The Austin Claims Association Seminar
ver the years, the opportunity for adjusters to have more impact has changed, bringing with it a more strategic and dynamic approach to claims and promoting better outcomes across the board. Risk managers and claims managers are not only tasked with proactively protecting against risks; they’re looking at how to reduce expenses. The adjuster is such an important part of the process. They have a financial responsibility and are held more so accountable for today than 10 years ago. The adjuster plays a vital role during a claim’s lifecycle. From interacting with injured workers, claimants, carriers or other individuals on the claim, the adjuster is the person “in the know.” They may be viewed as a transactional resource in the past by some, however, that role has changed in today’s world. This webinar will focus on the importance of the Adjuster in partnering with their clients and working collaboratively to think “outside the box” and positively impact a client’s Risk Management program.
