Case Study 6: Insurance Claim Litigation

A western state law firm retained J&R to determine the work status of an area resident injured in a motor vehicle accident in their state. The injured party claimed he was unable to work in his field as a result of the accident. The client believed the injured party was employed in the home construction industry. The client needed confirmation of this employment within 72 hours to present at a hearing.

J&R investigators conducted surveillance on the individual, but found no indication he was working in the home construction industry in the suspected area. A comprehensive background investigation revealed an address history with New York City connections. Through in-depth investigation, J&R investigators obtained information indicating the injured party was working in the entertainment industry with current show credits. The Client was able to present the information at the hearing, which resulted in a favorable decision.
