Welcome to Dawes Investigations

Dawes Investigations has two operational functions, as an Investigator and as a Commercial Sub Agent.




There are two types of investigations conducted by investigators.

  • One is factual, which involves obtaining statements (Audio/Written) for a variety of insurance or legal matters. This also includes drafting reports for the insurance companies to make accurate decisions regarding claims.
  • Second is surveillance, which is to obtain photos/video evidence for legal or insurance claims.

Dawes Investigations concentrates on factual investigation for insurance claims and legal matters such as:

  • Worker's Compensations
  • Public Liability
  • Income Protection
  • CTP
  • Burglary
  • Property Damage
  • Stolen Vehicles/Property
  • Accidents


We examine matters pertaining to insurance claims that are suspicious or otherwise in doubt for some reason. Some insurance companies have their own in-house investigation teams while other companies sub-contract the work to private investigation firms like ours. Although such investigations are sometimes conducted to combat fraud, very often our organisation will be working simply to establish the circumstances of a particular claim.
