Featured Success Stories

– A worker’s Compensation Case

Private investigators at Lauth Investigations International were contracted by an adjuster in Indianapolis to ascertain if a claimant was falsifying his work-related injuries for an extended vacation. The individual presented a diagnosis from his local chiropractor indicating he was suffering from chronic lower back and recurring neck pain, yet statements from the individual’s neighbor revealed the veracity of his injuries were disputable. After 12 hours of surveillance activities at the claimant’s residence, the assigned insurance investigator discovered the man was able to tolerate his claimed suffering well enough to clean the household pool, rake fallen leaves, and without struggle, carry 13 heavy leaf bags to the end of the driveway for trash pickup. The adjuster was able to make a quick resolution after investigators provided video and a comprehensive written report to close the worker’s compensation claim.

– A Questionable Death Claims Case

Lauth Investigations International conducted the death investigation of a 17-year-old. According to police, the teen had been murdered by his brother, but that seemed unlikely because the deceased teen’s brother was confined to a wheelchair at the time of the teen’s death. Lauth investigators, who specialize in death investigations, were able to obtain evidence showing that the 17-year-old committed suicide. The cause of death was determined and based upon a vital witness statement taken from the nephew of the victim, whom the police had never interviewed.

For our internal issue, our team had previously used another company, but they were unsuccessful in getting any information back. Goals and tasks were outlined at the outset of the strategy meeting between the Lauth team and our team. All of our requests were promptly fulfilled by them.

The entire process was very well communicated by Stacie. My parents, who are elderly, required me to repeat it. Thanks to Stacie's persistence and in-depth explanations, the procedure was incredibly straightforward. Stacie gave simple-to-follow instructions. Stacie served as a fantastic point of contact.

Chrissy started off with a thorough explanation. My family and I applaud your efforts, as well as those of your company. We would not have known it was well worth the fee you charge if it had not been for your company. Chrissy Edwards was incredible! Thank you!

I had a great conversation with Diane because she was so friendly. She always picks up when I call her. She would explain something to me until I understood it if I didn't. With her, everything was so easy. Diane was very comforting and made me feel very secure when I gave her my information, which is difficult for me to do. I'm very grateful to her for all of her assistance and for giving me confidence that she would act in my best interests

Cherie B. was always on time, and she was better than my Alexa at home. Thank you so much. She is amazing; I don't know how she does it, but she provides the best customer service/care I've ever experienced. I liked how she made everything very clear and went above and beyond to make me feel safe. I'm thrilled and grateful that she did everything; I have no complaints at all.
Christopher S.
Christopher S.
No matter the day or hour, Cherie always made time for me, was approachable, and promptly returned my calls. I admire her for doing that. Her response times to calls and emails were always very quick. Yes, she took the time to walk me through the procedure and then texted me later with written details for me to review. Each step of the process was explained to me by her. She was also very clear about the documents she required and where I could find them. I really valued Cherie's updates throughout the process because she is a great communicator. I cannot think of anything you could have done more effectively. I had a wonderful time there

Joel Woods from Lauth investigation contacted me and said that they had found a relative that I didn't even know had passed away and died without leaving a will.We conversed for a while and came to an agreement for Lauth to follow through and get me involved in the estate.Fast forward about a year and I recently received a nice check for my portion of the estate.I had others who contacted me after I initially spoke with Joel but I decided to go with Lauth because he was thorough and competent. He also seemed to be a really nice person.I would highly recommend Joel Woods and Lauth Investigations International for any and all of you investigative needs.

Thomas Lauth and his team are, quite simply, incredible. Smart, creative, compassionate, efficient, and always there. When my friend’s daughter went missing, we engaged Lauth to find her, and they did. The nightmare Lauth helped shepherd us through didn’t end there, however. The next phase involved getting the endangered young woman to safety. I still marvel at the quick-thinking, creative solutions Lauth and his team of caring experts came up with in the seconds, minutes, hours and days that followed. Lauth also acted quickly to provide a deep list of contacts (mental health, social workers, lawyers, advocates, organizations in Indianapolis where we were) to help us secure the young woman’s complex needs. For our unexpected, volatile, chaotic and heartbreaking situation, it was so very good to have Thomas Lauth’s steady expertise to count on. Can’t ever thank him and his lead investigator enough. Good luck to you in your quest.

