After filing a claim with the insurance company, they will go to any extent to protect their profits and roll out a minimum settlement amount. The insurance company will try to gather evidence against you to prove that your injuries and damages are not as severe as you portray. Therefore, the insurance company will send an insurance adjuster to spy on you.
If you believe the insurance adjuster is scrutinizing you, make sure you speak to a Hillsville Personal Injury Lawyer who can help you explore what steps you should take next to protect your claim.
How can an insurance adjuster spy on you?
The insurance company will hire a private investigator to look out for you. While the insurance adjuster cannot do anything illegal, they can still follow you to public places, including:
- Public places.
- Doctor’s place.
While you cannot do anything to keep the insurance adjuster away, you can ensure that your rights are protected. Look out for these signs of violation of your rights:
- The insurance company or adjuster taps your calls.
- They record you in private places such as your home, bathroom, and more.
- They harass or threaten you.
- They hack your online accounts to read your emails or conversations.
- The insurance adjuster enters your house without your consent.
No matter how much you try to resist, the insurance adjuster can take pictures or videos of you where it depicts that you are exaggerating your injuries or your injuries -physical or emotional is not as severe as you claim to be.
What to do if you suspect you are being followed?
While you cannot legally prevent the insurance company from following or investigating you, there are a few measures that you can take to protect yourself.
- Do not talk about your case with anyone except your lawyer.
- Strictly follow your doctor’s restrictions.
- Always be cautious when you are going out.
- Watch out if you find anyone suspicious around you.
- Do not talk about your case online.
- Limit your taggings in pictures online.
- Resist going out on vacations and trips unless your case is settled.

Being investigated secretly can be dangerous. Sometimes, you are unaware that you are being followed and accidentally make mistakes that will harm your case. For example, if you have claimed that you have broken bones and go on a trip with your friends, the insurance adjuster may secretly record you and use it against you to say that your injuries are not severe.
