FOX5 San Diego Interview On 2018 North Park Water Main Break

I don’t believe in accidents.   – Pablo Picasso

A water main break has flooded the streets of North Park again.

FOX5 San Diego anchor Jenn Karlman interviewed Evan about practical steps and liability.

 

What to do after the 2018 North Park water main break?

First, film your property damage using your phone.

Second, make a claim with your insurance company: renters, homeowners, condo, or auto. Your auto insurance should cover any flood damage to your auto. Understand, however, that your renters, homeowners, and condo insurance will not. Here’s a blog post explaining why flood is not covered: https://www.evanwalkerlaw.com/blog/el-nino-understanding-your-homeowners-policy/

Third, file a government claim against the City of San Diego. Read this blog for more info: https://www.evanwalkerlaw.com/blog/how-to-file-claim-against-san-diego/

Who is responsible for the 2018 North Park water main break?

If the North Park water main was maintained by the City of San Diego, you should bring a claim against the City of San Diego. This has happened before.

Victims of the flood should understand the concept of inverse condemnation. Here’s a blog with that info: https://www.evanwalkerlaw.com/blog/what-is-inverse-condemnation-in-california/
