Insurance Question from Huntsville, AL
Asked on 10/03/2018
Proximate cause I have further questions on my example: There is water damage in my home due to burst pipe. The cause of burst is wear and tear which is an excluded peril of my property insurance. I would like to know whether the water damage to the wooden floor of my home is cover under my property insurance or not.Question:1. What is the proximate cause of the wooden floor damage? (I think that the proximate cause is wear and tear. It is because wear & tear -> pipe bursting->flooding -> floor damage.Is it correct?)2. If the proximate cause of floor damage is â€œwear & tearâ€, why the household policy will cover the repair cost of the floor damage?Thanks

why would you NOT want the insurance company to pay for the repairs?
