Premises Liability Defense
Surveillance is a tool that requires both patience and the right technique. Surveillance is primarily thought of in Worker’s Compensation and matrimonial cases. However, surveillance may be useful in a variety of case types, including establishing that a plaintiff was not injured to the extent as alleged in the complaint. Surveillance may also be useful in identifying potential witnesses that would otherwise not be identified.
LAW Investigative Group has over 50 years of combined experience conducting background investigations of plaintiffs in product liability litigation. Our investigations can be tailored to our client’s needs; however, these investigations typically include:
Researching Automobile Liability cases requires background investigations of the parties involved and a “hands-on” examination of the vehicles and the accident scene. Our investigators have experience investigating cases involving alleged tire failure, seatbelt malfunction and roll-over. Our investigation includes scene inspection, vehicle inspection and witness interviews to gather the information necessary to aid defense counsel in serving their clients.
Pharmaceutical and Environmental product liability cases require additional investigation into possible alternative causation for the alleged injury/illness. As our investigators perform the background investigation on the plaintiff, they also identify possible alternative causation for the alleged illness, such as genetic predisposition. Our investigators are experts in genealogy research that aids in the development of this defense strategy. In addition, our investigators identify possible occupational hazards and environmental hazards to be used to mitigate the client’s liability.
All-Terrain Vehicles and Utility Terrain Vehicles are useful off-road vehicles when operated properly.

We can also include a thorough examination of the accident scene, subject vehicle(s) inspection and acquisition, as well as witness location and interviewing.
