What should I do if I find a broken pipe in my home? Will my insurance company pay for the repair and the damages?

However, if you have a Tampa Bay public adjuster on your side, you can heave a sigh of relief. Let’s see how!

Standard homeowner’s insurance policies cover a whole host of perils which include flooding from broken pipes. It is important to check if broken drain pipes are also included under your insurance policy coverage. However, when you file a claim, your insurance company will first try to pass this off as negligence on your part so they can deny your claim. You will have to prove that the breaking of the pipe was sudden and that the water leak was not gradual – these things are best left to a public adjuster like Experienced Public Adjusters.
