Can we sue our plumber for missing the water leak and charging us extra? Posted on August 10, 2011

We noticed foundation issues with our house and our insurance co. hired a plumber to see if there was a slab leak. Apparently there was and he missed it. A HUGE leak, approx 580 gal/day. After several weeks, our insurance claim was denied because there wasn't a sufficient leak to cause the foundation problems. We hired two other plumbers who found the leak. Apparently, the first plumber checked our water sprinkler system and NOT the right fresh water line. Can we sue the plumber for the additional home repair that has occurred because he missed this water leak?
