In 2001 SWA was engaged by a firm of solicitors to conduct skip tracing to locate numerous potential claimants and witnesses to one of Australia’s darkest defence accidents.  SWA had over 60 potential claimants to locate, some of whom suffered severe post-traumatic stress and had totally withdrawn from society and become recluses in remote areas of Australia and south east Asia.

SWA’s investigation and involvement in this file was over 4 ½ years and some of the potential claimants located had in fact died before the case came to court.  We are unable to give further details regarding this matter but in this particular case the investigators and skip tracers involved  spent many hours identifying historic addresses, interviewing and encouraging people to assist us to help connect with the various potential claimants who in most cases had no interest in reliving the events.
