The staff at Aimsiu Incorporated, through many years of experience with respect to all manner of insurance investigations, are well equipped to handle any investigation in the insurance industry. In particular there are specific areas in which Aimsiu Incorporated has unique expertise.
1. Life Insurance & Accidental Death Claims have been a speciality of the staff at Aimsiu since 1993. From a time when an average life insurance policy had a value of less than $50,000 to the current day when multi-million dollar coverage is becoming ever more common, there are few investigators with our level of experience.
Our experience is truly global. From investigating claims made during the two year contestability period, in order to establish the exact cause of death; to travelling to foreign countries to obtain proof that the deceased is really alive. Our investigative results were used to motivate a Canadian Coroner to change a verdict from Undetermined to Suicide. Our investigations have resulted in human remains being exhumed in Europe for further identification. Our investigations have located allegedly deceased persons; alive and well. Our investigations have saved insurance companies millions of dollars.
Aimsiu Incorporated has a network of associates in many provinces of Canada as well as throughout the entire world. We have personally worked with a great many of our associates in their native region and are familiar with the unique challenges they face when conducting an investigation, be it privacy laws in British Columbia or the lack of records in east Africa. Through the use of trusted, known associates, we are able to minimise the costs and ensure the timely delivery of information. We are highly adept at document retrieval, including medical records, across Canada and the rest of the world.
2. Group Benefit Fraud (Health and Dental) effects the people who need the benefits the most while lining the pockets of unscrupulous plan members, practitioners and clinic owners (to mention a few).
Medical fraud in general, has been the subject of many investigations undertaken by the staff at Aimsiu for many years. This has resulted in a well rounded knowledge of many aspects of the medical industry. Our staff have investigated fraudulent practitioners/clinic operations, counterfeit prescriptions, fake doctors, syndicated employee health benefit fraud, opportunistic benefit fraud, pharmaceutical patent infringement, counterfeit pharmaceuticals, and many other health care issues, on four continents.
Our investigations have resulted in numerous arrests and convictions in the field of group benefit fraud as well as motor vehicle related claims fraud. We pride ourselves on finding solutions and recognise that not all group benefit fraud requires protracted investigation, other solutions are available.
3. Property and Casualty investigations. We conduct witness interviews, take statements, liaise with law enforcement, conduct due diligence and background/social media checks to mention a few of many investigative methods used in this area. We can also conduct surveillance if required.
Please call us for further details and your free consultation.
In this day and age, everyone is entitled to work in a safe environment, free from abuse (be it mental, physical or sexual) or harassment of any kind. When an employer is made aware of a complaint it is incumbent on the employer to investigate the complaint. The investigation should be conducted in a fair and unbiased manner. Often this is best achieved by utilising the services of an independent investigator. Call Aimsiu Incorporated for your free consultation.
The staff at Aimsiu Incorporated are well versed in the legislation governing employment practises in Ontario and Canada.
