And that is why in order to settle the claim as minimum as possible, the insurance companies employs experts, known as Loss Adjusters. Loss adjusters review the whole detail of the insurance claims and make sure that the insurance company will pay as little as possible. These loss adjusters are also known as insurance loss assessors. They used to visit the property, take photographs and make notes of each and every loss and damage fire has caused and then they will present a well maintained report to the insurance company suggesting the lowest possible price settlement to cover the cost of fire damage.

May be you will find that the amount paid by an insurance company is not at all covering all the damages in the fire. Unfortunately there are many people who don't know how to tackle since they are not the experts. But in such cases expert help is available from both the sides.
