Sprinkler system failures that occur in commercial properties and even in some newer residential properties can cause extensive damage to the building and its contents. If these water damage claims are not adjusted quickly and accurately by the insurance company, the property owner may be forced into either making inadequate and incomplete repairs as a result of the carrier’s underpayment, or engaging in a costly and time-consuming battle against the insurance company, its attorneys, and defense experts.
The pressure to take what the insurance company offers can be overwhelming for both homeowners and business owners. The insurance companies and their adjusters know this all too well. If you are being pressured to settle your water damage property claim for an amount that you believe to be inadequate, you may consider seeking the advice and assistance of a qualified Dallas property insurance lawyer. A sprinkler system leak or failure often results from frozen pipes that burst, causing the interior of the structure or building to flood. Most insurance policies have specific requirements concerning the maintenance and care of property sprinkler systems that can limit and even eliminate coverage.
