Hello everybody. My life has been turned upside down. My house is slopped downwards so when a water main broke near my home (it is owned by the city), all the water collected at my house and flooded my home and damaged carpets, living room, walls, etc. I tried asking the city for the money for all the repairs but they only offered me very little. no where near the costs of reapir. Are they liable and can a lawyer sue them for me?I mean the water main is owned by the city, not the home. I also contacted my insurance and they said because it was from an outside source, that they will not cover it, and that I need to contact the city.
