Job Description
What sets GEICO apart from our competition?  One key factor is our ability to consistently provide outstanding claims service.  As a Litigation Adjuster, you are there for our customers when they need us most - after they have had a serious accident.  Being involved in a car accident can be a traumatic experience for most people and it takes a very special kind of person to empathize with and assist our customers when they are worried, upset, sustained or have caused catastrophic injuries or even possibly death.

As a GEICO Litigation Adjuster, you will learn how to investigate and handle a variety of claims ranging from minor fender-benders to major accidents resulting in injury claims including but not limited to catastrophic injury and files in litigation. These claims involve liability disputes that often are not cut-and-dry, and can be quite complex! 

 

As a newly hired associate you'll go through a comprehensive, industry-leading training program.  First, we will teach you basic insurance concepts.  Then, you will advance to learn about complex claim handling, contracts, determining legal liability of a claim, and settlement negotiation.  You will learn to ask the proper questions and listen attentively to make fair and proper settlement decisions.
