Case Study – No Lifting Over Five Pounds

Case Study – No Lifting Over Five Pounds

This claimant alleged a work related injury to both of her shoulders and lower back. She was taken off work by the doctor as her physical work restrictions precluded her from doing her regular work duties.
The insurance adjuster ordered surveillance as the claimant was missing medical and physical therapy appointments. We conducted several days of surveillance and found the claimant running a day care business out of her home. We obtained several hours of video of her carrying young children in her arms and running errands with them. Her treating physician was shown the video we obtained and she was immediately released back to work with no restrictions.
