Publisher's Summary

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.

REAL LIFE STORIES

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Adjuster Stories?

When the author got his speeding ticket. I have also received a ticket for going one mile over the speed limit.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

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".

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

STORIES OF REAL LIFE DISASTERS.

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!
