Disability Surveillance Investigation Uncovers Plaintiff Still Working Out E-Newsletter Article
In the summer of 2018, a law firm client retained Texas Investigative Network, Inc. to conduct a disability surveillance investigation on a Plaintiff in a civil lawsuit. Our client requested TIN conduct covert, mobile surveillance due to the Plaintiff alleging physical pain and disability from a back injury sustained as a result of an auto accident the previous year. The Plaintiff further alleged that she was unable to exercise, even though she admitted to having an active gym membership.
After several days of surveillance on the Plaintiff, with little activity, a TIN Investigator followed her to a downtown gym. Utilizing a strategic pretext, the Investigator was able to gain access to the gym and observe the Plaintiff on an elliptical machine for over twenty minutes. During this time, the Plaintiff showed no discernible signs of pain or discomfort and did not appear limited or restricted in her movements. Our Investigator captured the Plaintiff’s workout routine on high definition covert video, evidencing a clear contradiction between her alleged injuries and her true physical capabilities.
Disability Surveillance Investigation Results
As advised by the law firm, their client received a favorable outcome as a result of TIN’s investigation in this matter. All TIN Investigators are equipped with covert, surveillance cameras and are often required to enter crowded, public places in order to obtain the results desired by our clients.
