What Does a Workers Compensation Claims Adjuster Do
As a workers' compensation claims adjuster, you analyze workers’ compensation claims, review documentation, and authorize payments. When employees are injured on the job or become ill due to working conditions, they can submit a workers’ comp claim for compensation to cover medical bills and lost time or pay for missed work. Your job duties are to examine the documentation, determine whether compensation is appropriate, and if so, the compensation amount. A claims examiner reviews your claims to ensure that all parties follow proper guidelines and workers’ comp laws.
