Investigate. Estimate. Negotiate. Shed light on complex situations to help people return to their normal lives quickly.
When you’re a claims adjuster, what do you do? Your work is similar to that of a detective. Whether it’s in the context of a theft or a fire, you come in after the event to conduct an investigation. You estimate the damage, then negotiate the settlement to compensate the client. Stimulating and captivating, this job allows certain professionals to work outside the office to investigate at the scene of the incident.
A good claims adjuster is a keen observer who doesn’t let any detail slip past them. They are an empathetic person with a good critical mind who wants to help their clients while being capable of examining each situation properly.
Your career. Your lifestyle. When you’re a claims adjuster, you work at independent firms or insurance companies. You can therefore work in an office, on the road, or even at your own firm.
