The claims manager is the contact between the insured and the insurer. He or she may be employed by the insurer or an independent contractor who is insured by the insurer to investigate and adjust insurance claims on its behalf. The adjuster is a person who is responsible for having examined a claim in order to fulfill the promises made by the insurance policy and to determine
whether the company is liable to the insured or an applicant and to what extent. The investigation may include interviews with the parties involved, property inspections and review of hospital records or police reports.
The Claims Investigator
Although a small part of the job of the claims manager is to investigate, the adjuster does many more things. Insurance companies now retain the services ̵
The insurance department's claims department has a hierarchy based on the complexity and value of the losses. The claims administrator's authority is limited, regardless of whether he or she is employed by the insurer or a contractor. The claims administrator has more authority to settle claims than the adjuster and will be consulted by the vehicle adjuster if the loss exceeds the adjuster's authority. The supervisor controls the work with several adjusters, based on his or her greater experience, education and training.
The insured can meet with a lawyer representing the insurer in two circumstances:
- If the insured has been sued by a third party the insurer will retain a lawyer to defend the insured at the insurer's expense. Advisors will meet with the insured and work to present the most effective defense for the suit. Insured persons often meet with non-life attorneys in a situation where the insured is in a car accident and a third party is suing him or her for damages that have occurred in the accident.
- If there is a problem with coverage or with the extent of the claim, if the insured retains a lawyer to present his claim, or if fraud is suspected, the insurer will retain attorneys to protect his interests. Lawyers who represent insurance companies in such situations are often called "coverage advice". Coverage advice will usually be dealt with by the insured's personal lawyer.
