    Default When Does Workmans Comp Spy on You

    I broke my neck at work and had surgery in 2001 since then I have seen 12 doctors. 2 attorneys and my case is still not settled. I have been permnament and stationary since 2004 recieving no benifits. I hate my attorney!!!! But I am close to settling and don't want to blow it. I have heard horror stories about the spying and intrapment tactics they try to use when you get close to settling. Should I fire my attorney this far and so close to the end or wait it out. I don't do anything I shouldn't be doing. But I am parinoid I feel like a victim that they treat like a criminal.

    Thanks kiki

    well, all i can tell you is that from previous experience, that i was spied on in 2000, but i saw them first. they will be there when you least expect it trying to make you out to be a fraud.

    Default Worker's Comp Surveillance

    Surveillance is expensive, so it is usually conducted only in cases of suspected fraud, or where the potential payout is sufficiently high that the insurance company hopes to find evidence that the injury is less severe than claimed.

    What i find disturbing about this practice ( Not in all cases ) Is that a person with a sever injury is going to have a few "goods days" and these spys will make them look like nothing is wrong with them !! They dont film the results of what you are like after you do what you say you cant !! I am not against them but there are some legit people out there that they are harassing and making them look bad. just my 2 cents.
