Drones Used to Detect Insurance Fraud
On August 4, 2015, WFLA News Channel 8 showcased private investigator Paul Colbert’s methods of hunting down workers compensation fraud suspects through the use of the most cutting-edge technology of our time, remote robotic cameras and drones.
According to WFLA, Colbert has witnessed first hand how beneficial this technology has proven to be. These built-in “hidden cameras” have the ability to detect motion, follow targets and even zoom in without the touch of a button. Colbert showed live video clip feeds of “disabled” workers throwing footballs, doing yard work, walking around without assistance and even lifting heavy loads after claiming they were far too “disabled” to attempt such things. According to Colbert, these false claims are sheer examples of incidents that these machines are aimed at eradicating. Every year workers compensation fraud costs each of us $1,000 to promote as a deterrent to such fraudulent acts per industry statistics.
Colbert understands that his surveillance approach can seem very unconventional, but believes this breakthrough technology can have the capacity to save companies thousands of dollars on fake or exaggerated workers compensation injury claims.
