How Do I File a Third-Party Property Damage Claim in New York State?

Recovering your damaged or destroyed property is already stressful, but if the damage was caused by a hazard posed by a neighboring property, this situation gets even more complicated. This is because the other party’s insurance company, will likely not cover the damages even though the accident was due to no fault of your own. And if your own insurance company also does not cover your loss, your best option is to file a third-party property damage claim. Follow along to discover how one of the proficient New York third party claim attorneys at The Law Office of Craig A. Blumberg can work on your behalf to retain the compensation that you are entitled to.

What are the common types of third-party property damage claims in New York state?

If you received property damage from a neighboring property, you may need to file a third-party claim. Many instances give cause to this legal pursuit, and common examples are as follows:

  • A fire originated on a neighboring property and spread to your property.
  • Water damage, caused by runoff from a broken pipe or faulty plumbing, that originated on a neighboring property and spread to your property.
  • Construction is conducted on a neighboring property and ends up damaging your property.
  • Fallen objects, such as trees, that originated on a neighboring property and fell across property lines.

Under what circumstances should I file a third-party property damage claim in New York state?

First and foremost, you should seek damages from your insurance company. With this, you should submit photos of the property damage itself, along with photos of your property before the accident to clearly illustrate how the accident has damaged your property. It is important to note that you should not begin repairs or cleaning up damages before you fully documented the damages.

If you, later on, discover that your insurance policy does not cover the full cost of the damage to your property, then you can resort to filing a third-party property damage claim. To get started, you should retain the services of one of the talented New York property damage attorneys as immediately as possible.
