An adjuster is an employee of the insurance company, who tries to drive an early settlement of a claim for damages against a person or property. Adjusters’ main objective is to make a settlement before the injured party has consulted a lawyer. While the name adjuster sounds neutral; it’s anything but. In many cases, they would do, whatever, they can to prevent attorney involvement. Here are some of their well-practiced lines: “You don’t need a lawyer, they only confuse things. Why would you want to give a chunk of your money to a lawyer? I am here to make sure your bills are paid and you are well taken care of…” Adjusters also use delay and low balling tactics with an unsuspecting injured party, who is already in state of anxiety.
