Unexpected water damage from a leaking pipe, overflowing appliance, or storm damage to a roof, can lead to costly damage in a very short amount of time. There are several other ways water damage can happen, and it is important to contact a knowledgeable attorney quickly after water damage occurs. Insurance policies are difficult to read and contain exclusions that are not specific or can be tricky to understand. Often times, insurance companies will incorrectly deny part or all of a claim.
There are also situations where an insurance company makes a payment but the payment is not enough to properly repair the damage. An experienced law firm can help to apply the law and the policy terms to prove that a claim should be paid, and assist in obtaining an estimate that accurately reflects the amount of damage caused by a water loss.
If you have questions regarding a possible water claim, please contact the attorneys at Smith, Kling & Thompson, P.A. for a free consultation.
