Ever heard of insurance fraud? You have those people to thank for the
reason we(claims adjusters) have to ask probing questions. If you have
nothing to hide then there is no reason why this should bother anyone. Feel
free to get an attorney. Feel free to get a second opinion. Contrary to
popular belief, we got into this field because it pays well; not to screw
people over. We have no perks to doing so, BUT if we pay out on a claim
that turns out to be fraud then we do get into trouble. Everything a claims
adjuster does is registered to the state and if they violate that then they
could lose their license(which would also cause them to lose their job). An
adjuster can also completely break down everything that was looked at in
your claim. ASK! I am on here writing this because it’s frustrating to have
so much bad mouthing going on like we get a kick out of not paying out
claims…it’s not our personal money. If you have an honest claim why do I
care about paying it to you? Ask yourself that next time when you are
ringing up your ambulance chasing attorney’s who DO have personal gain in
getting people/companies screwed over in some way. You can also thank them
for OUR rates being driven up(yes claims adjusters share your rates and
also file claims at times that aren’t allowed to be handled by anyone who
knows them; go figure?). Insurance companies can easily raise rates to
cover claims over time. Which is why your rates go up especially if you
live in a high-risk zip code. We just want to get your claim handled and
over with. You know that hard to deal with customer that comes into your
workplace and gives you a headache? Guess what? We don’t like that either
and just want everything to get done as smoothly as possible. I actually
enjoy hearing thank you and have a great day!

I have had to deal with Progressive who insured an attorney who totaled my
daily driver; I was left without a functional vehicle. Next, my own
insurance refused to pursue a hit & run in my driveway or come out and
inspect the damages without filing a complaint to the state. Had more bad
faith from my own insurance company over vandalism, State Farm treated me
like a criminal!

Now I have another No-Fault accident and am getting harassed by a 3rd party
adjuster demanding I give them a recorded statement. Was low balled by
their adjuster whom insists some of the property damage is not related to
the collision. Insists refurbished parts are as good as factory original
parts and estimated the repair labor much lower than two other estimates.
Even a wheel alignment was quoted at a rate much lower than a reputable
shop will charge to have that service performed as most tire shops do not
have the proper tools or training to make proper adjustments. How is it
fair to charge me for betterment when the repairs were never necesary until
a collision happened due to negligence and plastic filler was never in any
of the body panels diminishing their value?

Good video, good audio, and straight to the point.

Bianca Contreras says:

I work in PI in Santa Monica CA and I have to say this is an excellent
video, I was a property and casualty adjuster back in the day and you are
right our job was to get people to acceptour lowest offer and to debunk
peoples injuries.

I’ve been a claims adjuster for 7 months PD and BI and I’ve never been
train to pay less or minimize claims. I’ve been trying to find out who’s is
really at fault and detect fraud, lies. sadly I find more fraud when people
have attorneys faking BI claims. but not even once I was told, you have to
pay less, try not to pay. is more about determining who is really at fault
in an accident, when it comes to an accident, the first person lying is the
attorney. I might not do this for long but is lame

Newtttton says:

wow you’re naive. then answer me why insurance companies are soooo eager to
settle claims as quickly as possible. they called me the very next day
while I was resting and recovering—trying to fish out
information….pretending like they care. the lady was like, so tell me
about your accident. go see the police report. referred her to my lawyer.

Michael Steinger says:

It is better to seek out an attorney because you know that they have your
interests. Insurance company adjusters have only the interests of the
company at heart.
