Helping Clients with Water Damage Insurance Claims Throughout Louisiana
If you live in Louisiana, you likely know that water can cause devastating damage to your home or business. When you make an insurance claim, you may be surprised how complex and frustrating the process may be. Insurance policies are highly specific when it comes to coverage for water damage. For example, your insurer may separate water damage from flood damage from other types of water damage, meaning you will need to make a claim under a separate flood policy if the damage occurred due to water that started on the ground. On the other hand, water damage that may be covered may stem from:
- Roof leaks
- Broken pipes
- Sewage backups
- Appliance leaks
- Clogged toilets
Water damage can quickly cause dangerous conditions in your home or office, such as mold and decay. Mold can cause a number of serious health issues, and decay can result in termites, carpenter ants, and costly repairs. If you’re dealing with water damage, it is important that you speak with an experienced insurance claim attorney about your case right away.
