Personal Injury Lawyer, Brian Hilliard with Slater & Gordon in Hobart has raised issues about excessive use of surveillance for both workers compensation and motor accident claimants. The following article appears in today’s Hobart Mercury newspaper.
I have previously raised concerns about this issue:
With increasing use of technology the scope for intrusion into personal space has increased dramatically. I am yet to see surveillance of a workers compensation claimant from a drone, but it’s probably not far off!
There needs to be a public debate about what is acceptable, so that the law can catch up with technology.
