How to prove that insurance damage was caused by lightning
You’ll need to provide evidence to support your claim that lightning harmed your house and possessions. As soon as it is safe to step outside, take pictures of any holes, char marks, or other damage to your home’s exterior.
The electrical and plumbing systems of your house, however, can be harmed by a ground strike close to your house. In your yard, you might also want to keep an eye out for and photograph any char marks and holes.
Calling the appropriate plumbers and/or electricians to come out and inspect the damage is the next step. They can estimate the cost of any required replacements or repairs and offer evidence that the damage was brought on by a lightning strike. Both of these things must be provided when making a claim with your insurance provider.
Lightning strikes can result in electrical problems that affect the entire household, or anything plugged into the outlets. It’s typical to lose important appliances that are plugged into the electricity or are wired into your house, such your water heater or air conditioner. In order to make a full claim, make sure you examine each of these items.
