Water damage is one of the most common reasons people make claims on their home insurance. Burst pipes, leaky appliances and flooded basements often lead people to discover the details of their home insurance policies. “Water damage and homeowners policies can be a volatile issue in many ways,” says Don Griffin, vice president of personal lines at the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, a trade group.
