In the summer of 2016, Texas Investigative Network, Inc. was retained by a Beaumont law firm to conduct a covert, mobile surveillance assignment on the Plaintiff in a civil lawsuit. The plaintiff claimed that he had recently sustained a shoulder injury as a result of an accident which occurred in the spring of 2015. This plaintiff also claimed that as a result of this injury, he could no longer work out at his gym.
Over the course of two days in which surveillance was conducted, the plaintiff was observed on various occasions – while working at a gym as a personal trainer – lifting dumbbell weights, utilizing the gym’s bench press, and conducting full body range of motion squats, all while showing no discernible signs of pain, discomfort or disability. All of these activities were captured on covert video and presented to our client in the form of a professionally detailed surveillance report and a court admissible surveillance DVD, supporting each day in which surveillance was conducted on this plaintiff.
Right after the jury had been selected and just before opening arguments for trial, the plaintiff suddenly became willing to settle his lawsuit without further litigation. As advised by the law firm in which we were engaged, the end client received a favorable outcome as a result of our investigation in this matter.
