Florida Plumbing and Pipe Damage Claims Attorneys
Pipe damage and plumbing issues can lead to devastating property damage. Whether your entire property or a specific area in your home has been affected, such damage represents a major issue that needs to be corrected – and the process is not only extremely time consuming but also extremely costly. If your home or other property has suffered the effects of plumbing or pipe damage, you need the compensation to which you are entitled to make the necessary repairs and move forward with your life. Fortunately, a dedicated Panama City plumbing and pipe damage claims attorney can help you with that.
The Damage Done
A plumbing leak or burst pipe can do extensive damage to your home or property. Even a slow leak that goes unnoticed can lead to overwhelming damage. The first order of business is removing any standing water and drying out – or even replacing – the damaged walls, floors, and fixtures. This is not to mention your damaged – and sometimes ruined – personal possessions. When these possessions have sentimental value, such as pictures and keepsakes, they can be irreplaceable. There is also the matter of going in and repairing or replacing the pipes themselves, which can be exceptionally costly because they are typically housed within walls and flooring. All told, the physical toll and repair expense associated with plumbing and pipe damage can be astronomical.
In addition to the expense of repairs and replacement, there is the issue of mold. Once water seeps into certain areas of your home, it can be especially difficult to remove and completely dry out, which can lead to mold problems. All of the following apply:
- Mold is unsightly.
- Mold is difficult and costly to remove.
- Mold is malodorous.
- When left unchecked, mold can do serious structural damage.
- Mold can lead to health problems (especially for people with respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies).
If the damage caused by your pipes and/or plumbing is extensive, you may need to move out temporarily, which only serves to increase the expense.
Isn’t That What Insurance Is For?
While it’s true that you have insurance for the very purpose of addressing issues such as these, this does not mean that the compensation you need and to which you are entitled will be immediately forthcoming. The fact is that insurance companies are for-profit businesses that are naturally invested in maximizing those profits, which can translate to minimal settlement offers, delayed claims processes, and outright claims denials.
