DeLand, Daytona Beach and Volusia County Water Damage Claims
Water damage can occur due to a leaking roof, malfunctioning appliance, burst pipe, or natural disaster. Whatever the cause, you need to repair the damage and prevent further problems. Unfortunately, your insurance company might very well deny your claim. We can help fight for your rights.
Insurance Companies and Water Damage Claims
When you file a water damage claim with your insurance company, you need to be very clear about the cause and extent of the damage. Your policy might not cover all types of water damage, and the company could deny your claim if you do not clearly show that the damage occurred due to a covered cause.
Typically, if damage is caused by water that has been on the ground, your homeowner’s policy will not cover the damage because it is considered flood damage. Homeowners in Daytona Beach and throughout Volusia County need separate flood insurance policies to cover flood damage.
Also, if water in your home leads to additional problems, such as mold, decay, ruined appliances or other items, and structural damage, your insurance policy might not cover repair or replacement costs. In such cases, seeking the help of a homeowners’ insurance attorney with experience in handling water damage claims cases is crucial to getting the insurance benefits you need.
