Who are they?

What do they do?

What's the catch?

What's their cost and who pays them?

I had these same questions, and a friend of mine got into a small accident on the highway around chaguanas (they are fine now) and forensys happened to be passing by and dealt with them.

Apparently they take pictures/statements/evidence of what happened on the accident site and forward it to insurance companies for them to make a quicker decision with adustments and such. From what they themselves say, the insurance companies are the ones that pay forensys for services rendered because overall they help speed up and smoothen the process.

Me, i still skeptical. It supposedly costs you, the end user, nothing. But if you at fault and your premiums go up then you still end up paying for it in an indirect way.

I had an accident recently, the other party was insured by Beacon. Forensys were called a report was done. It was blatantly the other party fault.

The insurance companies decided against me, I was very upset and made some calls and spoke to some investigators and brokers.

Forensys is paid by Beacon, Beacon is a sponsor and a heavy promoter, just go to Beacoms website. Also it was hinted that the principal of Beacon has a vested interest in Forensys.

This is a conflict of interest, Beacon is paying them, they will always be biased towards them, and then you have the ownership conflict too.

Be careful when dealing with Forensys, they are not independent.

Forensys does not say who's right or wrong. They only supply the insurance company with the details surrounding the accident ,the data. The police would have been the ones who coded the accident and said you were wrong. Beacon is the bound by the police report and the adjuster's/investigator's report.

I have been told by police officers 'it eh we job to say who right or wrong. We job is tuh take yuh report, and charge yuh if we in our investigations find yuh break de law'

I don't know what to believe now

Sometimes people give different versions of an accident. Sometimes both claim they are right. A senior policeman in the station codes the accident and they give an official stamped report. The investigator has to make sense out of this, but sometimes the police report is not quite correct and sometimes does not have to be adopted. The investigator advises the insurer what his findings are, and then it is left up to them to decide about payment. Forensys only gives details of the accident.

Did you and other party make station report or relied on forensys report ?

Unless you are at the scene, the police, investigators and insurance company can only go by the information collected and reported.

In my case, fortunately for the other driver, certain pictures of tire marks were omitted despite me pointed them out. Only half the information was collected.

I was actually instructed by my own insurance company that I should NOT have cooperated, as Forensys has no right to be collecting data, and it predejuiced their position.

his means that all private vehicle owners currently insured with Guardian General, Beacon Insurance, Massy United and Furness Anchorage are entitled to utilize this service free of charge, should they be in an accident or incident.
