Term Of The Day – Outside Adjuster
An adjuster who usually spends 3.5 days or more on the road handling claims. Workers Comp claims department evolved in the 1980’s to all but eliminate this type of adjusting. Most companies now use telephone adjusters to handle Workers Comp claims. I think the cost benefit analysis would show that there is a cost justification for outside/on-the-road adjusting.
I used to be an outside Workers Comp claims adjuster when I first started in insurance.
