Water damage caused by a burst pipe can devastate your home or commercial property, ruining floors, cabinets, and furniture, making your home, rental property, condominium or business unusable and costing thousand of dollars to make right. This is a property insurance claim not covered by flood insurance, which is a separate policy.
Insurance claims for damage caused by a burst pipe can present very complex legal issues. Our staff of attorneys stand ready and willing to assist home and commercial property owners with claims resulting from water damage.
Take photographs or videotape of the damage.
Make temporary repairs – save receipts for any materials that you purchase. Don’t make extensive permanent repairs until after the claims adjuster has been to your property and assessed the damage.
Call your insurance agent or company to report the damage.
In the case of your home, save receipts for additional living expenses – the minimum amount available to pay for such expenses is generally equal to 20% of the insurance coverage.
Prepare for the adjuster’s visit.
Be sure to keep copies of lists and other documents that you submit to your insurance company and any paper work that the insurance company gives to you.

We can help people with these water damage insurance disputes as well.
