Private Investigators Assist Claims Adjusters in Solving Insurance Fraud Investigations
There are tons of ways a claimant can de-fraud the insurance company. Faking an accident, getting false property damage reports, crafting fake medical reports, reporting wrong injuries, are just a few ways a claimant could try to fraud their insurer.
Claim adjusters need to keep their eyes peeled and try to stay clear of such fraudulent cases. However, their expertise does not specifically revolve around closely investigating the claimant to figure out whether they’re trying to de-fraud. And that’s where a private investigator comes into play.
With the help of a private investigator, claim adjusters can massively reduce the amount of work they have to do to detect a fraudulent claim.
Furthermore, private investigators can also help adjusters detect frauds they wouldn’t have been able to detect on their own.
In this article, we dive deeper into how private investigators can help out claim adjusters and make their life easier.
Extract valuable information
While claim adjusters have some experience in extracting useful pieces of info during their interviews with the fraud suspect, they’re not experts in the area.
Detecting discrepancies in a fraudulent story require a very specific set of skills that most claim adjusters don’t possess. A PI can help claim adjusters notice and derive the tiniest of details from the suspect’s story.
Track down witnesses
Private investigators are really good at following up with the story and tracking down witnesses. If there’s someone who knows whether the claim is genuine or fraudulent, the PI will find them out.
Find discrepancies in documents
There are many indications hidden within the paperwork that may reveal a claim to be fraudulent. However, not everyone has the skillset to find those out.
Luckily, PIs have special training needed to extract useful information from the paperwork. They can examine the documents to see if those are falsely forged. Furthermore, they can also detect if there are any hidden details in the docs that may indicate the claim to be a fraud.
Claim adjusters are no experts at following suspects and studying their activities — but private investigators are. PIs are trained to quietly follow the suspects and study their behaviors and activities to look for fraud indications.
Furthermore, PIs can also surveil witnesses to see if they have any personal contact with the claimant.
Gather legal evidence
Last but not least, private investigators can go through all the nitty-gritty details of the case and find legal evidence to present in court. If the claim adjuster thinks the claimant is doing a fraud, they most probably want to collect admissible evidence to present to the court — and private investigators can help with that.