Lauth Investigations determined that I had a contact that was not who they said they were and as a result I was able to confront this individual with objective truths exposing their lies and deceit .

Lauth Investigations International went beyond my initial instructions. Nothing was too much trouble. They kept me updated all the way along. A huge thank you to them. The claim researcher who helped us was K. McGinley. I want to recommend her for being kind, soft-spoken, efficient, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful in assisting me and my family with this process. We were elated to find out there were assets available for us to claim. We want to say thank you a million times for your company’s service. I speak a one hundredfold blessing on Ms. McGinley and your company, and all those involved in making this blessing from the Lord possible, in Jesus name.

I was completely surprised when I received a letter from Lauth Investigations Informing me that my deceased sister and I may be heirs to lost assets and unclaimed property. We would have never known about it. I do appreciate Rain Lauth and the others for making this possible

I anticipate my first thoughts were like many others when I received the initial contact from Lauth Investigations International, this is a scam. Well, nothing could have been further from the truth. After one interaction with the agent assigned to my case I was confident of the legitimacy of the company, their professionalism and honesty.While working with Lauth, I experienced many personal challenges, the death of my sister and my brothers diagnosis of advanced dementia. During all of this I as never pressured to conform to a deadline. My agent worked with me on my timeline, was kind, patient and supportive of me.My home state has many difficult hurdles to cross in providing documentation and unfortunately are not as automated and helpful as some. My agent was with me every step of the way providing exceptional advice and encouragement.I could not have been more pleased with my agent and overall experience with this company. I highly recommend them!

Workers’ Compensation Fraud is the most unethical thing an employee can do because it takes away from those who are actually in need. I, unfortunately, had to deal with not one, not two, but three of my workers whom I suspected but had no proof. Enter the professionals of Lauth Investigations. They conducted a very informative investigation into the employees in question. Turns out, two of them were committing the fraud while the third one was legitimate.
Grant B.

There were numerous suspicions regarding one of one employee's being involved in illegal and quite frankly, immoral activities towards one of my clients but when I went to my HR Director and she said they said they required proof of such incursions. This is when I sought the services of Lauth Investigations. They took the case and produced the necessary evidence and we were able to justifiably terminate this employee. We are very pleased with their work and will call on them again if needed.

My firm was in need of a company that would be able to investigate a case of what I knew to be workers’ compensation fraud. I did my due diligence and the services offered by Lauth Investigations were exactly what we needed. They conducted a comprehensive investigation on the person in question and provided solid, concrete evidence of her fraudulent activities that we were able to use. Thanks for the help!
Joseph W.

Lauth Investigations is certainly an expert in their field. They helped our company with a corporate audit and detailed where some money was being wasted. They also found that one of employees who filed for workers compensation filed fraudulently. We were able to nip that in the bud as well with their help. Great job, Lauth!
Charles F.

We hired Lauth Investigations to perform a corporate audit because we seem to have people working unapproved overtime and our profit margin was not as high as last year this time. They worked with our corporate offices and staff to resolve this problem. We even had an anonymous person come in and ‘worked’ for us to see first hand what was happening. It turned out, several employees had been falsifying their time records and doing minimal work. These were people that we knew and respected and we were very disappointed when we found out about the theft. Their investigation was very enlightening and as a result, we made a number of changes. This problem has been eliminated and we are confident moving forward. Our numbers are back on track thanks to Lauth.

