Plumbing losses are very common and can cause substantial water damage to your home or business. You may be surprised to find out that plumbing losses can result from faulty pipes, typical wear and tear, inadequate construction, or overflow of water. These are just a few of the possible causes of a plumbing loss that may ultimately result in water damage to your structure.
Many insurance companies try to minimize, ignore, or flat out deny valid plumbing claims. For example, they may undervalue the amount of damage that occurred, or send a check for an amount that is inadequate to fix the property. Their hope is that the policy holder will not attempt to recoup the actual amount of money it will take to fix the property. Even if you do all you can to cooperate with your insurer, you may still find that your valid claim is being denied. The South Florida plumbing loss attorneys at DRG Firm are here to help you.
Plumbing damage can lead to a multitude of hazardous conditions, including:
- Water Damage and/or Flooding
- Toxic Mold
- Structural Damage
- Electrical Damage (which can lead to fires)
