Making Sure You Get the Most Out of Your Insurance Claim

A burst pipe in your home can be one of the most disruptive, costly, and destructive events you may ever experience. It can cause extensive damage to personal property, business equipment, and even the structure of the building itself. If left unchecked or improperly addressed, it can quickly lead to mold growth and further deterioration of your home's foundation. In addition to causing physical damage, a burst pipe can also make it difficult or impossible for you to live in your home comfortably until repairs are made. 

The cost of repairing these damages is often far more than most homeowners anticipate — especially when considering that many insurance companies will deny claims related to water damage from an unexpected pipe burst due to “wear and tear” on plumbing systems. That’s why hiring an experienced Pensacola burst pipes attorney at Crawford Law is so important. We understand Florida laws governing insurance coverage disputes involving water damage caused by unexpected burst pipes and will fight aggressively for maximum compensation on your behalf.

If you’ve had your insurance claim denied or were paid much less than the actual value of the damage, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our experienced attorneys are here to help you get what you deserve from your insurer. 

Don’t wait — call (850) 220-2098 today or complete our online form to schedule a consultation. We look forward to helping make things right for you and restoring peace of mind in your home.

What Causes Pipes to Burst?

Pipes bursting can be a major source of stress and frustration for homeowners. Unfortunately, pipes burst due to a variety of causes, ranging from extreme weather conditions to poor plumbing maintenance or installation. In order to prevent pipe bursts in the future, it is important to understand some of the common reasons why pipes burst so you can take proactive measures to protect your home and its plumbing system. 

Here are some of the most common causes of pipe bursts:

  • Extreme temperatures: When water inside a pipe freezes, it expands and causes pressure to build up, which can lead to a pipe burst. Similarly, when temperatures rise too high during the summer months, it can cause pipes to expand and place undue strain on them. 
  • Old plumbing systems: Pipes that are old or poorly installed may start leaking due to wear and tear over time. Corrosion is another common issue with older plumbing systems, as well as tree root intrusion near underground pipes in your yard. 
  • Clogs: If a clog develops within a pipe that’s not properly maintained or serviced regularly, it will put added stress on the system as more water tries to pass through. The pressure build-up can eventually cause a pipe burst. 

No matter how your pipe has burst, it's vital to get in touch with your insurance provider right away to file a claim. But even though they are supposed to help you, they may cause an even greater headache than the burst pipe itself. This is why it’s important to have experienced attorneys from Crawford Law review and protect your rights when dealing with insurers or other parties who may be responsible for your losses.
