Basement floor cracks and lifting

The house in question is 33 years old, so I don't think
that "pirex" is the problem. I saw the problem, and
a few years ago, my friend had some water in her basement
and paid someone to dig around the foundation in
that area, and replace the drain tiles. Then they
filled the area with white rocks. It seems evident
that water got under the basement floor somehow,
and caused that area to crack and lift. It's
right in the area that she had fixed (or so she
thought). She's still waiting for the insurance
company to come up with something. I think she
should hire an independent house inspector to tell
her what the problem is. Looks like the guy who
supposedly fixed the drain tiles, didn't do the job
