An AOE/COE (Arising Out of Employment or in the Course of Employment) inquiry can help you make an informed, prudent and timely decision regarding the acceptance or denial of workers’ compensation claims. These inquiries require sensitivity, a solid work ethic and highly qualified field surveillance. Our AOE/COE inquiry process is centered on determining the truth and facts surrounding an alleged “on the job” injury.

When an AOE/COE is Most Important
An AOE/COE inquiry is especially advised when the claim is reported on a Monday morning, with no witnesses in a secluded work area, when the claimant was on the road for company business or operating company equipment. A properly completed AOE/COE inquiry may determine that the alleged injury was actually caused during one of these common situations:
- Barroom fight
- Family domestic violence
- Amateur sport participation
- Off-road ATV operation
- Single vehicle crash
- Out-of-state motor vehicle crash
- Gentlemen’s Club visits
A delayed request for an AOE/COE inquiry may mean much of the following important information is lost:
Witnesses Not Normally Present
Video from Security Cameras
Local Newspaper and TV Reports
Better decisions based on solid information and available evidence are possible.
