Did you know that one of the most common reasons for households to make an insurance claim is water damage? But despite this, many claims for water damage end up rejected. Often, homeowners make the mistake of waiting to get the water removed before they report their claim to the insurance agent. But before you even think about cleaning up, you should be calling your insurance agent straight away.

So, what happens if your claim for water damage is denied? There are some steps you can take:

●     Make sure you ask for a full explanation and the exact wording from your policy that excludes your claim from being covered.

●     Find out who made the decision to deny the claim.

●     Consider requesting a second opinion on your claim.

●     File a complaint or seek outside advice if you feel that your insurance claim was wrongfully denied or handled incorrectly.
