Status Investigations

Status Investigative Group

About Us
Status Investigative Group, based in Modesto, CA, has specialized in workers’ compensation investigations since 1996. Founded from a need expressed by our clients to have an investigative service that takes red flags reported by employers seriously, Status investigators help stop hundreds of claims in their tracks each year. Status has taken film of “permanently disabled” claimants working multiple jobs, breakdancing in the park, and winning soccer and rock-climbing championships, but we’ve had just as dramatic an impact on claims programs when claims are quietly withdrawn after an investigator arrives to take a statement or interview witnesses. A majority of claims do not involve fraud, but for those that do, having an experienced and visible investigative presence can mean the difference between an open claim and a closed one.
Status Investigative Group is staffed by experienced investigators with law enforcement and/or military experience. They excel in AOE/COE investigations, surveillance, witness statements, fraud, theft & threat assessment, wrongful termination and other employment-based investigations.
