Water damage can occur as a result of a variety of different types of events, including a hurricane, flood or pipe burst. It is most commonly seen at a widespread level as a result of floods, hurricanes or the floods that are a result of hurricanes hitting coastal areas. In addition, when a pipe bursts, it can cause a significant amount of water damage. What people don’t always realize is that there can be a lot more water damage below the surface than is obvious, which can cause structural damage or the build up of mold. This type of damage can be extremely expensive to repair, as it involves tearing up walls in order to look for mold or other damage. However, if your insurance policy covers this type of repair then your insurance company has no excuse to unfairly reject your payment or delay your payment unnecessarily.
These actions are examples of bad faith dealings, which can give you legal grounds to pursue full payment on your claims in a timely fashion.
