Sewer Backups – Lawyers in Phoenix, Arizona

Many Americans have dealt with damaged property as a result of sewer backups or flooding. If the city has flooded your house with sewage, you are not alone.

Did you know that every year sewer backups cause damage to around 11 million households?

Sewer blockages are frequently unexpected and always a disaster. At best, the backup necessitates painful cleanup and, in some cases, costly damage.

The good news is, in many cases, you can receive compensation for the following:

  • 1. Harm to the property;
  • 2. Loss of use of the property; and
  • 3. Discomfort and annoyance

Plus, you could be dealing with a lot more than a flooded house or basement if you run into this issue because unsanitary water can make you and your loved ones very sick.

The best thing you can do when dealing with sewage leaks is contact experienced lawyers who can assist you with damage claims and expenses and get you the help you need – which is where Phillips Law Group comes in.

    Who Is at Risk?

    If you’re dealing with a sewer system backup or leaks, you’re not alone; according to data analytics and risk assessment firm Verisk and The Civil Engineering Research Foundation, the rate of sewer backup incidents is increasing by 3 percent annually.

    Have a question about a potential case?

    Who Is at Fault?

    Many homeowners may not know that they are usually responsible for the maintenance and repair of the pipeline between their city’s sewer main and their building.

    This pipeline, known as the sewer lateral, is generally owned and maintained by the property owner and is their responsibility. But what if the issue arose because of a problem in the city’s sewer system?

    The city could try to claim they are not responsible for a sewer problem that impacted your home if there isn’t sufficient evidence they neglected the sewer system they maintain and caused a blockage that impacted your sewer lateral and system.

    Have a question about a potential case?

    Who Is Going To Pay for the Damage?

    Possibly no one if action is not taken to investigate who is responsible and properly make a claim for damages. If the problem is with the city’s sewer line, the city should pay.

    But many cities and municipalities attempt to shift responsibility onto homeowners. With proper legal representation, the city can be forced to pay when it is responsible. If the problem is with your lines, the city will not be responsible.

    Have a question about a potential case?

    How Do I Know Who Is Responsible for the Damages?

    You cannot rely on the city’s representatives to properly diagnose the problem. You need to hire an expert plumber who will inspect the pipes, then find the location and cause of the damage.

    We have the experience with experts, the money, and the ability to litigate your claims and obtain compensation for your loss, with no up-front expenses to you.

    Who Can Seek Legal Action?

    Anyone who can prove their property has been damaged by a sewage backup or sewage leaks — or who suffered injuries or health problems thanks to a backup, leaks, or a faulty sewer system — may be entitled to compensation for their damages and injuries.

    At Phillips Law Group, we can give you a free consultation to determine how we can help you.

    Have a question about a potential case?

    How Long Do I Have To Make a Claim?

    You must act quickly. There are deadlines to file a claim and a lawsuit. These deadlines may vary depending on where are located.

    If you fail to timely meet the deadlines, your ability to receive compensation will be lost.

    Have a question about a potential case?

    What Are Sewer Leaks or Backups Caused By?

    Some sources of sewer backup or leaks include:

    • A main sewer line getting blocked
    • Worn-out sewer systems that have not been properly maintained or repaired and are therefore no longer able to function correctly
    • Tree roots causing blockages and sewage leaks after damaging pipes in sewer systems
    • Inadequate drainage structures

    Have a question about a potential case?

    What Should Someone Who Is Dealing With Sewer Damage Do?

    If you’re dealing with sewage backups, flooding, leaks, and other sewer-related damages, the best thing you can do is determine whether it’s appropriate to take legal action to get the damage — to your property, health, and more — covered with the help of experienced attorneys like those at Phillips Law Group.

    Have a question about a potential case?

    When Should You Take Action?

    You should take action as a homeowner if you notice any sort of sewer backup or damage to your property that you think is caused by a sewer blockage. This can include damage inside a building or on your lawn.

    For instance, if you notice water or sewage coming in through floor drains, your basement, bathroom fixtures, sinks and tubs, and more, that’s a sign that you’re dealing with a major issue in your sewer system.

    In such cases, you should take pictures of water and sewage in your home and of the residue and damage left after it recedes. Any damaged items should also be documented to establish proof and responsibility if legal action is necessary.

    Why You Should Get Help ASAP

    Sewer backups can cause tens of thousands of dollars of damage. And chances are, the entity responsible for the sewer system you connect to at your home or business is not going to want to take responsibility for that, and neither will your home insurance provider.

    At Phillips Law Group, we can help you get assistance with these claims starting from the day you contact us and we establish that you have an eligible claim. The longer you wait, the more damage that may be done to your health and property, and the longer you’ll be delayed in getting help.
