What is video surveillance in a personal injury case? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

It is not uncommon for an insurance company to utilize the services of investigators to follow and watch a victim while they go through their day to day activities. The investigator will usually video record or take photos of any activity they think could be used to prove the victim is not really injured as they claim they are. This evidence can all be presented during litigation as evidence against the victim. However, the victim’s attorney can also use the recordings to prove the victim is injured and can request all videos and photos during the discovery phase of litigation.
