Tred R. Eyerly - Insurance Law Hawaii

The Eleventh Circuit, following Florida law, reversed the district court's granting of summary judgment to the insurer for water damage caused by a collapse in the dwelling's plumbing system. Cameron v. Scottsdale Ins. Co., 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 9800 (11th Cir. April 16, 2018).

A pipe in the plumbing system of the insureds' dwelling collapsed, causing water damage to the interior and necessitating additional damage to access and repair the plumbing. The cause of the plumbing problem was the age of the plumbing system that carried wastewater out of the building.
