In Florida, burst pipes can be very common especially in older homes and buildings with weaker infrastructure. Pipes usually burst for one of three reasons: they are old, damage caused high water pressure in the piping, or just using the wrong pipes for what you need. Burst pipes can cause extreme water damage to your property and can cause mold in many cases. The pipes bursting can cause problems throughout the property especially if it starts building up water and is not stopped immediately if your home or property ruins a kitchen, walls, floors, or personal belongings. If you have or would like to file a lawsuit against your property insurance provider about a burst pipe claim that was denied or not paid in full, please contact Flat Fee Legal Service.
