Insurance 101 – Chapter 7 – Volume 47 – Establish Rapport

Establish Rapport

The adjuster should establish a rapport with the insured at that first meeting so that the insured recognizes that he and the adjuster must work together as a team. Establishing rapport requires time and patience. It is accomplished by expressing an honest curiosity and interest in the insured, or claimant, as a person, before getting to the details of the loss and claim. It can be done by simple personal inquiries about the insured’s, or claimant’s, family and profession.
