Back injuries are often difficult to identify, especially when surveilling someone going about their day to day activities. We recently undertook instructions to watch someone with an alleged bad back, sustained during an accident. The injury was alleged to prevent this subject from living a “normal” life.
On the first day very little was seen of the subject, other than glimpses getting into a vehicle and looking through a shop window. The subject and partner then returned home. It did appear that walking was laboured and there was some evidence of a limp.
The next day the partner disappeared, as did the limp… The subject was seen loading the vehicles and taking it to the tip, shopping and almost running after a trip to the garden centre.
Mind You, who wouldn’t run from “Charlie Dimmock”
