PERSONAL INJURY and AUTO ACCIDENT CASES

A thorough personal injury investigation almost always makes the difference winning or losing your case. Our legal investigators are trained professionals who search out the facts that lead to the truth. They are trained in techniques of fact-finding, accident reconstruction, and forensic procedure to assist the attorney in achieving a desired result for a client. A private investigator serves an important role in personal injury investigations. In personal injury cases, the investigator immediately takes steps to maintain evidence, documents the accident scene, locates valuable witnesses, interview all parties involved in the accident, including first responders, and launches a professional investigation into the facts surrounding the accident. Our goal is to impartially find the facts that point toward the truth.

 

It is important that you have experienced investigators working on your side. Legal investigations require specific knowledge, experience and skill in order to properly prepare a strategy. Our investigators have first-hand experience investigating accidents, interviewing witnesses, working closely with attorneys, and testifying in court. Our investigators have over 100 years of combined criminal and civil investigative experience. They have been involved in some of our country's most high profile cases. 

A properly conducted accident investigation will provide important, detailed information about the accident scene and all vehicles involved in the accident. Our investigators will obtain agency reports and any news stories which are generated as a result of the accident. We will determine what witnesses to the accident may recall and identify whether or not the parties in the matter have been involved in an inordinate amount of civil and/or criminal cases.

Global Investigative Group is dedicated to providing accident and personal injury claims support. We work directly for a policy holder, a claimant, or a claimant’s personal injury attorney. 

 

The at fault driver received a traffic citation, so why is the at fault insurer accepting only 50% liability?

Florida is structured as a comparative fault state. What this means is that percentages of liability can be argued and negotiated between insurance companies. When this occurs, insurance adjusters end up acting like investigators, judges and juries, and that can be a recipe for disaster for a policy holder. Let a qualified accident investigator help you determine liability.

Case Example:

Jane crashes her vehicle into the rear of Mike’s car. Police respond and find Jane at fault for following too closely or careless driving. Jane is issued a citation. Jane’s insurance company automatically assigns 100% liability on her. Jane then calls her insurance company and informs them that the reason she crashed into the car in front of her was because the car in front had defective brake lights. Investigators working for Jane confirm that the taillights on Mike's car were not working. Jane’s insurance company calls Mike’s insurance company and they agree to accept 50% liability, instead of none.
