Shedding Light on Lightning

Frequently, hi-tech claims are initially categorized as lightning losses. This is not readily verified without detailed investigation, but it’s a crucial point, since policy coverage often hinges on causation.

Our degreed engineers will identify the distinguishing characteristics of the damages to determine if an electrical event was a viable cause for the loss.

Once verified, we employ partnerships with multiple lightning activity resources, local weather reporting stations, and electric utilities to substantiate any reported lightning activity or power irregularities on the date of loss.

We then analyze this information to construct a clear justification of the lightning activity (or non-activity) in question.

We provide consulting services on all types of hi-tech losses, including:

  • Fire & Smoke Damage
  • Water Damage
  • Mold Damage
  • Theft
  • OTR (Over the Road) & Transportation
  • Commercial & Residential Property
  • Terrorism Related Losses
  • Post-Disaster Losses
  • Virus Losses, Data Losses & Data Deletion
  • CAT
