Water Damage Claims
Since insurance policies do not cover all types of water damage, claims have to be very specific in describing the cause and extent of 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.
In general, damage from water that has been on the ground is considered flood damage and is not covered by your homeowner’s insurance. Homeowners throughout Florida are encouraged to have separate flood insurance policies to cover flood damage.
However, even when damage occurs from situations covered by your policy, you could run into problems with your water damage claim. For example, if water in your home causes additional damage, such as mold, structural damage, or ruined appliances or other items, your insurance company might deny your claim for repair or replacement costs. Also, if water has been in your house for 14 days or more, your insurance company can deny your claim on the basis of excluding damage from water that has been there for so long.
In such cases, getting help from a homeowners’ insurance attorney with experience in handling water damage claims cases is crucial to getting the insurance benefits you need.
