Water Damage/Plumbing Claims

Understanding Plumbing Leak Claims

Plumbing leaks are among the top 10 insurance claims. These leaks include:

  • Frozen Pipe Burst & Ice Dams

  • Drain Pipe Leaks

  • Water Pipe Leaks, pipe breaks, burst pipes

  • Toilet Overflows

  • Tub Overflows

  • Water Heater Leaks

  • A/C Condensing Line Leak

  • Leaky Appliances


Remember that even the smallest leak can cause mold and other significant personal property damage. Hiring a professional to handle this claim can make the difference between a minimal or adequate settlement to repair your damage due to coverage complications and the public adjusters ability to help manage costly dry-out charges.

Water damage from plumbing leaks seldom makes the headlines, but the damages can and often are catastrophic. Our firm has been involved in many claims over the years where the entire inside of buildings and homes have been destroyed due to water leaks, many of which are sudden, with others that may occur over time due to absent property owners.

Please know that if you hire a mitigation contracting service, that you will be asked to sign an Assignment of Benefits (AOB). Unfortunately, this will allow them to directly bill your insurance company and you will not be able to control the cost/payment at that point. With this being said, know that any money paid for this service will be takin out of your policy limits and you will have less money from your budget to repair your loss.
