Does Your Water Damage Insurance Cover You?

It’s devastating to see first-hand that your property or your home have been damaged or destroyed from a leak you didn’t know about or mold that grew after old water damage. In the vast majority of cases, your property got damaged from something totally out of your control. Fortunately, most policies cover damage where the cause was “sudden and accidental.” This includes water damage from burst pipes, sink or tub overflow, sewage or toilet backups and water intrusion from breaches in a roof or window.
Whether your property was damaged suddenly from a storm or flood or over time from mold, mildew or decay, it’s enough to ruin your day. You might not even suspect a problem until it’s too late. 
Most people file water damage claims expecting full coverage, but the reality is that many are unjustly or incorrectly underpaid or even outright denied. It’s fairly common for insurance adjusters to misinterpret a policy and deny a claim based solely on a misunderstanding over the policy’s coverage. Always get a second opinion from a trusted, experienced adjuster if your insurance company denies your claim.
