SAN FRANCISCO – The owner of a unit in San Francisco alleges a broken water pipe caused more than $100,000 in damage and her insurer failed to cover the full amount.

Diane Brusco filed a complaint on Jan. 31 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against Travelers Property Casualty Co. of America, Museum Tower Residences Association and Does 1-20 alleging breach of contract, negligence and intentional tort.

According to the complaint, on Feb. 21, 2017, her unit at 23C at 125 Third Street, San Francisco was damaged due to a broken pipe, which caused water damage to her unit. The plaintiff alleges the pipe was owned and controlled by Museum Tower Residences Association and that Travelers only paid $63,220.39 to cover the damages. The plaintiff alleges the cost to repair the damage was $101,346.

The plaintiff holds Travelers Property Casualty Co. of America, Museum Tower Residences Association and Does 1-20 responsible because Museum Tower Residences Association allegedly failed to maintain and repair the residential domestic water supply and Travelers allegedly violated the terms of the insurance policy by refusing to pay the full $101,346.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants for damages in the amount of $38,125.61, interest, costs of suit and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Gordon J. Finwall of Finwall Law Offices APC in San Jose.
