FLORIDA CAST IRON PIPE LEAKS

We’ll fight for the maximum compensation owed to you under the terms of your policy for water damage due to cast iron pipes.

DOES HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE COVER CAST IRON PIPES?

CLAIM DENIALS SHOULDN’T MEAN “END OF DISCUSSION.” FIND OUT IF YOU HAVE A CASE TO FILE A CAST-IRON PIPES LAWSUIT AGAINST YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY.

Most insurance policies in Florida should cover the damage caused by cast iron plumbing problems. In fact, they should cover the cost of replacing all of the house’s iron pipes. Due to the high costs of cast iron damage replacement, insurance companies may try to undervalue or wrongfully deny claims for pipe failure—leaving homeowners without the means to cover out-of-pocket costs in a demanding and unfair position.

There are two common reasons for a claim denial: timeliness and apparent damage. It’s important to file your claim as soon as the water damage becomes visible, which usually means within the first 72 hours. Otherwise, insurance companies might deny on grounds that regular upkeep was not performed on the house.

The insurance company may send an inspector to your home to assess the damage. Remember that you can also call in your own experts for estimates, which may help if you need to take legal action.

If you’re a homeowner facing property damage for faulty cast iron pipes, the insurance recovery lawyers at Williams Law, P.A. can help you file a claim with your homeowner’s insurance and secure compensation for replacement costs. We can also help you file a cast iron pipe lawsuit in the case of an insurance dispute.

How Much DOes It cost to replace cast iron pipes?

Replacing your pipes can cost you thousands. The price depends on the size of the project, materials used, and labor. To add injury to insult, these pipes are often buried in the foundation slab or within walls, making it hard to visibly detect when our pipes are starting to fail and the water damage possibly happening. 

Although removing all the leaky plumbing and putting in new pipes can cost the most, sometimes it’s more economical than waiting and potentially having disastrous water damage, too.

The truth is there are so many variables and factors that contribute to the deterioration of cast iron pipe. And while there’s no way to know when your pipe will go bad, there is no doubt that it will go bad.

 

 

Should I Hire a Lawyer For My Pipe Claim?

From the first phone call you make to report your claim, the insurance company has a team of professionals working above all to underpay or totally deny your claim. 

  • We’ve seen the tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying legitimate cast iron sewer claims and take every step necessary to get you the full amount that is rightfully owed to you.
  • There are never any out-of-pocket costs for us to represent you! We are only paid if we win your case and when we do win your case, we are paid by the insurance company as part of your resolution of the claim. If there is no recovery- no fees or costs whatsoever.
  • We understand the frustration of a denied, delayed or underpaid pipe or water damage insurance claim. Your focus should be getting your home or business repaired, not on fighting the insurance company.

I did not think I'd get lawyer to call back the same day in regards to questions about pipe lawsuit. Not only did they call me back, but I was able to remotely sign documents needed to start my case. Thank you, WLA.
