A property owner’s worst nightmare is to walk into their home to find themselves ankle deep in water thanks to a burst pipe or faulty plumbing system. Water can cause devastating damage, ruining your personal belongings and even threatening a building’s structural integrity.
Your homeowner’s insurance may cover some of the damage depending on the type of policy you have. However, if your claim is denied or your insurance company does not offer enough payment to cover your water losses, you need the help of a reputable water damage lawyer.

Common Causes of Water Loss
A homeowner can experience water loss from many sources. Some of the most common causes can include:
- Burst pipes
- Faulty plumbing
- Cracked or deteriorated drain lines
- Water heater explosion
- Roof leaks
- Toilet supply leaks
- Overflowing washing machine
- Broken or leaking air conditioning unit
- Sewage backups
Water damage can also result from natural causes like a flood or hurricane, though that type of loss may be covered differently under your insurance.

What to do After Water Damage
If your home or property has been ravaged by water, you should cut off the source of water as soon as possible. Do what you can to remove standing water and begin drying out your house. Failing to take remedial steps can negatively impact your insurance claim and make it look like you contributed to your losses.
You should make sure to take careful notes and photos of all of the water loss throughout your property, carefully documenting all damaged property and any replacement values.
If you need to make any immediate repairs, make sure to document the before and after and keep all receipts from your transactions. You should however, refrain from making any significant repairs without inspection from your insurance adjuster.
