Martin D. Fragale Investigations, the premier Charlotte private investigator for individuals and businesses in both North and South Carolina, is offering expanded investigative services for businesses with focused workers compensation claim investigations.
Fraudulent workers compensation claims have always existed but are becoming more and more prevalent in terms of common knowledge. Fraudulent workers compensation claims can happen to companies of all sizes and is not limited to private enterprise as civil organizations and public utilities are also prone to these occurrences. Regardless of the industry or the circumstance, fraudulent workers compensation claims are damaging both economically but also in terms of workforce moral. When workers compensation fraud is committed, the business owners pay financially and then they become concerned and suspicious of all claims regardless of their validity.
Martin D. Fragale Investigations have experienced a rise in the number of worker compensation claims that they have been asked to investigate. In all cases the employer relied on the honesty of the employee in question but began hearing and noticing things that led them to believe that fraud was being committed. That these companies chose to use Martin D. Fragale speaks to the respect and esteem that they are held in. The breadth of experience their staff brings to each investigation is what has set them apart from other investigative service providers. Their process combines traditional investigative techniques along with video and photographic surveillance to provide employer with a full dossier of information regarding the claim in question. The body of evidence they gather and document allows employers to determine if legal action is necessary. Additionally, if legal proceedings involve criminal or civil court, their investigators can provide expert witness testimony to support all of the evidence gathered.
With all of the economic issues that are challenging business owners, the last thing that any employer needs is to unknowingly take on the additional financial burden of paying workers compensation claims for fraudulent reasons. The team at Martin D. Fragale advises any employer to engage a professional investigator if they believe they may be victims of workers compensation fraud. This is especially true if legal action is considered not only because having all possible evidence is necessary for a successful court case but also because pursuing legal action when fraud is believed but not proven could lead to more legal troubles and financial expenditures.
