Saffron Investigations is your premier South Florida based private investigations agency dedicated to providing accident and personal injury claims support. We do not work for insurance companies, we work directly for a policy holder, a claimant or a claimants personal injury attorney. Let the truth be told, many personal injury attorneys have for way too long routinely accepted lower liability percentages from opposing insurance adjusters without thoroughly investigating the validity of the reduction. Many personal injury attorneys refuse to spend money on certified accident investigators who are trained to challenge the opposing adjuster’s claims. No more folks, it’s time to make the attorneys work harder for you, you should expect and demand more from your personal injury attorney. Saffron investigations utilizes former law enforcement and military investigators from within the south Florida area who have received training & certifications in the accident investigations field. If you are currently being represented by a personal injury attorney, and he or she is not utilizing the services of Saffron investigations or an equivalent licensed investigative agency that is certified and specializes in accident investigations, you are not being fully represented. If the information on your crash report is incorrect or your claim is being unfairly denied, give us a call.
The other driver received a ticket, why is the at fault adjuster accepting only 50% liability?
Florida is structured as a comparative fault state. What this means is that percentages of liability can be argued & negotiated between insurance company adjuster’s. When this occurs, insurance adjusters end up acting like investigators, judges and juries, and that can be a recipe for disaster for a policy holder.
Adjusters should adjust, Investigators should investigate, litigators should litigate.
Comparative Fault Example Case : John crashes into the rear bumper of Jane’s car. The police officer responds and finds John at fault, issues John a ticket. Seems pretty cut and dry right WRONG!, hold everything. John calls his insurance company and notifies his adjuster that the reason he crashed into Jane’s car was because Jane’s car had defective brake lights. John’s insurance adjuster calls Jane’s adjuster and accepts only 50% liability, instead of 100% liability. The wheeling & dealing is initiated, meanwhile, Jane is injured and seeks legal representation from a personal injury attorney. Jane signs an authority to represent contract with her attorney, Jane’s attorney charges Jane the standard contingent rate of 33 1/3 % including other fees which at the end may be as high as 40% of any settlement received from the insurance company. Jane receives some physical therapy, Jane’s attorney doesn’t utilize a certified accident investigator to refute John’s claim, Jane’s attorney ends up accepting the 50% offer from the opposing insurance company. Meanwhile, Jane not only loses 50% of her initial claim, but it costs her upwards of 40% of her settlement for this inadequate representation from her attorney. This happens more often than not folks, many attorneys cut corners, keep their clients in the dark, take the easy route, make their money on the volume of cases, not on the potential value of each case.

Vehicle Accident Investigators, Why They Are Needed:
* Police Officers Make Mistakes*
As a retired law enforcement officer, I know first hand the challenges police officers face when responding to a motor vehicle accident. The officer is expected to race to the scene, provide immediate traffic control, render first aid, assess injuries, coordinate with fire rescue and other emergency services units, collect the required documentation from all the participants for the crash report, and of course, assign fault if possible all while under limited time constraints. I can tell you first hand, this can be a daunting and overwhelming experience. I don’t know how many times throughout my patrol duties I was asked to clear from an accident scene that I was investigating to handle an in progress violent crime in progress call. The point is, police officers are professionals that do the best they can under the circumstances they find themselves operating in. Because of the many tasks expected of the police officer, the potential for errors or omissions in the crash report exist. In our current system, the police officers crash report is recognized by insurance company adjusters as being the final word, unless of course you can provide solid contradicting evidence to prove otherwise. How is this achieved, by hiring a certified Saffron Investigations accident investigator to review the police officers crash report for any apparent errors or omissions.
What Is A Certified Accident Investigators Job?
A certified accident investigators job is to collect, analyst, preserve and present the evidence of your case in an investigators report of findings. Make no mistake, you get one chance, once the evidence is tainted or lost, it is generally lost forever. Selecting the right certified accident investigator with the experience, training and credentials required to put your case together will be the difference between success and failure or a large settlement and a nuisance settlement.
Don’t be fooled, erase those well known personal injury “Jingles” from your head, the most important decision you will make after an accident will be the investigator you hire, not the attorney that will coordinate with the insurance adjusters. The majority of those “Jingle” referral attorneys don’t even use licensed investigators, they cut costs by using unlicensed, untrained in house investigators. i don’t know about you, but I don’t feel comfortable providing all my personal information to just anyone, I would prefer entrusting my personal information with someone with a proven track record, someone licensed and regulated by the state. At Saffron Investigations, all our investigators are not only licensed and regulated by the state, but they receive specialized accident investigations certification training.
What Is A Passenger Vehicle EDR Or Black Box?
Most late model passenger vehicles on our roads today are equipped with an event data recorder (EDR), also referred to as the vehicles “ Black Box ”. Most EDR’s possess at least 5 seconds of important pre-crash data describing the vehicles speed, throttle usage, brake usage, seat belt usage and delta v (injury projections). This data is crucial when used as supportive investigative material to either exonerate or prosecute a driver. At Saffron Investigations, are investigators are experienced certified EDR technicians trained in extracting, analyzing and presenting the findings in an organized investigative report. Don’t take any chances, get the results you need to.
Tractor Trailers/heavy Trucks Have EDR or Black Boxes
Commercial vehicles or heavy trucks may have two types of downloadable data useful for your case. the two types of data are categorized as critical event data and trip event data. Critical event data is generally associated with “hard braking” incidents which include engine speed, throttle percentage, vehicle speed, cruise control, and fault codes. This information may be available for up to 2 minutes prior to the event, and up to 15 seconds after the event. Trip event data is cumulative data collected over a period of time since the last system reset. Trip event data may include the number of times the vehicle engaged in hard braking,high speed, cruise control usage, % of drive time, % drive time over speed and engine settings like maximum governed vehicle speed.
Aftermarket GPS Systems Installed In Vehicles
Aside from factory installed EDR accessible data, aftermarket GPS navigation units in cars and commercial vehicles may afford you valuable coordinate and speed information. This information is obtained by accessing the vehicles memory card and interpreting the data. Our Saffron Investigations techs and engineers are trained in locating, accessing and preserving this most important evidence for your case.
