Is Your Mold Damage Covered in Your Insurance?

The intricacies of homeowner insurance policies for mold damage in Denver can be as complicated as addressing the mold issue itself. The typical homeowner’s insurance policy may include clauses that cover mold damage, but often these are circumscribed by fine print and limitations.

For instance, if the mold results from a covered peril, such as a pipe burst, the policy might provide coverage. Conversely, if the damage can be attributed to maintenance issues, such as ongoing humidity or unresolved leaks, the insurance company may deny the claim.

The key to determining coverage lies in the immediate and informed response by the homeowner and the precise interpretation of the policy. This is where our mold damage claims lawyers at The Morgan Law Group can be instrumental. Their skill in interpreting policy language and understanding the nuances of Denver mold damage claims can help you navigate through the often murky waters of Denver mold damage insurance claims.

Challenges to Mold Damage Insurance Claims

To have a successful mold damage insurance claim in Denver is laden with potential roadblocks. Homeowners may find themselves in a web of policy exclusions and stringent conditions set by insurers.

One of the primary challenges is the insurance industry’s approach to mold claims, which is typically one of cautious scrutiny. Insurance companies may explicitly exclude mold damage caused by “preventable situations,” including long-standing leaks or continuous exposure to humidity, which are deemed as maintenance issues rather than covered perils.

The differentiation between “sudden and accidental damage” and “ongoing and gradual damage” is another major hurdle for claimants. Insurance companies often resist claims by arguing that the damage was not sudden, which is a requirement for many policies to respond. This can be a highly subjective area and a fertile ground for dispute, as what appears to be sudden to a policyholder may be interpreted as gradual by an insurer.

Moreover, the cause of the mold itself comes under intense inspection. If the mold results from a non-covered peril, such as “flooding” (which is usually covered under a separate flood insurance policy), the homeowner may find their claim denied.

Insurers might also set coverage limits for mold-related damages that are significantly lower than the actual cost of remediation and repair. These limits often do not reflect the extensive work needed to fully address and remediate the mold issue, leaving homeowners to cover the difference out of pocket.

To navigate these complexities, our Denver mold damage lawyers at The Morgan Law Group are essential.
