Year after year, we take some time to remind our clients that the Holiday Season, spanning from November to about mid-January and beyond, is a crucial time to document claimant activities with IPRs and surveillance before they settle in for the winter and hibernate. If they’re doing it, chances are they’re posting about it, too! We anticipate an early holiday shopping rush this year with current supply chain issues, and keep in mind the level of activity! The possibilities are endless:
Raking leaves/leaf removal
Traveling/preparations for traveling
Shopping, shopping, and MORE SHOPPING!
Family gatherings and parties/excessive alcohol
Sporting events such as football and hockey
Lifting heavy boxes/bags
Decorating for the holidays/hanging lights and other decorations
Chopping down Christmas trees/loading Christmas trees onto vehicles
Putting children on shoulders for holiday parades
Shoveling/salting walkways, driveways, and sidewalks
Operating heavy snow machinery
And so much more!
Let’s also not forget…what goes up must come down! After the New Year, all of those beautiful, festive decorations have to come back down and get packed away until next year! There is no better time to witness and document insurance fraud at its worst.
