How Sinkholes Form

Sinkholes are formed beneath the earth's surface as fluctuations in the water-table cause groundwater to pass through soluble bedrock. Erosion then causes voids or large cavities in the bedrock. After enough erosion has occurred, these underground empty spaces collapse under their own weight causing a sinkhole.

Concerned About Sinkholes

Sinkhole activity can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare. In the United States, sinkholes occur most often in Florida, Tennessee, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania. Many of Florida's lakes and ponds were formed from sinkhole activity. They often cause significant damage to buildings and property. Property owners can easily find themselves at a significant disadvantage to the insurance company when it comes to dealing with the damage caused by a sinkhole. A knowledgeable and experienced sinkhole attorney can help a property owner through every stage of their claim, from filing to final settlement.
