So, you want to become a liability adjuster. What is it exactly that caused you to look at a liability-adjusting career as an option? Many people who enter this field have had some corresponding experience in a somewhat related field like law enforcement or investigations. In some cases, they have a legal background or possibly a medical background. I do know some nurses who have transferred to liability adjusting. Others come to the field out of a simple interest in the insurance business.
As compared to other careers in areas such as law, law enforcement, or the medical field, it is important to understand the working conditions of a liability adjuster.
Liability adjusters can either work in an office setting as an examiner or they can work in the field conducting physical investigation of accident sites and interviewing claimant and witnesses to incidents. This means that there is a fair bit of flexibility within the liability adjuster’s career. If you prefer to be out on the road experiencing new things then and outside liability adjuster is the position for you. A laptop, camera and voice recorder are all the tools you need. If you prefer an office setting with predictable office hours and a regular schedule where you work under familiar conditions every day then perhaps an office position as a liability examiner may be the job for you. In either case, a career as a liability adjuster can be very interesting. You will learn about strange and unpredictable events that have had significant impact on the lives of other people. Some of the stories you will hear as a liability adjuster will be disturbing. Some will be depressing. When leaves change because of insurance claims, chances are something bad has happened to somebody. Dealing with people who have had these bad things happen to them can sometimes be very challenging. Emotions run high and it can be difficult to enter into any discussions about the insurance claim itself without having emotions run very high.
There is never a dull day though. Liability adjusting is one of the most interesting facets of the insurance business.
