Despite more than a little controversy (at least as a reaction to our first story), it seems that business is booming for L&W Investigations. L&W Investigations is a private investigation franchise company whose franchise owners specialize in investigating insurance and worker’s compensation fraud.
Here’s a press release we received today from L&W’s PR firm:
An encore performance…L&W Investigations records best month ever in August
DATELINE: WESTBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS…
In August 2008, L&W Investigations, the foremost private investigations firm specializing in insurance cases and claims, enjoyed its best month ever in terms of cases worked and invoiced–up 36 percent over August of 2007.
Overall in 2008, L&W’s number of cases invoiced is up 39 percent over last year at this time. The record month of August also marks the eighth consecutive month in 2008 where the Westborough, Massachusetts-based investigations company exceeded the previous month’s results.
“Not only are we thrilled to set yet another record, but our backlog is once again up over last month and we expect September to exceed August as well,” said Neal Lyons, chairman and CEO of L&W Investigations. “What makes these record months even more gratifying is that it’s not just one or two strong offices carrying the load. We’re doing well at all our investigations offices throughout the U.S., the Hawaiian Islands and the Caribbean—both with increased workloads from existing clients and new business.”
L&W Investigations works exclusively on workers compensation, disability, liability, auto and property claims. Its client roster consists of insurance companies, third-party administrators, self-insured companies, law firms and municipalities, including many well-known U.S. companies, such as:
- Ameriprise Home and Auto
- Pep Boys Automotive
- Cummins Diesel
- Gallagher Bassett
L&W employs seasoned investigators who specialize in investigating insurance cases (or claims). All L&W investigators go through extensive training and have access to the most state-of-the-art surveillance equipment. L&W’s service offerings include: surveillance; statements; activity/disability checks; asset/background investigations; and medical audits/clinic inspections.
Not your everyday investigations firm
L&W Investigations, Inc. specializes in insurance claims.

That includes online case status reports, video delivery by digital download or CD, DVD or VHS tape, rush services at no extra charge and much more.
L&W Investigations offices are located across the U.S. and the Hawaiian Islands as well as in Canada and Puerto Rico. Offices are still available and the company has set a manageable growth plan at 15 new offices per year.
