    Insurance Claims and Your Privacy

    September 8, 2014  |  By:  Troy Lehman

    If you have a claim against an insurance company there is a good chance that you will be the subject of surveillance. In personal injury and disability insurance claims it is common for insurance companies to hire private investigators to follow the injured claimant and videotape his or her activities.

    An investigator cannot trespass on private property. However, our law allows an investigator to wait outside a claimant’s house and take pictures and video of the claimant when he or she leaves the house.

    In this increasingly electronic age insurance companies are becoming more sophisticated in the way they gather information about claimants. Insurers commonly monitor Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites to gather information. There is a risk that anything posted on the Internet will find its way into the hands of an insurance adjuster. As a result, personal injury lawyers now warn their clients to be very careful about their Internet activities.
