After a bathroom leak, who do I call first — my insurer or a plumber?

A pipe under my bathroom sink has leaked and caused some damage to the floor. Who do I call first in this situation, a plumber or my insurance company?

You should call a plumber first so any further damage can be prevented. Once the leak has been stopped and fixed, you can call your insurance company to make a claim so they can assess the damage. Your insurance company may deny the claim if they find that it was a slow leak that caused damage over a substantial period of time, rather than a sudden incident that would have been difficult to prevent.
