Who May Be Responsible for Your Tallahassee Water Intrusion Damages
Water intrusion can be complex, because Mother Nature may be to blame or you might not know who is at fault. This is why we strongly recommend working with a Tallahassee water intrusion damage lawyer who understands Florida insurance laws and can fight to recover the losses you deserve.
In most cases, an insurance company, not an individual, will pay for your property damage. Depending on the details of your claim, we may pursue compensation from the following parties:
Your Homeowner’s or Renter’s Insurance
In many cases, homeowner’s or renter’s insurance will cover the losses you have experienced. You may recover personal property losses, the cost of repairs if you own, and the cost to make other living arrangements if you cannot live in your home. However, most standard policies do not cover flooding damage.
If you rent your property, there are some cases where your landlord may be responsible for your lost personal possessions or professional losses. We recommend speaking to a lawyer to determine if your landlord is liable in your situation.
A City or State Agency
A city or municipality may be held responsible for your damages if one of their workers or property they manage caused the damage. For example, if a city worker busted a city water line, resulting in water intrusion damage to your home, they might be held liable.
A Construction Company or Other Party
The builder or contractor who built or repaired the property may be held liable if their work was performed improperly, resulting in water intrusion damage to your property.
Losses You May Recover in a Tallahassee Water Intrusion Claim
Water intrusion can quickly cause thousands of dollars in property damage. The amount you are eligible to recover in your Tallahassee water intrusion damage claim will vary based on who was at fault, the severity of your losses, what your policy’s deductible is, and whether or not the policy even has a deductible.
However, in many Tallahassee water damage cases, you can expect to recover the following losses:
- The cost to repair or replace your home or business
- The loss of personal property, such as clothing, books, and furniture
- The cost of staying in another location if your home is uninhabitable
- The loss of income if your business is unable to open
- Other incidentals, such as the cost to secure your property after the damage
