A lightning damage claim can add up fast, and an unbiased review by Licensed Professional Engineers is necessary to determine if a power surge event occurred and the true extent of any resulting damage. Evaluating each piece of equipment in the claim for evidence of lightning damage is essential. We document each piece of equipment’s model number, serial number, and attempt to verify the age of equipment and type of damage. Our power surge claims investigators can also determine whether a piece of electrical equipment is a total loss or if repairs can restore it to working order.
This thorough attention to detail and meticulous evaluation process ensures that our surge and lightning damage claims investigators get an accurate representation of the damage’s extent. This also provides a clearer understanding as to which equipment failings can reasonably be attributed to the electrical surge or lightning strike, as we control for other factors such as the age of the equipment and its average shelf life.
