I am very happy to report that the department granted our request for a willful misrepresentation order for the time period 4/12/16 – 6/7/17 resulting in a total repayment order of $118,154.61.

This was a case where we all worked hard and got the best video possible to support our contentions.  I want to thank you and your private investigators for the great work and diligence!

Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air

During a recent meeting, the doctor commented that the professional presentation and clarity of the video was instrumental in his ability to positively identify the claimant and observe/assess the movements of the injured body part. The doctor said that most surveillance video he’s watched in the past was so shaky, grainy, and of overall poor quality that it was of almost no value from his perspective.

Hey Dan,

I just wanted to thank you for getting that surveillance set up in Spokane. Based on the on updates from our attorney, your guys did great work and got some more great footage!

I greatly appreciate that you mentioned her gait. So many investigators only mention the locations claimant went to without bothering to mention what they observed re physical activities / abilities, and of course it’s the physical abilities that we are interested in.

Thank you,

Claims Specialist
