Jim (not his real name) was a good guy. He and his wife of 6 years, Cindy (not her real name), had just bought a house and they were busy getting their two children settled into the house and new school. Everyone was doing well. The house was becoming home and the family was starting to turn its attention to the yard.
Cindy wanted a mailbox at the street with a flowering vine, so Jim was out at the street’s edge digging out the hard Indiana ground with a spade. In the next moment, their lives changed.
A car came around the corner and hit Jim, knocking him off his feet and landing him on the driveway, where he hit his head on the concrete. Since the accident, Jim cannot work and the medical bills have begun to pile up.
The driver of the car acknowledges he hit Jim. There was no dispute there.
So why were we hired by the attorney?
The driver of the car was an architect. He owned three homes and his own firm. However, the interrogatories show that he had no assets available to pay the judgment awarded to Jim in a civil lawsuit. The attorney believes that the architect has purposely hidden financial assets to prevent having to pay the judgment.
It was our job to find out if the attorney was correct.
We began a financial asset research investigation. Through extensive research, we found what the attorney expected. The architect had taken out several home equity loans against the properties dated after the accident. Searching for hidden bank accounts and stock accounts, we uncovered the cash from the loans. We generated a report and have turned it over to the attorney.
A thorough search for financial assets often requires the skills and knowledge of a professional investigator. That’s why attorneys contact us often. We know how to get the honest results.
