Legally Speaking

What should injury victims know about surveillance practices in New Brunswick?

Insurance companies will often conduct video surveillance of injury victims as well as monitor their social media accounts.

Although distasteful, surveillance is legal in New Brunswick – as long as the person doing it does not trespass (i.e. go on your property).

Evidence from surveillance and social media postings only matters if it contradicts what is reported to your doctors and other treating professionals or any evidence you have given.

Insurance companies are required to disclose, as part of the litigation process, that they have done surveillance to produce it if they intend to use it in court.
