A Workcover investigation should basically commence at the time the employer first becomes aware of the incident, or claim. For an injury that occurs at work, the obvious first steps are first aid, and care of the injured worker, followed by notification of the authorities, if required. Where an incident occurs and is not immediately reported to the employer, this raises red flags, as to the veracity of the claim. Where the employee fails to notify for days, this is of concern. If the first the employer is aware of the claim is when documents are served, this is a bigger flag. If a person's claim is not accepted by Workcover, and they choose to launch a private action, this also demands a Workcover investigation, we have licensed, experienced, Bundaberg Workcover investigators, available.
Workcover fraud can be a big problem. There are many forms of fraud. Sometimes it is an injury out of hours and an 'accident' to ensure that the recovery time is paid for by Workers Compensation insurance. At other times the original claim is real, but the worker becomes addicted to the no work but paid lifestyle, and starts dreaming of the big payout. Some just enjoy a paid holiday, and see their fraud as 'harmless'.
Not all Workcover claims are fraudulent. Some are legitimate, some workers are injured, and need time away from work. They are often keen to rehabilitate, and show improvement (sometimes too keen and have to be slowed down), they participate in back to work programs, or retraining, their injuries are identifiable and agreed to by various doctors, their restrictions are logical. Where you have a person who is failing to improve, when expected, or whose injuries are worsening for an unexplained reason, a person who won't participate in back to work activities or has signs of doctor shopping, this is where a suspicion of Workcover fraud is justified. Sometimes information comes to the employer, after a Workcover claim is accepted, that raise doubts. Sometimes they are alerted by other employees to a shonky claim. When you suspect Workcover fraud you need a Bundaberg Workcover investigator, a experienced, licensed, Bundaberg private investigator, contact us.
Whilst the early Workcover investigation is a factual investigation, gathering and preserving evidence for a future court case, later investigations are generally a Workcover surveillance investigation. Bundaberg workcover surveillance, private investigator surveillance, is legal, if done correctly; the evidence obtained can be used for court. Surveillance is designed to not be intrusive, and harm is intended. Workcover surveillance is the discreet observation of an unaware subject, to observe their actions, interactions and capacities, in a real world setting, for comparison to the claimed restrictions. The private investigator generally records video evidence, or still images, to support their observations. This evidence, together with the private investigators surveillance journal, form the basis of evidence for any subsequent contested court action. We have licensed, experienced, Bundaberg Workcover surveillance operatives available.
