Cast Iron Pipe Insurance Claims

The Orlando based Woodward Law Firm assists homeowners, business owners and condominium associations, and their representatives, to recover benefits on plumbing and cast iron pipe insurance claims in Central Florida and throughout the State of Florida.


Before 1975, many homes and buildings were built with cast iron plumbing systems.  Initially, it was believed that the estimated life span of a typical cast iron plumbing system was 50-75 years, but in Florida’s humidity and climate, these sytems can breakdown in only 20 years.  Cast iron plumbing damage can result in sewage back-ups, water damage, vermin and insect infestations, water contamination, and other health issues.  Your observations of water damage on rugs, walls, ceilings, wood floor, broken and discolored floor tiles/grout, slow drains, unpleasant odors, and insect infestation are signs of cast iron pipe damage.


Damaged cast iron plumbing should be replaced as soon as possible.  However, it is very expensive to replace cast iron pipes because they are buried and difficult to access.  In many cases, the cost to access the cast iron pipes that need to be replaced is recoverable from your property insurance company.  If the insurance company refuses to pay the full cost to access all of the cast iron pipes, then you should consult with an experience insurance lawyer.  Orlando lawyer, Hew Woodward, can explain the exclusions and limits that the insurance company might want to use to avoid or reduce the amount you receive on your cast iron pipe claim.

The Woodward Law Firm will evaluate your case and advise you about your rights, and assist you in gathering the necessary documents and prove your cast iron pipe insurance claim.  Whether in the courtroom or during settlement negotiations, The Woodward Law Firm can help you obtain a full and fair payment on cast iron pipe insurance claims.

The initial consultation is free and you will pay no attorney fees unless we win or settle your case.  In most cases, we can make the insurance company pay all attorney fees and costs.

I have a great deal of respect and admiration for Hew. I found Hew to be very reliable, very dependable, very thoughtful. If he said he was going to do something, he would do it. And he could do what needed to be done to win our cases against the insurance companies.

Mr. Woodward took charge of our claim and we didn’t have to lift a finger. Hew personally handled everything for us and we did not have to deal with anyone at the insurance company. For the record, Hew got the claim settled and we got our home fixed. We feel personally grateful for his representation, and will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who has a similar insurance claim issue. Thanks again!

Kind regards, Anne.
