Can my insurance company videotape me? by Patricia Santucci

Yes. Most insurance companies will hire private investigators to follow you and take photographs and video footage. They may even interview your neighbours and former co-workers. However, they must not disobey the law with respect to trespass or privacy invasion. If you suspect that an investigator has broken the law, or if you fear for your safety because you are being followed, you should contact the police. You have nothing to fear from surveillance itself, as long as you are being truthful with respect to the information that you are providing to your insurance company regarding your disability and limitations. Call Santucci Personal Injury Law for a free consultation. (47)
