Householders – protection for sewer line crushed by giant car in driveway

By | October 24, 2018

I am in TN and Liberty Mutual is my service. We had a sewer line break below our driveway on account of a heavy truck parking there (bucket truck used for tree removing). On account of the road working below the driveway, the associated fee to restore it’s bigger even than a typical sewer line alternative. From what I can inform, extra typical causes for sewer line failure comparable to roots rising via it, and many others would usually not be lined. I’m questioning if since this appears to have been attributable to a selected motion (weight of a car parked over it) this may doubtless be lined? I’m cautious of submitting a declare if it is going to be denied AND probably enhance our charges. We anticipate the ultimate price to be round $10okay which is 5x our deductible. We’re additionally exploring whether or not the tree service we used (proprietor and operator of the bucket truck) has legal responsibility right here and/or insurance coverage which can cowl this as an alternative. submitted by /u/xkrysis [link] [comments]
