Due diligence means different things to different people. It is a generic term for confirming a claim, or verifying information, as well as an obligation on public companies when making acquisitions or decisions.
In business due diligence can mean searching for skeletons, when seeking to employ a new senior person. It also means confirming CV claims. When purchasing a business you should do your 'due diligence' to look at any potential legal hazards, or false figures inflating the value of the business. When you are looking at a franchise due diligence includes independently confirming claimed figures and calculations, and inquiries around the history of other franchises. As the owner of franchises it can mean confirming that franchisee's are reporting honestly, and not skimming, or breaching their contract. As a Townsville private investigator we can use surveillance, and factual investigation, to verify claims or research to look for 'skeletons', and false resume entries.
When it comes to Workers Compensation insurance claims, or Workcover claims, there is always potential for fraud. The fraud may be in the initial claim, or relate to the claimed restrictions, or the lack of recovery reported by a worker. Where the claim or exposure is small the employment of a Townsville private investigator may not be cost effective. When the exposure is large, or the matter is dragging on, then an investigation may be prudent. The biggest cost associated with many claims is not the initial time off work, it is where their is extensive time off, and a subsequent civil action to claim damages. There is also cause for concern where a workplace develops a culture of Workcover insurance fraud. When you need to conduct your 'due diligence' Workers compensation insurance investigations, call us, we have experience in this field.
In civil actions due diligence is often about finding out the information not revealed in a claim before the court. Solicitors involved in civil litigation appear more selective in the information they present, and feel less obliged to reveal matters that do not progress their case. This, in turn, creates a need for the defending side to search for the information not revealed. As a private investigation service we are positioned to assist in this.
In criminal matters there is an obligation on the prosecution to reveal all the evidence, however, the police, and the prosecution, often fail to disclose information that is relevant, or fail to investigate fully. This leaves the defence, and the defendant, with the obligation to search for information themselves, for the defence legal team, searching for all evidence is a form of due diligence, because the defendant is entitled to a defence. As private investigators we are employed by either the person charged, or their legal team, taking instructions from the solicitor, or occasionally the barrister, to assist in finding the evidence, or witness, that are not mentioned in the police brief, as the active investigator arm of the criminal defence team. In some cases we have located witnesseses, and obtained contact details, which has enabled a defence solicitor to pull out their mobile phone and call the witness from the court room, when the prosecution alleged they cannot find an exculpatory witness. We have put together timelines to show police claims are impossible, in other cases, or found the real offender, who actually provided a signed statement to say that they committed the offence.
