Well, the first question to be asked is, Is the adjuster a professional soils engineer? Or, any kind of engineer? If not, then our hero needs to have the carrier either fetch, or authorize the fetching of an appropriate engineer.

These days, even the most obvious of situations seems to need outside expert opinions. I'm almost to the point that I need a managers written authorization to go to the bathroom!

The property has a 100 ft retaining wall 7 ft high, has developed a lean of approximately one and one/half degrees the brick veneer collapsed revealing a crack in concrete. Man made run off from two homes hits this concrete wall in twenty foot section, after heavy rains there is heavy seepage along forty feet of the wall, this seepage can last for a month or more. What are the appropriate test/s the adjuster should carry out, how should this be documented.
