Personal Injury Investigators

Investigating Fraud

Personal injury surveillance is the act of quietly watching people who have made personal injury claims to ensure they are telling the truth about their injuries. The UK government says many fraudulent auto insurance claims include false personal injury claims. These false claims add up to £14 million in fraudulent liability insurance claims yearly.

Our dedicated private investigators are experts at looking into this kind of fraud, and they offer surveillance services to make it harder for personal injury scammers to hurt people. Contact us to set up a free 30-minute meeting to discuss how we can help protect you from unfair claims.

What Is the Purpose of Personal Injury Surveillance?

Claiming without Good Reason

Verifying the authenticity of a claimant’s stated injuries and limits is the purpose of personal injury surveillance. Our investigators try to get video evidence that contradicts the claimant’s statements to see if they are accurate about their insurance claims. This monitoring aims to get us solid proof that the effects of injuries may be overstated. Even though monitoring is standard, it can have different effects on the general value of a claim.

Our legal experts know how complicated surveillance evidence can be. We carefully look at the insurance claim’s background to ensure that an accuser’s case is judged fairly and accurately. When the defence insurance company shows video footage, our experienced personal injury investigator will do these following things:

Give You Surveillance Caution

Our experienced personal injury investigator will tell the client at the start of the case that the other side may try to collect video proof during the case. It is essential to remember that even though monitoring is standard, it only sometimes works. This advice helps to set realistic goals by emphasising that real problems dealing with severe injuries are more likely to be evident than dishonest actions seen during regular monitoring.

Personalised Legal Support

Our dedicated investigators are actively working to get all raw video footage and the logs and operation records that go with it. We can compare the video footage to the time logs by being very careful. We carefully review every piece of evidence, looking for any gaps or strategy changes that might affect your case. You can put your actions in their proper context by carefully reviewing trimmed and uncut videos in this personalised process. Finding any problems and strengthening your defence against possible dishonest tactics is essential.

Surveillance Review Process

Our investigator will go over the monitoring proof with you very carefully. It’s essential, even though it takes time. You might have a good context for what was seen by giving background information. This step helps build a complete picture, ensuring your side of the story is fully known. It’s a good idea to check that everything is clear and that your point of view is considered in light of the proof given.

Engage Video Evidence Specialist

In some cases, our experienced personal injury investigators may need the help of a video-proof expert. This expert, who knows a lot about shooting and editing, carefully reviews edited and uncut videos to find any problems or questionable behaviour. By sharing their knowledge, they can help us find any mistakes or tricks in the facts that make us question their reliability. The expert’s thorough report is beneficial when you want to ask about the accuracy of security footage. It makes your case stronger against possible lies or unfair portrayals.

We conduct personal injury surveillance for insurance providers and litigation defendants. In routine surveillance, we’ll discreetly observe the claimant’s movements to verify whether the injuries they claim they’ve sustained are legitimate.

Chances are if a lawyer is taking the claim, a medical expert is already prepared to go on record to support the claims. We can’t prove that someone is or isn’t in pain, but we can confirm whether the claimant is lying or exaggerating how their life has been affected, which is enough to discredit a claim.

To be successful, a claimant will usually have to prove how their daily life has been affected by their injury or illness. As a result of the accident or illness, has there been a change in any of the following:

Fighting Unjustified Claims


Workplace accidents and road traffic collisions that result in injury will usually involve insurance claims. It’s becoming more and more common for insurance companies to investigate these claims because, although the number of workplace accidents and road traffic collisions is going down year on year, the proportion of claims is increasing.

In cases where the damage is obvious and egregious, surveillance won’t be necessary, but for less tangible injuries and illnesses, like whiplash and chronic pain, insurance companies should begin surveillance as soon as someone starts their claim. This is because, as time goes on, the chance of a personal injury lawyer warning claimants of the possibility of insurance surveillance increases, which means that they’re more likely to put on appearances of their injuries in public.

In our experience, however, fraudulent claimants don’t tend to be very adept at feigning their injuries. In the past, we’ve collected footage that shows the claimant using their walking stick as a sort of accessory, swapping it between hands when crossing the street, and swinging it around while walking.

Proving Fraud

Successful Personal Injury Surveillance Example

We were once asked to conduct surveillance on someone claiming for severe whiplash in a car accident. The claimant alleged that he had sustained extensive muscle damage in the accident, leaving him with restricted movement and unable to carry out daily activities like driving, shopping, and washing himself.


We conducted an unintrusive, week-long surveillance campaign and were able to get time-and-date stamped footage of him driving to the gym, where he lifted heavy weights, as well as of his visits to the shops. We did record him carrying large boxes for his mother, but we could prove that they contained heavy vegetables.
