One of the cornerstones of Cole Investigative Agency is our long standing tradition of providing investigative excellence to insurance carriers and claims agencies. Our investigative services, which include casualty surveillance, background checks and activities checks, have helped thousands of adjusters and defense attorneys from coast to coast to gather the information they need to make educated, responsible claims decisions.
We realize that too many insurance investigative agencies make far too many irresponsible promises about they can do which almost always leave you looking bad to your supervisors, claims team and the claimant. We understand that you have many choices when selecting an investigator and that most insurance investigators sound the same when pitching their services to you.
What we will promise you, which the giant national P.I. agencies cannot, is that we will not embarrass you or your company. We do not accept assignments that we cannot actually do and do well. We do not use investigators who are untrained, inexperienced and make for poor witnesses on the stand. In short, everything we do, we do with your best interests in mind. We follow an ethics policy and treat the subject of the investigation like a real person and respect their rights and dignity.
Many insurance investigative agencies can’t deliver the same level of service or product that we can because they try and be everything to everyone and everywhere, at the lowest price possible. In our business, labor costs are the main expense that a P.I. will incur. By keeping that cost as low as possible, they try and maximize their profit. (For those of you who may doubt that these national agencies pay only slightly better than the minimum wage, call and ask to apply for a job at one and ask the starting salary)
Keeping labor cost low sounds like a sound business decision particularly when they rationalize this by relying on case management software, an initial training class and even some experienced supervisors to try and make up for a lack of experience or skill in the field.
