Can I change workers’ comp insurance adjusters?
Answer: Not usually.
Every insurance adjuster has their own “style” of handling workers’ compensation claims and dealing with injured workers. Some pretend to be nice and “on your side”, while others are openly aggressive and difficult. Other adjusters simply ignore you unless they’re absolutely forced to deal with your phone calls and emails. Remember… workers’ comp insurance adjusters are not your friend.

The Texas Department of Insurance sets strict standards for licensed insurance adjusters in the way they handle claims and even respond to claimants (injured workers). Still, it is rare for an insurance adjuster to be disciplined for breaking these rules and standards. When it does happen, it may result in a new adjuster being assigned to your case.
