Insurance Claims Adjusters

Insurance Claims Adjusters

Overview

The 3,200 insurance claims adjusters in the US investigate, appraise and settle insurance claims. Public adjusters negotiate settlements with an insurance company on behalf of a policyholder. Company staff or independent adjusters represent the interests of the insurance company. Firms may specialize or offer services across a broad range of fields.

Payments Based On Contingency

Many claims adjusters primarily work on contingency and only receive payment when a claim is settled.

Integrated Process And Technology

Advances in technology in the insurance business have increasingly moved parts of the claims management process from the field back into the carrier’s office, reducing dependence on third-party claims adjusters.
