There is a tremendous difference between investigating a workplace incident and finding someone to blame for it. Unfortunately, it’s all too common for companies to confuse the two concepts. A more productive accident investigation approach goes far beyond placing blame. At Olivieri Investigations, we focus on identifying flaws in the process leading up to the incident and the safety procedures that were supposed to prevent it from happening.
Our goal is not only to ensure that the accident isn’t repeated; it’s to use what you learn to head off other types of accidents. Another purpose is to prepare for the possibility of litigation, especially in incidents that result in severe injuries or fatalities. At Olivieri Investigations we are committed to launching investigations that yield answers. If you are a victim of an accident, contact us today.
Workman’s Compensation Investigations
Workers compensation fraud occurs when a claimant, employer, or health care provider knowingly lies in order to gain an advantage, savings, money, or other benefit. While many people believe that workers compensation fraud solely consists of employees lying about or exaggerating their injuries, workers’ compensation fraud can involve both employers and employees. If left unchecked, these situations often have a compounding effect, affecting the bottom line of your business. Employers and insurance companies rely on Olivieri Investigations to conduct legal photographic or video surveillance of employees, as well as to interview and take statements from co-workers or company personnel, and to prove workers’ comp fraud and pursue civil or criminal action as appropriate.
A picture is worth a thousand words. In the case of investigative proceedings, this could not be more true. Professionals in the field of forensics will tell you that good photography is one of the most important aspects of solving a case correctly. The experts at Olivieri Investigations have solved many cases via photography. Pictures are exceedingly effective at “connecting the dots”. If you feel as though an ongoing investigation has reached a stalemate, or you can’t even launch one to begin with, then we strongly recommend implementing investigative photography. Our team of professionals will use this method to help solve your case. Contact us today!
