Blasting Damage Claims in Florida
Property damage caused by nearby blasting sites is a common problem for home and business owners throughout Florida. Explosives are used in many construction sites, including quarries, roadwork, sewer, and water lines. These blasts send vibrations through the ground and the air that can cause damage to properties that are miles away.
Home and business property insurance policies should legally cover property damages caused by blasting. However, many claims are denied because they can be difficult to prove. It is imperative to contact a public adjuster to assess the damage before the insurance company tries to deny your claim.
How to Check for Blasting Damage
Quarry mining is a billion-dollar industry in the State of Florida. Unfortunately, these quarries are located in closer proximity to properties than is safe. Vibrations from blasting can result in extensive damage to the construction of a home or business.
Signs of Blasting Damage Include:
- Cracks in Walls
- Cracks in Tile Flooring and Roof
- Water Leaks
- Foundation Damage
- Fractures to the Ceiling
- Basement Damage
Contacting a public adjuster to assess the damage is the best way to determine that blasting is to blame for these damages.
