot or should not be doing). Not only will your claims history be investigated, and back-ground and credit checks performed, but you may be followed, filmed, and recorded without your knowledge. For these reasons, it is imperative that you strictly follow doctors’ orders and avoid any activities that would otherwise be construed as contrary to the injuries claimed.
