The onslaught of new hail damage lawsuits does not appear to be ending anytime soon. The docket of every county in which a significant hail event has occurred in recent years sees numerous new hail damage lawsuit filings every day.

"Allstate was the one company that was the exception to this rule. Any water that comes in contact with the ground and then enters the home is classified as 'ground water', according to Allstate. This is reason enough for them to deny a claim. Other insurance companies view the sprinklers as part of the plumbing of the home, and would extend coverage if a sprinkler pipe broke and caused damage to the inside of the home, provided the water entered through a window well or stairwell and not through the foundation."

Scientists believe groundwater is slowly percolating along the faults and building up pressure, making movement on the faults much easier, the Los Angeles Times reported.
