Insurance adjusters meet clients on the worst days of their lives, and they must be diplomatic, tactful, and ethical. The job is not only about returning phone calls and doing paperwork. Whether the case involves cargo damage, residential and business property damage, fire, fraud, burglary, or arson, it's the job of the adjuster to get to the bottom of things.
Author Jonathan L. Scott has spent more than thirty years as an adjuster. In a series of short stories, loosely based on actual insurance claims, he recalls navigating the human dimension of balancing a client's circumstances with policy requirements and the law-and it's never easy.
All adjusters investigate, evaluate, and settle claims, but the best ones are worth their weight in gold several times over. The bad ones, however, can cause huge problems for the public and their employers. If you've ever been curious about the work of an insurance adjuster, read on and find out how each claim becomes its own little adventure.

YES, I like all audiobooks that I can turn off and then pick right up again when I next start to drive. The narrator's voice was an easy listen.
When the author got his speeding ticket. I have also received a ticket for going one mile over the speed limit.
The large lady who fell through the bath room floor. She was huffing and puffing just to tell her story. I could just see this character in my mind. BIG! Mr. Bennington gave her that voice of "I am soooo big I can hardly walk".
STORIES OF REAL LIFE DISASTERS.
i would recommend this book for anyone who has any interest in the insurance bussiness
there is a bath room scene where a woman falls through the floor and Mr. Bennington gives that character a great personality
this book should be required reading for all budding adjusters and insurance people
I think the book gave me a better understanding of the insurance industry. I never knew what an insurance adjuster was or what his function was in my claims
I recommend the audio book. I found it kept my attention and turned up my interest in the insurance industry in a way I did not think possible. The narration was good and the writing was in a very clipped manner almost like reading an insurance claim!
Yes, if you like to know how your insurance claim is handled. Not only how it is handled but what and were it goes. A whole world out beyond the insurance salesman
The author but there were a few characters that the narrator gave a personality to
He gave some of the characters the author had to deal with more personality.
THE MASKED MAN BEHIND YOUR INSURANCE CLAIM
Over all the book as good because it gave me an idea about what happens when I make an insurance claim WE LIKED IT!!!
We liked the narrator. He spook so clearly and it was easy to understand him.
We were surprised at the damage that occurs from natural events and how ill prepared we are.for them.
No, the chapters are broken down into their own world and are not connected
The subject is dry but I still enjoyed the book!
The narrator or story teller because he was the story
I liked Joshuas Bennington read and he gave a few characters even more character
I would take one of the major claims and dramatize it.
We learned what an adjuster does, kinda educational
I liked the many stories of the people he run into doing the adjustment assignments from from those near his home office to the ones he had to travel to service.
I found out what an adjuster does and I put a face on the adjusters.
The whole book is done in a story teller voice and only a few times were there characters but Mr. Bennington did entertaining voices for each..
Memoirs of an insurance adjuster.
I would have liked to hear more about some of his cases. Some cases could almost be a book in it self.
The narrator made the story interesting and gave it some life.
I have never read any other books about insurance before, so I can't compare other books on the subject. This one got my attention and held it after the first few chapters.
He did a few different characters. They were all different and only in the book for a few lines, but each character came to mind when Mr. Bennington spook their lines. I could almost visualize the character.
Who or what is an adjuster?
I think everyone in the insurance industry and those interested in what happens to your insurance claim should read this book
This book provides you a glimpse on how insurance adjusting works. I recommend anybody in the insurance field to listen/read this book
The book was a story about the different problems that people run into in life. From hurricanes to fires and the list goes on.
I have listened to three other books by Joshua Bennington. They were all good but this one must have been one of his first because the others were a little smoother, but still good.
When the fat lady fell through the floor!!!
I would recommend this book. It was entertaining as well as informative and the reader made it just a little more enjoyable.
