Surveillance plays a significant role in a claims investigation. More importantly, surveillance can be one of the most effective ways to defend against claims fraud. Tri-Star's investigators are exceptionally trained in mobile surveillance, static surveillance, as well as covert surveillance. All investigators are armed with the latest video surveillance technology (hidden cameras, body worn cameras, etc…)

Tri-Star also understands that it's vital to remain an unbiased observer in an effort to collect court room admissible evidence. Tri-Star's field surveillance investigators are trained in court room testimony and are available to testify when needed.

Tri-Star conducts surveillance related to:

  • Workers' Compensation Claims
  • General Liability Claims
  • Bodily Injury Claims
  • Disability Claims
  • Litigated Claims/Legal Support

Skip Trace

“Skiptracing (also skip tracing) is a colloquial term used to describe the process of locating a person's whereabouts for any number of purposes. A skip tracer is someone who performs this task, which may be the person's primary occupation. The term comes from the word "skip" being used to describe the person being searched for, and comes from the idiomatic expression "to skip town," meaning to depart, perhaps in a rush, and leaving minimal clues behind for someone to "trace" the "skip" to a new location.” (Wikipedia)

The days when you went to the phone book, criss-cross directory, or reverse directory are old-school and costly compared to the skip tracing technology options today. In fact, just looking for an address or a phone number isn’t the only thing collectors can ask of technology.

With the advent of technology in general, the availability and quality of information has expanded dramatically. Price can certainly be an issue, but many times the price is very inexpensive when measured to the benefit gained by it.
