An insurance adjuster is a representative of a automobile insurance company that will often be the point of communication after you are in an accident. This individual is tasked with trying to resolve your injury and/or property damage claim(s) by writing you a check for your losses and obtain a signed release in return. It’s important to carefully review everything that the insurance adjuster sends you and get clarification on what they are considering in your personal injury settlement before signing any documents. Often times those who have been hurt will sign off on their release, cash a check and end up needing additional medical treatment and are unable to get it covered by the insurance company because they have signed off on their release already.

While every insurance company has different standards and tools to help asses values on cases, it’s important to know that the main objective of an insurance adjuster is to limit the amount of money the insurance company pays in order to settle your claim, after all they are a business.
