A Few Ways Surveillance Can Be Used Against You
- To Show You Are NOT Disabled. Most injured people have good days and bad days. If you’ve ever hurt your back, you know what I mean. Some days you feel practically bedridden. Other days, you feel better. An investigator may conduct days or weeks of surveillance on you. Yet, it will never be seen. Only a few moments will be on video – the few moments when you were at your best. This is all the insurance carrier needs to create doubt at trial. My advice: Be honest from the start about your condition. If you have good and bad days, tell the truth. And, avoid activities that worsen your pain.
