The Claim File
The adjuster must keep a complete, clean, and detailed investigation file that can be readily referred to in analyzing and assessing the claim. The adjuster must maintain a factual file. Derogatory comments or conclusions regarding the insured can be damaging if disclosed at trial. Comments concerning subjective opinions of the insured can be misinterpreted and have no value in establishing coverage or amount of loss.
