Water leaks from a pipe can start off small and then grow larger until your home has catastrophic damage, including mold and other health hazards. If your insurance company is refusing to pay your home insurance claim or has offered you too little in compensation, contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 for a free consultation. We may be able to help you recover your property losses.
Signs of Pipe Leaks
Some pipe leaks start out slow due to slow corrosion of the pipe. The longer the leak remains unattended and unrepaired, the greater the losses can become. As a homeowner, always look for signs of pipe leaks in your home, including the following:
- Any wood materials that have rotted, warped, or split
- Drywall that appears wet, swollen, or warped in any way
- Fungus or mold in the home on walls or floors
- Broken or raised tiles on the floors
- Discoloration of walls, floors, or carpets
- Stains on any part of your property
- Drains or sewers that appear slow or backed up
- Foul smells
- An increased infestation of rodents or insects
If you believe you have found a pipe leak in your plumbing system, contact your insurance company immediately and call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 to help with your next steps.
Pipe Leak Insurance Claims and Property Losses
Many insurance companies are reticent to provide full compensation for water losses suffered from a leaking pipe, replacement of damaged pipes, or additional issues that may have occurred, such as mold. While your homeowners policy likely covers damage caused by burst or leaking pipes, there may be exclusions related to the presence of mold or flooding due to natural events. Our team can help you review your insurance policies and hold the insurance company accountable for compensating you for your covered losses.

It Is Important to Act Quickly
Burst or leaking pipes can cause significant damage to your home, which is why it is important to act quickly once water damage is discovered. The necessary repairs can become a point of contention between a homeowner and an insurance company. Your insurer may send an auditor to ascertain your losses and determine what repairs truly need to be made. Our team can help you review the evidence of the damage to your home and protect your right to pursue compensation for your covered losses as established in your policy.
