What Is An Insurance Claims Adjuster?

An insurance adjuster is the field agent of the insurance world. When someone makes a claim, the insurance company needs to know whether the claim falls under the claimant's policy and how liable the insurance company is.

To gather this information, companies send an insurance claims adjuster. The adjuster visits the site of the event that precipitated the claim and conducts a thorough investigation to determine the validity and value of that claim.
