Adjustment of Fire Losses

Adjustment of Fire Losses


“The process of adjustment is simple or complex, according as the contract of insurance may be specific, general or mixed; and is based upon certain universally recognized general principals, which remain unchanged; yet there are issues constantly presented, arising from circumstances and conditions so varied, which have to be met and treated in so many ways, and under such a variety of aspects and phases, that adjusting scientifically, man be termed an art, or more property speaking a gift and art combined, only to be perfected by long and varied experience, diligent study and close observation. “

Jeremiah Griswold, General Adjuster
Handbook of Adjustment of Loss Or Damage by Fire
Insurance Monitor, New York. 1868
