It is likely that your claim will be paid, but it is not certain. The function of a claims adjuster is typically to examine how much a typical claim is worth. For example, if the damage to the car exceeds the bluebook value for the car pre-crash, the claims adjuster may choose to pay you the bluebook value rather than pay for repairs. However, some claims adjusters may be able to dispute the validity of the claim as well; it depends on the insurance company and it depends on your contract.
