Owning a home requires regular upkeep and maintenance, from cleaning out gutters to replacing HVAC filters. But what happens when the home you’ve worked so hard to take care of sustains severe property damage because of a problem you can’t even see?
Sadly, this scenario is a reality for many homeowners in the U.S. with homes built before 1975. The culprit behind the damage: cast iron pipe plumbing systems that are prematurely failing due to corrosion. Worse yet, insurance companies make it difficult for homeowners struggling with bad cast iron pipes to get the compensation they need to replace the pipes and repair the damage done to their property. Insurance companies often wrongfully deny or underpay claims, blaming the damage caused by the cast iron pipes on common “wear and tear.”
That isn’t right. That’s why the attorneys at Morgan & Morgan’s Insurance Recovery Group are helping homeowners fight back against insurance companies acting in bad faith. We’ve helped thousands of homeowners recover the compensation they need.
