Aggressive Investigation: Whether you are self-insured or have coverage, aggressive investigation and surveillance of workers’ comp claims will minimize your exposure to fraud. We provide early, effective accident investigations including recorded claimant statements, co-worker statements, witness statements, supervisor statements, scene photography, and background research.
Worker’s Comp AOE-COE investigations, also known as employer-level investigations, center around determining the facts surrounding an alleged injury by a worker on the job. The term AOE-COE refers to determining if a worker’s comp injury is “Arising out of Employment” or is it in the “Course of Employment.”
A thorough and competent employer-level investigation is crucial in the early stages of a claim. Injury related facts must be established immediately because evidence gets lost and memories deteriorate with time. In addition, it is important to obtain the statements of a claimant, witness and/or supervisor as soon as possible before any possible coaching by interested parties. At West Coast Investigations we conduct thorough and comprehensive employer-level investigations in a timely and efficient manner. We know that time is of the essence for you because you need to make important decisions early on in a claim.
