Put Our Experienced Water Damage Attorneys On Your Side
Water damage is a common cause of insurance claims. Policyholders who have faithfully paid their insurance premiums are entitled to a full and fair settlement when filing a claim for water damage.
When water infiltrates your home following a flood or hurricane, or as a result of burst pipes, the damage can be extensive and dangerous. Water penetration can damage furniture, insulation, drywall, roofing, walls, carpets and floors. Water damage can lead to toxic mold, which can create serious health risks to occupants.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always see it that way. We are prepared to litigate on behalf of homeowners and business owners who are wrestling with their insurance company over a denied, delayed or underpaid insurance claim due to water damage or any other kind of property damage.
A plumbing leak is a fast way to ruin your property and rack up expensive repair costs. If you live in a two-story household and a leak springs upstairs, the problems will be even more widespread as the water drips down and soaks into the structure below. In cases regarding duplexes or adjacent town-homes, the leak on your property could ultimately destroy the property of your neighbors. Not only will the water typically cause serious problems in terms of ruining carpet or hardwood floors, furniture and personal possessions, but it will also frequently result in the development of mold. To prevent the buildup of mold, it is necessary to take swift action to dry up as much of the water as possible, to maximize circulation in the property and to put up a tarp or other measures to keep additional water out. In many cases, such as in the aftermath of a hurricane, it is not possible to take such measures quickly enough to avoid mold buildup.

You have already been through enough, and we believe that you should not have to fight with the insurance company over the value of your claim. Let us advocate on your behalf and hold the insurance company accountable for bad faith.
