    Loss adjusters and loss assessors both sound a lot confusing and many people get confused about their roles in the claim process. Loss adjusters are hired by insurance companies and loss assessors are hired by claimants, so goal of loss adjusters is to compensate the amount as low as possible and loss assessors try to maximize the claim amount.
