Sub Rosa, or Subrosa, is a Latin phrase literally meaning "under the rose". Sub Rosa surveillance investigations take place in secrecy, operating under the radar of the public. During a Sub Rosa investigation, subjects are tailed for surveillance, while being photographed, recorded, or videotaped in a convert manner, using a variety of surveillance technologies. Sub Rosa investigations are most commonly used in insurance and worker's compensation claims to determine the validity and severity of claims submitted. Clients in need of a Sub Rosa Surveillance Investigation may be experiencing any of several different situations, such as:
- Businesses who have recently received a worker's compensation claim from an employee
- Insurance companies being forced to pay out on suspicious injury or compensation claims
- Anyone who needs a covert surveillance to discover the truth
It is crucial to begin a Sub Rosa Insurance Surveillance case as early as possible after a worker's compensation claim is filed to ensure that all possible evidence is collected. As time passes evidence can be lost or altered, witness's memories fade, or the claimant can receive training from a worker's compensation lawyer, which can severely alter the statements given. ICS uses a variety of surveillance techniques to find what really happened when the injury was sustained.
Employing a Sub Rosa Surveillance Investigation can save companies millions of dollars by eliminating fraudulent claims. These savings then allow businesses to be more competitive, financially stable, and resilient. No one doubts that legitimate work accidents do occur, but when you receive a worker's compensation claim it is always wise to conduct an investigation to validate the claim, especially when the claim is suspicious or unlikely.
During a Sub Rosa Investigation, private investigators from ICS will conduct a thorough background check to look for a history of worker's compensation claims, accusations of fraud, criminal history, and known aliases. From there, investigators will begin the actual Sub Rosa surveillance, which may include covert surveillance of the subject while at home and in their free time. Often during fraudulent insurance claims, the claimant will not bother to keep up the act on their days off, and investigators can shoot photographs and video of the claimant, providing invaluable information about the severity of the injury. Subjects can also be recorded on hidden microphones, where they are often overheard talking about their injury or their plans to unlawfully obtain worker's compensation or insurance benefits.