Our company had some missing funds and we could not pinpoint the party responsible or the funds. Lauth Investigations did a thorough corporate audit and detailed research into the matter. After looking into our employee’s work, Lauth found that money was being moved to an account we had no record of. Thanks to them, we were able to take all of their investigative results and halt this issue, terminate the individual, and have our documents in order for court. They did an outstanding job and I definitely recommend their service.

Lauth Investigation has been a profound asset to my office. As an attorney specializing in custody cases, they have been able to obtain needed evidence to secure the future of many children through our office.

Lauth investigation has saved my company a lot of money and ensured my reliable employees have gotten exactly what they should have. They were hired the first time by us for an employee who we honestly thought was trying to violate their works comp expectations. Lauth confirmed not only was he doing that, but that he was nearly healed. It has been routine to have them sporadically check on employees since then. Thankfully we don't get many comp cases, but it's nice to know someone will defend those who need it.

Lauth Investigations is one company I would trust enough to recommend to a friend or family member. I did my research and called around before selecting a company to handle my child custody investigation. They were very thorough, professional, and honestly cared about getting the outcome I was and am looking for.

Lauth Investigations International provides background checks for my firm’s human resources department. I have also retained their services personally to investigate my ex and the information they obtained was useful in obtaining sole custody of my children. I highly recommend their services.

The investigators at Lauth have extensive law enforcement experience which gives them the knowledge and tools to get the job done in a timely, thorough, professional manner. There were suspicious activities happening at one of our storage centers and sure enough they got the evidence for us to not only terminate several employees but to report them to the authorities for their human trafficking ring.

Lauth Investigations International offers a great service for a fair price. I was pleasantly surprised to receive much more than what I was expecting. They managed to obtain so much information for me that I was able to use in my terminal of spousal support case. The detailed information within the documents that were provided proved that they are highly knowledgeable of laws.

I needed a trusted investigation of an incredibly confidential and most sensitive employee issue. I sought out the services of Lauth Investigations and they handled it professionally, which allowed me to not get personally involved in the aspects of the issue. This allowed me to take a clear and impartial approach to resolving the alleged issue with confidence rather than relying on hearsay.

Our Law Office has worked with Tom Lauth and his team of investigators for well over 25 years. From locating clients, to interviewing witnesses, performing background checks, etc, his firm is top notch!Aside from the legal work, I referred Tom to a friend in a non-custodial parent abduction case. Tom successfully located the father and missing child, living secretly in another country!In another referral case of a similar nature, Tom successfully located the fleeing father after he left the State with the child. Tom talked to the father personally, via cell phone, and managed to successfully talk this guy into turning his car around and returning the abducted child back to his custodial mother!I have only great things to say about Tom and I highly recommend Lauth Investigations 110%!

I did quite a bit of research into finding a top notch investigation firm and Lauth stood out above the rest and after our talk and meeting with them, it only confirmed what others have said. They have years of experience and extremely skilled at what they do. They took the time to find out exactly what I was needed, listened intently, ask follow up questions to help even get more info and then they went and did their work.If you're looking for a private investigator or background checks who deliver results, you've found your firm with Tom and his team.

Wow! We used this firm to help locate a missing semi. We had no idea where the truck may be, and very little information surrounding the man that was supposedly in the truck. Within four days these guys had him narrowed down to one small town in Georgia. They did a wonderful job and are also very well at interacting with their customers on a personal level. I would highly recommend and if we need similar services in the future, there is no doubt that Lauth Investigations will be the ones that we call!

Lauth Investigations has handled all of our background investigations and internal investigations for over ten years. Before using Lauth, we had repeatedly experienced troubles with new hires until we engaged this firm to help us root out applicants with a pattern of issues in the past or who have lied on their resumes regarding their qualifications. Our firm enters other businesses for service and the last thing we want to do is to send them an unsavory character. Our employee retention rates increased 50% after using Lauth because we were hiring the RIGHT people.I would highly recommend Lauth Investigations. Their pricing is very reasonable and they are pleasant to work with. When I need something, they always hop to and get it done.
