I'm not an attorney but I do live in California. I am here due to circumstances beyond my control. I would get up from this computer, walk to my car and drive at the maximum legal speed to "Bum Fvck Egypt' if I could swing it. If you value anything like personal liberties forget California!!! I have been in 48 of the 50 states and a number of foreign countries. Aside from Massachusetts and New York I have never seen worse. I have reported power theft with no results. I have reported an habitual drunk driver with no results. A cop let a 16 year old thug steal his patrol car and kill two senior citizens. About half of our prison population is comprised of illegal aliens. Our legislators routinely spend twice what the state collects in taxes. One city has "Green Police". I have to go to City Hall this week and beg for a permit to trim my trees. A school crossing guard was killed by a motorist doing over twice the speed limit; the cure "Speed Bumps", enforcing the law was never even considered. We have a supreme court that routinely overrules the voters. And, the list goes on and on. There was even talk about some sort of toilet paper limit. If you come, do so on a round-trip ticket because if you are any sort of individual you will want to leave in very short order.
Now, on the other hand, if you are a very left wing type of individual who wants and expects your government to make every decision in your life you will love it here.
Any claims job is going to be stressful. That's the nature of the beast. The stresses felt by a WC adjuster and a P&C adjuster may be slightly different but I can tell you now...one's not worse than the other. They are two completely different animals. You're trying to compare horses to zebras.
I am a P&C adjuster. I choose that because the first claims job I was hired to do and subsequently trained to do was handle P&C claims. Had my first job been as a WC adjuster, then that would have been my specialty.
If you are looking for a low stress job...stay away from any type of insurance claims handling.
