Common Lightning Damage Examples

Fire Damage

Lightning strikes can directly ignite fires in residential or commercial properties. This poses a significant risk to both the structural integrity of the building and the safety of its occupants. Assessing the extent of fire damage caused by lightning is a critical step in the insurance claim process.

Electrical Surge Damage

Electrical surges resulting from lightning are more common and can severely damage sensitive appliances, electronics, and the property's internal electrical systems. These surges can compromise the functionality of essential systems and devices within the property.

Total Loss

In some severe cases, a lightning strike can lead to a total loss, where the entire property is extensively damaged, rendering it uninhabitable or beyond repair. This situation presents a unique set of challenges in the claims process, as it involves assessing and claiming for the complete value of the property and its contents.

David Kanter is a super star. He helped file a claim for roof damage. He did an excellent job documenting the claim, brought in experts, and was able to escalate the negotiation process through appeals to get a favorable outcome for me. I recommend David to work through your claim if you are not getting resolution with your insurance company on your own.

So thankful for Property Damage Consultants. After damage left by our tenants, our homeowner insurance only wanted to reimburse us a fraction of the cost of the repairs. Thanks to Craig and his team, we received almost the full reimbursement costs. Great team to work with

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have been recommended to Craig and the professionals at Property Damage Consultants. We had a serious roof issue and we were concerned about placing a claim with our insurer. While we consider ourselves intelligent people, we did not have the expertise to deal with the hidden things, mold, hidden watger damage etc. Craig and his team scheduled all the experts for each discipline and thoroughly detailed the areas that were impacted. They produced professional reports that were evaluated and accepted by the insurance company and their own appraisers. Professional responses whenever we had questions, and very knowledgeable. We received a payment from the insurance company about 2 weeks ago and we are able to repair what we need to effwectively. We cannot recommend Craig and his folks any stronger. Thank you Property Damage Consultants!!!!!

Craig and his team handled my water damage claim in the most efficient and professional way possible and helped me recover all the money I needed to restore my house back to where it was. I couldn't be happier with the result of my claim, the whole process was effortless on my end and PDC handled all communications with my insurance company on my behalf until it was fully resolved. I would highly recommend Craig and his team to anyone who wants a fast and efficient resolution to any insurance claim. Two thumbs up!!!
