Both are handled very different and need to be approached in a different manner.
Loss Assessors will often hire external professional assistance if a claim becomes complicated. Noteworthy forensic teams can often be called for to assist in protecting your position in parallel to Insurers own specialists doing the same for them.

Although Loss Assessors and Loss Adjusters are both Insurance Claim Professionals and sound quite similar, they sit on opposite sides of the fence.
So what is the difference?
Loss Assessors exclusively represent you and are the policyholders specialist to get everything you are entitled to. They are your Professionals in the claim process.
Loss Adjusters are the opposite party in the claim process. They are there to protect insurers financial liability for the claim, seeking for ways to ‘adjust’ to pay out the minimum settlement or even refuse the claim entirely which is called a repudiation.
After you have notified your Insurance Company of the incident. Insurance Companies will send in their own representatives - a Loss Adjuster. It might seem like they are there to help but they are not truly independent. They are are engaged and paid for by your Insurance Company to protect Insurers interests not yours.
Their only role is to limit the Insurance company's exposure to cost and investigate the cause of the incident. Additionally they may interview you and look to find any possible non-compliance with the policy contract which might be used to deny the claim. In these scenarios If you say the wrong thing you risk jeopardising your claim. As a result your Insurer can repudiate the claim and you could receive nothing.
The Loss Adjuster will look for any vulnerabilities or inconsistencies in the claim circumstances that will allow them to refuse a claim on technical grounds.
