Workers’ Compensation Employer Instructed Investigations
Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group has over 25 years experience in investigating insurance fraud related to personal injury.
Lyonswood understands employers have from time to time employees who allege they are injured at your workplace and who lodge claims that have the potential to increase your costs related to premium, replacing that employee and holding the position open for them pending a recovery and return to work.
Often employers come by information that suggests the claim is less than truthful and perhaps exaggerated or even carried into the workplace from being sustained in some other unrelated workplace pursuit. Sadly, it is a common and increasing occurrence these days that the workers’ compensation insurers don’t seem to care about their clients and perhaps as a consequence of the way the current legislation is drafted are not inclined to investigate or place claims in dispute. As a consequence, claims are generally accepted and the employers insurance premium rises to appoint where it may no longer becomes viable to remain in business.
At Lyonswood, since the introduction of the current workers’ compensation legislation we have experienced an increased incidence in such matters where employers have become totally frustrated with their insurer’s inaction and are seeking a thorough objective investigation with a view to reduce or maintain insurance premium and get to the truth of the matter. Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group have also found that many insurers once presented with the evidence from an outside investigation company, will come to the party and reimburse employers for our fees. We cannot guarantee this of course.
Lyonswood has a proud history of gathering the evidence the insurers don’t believe exists or are just not interested or motivated to investigate. We can provide you the names of many other employers who have been satisfied with the quality of our investigations and the results. Contact us for an obligation and cost free consultation.
