Water Damage Claim Attorneys in New Orleans

Handling Bad Faith Insurance Claims

Water damage insurance claims are one of the most common types of insurance claims filed by homeowners and businesses. Claims involving water damage can be confusing because most insurance policies distinguish damage caused by water from the home versus flood water.

Water damage claims can arise as a result of:

  • Leaky roof
  • Broken pipe
  • Appliance leaks
  • Sewage backups
  • Frozen pipes
  • Clogged toilets

Policies are very specific regarding the type of water damage that is covered. The cause of the water damage should be clearly defined and the extent of the damage should be thoroughly investigated. It is important to consult your insurance policy and talk to an attorney to guide you through the claims process. Call LaHatte Law for an experienced New Orleans water damage claim lawyer with extensive experience representing policyholders in a wide range of property insurance claims.
