Lighting Damage Claims
Although rare, lightning damage claims are becoming increasingly prevalent in Ireland. Damage from a lightning strike usually involves either the property catching fire or smouldering. However, power surges caused by lightning itself can also damage electronics, sockets, telephones, TVs and also computers. Furthermore, it can also cause damage to non-electronic devices. Concrete, brick or stone may also be split or fractured by the strike with the chimney’s being the most regularly affected. Plaster walls and glass inside the property are also regularly affected by lightning strikes.
