Adjuster

A person who investigates a claim on an insurance policy. That is, an adjuster observes any damage, consults police reports and/or hospital records, and generally ensures that an event occurred the way it was said to have occurred. Adjusters may work for a policyholder (in which case they have an incentive to see a claim paid), an insurance company (in which case they have an incentive to see a claim denied), or some other interested party.
