Do Insurance Adjusters Follow You Around?
In the wake of an auto accident or work injury, it is important to understand the role of an insurance adjuster. Insurance adjusters are tasked with assessing the extent of damage and the cost of repairs or medical care. However, many people are unaware that insurance adjusters may also follow you around to investigate your claim.
The answer is yes, the insurance company can and will spy on you after an auto accident and even hire private investigators to film you at home and around town. Over the years, our firm has seen many insurance companies spy on our clients after auto accidents or work injuries.
The insurance company will often use surveillance to determine if you are exaggerating your injuries or if you are engaging in activities that are inconsistent with the severity of your injury. Insurance companies will often hire private investigators to follow you around and document your activities. They may even try to set up a “sting” operation to catch you in the act of engaging in activities that you claim you are unable to do.
It is important to understand that the insurance company is not allowed to violate your privacy or trespass on your property. However, they can observe you in public places such as the grocery store or the park. They can also take pictures of you and your vehicle.
If you are concerned that the insurance company is following you, there are a few steps you can take to protect yourself. First, you should always be aware of your surroundings and take note of any suspicious vehicles or people. Second, you should document any evidence of surveillance and contact an attorney if you feel that your privacy has been violated.
Finally, it is important to be honest and forthcoming with your attorney and the insurance company. If you are exaggerating your injuries or engaging in activities that are inconsistent with the severity of your injury, the insurance company may use this information against you.
At the end of the day, it is important to remember that the insurance company is trying to protect their own interests. They may use surveillance to investigate your claim and make sure that you are not exaggerating your injuries or engaging in activities that are inconsistent with the severity of your injury. It is important to be aware of your surroundings and document any evidence of surveillance. If you feel that your privacy has been violated, contact an attorney immediately.
