An adjuster was assigned a late report specific arm injury claim by a new employee, who was believed to also be self-employed. She referred the claim to Investigation Solutions.
We found social media posts of the claimant’s martial arts. Others showed construction work done just before and after his date of injury. The claimant had just obtained his contractor’s license and had even paid for workers’ compensation insurance.
We sent a field investigator to meet with the claimant to address his injury, his martial arts and the nice photos he posted of his construction work. The claimant decided he did not want to meet. He signed a letter detailing how he refused to cooperate with the investigation and that he did not want to pursue the work injury claim, which was then denied without objection.
