Civil Investigations

What do you do when the person that hit your car won’t pay for it? What about when you find out someone isn’t taking good care of a relative of yours? When people are negligent or accidentally cause harm, you need to start a civil investigation to get things straight. People file civil lawsuits for a variety of different reasons, and each needs it’s own investigation. A case involving a personal injury investigation from a reckless driver for instance. That can cause physical injuries and cost you thousands of dollars. Or falling off a ladder at work could injure your back, resulting in you needing a workers compensation investigation. Even when it comes to personal matters like child custody investigations, you need to know all the facts. That’s when it pays to have a child custody private investigator on your side.

Personal Injury Investigations

If you get hurt due to someone else’s actions, you may have a case against that person. In that instance, you need to conduct a personal injury investigation to get all the facts about what occurred. That’s where our investigators step in. We bring more than 25 years of experience in personal injury investigations to your team. Our detectives will get records, names and dates relevant to the case, and track down witnesses that may have seen what happened when the accident occurred. When it comes to civil investigations, our clients know that we check every possible lead. With person injury investigations in particular, there can be weeks or months from when the incident occurred to when any progress is made toward a settlement. We make sure that doesn’t become wasted time, and that you know that progress is constantly being made.


  • review rating 5  This is an outstanding company with outstanding investigators! Highly professional and extremely good at what they do. The founder and owner of the company is quite famous and has been in the business for years. What's also great about this company is they have not only ex-military investigators but they also have a retired NSA Army counter-intelligence agent working with them now. I highly recommend this company for any type of Private Investigations especially in San Diego County, Orange County, and Los Angeles County. I have heard their Northern California office is outstanding as well but I have only had first-hand experience with the Southern California office which has been top notch. I went through all of the reviews for the company and I agree with all of them except for the girl that claimed they stole her money. I thought that was an interesting comment as most likely what happened is she paid them a small amount of money to probably get surveillance on something and unfortunately private investigators cannot make miracles happen and it is not like Hollywood movies where they can push a button and get video footage from inside the bedroom from 10000 miles away. So if that person does not do something sketchy or suspicious during the time frame the private investigator is watching him or her, then there's nothing that they can do about it. I don't know if I would call that stealing but I think if you want really good results from utilizing a private investigator you should allow them one full day or more to perform the investigation. That way if anything at all happens they're definitely going to be able to find it. Especially this company. They definitely perform above and beyond from what I've seen working with other PIs.
