Background Investigations

Effective and admissible research to establish background information on character witnesses and questionable claimants

Detailed, timely, and cost-effective

Leverage RJN’s extensive investigative expertise in subject backgrounds


An expertly conducted RJN background investigation can provide our clients with unique information for the overall defense of a questionable claim or to help establish the character of a claimant, employee, witness, or plaintiff. It can also prove to be invaluable to subsequent subrosa, AOE-COE, or SIU investigations.

RJN background investigations can be conducted prior to or after a deposition to determine validity. They are instrumental in the determination of apportionment by identifying and locating prior injuries, past and present criminal records, domestic violence and restraining orders, traffic accidents, personal injury suits, associations with outside businesses, and medical treatment records.
