Major Causes of Sewer & Drain Damage

Many factors can contribute to a blockage in sewer drains, which can lead to costly backup in toilets and sinks.

Major causes of sewer backups:

  • Aging sewage lines that have been ignored by municipalities
  • Blockage by debris, roots, and other buildup
  • Incorrectly designed and constructed sewage systems

Our law firm has found that the major culprit in many sewage backups in cities like Baton Rouge is faulty design and construction by the city. If this is the case for you, you could be entitled to compensation for all of your losses from the city. Contact our sewage backup lawyer today to discuss the details of your situation!
