Medical Investigations

Medical investigations, whether civil or criminal, require an investigator who knows how the healthcare systems work. Investigations may include the things that can go wrong in a hospital setting, physician’s office, walk-in health/urgent care clinic, or pharmacy. A medical investigation can also include reviewing fitness for duty evaluations (both physical and psychological) and dissecting worker’s compensation records and medical reports. Having an investigator that has this firsthand experience can be invaluable to your case. Other components of a medical investigation may include:

  • Review complex medical documents: forensic exams(sexual assault cases), fitness for duty evaluation, and Coroners’ reports, personal injury, wrongful death, product liability
  • Child & Elder abuse cases – analysis of medical components & related servicing/delivery of court documents
  • Medical appropriateness (medical necessity)
  • Utilization review of medical insurance billing
  • Medical personnel background checks
  • Locating & securing medical records from medical facilities, work sites, outside evaluators
  • Review reports in DUI cases
  • Personal injury cases: review medical records, law enforcement reports, interviewing clients, and assessing the scene of an accident
  • Workers Compensation cases: reviewing medical records, site injury reports, physical surveillance to identify the possibility of employee OR employer fraud
