Sunshine Coast Workcover factual investigation is used early in an investigation into an incident, to document the evidence, record witness affidavits (to preserve the witnesses memories, as evidence), document scenes, arrange for examination by specialist to obtain expert evidence, expert testimony for court, if required. We also document and preserve any risk management assessments, or work procedures, that relate to the incident. The Workercover investigation may include multiple interviews and the taking of affidavits, or more confrontational methods of investigation or interview, where there is evidence of fraud, or the 'setting up' of a workplace accident, to cover an off site injury. Some claims relate to aggravation of any earlier injury, in these cases the true nature of the earlier claim, or claims, may also be relevant.

Sunshine Coast Workcover surveillance is used later in an investigation, generally. Private investigator surveillance is legal, when done correctly, and the evidence obtained can be used in a court, or a tribunal. Workcover surveillance generally refers to the observation of an employee, a claimant, to compare the restrictions displayed in the real world with the restrictions claimed, and the recording of video evidence, or still images, to support those observations. We have Sunshine Coast private investigators experienced in Workcover investigation, and Sunshine Coast Workcover surveillance, when you need a Sunshine Coast Workcover investigation. Surveillance is designed to not be intrusive, nor to harm the claimant; it should only cause distress where the observed restriction, and claimed restrictions, do not mesh. Surveillance is designed to be discreet. The private investigator is an observer, when conducting Workers Compensation claim surveillance, they can only observe and record evidence of what is happening, and what restrictions are displayed in a real world setting; they will investigate, locate, and record evidence, where it appears Workcover fraud is occurring, their notes will also indicate where the restrictions observed are consistent with the claimed restriction. When something doesn't seem right, or fraud is suspected, we have Sunshine Coast private investigators available to assist in confirming or denying that suspicion.
As an employer be aware that Workcover Insurance, or for the self insured Workers Compensation insurance, is there to protect the worker, once the claim is accepted, unless there is blatantly obvious fraud. The worker's recovery, and the management of their return to work, is of primary importance to the successful conclusion of the injury management, a successful workplace rehabilitation; you may find that you, and your concerns, are placed second, no matter who is paying the fees. We would always recommend also consulting a solicitor, to protect your interests, as well as hiring a private investigator to gather evidence, and confirm claimed restrictions, including conducting Sunshine Coast Workcover surveillance. The employers concern is reducing cost, the employees concern is either returning to work, or maximising their payout, this is where the conflict lies. Be aware that, where an incident occurs in the workplace, and the claim is accepted, some financial cost attaches to the company. Where a claim is lodged, and all parties agree that the original injury occurred, you should be focused on the level of impairment (if any) as this is the indicator of the amount of compensation to be paid. Where fraud is suspected, assess the exposure, the risk, and act accordingly. The greater the exposure the greater the amount to be spent, when it comes to confirming or denying a claimed restriction.
Workers Compensation claim investigations are often conducted where there are indications of fraud, such as doctor shopping, or failing to participate in back to work activities, or a worker claiming to get worse, not better, and failing to have the expected improvements, or other information comes to hand indicating the claimant is not being truthful about their restriction. Some claims appear fraudulent from the start; some Sunshine Coast Workers Compensation claims may be honest at the start, but the worker becomes addicted to the no work, but be paid, lifestyle. Some claims are truthful. Where you suspect fraud, or dishonesty, you need a private investigator, call us. There is a process to any investigation, and case law to be considered, when deciding on what further actions to take. We are aware of this.
Any Workers Compensation claim investigation, any Workcover investigation, does not start with an assumption that the claim is fraudulent. Some claims are patently legitimate. Some are shonky from the start, and the employer knows it, or reasonably suspects it. Some Workers Compensation claims start out as legitimate, but the worker becomes used to the pay without work lifestyle, and use it as a way to support themselves whilst they establish a business or new career (or just enjoy the beach). Some decide they are 'entitled' to the payout, and simply intend waiting for the 'pot of gold' at the end of the Workcover rainbow. We are not there to attack the legitimate claimant, our investigations and surveillance may support the claim, and provide the employer with the reassurance that the claim, and restrictions, are legitimate. We are there to also provide evidence, where the claim and the displayed restrictions do not mesh.
