Insurance adjusters investigate insurance claims to determine the legitimacy and value of claims and recommend settlements. There are three categories of insurance adjusters:
Company adjusters (often referred to as simply the "insurance adjuster") are employed by the insurance company.
Independent adjusters work for various insurance companies an independent agents rather than employees.
Public adjusters work for policyholders rather than insurance companies. They negotiate with insurers on behalf of policyholders and receive a portion of a claims settlement.
