Factors Affecting Water Damage Claims

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:Water Damage Claims Pittsburgh

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.
