Our client was sued by an employee claiming to have injured his back while on company property during working hours. The suit was requesting $900,000.00 in pain and suffering. Torres Protection Group was able to locate an individual with whom the plaintiff employee had a relationship. This person advised our investigator that the plaintiff employee had, in fact, injured his back years earlier and had stated on several occasions that he wanted to “stage an accident” at his place of employment and sue his employer.
This statement and the investigation surrounding it resulted in the employee dropping his law suit entirely, saving the company over a million dollars when factoring in defense costs and lost productivity that would have resulted from a trial.
