What does an accident investigator do?
An accident investigator collects and examines evidence from various types of traffic accidents.

“Most insurance companies that hire accident investigators prefer their employees to have a background as law enforcement officers, private investigators, claims adjusters or examiners due to excellent interviewing and interrogation skills. Licensing for accident investigators vary by state so it’s best to contact your school of interest to find out your state’s exact requirements. There are continuing education courses you would be expected to fulfill, as well, which also varies state by state.“[ref]
