Surveillance on Injury Claims: Evidentiary Services are the Minnesota Private Investigators that are experts on any surveillance and investigation that involve all types of injury claims, either work comp or personal injury. We know how to scope out the claimants or defendants that we investigate pursuant to the assignment from our clients. We listen to our clients and form a good understanding of all the issues of any claim or case. We complete the proper background work before we start surveillance in the field to give our client the best chance for defense of a claim or case. That does not always mean “claim denied” and end of story. In many cases it is simply showing our client what the alleged injured party’s physical capabilities and daily activities are so they can move ahead with mitigating the claim.
Before we start the requested surveillance, we confirm the current address and occupants of that address; vehicles associated with the claimant and his or her associates/roommates/family members; we review the subjects’ social media and public records that can determine any outside employment or side hustles as possible sources of income and/or previous undisclosed injuries. We compile a list of registered boats, snowmobiles or ATVs and can use this information to determine if they are involved in any outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, sking, etc. or if they have a second lake home or cabin. We also determine if the person plays any team sports. With this important discovery investigation, we examine it for pertinence before surveillance is scheduled. Then as expert field investigators that are skilled in the art of discrete surveillance and generation of potential leads, we conduct surveillance and keep our clients well informed on our findings and recommendations going forward. The quality of evidence we present often helps claims adjusters, legal professionals, medical providers and/or judges make an informed decision on the validity of that claim.
While it may seem like a lot of work, it is vital for any investigation that all areas are brought to light and checked thoroughly to ensure the best possible outcome, so that a well informed decision can be made by all.
Professional Video Editing: As a general rule, we prefer not to send our clients raw surveillance footage. Evidentiary Services are professional video editors and we take raw HD surveillance footage and condense it into an abbreviated storyline with character generation, and video that is representative of the original footage. This is an important process because it provides an end product that is professionally prepared and can be shown to all claim professionals that make decisions on the claim, as well as a medical provider or a judge at a hearing. Our professionally prepared video of evidence holds up in court, and gets to the point immediately, eliminating unnecessary footage to show what activity was observed and the location it was taken. Both the activity and the location are vital pieces of evidence necessary for any case. Nobody wants the tedious task of poring through hours of original raw video surveillance footage to find the evidence they are looking for. The truth is, no-one should have to, and that is why we are skilled video editors who do it for you. Once we have pored through every inch of the raw surveillance footage, we put together a well-prepared, edited, condensed version that gets right to the point of the case and works so much better. This is the version that will hold up in court, and be a vital piece of information for any case. A judge is going to have much more patience for a condensed form of the video than having to constantly go through raw footage that is not always as clear as it could be. We get right to the point and eliminate the unnecessary and unimportant parts of the footage. As professional editors we make sure the quality is top notch so there is no question about what you are viewing.
Our clients are updated by text, emails and phone calls but for those a little more tech savvy, we provide the latest in online advanced reporting that keeps our clients more organized. Our client’s are provided their own user name and password to assess a website portal where written reports, video, photos, documents and other case related items are kept. A properly prepared and organized case assures a more a successful outcome. This is one of the unique advantages of hiring Evidentiary Services
