Ohio’s private investigation law at times may cover the crash reconstruction process. Some courts in Ohio have ruled that investigators involved in a crash reconstruction must be licensed for certain aspects of the work. In order to comply with the law and to qualify us to conduct specific investigatory efforts, Introtech is a fully licensed private investigation company under the Ohio Revised Code 4749.01 which includes businesses that perform:
“Business of private investigation” means, except when performed by one excluded under division (H) of this section, the conducting, for hire, in person or through a partner or employees, of any investigation relevant to any crime or wrong done or threatened, or to obtain information on the identity, habits, conduct, movements, whereabouts, affliations, transactions, reputation, credibility, or character of any person, or to locate and recover lost or stolen property, or to determine the cause of or responsibility for any libel or slander, or any fire, accident, or damage to property, or to secure evident for use in any legistlative, administrative, or judicial investigation or proceeding.
Although Introtech is licensed and qualified to conduct any aspect of private investigation, we usually limit our involvement to crash investigation issues alone and only when specifically necessary to do so.
When required by the unique aspects of a case, our involvement in private investigation typically revolves around issues such as:
- Witness search
- Interviewing witnesses
- Criminal background checks
- Driving record checks
- Vehicle registration and VIN number verification
- Fire cause and origin investigations
- Fraud investigations
- Vehicle title search
