Water Damage Disputes

Fisher Scoggins Waters' team has successfully acted for commercial clients across the country in flood damage claims, insurance indemnity disputes and recovery actions following escapes of water.

Burst water pipes and river banks are the most common, but often water damage is caused by less dramatic failures, such as poor property maintenance, defective workmanship and defective products.

Our Experience 

Current water damage claims includes:

  • Warehouses
  • Factories
  • High Street retailers
  • Office blocks
  • Hotels
  • Residential
  • Other Commercial premises

Activated sprinklers can cause catastrophic losses to computer software and hardware, stock, plant and machinery damage, all of which are vital components which allow continued commercial trading.

Business Interruption Claims 

We advise on business interruption coverage. For situations such as those seen in Cumbria and more recently in the Thames Valley where towns were entirely closed due to flood water, questions are raised as to coverage. We can advise you on coverage issues.

In business interruption losses which flow from an insured peril (i.e. flood) accurate measurement of loss sustained can be one of the most complicated and contentious elements of a claim to measure and settle. We instruct and work with forensic accountants to analyse initial business interruption loss reserves, calculating actual loss sustained, loss of production and/or sales, advise on mitigation and expediting expenses.

Insurance Dispute Solicitors 

Our team has expertise in relation to property policies covering damage to property caused by named perils and understand issues arising under such policies, including policy construction and the full range of conditions (conditions precedent) and policy exceptions, for example, notification, wilful default and fraudulent claims.
