Insurance Claims Are All We Handle.

Most property insurance policies may provide coverage for the replacement of your leaking pipes, but the cost to replace your cast iron pipe plumbing system can cost tens of thousands of dollars, so it is important to present your cast iron pipe claim correctly.  

Why Hiring A Florida Pipe Damage Lawyer Is A Smart Decision For Your Insurance Claim?

Insurance companies are not your friend.  From the first phone call you make to report your claim, the insurance company has a team of professionals working to either underpay or totally deny your claim.  The pursuit of the repair or replacement of your iron pipes from your insurance company is not something you should attempt without having an expert on your side.  

The question of whether to replace the cast iron piping in your home is obvious – these pipes must be replaced, or greater property damage awaits.  The harder question is how to pay for the replacement of these pipes.

Despite its common use in the industry, cast iron pipe is severely prone to failure as the result of rusting and corrosion.  Although the building industry has stopped using these materials, there are millions of homes that still have pipes made of cast iron.

Between 20% and 30% of all insurance claims are for water damage.  Damage from leaking pipes can sometimes cost over $100,000.00 and create a total loss of your home.

Insurance companies will often try to deny or underpay pipe damage claims for, at least, one of the following reasons:

  • Ordinary Wear and Tear
  • Failure of Proper Maintenance
  • Damage was not “Sudden and Accidental”
  • Pre-Existing Damage
  • Leaks Lasting Longer than 14 Days
  • No Coverage for “Flood” Losses
  • No Coverage for “Plumbing” Issues Generally

Although the insurance companies often rely on these reasons to deny coverage, these exemptions many times do not “hold water” and are as faulty as the iron pipes sought to be repaired.

What NOT To DO If Cast Iron Pipe Leaks?

  • Do not go in a room with standing water if your electricity is still turned on
  • Do not use your vacuum to remove water
  • Do not turn on overhead lights if you have water damage in your ceiling
  • Do not use electrical appliances until water damage remediation is complete

When filing an insurance claim related to a burst pipe, make sure to never to use the word “flooded,” even if you are simply trying to describe the incident and damage. Insurance companies love to deny claims that have anything to do with floodwater—don’t give them the opportunity!

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