How Private Investigators Can Help With WSIB Employee Claims

Private Investigators provide various services related to business and corporate investigative matters. One of the ways in which an investigator can help a business is within the workers safety and compensation space. A private investigator can assist a business with a Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) employee claim in several ways. Here are some ways a private investigator can be beneficial:

  1. Surveillance: A private investigator can conduct surveillance on the claimant to gather evidence about their activities and determine if their reported injuries are consistent with their actions. The investigator may document the claimant’s daily activities, physical capabilities, and any potential fraudulent behavior that could undermine the legitimacy of the claim.
  2. Background checks: Private investigators can perform thorough background checks on the claimant to uncover any previous workers’ compensation claims, criminal tendencies, or evidence of past fraudulent activities. This information can be useful in assessing the claimant’s credibility and identifying any patterns of deceit.
  3. Witness interviews: Private investigators can locate and interview witnesses who may have relevant information regarding the incident leading to the claim. They can gather statements, obtain witness testimony, and document any inconsistencies or contradictions that may exist.
  4. Documentation review: With permission, investigators can review medical records, accident reports, incident statements, and other relevant documents to identify any inconsistencies, discrepancies, or potential evidence of fraudulent activity. This helps in building a strong defense against fraudulent or exaggerated claims.
  5. Covert investigations: In certain cases, where there is a suspicion of malingering or fraudulent behavior, a private investigator can use covert techniques to gather evidence. This may involve undercover operations, covert video or audio recordings, or other investigative methods to expose fraudulent activities.

It’s important to note that the use of a private investigator should be conducted in compliance with applicable laws and regulations governing workplace investigations and privacy rights. Additionally, the involvement of a private investigator should be handled discreetly and professionally to protect the interests of all parties involved.
