In September 2007, I’d blogged to alert adjusters about safety concerns with a reminder about a Tampa, FL adjuster murdered in the line of work. Here is a link to that prior blog:
Today with the news all around us of storms in TX, AR, OK and other states as the storm is moving, it’s time to unfortunately remind everyone again but this time by a news story which happened in March 2008 in Jackson,TN when a Nationwide adjuster was shot in his vehicle and his laptop stolen. I have no additional details other than that as listed in this news article. A forum post on another site last month reported the adjuster died. I do not know if that is fact or rumor but the story alone is another warning to all adjusters to watch your surroundings and stay extremely concerned about your safety. I pray the adjuster involved did recover. Let us know if you know the actual outcome of this horrible story.
Here is a link to the story that ran in the Jackson Sun on March 27, 2008:
Our thoughts and prayers are with this adjuster and/or his family as he recovers.
