Water damage claims are one of the most common types of property claims, but can be one of the most difficult to settle. These types of claims can be extremely costly for insurance agencies. Therefore, policyholders often find themselves dealing with unnecessary hassles to claim what is rightfully owed.

Our highly skilled and qualified staff is here to help navigate your insurance policies, determine if your claim will be accepted or denied and expedite the entire claim process.

Determining the factors that lead to water damage is one of the challenges policyholders may encounter. When filing your Pittsburgh water damage claim, it is important that you are aware of the following:
Type of Policy – Depending on your policy, water and flood damage are considered two different events. In some cases, choosing the wrong classification can determine if you are covered or not. Often, flood damage caused by natural disasters is not covered through your standard policy and may only be covered under the National Insurance Flood Program. When filing your Pittsburgh water damage claim, it is crucial that you understand the language in your policy or consult a public adjuster, like Pfister Adjusting, Inc., to review.
Cause of Damage (Sudden vs. Gradual) – A shocking amount of damage can be realized in a short amount of time. In addition, a slow undetected leak can result in even greater damage and much financial loss. Sudden, accidental damages caused by such things as broken appliances, frozen pipes, sink or tub overflows, most often are covered. Claims for gradual or chronic leaks that lead to water damage are often denied or underpaid due to the insurance company classifying it as neglect on the part of the policyholder.

"As I hired Pfister Adjusting, Inc. I would not have believed the future results. He filed the claim for me, and did all the work. Several contractors told me it wouldn't be covered.
We highly recommend Pfister Adjusting, Inc. After hurricane Irma, we tried to work with our insurance company for our claim. Dealing with our insurance company was very stressful and we were making no progress with them.
