Cast Iron Pipes Can Lead To Catastrophic Damage
Contact Palm Beach County Cast Iron Pipe Law Firm, Fagnano Law, P.A.
If your home was built before 1975 chances are it has cast iron pipes. Builders underestimated the the harsh elements that come along with living in sunny Florida. Originally given a life expectancy of 50 to 75 years, many systems began corroding after 25 years. These failing pipes can lead to major damage in your home. The pipes begin to rust and crumble causing water to leak out.
Many insurance companies try to deny these claims calling it “normal wear and tear.” You do not have to accept that denial. An experienced attorney can seek all legal remedies available to the homeowner. Often, the insurance company will reevaluate their denial after the hiring of an attorney. If they don’t a lawsuit can be filed and the matter can be litigated. Bottom line, don’t let the insurance company bully you. Contact Fagnano Law, P.A. and let us fight for you.
