Causes of Water Damage
Saving parts after a loss could mean money in your pocket.
If water damage strikes your home, defective parts or a faulty installation or repairs could be the cause. If so, Claim Services will work to hold any negligent parties responsible. Successful recovery from the negligent party may result in a refund of a portion or all of your deductible.
Be sure to save the parts as well as product manuals, purchase receipts and any applicable repair/installation invoices for your Claims representative.
Defective items could include (but are not limited to):
- Washing machines
- Water heaters
- Toilet valve assemblies
- Ice maker lines
- Water supply lines for plumbing or appliances.
Note: This scenario is only an example and is not a promise to pay. All claims are handled based on the facts of the loss, the applicable policy language and applicable state law. All factors are taken into consideration prior to payments being issued.
