Fraud comprises about 10% of property casualty insurance losses and loss adjustment expenses each year; while Property Casualty fraud costs an estimated 32 Billion dollars per year.A workers’ compensation investigation helps to examine the validity of a workers’ compensation claim. Unfortunately, people exaggerate the extent of their injuries or outright lie when filing a claim. The purpose of our workers’ comp investigations is to monitor injury claims and assess the claimant’s injury status, which can help employers, and insurance companies save a considerable amount of money. We will perform the necessary surveillance and investigative actions in order to uncover the truth. Surveillance on a claimant can prove that they are exaggerating their injuries and can return to work. Our investigators are equipped and skilled to obtain video evidence of claimants in a multitude of situations in a non-intrusive manner that protects the claimant’s legal rights to privacy. After conducting a thorough investigation, we will then provide a complete report, listing our findings and documenting any relevant evidence.

Knowing the true value of these items that may have been previously omitted from statements, will aid in paint an accurate picture of what kind settlement payment the subject has the ability to make. When investigating a business you can also find out how secure their debt is before becoming involved with them. In any case, it is important to know if there are liens, judgements, tax debt and history of criminal and civil cases when conducting an asset investigation. These reports are then compiled into a format that is ready for court. 


CHEATING SPOUSE

If you suspect your partner is cheating on you, CIS can obtained the proof that you will need to make the best possible legal decisions. Rhode Island allows "fault-based" divorces, which means the spouse seeking the divorce must allege and prove that the other spouse's misconduct caused the divorce. Adultery is one of the fault-based legal grounds (reasons) for a divorce. As opposed to states that only have “no-fault” divorces, Rhode Island courts will grant a divorce based on a spouse having an affair.In Rhode Island, adultery can affect both whether a spouse is eligible for alimony as well as what the court gives each spouse in the marital property division. If you’re getting divorced because your spouse had an affair, you should speak with a local family law attorney for advice. Even if you are not married, a private investigator can reveal invaluable information about the affair, such as the number of additional partners being seen and the amount of money being spent. The job of a private investigator specializing in infidelity is to gather information about the subject's activities and interactions. We frequently work on these types of cases for attorneys. An investigation with CIS will answer all these questions and more, helping to empower you in this difficult time. Equally, when we find solid proof that your spouse is faithful; the peace of mind this brings can help ensure that your relationship survives the suspicion.

CHILD CUSTODY INVESTIGATIONS

In case of a divorce or separation a child, custody investigation can help make sure that the children involved stay safe. A parent, guardian or grandparent may need a child custody investigator to determine what the child's experience is like with a custody or non-custody parent. Investigations of parents sometimes reveal chronic neglect, child abuse, child neglect, parental alcoholism or drug abuse. We are well trained and equipped to uncover the truth as well as document the evidence that may save your child’s life while also providing proof that can be put in front of a judge.

MISSING PERSONS / LOCATES

If you are searching for a friend or family member, with whom you have lost contact, CIS can help you find someone whether a crime has been committed or if the police have already attempted to solve the case. There are 119 people listed as missing in Rhode Island, dating back to the 1970s, according to a national database maintained by the FBI. The statistics are contained in the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, which shows there are 65 people younger than age 18 classified as missing in Rhode Island, and 54 adults. Whether the individual is missing, has changed names, is hiding, or has moved does change the fact that we have numerous resources at our disposal, both private and public. We do this in a very professional and discreet manner and all results are confidential. Don't waste your money on online searches that only end up costing you hundreds of dollars and will only return old stale data. Attorneys and law firms often need help locating missing persons. We provide quick and effective results and convey them in a report that meets the needs of the legal industry. Skip tracing services help locate people who have moved quickly without giving any notice. Skip tracing services and a paper trail left behind usually lead to a successful locate. The more information you are able to provide, the better the chances of locating the missing person.

CIVIL / CRIMINAL DEFENSE

The best defense is a good offense. Criminal defense attorneys are often faced with the daunting task of gathering and investigating excessive amounts of information and evidence in order to sift through it all to obtain evidence that is credible and relevant to a case. This is an inefficient method of building a strong case. Our investigators are highly trained and qualified in interview techniques, evidence gathering and review, as well as criminal and civil processes. We will review all documents and discovery, scrutinize every report, analyze all evidence and will uncover any flaws or weaknesses in your adversaries’ case.

BUG DETECTION / TSCM

BEFORE YOU HIRE ANYONE:

  • While cost will likely be a major factor in selecting a company or technician to conduct a professional TSCM bug sweep, having the right equipment, training, and experience is more important. What good is it if you get a low price because they are using a cheap “spy shop” RF (radio frequency) detector that may only be able to detect RF bugging device only if its on? But, what if the device is off or was remotely turned off? That device would be worthless. Fortunately, professionals use tools that will detect bugs that are on or off.
  • Just because a person or agency promotes bug sweeps on their website it doesn’t mean they either have the right equipment, training or experience. Most professional TSCM technicians have more than $150,000 worth of sophisticated electronic bug detection equipment. They also have hundreds of hours of manufacture certified training and years of conducting TSCM bug sweeps on a full time basis. That’s why you need to know what questions to ask to identify true professional TSCM technicians and weed out private investigators with spy shop gear
