When you are part of a car accident, insurance companies often engage in detailed forms of surveillance. In addition to traditional forms of surveillance, such as video footage captured at the scene of the accident, insurance companies are known to use many other types of surveillance in car accident cases. Some of the more common forms of surveillance that insurance companies and private investigation firms use to keep an eye on a claimant include the following:
- Trailing a claimant in a vehicle
- Recording video footage of a claimant’s day to day activities
- Monitoring social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
Car accident cases in the state of Florida are subject to several levels of surveillance. For example, as the Florida Injury Surveillance System at the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) shows, data of all kinds can illuminate key trends in fatal and non-fatal injuries across the state. The right data assists the Florida Department of Health and similar organizations in their efforts to reduce injuries and prevent further harm to Florida residents. However, when you are part of a car accident, you must be aware that other entities related to the case are likely collecting surveillance on your activities.

How a Lawyer Can Help You With Surveillance After an Accident
Having a lawyer on your side after a car accident will help you in many ways, especially if you are worried about surveillance. However, as the statute of limitations outlined in Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a) shows, those who suffer a personal injury in the state of Florida have a limited time to take legal action. While it may seem daunting or anxiety-inducing to take legal action right after a car accident, doing so may preserve your right to justice. Not taking timely action may leave you with few options for a just outcome after a car accident in the state of Florida.
A lawyer will assist you by fighting to ensure that no surveillance is illegally used out of context. Many times insurance companies and investigators will use any means to portray a claimant in a negative light. A lawyer will fight to prevent this. Additionally, your lawyer will investigate the accident in detail. They will collect evidence to support your position and negotiate with other entities related to your case on your behalf.
